Everton were heavily beaten by Arsenal last weekend.
Everton fans have been left furious, after Sam Allardyce’s confirmation that everyone at Goodison Park has accepted that they simply weren’t able to compete with Arsenal.
Everton were beaten 5-1 at the Emirates Stadium, in what was a humiliating defeat for the Toffees.
Allardyce’s side simply were not at the races, as they slipped to a heavy defeat in north London.
And Allardyce’s comments about the match have not gone down well.
He said to the Liverpool Echo: “The lads have accepted, we've all accepted, we weren't able to compete with Arsenal.”
Everton fans feel that the quotes are too defeatist, and they have simply served to put Allardyce under more pressure.
Watford shouldn't have been able to compete with Chelsea but look what happens when you set up positivity and put in some effort— Chris Mackey (@ChrisMefc) February 8, 2018
I’ve accepted he shouldn’t be anywhere near the club— Charlie (@efccharlie1878) February 8, 2018
This is another embarrassing statement from big sham, I've come to the conclusion he wants to get us safe then get the sack and have his contract paid up, some of the things he's said to the press lately are shocking— robert conroy (@robertconroy2) February 8, 2018
Sam Allardyce should not have been appointed Everton manager— Grab68 (@Grab68) February 8, 2018
Sam Allardyce should not be Everton manager.
Sam Allardyce should be removed from the position as Everton manager at the earliest possible opportunity.
In the premier league, you should be able to compete with all teams.— Dom (@Dom_EFC) February 8, 2018
Of course we were able to compete. We just chose not to.— Dominic Kearney (@KearneyDominic) February 8, 2018
Makes me wretch with his defeatist attitude. Stinks la.— Gavin Melling (@GPMelling) February 8, 2018
Please leave our club. Shameful statement— stuart (@s_ditchfield) February 8, 2018
Allardyce actually made a bright start at Everton, but a run of one win in nine games has led to criticism rising.
Toffees fans have now suggested that Allardyce’s time at Goodison Park is up, and they should plan ahead for next season.
Everton are currently in 10th place in the Premier League table, with their next match coming against Crystal Palace.
