Everton fans don’t want Silva to replace Allardyce

Everton fans are delighted about dumping Sam Allardyce, but they’re not quite so happy about his reported replacement.

It’s been a long and painful season for Everton fans, but even the most pessimistic Toffees would admit there is plenty of quality in their squad, and they could make a huge step up next season with a few smart moves this summer.

Sam Allardyce was brought in before Christmas to save the club from a relegation scrap, and the former England manager did exactly that, but at the expense of the performances.

Fans have grown increasingly fed up with Big Sam’s negative tactics and smug demeanour, so it’s perhaps no surprise to see the club are targeting a young, dynamic coach.

Reports this week claim the club are lining up Marco Silva to replace Big Sam, but fans don’t seem too happy about the links.

Silva was sacked by Watford this season after a terrible run of form, but did get the Hornets playing some lovely football at times.

His defensive frailties are certainly cause for concern though, ironically the area Allardyce specialises in.
