Sam Allardyce hits out at journalists amid Everton job criticism

Not happy

Sam Allardyce has hit out at journalists in his Everton press conference today after questions were asked about his future at Goodison Park.

While the former Sunderland boss has now secured safety for a side who were threatened by relegation, fans are still not impressed.

The style of football on show has lead to much criticism from all four corners of the Everton fan base.

They have had their say and almost none want to see Sam Allardyce in charge of the club next season.

Though, Allardyce has hit out at journalists who referred to the Everton fans as ‘doubters’ today, as he claimed that it was only just a minority complaining.

during the Emirates FA Cup Third Round match between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield on January 5, 2018 in Liverpool, England.

Safe to say, that couldn’t be further from the truth but Allardyce was having none of it.

“Have you been looking at Twitter and Facebook?” Sam said in his press conference.

“Your lives are really run by Facebook, Twitter and Instagram far too much.

“You are professional journalists. You shouldn’t listen to speculating unprofessionals which is what you are doing to get your stories.

“So be real and say that there are a few that are complaining and there a few that speculate that my reign at the end of the season will not be here – on many fronts, on radio, on TV, in the papers and social media.

“You create the stir but really for me, that’s only a small minority.

“When Farhad rings me up and says ‘Sam we don’t want you anymore’ then I know I’m not wanted.”

Confidence or naivety?

Allardyce also went on and tried to explain why there shouldn’t be any doubters.

“I personally don’t think I could have done much more with the staff I’ve got in the period of time I’ve been working here with these players who were in an extremely difficult position before I arrived,” he continued.

“For instance, West Bromwich Albion were above us when I arrived. Look where we are now and look where West Brom are.”

Everton to sign PSV’s Marcel Brands

Sam Allardyce isn’t the only change likely this summer.

The club must now make wholesale changes if they are to never see a repeat of this season again.

Now, it’s the director of football position that is being talked about and Everton have found their man.
