Everton will be heading into the summer with rebuilding plans, and fans in the Transfer Tavern will be expecting a number of changes to take place at Goodison Park in the next few months.
The Toffees in the bar have not been happy with the way their side has played this season, with a number of the locals disappointed with the way the campaign has turned out after a promising summer of spending.
The club spent almost £200 million on players – however, they found themselves in the bottom three fairly on, with Ronald Koeman losing his job in the process. Sam Allardyce was brought in to save the club from the drop, but despite succeeding, a number of fans are unhappy with the way he is guiding them.
The locals have been vocal in their criticism of the former West Ham United manager and have told the board that they want a new man in charge and, according to a report in The Times, it appears that they are considering a change.
And that’s because they are reporting that Porto boss Sergio Conceiçao has been identified as the man they would want to replace Big Sam, having led the Portuguese outfit to their first Primeira Liga title in five years.
The appointment of Allardyce was assumed to be on an initial short-term deal – however, the club failed to bring Marco Silva in and will certainly want to avoid missing out on another talented coach in the future.
Landlord’s Verdict: The Everton locals in the Tavern will be pleased that the club are looking at a possible new managerial candidate, with many growing increasingly frustrated with what Allardyce has achieved at Goodison Park.
Despite retaining their Premier League status, the punters are unhappy with the inconsistent performances from their side and feel Big Sam is not the man to help them go to the next stage, but Porto chief Conceiçao, having led the team to the domestic title this term, certainly could be.
