There's some big names being linked, Ancelotti would be a huge and unlikely coup especially with the recent talk of him replacing Klopp at Liverpool. Tuchel would be another very interesting appointment, the two ex-Dortmund bosses at the two Merseyside clubs. I think it's much more likely though that Unsworth will keep it until the end of the season to see what he can do - either that or they'll go for Howe or Dyche. Apparently the biggest problem was the lack of "connection" to the fans - so Unsworth or Howe seem the most likely choices, with Dyche surely a better fit for Leicester.

 

Giggsy wants both jobs - I miss him in football but I feel like he'd have a better chance of getting hired if he stopped publicly talking about every single opportunity that comes up.

Interesting thoughts Bazza, however WIR that could be a possibility.

Koeman is a terrific manager. Everton are making a mistake.

Are you on drugs?

 

The "Bitters" (the common name for Everton fans) would be made up for Moyes to bring back the good old days to Castle Greyskulls Goodison (The Theatre of Hatred). Days when they actually managed to compete with Liverpool & get the odd result every 5 years or so. But The Ginger Whinger was always Fergusons number 2 during their "glory days" when favours from his boss would always be forthcoming so long as the Blueshite rolled over at Old Trafford & then kicked lumps out of anyone competing against United. Success was always measured on how well Liverpool were doing & for 10 years Moyes along with Kenwright, convinced the Bitters that they couldn't compete & were inferior to the majority of Premier League teams. To bring him back would be a backward step & Moyes has categorically proven he is a shite manager on his own.

 

Unsworth may well be the answer to their current predicament but for the long term they need to move forward & get a decent young coach who can drag them (the club & the fans) into the 21st century & to stop living in our shadow. Ancellotti is a busted flush & is playing on his previous achievements & is only coming to the Premier League for one more last big pay day. You would have to be really stupid to employ him so I expect that West Ham will be his next stop.

 

I hope the Blueshite give an up & coming young coach the chance to make his name, it would be cheaper & what do they have to lose?

I'm not sure what you disagree with, I never mentioned Moyes :lol

 

Everton's next manager isn't really about United and Liverpool.

Seems to be on here, but on the matter at hand, Unsworth is a great servant to the club, but not yet manager material at this level. They require someone like a Tuchel or as mentioned an Ancelotti, however the last of those two will not go to a side currently embroiled within a trap-door battle.

Tuchel seems happy where he is for now, so Moyes maybe the right fit AGAIN, different era granted and money at his disposal, in which wasnt present within his last stint. Also a youth academy throbbing with British Isles talent at his disposal in which he could utilise to a very desirable level.

As far as Koeman goes, this sadly is a turbulent partof his managerial CV, Everton after the Summer transfer window were pitted 7th in the highest gross spenders in the world at £158.2 million, above Juventus, Bayern and Monaco, scary stuff and sadly what Koeman's previous achievements will lie beneath this blanket of erratic spending.

As soon as you can come to terms with that, the more content your life will be. 

 

But in the spirit of goodwill to the other clubs:  Are Arsenal fielding a team this year?  :p

I thought Koeman deserved a bit more time but he, and his recruiting team, have suffered from a complete inability to replace Lukaku despite knowing for months that he was likely to be leaving. There's plenty for the new manager to work with, but I'd suggest a few of the signings (Klaasen) will need to move on to make space for the other creative midifielders on the pitch and the wage bill off it. 

 

Everton still a big club for a certain group of managers to aspire to.

Latest news is that the millionaire new owner has no money re Paradise Papers - He bought Everton with a loan from Arsenal? Now Kenwiright is saying he wants Diego Simeonie who is keen but wants to know where Everton are.

Realistically it has to be either Unsworth or Allardyce until the end of the season.

So after more than 5 weeks of trying to choose they've settled for Allerdyce.

 

I'm sure he'll settle the ship but this has situation been handled terribly by Everton. They clearly had no plan in place when they sacked Koeman and Allerdyce doesn't exactly match the ambitions of what they've spent this summer - or the type of player Koeman brought in. Wonder how Everton fans feel about it?

Everton sponsors make second social media gaffe by describing club as a 'hopeless place'

 

You have to admire their honesty.
