Can someone please explain to me why Big Dunc is the right-hand man? Two completely different approaches to playing.
Alongside Koeman, Allardyce and Silva, Ferguson never seemed to do anything except throw the ball for headers during the warm-up. When he took charge for a few games, he got more effort and better results doing it his way. Now he's back sitting alongside a manager who likes to play out from the back and more on the ground.
I think Ancelotti only kept him on because he believes that's what the fans want. I believe the club made the wrong decision bringing Ancelotti in so soon. They should have left Ferguson in charge for longer.
I'm not saying he was the manager for the long-term but now what can his style bring for Ancelotti? It's confusing me so what's it doing for the players? Why is Ferguson still there?

Personally, I think (hope) Clive has it right that they will compliment each other. One with the carrot and the other with the stick. We simply could not recruit a coach with Big Dunc's passion for our badge.

I still think that Ancelotti in the second half saw a opportunity to shake Everton to its foundations. He allowed the players to be fully exposed in that second half. That second half will be etched in the memory of every Everton player and if not it should be.
Those who did not except that their performance was poor, in the dressing room afterwards will find their situation at Everton a lot different.
Ancelotti needed to shake Everton to its foundations, maybe he found a way to do that, earlier than exspected.

The new guy is Benamino "Mino" Fulco. He has an impressive CV. The has been on the backrooms of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Napoli. He has degree in Biology. He is said to have a nutrition background.
Despite this, you have to wonder about the guy, because this is not necessarily the best man for the job, as his impressive CV coincides with Ancelotti's. So why did Ancelotti bring him in, in the first place? The fact that Mino Fulco is married to Katia Ancelotti might give it away, yep, it's Carlo's son-in-law. By the way, she is a good looking girl, and coming with a guaranteed well paid glamourous job, you have to feel extremely jealous of this guy! However, just imagine the look she would give you if you forgot to do your share of the household chores!
Jerome, you'll have seen by now that it is very much Davide Ancelotti who is taking the coaching sessions at Finch Farm. Carlo is operating with Davide and Duncan as assistants, but not necessarily assistant manager as we know it.
