Many Everton fans have been left to slam Sam Allardyce after he made some comments on his time as manager of the Goodison Park faithful.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of his team’s away trip to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, the West Brom boss said (via Football Daily): “Everton have had big spending power, if I’d of had that spending power I’d be wanting to get them top 4.”
Should Everton have sacked Allardyce?
Several supporters of the Merseyside club have taken much offence to these claims, given that he spent a decent chunk of money on the likes of Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott when he was the coach at the Toffees.
Allardyce only lasted one term at the Blues, as they missed out on European qualification with a pretty measly 8th-placed finish in 2017/18 (Sky Sports).
Considering he spent that much money and could not guide them into Europe, the Englishman has left a sour taste with a lot of fans at the club.
Everton fan reaction to Allardyce comments
These EFC supporters slammed Allardyce after hearing his comments on Twitter, with one fan even going as far as to say that he is ‘utterly clueless’:
“Allardyce spent £50m on Cenk Tosun & Theo Walcott in his 7 months at Everton. He’s utterly clueless.”
“Didn’t you spend nearly fifty million on Tosun and Walcott? When you’ve got money you just throw it away.”
“He could have spent £500 million at Everton but the football on show was slow, defensive and boring so would have been sacked anyway”
“He spent 50m in 1 window at Everton, Ancelotti has spent 60m in 3 windows. Of the 2 players he signed one has been let go on loan to run his contract out and leave on a free and the other is out on loan back in Turkey at the team we signed him from. Thank god he never got more.”
“Deluded this fella.”
