Allardyce Throws Players Under The Bus As Fans Boo Everton Off

Grabbing a very, very late goal at home to Southampton this afternoon, Everton and Sam Allardyce took a point where Mark Hughes and the Saints could really have done with all three.

In a largely dour, disappointing tie, the introduction of Nathan Redmond at half-time gave Southampton the impetus to go a goal ahead.

However, a minute over the four allotted minutes of injury time added by the referee, Tom Davies' deflected shot gave the Toffees a point from nothing.


It didn't really appear to satisfying an Everton fan-base that had booed their own side off the pitch at half-time. Speaking to BT after the match, however, Allardyce was keen to redirect the attention onto his own players:

The lads that stepped in, unfortunately today didn't step up to the mark.

So, the loss of Wayne Rooney, the loss of Theo Walcott, the loss of Gylfi Sigurðsson ... that's a lot out of our team [and] the lads that stepped in, hard as they tried, didn't match up to what they were achieving before them.

Conceding that his side had not "entertained" the fans as he would have liked to, Allardyce believes "change" is essential if Everton are to improve.


Whether that is in the backroom team, or on the pitch, the former England manager isn't yet sure.
