Sam Allardyce ready to lock horns with David Moyes

The match will be the Scot's last home game in charge of Everton ahead of his summer switch to Manchester United to replace Sir Alex Ferguson as boss.

Allardyce, who used to coach Moyes at Preston, said: "It will be the last game at home for David as manager so it will be an emotional affair for him, but I'm sure, knowing David as I do, that he will be able to control and calm his emotions and do his very best to get the team to win.

"I don't expect any favours whatsoever and I hope the crowd appreciate what he has done and that they show their appreciation.

"I think David Moyes is the perfect candidate for Manchester United.

"He will bring the same sort of stability and he will try and emulate what Sir Alex Ferguson has done. It will be the hardest job he has ever faced.

"It's an enormous move for him and his career then has gone to the next level, but I don't think anyone can do anything other than applaud him for what he has done for Everton over the last 11 years."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
