With all the rumours that have been flying around about Steve Clarke and various others to be appointed as Moyes number two, it makes me wonder why we are not looking closer to home.
In my opinion, we have an ideal canditate in Dave Watson: he even managed us for a short time in the nineties after Royle's departure, he is an Everton legend due to the years of outstanding service he gave the club as a player, and I think he would instantly command the respect of the players.
He left on good terms at the end of his playing career, loves the club, and too my knowledge is not currently working in the football world.
Of course he may want to enjoy his retirement and may not be interested, but surely he would be worth sounding out...

1. proven track record
2. will have a knowledge tap of all the youngsters and stars Chelsea will have been looking at.
3. Install same winning mentality that Moyes is falling short on.
4. Worked with some top top managers so the experience is there.
To me that will be an improvment as well on Alan Irvine.

Clarke is a very good assistant, claim to be the best if non one of the best in the premiership. He will improve the team no end. Definately an inprovement on a very good assistant in Irvine. A step forward off the field is as good as one on it!
Your points for Watson were all sentimental. It does not make footballing sense and would offer nothing moyes could not accomplish himself. Legend but not good enough to be Evertons assistant manager.
Steve Clarke please!

The game is changing so rapidly these days and has become a "Young Man’s game"
Much as though I love Watto and his father who I used to drink with in Hightown we need somebody who is currently in tune with the modern game.

In truth though i believe whoever Moyes chooses he’ll make the right decision.

Moyes has proved he had got everything organised regarding hard work and solid defensive play.
Adding to the strength of the backroom team with a more forward-looking assistant may make sense.
Not sure who to suggest though. Can anyone help on that?

Who to assist with a more forward looking approach? a difficult one that but I would answer it by saying the actual player signings themselves. If we go for additions in midfield in the form of Van der Vaart, SWP, or Arshavin then you would hope that we will naturally make the transition to a more forward looking side
