Everton manager Sam Allardyce hinted that he is set to stay next season in his pre-match press conference for the Premier League trip to Huddersfield Town this weekend, and Toffees fans have been quick to have their say on the news.
The 63-year-old was questioned about what was discussed during talks with owner Farhad Moshiri in London on Thursday, and he replied by saying they were “discussing plans for next season” and that he has “some clarity moving forward now”.
The former England boss continues to be hugely unpopular among the Goodison Park faithful, who continue to slate him on Twitter, as they aren’t enjoying their team’s performances despite the fact they currently lie in eighth position in the standings.
Everton supporters were quick to have their say on Allardyce’s latest comments via social media, and while one said “he must go”, another said “we get what we deserve”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
First chance for protest is 24 hours away. Suggest we don’t waste it

He isn’t going to tell them he won’t be Manager next season he probably needs to keep his mouth shut or risk losing some of his pay off

We cannot let this guy with a 12 month contract make decisions for the next few years of the club, it makes no sense

No he's not. 3 games and he's gone, stop panicking

If he stays I give in

How could they possibly think he has earned another season in charge? He got worse as this season went on, still has no idea how to use the players we have, & is so defensive it hurts even against lesser teams. Not to mention the crap he says in his press conferences. He must go

HUGE missed opportunity with the fans Monday. I’ve said it before the fans let this happen. There should’ve been a ruckus and protest but instead there was silence and acceptance. Moshiri took that as the fans are good with Sam. We get what we deserve.
