It may finally be happening. Our long national nightmare could be coming to an end.

According to ESPN UK and Pete O’Rourke, Sam Allardyce and Farhad Moshiri are expected to agree to a parting of ways during their meeting later this week.

Sam Allardyce is expected to leave his role as Everton manager later this week, sources have told ESPN FC.

Allardyce’s future at Everton has been the subject of conjecture for several weeks now with the club linked with a number of possible replacements for the former England boss.

The 63-year-old is due to meet Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri for talks this week, and sources said both parties are expected to agree to a parting of ways.

In a season that has felt like it lasted a thousand years, the news would not be a moment too soon for Everton supporters. A recent online poll of Everton fans showed that a whopping 88% did not want Allardyce and his caveman-ball back at Goodison Park next season, and if this report is to be believed, we’re well on our way to getting a wish granted.

Paulo Fonseca. Marco Silva. Mikel Arteta. Unai Emery. All have been mentioned as successors, and all are worthy candidates who are unlikely to sully the name of Everton in the ways that Sam Allardyce has.

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, boss.
