Josh Williams has been speaking on the latest edition of the Royal Blue podcast about Everton’s search for a new manager.
Carlo Ancelotti decided earlier this week that he was done with the Toffees and took the Real Madrid job, leaving Everton to soldier on and find someone else.
Brighton & Hove Albion’s Graham Potter has been suggested as a potential candidate due to the job that he has done with the Seagulls in terms of their style of play.
However, Williams isn’t convinced that Potter would be the man for the Toffees.
He said: “I think he would bring some sort of direction certainly an identity, but I think the identity wouldn’t really represent what I feel is Everton as a club and Everton as a team.
“I think he comes across as too nice, and [he could end up] getting chewed up by Goodison Park. I think Everton need just a bit of a different one.”
Do you want Potter to be the next Everton manager?
No, we can do better
Yes, he could be brilliant
TIF Thoughts on Potter…
We think he would be a fantastic appointment for Everton because his Brighton side creates many chances. If he could replicate that and have the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison supplying the finishing touch, the Toffees could be quite a force.
We disagree with Williams’ point on identity because surely the Everton fans want to be entertained.
We think Potter’s style of play would please the Goodison Park faithful, should the Toffees go down that route and appoint Potter.
