I see Gatusso has left Fiorentia after 3 weeks because his agent - Mendes - wanted too much of a say in transfer business.

Maybe that is why we have moved on from Nuno.

Whatever the reason Nuno hasn't come out of this kindly

I thought we'd gone away from plain brown envelopes but these agents seem to want to find ways around it.

Well the fixtures are out, and whoever we get in needs to hit the ground running, we have a kind start to the season and a pretty tough November and April/ May so if we mess up early it is going to be a long season.

Of course we all know being Everton we will drop loads of points in those early fixtures, doom and gloom will set in and then we will miraculously beat the top teams fill us all with unwarranted optimism and then finish 10th again. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

All this talk of appointing a winner is about as useless as the years spent whining after a 20 goal striker.

They do not grow on trees. The number of managers who enjoy success at multiple clubs is even fewer, and those that fall into either category that would join Everton right now are next to if not 0.

We need the right manager, not Moyes, but someone who can have that impact. Understand the club, put some sort of philosophy into our play, set up our training. One that works for the players we have, and can work with Brands to bring in the right talent.

The likes of Conte, Rafa et all should be steered clear of.

I have no idea who the manager is that fits that bill, and more often than not only time will tell, but it's not my job to find him. But he is out there, and someone at our beloved club needs to dam well find him this time.

Big Dunc. Let him have a go.

2.) 01 Jun 2021 18:07:51
Iโ€™ve never been less bothered about who the next manager is. Iโ€™ve seriously lost heart.

If it makes anyone feel better, I am told by a mate that we got the highest pts for a side finishing 10th in a 38 game season. Yes the press haven't mentioned this record breaking feet๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Broke the record by 7pts too. ๐Ÿ™„.


1.) 23 May 2021 21:10:55
Only Everton.

Is their a trophy for this? โ‚ฉ.

I love that we have made the same changes to see out this game, that we made to try and win the last one. Says all you need to know about the depth ๐Ÿ™„.

Portuguese or not, it's not like we have a great track record for signing great young talent from across Europe, so I'm really not sure what the argument about where he gets his young players is coming from.

I'm not necessarily saying it's a bad thing. I've said in other posts I think Nuno is a decent choice.
Just not sure that is what we are looking for in Manager. And by we I mean the decision makers not the fans.


{Ed025's Note - if he brings pedro neto and jiminez with him he would be the right choice EFCONE..

I am getting the impression from the press and rumours that Nuno is wanting to pretty much take over whatever he club he gets the gig for. Staff, players, big transfer kitty, advisors, and so on. Doesn't feel like that is a fit for us.


{Ed0666's Note - Really and what have the managers that donโ€™t have all the responsibly achieve for you mate? Maybe you need someone with full autonomy and someone whose fully invested and wonโ€™t dance under the pale moonlight when Real Madrid flutter their eyelids?

I absolutely think we should fill the bench with the likes of Broadhead, Gordon, Onyango, Nkyoiyou rather than the useless dross we currently deploy.

Replace the 7 or 8 squad players and salaries with 3 or 4 absolute quality first team starters. Use youth to fill the gaps, we don't have huge game commitments anyway.

I don't know much about the rumours etc, but isn't Colin Chong the guy in charge of the stadium project? If he is involved in anything then we may well find the stadium is in trouble. I sincerely hope not, it would be a new low in our storied search for a new home - and there have been a lot already.

Football Insider reports it, so basically made up by some nameless ex player who needs a few quid.

Not meaning to offend, but that is rubbish. Most of it is mentality.

DCL, Richarlison, Pickford, Mina, Digne, Godfrey, Keane - (most of the time) , Allan, Dacoure, Rodriguez are all players who are capable of challenging in top tier clubs. Maybe not for titles, but certainly good enough for our ambitions. I'm sure plenty will tell me all the negative things they can about the above crop of players without one mention of the positives, but that's life.

A good manager with the correct vision, ability to motivate, could take that squad, add a few signings to fix its deficiencies and make it competitive.

I simply don't buy that it's all down to poor recruitment.

I see things differently.

The premier league is a big draw for managers. Everton despite our best efforts, are still a fairly big club within that league.

West Ham were more than a million miles off champions league football last season, yet gave it a very good go this.

Getting the right manager is not easy, and history tells me we won't get the right manager. But, if we do, with a few shrewd additions we could at the very least challenge for champions league next season.

To be fair, from what I saw in the friendlies Gofrey looked like he let the occasion get to him a little, and I'm ignoring his pass back from that. I just hope it doesn't dent his confidence as calling Ben White up, he must know now that it could have been him. But to be fair Ben White is a great prospect so no disgrace on Godfrey at all.

I can see why Nuno may not be everyone's first choice, however I would love to here a coherent explanation as to why he is a terrible choice, or at least why any other candidate is so much of a better choice.

All have pros and cons. Only time will tell if the choice we make is right. But Nuno feels a fairly safe choice, and perhaps that's what we need right now.

What I personally like about Nuno is he has a vision, and a plan. One which was derailed massively by some key injuries this season, imagine where we would have finished if DCL was injured so early in the season as Jimenez. He also can attract young talented players via his connections - and with us being in theory a bigger draw than Wolves, may prove even more fruitful for us than it has for them.

What I don't like, is that his aim was to turn a side who is good without the ball, into one that is good with the ball, and it didn't work. That is what we need so injuries to one side, that's a big question mark.
