Everton fans have been discussing the possibility of relegating David Moyes’ West Ham this season, and it seems there is still some love for the Scotsman on Merseyside.
While fans haven’t exactly enjoyed it, the arrival of Sam Allardyce has lifted Everton far away from the relegation battle, but the Toffees could still have a major say in who goes down.
Everton welcome Southampton to Goodison Park next weekend, before travelling to London to face West Ham on the final day of the season.
Of course, both of those teams are well and truly embroiled in the relegation battle, and Southampton’s win against Bournemouth this weekend heaped pressure on the teams above them.
David Moyes’s West Ham currently sit three points clear of the Saints, but with an inferior goal difference.
If Everton were to drop points against Southampton but get a result at West Ham, they could potentially relegate their former manager on the final day of the season.
Moyes took charge of over 500 games for Everton, and fans are hoping not to heap too much misery on their former boss.

No. He may have made a few ill chosen comments after he left to appease his new Manc friends but he still did a lot of good for EFC. Maybe stayed too long, but some good memories

Non, I wouldn't get any pleasure seeing him relegated. Done a decent job under hard circumstances at EFC . West Ham however is a different story. No tears shed for them .

No it wouldn’t be satisfying relegating Moyes but it would be hugely satisfying relegating West Ham, their new stadium, the fans and the owners.

Absolutely not. While he may have left us it was to go to the biggest job in the country. You'd have to be an idiot not to jump at the opportunity, even in hindsight.
He also did a fantastic job for us, initially under very different circumstances. He's a legend. End of.
