Anyone credible, selected because of their skillset, not because they’re someone’s mate.

Absolutely this. Any appointment might not work out, but I'd like it to look like we at least tried to find the right person for the job.

Spot on.

Show ambition to get promoted with a competent appointment and they'll get backed. (Whether it works out or not doesnt actually matter- football is all about hope).


Appoints Clem/Powers mate on the cheap and its going to turn very toxic very quickly.

Duncan Ferguson for me (shock!)

No boring academy managers whose main objective has been developing players rather than winning games.

Someone who has played / managed / coached at a level where winning was important.

Mate you keep saying this, and I’d fucking kill for Duncan Ferguson. The few games he had at Everton , they looked good, was feeding Calvert Lewis headers for fun, imagine him setting the team up for Austin to score headers/tap ins in the 6 yard box…

But fact is there’s fucking no chance. It’s too ambitious and too good a name. It’s going to be a Yes man, academy coach, who knows someone big, who’s never really managed. All the managers available and they seemingly are coming to a conclusion that Marc cunting Bircham is the best fit.

I keep saying it because it’s who I’d like.

Unrealistic perhaps.
A good choice & exactly what the club need, definitely.

Left Everton to go into management. Hasn’t yet.
Unlikely, yes.
Impossible, I’m gonna live dangerously and say no!

We’ll obviously just have to wait and see

The Cowley brothers would be ideal. If not them then David Artell.

Completely forgot Bircham was a Canadian International.

Someone at worked mentioned his name and said he was getting the job because he’s Charlie Austin’s best mate!!

We’re they even at QPR at the same time?

He was assistant manager for a time that Austin was there.
Austin may have simply told Clem he may be worth having a chat with, nothing wrong with that.

Dave Artell, from the realistic list of potential managers, would be my choice.

Wave 105 (South Coast radio) seem to think Luke Williams is getting that gig and they're not happy about it. "National league to league 1, we're aiming high again"was one comment
