1. Does this guy really sound like someone you want managing Everton out of a rough patch?

2. I don't think appointing some boss manager is going to be the solution to all of our issues. The last two summer transfer window shit shows couldn't have happened if there weren't deeper structural issues at the club. Ultimately, it's more important to our long-term success that we sort those problems out, i.e. this is probably a bad time to be looking for a manager who we want to be here for multiple years.

If we sack Koeman, I think the best course of action is to hire Unsworth to see out the season while we seriously re-think the director of football position. Moshiri/Kenwright need to figure out what their vision is for the club - how they want us to play, the importance of promoting from the academy, etc. - and make a serious investment in whoever is most qualified to make it happen. Walsh could be suitable for the job, and it would be easy for us if he is, but if you believe any of the recent grumblings ("has baggage", "like an old woman") it really doesn't seem that way.

I don't think many posters on here have a bigger hard-on for talented managers from abroad than I do, but it's a bit pointless hiring someone like that unless we have a solid foundation in place. Nobody who's genuinely good at the job will want to stay for more than a year or two if we're a complete mess behind the scenes, which means we'd regularly be in the position of hoping that Moshiri/Kenwright pick a new good manager to replace a departing good manager. I don't know how others feel about that but it makes me deeply uneasy. Build a sustainable backroom structure first, worry about managerial talent second.

And to get out in front of the "Unsworth is too inexperienced and will get us relegated" shouts - despite the imbalanced squad, we have better players than most PL sides. If someone like Tim Sherwood, who is a clueless buffoon, can guide a team with a better squad than most of the league to a comfortable finish, so can Unsworth. He has a lot more experience managing - not just coaching but actually managing - at the U23 level, not to mention that he isn't a self-aggrandizing twat. I don't think Unsworth has anywhere near the disaster potential that some make out, especially given his obvious man-management skills.

It's got to the stage where it's become precarious enough to consider that Koeman has every chance of being relieved of his duties. At the beginning of the season, the prospects for the club and the team looked promising. 9 games in, and we're in the bottom 3 with a goal difference of minus 11. 1 point from 3 in the Uefa Cup group stage and bottom of the league there too. The way we capitulated against Arsenal in the second half on Sunday was mind-boggling. We were dreadful.

Any of the same types of performance against Chelsea on Wednesday will see us out of the Carabao Cup. We will be running out of competitions to bed in the squad and it will leave us in a situation where trying to put together a run of games will only offer the players the promise of a season based on survival. We need a big name to attract the quality of players (strikers especially) to the club. This is the reason someone like Ancelloti would seem to be a rational choice.

Perhaps Unsworth would be able to step in, but would the board trust him with the funds that appear to be necessary to sort out the balance of the squad? He has been given funds for the under 23's, but making signings for the first team is a far more expensive undertaking. I'm not sure they would give Unsworth the backing that would appear necessary to address the serious issues we appear to be facing. This is a critical time in the clubs history. With the quality of the performances we've been showing, relegation is a real possibility.

Which of those big names on the list would countenance taking over a club like ours, which is in turmoil and chaos on the pitch? It's going to cost a lot of money to sack Koeman and a lot of money to organise a new backroom team. Don't be surprised that there's still a possibility, Koeman will still be here for the January window. It's a huge decision the board is faced with.

Another dumb poll, because it somehow suggests we've got a choice. Make it who'd  come and it would be more realistic. Our biggest issue has always been out expectation and it's our biggest downfall. We're suggesting some of the best managers out there would think "Mmm, I fancy a shot at that Everton side. Bags of potential and got money now. I'll give up my good job I reckon". Yet we have a thread asking if we're gonna get relegated!!!! Only Evertonians...

Fuck the Eddie Howe shouts, if you look at the league table his Bournmouth are right beside us in the bottom three. I think he has lost what he had.
He is a Moyes dressed up in Ancelotti clothes.

The poll is just out of interest. Obviously we don't have a choice of who we get as we aren't board members.  Its a poll to see what peoples thoughts on who would be their personal choice.

Out of the names on there the majority are either at clubs that would see Everton as a step up or are currently unemployed like Ancelotti or Tuchel.  I don't see any unrealistic shouts like Guardiola, Mourinho or Conte on the list.

As I stated earlier the poll is a bit of fun just to see supporters thoughts and if people don't agree with free choice of the poll you are more than welcome not to cast a vote and chat on another thread.

After his sacking it now seems a little more relevant.

We might yet appoint someone else, but Unsworth will surely take charge for cup tie and possibly future games while we consider options. Would love to see him given the chance to get us playing and can't wait to see how he does.

He only had the Norwich game before, but that was a team that was blown apart and we actually looked really decent, albeit in a end of season knock about against Norwich.

But it was a sea change in terms of players wanting to play for the club and putting in effort.
