Dave Adams, the man appointed as head of coaching at Everton's USM Finch Farm academy, has reportedly left the post with immediate effect after just seven days in the role.

According to MailOnline's Dominic King, Adams was appointed by Dr Peter Vint who left his role as academy director this week.

Am I the only one to suspect something stinks about all this?

Brian, nothing to see here, I think. Martinez had a clean out when he didn't like what the physios and such were telling him and brought his own guys in. Could well be a case of, rinse and repeat for Koeman.

Maybe Ron is more of a 'run them up the sandhills again' type rather than a 'run those stats by me again'.

Brian. You probably are.

Guy who's appointed by other guy, who then leaves club, subsequently either leaves or is asked to leave as the guy who he was going to be working with/for isn't there any more.

What stinks? What's the conspiracy theory of the day?

I could be wrong but didn't Vint's lad have a trial with Everton and then it is decided he'll go to Old Trafford? His Father moves on and then his assistant leaves.

I suppose it depends on who decided who should move where.

We can all speculate on what lies behind this. It may suggest there has been a clash of cultures or it may be Vint has been offered a better opportunity elsewhere.

I doubt Koeman has had anything to do with Vint's departure. The Academy is not under his control. He has enough to do managing the first team squad.

The only thing that seems strange is that he was there only a week... meaning there was no inkling seven days ago that Vint was going, whether jumping or pushed.

I blame O'Neill.

Summat wrong here somewhere!

Just 2 days ago the club announced that Dave Adams was "the standout choice from a list of more than 90 applicants." That suggests a protracted and considered filtering of many candidates before appointing their preferred choice.

The lad can hardly be judged on his performance at the club on one week's work.

I would speculate he must in some way be closely associated with Peter Vint and that is why he has followed him out of the club, but that also doesn't make sense. If the club were considering dismissing Vint as they did, why would they appoint a (possible) ally or appointment of the man in the very week he is shown the door?

All very strange. It might be interesting to keep half an eye on this one to see if Vint and Adams end up working together in the near future.
