Big Sam Allardyce and Alan Pardew returning to the fold in the same week? What a Ramble bonanza/sign of just how many chances these particular British managers get. Big Sam at least gets a warm welcome to Goodison Park after Wayne Rooney’s midweektacular hat trick against despair’s West Ham, Man City keep up their daunting run and Arsenal turn a corner. Again.
Elsewhere there’s a surprising career change for a croaky favourite, an unnecessary banishment, a gun and a Quantum Leap reference that really shouldn’t be so hard to understand.
