Rafa is the best option by a good distance in my opinion
Experienced, innovator, very good tactician, will stick around until we are at BM and can maximise ability of the squad.
The last thing we need is Nuno - we will turn into a shop window club with a manager who has shown he struggles to change a game, tactically has a plan A and nothing else and is subject to whatever players his agent Mendez tells him to use. There where rumours that Nuno was told he had to give game time to Wolves striker Silva signed for £45 million who is clearly not good enough, Wolves where diabolical to watch last season, Nuno showed no ability to change a game and was shown up for his lack of tactical know how,
I think fans have to realise that if we want Europe then we have to look at what's best for the club. I'm not sure about Benitez, and not because he was at Liverpool but because he's getting towards the end and our location is a cosy job for him. If I thought we'd get 5 years out of him, and that we'd improve massively I'd overlook the red connection but are we just a retirement plan for him?
I think his age and home location make it convenient; I very much doubt it’s an easy retirement touch for him.
He’s often spoke of wanting a project to cement his legacy ; Everton is ideal
I think he would have stayed at Newcastle if the situation was different, so maybe he has the stomach for the task at Everton. I suppose again we have to trust the club on making the right decision. Ancelotti has done us over big time
