In my last article, I raised the question of which manager Everton would need to move forward…. enter Sam Allardyce.

Like him, Love him or hate him, he is the man the board have gone with and is, therefore, the man to bring in his own style and his own players to make a mark on the premier league after a very much indifferent year.

Don’t get me wrong, I have my own reservations on the man but it would be a bit harsh on the fella if we was to call for his head with no transfer window behind and also, inheriting a very lacklustre squad at best.

Here, I will look into the players we could look into buying to take us out of the slump we have now found ourselves in. The obvious questions will also follow as to who will leave the club…but let’s keep it positive… for now
