Everton are more ambitious than having Sam Allardyce as their manager. Big Sam is good if you are in a struggle near the bottom of the league but surely Moshri and co want to be challenging higher up. Rumours of Silva getting the job - I don't know if he'll be any good but unless you are getting one of the top managers in the world then nothing is really guaranteed. Most managerial appointments are a gamble.Sam Allardyce is set to leave Everton in the next 24 hours – with former Watford manager Marco Silva the preferred choice to replace him, Sky Sports News understands.
Sky Sports News understands Allardyce is due to meet Everton's majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri on Wednesday and will be told his six-month reign has come to an end.
Allardyce will be paid the vast majority of the final 12 months of his contract, estimated to be around £6m.
