Everton fans fume at Allardyce’s pre-Huddersfield comments

Everton fans can’t quite believe how highly Sam Allardyce rates himself, as the ex-England manager compared himself to Diego Simeone in his Friday press conference.

If there’s one thing that has annoyed Everton fans more than Sam Allardyce’s tactics this season, it’s his attitude.

At a club like Everton, an essential part of the manager’s job is to “get” the club, to connect with the fans, and to understand their frustrations when things go wrong.

Big Sam hasn’t ticked any of these boxes, and fans are in sheer disbelief at his latest comments ahead of Saturday’s trip to Huddersfield.

“What is entertainment? Is Diego Simeone entertainment?” the manager asked.

“He’s the master of the defensive trade. Atletico Madrid have conceded four goals at home all season, but I’m seen as too negative. We’ve achieved some extremely entertaining games.”

Allardyce is referring to the praise being heaped on Simeone after his ten-man Atletico Madrid side grabbed a 1-1 draw at the Emirates on Thursday night, but it doesn’t seem like fans appreciate the sentiment.

“I think we’re more entertaining now than when I arrived here,” Allardyce continued.

Fans were delighted with a report today that claimed owner Farhad Moshiri has refused to publicly back Allardyce, and they’re absolutely crucifying him for his press conference comments.
