It seems that with almost every managerial appointment that goes awry at Everton, David Moyes is a certainty to be linked a potential replacement.

The Scotsman left the club in 2013 and has consistently been rumoured to return to Goodison Park, which hasn’t happened as of yet.

Many fans, while reminiscient of the good times under Moyes, would not like to see the former Manchester United manager return to Merseyside.

Some though would consider the former Everton boss in a short-term capacity, as someone who could steady the ship before the next long-term candidate is identified.

Several Everton fans have been discussing online whether there would be a benefit to giving Moyes the job on a temporary basis, replacing Marco Silva and potentially freshening up the squad.

I’ve provided most of my thoughts on this manner of speculation over the previous few stories we have written about Moyes and his potential return.

For me, it is a backward steps and I would agree that it does scream of a very limited ambition to go on and challenge for silverware. He isn’t the man to lead the club forward, and his appointment even in a temporary capacity sends the wrong message.

Would David Moyes be a good short-term appointment while a long-term successor is found?
