The Daily Star suggest that Bill Kenwright is eyeing the 41-year-old following his success in guiding the Welsh side into the Premier League on a relatively modest budget. That would obviously be an important trait to have for life at Goodison where Moyes has had to work on a shoestring budget for years.
talkSPORT have gone a step further, reporting that Everton have approached Cardiff regarding Mackay as they set the wheels in motion to find Moyes's replacement.

Would anyone else be keen Di Matteo? Read the above thread and didn't even think about him. He has proved he can handle the lesser named players at WBA and I think his sacking was extremely harsh. He then goes on to win the Champions League – first point proven! He is free and will be chomping at the bit to prove his worth.

I think the division one playoffs are worth keeping an eye on as whoever doesn't make it out of Zola and poyet may become an option.

Sorry, THEIR acronym?
Think you'll find the childish acronym originated with Moyes supporters, not his detractors.

Gavin, let's just hope you're still laughing after we announce the new manager. I'm not one of those expecting the world to end instantly but you'd be a fool not to be worried by some of the names being mentioned.

It is because he is a Championship manager who has little experience and has not proved himself at this level.
It was different in 2002 the club has moved on since then we have a top 6-8 squad and are looking to progress not stave off relegation.
Everton should be looking at experienced European managers who have won trophies.

Laudrup is another good shout but I've read his buy out is £10m so that effectively rules him out.
Other names I would welcome are Poyet and Montanier

At least we've moved away from childishness though, what with you calling me a 'tool' on an internet forum. Very mature, i'm sure.

Well, what did you expect from Calamity Bill?
He says he will consider our opinions to get a manager to move us forward, and he is considering Steve Bruce?
Well, he can take his Kleenex and his tears and he can follow DM to Old Trafford at once.
The stupid bumbling Idiot.

Looks like it will be Malackey Mackey then folks...why ???....cos he's a carbon copy of Dour Davie (just like Moyes is similar to Ferguson apparently....sorry must have missed all those trophies he's won in the last 11yrs !!!!)...Mackey is a miserable git devoid of personality who started his career at Celtic where he played a few games...(remind you of anyone ??) He then spent the rest of his playing career in the lower divisions in England...(again anyone spring to mind ???) He started off at Watford who were in the shite and won them some games (a la Moyes at Preston) and got them up the table....got the job at Cardiff and won the Championship aka Division 2 ( which to be fair is something Moyes has NEVER done !!)
BTW has anyone noticed the similarity between their style of play...Cardiff are a physical side who hoof it up front as soon as possible to their front man...who runs around like a headless chicken....no passing football style played here I'm afraid...just like Dour Davie in the Everton years !!
So it's my guess that the next Everton manager will be Malakey Makey as recommended by David Moyes....

We need a manager with experience of the top five in a top league.
A Rafa Benitez equivalent.
A young manager with potential..? For me, that would undermine DM's work, iand would be a step backwards.
588 Posted 10/05/2013 at 16:20:43
Can't we show at least a modicum of ambition and look at another business model?
Why not pay Pelligrini £5m a year, and show some fucking vision for once. Offer whatever it takes to get the right man - we were paying Neville £3m ayear FFS!!

The new manager must be someone who has the ability to develop the players skills at every level. Organised and hard to beat are ok but every team needs a level of skill to win football matches on a regular basis.
Given David Moyes shrewdness in the transfer market it is going to be hard to improve upon that area especially from someone who has not yet experienced the PL. But there is more than one way to skin a cat - I'm not advocating this as a pastime children - and we must find somebody who believes in a particular way of playing and someone who has the self-belief to enforce his beliefs on the team and on the club as a whole.

Apparently, it was the Moyesophiles bringing the "childish shite."
This from a grown man who spent the last two years regaling us with 'Gollum, Kenshite, Creasehead & Fat Frank.'
(Liverpool's own Aaron Sorkin).
The IMWT versus MOB debate has run it's course. Moyes landed the top gig in the country....there you go, game over.

The board should be setting the criteria for the type of manager they want and then appointing a recruitment specialist to draw up a list of potential managers.
743 Posted 10/05/2013 at 18:56:10
Do me a favour......
Mind you, interesting how the bookies have changed their stance in the past 24 hours.
Not an inspiring list of candidates.
By default, my vote is for the Porto bloke at the moment though, for all we know, he could be another Ramos....
745 Posted 10/05/2013 at 18:52:14
It could well be Mr McKay the chief screw from porridge.
Anyone know the odds on that one?
748 Posted 10/05/2013 at 19:01:40
761 Posted 10/05/2013 at 18:54:36
If he wins trophies, and it gets debated on here, I doubt the MOB will give him credit; it will be due to either Ferguson... or money. An ironic inversion of the IMWT complaint about him not being given enough financial opportunity at EFC..!
If he fails or gets fired, then as Mike says, it'll be schadenfreude..
Personally, I'm looking forward to the next manager. I think he'll need time to bed-in and create his own team in an initial transitional period of 2-3 years.
765 Posted 10/05/2013 at 19:12:07
I agree,Moyes has left an unbalanced squad behind.
769 Posted 10/05/2013 at 19:18:11
776 Posted 10/05/2013 at 19:11:59
All I see in here is "noooo" and "another Scot".
Just curious? Does anyone know if the guy's any good?
805 Posted 10/05/2013 at 19:41:55
I agree with that too :-)
884 Posted 10/05/2013 at 20:31:04
It sound like asking for all the bad managers to sign for us. We need a recognized name, who has actually won things on the world stage, what has Bilic done as a manager that would make him the perfect candidate for the job?
I cannot give you names, because all the ones I like are managing teams successfully and in europe next year, like I wish we where.
905 Posted 10/05/2013 at 20:12:12
Put his hand in his pocket . Get Michael Laudrup.

Our wage bill isn't that massive, 10th biggest in the PL I think. Don't forget the new SKY deal starting next year and they will be the departures of Neville and Moyes. We can also expect Fellaini and Baines's high wages crossed of the wage bill as well. If we can't do something substantial in the transfer window this summer, they really is no hope

I kind of agree with you but regarding high calibre managers may I remind you that we haven't got a pot to piss in on premier league terms.
Hence the Aldi list of candidates.
With respect to Harrods, we can only window shop I'm afraid.
No obvious British candidate.
First EFC Foreign manager for me.

Freshen the place up with a decent foreign manager.
Trouble is I have fuck all faith in the board to sort it out.

I don't feel Martinez would be able to add anything of substance or for that matter Di Matteo, (don't forget Avram Grant was the width of a post away from winning the Champions League with Chelsea in very similar circumstances to Di Matteo a few seasons ago and we defo wouldn't want him)
I'm not sure about Laudrup, Swansea have played some good football this season but they were one of the worst teams I've seen visit Goodison in a long time this season.
If we are going to go down the route of looking at lower league managers then I would much rather they cast their eyes down to Bournemouth than Cardiff. Eddie Howe has done a fantastic job and they play some cracking football.
Now If we went for Marcelo Bielsa that would get me excited, so excited I reckon me and Mrs C would be in a Delivery room 9 months later but I can't see Kenwright being that adventurous.
Finally there is the great big elephant in the room that is Benitez, and lets be honest taking the Shite out of the equation he would be top of the list by a country mile.
070 Posted 11/05/2013 at 01:20:52
Personally, I like the idea of Di Matteo and others I know have mentioned Slaven Bilic, who should be considered. Vita Pereira would be high on the list, too. But.............. how will BK think this through? Either he's stupid or he's known for some time that this would happen sooner or later and will have had some strategies in place.
Wouldn't be surprised if there was a handshake between Billy and Sir Alex when Moyes came to Goodison 11 years ago. "Eh, Billy, yee can 'ave 'im until I'm ready to throw in the haggis but then he's ours!"
106 Posted 11/05/2013 at 07:19:04
Scottish, plays shite football and is free. Perfect
107 Posted 11/05/2013 at 07:27:59
We want someone who is tactically sophisticated, with someone like this as manager we would already have a head start against the one dimensional teams of the EPL. Remember the School of Science?

Ok he was born in Leeds but he played for Scotland so that should satisfy David Moyes who bizarrely seems to be having a say in who should succeed him.
He appears to be doing ok at Motherwell where presumably there really is a "shoestring budget" situation.
