Absolutely made up that big Dunc will get at least a game in charge.
He is and always will be my favourite Everton player (well unless we sign someone else who goes around scoring goals and head butting anyone who gets in their way)
Will be interesting to see who is in his starting 11. He always showed courage and fight as a player let's hope he has the conviction to do the same as a manager.

Agree0 Disagree0

Interesting Smitt, can I ask do you think he warrants this opportunity given he has been round x5 managers and still has not lost his jobs? Is he somehow rightly exempt or are his hands as dirty as the other failures?

05 Dec 2019 21:54:39
Smit if big dunc picked me to play I would play my heart out at the thought of getting his abuse after the game lol.

05 Dec 2019 21:55:03
Agree mate.

Or. like Lukaku I would look at him and think. I’ve scored more goals and more premier league than you ever did and I’m 23 years old. ‘Run up my back and go steal a living elsewhere’
By your reckonings Roy Keane, Souness and Mark Hughes would have had the same effect as managers No? .

I've said this before Blu. He has been around since the Moyes days so has been there whilst we finished 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th twice so if he is to be held responsible for the two 11th place finishes then he deserves credit for the other finishes.
He is an everton legend and has outlasted 5 managers so he must have something going for him.

05 Dec 2019 22:19:36
Sorry Smit, on this we will have to disagree. My Everton legends have won titles and didn’t turn up for just x6 games a season. I respect your opinion my friend and whilst he single handedly scared the living day lights out of Liverpool for a good few seasons I don’t think he was kept on as he is doing something right. It smacks more of Sentimental Bill to me.

Rubbish. Alex ferguson wasnt a great footballer, Mourinho wasn't even a footballer but were/ are great managers, they won nothing as players. Did the players look at them and say what have you done a s a player? No.
If you think Dunc doesn't deserve to manage us for one game whilst we search for a manager then that is your opinion, although it is based on absolutely no info on what dunc has done in his day to day job for the last 5 managers.
Moshiri has been our owner for the last 4 management failures, do you want him out too on the same thought process?

05 Dec 2019 22:44:26
Well there’s one thing is certain, he can’t do any worse.

05 Dec 2019 23:02:55
No he does deserve a go, your right for sure. Legend. NO, again my opinion that’s all he played 9 mins in a Cup Final, him, Cahill, Arteta great players but legends nah not for me. (Makes me cringe when they are described as legends as the likes of Southall, Reid et al must be Demi-gods to people who think they are legends.
Do I want Moshiri out, that’s a difficult one for me as the Man pretty much OWNs the club. He is putting the money in (regardless of where it’s coming from) and therefore has the right to do what he wants legally. Dunk is a member of staff on a wage.
Be good if he was a success though of course but I want the whole lot of them gone and a new manager to make huge changes top to bottom to change the culture at my club.

I don't know why we are wasting our time arguing whether Dunc deserves a game or two in charge.

What matters is that, compared to other sides, Everton have handled this process badly and we look like a bunch of idiots. It's not as if it's our first time at this either

How we think we will better attract top managers after this is beyond me.

06 Dec 2019 06:05:01
The manager can't change anything Blu. That should be Brands job and that's the model we have chosen.
Our managers are just coaches and are expected to get the team winning, moyes and others would struggle in that model I suspect.

{Ed025's Note - i think so too smit..

06 Dec 2019 07:11:24
100% Smit, that’s where I wonder if we have the ‘model wrong’ but a lot of teams are adopting that approach it seems. Brands role has never been more significant in choosing a successor (if that truly is our model) ? 👍.

06 Dec 2019 07:18:57
Don't know him personally smit, I hope he inspires. Surprised that the Club appear not to have had someone lined up and instead there is a 4 man short list apparently.

06 Dec 2019 09:17:09
I'm sorry - he's been with the club for years but what does he actually do?
He's not assistant manager (didn't Sammy Lee take the team when Fat Sam swanned off for the weekend that time) , he hasn't any managerial experience, even at U23 level
Apparently he did some extra training with the forwards - no evidence of any success is there?

Please - someone must know what we have been paying him for all these years other than just drinks boy and club ambassador

I liked him as a player but some of the decisions we are making are, putting it mildly, weird.
