The news broke out earlier this week that Frank Lampard has been sacked from his position as Everton manager. The Toffees sit in 19th place, and since last season’s heroic escape from relegation, the board fears that this time around, they won’t be able to stage a repeat. The first few candidates shortlisted by Farhad Moshiri were, Marcelo Bielsa and Sean Dyche, with the former being the most likely to take charge in the latest developments.

The feeling is that Sean Dyche is the lead candidate to take over at Goodison Park as negotiations with Marcelo Bielsa, who was the primary target, failed to progress after flying into the UK for talks on Thursday. Dyche has built himself a great reputation with Premier League clubs as a man that does the job and is well-equipped to steady the ship and keep them in the division. Dyche has been out of work since leaving Burnley in April 2022, having been in charge at Turf Moor for almost 10 years. His tenure at Burnley was a successful one considering the low level of investment pumped into the team during that time. The 51-year-old guided Burnley to promotion from the Championship, keeping them in the Premier League for five full seasons on a tight budget.
Everton have not won a Premier League game since late October and are only off the bottom of the table on goal difference after just three league wins all season. So the change has to be drastic if Sean Dyche has to be a successful candidate. The team has some great talents, and money has been splashed, but the return has been minimal. The money spent at Everton compares to that spent by Liverpool, and they are fighting for titles and Champions League titles each season. Everton forked out half a billion pounds since 2016 with very little to show for it. Managers have come and gone, building more on the instability within the club. Since 2016, Everton has appointed 10 managers and currently find themselves searching for another one.
For plenty of Everton fans, the decision to go with Sean Dyche will be welcomed as Englishman is highly regarded as one of the best to steer them clear of the relegation zone. What do you think; do you see this as a sensible decision? Will Sean Dyche be a success at Everton? Will Everton avoid the drop with Sean Dyche as manager?
