With all the furore surrounding Sam Allardyce’s tenure as Everton manager in the last few days, it now appears the club’s Board will convene this week to decide whether he will be returning for the second year of his two-year deal.
No doubt somewhat inspired by Arsenal who announced this weekend that their vastly experienced Arsene Wenger would not be coming back next season, it looks like Farhad Moshiri might be paying attention to what the club he was once an investor in are doing.
The Mail are reporting the news about the Everton Board, especially after the stir in the media caused last week by the supporters survey sent out by the club that asked for fan input on how the club leadership, manager, and players are doing.
Despite mounting protests from the fans over continuously uninspired performances, Allardyce has maintained that the complaining voices have been in the minority despite some vocal evidence to the contrary even at away games.
Meanwhile, chatter continues to mount that Paulo Fonseca of Shakhtar Donetsk has been lined up to replace Allardyce. To add to the uncertainty is talk that PSV Eindhoven sporting director Marcel Brands is close to joining the Blues as Director of Football, with no word if the incumbent Steve Walsh will continue in the role, move back to scouting or leave the club.
