Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler says Everton were ‘out of order’ to sack Sam Allardyce – weighing in on the debate ahead of the Merseyside derby at Anfield.
According to The Express, Fowler said: “If they don’t finish any higher than eighth – as they did last season under Sam Allardyce – is that success?
“I felt the way Big Sam was pilloried was out of order. It was obvious that the majority of fans didn’t want him at Goodison Park in the first place. The new manager couldn’t lose.
“Everyone is entitled to their opinion about how football is played, but I felt Sam didn’t do a bad job. Everton right now are easier on the eye – but it’s where they finish in the Premier League in May which is the determining factor of his reign.”
Silva has surely improved Everton since Allardyce left, so we’re not sure what Fowler means. They were even more terrible to watch than usual last season.
They will certainly be much more of a threat this afternoon – although we still think the Reds will win the game.
