Everton (Fans') Eyes On Dave Jones ?!

Everton (Fans') Eyes On Dave Jones ?!

Vital Cardiff City have heard a great deal recently from disillusioned Everton fans who are disappointed with their poor form and backing a change of manager to restore their pride and lofty Premiership aspirations.

David Moyes has worked wonders for the Toffees and on a small budget. He has endured horrible luck with injuries and lost a top player in Joleon Lescott to Man City over the summer.

It seems inconceivable that Everton would change their manager although anyone associated with the club is disappointed to see Everton in 14th place with 11 points from 9 games. Moyes was regarded as one of the most astute and brightest young managers in the game, and credited with making the Toffees a true force to be reckoned with yet recent grumblings have become more audible and there are now public clamourings for a managerial change. Everton no longer play to their strengths and appear devoid of ideas - a recent thrashing by Benfica was a shock to many.

A popular choice amongst Evertonians to take over from Moyes, is Cardiff City boss Dave Jones. He spent a good chunk of his career as a centre-back with the Toffees and is a Liverpudlian to boot. Everton fans will look at Cardiff City's crippling debt, good football and perennial challenge for promotion via the Championship play-offs.

As a manager Dave Jones has positives and negatives and we are used to seeing him linked with other clubs when we are in good form. West Brom, Celtic and others have publicly courted his services but Jones is settled in South Wales and regularly speak of a job half done with the Bluebirds.

To make this clear - there is absolutely no evidence that Everton will sack Moyes, and even less to suggest anyone connected with the club is considering Dave Jones as a successor. However, if Everton fans want him - they could certainly afford him, while it would also seem a dream job for Dave Jones himself.
