Allardyce tears into Everton fan survey

Tim Cahill of Everton scores the fourth goal during the Barclays Premier League match between Everton and Fulham at Goodison Park

Everton boss Sam Allardyce says a survey sent to fans asking them to rate his performance on a scale of zero to 10 was "a marketing slip-up".

The fans were asked just how much they agreed with the statement: "I have a high level of trust in the current manager and coaching staff at Everton e.g.in making the right decisions to get the best out of the team".

Speaking at his press conference on Thursday afternoon, Allardyce still believes that when Mike Ashley sacked him it was "unjust".

"The survey passed out by the director of marketing was a slip-up", he said. It has allowed (the press) to write some handsome headlines.

Allardyce, who has faced criticism from supporters for an uninspiring run of results, blamed the survey on the director of marketing's lack of football knowledge and revealed he has received an apology from chairman Bill Kenwright. Our head of marketing clearly doesn't have a great understanding of football!

"He must have thought it was the right thing to do but clearly everyone else hasn't and even the chairman I spoke to (on Wednesday night)". That's it. Let's move on.

Indiana Pacers vs Cleveland Cavaliers: 3 things we learned from Game 2
With the series shifting to Indianapolis , the duo of Oladipo and Darren Collison will look to be more opportunistic on offense. After Game 2, TNT's Ernie Johnson asked the Inside the National Basketball Association crew if the series would go seven games.

Allardyce was then asked what he would rate him himself out of 10 and replied: "P-- off, 11!" before laughter ensued in the media room at Finch Farm.

Everton now lie 9th in the table after a disappointing season, and there has been speculation that Allardyce may exit the club at the end of the season, with fans unhappy about the style of football he has brought to the club.

"The only reason I am at Everton is because the team wasn't good enough before I got here - that was the opinion of the board".

"It hasn't made a difference for me concerning my position", said Allardyce.

"(I will still be here) Unless someone rings me up at the highest level and says "Sam you are not needed anymore"...if so I would be extremely disappointed.

"But I would be extremely disappointed if that was the case".
