Everton fans here in the Tavern are loving life under Sam Allardyce, after picking up their 3rd win in just his 4th game in charge.
The Toffees are currently enjoying their best run of form this season, after going unbeaten in their last 5 games, as they rise from the depths of relegation despair to an impressive 10th position.
Indeed, after seeing the departure of Romelu Lukaku many fans have been fearing the worst without a prolific-striker at the club, but after securing the services of a certain Wayne Rooney, the thought of losing the Belgian soon sunk to the back of their minds.
After seeing their former-striker go on a torrid run of 4 games without a Premier League goal, many fans were pleased that they’d cashed in on the forward and got themselves an upgrade in the process, after Rooney hit an inspired period of form on his way to scoring 7 goals in the 13 Premier League games this season, something that the Belgian has only managed to achieve in the 15 games prior to Wednesday night.
Now on 207 all-time goals in the Premier League goal-scorers list, Shearer’s 260 looks ever-the-more achievable.
Looking to improve on both his goal-scoring run, and the sides unbeaten-streak, he managed to bag his 8th in what was a vital goal for the Blues, that saw the Everton Twitter account post a GIF displaying news of his goal, on their way to a 1-0 win on Tyneside.
