Everton have appointed former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez as their new manager.

The 61-year-old Spaniard has signed a three-year deal and succeeds Carlo Ancelotti, who resigned in early June to return to Real Madrid.

No-one can ever accuse Rafa of ducking a challenge!

Although placing the 'we know where you live' warning outside the wrong house probably says it all about the more disgruntled bluenoses..

A two-year contract says it all.

Tottenham have eyes on another manager next Summer, who just wasn’t available this…

Patrick Vieira at Crystal Palace is very interesting. He'll either have the same impact Steve Coppell had there all those years ago. Or he won't.

As an aside, now that all the vacancies in the top two tiers have been filled:
  • Only 6 British managers in the top flight (including Brendan Rogers from Northern Ireland and David Moyes from Scotland). 4 Spaniards, 3 Germans, 2 Portuguese and 1 each from Argentina, Australia, Denmark, France and Norway.
  • Much better in the second tier, with 16 British managers (10 from England, and 2 each from Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales). The rest are 2 each from Ireland and Serbia, and 1 each from Australia, France, Portugal and Spain.

Austria not Australia! Might have been an auto-correct. Either that, or it was late and I was tired.

Being pedantic, in the top flight you could swap France for Senegal (the country of Patrick Vieira's birth) and replace one of the Portuguese with Sao Tome & Principe (where Nuno Espirito Santo was born). And both second tier managers from Ireland (Chris Hughton and Mick McCarthy) were born in England.

Steve Cooper is set to leave his position as Swansea City's head coach.

Cooper, 41, has been in charge at the Liberty Stadium since June 2019 and had a year remaining on his contract.
He led Swansea to the Championship play-offs in each of his two seasons in charge, but there had been continued speculation that he could depart after defeat to Brentford at Wembley in May.

Cooper was in the dugout for Swansea's pre-season friendly win at Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night.

I bet the Gas are really happy they appointed Joey Barton, he's definitely keeping them in the headlines and he managed to get them out of League One. 🤔

Well at least if he fails to keep himself from going down then Rovers have a get out of jail card for getting rid of this odious individual.
