With Everton being absolutely ugly at football this season under Ronald Koeman they decided that the threat of losing out on all that money was too great so they sacked him and spent a month trying to find the flawless manager.

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

In what is turning out to be a jolly good day for Proper Football Men™ that Know The League™, it's being reported that Sam Allardyce has agreed to take over at Everton, a little over two weeks after initial talks between the two parties dwindled to nothing.

Allardyce returns to club management six months after resigning from Crystal Palace, having saved the London side from relegation.

However the 58-year-old was deemed surplus to requirement at his boyhood club during Kenny Dalglish's tenure in 2011, ending a 35-year association.

Following the appointment of Allardyce today, SportPesa posted a weird joke at the club's expense. Moshiri will want him to initially consolidate the team and then give a strong platform for another, probably more glamorous name to take Everton to the next level.

The Toffees, who have sunk to 17th in the division, have also been linked with Republic of Ireland coach Martin O'Neill and Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca since sacking Ronald Koeman in October.

"I have no ambitions to take another job", he added at the time, "I simply want to be able to enjoy all the things you can not really enjoy with the 24/7 demands of managing any football club, let alone one in the Premier League".

On stepping down from Palace, the former West Ham, Newcastle, Blackburn and Bolton manager indicated that he would be retiring, saying: "This is the right time for me".

However, Allardyce did watch his side dismantle West Ham 4-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday night, courtesy of a Wayne Rooney hat-trick, so there is reason to be optimistic.
