Steve Round: 'Sam Allardyce could take Everton into top six'

Steve Round: 'Sam Allardyce could take Everton into top six'

Everton are now 15th in the Premier League, with one win from their last five league matches.

With current caretaker David Unsworth looking increasingly unlikely to get the gig, this has brought Everton back to Allardyce - who representatives have had contact with The Toffees, but suggestions that the former England man has met with the club have been denied by him.

The 40-year-old impressed with Hull City last season despite their relegation, and has already turned Watford in a unsafe Premier League outfit, though no points from the last three games has been disappointing.

Speaking on The Debate, Merson said: "This is where it has taken Simeone now".

"People are saying he might be a bit big for the club, but he's been around a long time".

West Ham confirmed the appointment of David Moyes on Tuesday, handing the Scot a deal until the end of the season as they look to stay in the Premier League. As such, most football fans just couldn't understand why one of the best managers in the world would want to leave Atletico half-way through the season to take charge of a Premier League team in a relegation battle. "The Premier League is where everybody wants to be".

The picture may be clearer on Wednesday after the Everton board convenes, with Moshiri and Kenwright keen to reach a decision before the club's next game, at fellow strugglers Crystal Palace on Saturday week. Ferguson told the players that if they were not going to train properly, they should go inside, at which point Schneiderlin and Mirallas took off their bibs and headed to the changing rooms before going home.
