Mike Parry wants Sean Dyche to be Everton manager

Mike Parry has vented his fury at the Everton board once again and urged them to consider a move for Burnley manager Sean Dyche.

The Blues fan and former talkSPORT host believes the club need to move away from “exotic” names as they search for Carlo Ancelotti’s successor.

Ancelotti left Merseyside last week to join his former club Real Madrid in Spain.

Writing on his personal Twitter profile, Parry has lended his support for Dyche, who has not been mooted among the frontrunners for the Blues gig.

“He wrote: “Fellow Evertonians, we’re in a desperate state and we shouldn’t be. Everton are a mighty club.

“Could those now in charge stop preening their ownership by appointing managers with exotic continental names and get back to what we’re about.

“I think Sean Dyche would be brilliant.”


Dyche has done a sterling job at Burnley, but we don’t think his arrival would go down well with Blues supporters were he to be given the role as Everton manager.

His reign as Clarets boss has largely consisted of fire-fighting at the bottom end of the table or in the Championship.

They did enjoy one particularly stellar season where they qualified for the Europa League qualifiers, but that was an outlier.

The main issue, however, would be the style of football he employs.

Maybe it’s a necessity at the Lancashire club who spend peanuts compared to their Premier League rivals, but it’s hard to see how he would transition from such a one-dimensional side to being at one of England’s most prestigious clubs.

One of the biggest criticisms under Ancelotti was the pretty turgid style of football we played, particularly towards the back end of the season.

We were also left dismayed by the brand of football employed by Sam Allardyce during his time at Goodison Park, and it’s hard to see how Dyche would be much better than either of those.

Substance is important, but so is style, and we don’t want to be watching dull football after last season’s displays.

Dyche is a good coach, but we think this is the wrong job for him.
