Everton fans rejoice at Allardyce exit rumours

Multiple reports claim Sam Allardyce will leave Everton within the next 24 hours, and Everton fans are absolutely ecstatic.

Everton fans were delighted on Monday night when a report from the Mirror claimed Sam Allardyce would leave the club this week, and now the Times and Sky Sports have both backed the claims.

According to both David Maddock of the Mirror and Paul Joyce of the Times, the Toffees first choice to replace the former England boss is Marco Silva.

Silva was sacked by Watford earlier this season, and is one of a number of names that has been linked to the Goodison job in recent weeks, with Shakhtar Donetsk manager Paulo Fonseca also heavily linked.

Allardyce’s position has become untenable in the second half of the season, as the relationship between fans and manager has grown more and more toxic.

The results have improved for the Toffees, but the performances definitely haven’t, and fans are fed up of uninspiring, defensive displays.

The report from Sky Sports suggests Big Sam could even leave within the next 24 hours, music to the ears of the Goodison faithful.
