Ex-NUFC boss Sam Allardyce is at it again, with the Everton manager stating that the Toffees history is ‘far greater’ than Newcastle’s – an antagonising comment that hasn’t went down well on Tyneside.
Allardyce has enjoyed comparing current club Everton to former clubs Newcastle and West Ham, and he’s done it again today – however his petty comments here won’t have done much to impress fans on Merseyside.
They’ve been awful at both ends of the pitch under Big Sam recently and his arrogance in interviews doesn’t help his case either.
Here’s what he’s had to say today, comparing Newcastle to Everton unfavourably once again:
“Every club’s fans have a lot of passion and the history of Everton is far greater than Newcastle and West Ham, but every fans has great demands and when there are big crowds the demand is bigger. That’s what it’s all about,”
“For me, Everton is completely different from Newcastle and West Ham. It was just a comparison. It wasn’t anything other than that. If you don’t play as well as they [supporters] expect you to play, they show their disapproval.
“The ambition at Everton is different to Newcastle and different to West Ham but if you don’t play as well as they expect you to play and don’t entertain they show their disapproval and that’s what you have to deal with as a manager.”
These comments come just a week on from his interesting remarks about the ‘pressure’ at Everton being same as it was at St James’ Park – except he proceeded to remind us that the Blues have won ‘a lot more in past years’ than Newcastle.
He’s a master at keeps clubs up, but that’s where it ends for Sam. I look forward to his sacking in the summer – Everton deserve better.
