Looks like Nigel Pearson has come into being favourite for the Watford job.

Hoop Blah Leicester taking steps to dissuade any interest in Rodgers.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50684861

As mentioned on the Arsenal thread, I'd see someone like Rafa as a good choice for either of Everton (his family still live up there don' they?) or Arsenal.

I'd love for a British manager to get the chance at Arsenal, with Eddie Howe being the obvious option if they were bold enough to go down that route.

I think I said previously that I thought Dyche would be a decent fit for Everton too, but it seems they're more in the market for a foreign coach who will attempt to deliver a more attractive style of play.


As touched upon in the Arsenal thread the other day Eddie Howe's record is not that great and I would have thought that Arsenal's first priority is somebody to sort out the defensive part of the team.
BTW I gather that Howe's record is 7 wins from the last 29 games.

Make that 7 wins out of the last 30 and now one point above the relegation zone.

Indeed. His first game in charge is their trip to Liverpool next week.

Carlo Ancelotti agrees to take over at Everton. What an appointment that is for them!

Bit late to this one but what an exceptional appointment this is. Really goes to show how careless we were in missing out and siding with Bowen when a man of Pearson's calibre was available. They very nearly won the game at Anfield and look like a new team. I am confident of their survival now.

I doubt rather that Liverpool were playing at full steam in that one given their coming schedule though would agree that Watford played well - but then they had nothing to lose.

The test for them will be how they perform in the more standard games. I certainly don’t doubt that NP will make them a much harder side to beat though.

Who are you to question the level of Liverpool's effort and integrity?

The bookies don’t agree, they have them at 1/5 to be relegated, joint favourites with Norwich. I’m with the bookies, can’t see Pearson getting them out of this mess.

In a similar vein to the ingrates at Newcastle who hate Bruce, West Ham fans hate Moyes who dug them out of the shit last time. So don’t want him.

Deludedly entitled thick bastards.

And they’re all racists.

Lolz, if anyone types “ racist”, on any thread, you can be sure the next poster will be Multisync.

He must have it on alert.
