Everton fans here in the Tavern have spent the duration of their day dwelling on the possible return to the Premier League for one man as the managerial race hots up.
Indeed, it’s been an abysmal start to the season for the Toffees as former manager Ronald Koeman heads for the exits. After splashing the cash during the preseason, many had high aspirations for the club which have soon diminished given their recent run of results. As they look to be dumped out of Europe while being sat in the relegation places in the Premier League, it couldn’t have gone much worse for the Merseyside outfit.
However, with Koeman having been dismissed it was time for Bill Kenwright to weigh up some managerial options. In a recent report brought to us by The Telegraph, it hinted that Brendan Rodgers, a man who worked just down the road at bitter rivals Liverpool could be in the running for the job. Having thoroughly impressed at Scottish champions Celtic, Rodgers has been subject to a lot of attention and praise as he takes the Hoops on a domestic 61 game unbeaten run.
However, the landlord has decided to throw up some form of debate, as Toffees fans and pundits pick their brains as they gather different facts and figures, while weighing up the possibility Rodgers taking over at the helm. Having taken a look at what the votes possess, it proved to be quite emphatic as the 70% die hard Everton fans decide against welcoming a former Red despite his outstanding managerial record.
Will The Toffees learn to regret not welcoming one of the hottest topics in football?
Indeed, this did come as a pretty big surprise for us as arguably one of the most successful managers in football of late is turned down by fans who couldn’t be in a much worse position. Having enjoyed the Scottish game, it looks as if Rodgers is set to stay there as the Goodison Park faithful could be set to regret as they opt to miss out on an experienced and valuable man.
So Everton fans, thoughts?
