I wonder how much of these rumours about Allardyce, Dyche, Moyes and co, are actually red herrings allowed to sneak out by the board to take the scent off the actual manager/ s they are making contact with. I just cannot believe that Morishi is prepared to outlay so much money on players and a new stadium, just to employ managers who at best will keep us mid table with the odd venture into europe every decade, or am I deluded in my thoughts.

1.) 02 Nov 2017 08:11:45
everyone but santa is been linked to the job, see hiddink is the latest suspect.

2.) 02 Nov 2017 08:39:55
We don't do red herrings. At this rate we will be getting linked to Iain Dowie.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 11:04:26
Go the whole high and get Alan Curbishley, Steve McLaren or Bob Bradley.

4.) 02 Nov 2017 16:35:14
has anyone mentioned harry yet.

5.) 02 Nov 2017 20:06:21
Everyone moaning about allardyce we desparately need him because we leak 3 goals a game and are going down ATM. He guarantees survival and then we can build from there by getting rid of the expensive rubbish Walsh and Koeman decided to bring in and add some real quality alongside the quality kids we have coming through.

6.) 02 Nov 2017 20:36:19
I agree, desperate times need desperate measures. The way we've lost the confidence in the team is alarming. Our best player tonight was a 17 year old and embarrassed schneiderlen. I think this job is too big for Dyche and wouldn't be confident in a foreign big name, I wouldn't be surprised if big Sam came tomorrow.

7.) 02 Nov 2017 21:52:44
As things stand even Ian Dowie wouldn’t take the job.

8.) 03 Nov 2017 08:13:45
a manager will not solve efc's problems. doesn't matter who they bring in he will soon realise that the squad needs replacing. we have 7 or 8 young and good players, beyond that there is nothing at the club. how officials at our club haven't seen the obvious is beyond me, without singling out any particular players it has been disappointing since unsy took over. when he did vlasic started to look like he was settling in at the club under what has to be said difficult circumstances first thing he does is drop him. and plays more or less the same players out of positions, as koeman did. they say a definition of madness is to keep doing the same thing and expect things to work out differently. i don't know what i expected from unsy, tbh. i thought he would see that rooney can't play up front and maybe drop morgan or gana and play rooney there or sig use vlasic and cal, niasse as forwards which they are but, so far rooney now sig up front shows he doesn't understand the problems we have. all season our whole forward line has dropped into midfield so we have been pressured more and more as games have gone on and managers tactics and formations are the problem. not since gordon lee have i seen an everton side this lacking in everyway possible. we have to be careful what we do next bring in the wrong guy and nothing will change several of our first team players cannot and must not be allowed to be on the same pitch at the same time. rooney mid no sig sig mid no rooney. gana no morgan, morgan no gana, we are presenting ourselves as a team to be attacked cause eventually all these players drop way to deep into the same positions and no longer look like they can kick a ball, falling over themselves. its a shame that unsy didn't see this right off the bat and start playing 4 1 3 2 with cal kev and vlasic up front, rooney or sig with benni and macca or gana or morgan as for the defence your guess is as good as mine. i think its clear unsy is not the man for the job which is a shame but he isn't coping with the big players at the club cause he is doing exactly what koeman did. there is a small change in personnel, but it's only a tweek on what koeman was doing when every fan can see we need a more radical solution. its not rocket science if someone is doing they're job poorly or having a difficult time they need dropping, its a football club. i am having a hard time believing we don't have any good defenders in our under 23 side that won prem 2 last year, surely a player who wins things and is hungry for a chance has to be better than what we put out. like i say shame unsy never got the point maybe we could be the first club of a reality tv show . the "ramsey esque" premier club nightmare where alex ferguson can go round clubs and watch games and they say "yeh you have problems. mainly your just sh*t. all joking aside things aren't as dire as they appear we need a manager who doesn't care what the under 23's are doing and wants to take them players from there and use them in the first team squad and one who watches games and can see what we all see and hopefully brings in the right players cause cal vlsaic and kev will be better off when we can defend and push out a bit.

Easyjet regret to announce that flight EZY7103 to Madrid will be delayed by 30 minutes. This is due to Mr Farhad Morishi having to be checked in via a back door due to the huge gathering of press and media outside the terminal. Wonder why lol.

It's departing on time.

Sorry Nick, I think we can say that we all want an appointment soon. It's the biggest one for years and REALLY needs to be the right one.

Tough crowd Nick.

7.) 29 May 2016 19:17:37
Quite right Bobslad but we ain't going to make it. I am as eager as you that the board make the right appointment, but hey we can have some fun while we wait surely.

Good job I am not a comedian CToffee, I would died on stage lol.

After our improved performance Wednesday I am confident of a win at Watford. COYB.

{Ed025's Note - got a draw written all over it for me nick..

1.) 08 Feb 2019 19:32:23
Reckon we can win as well Nick mate, would like to see Jimmy Mac in the Team though.

2.) 08 Feb 2019 19:32:47
Looking like a 6-6 draw.

3.) 08 Feb 2019 20:15:48
Yes we are away but if we lose won't this equate to 3 wins in 14 games, would that be truly acceptable even to Mr Moshri. This would be acceptable to a proven such as Benitez or dare I say Moyes (first season) but (beats head against wall) this man, does not have a CV (don't mention Olympiakos, micky mouse) , what he does have is a proven 6 month bubble then it bursts. If Mr Moshri can say what he did about Silva, why couldn't he have thought the same about Martinez (incidentally looking like a genius compared with Silva) . P. S. I would love a win but will take a draw.

4.) 08 Feb 2019 20:33:07
Sorry to say it but I can see a defeat on the cards 3_1 and more questions will be asked sorry to be pessimistic I will say sorry if I'm wrong 😫.

5.) 08 Feb 2019 20:57:14
Are you and are you.

6.) 08 Feb 2019 22:19:47
Ducks you are too impatient. Moyes didn't have a world class CV before coming to us, he finished 17th in his first season yet you champion him. I'm surprised you weren't calling for his head before that 1st season even finished.
What if Benitez comes? you would be posting the same negativity when he lost a few games. I don't think you will ever be happy with any modern manager because you won't give them any time.
I appreciate you have an opinion but your posts are super negative and so repetitive and your obvious hatred of Silva and Moshiri is unjust.

7.) 08 Feb 2019 22:21:16
I know we discuss week in week out about set pieces and the manager.

Silva will be going nowhere until at least the Summer, so any talk of any manager coming in before then is a no go.

It is up to Silva to sort out the dreadful defending at set pieces, it has not worked at Hull, Watford or Everton, time to ditch the zonal marking and go back to basics at defending.

In my opinion, unless he sorts the defending out, he will be on his way in the summer.

For now though, the bigger picture is for the players to step up and show some graft and effort.

8.) 08 Feb 2019 22:29:31
I was comparing Smit, with Moyes I maintain you could see something there and all of that with no money. After that how many of us were truly worried, I for one never was, I just wanted that elusive look we can beat anyone except you lot to be broken. I have been around since Catterick and beyond, the memory isn't as it was and I also refuse to troll the stats and history but something is surely wrong when you employ a proven failure and what is worse no evidence whatsoever he can improve. I hope above hope we hammer Watford tomorrow and go on a run, even as Ed25 says a draw is acceptable. Mr Moshri must be tearing his hair out but it is a problem of his own making, listening to this advisor that is going nowhere soon apparantly.

{Ed025's Note - its no used crying over spilled milk though DFS, the fact is he is here until the end of the season at least mate, so i suggest we just support the team and see where we end up, if he fails to address the problems he will be gone anyway i expect so just lets try and enjoy it..

10.) 08 Feb 2019 22:46:08
Smit don't be so silly. Benitez is a proven winner, he is precisely the type of Manager Moshri (sorry his advisor) should have been looking at for long term and I would back him to the hilt, the reason is obvious. You mistake negativity for realism. Martinez had something but was obstinate, Koeman I wanted knowing he was always a stop gap. Where are the positives with this fella, take two players Walcot and Lookman, Walcot we have all watched for weeks with the ball bouncing off him, making blind runs, and quite frankly not up to standard, Lookman starting on the right a 100 percent improvement again the whole of Goodison could see it. Question, Mr Silva 'why was Lookman not involved, was he injured? ', no it was a technical decision.

{Ed025's Note - they are your opinions though DFS, benitez is a definite no no for me mate but again thats just my opinion, we all have them..

11.) 08 Feb 2019 23:01:13
I don't get the Moyes had no money when he broke our transfer record 3 times in his tenure. Silva doesn't have the players to play his way and is just finding his feet. This season is a write off as a transitional season, next season hopefully after a successful summer recruitment we will see a more balanced side that the management team have assembled. Success doesn't happen overnight it takes time and patience. We need next season to get rid of the passengers (siggy, Walcott) and up the fitness to play the high press and then maybe we will see what Silva's vision is. The zonal marking isn't working and I fear for us every time we defend a set piece but Leicester won the league with lesser defenders using zonal marking, it just took them a season to adapt to it. I ain't Silva's biggest fan but I have faith that he can come good and we will see a more entertaining Everton that can compete and not have us pulling our hair out. If you expected to see us challenging this season then you are a dreamer, the project will take time, and this is coming from someone who wanted Benitez.

12.) 08 Feb 2019 23:18:01
I give up. See you next season lads and ladies.

13.) 08 Feb 2019 22:48:40
Just frustrated Ed, and bemused by what I see as ridiculous unfounded answers and excuses for the man. Sorry mate.

{Ed025's Note - as supporters there is nothing we can do about it DFS, i know it just seems like another lost season but we have to live in hope that he turns it around, and if not then im sure you will get your wish mate..

14.) 08 Feb 2019 22:51:46
Further Ed, I don't think he will go even if we are defeated tomorrow and beyond. We are in a financial quandry of our own making and as Ed002 says, Mr Moshri will be loath (commonsense at last perhaps) to continue paying yet another ex employees wages of millions a year. I do get where you are coming from mate.

{Ed025's Note - im as frustrated as the rest of you mate believe me..

15.) 09 Feb 2019 08:31:33
DFS Moyes isn't going to rise from the flames like a phoenix, there are better managers out there than Benitez that, if they came would come with less baggage.
Silva is here for at least 2 seasons. Moshiri won't sack him after 1 season and I can't see him sacking another manager mid season again.
Best to just jump on and come along for the ride, where ever it takes us.



29 Jan 2019 18:12:10
Given our problems up front. Would anyone have fancied getting Fellaini until the end of the season rather than dive in and get another unproven striker?

1.) 29 Jan 2019 18:27:10
He's not a striker tho.

2.) 29 Jan 2019 18:39:33
Knock balls into the area and watch him knock em in. Don't you remember him in the opposition area dentilad.

3.) 29 Jan 2019 19:06:47
Yeah, good player for us DFS. I'd prefer a proper striker though.



26 Jan 2019 23:59:06
Just a thought. would anyone have Moyes back now we have money to throw away?

1.) 27 Jan 2019 00:57:35
He is available and I would without question hen loves our club.

2.) 27 Jan 2019 10:19:48
I think while Bill is still in an executive role Moyes could not come back. On that note the next priority for Mr Moshri, is try to find a way to move Bill aside, I. E. honoury non executive position for life, until that happens we will be in permanent limbo.



26 Jan 2019 19:36:22
One man set his team up to attack the opposition weaknesses and one did not. Oh dear another season of hope over.



06 Oct 2018 17:01:37
1-2 away. Goodnight doom and gloomers :-)

1.) 06 Oct 2018 17:16:56

When I think of the money both Usmanov and Morishi have it makes me wonder just how big we could get and how far we could go. Remember little old MCFC? Oh well at least dreams are free lol.

Given that he wins leagues and cups, I could forgive him few tantrums for 2-3 years if he put silverware in the cabinet.

Well then why has Hughton never been linked with the big jobs? Why did our Iranian owner never consider him for interview? It seems something of a hoodoo in football. I like the guy and the way his teams play football. Its time he got a chance. Dyche does not have the funds we have so had to go for what he felt was value for money, a bit like our Iranian leader when he went for Big Sam, got real value for money there! I would be happy to see anyone of those three at Everton if it is decided to relieve Silva of his position. At least I would be happy knowing we have someone who is not scared to crack the whip. I would not look outside of England given the mess we have had for the past 3 seasons.

Why do people talk about managers who have yet to earn their corn in the EPL. If the likes of Howe, Hughton, and Dyche are overlooked by clubs why should others just walk in without any knowledge at all. I would give all the three aforementioned a chance before taking another chance on anyone else. If we are going to throw money about then yes get the likes of Conte etc, but if not then we need someone who has probably got as far as he can with the cub he is at. Howe gets a nose bleed north of Watford, Hughton's colour does not bode well with big clubs it would appear, which is a shame, which leaves Dyche who would certainly make us hard to beat.

But he has not gone bankrupt and knows how to run a business by using those in the know to guide him. He is learning fast about how to run a football club and surrounding himself with the staff who can take us where he wants us. Give him, Brands, and Silva a chance. You have a trigger finger DC :-)

Well if FM wants to listen to those who throw the knives he will get nowhere GB. He needs to listen to Brands, otherwise why make him a director? I know it is hard at the present time GB but it hurts to see our club in turmoil and the laughing stock of the EPL.

Why are people so keen to get rid of a manager after 5 minutes? If Silva is sacked before the end of the season then it will happen again and again and again. If FM sacks managers after 5 minutes then I hope he fecks off to another club and ruins them. What we need now is patience and allow Brands and Silva to create their own identity by getting the players they want. Whether or not that be by bringing on the youngsters and some new players or totally new players is to be seen, but they need time.

Given the season we are having, and where we might end up, I doubt quality players who are used to regular European competition would give us a second glance. Maybe we should do what others on here suggest and give the youngsters a chance from now until the end of the season. In and out the odd time is hardly going to do much good so perhaps a good run for them would be better. It might just make the next transfer window a bit easier for Marco and Brands.

Memo for secretary. Please send following letter asap.

Dear Mr Moyes

You left us to manage the biggest club in the world. You had the chance to win silverware beyond your wildest dreams and probably get a knighthood. You messed up. Since then you have gone downhill and taken a club down with you. I am not sure if you are trying to get back here as I keep hearing you are the bookies first choice. I should point out we have a new motto here now. "The only way is up". Something you are not doing.

Goodbye and good luck in your search for employment
