    Not having watched Everton over 90 minutes this season, it's hard for me to comprehend what's going on. They have a lot of attacking quality on paper and it seems Silva spent the pre-season working on the defensive side of things, so their defense was arguably the meanest in the league early on. How did it all fall apart?

    It should be Solskjaer, but I really hope its not. I genuinely think hes the worst manager in the league. There is absolutely no chance any club in the league would swap him for their current manager.

    Solskjaer being replaced by Pochettino or Allegri now would be a disaster.

    Well not a disaster, but it would be like dropping your ice cream. Or forgetting the condoms.

    While there were many wringing their hands and gnashing their teeth when Maureen was appointed ("He shits titles", remember), I welcomed the prospect of seeign him fail badly, thereby making both himself & the club a laughing stock.

    Likewise I would welcome the prospect of Pochettino doing the same ... bring it on

    PS - My autocorrect tries to turn Pochettino into an evil right wing dictator from Chile ... its a sign

    I really hope they keep Ole, but I can't see it happening now. He is doing with Man U exact what he did with Cardiff. It is a beauty to watch and his forever shining star is not visible anymore. He is really piss poor and it is lovely to see the pre and post match interviews now. Noone, absolutely noone, believes a word of what he is saying. Even the norwegian experts were slaughtering him on telly yesterday. Brede Hangeland was furious when he heard they lack selfconfidence. He shouted; "So do something about it!!! That is your responsibility!".

    I also don't think a disoriented Poch would be a good signing for them now. He probably should take some time off if he leaves Spurs, only to recharge and find the hunger again. Going straight from Spurs to United now is a tough task. He has been building this spurs team for 5 years or so so suddenly just work with a crap group of desolutioned players with a frustrated fanbase can hardly work.

    They don't actually have a striker. That's probably a major factor

    Poch has a better chance than most at turning Utd around. Hope not.

    The problem with everton is there big spending will catch catch up with them and be a curse for Silva

    They have spent really big money on a load of average players.  They haven't signed any player that makes you think 'wow what a player'  Maybe digne

    He might steady the ship for a bit but end of day the quality of players there are far worst than he's managing at Spurs.

    Maybe, but he'd certainly have more money to spend than at Spurs, and he knows it, plus he'd be able to run rings around Woodward, compared to Levy anyway.

    Why do you want to lose a tenner? If we beat Man U Ole will be out, that is a good bet

    I guess he doesn't want to lose it. I am pretty sure he want to win the bet.

    Silva will be first gone. My evertonian mate went to Burnley on Saturday and said it was the first time the away crowd turned on the manager. Once you’ve lost them, you are doomed.

    That should be more accurate than Pocchetino. You dont fire a man lifting your crap club to a CL final after rebuilding it and making it respected. Are people mad? Who the hell should they bring in?

    I suppose, if really pushed, their fans would say someone like Allegri or maybe even Rodgers, given how well he's done at Leicester so far.

    Their current manager has not done to shabby himself. They applause him as a god a few months ago. He is top of the wanted list at Real Madrid and Man United.If the club doesn't realise that their problems is beyond Pochetino, and start looking at Brendan Rodger or pull the Allergi gamble the good fekin luck.

    But then again this is the club who went for Villas Boas .

    I suspect it's not a case where they don't rate him, but that they feel his heart is already elsewhere and hence the focus is gone.

    I'm just willing it to be Pep after a massive 3 game losing streak.
