Just reading that Ancelotti if appointed will bring his own backroom of 4 or 5 staff including his son Davide, just wondering what would happen to Big Dunc and his involvement with the Team.

{Ed002's Note - It is one of the problems that he has been dragging his son along as assistant manager or assistant coach, and previously as a gym instructor. It is part of the deal to employ him now and has resulted in rubbing a lot of people up the wrong way.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks for the info Ed mate.

{Ed002's Note - To be fair GB, this is what I have just left for Ed025: "Carlo Ancelotti would be a good option for Everton but there are pros and cons to him. Pros - a great coach who players always like. Cons - his son will end up as "assistant manager" if he joins and that will put noses out and raises the issue of nepotism (he was previously a gym instructor with him at a couple of clubs) and players consistently see him as ineffective. The other big con is he doesn't like interferrence and will make that clear if one particular advisor to Moshiri pushes for players he wants. CA does not demand control over transfers in Italy and won't here if he joins - but he doesn't want to be told one thing and then find out it will not be correct. He will also have get out clauses in his contract. But it can be done and Everton would need to honour any agreement - because by then many of the faithful staff could well be long gone."}

Once again Ed many thanks for that, very informative.

You know it wasn’t long ago that everyone was saying we need to clear out the old guard, and that included the big man. Now I don’t know what the guys son is like, but it will be different. Dunc will still be there by all accounts, so will still have some involvement.
Thing is if you employ a top manager then you have to let him do things his way, or what’s the point. And if that means getting rid of the old guard so be it.

This is going to be a whole different ball game Woburn mate and I for one am looking forward to it.

I can't see Kenwright or Moshiri allowing Ferguson to go after what he has done to steady the ship. It will be interesting to see if Ferguson ends up on the bench at matches if and when Ancelotti gets the job.

It doesn't matter who the manager is coming in. If the decision has been to appoint them you don't 'tie' their hands up by trying to dictate who their backroom staff should or should not be.

Assuming we appoint a new manager then it might be better for DF and for Everton long term if he was let go
My biggest hang up about him is his lack of management experience. Maybe he needs to leave to get that experience if he really wants to manage a club.
If he goes and is successful elsewhere it would strengthen his credentials to come back later. No one doubts his love of Everton but he needs more experience.

seen a few reports saying carlo will ahve two assistants, big dunc and his son.

Already said he will keep Big Dunc on his coaching staff. As Ed002 says he (Carlo) brooks no interferance and lists it as a con. I see it as a positive, but just depends if Mr Moshri will clear the trees.
