. so Hammers name Pellegrini, Arsenal about to name Emery and nothing yet from us. It looks like it's going to be Silva and I wish him all the best but I can't help feeling that once more Everton FC is not thinking big enough and going for second best. I mean Benitez, Emery, Wenger, Fonseca, Nangolen - these guys are all proven winners and would of been a step in the right direction in my opinion. to be fair to Farhad he's certainly splashed the cash on players, credit where due, but each of his managerial appointments thus far have been a complete failure, 1 feels he needs to get it right this time and all I'm saying is I think we could do a lot better than Silva and think higher and recruit from a number of proven managerial winners who are available!

What's to say any you mentioned would consider joining us. We may of enquired and been rejected. Just because it isn't in the rags doesn't mean it hasn't happened. Silva is highly thought of and imo a decent choice. We will certainly play better and more attractive football than we have done for past 6 months.

When Silva has been with a club that isn’t struggling he’s done well. He’s won leagues and cups. You could argue the competitive nature of the leagues he’s worked in but then the PL is an animal of its own.

Whilst I worry about the speed of the downturn once it started at Watford, I also am impressed by his record at such a young age. He has a good coaching reputation in the game. We don’t have to worry about recruitment as we have a new DOF for that.

He’s proved he can win things and is not afraid of the top six teams. (Beaten Man U and Liverpool) . I’d happily give this guy a go as at the very least we will see better football than least season.

So we are not hiring a Manager but a coach working under an experienced DoF. If that is what Toffee Ace and others are saying then the likes of Martinez, Silva, Howe fit the profile. The outstanding candidate though and a proven winner at this level is Benitez. And yes it is not a case of could but I would certainly say that Silva has won things but in Micky Mouse Leagues. He took Hull down and the speed of Watfords decline under him is certainly worrying. The quality and speed of the changes since Wednesday show that Mr Moshri is almost certainly taking good advice from someone who knows his/ her stuff. Hopefully Mr Brands even though he does not start until next week has given Mr Moshri other options other than Mr Silva and Mr Howe.

Theres just no winning here with whomever we appoint. Frankly It's pathetic!

There's cons to every manager we could appoint. Arteta - lack of experience. Emery - never managed in EPL, Wenger - stuck in his ways of 20 years ago and unwilling to evolve his style to a new premiership style, Silva - Down with Hull and went off the boil at the end of his Watford tenure etc etc. Let's just show faith that the club know better than us and give our new manager a fighting chance before the boo boys set out on another mission to get somebody out of the club. As for those whinging about the speed of appointment, isn't it a good thing to assess our opportunities fully before making a rash appointment just to be quick?

Personally speaking i think the stand out candidate and personal choice would be Benitez, he does wonders in the EPL and Newcastle will be a real threat next year because of him! But we just cannot bring him in, it's very well known about his demands to have sole control over transfer dealings and that would nullify our appointment of Brands. So my full support goes to whomever gets the job and i intend to give the very minimum of a full season to see how he gets on before i even contemplate criticism, it takes time to build something after all!

22 May 2018 14:40:45
Well it stands to reason that if you hire someone of Brands reputation, you would certainly get him to work on the most important appointment we can make this summer. And indeed if there’s a better yet realistic target out there then I’m all for it. I don’t think Benitez is realistic though as he’s a Liverpool fan and has a job he can stay in if he chooses. Ashley is desperate for him to stay so I can’t see that happening. But I’m not against it.

There may still be a twist like there was when it looked certain that Arteta would go to Arsenal. Some new names being mentioned are Arteta and AVB.

It does look like the younger the appointment the more likely it will be more coach than manager. Well if that structure works then I’m sold.

22 May 2018 14:55:35
. the point I’m trying to make is that we keep getting told as supporters that the powers that be at the Club have ambitions of Everton breaking into the top 4, but the facts of the matter are that we havnt won anything or any silverware/ cups for 30 years? There’s probably a reason for this and as our club motto is ‘nil satis nisi optimum’, let's for the first time in 30 years show some ambition and go for a manager that has won silverware and has those credentials to help us achieve those aims and be the best, for me Benitez would be good but I will back Silva if he gets the job!

22 May 2018 15:15:51
Newcastle will be mid table at best next season. Ashley will not give Benitez a transfer kitty large enough to improve the team any further. That may be the one reason if Benitez was to leave.

And the reason for him not coming to us because of the transfer control makes a whole lot of sense.

22 May 2018 15:39:41
It's just an echo chamber lads.
You sign up to discuss rumours and we all find ourselves frustrated at a fugazi.

It's micro madness. Step back it's all ok.

22 May 2018 15:53:50
I don't buy into this are new manager must be a proven winner tosh. Any manager is a risk and winning trophies doesn't necessarily mean they would be able to do it in the PL. Her's one for all the must be a proven winner fans in the last two seasons his team has won 4 trophies and two league titles his current team has win ration of 70.83% his previous a win ratio of 50%. Now these stats are as good as any of the managers mentioned and yet somehow I don't think many would like to see the proven winner Brendon Rogers as our next manager. How about we just let our management select the next manager and we just support them without whinging about who the haven't picked or considered according to the media.

22 May 2018 18:46:59
Quite agree SA, but why are we dragging our feet when both Arsenal and West Ham, have made their choices and have time now to evaluate their playing staff. I just hope if it is Silva or whoever they are already talking with our new DOF. We can't have another start like last season.

22 May 2018 19:47:21
Of course I will give my full support to whoever is appointed and agree with Toffee Ace. However there is a but and that is the Club apparently hell bent on giving Silva a 5-6 year contract from the off. Does anyone seriously agree with that?

{Ed025's Note - stability..total commitment...is it really so hard to believe DFS?, if farhad believes he is the long term solution then who are we to rain on his parade mate?..

Spot on sa90.

23 May 2018 06:47:30
Actually, in a perverse way, if we are offering Silva a 5-6 year contract it is reassuring to me. The fact thaton how they rate him Everton/ Moshiri, who have just recently been stung by Koeman for 18 months remaining on his contract and by Allardyce for 12 months, have the faith in Silva, who they know far better than any of us, says a lot on how they rate him.

The other thing that should reduce our worries is that Everton/ Moshiri have shown the ruthlessness necessary to get rid of Koeman and Allardyce when they didn't work out

Stop fretting, have faith and start dreaming. Get behind whoever they eventually appoint and enjoy the ride


{Ed025's Note - amen to that bw..
