Everton fans in the Tavern aren’t happy with current manager, Sam Allardyce, as high hopes for the season in August were quickly extinguished to leave the taste of disappointment in the mouths of a number of Toffees.
Sam Allardyce, or “Big Sam” as he’s known by most English football fans, can’t seem to catch a break with Everton fans. The ex-England boss made his name in the Premier League with over 250 matches in charge of Bolton over a spell of seven and a half years. He’s also managed Blackburn, Sunderland, Newcastle, West Ham and Crystal Palace, his total of seven different Premier League clubs making him the manager to have the most jobs since the league was formed.
However, after being appointed England manager in July 2016, Big Sam lasted only one game and three months before being sacked after allegations of malpractice were made against him. After briefly retiring following his 67 days in charge of England, Allardyce took the Everton job with the club sitting in a dismal 13th place on the 30th November last year. Since taking over Big Sam has improved Everton’s fortunes somewhat, lifting them into 9th, sitting just three points of off a 7th place finish and the potential European football that could come with it.
Here’s what Everton fans are saying:
I want a manager I can support. I can’t follow sam. He’s so arrogant and his negativity it’s embarrassing

He really doesn’t come across as being arsed, blames past managers, blames players, bemoans the fact he’s under pressure. Admits that we haven’t got a style! EFC please sack him now and act fast to replace him with a 5-7 year manager.

“Write this season off” we’re 3 points off 7th which might well get European football back. Amongst several problems with Allardyce is the fact that he simply doesn’t have the ambition to get the club to a point where we can challenge the top 6.

So he hasn't been sacked yet? Shame. Was hoping to never see his fat head again at @Everton. Roll on May and this buffoon can head off to Dubai for the rest of his days. Feel free to pass on my comments during the presser #AllardyceOut

Dare you to sack him mid interview. Go on. Double dare ya.
An absolute stain on the club's history having this fat gravy swilling crook in charge. I look forward to retaking my seat once he has been given his marching orders. Get him out.
