The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling rather bleak this afternoon…
It’s been a very tough few weeks for the Toffees, and things got even worse over the weekend. Yet another defeat came at the hands of Burnley, leaving optimism at an all-time low.
They’ve looked very poor all season long, and with just two wins so far this season, something has to give at Goodison Park.
However, it doesn’t appear as though that ‘thing’ is going to be Ronald Koeman – with Jim White revealing that Everton owner Farhad Moshiri has given Koeman a vote of confidence despite their recent struggles.

It certainly seems to be a show of faith from the owner, but Everton fans don’t seem to be buying it. To the contrary, a lot of Evertonians have responded to the news with their own prediction: an imminent sacking.
Of course, so often in the past, managers have lost their jobs within weeks of such a statement, and fans don’t expect this to be any different.
See what they’ve had to say below…
That usually means he'll get sacked before January. No way he's getting anymore money to spend in January
