The Everton supporters are yet to warm to Sam Allardyce - and it doesn't look like they ever will.

Fans at Goodison Park were treated to a remarkably dull 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Monday night, with Theo Walcott scoring the winner early in the second-half.

The Toffees climbed up to eighth in the Premier League table - but managed only one shot on target in 90 minutes of action.

Allardyce's negative style of football has not gone down well with the Everton fans since he took charge in November 2017.

The board recently sent out a survey, asking fans to rate Allardyce's ability to “get the best out of the team” on a scale of zero to 10.

He has a contract at Everton until 2019.

In his post-match interview on Monday night, Allardyce was asked if he could deliver results while pleasing Everton fans with his style of football.

Allardyce's unpopular answer

“What was wrong with our style today?" replied the former England manager on Sky Sports. "We've completely dominated the game and out-passed the opposition.

“We found them very difficult to break down because of the very negative tactic of dropping everyone back so you have to be patient and we got the winner so you couldn't knock our football."

Allardyce continued: “You can knock some of our passing that goes astray but, in all fairness, you can't really blame me for that, can you? I don't pass the ball out there, the lads do.”

If he's trying to get the Everton fans onside, he's doing a terrible job of it.

Since taking the reins, Allardyce has regularly angered the Goodison Park faithful with his comments to the press.

The Everton fans quite clearly want him gone in the summer.

Allardyce has three Premier League games remaining to convince the board he is the man to take the club forward.

He wasn't happy about the survey, which asked fans to rate his ability as manager.

“The survey? The director of marketing and communications has clearly slipped up,” said Allardyce. “From my point of view it was a big mistake.

“I think it has allowed you to write some beautiful headlines. Our director of marketing does not have a great understanding of how football works because he is into marketing. He must have thought it was the right thing but everyone else hasn’t – even the chairman.

"I'm planning for the future, until someone tells me otherwise," added the 63-year-old manager. 

"If that was to happen I'd be more than extremely disappointed."
