Many Everton fans have been reflecting on ‘what could have been’ had majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri appointed Lucien Favre back in 2016 rather than Ronald Koeman, amid the growing uncertainty over Marco Silva’s future at Goodison Park.

Some Everton fans have now shared that upon reflection they wished Moshiri had targeted Favre instead of Koeman back in 2016, and things may have been very different at Goodison Park had he done so…

Everton have taken just two wins from the opening eight Premier League games of the season, and head into the international break inside the bottom three after losing four on the bounce, in which the Blues scored just twice.

Koeman moved to Everton from Southampton in 2016 as the replacement for Roberto Martinez, after guiding the south coast side to successive seventh and sixth-placed finishes in the Premier League, and winning 44 of 91 games across all competitions (TransferMarkt).

Another candidate for the position was the now-Borussia Dortmund head coach Favre, who claimed in 2016 that he was on Everton’s list of options to replace Martinez before accepting an offer to take charge of OGC Nice (Mirror).

But losing against the Hammers would see that Silva’s record for the term matches that of Koeman at the time of his sacking in October 2017 (BBC), when defeat by Arsenal left Everton in the relegation zone and with two wins from nine league games.

Silva’s record is now bordering on the edge of being unrepairable, and reports have surfaced that Everton’s Director of Football Marcel Brands is lining up Ajax’s Erik ten Hag (90min) as a potential candidate to succeed the Portuguese should the axe fall, while Football Insider claim ex-Blues boss David Moyes could be in the running.
