Everyone knows how a Sam Allardyce team plays, and it's not always easy on the eye.

The 63-year-old has faced a barrage of criticism from supporters of the Blues for most of his tenure at Goodison Park where he has come under increased pressure to be removed from his position.

The former England manager may have reached the same conclusion as he fights a forlorn battle to win over supporters who have made their displeasure with his appointment increasingly clear over the last few months.

Indeed, Allardyce admitted he wasn't confident over his future following the defeat to West Ham.

Allardyce has a year remaining on his contract.

He said: "I can update you on the fact that all the rumours, gossip, miscalculations and stories the media are writing between me and Wayne are absolute rubbish".

Allardyce appeared on Sky Sports News on Monday evening to discuss the season and he received a very, very warm welcome from host Jim White.

Michael Keane admits Everton's players have to prove they are a better team than the one which finished the Premier League in eighth place.

"They will continue to make it up stories that we've had a row and he has walked out on me".

Current CEO Robert Elstone is expected to leave Everton after 10 years at the commercial helm to take up a similar role heading up Rugby's Super League.

Speculation surrounding Moyes and Allardyce has grown in recent days despite the managers securing survival for West Ham and Everton respectively, after their mid-season arrivals. Am I surprised? I am a little bit, yes.

Sam Allardyce and David Moyes are both set to depart the clubs which they helped retain Premier League status this season.

In this case, it's proven simply impossible to do that.
