Has Rodney Marsh just aimed a dig at Everton fans over Sam Allardyce?

Everton fans are demanding change this summer and it seems their attitude and ideals have invited ridicule from some quarters.

Everton have endured a topsy turvy season with Ronald Koeman axed and eventually replaced by the hugely unpopular Sam Allardyce.

The former England boss has done the job of lifting the Toffees out of the relegation zone and into what is likely to be the highest position they can finish, eighth.

But supporters are already fed up with the style of football on display at Goodison Park and Allardyce is under pressure to keep his job beyond the summer, particularly after the now infamous survey faux pas.

Allardyce hit out at fans who did not stick around for the team's end of season lap of honour after the 1-1 draw with Southampton last time out and the club's board for a lack of support, as reported by the likes of The Liverpool Echo.

Many rivals fans and pundits feel Everton supporters are ungrateful for what Allardyce has done in turning a dysfunctional team around, questioning whether they could realistically hope to challenge the Premier League elite.

Many also feel their ideals over style of play are a touch rich pointing out that their most successful side for decades under David Moyes was pragmatic and obdurate much of the time.

Toffees fans have left Allardyce in no doubt over their feelings towards him with banners at boos in the stands during games.

And pundit Rodney Marsh appears to have aimed a dig at the Goodison Park faithful with a sarcastic message on Twitter.

"Nice to see Everton supporters haven't lost their sense of humour," Marsh said on Twitter. 

Whatever your view on the demands and ideals of Everton fans, they pay their money and are entitled to a bit of blue sky thinking, particularly having spent £150 million in the summer.

That did paper over the fact they lost key duo Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley and whoever is the manager this summer they must go even bigger if they are to have any hope of closing the gap on the top six.
