Everton hope to hire Sam Allardyce as manager imminently – sources – fifa15guide.net

The FC crew react to reports Sam Allardyce is set to take over an Everton side bracing for a potential relegation fight.
The FC guys answer your tweets on whether PSG or Man City will make the UCL final and if Sam Allardyce can save Everton.

Everton are hoping to conclude a deal to hire Sam Allardyce as manager in time for Wednesday’s Premier League clash with West Ham United, sources have told ESPN FC.

Discussions between Everton and Allardyce’s representatives have taken place since Monday, with further talks planned on Tuesday, and sources have said there is a growing confidence within Goodison Park that the club’s six-week search for a replacement for the sacked Ronald Koeman is close to an end.

The talks come as sources told ESPN FC’s Peter O’Rourke that Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca has turned down the Everton job to stay with the Ukrainian giants.

Allardyce, who had publicly ruled himself out of the Everton job earlier this month due to the Merseyside club’s desire to recruit Watford manager Marco Silva, is now ready to accept the challenge of steering Everton away from the threat of relegation, however, and could be in charge for the visit of David Moyes’s West Ham on Wednesday.

The 63-year-old has been out of work since resigning as Crystal Palace manager at the end of last season, with the former England boss claiming at the time that he had retired from management.

Sam Allardyce has been out of management since leaving Crystal Palace at the end of last season.

But after expressing an interest in the United States job following the departure of Bruce Arena in the wake of the country’s failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, Allardyce admitted he was open to a return to Premier League management after Koeman’s departure last month.

With Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri favouring Silva, Allardyce insisted he would not pursue the chance to manage the club.

But Everton’s dismal run of form under caretaker-manager David Unsworth — they have suffered five defeats in seven games in all competitions — and their failure to prise Silva from Watford has forced Moshiri to accept the need to look elsewhere and turn to Allardyce.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Allardyce is keen to appoint former Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare, who worked under the 63-year-old during his brief spell as England manager, as his assistant at Everton.

Pep Guardiola: Man City players will have say on January transfer business – fifa15guide.net

Janusz Michallik credits Man City for staying true to their formula after they secured their 11th straight Premier League win.

MANCHESTER — Pep Guardiola will speak to his Manchester City players to see if they are happy before deciding on his January transfer business.

City are in the middle of an 18-game winning streak, with Guardiola using a core of his first-team squad while other players such as Ilkay Gundogan, Eliaquim Mangala, Claudio Bravo and Yaya Toure have not made any Premier League starts this season.

Guardiola has hinted that he may look to strengthen his squad in the transfer window and the Catalan doesn’t want anyone at the club who doesn’t want to be there.

“In the winter break and the window in the summer time, we are going to [assess] everything and if they are happy or not,” he told a news conference ahead of City’s clash with Southampton on Wednesday night.

“If they are comfortable being in the position they had in the past — playing or not playing — they have to decide because the future will be like this. Always we want players that want to stay here.”

City maintained their eight-point lead at the top with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town on Sunday.

They had to wait until the 84th minute before Raheem Sterling’s winner in a game they dominated with 80 percent possession.

Pep Guardiola has led Manchester City to an 18-game winning streak.

Guardiola was delighted with how his side stayed patient and stuck to their passing principles, particularly ahead of the game against Southampton, who held out for a point at the Etihad last season.

“That’s good. There is no panic. And in the last 15 minutes when we changed Vincent Kompany for Gabriel Jesus, it sends a message to the team that we still want to win,” he said.

“We believe in what we want to do. It happened because last season we were working on that as well. The results help a lot for the mentality of the team to believe a little bit more. Winning games in a row helps us believe in what we want to do.”

Guardiola will have a full squad to choose from tomorrow with the exception of injured duo Benjamin Mendy and John Stones.

But he faces a dilemma on whether to select Kompany, who has only just returned from a calf strain, or select Mangala — who has not started a Premier League game since May 2016.

“I am really impressed with his behaviour in training. He hasn’t played regularly until now and he always accepts it,” Guardiola said of the French defender.

“He has his specific qualities and that is so important in the league sometimes. We’re going to use him when we believe we need him.”

Arsenal appoint ex-Barcelona sporting director Raul Sanllehi on fifa15guide

The ESPN FC panel discuss how Arsenal’s winning mentality has continued to erode under Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal have appointed Barcelona’s outgoing director of football Raul Sanllehi as their new head of football relations.

Sanllehi’s contract with Barcelona runs out on Dec. 1, and he will move to the Premier League club Arsenal to take up his new role in February.

The club announced that Sanllehi would “lead future player negotiations” alongside manager Arsene Wenger, chief executive Ivan Gazidis and contract negotiator Huss Fahmy as well as “represent and support the club with international and domestic governing bodies.”

Gazidis told the club’s official website: “In the past three years we have supplemented our team with more top-class expertise across every aspect of our football operations.

“Raul’s appointment is another important step in developing the infrastructure we need at the club to take everything we do to the next level. Raul has extensive contacts across the football world and has been directly involved in some of the biggest transfers in Europe in recent years. We look forward to him bringing that expertise to Arsenal.”

Raul Sanllehi reportedly played a key role in Barcelona’s signing of Neymar.

Sanllehi’s arrival will be another major part in the ongoing reshuffle of Arsenal’s backroom staff, with CEO Ivan Gazidis having also brought in Borussia Dortmund’s chief scout Sven Mislintat earlier this month to head up recruitment operations.

Sanllehi has been credited with playing a key role in Barcelona’s signing of Neymar from Brazilian club Santos and has a reputation as one of Europe’s most respected transfer negotiators.

The backroom shuffle by Gazidis is seen by many as an attempt to prepare Arsenal for life after Wenger, who has kept a number of key staff members on for a large part of his 21-year reign as manager.

Arsenal announced in September that transfer negotiator Dick Law was stepping down, while chief scout Steve Rowley has also taken on a lighter workload since Mislintat’s appointment and is expected to eventually retire.

fifa15guide | FUT 18 Mauro Icardi (86) IF Player Review

Here’s another FIFA 18 Ultimate Team player review and this time we’re taking a look at first IF (in-form) Mauro Icardi 86 rated card. Check out the full HD video below or read on to see what score we gave it.

The great thing about this card is the attacking position as the Argentinian is not blessed with lightning quick pace so he relies on getting his positioning right in the final third and boy does he get it right! Whether it’s a drop of the shoulder or getting goal-side of the defenders this card is perfect for getting you goals and lots of them.

His shooting ability is incredible with his overall stats being 80 pace, 78 dribbling, 28 defence, 72 physical, 65 passing and a whopping 87 shooting which is incredibly overpowered.

If you get the chance to shoot then it’s literally in the back of the opponents net every time and that’s exactly what you want from a striker. As for his heading which is his second biggest strength, that’s at an impressive 90 in-game stats and 94 jumping. His specialtie is poacher and he has the power header trait.

If you’re building an Italian Calcio A squad or even if you aren’t you can glitch him on at half time, then this card is an absolute must! Considering he’s going in the transfer market for around 50K coins as well it’s an absolute steal. The price of the IF will drop as Icardi gets more throughout the season as well.
