Sam Allardyce reckons his Everton side deserved booing for their poor showing against West Brom.

Allardyce: “The fans want to see us win and they want to see footballers that are paid to pass the ball pass the ball to each other. They saw very little of that today.

“I’ve got no problem with the fans booing us because we deserved booing, that’s what happens. We didn’t play very well and the fans show their disapproval, and rightly so, because they pay money to come and watch us.

“Players should listen to that like I do and say, ‘We’ve got to get these fans singing for us like they were doing a few weeks ago’.

“It was difficult to watch today. There were a lot of nerves out there today and that resulted in a lot of misplaced passes and their goal, which came from our goal-kick.

“I’m pleased that in the end we got a point through our substitute making an impact and popping in an equaliser. At least this is a positive result because we didn’t deserve any more than a point, that’s for sure.”
