Everton fans are split after Allardyce comments

Everton fans are split on the future of Sam Allardyce, after his side reached the crucial 40-point mark last weekend.

When Sam Allardyce arrived at Goodison Park to replace Ronald Koeman, there was a feeling he was just a stopgap option for the club, and that he would move on once Premier league safety was delivered.

Allardyce is a specialist at keeping clubs in the Premier League, and he has worked his magic with Everton, helping them reach the marker that most deem to indicate survival – 40 points.

Allardyce spoke about hitting 40 points after the win at Stoke, and said they are now preparing for next season.

Everton fans might have something to say about that though, and many are calling for his head now their safety is insured. There have been plenty of links to Shakhtar manager Paulo Fonseca in recent weeks.

Still, there are a few who think Big Sam deserves a summer transfer window and a fresh start, given how he turned the clubs fortunes around this season.
