I am not sure who I would want to get the new managers role but with Fonseca being out my shortlist would be:
1 Emery
2 Benitez
3 Silva.

Southern Toffee

that's my order as well although I will back whoever comes in our club needs backing and stability.

2.) 18 May 2018 07:04:15
Emery for me but I have a feeling it's Silva.

3.) 18 May 2018 08:05:29
We, the fans, have our own favourites for the Everton manager’s job.
Our opinions are valid and honestly held, but are based on limited information.
Objective statistics - like win percentage, trophies won, etc. - are obviously important, but they offer no guarantee that such success would be repeated at Everton. Whoever is appointed, there is a risk.
There are other aspects imho (many being behind-the-scenes) of being a football manager - man-management, player development, motivational skills, recruitment, relationship with club hierarchy, media relationship, personal ambition, etc., etc. - that we don’t necessarily have much knowledge of as fans.
I just hope that the club are genuinely sussing-out these factors as they interview the candidates and that the club makes its hiring decision based on a rational long-term plan and not merely some romantic short-term wishful thinking.

4.) 18 May 2018 10:18:33
Good post. But I don't think we actually are interviewing candidates by the sounds of things which tells me silva is already done and dusted. Once this legal noncence is sorted he will be announced.

5.) 18 May 2018 16:29:42
My choice never gets mentioned here or on radio/ television in the betting so I expect some abuse here but here goes.
Gary Rowett, I also like the Huddersfield manager even if he if friends with Klopp.

{Ed025's Note - i have to say dark clouds that i think you deserve loads of abuse for the gary rowett shout mate, but i think david wagner is a decent shout..

6.) 18 May 2018 18:17:43
Tbh ed I think Gary rowett is going to be a good manager, was unlucky to be sacked by Birmingham but think it's way too soon for us. He is also an ex player of ours (only 4 games if my old brain remembers correctly) so surprised he hasn't been mentioned more. I do think Silva is nailed on tho.

{Ed025's Note - me too geoff, gary rowett may indeed become a good manager but at this time i would not be happy with him as our manager mate..

7.) 18 May 2018 20:16:44
Wagner is a cracking shout. Seems to me though that the man has totally bought into Huddersfield and appears to be a genuinely loyal person. Have to admit, even though I have criticised him, Martinez totally bought into Everton and left with dignity. If only he had addressed the build foundations from the bottom strategy we would not be in the position we are now.

Rumours of a move for Lascelles from Newcastle don’t know a great deal about him myself any others have an opinion or know much about him?

Southern Toffee

1.) 11 May 2018 00:01:53
Highly thought of at Newcastle. I'd have him in our team. Young and strong, can defend well and good at defending and attacking corners. Contracted til 2023 I think so probably hard to get him.

2.) 11 May 2018 06:46:12
Good player imo. One of the main reasons they are staying up. Can score goals too. We looked at him before he joined Geordie from forest. Think he would improve our defence loads.

3.) 11 May 2018 07:38:39
I knew he was highly rated at forest didn’t know how he had kicked on
So an upgrade on Williams? 😂.

4.) 11 May 2018 08:27:57
Anyone would be an upgrade on Williams mate.

5.) 11 May 2018 11:00:35
He's Newcastles stand out performer. Probably his brilliant CB play has saved them this season.

Strong character too and speaks well. Captain type. If Newcastle do sell, if be surprised if their wasn't a lot of interest.

Big step up for us. Scores too.

6.) 11 May 2018 10:55:55
My American bulldog would be a n improvement on Williams. Defiantly has more bite about him.

7.) 12 May 2018 11:43:37
Very good player and would be a good addition. Echo what others have said, strong, fast and a proper defender. Good leadership and seems to have a winner's character.
This is one of our weakest areas so we need also to add more quality. Others we should be looking at include Mawson, Nathan Ake and Smalling from the Prem and De Vrij, De Ligt and Chiellini (out of contract and a big last pay day may tempt him, still the best defender in Europe) .
Add at least a left back and a few midfield/ striker options with pace and creativity and we should have a good season, next year.



08 May 2018 10:33:14
Reports circulating in the Netherlands that Brands could be announced this week! Would be a huge step in the right direction for me!
Fingers crossed this is true and happens and it’s good news from the Netherlands and not a Nevergoingtohappenland story 🤞.

Southern Toffee

1.) 08 May 2018 11:38:21
if it's true it's a start Southern still some massive decisions to be made do we get a new manager or stick with this idiot just who replaces Elstone (somebody half decent would be a start) that man has made some shocking decisions reg our club Kitbag being the biggest one which players stay or go who do we bring in just what is happening with the stadium as Dan Mies said in March we are more weeks away rather than months to see designs and we are still waiting it's hard being a blue.

2.) 08 May 2018 15:44:16
Well if it is true bluey, why would we keep SA? If we did get Brands and he dictated the way he wants us to play, could you honestly see SA being able to pull it off. He only knows one way and that's the mid table way. We need a complete clear out from DF to coaching staff (bar a few) .

3.) 08 May 2018 19:20:47
The reports from holland acutely said that brands could be announced this week but if not announced this week he will probably not be joining us guess we just have to wait till brands comes out with his decision.

4.) 08 May 2018 21:33:55
Nick agree with you on this.

If Marcel Brands is coming to Everton then as the Director of Football he will have a style of play in mind.

I cannot see Allardyce dovetailing with his appointment.

Ed25 may be right and he stays one more season in order for the club to get the right guy but the bottom line is Sam is a stop gap to better things, ensuring we stay competetive (dire football i know) in the league i. e. top 10 finish. Not good enough for our club, agreed but I do think we will start getting things right in the next couple of seasons.

As they say, a journey of a thousands steps starts with the first. The first was last summer and i expect us to make more progress this summer.

Since 1987 this club has been on a downward trajectory and unfortunatley it'll take time to fix.



07 May 2018 22:37:53
Tell you what if these rumours of potential likes to Raiola are true and also the rumours of a him potentially sorting out a move for young Kluivert to join us I would have some of that!
Still just a rumour but if it comes off. get in!

Southern Toffee

1.) 08 May 2018 08:25:07
Where have you seen or heard this from mate.

2.) 08 May 2018 09:55:40
With you on that Southern mate.

3.) 08 May 2018 09:56:33
With you on that Southern, mate.

4.) 08 May 2018 10:22:00
Tutti Mercato Web which is an Italian Sports news outlet, how much truth there is in it is yet to be seen but news was that young Kluivert has chosen to move to Raiola as his agent and that we have emerged as a possible destination for the youngster.

5.) 08 May 2018 20:09:11
Wouldn't get too excited over Raiola, he'll take more out than he'll put in, the man's a cancer to football.



19 Apr 2018 07:20:51
Also seeing reports down here in the south that we are looking to rival Arsenal for Fredericks who is going to be out of contract in June, not sure we need a right back with Coleman and Kenny as back up. 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Southern Toffee

1.) 21 Apr 2018 06:59:13
If Fulham are promoted, I could imagine their best players staying. A season of these players proving themselves in the PL would benefit their future prospects - and increase their transfer value if Fulham eventually decided to sell.

So Sam has gone and it’s cost us £6m my question though is do we also pay compensation to all the others?

Southern Toffee

{Ed025's Note - probably ST..

1.) 16 May 2018 20:17:10
They got a hard life eh mate.

2.) 16 May 2018 20:50:23
6 million is nothing for Moshiri when if we got relegated value of club would of plummeted, Sunderland worth nothing now, he was merely protecting his business when appointing Allardyce.

3.) 16 May 2018 20:54:22
My understanding is Sam employs his staff. They get 3 months wages. Not sure about the DOF.



15 May 2018 18:45:08
It’s a managerial merry go round! Spin the wheel and see who we get!
Main things is Sam being gone not sure I can listen to anymore of his rubbish.

Southern Toffee



11 May 2018 07:41:14
So I see Big Sam is on Sky Sports at 7pm Monday for the season review managers special. will he still be a manager though? 🤔.

Southern Toffee

1.) 11 May 2018 09:55:26
I think he will be gone monday/ Tuesday next week.

2.) 11 May 2018 15:09:22
Then he can disrespect Everton all he wants to the media, as he’ll have got his pay-off sorted and he’ll be full of gravy.



27 Apr 2018 16:48:08
We can all speculate on whether he is staying or going but this is my 2 cents worth
1, why would you keep your club stagnating for another 12 months?
2, why would you tell your current manager he’s gone? He’s not actually done much wrong if his job remit was to make us safe so job done.
3, there isn’t much to be done 3 games left so why sack him now and rock the boat?
4, didn’t Sam go through the same thing at West Ham? Sure he acted similar back then as well
5, if Brands is really coming I am sure he will be having input on the playing and coaching staff plus recruitment so might be waiting for his input
And ok bit more than 2 cents lol 😂.

Southern Toffee

1.) 27 Apr 2018 17:45:32
His press conference shows that he doesn't know whether he is staying yet. Otherwise he would have been a lot more smug/ direct in his answers, especially when asked again to confirm what was discussed. My feeling is it is all still up in the air as far as he is concerned.
My 2 cents are, Walsh will go the week after the last game with Allardyce soon after. Brands and another to come in.

2.) 27 Apr 2018 23:23:26
I feel and hope the same! He’s the sort of bloke that if things had gone his way would be ramming it down the throats of everyone pulling his jacket off and doing that stupid dance again like at Palace.
Or something like David Brent even.

3.) 27 Apr 2018 23:31:03
Smitt I agree.
Think it's likely a few pieces need to fall in place before any decision is made.
Who will be DOF is likely priority.
Obviously I'm sure that coaches have been approached and sure, some will not be interested and others will be but having to be respectful to their current employer.

Think it's going to change pretty fast.
Moshiri and Bill are the ones we need to hear from if BS is staying.
I'm of the opinion that we are all getting worked up over speculation and no info.

I saw his PC today and he said he was planning for next season. All managers say that. When pushed to clarify he blurted out a yes and it all moved on.

Sam likes to enjoy those ego moments but as someone has said, he seemed very reserved and almost wanting to change the subject. That to me means nothing has changed. I'm sure it's still all up for review AT THE END OF THE SEASON.



26 Apr 2018 22:33:21
Ed002 I have to say it’s been a pleasure over my time on this site to have your insight and information like with all things in life I haven’t always agreed with some things but the world would be dull if we all agreed all the time. You will be missed and so will the transfer insights and sharkopods!
All the best in the future endeavours and if you have any insights or transfer murmurs before you ship off please let us know.

Southern Toffee

1.) 27 Apr 2018 11:47:05
Really sorry to see you go ED002. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

A class act.

2.) 27 Apr 2018 13:22:46
Same here. Thanks for all your insights.

3.) 27 Apr 2018 17:22:11
Have I missed something? Ed002 is leaving? If so I wish you the best of luck, your information is always spot on. Thanks for having us ;)

4.) 27 Apr 2018 17:55:40
Says who? Lol. Only joking Ed, you will be missed along with that sharp tongue.

I’m ok with Silva he will need the time and support for him and brands to adapt the team he is one of the 3 I would say possible
Silva is the more likely
Emery would be the reach but still possible
And Rafa would be the experienced seasoned manager.

I would have Emery even if he cost more than Silva because Silva looks to come with a hefty piece of compensation
Is anyone else looking at Emery?

Have to say I am leaning towards Rafa but then I would t object to some of the other names like Fonseca or Emery and as mentioned before I even think Arteta could be a great shout
With Silva I think he could be a good manager just worry with the baggage attached right now however if he gets the gig he will get my support.

Emery is a big move for Arsenal I think they will be quite strong under Unai.
I don’t think the hammers getting Pellegrini is quite the same, it depends how well their board backs him financially, and also depends on whether they do get a DOF like Sullivan says they will. All the time Sullivan is running the show I think West Ham will struggle.

I think the correct thing is that both don’t want players being sold from there squad if you listen to their points correctly
So my point stands that Brands is here to create a team not dismantle it.

I think the biggest thing was to get a real DOF and now we work down so next is the right manager/ head coach
Is Silva or anyone else right. only time will tell I would’ve liked Emery but I am not against Silva I think it’s harsh to judge his premier league record as his hull side were rubbish but he did well and was doing well at Watford prior to our chase. I hear his tactics and coaching are what sets him apart
West Han baulked at the release fee for Rafa but 6 million doesn’t seem too bad for a proven premier league manager.
Arteta is still another option

Whoever comes in has a big job ahead!
