Sam Allardyce:"Everton is far greater than Newcastle and West Ham"
Sam Allardyce: I never meant to compare Everton to West Ham and Newcastle - we are much greater

Sam Allardyce has tried to appease disgruntled Everton fans upset he compared their side to West Ham and Newcastle by insisting the Merseysiders have a much richer history than his previous clubs.

Everton fans took exception to Allardyce’s comments last week, but he felt they were misconstrued when he suggested the demands at Goodison Park were similar to those at St James’ Park and East London.

"Everton is far greater than Newcastle and West Ham, but every fan has great demands and when there are big crowds the demand is bigger. That's what it's all about," said Allardyce.

"For me Everton is completely different to Newcastle or West Ham but it was just a comparison. It wasn't anything other than that.

"The ambition at Everton is different to Newcastle and different to West Ham, but if you don't play as well as they expect you to play and don't entertain they show their disapproval and that's what you have to deal with as a manager."

Successive away defeats have left Everton with work left to guarantee their Premier League survival. They play Brighton at Goodison Park this weekend, with Allardyce hoping a more positive conclusion to the campaign can convince majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri to give him a chance to lead the club beyond the end of the season.

"Rather than short term I want it to be a long term appointment," he said.

Allardyce says Everton are 'in a difficult period at the moment'
"I came out of retirement because there was a long term plan at Everton and a long term aspect going forward that I was excited to be part of.

"I understand the history of Everton football club and the amount of mates I have who were here when Everton was very successful - Peter Reid, Andy Gray, Paul Bracewell, Adrian Heaths – means I know all about Everton and what it demands and what we've got to try and achieve. That was an exciting prospect.

"Of course, there are tough times and times when you have to draw in, close the doors and stay focused on what you want to try and achieve.


"It's very disappointing for everybody, myself included, that we have slipped to where we have slipped after we put ourselves in such a fantastic position in the early stages of me walking through the door."

It remains to be seen if Moshiri’s vision of the club going into the next campaign has Allardyce in charge.

"I'm having talks with him but obviously those talks are confidential," said Allardyce.

"We're in a difficult period at the moment, yes, but we have to try and turn that around on Saturday. It's my responsibility to get the team to play at a level we know they can play."

`This is a bloke who went to games for decades - so you'd think that he'd know a thing or two - but he grouped us as a similar size club to fucking BIRMINGHAM CITY`.

Gotta laugh at SOLD0 LOVE though!

This is a bloke who went to games for decades - so you'd think that he'd know a thing or two - but he grouped us as a similar size club to fucking BIRMINGHAM CITY.

You know, that shit club that the cheapskate wankers used to own who only get 15k gates and have spent most of the last 30/40 years outside of the top-flight. A club that has only won two League Cups (one of them only recently) who we've pinched their better players from before e.g. Julian Dicks and Matthew Upson.

Thank fuck SOLD0 packed it in as football clearly isn't for him.

I liked the way Sky corrected him when he kept including the game against us when David Unsworth was still in charge & Allardyce just watching in his win/loss figures.
Can’t see him being there next season

Everything that comes out of this fat pricks mouth can be bottled down to - when thing are great it’s all me, when things ain’t great it’s the team.

Everton fans are wanting him out - with a wry smile “be careful what you wish for”

To be fair to Everton they thought Koeman was the man but things went wrong.
They wanted Marco Silva but when he wasn’t available they decided they needed a dull tedious journeyman to steady the ship for the season and allow them to make a proper appointment when there are better options around in the summer.

West Ham , Newcastle & Everton are similar. All of their fans think Allardyce is a boring cunt and don’t want to have him managing their club.

Re: Sam Allardyce:"Everton is far greater than Newcastle and West Ham"
To be fair that’s not far from the truth! but im still surprised Everton appointed the Oaf? Always come across as a well run club who up until the silly money arrived were a realistic chance of winning the old Div 1 and it was only really Liverpool, Arsenal and ManU who were bigger more successful clubs, they have fallen from grace, but still better than both us and Newcastle.

Both us and Newcastle have a lot in common, particularly in recent years, both owned by cunts, both perennial yoyo clubs, both underachieve but still draw big crowds and following, both look like nothing will change in the near future, both have had Pardew and the Oaf as manager, and both each time things start to look up, implode….
