Whenever a manager gets sacked, rumours are rife about who will replace him.
Some links seem credible, others seem left-field and the rest are just laughable.
Judging by the reaction from a number of Everton fans on Twitter, Phil Neville’s reported interest in the managerial vacancy at Goodison Park falls into the third category.
According to BBC Sport, the 40-year-old, who spent eight years of his playing career with the Toffees after leaving Manchester United, is keen on the role.
Neville has never worked as a manager before, but he has coaching experience having held assistant positions at United and Valencia.
Ryan Giggs, who came through the Red Devils’ academy like Neville, has also thrown his hat into the ring, confirming his interest to Sky Sports.
It is safe to say that a number of Everton fans would not be happy if either player took charge, with many feeling that the team needs an experienced figure at the helm.
Seriously – do Giggs and Neville really think they are contenders for the hot seat at Goodison? Absurd. #EFC

Why would Everton consider appointing Giggs, Neville etc? If we want someone unproven let’s have one of our own – David Unsworth. #EFC

If Phil Neville thinks for 1 second that he'd become Everton's new boss then he's seriously deluded. File under 'absolutely no chance' #EFC

Shows the ego of footballers that Neville & Giggs would even mention themselves as candidates for the Everton job! 🛎🔚s #EFC
