I know some of the names on here were probably never going to happen but Allardyce getting 9 votes out of 221 cast tells us all of the popularity this appointment has brought.

Always good to rely on agents to conduct your managerial search.

There are consulting agencies capable of helping us search the world for the right personnel. And they probably cost a small fraction of what we pay [insert player or staff member you hate here, you should be able to think of plenty]. I wish Moshiri and Kenwright would admit they don't have a clue and get help from someone (or some group) who does.

I wonder if not having an agent with a pool of talented young players was deemed a major part of the issue with recruitment.

It was well documented that Moshiri had met him, so dont know what the tweet refers to as it was common knowledge?

Everton's manager hunt appears set to lead them to veteran manager Sam Allardyce, with The Times reporting he could be appointed as soon as today.

It would be a pragmatic appointment for the here and now considering their poor league form, but not the long term one they need.

Majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has been trying to think big, and has been reaching out to Europe's best known agent, Jorge Mendes.

Often referred to as a 'super agent', Mendes' advice and connections have played a part in Wolves shaping their current Championship table topping side.

The Independent reported that Mendes was behind the recent Everton job interview held between Moshiri and Shakhtar's Paulo Fonseca.

Mendes was reportedly present for the meeting, but the Ukrainian club have now blocked Fonseca's exit even though he was keen on a move.

Everton also reached out to Mendes to enquire about Wolves boss Nuno Santo earlier this month, a move which was blocked, The Express and Star report.

Moshiri's efforts may not have paid off on this occasion, but Mendes is a smart contact for Moshiri to have onside.

This connection could even show benefit in the upcoming transfer window, and the Everton chief deserves some credit for trying to think big, and outside the box, even if it has not exactly been the smoothest of transitions between managers.

Seems to me a managerial appointment is a complete shot in the dark especially in the Premier League, there are so many factors that could make it successful or make it fail. I don't think any owner or chairman has a clue just luck of the drawer.

Promoting from within, next big thing, under the radar, safe pair of hands there appears to be no magic bullet.
