Think it will be a surprise one that goes next, Conte, Hussenhatel someone of that ilk, not saying its them but someone that hadn't been linked before

Why would he want to go there?
He has a good gig with no real pressure and is doing wonders.
Depends how ambitious you are and how much you want to challenge yourself. Everton would be a step up but I think he could probably get a bigger job if he is prepared to wait. Alternatively he could, as you say, be very comfortable at Brighton.

It wont be Hassenhuttel. They're not going to sack him now after Southampton have starting winning and scoring when they kept him on after two separate 9-0 thrashings.

genuinely think Everton and toon support would swap managers if they could.
I was thinking that too. Would probably be better for both clubs.

Wayne Rooney clear front runner for the job.
He actually is! I thought this was tongue in cheek

All over the web. Apparently it will be confirmed Monday. Take with pitch of salt.

Cheeky :winker:

Waiting staff are hard to find since you know what so he'll get a job in a nice restaurant with wide gaps between the tables I'm sure...

Thank God we went with Moyes ahead of Rafa!

I knew Benitez would be gone by the end January. They should never of hired him in the first place. Why hire a manager the fans don’t like in the first place? It was always going to get toxic the moment they went on any bad run.

I can definitely see them going for Rooney until at least the end of the season. Or Duncan Ferguson.

Instead of going for ‘razzle dazzle’ managers they’d be better of trying to go for someone like Graham Potter.

It’s hard to imagine Rooney as a manger but to be fair to him, he’s done a very decent job at Derby all things considering.

Docked 21 points at the start and now only 8 behind Reading in 21st place.

Quite agree, though will bigger clubs than Brighton allow someone like Potter the time to grow a decent side?

Have always disliked Everton and glee seeing them in the ****. Would love to see them relegated, but for their sake, they need to abandon their vanity projects in expensive foreign managers still basking in former glories and give the job to Rooney with Duncan Ferguson as his assistant

Rafa to Newcastle?

Howe to Everton?

Although my Everton supporting mate, is convinced Slav will replace the Spanish waiter.

Personally I don’t think so, no. If I was Potter I’d stay at Brighton over joining Everton. Which just about sums up what a mess Everton are.

They must be kicking themselves going for Ancelotti over Moyes nearly 3 years ago.

Their fans all seem to think its still the eighties and their successes 100 odd years ago actually count for anything.

The money theyve wasted in recent years is astonishing.
