Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern will be scratching their heads at the latest remarks their former manager has made in a recent interview.
Sam Allardyce was sacked from his role at Goodison Park earlier in the week, much to the delight of the locals as they grew frustrated with the way his side performed, despite keeping them up in the Premier League.
However, the former West Ham United boss believes that it was just a minority of fans that had wanted him out, believing that he had won over the majority of the support, as per an interview with talkSPORT.
He said: ‘I would say most of the Everton fans didn’t want me out… the fans who show discontent are always more vocal.
‘The club was in a very difficult position, but it improved as time went on. If it wasn’t enough for the Everton fans at the time who were showing some discontent, I think there were certainly more fans who were happy with what we were doing than the ones that weren’t.’
And these comments are likely to baffle many of our resident Evertonians, several of whom have been calling for Allardyce’s departure for some time now, with more and more fans growing increasingly irritated as the season progressed.
Landlord’s Verdict: The Everton fans in the Tavern will be confused with the statement that Allardyce has made about his tenure, with the majority seemingly feeling the other way about it.
The Toffees locals will now be expecting the club to bring in a manager who can produce the positive results, whilst also playing attractive football at the same time.
