Everton fans are once again showing their displeasure for manager Sam Allardyce as the ex-England boss claims he wants to be at the club next season.
Blues fans haven’t had much to cheer recently, their dismal away form has only been partially rescued by a few good home results, and the uninspiring football is turning fans against the manager.
The 2-1 defeat at Burnley made it six consecutive away losses in the Premier League for the Toffees, and trips to four relegation battling teams to come could bring further criticism for the manager.
Allardyce claimed in his press conference today that there is a long-term plan at Everton, and he does not plan on leaving at the end of the season.
Allardyce asked if he wants to be at the club beyond of season: "Of course….I came out of retirement because there was a long-term plan at Everton."

Still, it would be a surprise to see Big Sam at the club next season, especially after he smirked at questions about the fans frustrations on Saturday.
Many fans saw Allardyce as a short-term option all along, hoping the club would look to pursue a more attacking coach after Big Sam ensured safety from relegation.
Today’s club tweet asking about a potential line-up for this weekend’s clash with Brighton has given fans an excuse to bash the manager again, and they aren’t best pleased with his press conference comments either.

With a new manager picking the team, Steve Walsh fired and Lookman back where he belongs.

he just doesn’t fit our club. Like Carragher said he is our version of hodgson was for them. He needs to go now. It’s already turning toxic and it’s only going to get worse

Can someone ask him why he was smirking at the fans who booed yet another dismal display

He’s still retirement I think. Or hibernation.
