Everton fans have taken to Twitter to vent their anger after Sam Allardyce was installed as the bookmakers’ odds-on favourite to fill the Goodison Park vacancy.

SkyBet now have the former England manager priced at 4/7 to take the reins at Goodison Park as Martin O’Neill drifted down to joint second favourite at 6/1.

Watford’s Marco Silva (6/1) remains in the running but it’s still anyone’s guess as to who Farhad Moshiri and Bill Kenwright will hire after over a month of indecision from the two Toffees supremos.

However Everton fans seem to believe that Allardyce, 63, is now a sure bet to become the next manager – and that is simply something that they universally do not want to see happen.

One angry fan claimed his appointment would be the “pinnacle of mediocrity”.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Allardyce is known for his direct style of football and ability to drag teams away from the Premier League’s relegation zone – but fans of Everton clearly see them as being above that kind of ideology.

The Merseyside club’s hunt for a new manager has taken many twists and turns with the hierarchy seemingly divided about who they wanted to replace Ronald Koeman, who was sacked over a month ago.

David Unsworth has been less than convincing in caretaker charge, winning just one of his seven games at the helm and conceding nine in his last two.

In other Everton news, this manager wanted by the Toffees has dropped a major hint about his future.
