Even by Everton’s recent standards, Tuesday was a tumultuous day. It started with Marcelo Bielsa making clear his concerns about the job, continued with Tottenham Hotspur humiliatingly hijacking their move for Villarreal’s Arnaut Danjuma and concluded with Newcastle United trying to argue down a price for Anthony Gordon to over £20m less than he could have been sold for last summer.You could call it a day in the life of the modern Everton, but it is the kind of chaos that is to be expected after almost a decade of dysfunction.People in the game now regularly make the argument that they are the worst-run club in the Premier League.

One industry figure even quipped about how the Bielsa move is just “taking someone else’s good idea from five years ago”.It will admittedly be a coup if they appoint the idiosyncratic Argentine, but as much because of his regular approach to negotiations as his reputation.

Bielsa likes to take his time with job offers in order to assess every aspect of clubs to see if they are ideologically right for him.

The build-up can often “take months”.Everton don’t have that kind of time, especially since they could be in the Championship and facing up to a very difficult financial future in the same period.
