“Solid as a Rock” – Pundit’s Assessment of New Everton Boss


Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes that new manager Sean Dyche will “give his all” to the club and insists that Everton are too big a football club to be in the current situation.

Dyche is Everton’s 8th permanent manager of the last 9 years, emphasizing what has been a decade of instability at the club, reflected by the recent and on-going fan protests against the existing regime.

Indeed, the Toffees have hiring and firing roughly every 18 months under Farhad Moshiri’s tenure, and former Manchester United full-back Neville believes that Dyche may finally be an appointment that fits.

Neville stated,The daft thing about Everton is they have tried every single type of manager over a number of years.

None of them have really worked in any way shape or form, to be fair, except maybe Carlo Ancelotti.

“The reality of it is that Sean Dyche has good principles, good values, he’s as solid as a rock and I think he’ll give his all to the club like you wouldn’t believe.”

The former Burnley manager takes over with the Toffees 19th in the Premier League with just 3 wins all season, the last of which came in October 2022. Indeed, with just 15 goals scored in the opening 20 league fixtures, it is a worrying time for Everton fans.

It is a dire situation that has been compounded by the club’s unwillingness to recruit a single player throughout the January transfer window, despite receiving a £45 million windfall from Newcastle United for winger Anthony Gordon.

“Let’s see how Sean does, I wish him well,” Neville continued. “I hope Everton improve, as they are too big a football club to be in the position they are in. Let’s hope they can get out of the mess they are in.”
