You can always rely on Sam Allardyce for an entertaining press conference and he didn’t disappoint today.

In what can only be seen as top trolling from the Everton manager, he refused to take any criticism on the chin, claimed the only doubters were a small minority on social media, and said that when he arrived at the club they were below West Brom.

The inference is that he thinks he’s doing a great job, the fans are behind him, and without him they could be facing relegation.

If he’s not trolling then he’s living in a different world.

His comments were picked up by the Liverpool Echo who posted them on its official Twitter page on Friday afternoon.

As you can imagine, his latest comments have gone down a treat on Twitter, although Allardyce would use that as more evidence of the echo chamber.
