Okay, this is slightly provocative, and hypothetical, but going into an international break... why not?
What if Koeman can't get his hundreds of millions of new purchases to gel?
What if we have a new owner who is not a patient man?
What if he looks to change the manager mid-season, as do many of our competitors?
Who is available, and who would you like?
I can't think of anyone better than Koeman at the moment. Do I like his tactics? Sometimes... Do I like the progression that his team is making? Well... kind of, but I would like to see more desire. I am not suggesting we sack him – just wondering what options we have, if Mr Moshiri is a hard-arse, and he seems to be a hard-arse, from an outsider's perspective.

We always have 2 cdms who lets be honest struggle to play a forward pass. Add in 5 defenders and we wonder why we cant get a shot on target!! Then the more baffling thing is he has brought in 3 Number 10s!!! Now I wouldn't have a problem with this but when you consider all three of them are slow and are basically the same type of player it's madness!! Then our record £45 million man is stuck on the wing!!
Koeman seems to not like pace players or dribblers either. Del boy gone. Lukaku gone. Barkley forced out. Mirallas fell out. We are so slow its untrue. I hate saying it look at the RedShite yesterday. Fast direct movement pace power all over the pitch we have slow players who struggle to pass or control the football.
Koeman talks about a high pressure aggressive team. He has been saying this from day 1 yet I haven't seen it have you? And hand on heart I haven't seen this team of his play a full 90 minutes yet!!! Its either 1 half decent then second half shite or vise versa. And how many times does he get the tactics wrong from the start then has to change it at halftime?
For me the man is a fraud. Has won nothing as a gaffer in 10 years plays mind numbing defensive shite and has spent more money then all previous managers at Everton!! Koeman out!

Highly unlikely, but we have seen it before when Joe Royle wanted to sign Tore Andre Flo, and some other Norwegian player who's name I can't remember, so Royle resigned from the job.
If Moshiri is as ambitious as he makes out to be, then expect a couple of exciting signings in the next five days, or at least a high-profile striker on loan!!

I doubt they will, but Koeman needs to realise it's just not good enough - not when he's had £100's of millions.

If any of the ToffeeWebbers who want him gone, can suggest a replacement, please do. My opinion is STICK. Although I was disappointed by the lack of spirit vs Chelsea. But it still early days

I think it is "Watford" level crazy to even consider a manager change 2 league games in but that is the current vogue.
Nobody has the patience to see the long term.
My feeling is I am really unhappy at the quality of our team and purchases Keane and Pickford excepted but I do feel we overpaid there too and I cannot understand for the life of me why our first priority wasnt to get a Lukaku replacement and by that I mean at least equal if not superior.
You cannot improve without better quality players than the opposition and we pale into insignificance compared to the so called top six.
So therefore the only way to make up the difference is in the management and tactics and currently I would not consider changing Koeman who is at least refreshingly honest and as discontented as we are.

A proper review mind, a basically re-apply for your job one not just; How's it goin', Ron? Sound Moshiri anything planned for the summer, I'm off golfing.
Unless it goes all Mike Walker-esque.
Rabbits need to be pulled out of hats smartish... Oh, and the style needs to be sexed up a bit. Not a lot then, but for a 2nd lump of £6M...
