If I was Rooney I wouldn't be going anywhere near that job.

For him after this season he should be looking at another championship job closer to the promotion teams the Everton job will be around again within 12-24 months and he might have a promotion under his belt. Moving from one dysfunctional club to another one with more pressure doesn't seem like a good career move.

He's seemingly doing quite a good job with that shit show at Derby

Lampard would be worth a watch though

He's dumb enough to think he can do a job there.

Have to wonder if Tactics Tommy Tuchel is in any danger of being pushed towards the big door marked ‘do one’. 11 points out of a possible 27 doesn’t look too clever given the insane quality of their squad.

Lampard has to be odds-on for that.

Sounds like a decent gig for a 70 year old, sacked three months into a two year contract. He must have another 5M+ cheque to look forward to.

What does an already wealthy 70yr old do with another £5m?

Surely for him it can only be a Warnock situation, no clue how to live without football. "Just one more job, if I keep them up I can retire happy".

I've seen him laughing and smiling on the touch line while watching his team lose, he seems to be completely unaffected by it, perhaps the mistake was giving the job to a man who clearly didn't given a hoot, and simply wanted something to do because he was bored?

My concern with the manager merry-go-round this season is how we find a replacement for Bielsa when he does finally decide to leave the UK. The top ten favorites for the Everton job are

Vitor Pereira 1/3 BetVictor
Frank Lampard 6/1 BetVictor
Wayne Rooney 81 BetVictor
Duncan Ferguson 9/1 Betfair
Fabio Cannavaro 25/1 BetVictor
Niko Kovac 25/1 BetVictor
Roberto Martinez 25/1 BetVictor
Graham Potter 33/1 BetVictor
Slaven Bilic 33/1 BetVictor
Paulo Fonseca 33/1 BetVictor

A couple of years ago I'd have said Bilic, but today I think they only manager I'd fancy us signing off that list is Potter, and I think he'll have his eyes on a ESL club when he leaves Brighton.
