Sam Allardyce emerged as the leading contender for the Everton manager’s job on Monday after the club’s pursuit of Watford’s Marco Silva appeared to have broken down.
The former England coach earlier dropped out of the selection process, claiming he didn’t feel wanted at Goodison Park.
But, following successive heavy defeats to Atalanta and Southampton, he’s back in the frame.
These were the best jokes after Sam Allardyce was linked to the vacant managerial position at Everton for the second time:
Sam Allardyce eats his Sunday dinners sitting on the toilet and is exactly the type of manager Everton need right now.

“Glad we haven’t got Big Sam Allardyce because his teams play rubbish football”
Says the Everton fan whose team has conceded 2+ goals for 9 games in a row.
Average the last 9 games out over 38 matches & Everton would concede 101 goals.
ONE HUNDRED AND ONE.
