Sam Allarydce reveals the 2 reasons which convinced him to join Everton

Sam Allarydce reveals the 2 reasons which convinced him to join Everton

Win, lose or draw, the club are ready to unveil Sam Allardyce as their new manager.

Everton fans have taken to Twitter to rage about Sammy Lee's impeding appointment as assistant manager.

U23 boss David Unsworth was named caretaker on a short-term basis but the former Everton defender has struggled to improve results over the past month.

Everton said in a statement: "Sam Allardyce will be at USM Finch Farm this afternoon to finalise terms on becoming the new manager of Everton Football Club".

At the time, Everton were chucking increasingly silly amounts of money at Watford in the vain hope of luring Marco Silva to Merseyside, with Allardyce withdrawing his application after tiring of the dilly-dallying.

A loss would see Everton sucked into the relegation zone.

The bookmaker replaced Chang Beer as Everton's shirt sponsor in the summer, signing a five-year agreement with the Goodison Park club.

Allardyce has been out of work since resigning as Crystal Palace managerin May.

Everton now sit one place above the Premier League relegation zone after 13 games, having lost four of their last seven league games.

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.

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.

He previously held talks with the club's hierarchy only to announce he had withdrawn because he felt they were hesitating.
