Everton manager Sam Allardyce was summoned to London for talks on Thursday with club owner Farhad Moshiri, as revealed by Football Insider.
The Daily Mail claims that the 63-year-old wanted to know what his position was at Goodison Park after a survey sent out to fans asked them to rate the boss, but has received no public support.
He has been left no clearer as to his future on Merseyside which has led to supporters once again calling for the head of Allardyce, who has been hugely unpopular since his appointment.
Fans are fed up with the manager’s so-called negativity as well as the team’s reliance on playing long-balls to the attack and are desperate to see a much adventurous style of play – something they feel they won’t get from the current management.
And when asked on a talkSPORT Twitter feed whether the Blues faithful were “Allardyce in or Allardyce out” the response was a resounding “out.”
Big Sam only arrived at the club in October after Ronald Koeman’s sacking following a shocker of a start to the season and was handed the responsibility of saving the club from relegation.
The 63-year-old has done that and more, guiding Everton to eighth in the Premier League table.
But seemingly that’s not enough for supporters.
Here is what Toffees fans had to say on social media as the pressure mounts on the board to dump the one-time England manager:

Worst and most negative manager in Everton history 100% needs sacking and take walsh kenwright elstone and woods with him. For too long mediocrity has been accepted by these board members. Moshiri needs to clean house and bring in his own people #NSNO

He said before in charge; get the first goal and defend it,that's how to avoid relegation,we were clearly away from that ages ago as there are plenty of teams worse, so now we can only muster 1 shot on target, less chances and mediocre football,we deserve better
