After a disastrous opening few months that saw the club and former manager Ronald Koeman spend £145 million on human tractors only to end up in a potential relegation fight, it makes total sense that Everton would be in for a La Liga, Copa del Rey and Europa League-winning manager with two Champions League final appearances.

We just somehow can't imagine that he feels the same.

Although he does love a good fight.

According to a Sky Sports report, the combustible Argentine is owner Farhad Moshiri's first choice to take over from caretaker manager David Unsworth, although it's far more likely that the club will end up with either Sean Dyche from Burnley or Sam Allardyce, a man who eats steak pie for breakfast and just cannot resist a relegation scrap.

Despite the unlikelihood of Simeone choosing to swap night matches in Madrid for the dull skies of Liverpool, his Atletico side are suffering from an uncharacteristic drop in form, eight points off leaders Barcelona with five draws from 11 matches.

Shaky, perhaps, but not quite 15th with Wayne Rooney wheezing around the park shaky.

Just give Big Sam a pint of Echo Falls and he'll be at training the next morning. He'll even bring his own whiteboard and Sharpie.
