Everton Set to Appoint Sam Allardyce

Big Sam brought in to steady the ship at struggling Everton

Sam Allardyce unveils Everton escape plan, including what to do with Wayne Rooney – before taking the job

Allardyce said: "I've always thought Everton was a great club". But the chance to turn around Everton's faltering ship has lured him back, and Allardyce is expected to have a watching brief at Goodison Park on Wednesday night.

David Unsworth remains in caretaker charge as the Toffees face West Ham at Goodison Park at 20:00 GMT.

Allardyce will take charge of the team in the next 48 hours.

Allardyce is returning to management six months after resigning from his post at Crystal Palace, having said at the time that he had "no ambitions to take another job".

However, after a few months out of the game and after much speculation, Allardyce clearly had a change of heart as he was finally announced as the new Everton boss on Thursday.

Everton are now sitting 17th in the table, two points ahead of the Hammers.

Take Two: Will Alabama back its way into the CFB Playoff?
Those three wins - plus a conference championship - would all be better than anything that current No. 5 Alabama has accomplished. Auburn and Georgia will collide in the SEC Championship Game, the first to be played in the new Mercedes-Benz Dome in Atlanta.

Everton sit 17th in the Premier League, just two points out of the relegation zone, and have already been eliminated from contention for the Europa League knockout rounds after claiming just one point from five matches.

The 63-year-old ex-England boss is the permanent successor to Ronald Koeman, who was sacked in October with the club 18th in the Premier League.

After years of being unable to come close to matching the financial clout of the Premier League's big guns, Everton finally had significant backing thanks to new owner Farhad Moshiri. So with that in mind it's no wonder Everton are throwing a lot of money at a manager who's never been relegated.

His first game will be at home to Huddersfield on Saturday, and he will no doubt want to cap his first game off with a victory.

Everton's communications department were unaware of this and an embarrassing situation was made worse when bookmaker Paddy Power released quotes given to them by Allardyce two weeks ago in which he dissected the team's problems.

They have conceded more than twice as many goals as they have scored having failed to replace leading scorer Romelu Lukaku following his summer departure for Manchester United.
