    Everton can't realistically attract trophy winning managers though, can they?

    Big Sam is about right for them. Too many big up Everton around here simply because they won a league title or two back in the 80s. Or maybe it's because we share the same enemy?

    They've been absolute gash for decades now. They're no bigger or better than an Aston Villa or Forest.

    Sammy Lee could be his assistant. I think some compensation on the way for Crystal Palace too if big Sam becomes Everton manager.

    Martinez vs Big Sam poll

    Martinez is leading. Seriously why are Everton fans deluded? They have nothing in attack.

    Bolasie is back from injury. They laughed at Niasse for a year and then clinged onto some hope he’s their saviour. Lennon isn’t the same player he was at Spurs. Barkley isn’t fit. Calvin Lewis is just a young striker.

    Everton fans should be grateful they have a manager who knows what he’s doing.

    Barkley and Mirallas gone. Niasse, Klaassen, and Sandro will probably be sold this month as well, according to BBC. Big Sam getting rid of previous bosses' purchases.

    They wanted Martinez out asap when things went bad and even laughed at Belgium for hiring him.

    They should try and get Fellaini back, they could do a lot worse, he's shown more in Europe and PL than Klassen has (I know he's only been here 6month in a poor team but it was a strange transfer regardless). They basically are hoping that Cenk Tosun turns out to be worth the price they paid and scores 12-20 goals a season for the next few years, their replacement for Lukaku.

    They need to clear out the deadwood. Williams is absolutely dreadful, Jagielka is past it now and needs to be moved on, they could do with replacing Baines as well as he's not the same player, Coleman is reaching his 30's and is coming back from a serious serious injury, McCarthy career has went down the pan due to injuries, Funes Mori has been out for ages. Mirallas has finally been moved/loaned out.

    The problem is it's hard to get rid of 7/8 players in a short space of time and replace them effectively especially for a club of Everton's size. None of these players above have any sale value so they would be getting pennies for them.
