Newcastle United fans react on Twitter to what Everton boss Sam Allardyce said today.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce burnt his bridges with Newcastle United a long time ago, but fans of the St James's Park club will probably find another reason to dislike him after his latest comments.

The 63-year-old endured a turbulent six-month stint in charge of the Magpies during the 2007-08 season, before being fired by owner Mike Ashley.

Allardyce has bounced back to have reasonable success with a number of different clubs, though he is under pressure at Everton for the moment.

The former England manager has often compared the Toffees to a number of his old clubs - including Newcastle and West Ham - and his latest comments are unlikely to go down well with supporters at either club.

He said: "Every club’s fans have a lot of passion and the history of Everton is far greater than Newcastle and West Ham.

"But every fans has great demands and when there are big crowds the demand is bigger. That’s what it’s all about."

And it's safe to say that Newcastle fans haven't reacted well to what their former manager said.

Historically, Newcastle have won five less top-flight titles than their Merseyside counterparts, but one more FA Cup.

Everton - who also won the UEFA Cup Winners Cup in 1985 - have nine league titles and five FA Cup crowns under their belt, while United have four titles and six FA Cups, but do the Goodison Park side boast a "far greater" history? Not really.
