Ok, ToffeeWebbers, simple question: would you take Mr Ancelotti at our great club?
Here's a man that simply wins them shiny things that we all crave at L4. With a great European pedigree, having worked for some of the elite clubs around Europe, and he knows the Premier League due to his time at Chelsea.
Personally, for me, I'd have him in a heartbeat. Koeman has showed very little at this point and the "project" doesn't look good, does it? Let's get him in before someone else snaps up this fantastic manager. Over to you, Mr Moshiri!

I'd give him a season at Tranmere first to see if he cuts the mustard.

Everyday of the week I don't think he would come here but we lose nothing in sounding him out.

Whoever takes over then we could play the TW game of "Hang the manager" if he is not top 4 in a year.

It was dire again last night and only got slightly better when he put on Calvert-Lewin as a Number 9. Rooney was in his own half most of the time so we had no outlet.
Last night's excuse is the team were scared to play. Well you send them out what are you telling them?

Do some lines.

The issue is that there's no sign whatsoever that things are going to improve. Even under Moyes or Martinez there was always a faint 'glimmer' of hope tormenting us in the distance. There's nothing with this guy.
We need to get shut now before it's too late.

However, to the other side of your question, do I want Koeman gone yes I do and have been advocating this since the Atalanta debacle. I also have to say I was never a supporter of Koeman in the first instance although I was happy to give him time and support.
I think we need to take a deep breath; promote Unsworth with Duncan Ferguson as his assistant and let him run until the end of the year. In this way this is less of a gamble and if doesn't work out, the club has time to consider its options rather than a knee jerk by appointing Ancelotti even if he would come!

You know something, I believe the Everton job turned Martinez mad. I fear that Koeman was mad before he got here.

But thus being ToffeeWeb, we have comments along the lines of "I'm not sure he's the right answer for us". Or that, at four years older than Koeman, "he's on the downward path".
Not that I think he'd be interested even if we had a vacancy, but seriously?

Ancellotti if I had just got the bullet and someone offered me £6m a year and that squad I think I be having a chat at least.
Regarding the Watford manager interesting interview in today's Times.
