Sam Allardyce Dismissed By Everton After Just Six Months in Charge
Sam Allardyce has been dismissed as Everton manager after six months.
The former England boss was employed by the Goodison Park side on November 30 after Ronald Koeman was sacked following a disappointing start to the season.
Everton, who were 13th in the Premier League when Allardyce arrived, finished the season in eighth position.

Everton scored only 44 goals in 38 outings in the league, the second lowest tally of all teams outside the bottom six, and the fans are not happy about it so the club have decided to make a change.
Watford boss Marco Silva is the main candidate to succeed Allardyce.
A statement from the club reads: “Everton Football Club can confirm that Sam Allardyce has left his role as manager.”
Director Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale said: “On behalf of the Chairman, Board of Directors and [owner] Mr Farhad Moshiri, I’d like to thank Sam for the job he has done at Everton over the last seven months. 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.
“However, we have made the decision that, as part of our longer-term plan, we will be appointing a new manager this summer and will be commencing this process immediately. Again, we’d like to place on record our sincere thanks to Sam for his work with us over the last few months and wish him well for the future.”
