The future of Sam Allardyce at Goodison Park looks to have edged a step closer to its end after a reported revelation in The Sun of players discussing the possibility of Marco Silva taking over from the former England manager.
It all seems to be unravelling at a pace now for Big Sam.
With Wayne Rooney agreeing “a deal in principle” to head to the MLS side DC United, fans opinion at an all-time low, and surveys from the board asking supporters to rate the boss, the wave of negativity surrounding the boss is building to a crescendo.
And with this latest incident, where players are discussing the possibility of the former Watford boss in the hot seat, it would seem that the writing is on the wall and the £6million that Farhad Moshiri would have to pay in order to end the club’s relationship with Big Sam is on the verge of being transferred into the Dudley native’s bank account.
Despite having brought the club back from doldrums, to eighth in the division, supporters want more and that starts with the manager’s head.
The Toffees have one remaining fixture to play in the Premier League this season, against West Ham on Sunday, and we fully expect that once the curtain is drawn on the 2017/18 campaign, Moshiri and Everton fans can bid farewell to the much-maligned manager.
