was only a matter of time. sold their only source of goals and bought terribly. performances have been shocking.23rd October 2017 at 1:48 pm #6550
Just saw this, I wonder who they’re thinking about as a replacement? There were already stories about a return for Moyes, possibly not the worst idea but nowhere near the best either…
Big Sam? At least he’ll get them organized and most likely out of danger…23rd October 2017 at 1:49 pm #6551
Ancelotti?23rd October 2017 at 2:00 pm #6552
I though Carlo wanted the rest of the season off? Would have also thought he’d want a slightly more “prestigious” club to be honest…someone with reasonable CL credentials at the very least.

There is Dave Wagner or although very unlikely, Marco Silva.
Cannot see them going for Big Sam. With the money behind them now, they will most likely go after someone who is pretigious or young and up and coming like Wagner and Silva.23rd October 2017 at 2:22 pm #6555
Fair shouts but somehow I don’t think Wagner or Silva are likely to jump ship, especially Wagner. I think they’re going to have to go for an “unemployed” manager to be honest.23rd October 2017 at 2:23 pm #6556
Can Ancelotti really have such high demands anymore? I mean, he’s won an awful lot but he’s also been sacked now by Madrid, Chelsea and Bayern. That Bayern side, in particular, was capable of so much more than they were delivering under him.
I’m struggling to see any club bigger than Everton that would want Ancelotti now. He may need to go to an Everton level team in order to build his reputation back up again.
Moyes did a brilliant job there. While never really challenging, they regularly punched above their weight, always being amongst the lowest spenders in the league and constantly pushing for a CL spot, albeit often falling short. I just can’t see him going back though.
Rafa? Would he?23rd October 2017 at 2:26 pm #6557
Sarri of Napoli has been linked,but I cannot see him leaving this early on!.Mancini @ Zenit too has been linked!.23rd October 2017 at 2:35 pm #6559
Klopp in a few weeks? 😉23rd October 2017 at 3:36 pm #6562
Everton have important fixtures coming up and really can’t afford to lose them. Not surprised.
Meanwhile, Garth Crooks has suggested Ancelotti as Liverpool new boss should Klopp be fired. Although we are sitting pretty in Europe, Liverpool ultimately should be challenging for the league title because we finished 4th last season, and trophyless too.23rd October 2017 at 4:46 pm #6570

Why did Everton sell Lukaku without signing a reasonable replacement?
Not surprised by Koeman’s sacking Everton with the increased investment have ambitious objectives and are currently sitting in the bottom 3.
I don’t think Fenway will sack Klopp they will give him time to sort things out defensively.
Not sure about Carlo for either Everton or Liverpool he’s a bit too nice imo.
Massive mistake if Everton turn to Moyes.23rd October 2017 at 4:51 pm #6571
Am I the only one thinking the Mad Dutchman was trying to build a “Pepe” style of side with lot’s of “false” 9, nine, nine, nein? (See what I did there? 🙂 )
I reckon he was trying to emulate that Barca style by way of putting himself in the shop window… guess that backfired!24th October 2017 at 6:03 pm #6587

Good point Chucky, I also believe RK was vying for the Barca top job with the way he was setting The toffees up to play, it’s just they didn’t have The personnel to implement that.
They need pace in the team yet the only pace came from the youngsters who he has been keeping on the bench!
Was it arrogance or ineptitude?27th October 2017 at 3:26 pm #6711
I know many would point out he tends to only go to the super-rich clubs, but if Ancelotti was targeted and came in, it would be fascinating to see how he’d get on. I disagree somewhat with the Editor above. He was arguably sacked unfairly at Chelsea. I wouldn’t say he was a disaster at Madrid either – politics tends to play a big role in these situations. At Bayern, whilst his record, particularly towards the end looked poor, again I think politics started playing a role as I believe he had started to drop certain players that the board deemed undroppable and the players tend to get their way in the end. Ancelotti tends to win by creating the right spirit in a side but if he comes up against club politics, there’s only one winner.
