500m is a bargin. They have a brand new 52k stadium being constructed and set to be ready in 18 months. They will sell out every week. Perfect for sportswashing.

Bielsa at the beginning of a season would be good but he's got an uphill task ahead of him. Maybe Everton are resigned to being relegated and he would be able to get them back in the Premier League
Yeah. He needs a preseason to drill in his ideas and philosophy. It’s quite similar to replacing Ole with Rangnick, but with bigger risks.

Hasenhuttl and Frank seem like good options if they can get them. Bielsa might need more time to train his players to the standard he'd like and he doesn't seem like an ideal choice with a relegation battle on their hands.

It's really hard to justify buying United for 6b when you can buy Everton for 500m and throw some decent structure at them + a billion in transfer funds.

You'd have to be really impatient billionaire if you're buying United.

I rate Bielsa highly too. I’ll never forget watching his Bilbao team play Utd off the field back in the day. Respect is due- though that’s not to say he’s the right choice at Everton at this point.
It will be a strange combo to be honest. They lack in a lot of things that makes a Bielsa team thrive.

United is a vanity purchase, like a super yacht. Everton will be like a trawler in comparison. Makes sense to buy a trawler for return on investment but no billionaire is gonna do it.

Yeahh but it's a trawler that can eventually become a super yacht so that changes things a bit. Maybe Everton will never have a billion fans world wide but judging by the number of City jerseys I see around, it is possible to build a global following.

No chance of Frank leaving his brilliant project at Brentford to go save Everton from relegation and Hasenhuttl would be a big gamble.

The bottom half in general is terrible this year. It’s an easy year to stay up if you get things right.
Yeah, I'm failing to buy this whole 'Everton are so shite what more could he do???' nonsense. Good managers improve the players they have. Simple. Nobody expect[ed] Lampard or the new manager to get you finishing top table, but you shouldn't be this fecking close to the drop

People are acting like Everton haven’t already been bought by a billionaire!

When Moshiri bought the Ev, I remember Everton fans saying “OMG we are the next PSG here we go!!!!”

Now look at them. Money helps, sure. But if the structure is wrong from top to bottom and you keep hiring managers like Fat Frank, you’re always going to be a bit crap.

Duncan Ferguson looks set to be named the new manager of Forest Green Rovers so there won't be a 3rd caretaker spell at Goodison for him then. The pashun of ''Big Dunc'' would represent a sugar hit for a couple of months to keep them up until the end of the season but it would wear off early next season anyway. Sean Dyche is available but how many Evertonians would want him? Perhaps now is not the time for Everton to think they're above a manager like Dyche. Bielsa needs a pre-season to get his players fit, attuned to his style of play and a summer transfer window to bring in his own players which Everton can't provide at this moment.

I think the problem is that I can't see Dyche accepting a 6 month deal like that or any manager aside from Big Sam and we already fecked him off. :lol:
I think he'd take that. Finishing 5th out of 8 in a mini-league with Tarkowski, McNeil, a better midfield than he ever had at Burnley and some decent players in Calvert-Lewin (target man), Maupay (passable 2nd striker if he doesn't play Iwobi as a 10), Gray is a better version of Gudjonsson, and similar level fullbacks, Mina is great in the air and Coady is smart enough, will seem doable to him and worth the risk of tarnishing his reputation with a relegation. He's won promotion twice so you could give him 18 months even.

I assume he'd ask for a RB, but that feels doable by the deadline, especially with Gordon money coming in.

Not my first choice by any stretch but we will see who we can get for him this window. His transfer activity doesn't fill me with confidence but he did get Cornet and Weghorst in his last window + Defour was an astute signing at the time. Hope he does well and keeps us up. Come on Dyche baby.

I reckon it’s a very good appointment for the relegation fight. He did a good job at Burnley on a tight budget so think he can keep Everton up.

I think Dyche is underwhelming among the Everton supporters. I think theyll go down with him

Bonkers that Bielsa and Dyche where the final two. You can't get two managers further apart in terms of style etc.

I think they're making the right choice though and tbh they should of had this done the day after Frank left. Really think Dyche will do well there if given a bit of backing, the fans get behind them and he gets some time.

It was probably the only common sense appointment out of the rumoured names.

Bielsa and Hassenhutl would have been unbelievable gambles with the composition of that Everton squad. Going man for man with a squad low on morale and quality or playing the latters high intensity football with slow defenders at the back doesn't make much sense when you need to steady the ship and avoid relegation. Ralph used to get hammered quite often due to his style of play.

They should have done it weeks if not months ago, but I would still say Dyche should keep them up with that team. He's kept worse squads up. In my opinion he could go for his trusty 4-4-1-1. Sell Gordon as he's bloody useless, get a body in up front. Try and get Gray and McNeill whipping crosses in and DCL on the pitch with a partner.
