Wasn’t this much fuss coz Bruce used to manage Sunderland or the fact he had digs at the club either. 
 

precious fannies

 

And is that more acceptable? Fans of most clubs wouldn't want a manager who was in charge of their fiercest rivals.

How’s no-one seemingly looking at Galtier? Thought he’d be talked about for all these vacancies after leaving Lille. Not heard a peep.

He's off to Nice, it's why he resigned in the first place.

Spurs are getting through the same stage we did after Rafa left, Brucie was what number 10 on the list after big Sam Mark Hughes etc.Theyll have to come looking at Bruce soon with all the praise he gets from pundits

true, I do get it. It’s trashing him as a manager and his achievements that baffles me. Back the man and he’s a winner

Surely people can understand why Everton fans don't want Rafa? Even if they're being petulant about it.


Would they not want Klopp too?


It’s just weird. It’s not like Benitez is a born and bred Liverpool fan, he’s just doing his job.

It's just the blue tinted glasses though isn't it. Some of them will be fine with it I'm sure but he could be the most successful ever manager and it wouldn't matter to many as he was in charge of Liverpool.

Klopp is, or at least was, a lot more likeable than Benitez. Probably seen as more in touch with the modern game also. I still think a lot of Everton fans wouldn't be happy if Klopp was appointed, but certainly not to the same extent as Benitez.

I'm surprised Howe hasn't been as touted around some of the jobs available. Actually feel he'd be a decent fit at Spurs.

Not worthy of the ‘Big 6’, obviously.’

Not a fashionable enough name....if he was Höwedes he probably would be considered. (Copyright Sam Allerdici)

 

Just a symptom of our league...every team wants instant results, so want proven successful managers (us being the exception obviously, and also the massive blindspots some teams have for PFMs...looking at you West Ham/WBA/Crystal Palace), rather than letting younger ones develop to that level.

If Levy wants a manager that gives him no hassle, takes all the pressure off , will accept any player put in front of him and will keep them exactly where they are now, he has to look at Bruce.

Would you take guardiola if he was available in 12 months time?

If Luke or Alex is reading this can I ask you to check with bacon boy that his mobile is fully charged and not on silent?!

 

Considering how good a job he's done here he should be having to hire a PA to handle all the clubs calling.

City aren't our fiercest rivals, and I would be torn. As of now I wouldn't want him or Klopp. While they were at Dortmund and Barcelona I'd have desperately wanted them.

Context though isn't it....don't recall Guardiola ever disparaging Man Utd in any notable fashion. Plus objectively he's very good.

 

We didn't not want Bruce because he was a Sunderland manager. We didn't want him as everyone could see from his entire career that he would be a walking disaster...both from his results and the obviousness of his duplicit nature. Obviously being Sunderland manager didn't help his cause with an element of our fans, but even taking that spell out of his career he was still pretty much completely unwanted.

Why is he more likeable, he comes across as a spoilt bellend, Rafa doesn't.

What is being in touch with the modern game mean?

 

Rafa is as tactical as they come, his style may not be an all out counter pressing style, but footballing philosophies don’t all have to be about attack.

I feel like a lot of you forget what Benitez was like at Liverpool, which is fine as you only started giving him a ton of attention once he became your manager. Far, far from the nicest man in football. :lol:

Never said they did. 

 

Mourinho is as tactical as they come too. 

 

I don't mind Benitez, I really don't, but we're not seriously going to sit here and pretend he plays attractive football are we? 

 

He's more than good enough for the job, but it's clear as day why Everton don't want him.
