Marco Silva must be delighted he turned down West Bromwich Albion now

Sam Allardyce hopes Wayne Rooney will stay at Everton

Sam Allardyce hopes Wayne Rooney will stay at Everton

It's said that Marco Silva, the former Watford manager who was initially favourite to replace Ronald Koeman when he was sacked in October, is the preferred candidate.

Allardyce has one year left on his contract at Everton and has made it clear that he is keen to remain in charge, yet support unrest and a glaring back of backing from the club's hierarchy have left his position in doubt for some weeks.

Allardyce will be paid the vast majority of the final 12 months of his contract, estimated to be around £6m.

The Toffees offered as much as £12m in compensation for Silva, only for Watford to rebuff their approach.

Pennington took her corner's advice and came out in the fifth round looking to attack but Nunes superiority continued. But we are going to leave this cage and have a beer and celebrate our friendship.

However, it looks like there will be an update this week, with Allardyce adding on Sky Sports' Season Review - Managers Special: "It's moved on with his representative and the board from here, which I believe may be Wednesday".

Everton suffered a 3-1 loss to West Ham United in Rooney's absence on the final day of the Premier League season, leaving them eighth in the table.

Last month, Allardyce dismissed a survey sent to fans asking them to grade his performance out of 10 as a mistake on the part of the club's marketing director, who he said does not "understand" how football works.

"They will continue to make it up stories that we've had a row and he has walked out on me". In the January window, Farhad [Moshiri] backed us up with two very important signings [Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun].

The decision to convene Friday's meeting was taken late Thursday evening by the Chief Justice Misra. It also questioned his seniority for elevation as a judge of the Supreme Court.

Fans have already grown tired of the lack of direction of the new regime following years of stability if not financial muscle, and Moshiri knows he can make no more mistakes with his next appointment.

"The season is finished and I am going to have a meeting with Farhad [Moshiri, the club's leading shareholder] this week and then I will go on my holidays".
