Think they have a good chance of staying up with a small margin (their squad is good enough for 13-17th) but they need to bring in someone who gives the players a confidence boost through the experience of dealing with these things in the past. No time to become Brighton, they need some Allardyce/Dyche character on a 6 month contract. Chris Hughton would also be a great choice if they could get him.

I think Dyche would work out better than Hughton. Hughton's stock is not really great after his stint at forest. I know Dyche took Burnley down but he ended up hampered by a lack of support and couldn't get players in he wanted.

Lampard’s managerial career was ruined by Chelsea IMO. Should have stayed in the championship and maybe win a promotion. Clearly not ready for the PL at the moment although he could have been with a different path.
A young manager doesn’t need all that stress he looks about 60 😃

Why would someone put themselves through that for a 6 month contract? No incoming transfers either due to they’ve maxed FFP and are in the financial shit, maybe a loan or two?

Bang average players signed for huge fees and on massive wages.

They deserve to be relegated. Richarlison and Gordon kept them up last season, the former has gone and the later isn’t fit. They need at least 6 wins from their last 18 games. They’re fucked.

don't care, want everton to go down. they have been in the EPL for so long and done relatively nothing of note. They seem to have scrapped around the bottom/mid point for so long that its only fair that a better run club gets a chance to show what they can do.
Saw somewhere yesterday that they were last relegated 72 years ago!! It's about time they experienced it again...

I don't think that it is. Certainly an organsier like Dyche could get Tarkowski and Coady back to some sort of solidity and they have decent midfiled options to play a low block, but they can't break quickly and they don't have players to score goals. DCL had two good seasons when he was managed by Ancelotti and playing with James Rodriguez and Richarlison, but before and after that he averages less goals per year than Maups, who has only one since he arrived there and who has never scored more than 3 in the second half of an EPL season. Neither of them are suited to playing in a team that sits low and counter attacks. They'd be relying a bit on set pieces and they're currently joint third worst on set piece goals this season. Only us and Wolves have scored fewer. They look a bit like we did at the end of Chris Hughton's time, but they haven't had the excellent first half of the season that saved us from the drop that year.
