Everton Won A Europa League Game With Some Children And No Manager

Viernes, 08 Dic, 2017

West Ham fans vehemently demonstrated against a perceived lack of footballing identity and finesse under the Allardyce regime; rival managers have further bolstered this perception with Jose Mourinho even going so far as to describe it as '19th-century football'.

Allardyce underwent heart surgery back in December 2009 to fix a narrow coronary artery during his time in charge of then-Premier League side Blackburn Rovers.

He said: "To get a win and a clean sheet is a decent start".

The youngster has scooped Under-18 and Under-23 Premier League titles with Everton's youth sides and has 14 caps for Ireland Under-21s.

Such a view underplays his achievements with Bolton, which demonstrate Allardyce's legendary pragmatism can be adapted into a more free-flowing style with the right players and funding.

Mirallas and Hornby were both denied by Kissas' legs but he would be beaten again eight minutes from time by Vlasic's low finish. You are always learning about your players and forming opinions about them.

The likes of Sandro Ramirez, Davy Klaassen, Muhamed Besic and Joel Robles will all be handed opportunities to impress the club's new management structure, while James McCarthy should see game time as he continues his recovery from a troublesome hamstring strain.

"The overall result was the most pleasing thing".

The 20-year-old struck twice in the first-half to set the Toffees up comfortably for the rest of the match.

They have suffered four defeats in five games in the group stages of the competition.

Everton are bottom of Group E and unable to qualify for the next round.
