"Give Our Glorious Club what you gave Everton and you'll achieve the status of an immortal."

MickTheMackem added: "He's turned us down twice. If David Moyes does come, I'm sure he'll be another who is out the door in a season or less. Mr. Short likes doing that."

Edinburghmackem said: "With 3 weeks to go till the season starts and 6 weeks till the end of the transfer window, let`s press to get the business done, say cheerio to Sam and welcome to Moyes who has the PL experience to achieve at least what Sam would have done had he stayed.

"Sam has left the building blocks of a good team behind so I believe Moyes can take it on from there."
