Sponsors take the piss out of Everton after Allardyce appointment

Everton have confirmed the appointment of Sam Allardyce as their new manager.

Lee is a supporter of Everton's bitter local rivals Liverpool and, as well as being a player for the Reds, he was once a part of the coaching staff at Anfield, arriving there in 2008 to serve as assistant manager to Rafa Benitez. That's hard when you're losing but the win last night over West Ham and the magnificent atmosphere around Goodison, which was just brilliant, well that's lifted everybody around the club.

Caretaker boss David Unsworth will remain in charge for Wednesday's key clash against West Ham, with Allardyce due to be in the hotseat for the first time against Huddersfield on Saturday.

This will be the 10th English club managerial position of the 63-year-old's career, with Allardyce most recently having guided Crystal Palace to safety last season.

At that time, Allardyce stated that he had "no ambitions to take another job".

Koeman guided Everton to seventh place last season - his first in charge - but was sacked the day after a 5-2 home defeat by Arsenal on 22 October.

It's five weeks since the Toffees dismissed Dutchman Ronald Koeman thanks to a poor run of form that saw them slump to third from bottom in the Premier League.

Everton's chief problem is clear to see.

Former England boss Sam Allardyce is being strongly linked with the vacancy and talks are said to be taking place between the club and his representatives.

Having spent heavy to bring in reinforcements over the summer, Everton have struggled to click this season; the Toffees now sit 17th in the Premier League, two points above the drop zone, and have already been dumped out of the Europa League, following a disastrous showing in the group stage.
