Dutchman confirms move to Everton

  Dutchman confirms move to Everton PSV Eindhoven have confirmed Marcel Brands has left the club to join Everton as their new director of football. The Dutchman is expected to take over the position that was held by Steve Walsh. Walsh is expected to leave his post after a terrible set of transfers, which saw Everton spend the best part of £200m on signings that were, on the whole, very disappointing over the past season. Marcel Brands has informed the supervisory board and his colleagues at PSV that he is leaving for Everton, said a statement from PSV. “The technical manager chooses for a new challenge in the Premier League after eight seasons in Eindhoven on June 1.” Brands said: “It is a very difficult decision, but I think this is a good step at the right time. The Premier League is of course a great thing. It is the biggest competition in the world in all respects. I now get the chance to do something in my own way. I am really looking forward to that.” Everton will be looking to get their manager in place and spend well this summer after what has been a disappointing season for the Merseyside club.

It is fair to say that the 2017/18 season was very indifferent for the Merseyside club.

Going into November, the club occupied a relegation spot and had no manager following the sacking of Ronald Koeman.

Sam Allardyce was appointed at the end of that month and he guided them to an eighth-place finish.

However, it still felt like a disappointing season for most Toffees fans. The football they played failed to excite the fans or the board and that led to Allardyce being relieved of his duties earlier today.

Part of the disappointment stems from the big money they spent last summer to try and challenge the top six sides. That failed to happen and with a large turnover of players over the season, expect the same again this summer.

Highly rated scout to leave Everton

  Highly rated scout to leave Everton Everton’s senior recruitment co-ordinator, Lawrence Stewart, is set to leave the club and move to RB Leipzig, reports the Liverpool Echo. The move comes as Marcel Brands plans his overhaul of the scouting team at the club after joining the club last week. Brands replaced Steve Walsh, who was relieved of his duties following what the club thought was a season of major underachievement, despite spending freely. Everton spent over £150 million on transfers last summer, but struggled to maintain a top half position until March. Stewart’s move to Germany may come as a surprise. He joined Liverpool from Manchester City but will now team up with the recently appointed head of recruitment Paul Mitchell, who played a big part in Dele Alli joining Tottenham. There are many others under pressure at Finch Farm. Martyn Glover, the chief scout, faces an uncertain future with him being expected to take a lot of the blame for their failure from signings last year.

Everton part ways with Sam Allardyce .
Everton have confirmed that they have parted ways with manager Sam Allardyce. Whilst Everton’s results may have looked good to neutrals, a large section of the club’s supporters became disenfranchised with the 63-year-old and the style of play that his side produced on a weekly basis. Allardyce only took over at Everton in November after the club sacked Ronald Koeman and whilst he did guide the club away from any possible threat of relegation, the mood around the club had been dour for weeks. After Everton’s defeat to West Ham on the final day of the campaign, Allardyce admitted that he was unsure about his future and reports had indicated that he would leave the club. Those reports were confirmed today and Everton will now begin their search for a new manager, with former Hull City and Watford boss Marco Silva the favourite to replace Allardyce.
