Sam Allardyce Sacked By Everton After Just Six Months

"They must have been in the pipeline for a considerable time but no-one thought to tell me and my staff".

He is currently the hot favourite to make his return with Everton, while Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca is also in the frame, alongside Louis van Gaal, whereas a certain David Moyes is now free....
