Sam Allardyce looks increasingly likely to be the next manager of Everton after talks with the former England manager were re-opened by the Toffees.
Allardyce withdrew from the race earlier this month as he felt that the Toffees’ reported offer of a contract until the end of the season was not respectful.
But now it seems that Allardyce has once again been in talks with Everton, who have lost five of their seven games under caretaker manager David Unsworth.
On Sunday they reached a new low of losing 4-1 to a Southampton side who usually struggle for goals.
It’s not who we want, it’s who we need to organise this mob and get in their faces. On that’s basis he needs to appoint Allardyce now. #efc

Allardyce is now odds-on favourite to get the job after Everton’s public pursuit of Watford manager Marco Silva failed.
He is expected to appoint Craig Shakespeare as his assistant.
