Despite a positive start to his time in charge at the club, recent poor results have seen Sam Allardyce’s popularity among Everton fans disappear somewhat.
Having picked up just one point from their four Premier League games so far in 2018, it seems that the Blue half of Merseyside are in for a real end-of-season slog.
The arrivals of Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun have certainly strengthened the ranks at Everton but Allardyce has now conceded that the squad is “too big” and departures are likely.
One of these departures, according to latest reports is Ademola Lookman, who the club are happy to send out on loan for the remainder of the season.
The 21-year-old, who is valued at £6.3million by Transfermarkt, has impressed in cameo appearances this season but now looks set to move elsewhere until the summer.
Upon hearing the news of a potential loan-deal for Lookman, Everton fans took to Twitter, and it’s safe to say they were not impressed…
Who makes the decisions at this club. This is insane.

How this lad doesn’t get a game I have no clue!!

This sums us up!!! Kid deserves his chance to be able to prove he can be a starter week in week out. Offers something different to what we have right now.

Noooooooooooo this lad should be starting instead of Bolasie. He turned the derby cup game around when he came on and at least his trickery actually works and let's him pass players. All Bolasie seems to do is a few step overs to maybe win a corner. AL should be starting!!!!!!!!!

It's ridiculous that our only player that has pace, talent, not afraid to take defenders on, isn't even making the bench, that being the case, he's better going out on loan instead of sitting in the stands, or be a non-used sub! The way Sam plays, AL is too good, roll on summer!

Madness. Clubs lots the plot. He’s young and hungry. Gives it his all.
