'Ticks every box', 'Best young manager' - Everton fans want this man as new manager
Sam Allardyce’s future at Everton looks to be increasingly precarious with supporters naming who they would like to see overthrow the current regime.
The Blues faithful are distinctly unimpressed with the form their team is showing but more importantly it is the style of play that is giving them a reason to vent.
And following an article in the Guardian which questioned the side’s progression since the arrival of Farhad Moshiri despite the near quarter of a billion pounds spent, supporters were led to comment on who they would like to see in charge at Goodison Park.
It would seem as though the two leading candidates for the role are Shakhtar Donetsk’s Paulo Fonseca and Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe.
The Portuguese manager has improved the Ukrainian club substantially since he took over at the club in 2016 and it was reported only in November that Moshiri had held talks with the former Porto boss and his agent Jorge Mendes.
Meanwhile, Howe is doing wonders on the south coast where despite a meagre budget, he continues to produce a style of play that is fluid and exciting and would be much appreciated by supporters of the Toffees – something they are lacking under the current regime.
Here is what supporters have been saying on Twitter:
Fonseca is the man.Give him time to build a squad instead of expecting us to win the treble in his first season.We want progression yes but we cannot keep chopping and changing managers every 2 minutes.Let see something being built apart from the stadium haha
