Sam Allardyce may think that he deserved to keep the Everton job, but the board and the fans felt a different way, and news emerged early this week that the Everton boss would be sacked come today.
That came to pass, and the club are looking at getting a new manager in as soon as possible and trying to avoid the issues they faced last season, with the summer spending a flop and the structure of the club in a total mess.
It was a band aid hire to land Allardyce and while he kept them in the league and the club finished 8th in the top flight, the football was dire and the fans knew a change was needed – and it seems the board agree, with Marco Silva once again the hot favourite to take over.

Now, David Moyes has become the latest manager to leave and it seems that his departure may be a bit more consensual, with Moyes reportedly thinking he could manage a top eight side in the Premier League, though quite who that is remains to be seen.
There has obviously also been huge issues within the West Ham camp and with the board and fans this season, and a a change may well have been the best thing for everyone involved.
