    Marco Silva: Everton boss looks set to remain in charge for trip to Leicester

    They have had a pretty straight forward run of games so far this season, this month is as tough as it gets - he is keeping the job because the obvious options don't exist and the club doesn't want to take a risk. Pretty "sad" state of affairs.

    Unsure whether they'd even sack him if the result at Anfield was particularly bad. They'd probably rather hold off till after Chelsea.

    the sooner you accept that Brendan is winning the title over you lot the less you will cry when it happens ;)

    Loads of noise about Santo to Arsenal this evening. Don’t shoot the messenger.

    And Emery moved to odds on favourite today to be the next PL manager to leave.

    Would he really want to step down though? ;)

    Mad bants aside I'm really quite calm about the speculation, it's flattering but he's got a project at Wolves, we're flying in the Europa, we're starting to show our best in the league and he's universally loved... then (with all due respect) there's Arsenal and their publicised issues.

    I think Nuno would be daft right now to leave Wolves for Arsenal.

    He's got a fantastic job at the moment, at a club where there's a real good feeling around the place, the expectation is far lower than at Arsenal and they've probably got similar spending power now.

    If he finishes his job at Wolves in a couple of years, he won't be short of similar offers.

    Think Silva is going to have that tough run of fixtures to save his job, purely because it’d be a bit stupid to give it a new guy in a situation where they’d likely lose their first 3 or 4 games.

    They should just stick Unsworth in again for the time being. He'd get them more fired up than they are now and there wouldn't be any real pressure on him. See if you can nick a couple of results then give a new man the whole January transfer window.

    Well Arsenal love throwing out a red herring so I wouldn’t be surprised if Santo’s name is being used to keep the media away from what we are really doing.

    That said, if it is him, I’m a little ok with it. Obviously there are the concerns about how he sets up when his side is expected to dominate possession but that’s offset by the fact we’d massively improve defensively.

    Away from your previous answers that you'd be glad to see most managers replacing Emery.

    How would you feel about Benitez? under the assumption Emery is gone, so you can put him to the back of your mind - finally.

    Fair enough, interim would be a great move on your parts. But I'd be surprised if he took it when the West Ham job would most certainly be permanent. Imagine they'd act if Arsenal were seen to make a move.

    Benitez doesn't have to prove himself in this country, the same way he did when taking the Chelsea role. And Arsenal aren't a Champions League holder, nor club.

    I don't think he is the sort of manager who would opt to stay in China earning a "massive wedge" over the Premier League for long.

    Maybe so.

    He is however also the sort that honours commitments once the club honours theirs, his sticking by newcastle joke of an owner shows he is even too honourable.

    There is however family to be thought about in that china move as well and that could sway things.

    He's literally only there a half season at this point yeah?
    Their season ends this week but he signed up for 2 more at 12 mil a season or something so I suppose it'd be possible that after this weekend he could become available if really unhappy after his few months there. I'd have no idea of his current thoughts obviously.

    7 games without a win now for Emery, Arsenal's worst run since 1992. Sacked in the morning?

    Emery had the face of somebody who knew it was done. He looked devoid of energy after the first Frankfurt goal.

    People forget how bad our injuries have been so far.

    No excuses for having shit replacements of course but 3 of our 1st team midfielders have been out for 75% of the season approx.

    Reckon well win 2 of the next 4 though.
