Martinez koeman silva fat Sam Carlo.  Honestly I have 0 faith we will make the right decision.  We haven’t made the right decision since bill appointed moyes.  That was the last good decision.  Was that 2 decades ago?

I'm with you on this, but we must have fatih.

At this point in time I have very little faith in our decision makers, the last 5 years have been horrendous in reality when you look at the money spent, I’m a great believer in the law of averages which means we should get it right sooner or later, shouldn’t we?

It may seem counter intuitive but the longer the hunt goes on, the more optmistic I am. It suggests the powers that be behind the scenes are taking their time and doing everything they can to get this right, which means appointing the right manager for what they feel the long term plan is. I far prefer this silence from the club (and the media blindly throwing out every name they can think of) to panic-appointing someone a week after Carlo's shock resignation. 

Watch me now end up looking like an idiot when the club panic-announce Alan Pardew as manager tomorrow. 

 

My feeling is that it’s taking time because they were taken by surprise. Normally when a manager leaves there is already an inkling if not a short list on who the next appointment will be.

I’m sure that they are on the case but they can’t hang around too long. I’ll support whoever they appoint but given our track record of appointments under Moshiri I’m not optimistic. On the other hand, law of averages says me must be due a decent appointment this time, surely?

I can’t help but think this story is either click bait for the Galatasaray fans, or is being used as part of their presidential elections. 
I doubt it has anything to do with Everton.

I just had a look on Betfair to see how much people really put down on these type of markets. Next Everton manager has seen £10k matched and next Spurs manager has seen £300k.

If you imagine that across all the different bookies and it will be a fair few quid!

Does that mean you will be right about something soon? 😂

If you gave me 50p, I would go with Galtier. 

I just see him being more of a Brands type manager than some of the others.

I'll never understand how it's possible to bet on something that a fair number of people will know the result of before it's public knowledge. Just so open to abuse. Things like TV talent shows and the like the same applies, people must have to have access to voting numbers.

Totally open to abuse but once someone throws big money on it they batten down the hatches. The big money bets are always investigated too.

But anyone with any sense will know that and keep bets small and spread, if a guy who worked for Endemol (for example) put five figures on a Big Brother winner he'd be found out; few phone calls to see mates alright a different matter.

Bookies have it all covered. 
 

If a person wins over £12k from a bookie in one year they are no longer allowed to bet until the next calendar year with that bookie. There’s actually loads of rules to stop people winning big.

Any rules to stop them losing big?

Let's get behind him then... I guess.

Whoever we get, gets my support. I support Everton - I may not want players/managers but while they’re here I want them to succeed.

Silva mk2, or Martinez mk3. Either way, hardly inspiring and not the character needed to get the best out of our current squad. 

That said, he brings Mendes more into the picture which could have big benefits.

It's going to be Nuno, Fabrizio Romano is even breaking it now and he only speaks when something is basically fact. Apparently a verbal agreement was reached between the two parties today, with a formal contract expected to be sent over within the next 48 hours. 

I'm incredibly underwhelmed, but it is what it is. Will get behind him like I would any other Everton manager and shall start to try and see the positives in this appointment.

I’ll be happy if he can get us Ruben Neves from under Arsenals nose. I know you shouldn’t judge by appearance but my main concern would be is he to soft. 

I'd take Pedro Neto personally if we're going to raid Wolves. I think that Neves had a poor season last time out but manages to paper over it because he's got a knack of scoring from 78 yards.

In all fairness to Nuno he acquired some very good players for Wolves from the Portuguese leagues, hopefully he will do the same for us.

Done deal apparently. I'll back him of course, let's see what he can do. If nothing else we can dye his beard white and have him double up as the club Santa at Christmas if he's still here. Happy to have it over and move on to transfer business. I think it's a given that Gomes just got another season in our shirt, but hopefully Nuno will bring in some new blood like he did at Wolves. In...er, Moshiri we trust. Up the blues.

When we were originally linked with him I wasn’t dead against it even though it was underwhelming, now I really am against it. He saw Palace as the better option over us and once they fucked him off he all of a sudden wants to come here? It’s not a desire to be manager of Everton Football Club, so what is it? A chance to line his pockets is top of my list.

He also looked like a very tired man at the end of his Wolves spell and was in need of a break from football, not to jump straight into another job.

I hope I’m wrong but I don’t see him lasting the season and we’ll be on the search for another manager next summer.

Come on you blues though, I’ll be cheering them on as usual!

As a man with a beard that contains more grey than I am comfortable with I can confirm that Nuno is not tired. Its just really hard to not look tired when your beard has betrayed you. It’s like a constant reminder than even on good days your face/hair is trying to make you look old. 
The man is fresh as a teenager after a Sunday morning Hollyoaks!

Sounded more like he heard of the EFC job and fucked off Palace. He basically stopped answering their calls at one point and made more and more demands until Palace gave up.

Apparently he was insisting on his 7-man entourage joining him and Palace were baulking at that because Hodgson left behind some people they want to keep on. Nuno was insisting on only his own staff. Just what I'm reading online, could be wrong of course.

That seems to be the norm now anyway doesn’t it? Managers turning up with all of their own team. I can see why Palace would want a bit of continuity, but would it even work?

We like jobs for the boys so I suppose we’ll find out.

Honestly one of the biggest indicators for me that we're going nowhere will be if Dunc is kept on as assistant manager. If he has designs to ever manage us then he needs to go and be a manager somewhere and show what he can do. The top job at Everton will always be waiting for him if he's successful in his own right. But no more hanging around the dugout doing God knows what other than "being passionate" and "loving the club".

For me the best route he can take is taking an interim role and being made permanent. We change managers so often, I'd imagine if he impressed on his next turn and there were no big names who wanted to manage Everton, he would have a year to show what he can do.

Plus I doubt Ferguson would want to leave Everton under any circumstances.

Don’t forget he holds the board up showing the subs and the amount of injury time to be added on, a very important role in my eyes 😉

If this is going to happen, I will be behind him 100%.
He made a lot of changes at wolves, and this is what our club needs, change.

Not my first choice by any means, but one I will support with everything I have.

COYBs!

For the wrong reasons I hope that’s not the case if he comes here, but it’s probably what is needed a clean start and anyone who has been involved with the first team in a managerial or back room capacity in the last 5 years to be removed.

From all the bullshit names out there, Nuno sits slap bang in the middle for me. You know, not an old dog or relegation fighter but also not one at the top end that has won leagues etc.

So, considering we've finished 7th once in 7 seasons and he got it twice on the bounce with a newly promoted Wolves, well he might not be the exciting big name but he has enough positives.

Like most, it feels just OK. Maybe as fans we need just OK so we don't get carried away with ourselves (not sure that's possible).

We don't know what went on at Wolves, Crystal Palace or anything else. Just hope that if he does come here, it works for more than 12-18months.

I’ll get behind who ever gets the job 100%. If it’s Nuno, hopefully we can get Pedro Neto here because he’s exactly what we need at RM. who we get, hopefully it’s in the next few days and they can get to work on those 3/4 transfers we desperately need.

That's why I don't grow a beard, I can't be betrayed by it! It's got nothing to do with the fact I can't grow one that doesn't look like a mangy hamster has been badly stapled to my face.
