*Shakes head* Everton again.

Recommended Posts

Everton are continuing to assess candidates to succeed sacked Marco Silva on a permanent basis despite caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson's flying start - with Shanghai SIPG coach Vitor Pereira high on their list.

 

Ferguson galvanised Everton on and off the pitch as they moved out of the Premier League relegation zone with an outstanding performance in the 3-1 victory over Chelsea at Goodison Park on Saturday.

 

It was a result that gave Everton's hierarchy vital breathing space to assess their options in replacing Silva, who was sacked after 18 months in charge following the 5-2 Merseyside derby defeat by Liverpool at Anfield.

 

Everton owner Farhad Moshiri was delighted with how Ferguson had such an instant impact on their fortunes but it is still their intention to appoint a permanent manager as soon as possible.

There was informal contact to gauge the extent of sacked ex-Arsenal boss Unai Emery's interest, while Bournemouth's Eddie Howe is another manager with admirers in the Everton boardroom.

 

Howe, however, insists he is committed to the Cherries and is unlikely to leave mid-season - while Spaniard Marcelino is another out-of-work coach looking for a route back into football after he was sacked by Valencia earlier this season.

 

Former Everton manager David Moyes has also been discussed, although his chances appear to be receding.

 

Following his successes at Porto, Pereira, 51, impressed Everton when he was interviewed in 2013 before Roberto Martinez was appointed as successor to Moyes.

 

Everton want the new man in quickly, but equally there is no sense of emergency either after Ferguson's spectacular start.

 

The Toffees' next match is away to Manchester United on Sunday.

Eberton aren't we.

 

Tell you hat though, if they bring someone in soon then as soon as they lose a game the fans will be singing Fergusons name.

The Ferguson thing is backfiring on them the same way that the Solksjaer appointment backfired on United (and, to a smaller extent, the same way Dalglish's temporary appointment backfired on us a few years ago).

 

If it goes poorly, then it's probably not the end of the world to have a club legend in the manager's spot for a few games while you sort out a long-term solution. The problem is when it goes well. All of a sudden, you're getting huge fan pressure to appoint someone as manager who hasn't really earned the job.

 

I'm not 100% sure on Pereira - he had a great reputation at Porto but since then seems to pick one terrible situation after another - but I'm certain he's far more qualified than "Big Dunc." I hope they win another two games on the bounce and then scrap all their work and just hire him permanently. Hopefully with a huge clause they have to pay when they inevitably sack him next October when they're in 12th.

With the nightmare fixtures o. December I would let Dunc get on with it. New manager January. By get on with it I mean kick and rush , get it in the mixer early and as much violence on and off the ball as possible. With the win last week they would take a couple of draws before January. Kind of ironic they slated big Sam's style of football wait to you see where Dunc goes

Hope they go for Howe.   I'll look forward to routine derby wins with that idiot setting his side up to lose against every better team they face.

They haven't got any money which will put off most new managers. 

 

Big Dunc is Kenwrights dream, gets everyone as misty eyed as him about the past and wont have to pay him off if it goes wrong. I he gets it right it will be seen as a masterstroke that unites the fans and gets the "real" Everton back.

The powershift still might be on. Brand’ eye for a player. Ancelotti in as manager attracting top class players and the Usmanov money. Bit early to start gloating about them being shite

Player Valuation: £70m

If we get Ancellotti it would change a lot of players attitudes towards us 
That and Brands supposed eye for a player plus Moshiri/ Usmanov money might convince one or two truly top class players to come here

It’s a minor point but another problem with sticking with Ferguson for too long is that players will be drilled everyday in training and get used to his style of throwback football, if they then get a manager who wants to play something different it just increases the work they have to do. 
 

The players should be intelligent enough to adapt you’d imagine but any transition will cause hiccups and any hiccups will be pounced on by the fans as their expectations are so bloody high.

Moshiri said earlier in the year that he isn't putting any of his own money in anymore. Well loaning it to the club anyway. The club owes him between £350m-£400m.

 

Their income dropped with sponsorship deals expiring, 79 per cent of their income goes on wages and their matchday income is less that our main stand per season. The Swiss Ramble on Twitter said that they are expected to make a loss between £120m-£130m.

It will help them, I think. Everton aren't equipped to be a big club, tossing cash around. They've always been better finding bargains and being underdogs.
