I cant believe im doing this again!!

'Koeman chose to freeze out Niasse' - you honestly think hes good enough? I bet when the new manager comes in and we get a striker we rarely, if at all, see Niasse again, and there is a reason for that.
'Koeman knew Lukaku would not be signing' So did the board, the board chose not to sign anyone as they deemed them too expensive, hardly Koemans fault.
'Koeman stated we needed to share the goals around' - we got Sigurdsson, Klassen and Rooney so they did that, with a striker they'd have someone to run off, someone to hold the ball up and probably would do this
'Koeman failed Everton miserably' - Did he phuck, he had his pants pulled down by the board by not signing a recognised striker. Koeman did have his flaws but some people on here would lay global warming and world famine at his feet given half the chance, when in reality a good majority of his ability to do his job was removed by failures above him.

Fair points. You can't go into a Premier League season with just an inexperienced kid and a sub standard lad from the Russian league as your only options up front and not expect to struggle. Towards the end Koeman tried every permutation imaginable and still couldn't fashion a goal threat.

Unsy has clearly nailed his colours to the Rooney mast as evidenced in his first two games. Maybe as Rooney is the most popular guy in the squad and probably the most vocal, to give him the best shot at galvanising the troops and getting the job full-time. Hasn't worked. Rooney is un-coachable, he does what he likes on the pitch and as Mourinho highlighted, the team shape suffers for it.
Whoever gets the job has the unenviable task of solving the Rooney conundrum.

I agree with this. Put sig behind Rooney and Sandro. Swap one of them for mirrallas at 60 minutes. Goals may not flow but we would improve.

Wouldn't have Rooney and Sig on the park at the same time. They gravitate to the same areas, regardless of where they are supposed to be playing. It's their natural game and they've both been successful doing it, it's just unfortunate that we have both of them in our squad.
