They've not won in the League since September 25th.

I think there's a chance he wins them the league cup or something but the question is will he survive long enough to do it

It's a strange situation as I love the man so I can't help but wish him well there, it's going to be very weird.
Bump.

So he did actually get off to that good start, unfortunately the bad spell came immediately afterwards and the abuse has well and truly started.

This was all very predictable I'm afraid. It'll be over soon. They're a toxic club and he should have stayed well clear.

I'm still thinking about how poor he was tactically in that game. The formation he played was a disaster and his subs were poor too. I can't work out how he thought that approach would work against us?

I think he's been well and truly left behind as a top class coach, a bit like Mourinho, these days.

It does feel like the game has moved on in recent years, the top managers of 10 years ago do seem to be struggling a bit now.

That said in the case of Benitez maybe we also need to consider the quality of the players he has to work with

With that squad though shouldn't he have been more defensive? There was no way they could go toe-to-toe with us and win. The 4-4-2 was daft, it was never going to work. It went exactly as expected, our fullbacks ripped them apart.

Yeah, i think when McCoist is calling your tactics out in the first 5mins your time is up. Still he's done probably everything he needs to in the game now. More than many can say.

What tactics was he meant to deploy though?! Everton we’re always likely to struggle against us, the form we’re in.

That's not my job

Nah I don't know, make it hard for us to score instead of giving our most dangerous players loads of space to play in?

I was expecting him to be far more defensive to be honest. He's usually a pragmatist that adapts to the opposition.

Very true, but he was at home 4-5-1 or 5-4-1 would have problem gone down a lot worse by the home support.
That said, I do think time has moved on, he,J ose, Ancelotti are starting to look dated these day

Please no. Mourinho is fast becoming like those turds floating in the lower reaches of the PL that never flush. The day the sour prick leaves the English game for good cannot come too soon.

I found it pretty easy to completely ignore him when he was at united and could happily do so again. He'd spend a ton and leave them at least as screwed as they already are

As has been mentioned based on the source it is almost certainly BS, but assuming it wasn't he's not a long term solution to sort their team out, he would waste a load of money and they would be no better off. There would be a media circus following him which would be annoying, but there would almost certainly be some of their fans saying that he would take them to the top and we'd have to put up with all his nonsense again on and off the pitch.

Agree with all of that. It’s the attention of the English press that he’s missing IMO. He’s proved that he’s irrelevant now & only a fool would bank roll him to improve a club.

I would love all that, would make it all the sweater, when we beat them… the part about the fans thinking he’ll take them to the top- it’s the hope that kills you, it would only make them extra bitter when they realize they’re still a mid table team, at best!

The danger here being that the concentrated nouveau sourness of Mourinho and the ancient curdled sourness of the fans combine to to form a new strain of mega-fume that could threaten humanity on a global scale.

It would be great to see them go down but if they lose too many games too quickly they could get rid of Benitez. 22 January they play Villa at home so would be Rafa v Stevie in the dugout at Goodison which would have heads falling off all over the shop. Dilemma

To be honest, it would do Everton a world of good if they got relegated & spend a few years in the wilderness just to get their shit in order & come back up a better club just like Leeds did

Or better still do a Sunderland & go into free fall, make a mini series showing how bitter they are & how bad the owners are, drop another division & then remain there for years & years.

I'm always amazed when I look at league one how many former PL clubs are down there, Sunderland are the biggest but also the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Bolton, Wigan, Portsmouth, Ipswich, Charlton all had fairly long spells in the PL
