  • Big Sam brought in to steady the ship at struggling Everton

Former England boss Allardyce ruled himself out of the running earlier this month, claiming he did not feel the Toffees were convinced he was the right man.

Everton are set to hire Sam Allardyce as manager, ending a prolonged search following the October sacking of Ronald Koeman.

The pair worked under the veteran Premier League manager during his most recent spell in management with Crystal Palace which ended in May.

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, Miss South Africa, won the Miss Universe crown on Sunday night, November 26. After that incident, Nel-Peters chose to start training other women in personal self-defense.

However, after a few months out of the game and after much speculation, Allardyce clearly had a change of heart as he was finally announced as the new Everton boss on Thursday.

While fans of other clubs might find it amusing, it's anything but for Everton fans.

He will get his first look at his new squad, Everton facing one of his former clubs West Ham.

This morning, Begaye appeared on cable news to discuss Trump's comments and how they were racially offensive. In closing, the Caucasian said that accusing Trump of intentionally offending the Navajos was absurd.

When asked about Allardyce, Unsworth said: "Sam is a top manager, but I think it would be wrong of me to talk about individuals.I have seen the names that have been bandied about - all top managers". Obviously, the club has gone through a hard spell and hopefully I can put that behind us as quickly as possible and start looking upwards again. "So I continue to do what I was asked to do five weeks ago".

Everton spent over £100 million in the summer, but they have underachieved massively and now occupy an extremely disappointing 13th place in the Premier League.

The 63-year-old will manage his first match when Everton host Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Everton are now two points above the relegation zone going into Wednesday night's match against West Ham.
