What next for the sacked Sam Allardyce

American writer Mike Yaconelli once said, “Immorality is much more than adultery and dishonesty: it is living drab, colourless, dreary, stale, unimaginative lives.” And while Yaconelli was referring to God and sin, it is a theory that quite nicely sums up why Sam Allardyce has been almost universally shunned at Everton.

Jairo Riedewald to Crystal Palace: Eagles Changing Colours

In the 2015-16 season, there was a time when Stoke City fans started calling their team Stokecelona. In that season Stoke had more La Masia graduates in their squad than Arsenal and for a part of that season, Stoke City did play an uncharacteristically passing brand of football. If initial signs are anything to go by, we might see Crystal Palace, another team that is traditionally known for deep defending and direct football, play a more passing game. The first …
