Paper Round: Thomas Tuchel, Carlo Ancelotti, Sean Dyche – Everton’s big decision
Tuesday’s Paper Round proves the difficult task Everton have to replace Ronald Koeman, with five names gracing five different newspapers.
Tuchel tops Everton wishlist
But hang on…
‘Now get Dyche’
Everton eye Ancelotti
Giggsy wants Toffees job
Unsworth eyes role
Paper Round’s view: The Everton job is an attractive prospect.
For Tuchel, he could well see this as an opportunity to announce himself to the Premier League, and let’s face it, unless he sinks the club further into the relegation mire, the German has the relatively simple task of steering the Toffees back up the table. Given their squad, that should be no issue, but it’s easier said than done.
For Dyche, it’s more difficult, particularly with Burnley flying high in eighth. It would certainly be interesting to see what Dyche is capable with a bigger budget and higher expectations.

For Ancelotti – no chance, surely?
For Giggs, it’s difficult to see the Welshman being offered a first managerial role at a Premier League club. Of course it has happened before, but it’s a risk Everton won’t likely take.
Finally, for Unsworth – he has the arguably enviable position of proving his worth in the role, and therefore the chance to convince the board that it’s not worth spending the big bucks it would take to lure over Ancelotti. It worked for Craig Shakespeare at Leicester, albeit for under a year, and while Unsworth can take positives from such appointments, the Everton hierarchy may look at Shakespeare’s dismissal as evidence that all does not end well when hiring from within.
