Everton fans will never miss an opportunity to bash manager Sam Allardyce, even when he’s talking about his side’s first away win since December.
Cenk Tosun was the star of the show for Everton on Saturday, as the Turk grabbed both goals in the Toffees’ dramatic 2-1 win at Stoke City.
Allardyce claimed back in February that Tosun wasn’t playing because he was struggling with the cold, but the 26 year-old striker has since scored four goals in three games.
If he was struggling the cold, he certainly didn’t show it on Saturday as he buried two clinical poacher’s goals in the snow at Stoke.
Everton fans have been growing increasingly frustrated not only with Big Sam’s uninspiring tactics but also his demeanour, and many are desperate for the club to replace him with Shakhtar Donetsk’s Paulo Fonseca this summer.
Allardyce hailed Tosun as a “complete finisher” in his post match comments, which has draw plenty of criticism from the Goodison faithful, who have wanted Tosun to get more minutes since he joined.

Everton have home matches against Manchester City and Liverpool after the international break, so Allardyce and the fans will at least be together in hoping the Turk continues his fantastic form.

Fancy that. You play a player in his rightful position and he scores you goals!
