Everton sack Sam Allardyce as manager

Sam Allardyce GETTY Sam Allardyce is set to be sacked at Everton

Sam Allardyce was sacked as Everton manager on Wednesday after his pragmatic style of football proved unpopular with fans despite helping to keep the team in the Premier League.

He believes Allardyce did a very good job in ensuring a top ten finish for Everton after such a horror start to their season.

Indeed, the 63-year-old was busy being heralded by the LMA for reaching 1,000 games in professional management when Everton owner Farhad Moshiri pulled the plug with scant prior warning. Sam was brought in at a challenging time last season to provide us with some stability and we are grateful to him for doing that.

The club has also been interested in Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca, although it's reported he could be in the running to replace David Moyes at West Ham.

Allardyce lasted seven months at Everton after signing an 18-month deal with the northwest club in late November when it was near the relegation zone.

Sony to cease Vita physical game production
Note that the announcement specifically calls out America and Europe as halting production of physical Vita games. During the handheld consoles first week of sales, Sony shifted 500,000 units in Japan and the U.S. combined.

Last month, Allardyce dismissed a survey sent to fans asking them to grade his performance out of 10 as a mistake on the part of the club's marketing director, who he said does not "understand" how football works.

The former England manager said in April that he had spoken with Moshiri and that he would remain at the club next season.

There was widespread speculation in the British press about Allardyce's position at the Merseyside club after a below-par season.

The break has not come cleanly however, with Allardyce reportedly "disgusted" by the Toffees' decision to clear out their backroom staff while he was busy being presented with a special award at Tuesday night's League Manager's Association (LMA) awards dinner in London. "The catalyst for this decision is that unwarranted approach, something which the board believes has seen a significant deterioration in both focus and results to the point where the long-term future of Watford FC has been jeopardised".

Asked about Everton's current situation, Stubbs told talkSPORT host Jim White: "I'm pretty sure they have someone in mind".
