Allardyce makes shock admission about his relationship with Everton fans

  Allardyce makes shock admission about his relationship with Everton fans Everton manager Sam Allardyce believes that he has the support of the majority of the club’s supporters. As reported by the Daily Post, the former England boss was confident about his relationship with the supporters, despite widespread criticism. “It’s an entertainment game, you’re trying to capture hearts and minds, and certainly I think, particularly from a home point of view, we’ve achieved that, not just with the results but the way we’ve played and the way we’ve beaten teams.” Fans have been quick to vent their frustration at the Everton boss with banners and protests at games. Many have criticised the team’s style of play after a frustrating second half of the season. Allardyce remains under contract going into next season but it is yet to be seen whether or not he will be in charge at Goodison Park in August. Paulo Fonseca and Marco Silva have been long-term targets for the Toffees and both are still heavily linked with the position. The former Sunderland boss was appointed to guide the club away from the relegation zone after a poor first half of the season. Everton look set to finish eighth, just outside of a place in the Europa League.

Everton keeping an eye on Toulouse star .
Everton are reportedly keeping an eye on Toulouse centre-back Issa Diop. It’s claimed by L’Equipe, as translated by Sport Witness, that the Toffees have been keeping tabs on the defender in recent months. Diop has emerged as one of Ligue 1’s brightest talents, establishing himself as a key man for Toulouse. His consistency and impressive performances have attracted several clubs ahead of next season and Everton are seemingly keen. The 21-year-old’s form also earned him the role as Toulouse’s captain; an impressive feat for a player of such tender age. Everton will be desperate to bolster their defensive ranks this summer after a season of suspect performances throughout last season. Diop would undoubtedly add additional quality to the defence, so it comes as no surprise to see the Toffees linked with a move. However, they may be forced to fend off competition from elsewhere. It’s stated in the report that Crystal Palace are also attentive to Diop’s situation at Toulouse.
