Everton fans can’t believe Sam Allardyce’s latest comments, after the Blues’ boss said Saturday’s Swansea draw was a good result.
Everton’s poor start to 2018 continued on Saturday as they dropped two points at the Liberty Stadium in a 1-1 draw.
The Toffees have enjoyed wins against Brighton and Stoke recently, but a heavy defeat to Manchester City followed by drab draws against Liverpool and now Swansea have left fans on edge.
After a shaky start at the Liberty Stadium, the Toffees took the lead on the stroke of half time courtesy of a Kyle Naughton own goal.
Swansea deservedly levelled in the second half though, as Jordan Ayew found his seventh goal of the season with a composed finish.
Big Sam seemed in high spirits despite the performance and result, pointing to Swansea’s good home form as reason for optimism.
“It’s a big, battling point today for us,” Allardyce said.
“I’m pleased with the point. I said to the players we know we could have played better, particularly in possession.
“It’s a big point against a Swansea team who are very good at this moment in time at home on their own patch.”
Swansea have indeed won four and drawn one of their last five home matches, but nonetheless fans are furious with the manager’s comments.

It's a great point when you have no ambition to attack and get a point. Absolutely dreadful again, no clue, no ideas and no ambition.
