Most Everton fans would probably take the option to restart the season if they were given the choice.
Under Ronald Koeman, the club were lingering around the relegation zone before he was sacked.
Sam Allardyce has since taken charge, and his arrival was met with a mixture of responses.
A large number of supporters were not hugely enthused by the straight-talking coach, but he did manage to guide the club to a six-game unbeaten run in the Premier League when he took over at the end of December.
At the moment, though, despite the recent arrival of new striker Cenk Tosun, some anxiety has returned due to the team’s current form.
Everton have lost their last three top-flight fixtures, conceding eight goals and scoring just the once in that time.
On Saturday, they were beaten 4-0 by Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, and after the match, Allardyce openly criticised his players.
"I'm hugely disappointed with the professionalism of my players today. That's really out of order." ?

Some fans praised Allardyce’s honesty, while others have questioned whether he is the right man to take Everton forward.
I’ve never been a fan of Sam Allardyce but I admire his honesty, hopefully he’ll turn it around. #EFC

Big Sam's current catchphrase: 'before I got here'. How long you going to peddle that one out for, Sam? Time to take some responsibility ?#EFC

Allardyce slowly proving that he is a dinosaur of a manager! Clueless tactics and clueless substitutions! I don’t think a single player knew what they were supposed to be doing there! Awful appointment that should never have been made! #EFC

The pressure is on Sam Allardyce now after that poor performance. We need a new team besically. #EFC

I hope Mr Moshiri is looking for a new manager for the new season. Allardyce not as bad as I thought he'd be- he's worse! #EFC
