Everton: 5 Potential UK Based David Moyes Replacements

    We look at 5 potential replacements for David Moyes should the Everton manager look to pastures new in the summer. We have skipped Michael Laudrup.

    Have a read of our foreign based potentials here:

    Roberto Martinez

    The Spanish tactician turned down Everton’s tainted Merseyside neighbours last year to stay at Wigan.  The former player started his managerial career with one of his former teams Swansea guiding them to promotion to the Championship in his second season in charge, Martinez is often credited with starting the attractive brand of football that Swansea now play in the Premier League.  He left to join Wigan in 2009 and has been there since, keeping them in the Premier League on the lowest budget by any team.  Martinez is seen as an honest and open manager (much like the man he may replace) and working with Evertons budget will be seen as winning the lottery (Bill Kenwright likes this).

    Roberto Di Matteo

    RDM is without a club at the moment having been sacked by Abramovich by Chelsea despite leading the club to the Champions League title and FA Cup after stabilising the club following the AVB reign.  RDM started his managerial career at bastardised franchise club MK Dons, leading them to 3rd in the table before losing in the play offs.  He then joined West Brom after they were relegated from the Premier League.  In his first season he got West Brom promoted back to the EPL before being sacked in the next year.  Di Matteo started as number 2 to AVB and was promoted by the Dark Lord to manager following his departure. RDM is hotly tipped to take over at Leeds United.

    Gus Poyet

    Gus Poyet was a brilliant Premier League player, a foreigner that just seemed to understand the league and the English.  After retiring he worked as a number 2 for a few teams including Swindon and Leeds, working under Dennis Wise.  He then rejoined Spurs working under Juande Ramos.  In November 2009, Poyet joined Brighton & Hove Alboin as manager.  Gaining promotion from league one in 2011, Poyet was voted LMA league one manager of the year.  Poyet has lead Brighton to a chance of promotion to the Premier League this season as Brighton currently sit in 6th with 5 games to go.

    Malky McKay

    Slightly off the beaten track is Malky McKay a former Scotland International defender in the same mould as David Moyes.  McKay is a strong leader and started his managerial career at Watford in 2009 taking over from Brenda Rodgers.  McKay helped to keep a struggling and underfinanced Watford in the Championship before leaving for Welsh club Cardiff City in 2011.  Mckay is poised to lead Cardiff City to the Premier League for the first time in their history as they sit top of the Championship table with 5 games to play, 5 points clear.

    Hawwy Wedknapp

    Wheeler dealer Harry Redknapp is poised to lead QPR into the championship having taken over from idiotic Mark Hughes.  It’s unlikely Redknapp would join Everton for a number of reason, the main one being bags of cash and the second one being it’s up north.  That said, Redknapp would probably welcome the chance to manage a top club once again and could be swayed.  Redknapp has generally done well at the clubs he has been at and will often lead them near the Champions League positions, so the Everton board could see this as a wise choice.  Whether the fans would be so forgiving is another story.  Redknapp likes the media and doesn’t have the integrity that David Moyes has, which is welcomed by the fans.

    1. […] Mackay spent two years at Watford before joining Cardiff two seasons ago. He has one year left on his ­current contract. We at My Everton News don’t believe there are any legs in this story, as why would a man who has one of the best owners in football and is willing to invest to take Cardiff to the next level leave for Everton who are always scrimping and saving. A few weeks ago we suggested Mckay would be a useful option. […]
