Thought he'd been doing a good job at PNE so i'm disappointed to hear he's been sacked.

Hope we can get him involved in the club while he's out of work. Fantastic coach.

Yes, I am also disappointed and a bit upset as they did not give him enough time.
I am sure he'll get over it and find another team to manage.

Already a thread on this: http://www.nsno.co.uk/e107_plugins/smf/smf.php?topic=439.0

But yes, I'd like him back.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

I like Irvine, but bring him back to do what? Don't see how he would improve us.

I think we've probably moved on from him now, but agree it's a shame he wasn't given more time, made the play offs last season did they not?

Shame he's lost his job because he wasn't given much time when you consider this is more or less his first bad patch. But, I was fearful that if Moyes went for any reason we would go for Irvine as manager.  And I would like to think we are beyond going for a championship manager with a connection to the club. I would like to think we would try and go for someone like Hiddink, after all we have finished 5th in the last two seasons; and as big name as Hiddink is he is not scared of a challenge.

No chance ever for Hiddink. Moyes goes, we'll get someone at a "lesser" club in the Prem (Coyle?) or someone doing a decent job in the Championship.

We might want to give Irvine a job, but he's been on his own feet, he may not relish being an assistant (or something similar).
He may be looking for his next managerial job,

Agreed Moyes was a championship manager doing well. But that's what we've always done, and in the 35 years I've been watching Everton it's worked twice Howard Kendall and, to a certain extent Moyes.My point is, if the fifth top club in the best league in the world limits itself to looking in the championship for a manager we will never inproove.
