On borrowed time
Sam Allardyce’s Everton career is set to come to a swift end with the Toffees having already identified their next manager ahead of a summer overhaul.
The club have went through an extremely torrid time this season having come into the campaign with such optimism.
A second season under Ronald Koeman, with an investment of well over £100million, the most ever spent by the club in a window by a long way.
Several record signings came in but the Dutch bosses season only last a couple of months before he was sacked.
That lead Everton into a relegation battle for most of the season, as Sam Allardyce was eventually brought in to steady the ship.
While he has achieved that by reaching 40 points with seven games to go, many believe he’s not the man to take the club forward.
Despite a very poor season, this is a club with aspirations of breaking into the top six and eventually the top four.
Sam Allardyce has shown in performances against the big teams this season that it would be virtually impossible to do that with him at the helm.
So, Everton are turning to a younger, more dynamic manager for their next boss and they look to have found their man.
If allardyce stays next season I can’t even imagine how bad its going to be. There will be no hope going into next season, the atmosphere will be dead. Everyone will turn on the players and manager when we go behind and the football will be terrible, do the right thing @Everton

The next Jose Mourinho
The Toffees will turn to Shakhtar Donetsk manager Paulo Fonseca to become their next boss according to the Mirror.
The Portuguese boss has impressed with the Ukranian side, who have beaten Man City this side and progressed further in the Champions League than they were ever expected to.
Not only that, the side look certain to win the Ukranian Premier League with a six-point lead at the top of the table.
Arsenal, Chelsea and even Manchester United have all been touted with interest in Fonseca but Everton could steal a march on them all this summer.
The side tried to bring Fonseca in after sacking Koeman, but Shakhtar would not allow him to leave during the middle of the season.
Now, with his contract set to run out in June, there will be no one standing in his way of a Premier League move.
Hope Everton don’t get Paulo Fonseca from Shakhtar. Very good coach.
