Allardyce was pleased with Everton's rise during his five-month reign and has urged his team to improve next season. Travelling Blues fans unfurled a banner before kick-off, which read: "Our survey says....get out of our club".


Firefighters evacuated the high-rise but as they were taking out the last of the residents, the building collapsed, killing the man.

As many as 160 firefighters in 57 vehicles responded to the massive fire at a building on the Largo do Paisandu street in the center of the city. That blaze was brought under control relatively quickly, São Paulo Fire Brigade Lieutenant André Elias told Globo TV.

Local media outlets reported that the building was formally a headquarters for the federal police but had been abandoned for many years and was frequently occupied by squatters.

Then squatters moved in; an Associated Press investigation past year found about 350 families living there.

Not everybody agreed with the former mayor's tactics, though, and others hoped to see the area converted to affordable housing instead of a robust economic showcase.
