Everton supporters have been in fine voice in the Transfer Tavern in the last few weeks since the appointment of Sam Allardyce as manager, who has masterminded their rise from third-bottom in the Premier League to ninth in the table.
The former England boss took over from the sacked Ronald Koeman at the end of November and has since overseen four wins and three draws from his seven games in charge, moving the Toffees away from the relegation mire.
