A name I wanted to throw out there, who hasn’t been mentioned in the media at all and see what fellow Evertonians thoughts were, whether good or bad, would be a possible approach for Joachim Löw as our next Manager.
A long shot maybe, but would you be happy with him taking over the Goodison hot seat after the 2018 World Cup? We could retain David Unsworth for the remainder of this season with a view to Löw taking over the reins once Germany’s campaign has finished.
An immediate downside may well be that he won’t have a full pre-season with the players but Chelsea had the same issue with Conte and that didn’t turn out too bad. He has been away from club management for around 10 years, he is a proven winner, a top coach, and a world-renowned name who would gain instant respect from the players. He would also be a major asset for us when trying to attract highly sort-after players in the transfer market and have the pulling power, with all due respect, that Unsworth won’t have.
For all we know, after 10 years managing his National side, he may well be looking very soon to get back into club management; we could steal a march on our rivals with an early approach before the Premier League manager merry-go-round kicks in later in the season.
Just a thought…

Hmmm... that bit of football lore certainly worked out well for us, didn't it just!
Let's stick with Unsworth. Give him a proper go at it. I feel sure he must have a far better connection to the players we have now, which is what's of prime importance – getting the best out of the existing first-team squad.

He's sitting pretty where he is, for one.
Gotta be 15 years, at least, away from the club management grind and he's 57 years old.

Awkward one that because in our present state we are, and have been for some time, one of the also rans.
So do you want to employ someone to who the pinnacle of their ambition is to manage one of the also rans?
Getting the right manager isn't as straightforward as it may seem.

because the coach/manager/project leader was a BIG NAME?
How many L's in Bollocks?
Give the man til January at least

No. I want someone that sees Everton as more than an also-ran.

I don't envy Moshiri one little bit regarding our next manager. His first choice, Koeman, on a whopping contract, was demonstrably pants in even Moshiri's present opinion and every wannabe Everton manager now knows it. As a consequence £6mill-plus will now be the baseline for any "star" manager.
Does Moshiri have the football perception to identify a less "star-studded", cheaper candidate though, and that's a big call?
Of course he presumably counts his blessings in being able to rely on Kenwright as his "eminence luvvie" to spot the golden nugget hiding on the beach of English managerial mediocrity. Hell, BPB may this time go even further than Preston or Wigan for salvation. All the way to Burnley perhaps, wherever that is.
And that's why I'm depressed.

Been out of club management for ages, nothing like international management.
Was also pretty crap at club management to begin with.
He got the German gig because Klinsmann brought him in as his assistant and then resigned. Been hugely successful with the national side but ironically would not have come close to the job had klinsmann not brought him in.

He had a couple of good results, 20 years ago. He's been out of club management for a long time.
Germany won things in spite of him, not because of him. His selections are poor. His substitutions are terrible. Tactically he's terrible.
His winning formula has been to pick as many Bayern players as he can, in the positions they played, use Dortmund players to fill in the blanks and then go down the list.
It's worked, but it's hardly rocket science. The players never say good things about him and I always got the feeling the german fa want an excuse to sack him.
Could you imagine him picking his arse and sniffing it on the sidelines at Goodison?
