Nuno would be a great option for Everton.

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.
100% right. If you actually look at their squad it's full of 2nd raters. Dcl is the only genuine talent

I see it differently, in that they do have a certain level of quality in their squad, but it's either been injured (hardly Benitez's fault) or poorly deployed (definitely his fault).

In short, Allan and Gomes are a decent central two. Between them, Richarlison, DCL, Townsend and Gray offer creative attacking ability, and Pickford is an international.

They should be doing better than quite a few others.

Spanish waiter gets the Spanish Archer.Roberto Martinez will be the next Everton manager . If it wasn’t for Ranieri I’d put some money on him being the next managerial casualty.

If Martinez does end up there then there’s a real chance they’ll end up getting dragged into the relegation battle.

I think they’ll just have enough to be safe, especially after their strong start to the season which they are really lucky for, but what a shock it would be if they went down!

Calvert-Lewin will be back soon alongside Yerry Mina so I can’t see any way they go down. I just find it hilarious how they’ve spent so much money and keep on hiring the wrong manager.

He'll never get it, but Dyche would give Everton the heart and desire they seem to lack, I think he's the closest thing to Moyes they could get.

All about momentum though. DCL is very good, but Gray, Townsend and El Ghazi, who will be supplying him, are Championship level / low on confidence.

I don’t really rate Martinez as a manager but I do think they’ll be safe, which I think will be more to do with the four wins on the bounce (or whatever it was) at the start of the season rather than injured players coming back.

'Crawling out all over the place'? What a thing to say just because some people have a different opinion.
IMO Moyes is, as I've said before a fairly average manager. Probably the right level for this club.
Great managers win multiple trophies. Good managers will win trophies now and again. Average managers never win anything but will not get relegated. Bad managers get sacked regularly and will probably get you relegated. Simplistic but correct I think.

Apparently not! Would be interested to know how many of the signings made when he was last there, are still there.

Martinez is bang average. How he ever got the Belgian job I'll never know, and has repeatedly failed with that team consisting of the likes of Lukaku, KDB, both Hazard's, Vertonghen, Tielmans, Mertens, Coutois & Aderweireld.

Should be getting to at least the final of the Euro's and WC with a team like that.

I bloody well hope not.

It's a shame Norwich, Watford and Burnley are generally so poor, as I'd love to see the Grand Old Team get relegated.

By your bizarre yardstick the likes of Lennon and Strachan are better managers than Moyes.

That said, Moyes has won a few trophies and a lot of individual honours as a manager.

Pickford is an international.
Indeed he is. Which is one reason Southgate is such a mediocre manager.
