David Moyes

Everton’s former long-term incumbent of the Goodison Park hot-seat, Moyes is the current bookmakers’ favourite for the managerial role on Merseyside.

While I’m sure Bill Kenwright would like to see him back in the dugout, Farhad Moshiri is too astute a businessman to bring back someone who has failed at most of the clubs he has been employed by since he left the Toffees.

Large swathes of the fan base would revolt, and it would scream mediocrity. Everton should, and I think they will, swerve.

Jose Mourinho

Mourinho is the dream candidate for many fans, and for the rich and storied career he has had, who can blame them.

Currently out of a job since being sacked by Manchester United last season, Mourinho wants another job in the Premier League, to which Everton seem most likely to need a replacement.

However, there is a whole debate to be had about whether he would consider accepting a role with the club, and if he did, whether he would be able to succeed in the same way he did for Europe’s elite clubs.

Mikel Arteta

The Spanish magician is another high-ranking fan pick. Currently with Manchester City as Pep Guardiola’s assistant, Arteta has been tipped to have a successful managerial career in the future.

Having previously declared that Everton were in his heart, the former Toffee has been seen by some as the perfect man to build an Everton dynasty alongside his own burgeoning career.

However, his lack of experience will put some off, and for me personally, I just don’t want to end up hating yet another former player for failing to live up to unrealistically high expectations.

Erik ten Hag

Ten Hag is my personal preference if Silva is sacked, and according to certain reports, I might get my wish.

The Ajax boss has impressed with the Amsterdam club, leading them to a surprise Champions League semi-final last season, all the while playing attractive free-flowing football.

Reports claim that he is Moshiri’s primary target if Silva’s tenure continues to sour, and the club also feel confident that they could convince the Dutchman to give the Premier League a try.


Marcelino recently became a free manager after being removed from his position at Valencia, and many fans feel that the Spaniard could do wonders for Everton.

Marcelino performed miracles with both Villarreal and Valencia over the past decade, guiding the former from the Spanish second flight to the Europa League semi-final, and the latter from La Liga struggles to consecutive top four finishes.

The 54-year old was sacked by both clubs after disagreements with ownership, not concerning on-field performances, which has led to fans calling for Everton to give him his Premier League shot.

Eddie Howe

As a boyhood Evertonian and as a manager tipped for greatness, Howe has been linked with the club every time they are on the lookout for a new head coach.

Howe took Bournemouth from nothing to Premier League regulars against all odds, but he has shown with his spell at Burnley that the Cherries could possibly just be the perfect fit for him.

Howe is young and English, and that is enough for some, but many fans believe Everton should be considering managers in the upper echelons.

Rafa Benitez

An obvious divide over Benitez is his time with Liverpool: can you move past that, or is it a sticking point?

For many, the Spaniard would be worth pursing, regardless of his relationship with the Reds. 

He has proven that he has the ability to coach at the very highest level, and given that he is currently in China, it isn’t hard to imagine how easy it would be to tempt him back to England with the right offer.

Sean Dyche

Another man who is consistently linked with the Everton role, Dyche has long been tipped to take a step up from Burnley.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your viewpoint), Dyche seems to enjoy Burnley enough that he isn’t willing to gamble with a new club like Everton.

That may be good news to the ears of many, but there is no doubt that Dyche is a solid and competent manager, who could potentially do wonders with a better squad and a bigger budget.

Marcelo Bielsa

Leeds’ board of directors did a phenomenal job in tempting a manager of Bielsa’s pedigree to the Championship, and having failed to win promotion last season, many expected him to leave Elland Road.

While he is still with the Whites, Everton could tempt the experienced coach with a solid offer.

He has enough quality to succeed in the Premier League, and he would likely welcome the challenge.

Chris Wilder

Wilder was considered to be one of the most talented managers in the Football League last season, and he has taken his Sheffield United side from strength to strength on their return to the top flight.

While it may be tough to convince him to leave after it appears he has settled well at Bramall Lane, the Blades’ financial situation would mean an Everton offer would carry significant weight.

Patrick Vieira

The former Arsenal general was linked as Allardyce’s replacement prior to Silva’s appointment, and instead joined Nice from New York City in 2018.

Vieira was again linked with the Premier League in the summer, this time with Newcastle, and with his Nice side in mid-table in Ligue 1, he could be tempted to return to the Premier League.

Laurent Blanc

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss has been out of managerial work since 2016, and has frequently been tipped to move to the Premier League over the last few years.

While reports have suggested that he is high on Manchester United’s radar to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if he goes, reports have also claimed that the Frenchman is high on Moshiri’s list of targets.

Nicknamed ‘Le President’, Blanc was very successful with PSG, and should the right offer come in for him, he would likely be keen to continue laying down his managerial legacy with the Blues.

Tim Cahill

Finally we have Timmy Cahill, who is a fan favourite option. From Cahill as manager and Arteta as assistant, to the reverse situation, to both as co-managers, many fans simply want the Australian in the Goodison Park dugout in some capacity.

Cahill is currently at Everton doing his coaching badges while working with youth teams, so it wouldn’t take much to promote him up to senior level.

Again, experience becomes an issue, but at the very least Cahill would understand the club and wear his heart on his sleeve, unlike mercenary type managers such as Allardyce.
