Sam Allardyce has lashed out to Everton fans once again. The Toffees’ manager accused the fans of ungratefulness after a 1-1 draw against Southampton was greeted with resounding boos. Everton is now on a five match unbeaten run and have a steady mid-table position.
“You get boos wherever you go when you don’t play well. I thought we were terrible,” he told reporters after the game. “But you’ve got to forgive these boys. The fans should forgive them a little bit for what they’ve done and how hard they’ve worked to get this club out of trouble.”
“But there seems to be no credit for their achievement. And I’m not talking about me, I’m talking about them”, Big Sam continued. “The effort they’ve put in, the drive, the willingness to take Everton to the top eight. It appears that’s no credit to these players. It’s rather a shame for the effort they’ve put in.”
