Everton fans here in the Tavern are becoming increasingly impatient with their recent run of poor results.
The Toffees have endured one of their most poor starts to a season in recent times, as they plunge deep down to a relegation spot. For an Everton side that enjoyed the highs of a Europa League finish last season, it looks as if its already on course for a shocker as they look to be on the verge of departure from the Europa League.
However, one man at the forefront of all the blame was Dutch manager Ronald Koeman, after many feel that his choice of tactics and match selection in certain games were not up to scratch. But recent reports from BBC Sport emerged that the former Everton gaffer had been shown the door by the club, as David Unsworth takes charge of the team moving forward.
So with a caretaker manager in charge, there becomes an added importance for the club to secure the services of a permanent manager in a short period of time if they are to progress. One man in particular who appeared at the top of our punters’ collective shortlist was former Red, Brendan Rodgers, as he continues to impress with Scottish giants Celtic after going 60 domestic matches without defeat.
After gaining local rivals Liverpool their highest finish in recent seasons, Everton will be looking to gain the experience and confidence of a man who’s been spending the past 2 years breaking records. Offering a tactically brilliant style of play that allows wingers to push forward and support the striker with the central midfielders controlling the ball, we think this will suit the Everton squad with the personnel at their disposal.
No former Liverpool or Everton coach has ever crossed Stanley Park, though this really could be beneficial for the blue half of Merseyside, considering Rodgers’ work north of the border.
As we all know the Premier League can be full of unexpected twists and turns with the possibility of anyone beating anyone, which makes it all the more important that the Toffees get straight down to work and climb to survival in what has turned into a revival season.
So as their next fixture against title challengers Chelsea approaches at the Bridge, they’ll be looking to produce a strong performance as they aim to keep their only chance of a title alive. However, it doesn’t come much harder for the caretaker manager, as the Premier League champions have been formidable at home.
So Everton fans, is Brendan the right man for the job?
