Tuesday’s Toffee Bites: Everton are gonna screw up the manager search, aren’t they?

In today’s news: Justin Kluivert could join the Blues, Vlasic is determined and should Shaqiri come to Goodison?

Sam Allardyce is not the most exciting person to lead Everton into next season. It would be nice to see the Toffees take a chance and hire someone with potential that would represent a promising new era for the club. Is Patrick Vieira that person?

It seems like a bit of a reach. He’s only ever managed the Manchester City reserves and now he’s at the helm of MLS’s New York City FC. He’s done a fine job in those roles, but it’s not like he has so far exceeded expectations that he is an obvious choice.

Everton, think outside the box, but don’t go so far outside that the box is no longer visible.
