    Long's appointment is met with concerns of the young managers inexperience in management and the premier league by pundits press and the fans. All are willing to give the Mr Long time to prove himself in Goodison hot seat, but all warn he better do it quickly or face the chop. The bookies have made Long the leading candidate in the premier league sack race priced at 4/7 to be first dismissed. In Longs address to press in attendance stated " I am delighted to be here at Everton, A club with such rich history, Passionate fans and success within the premier league. I will continue the foundations of the previous regimes, whilst bringing my own brand of football to the club".

    The first assignment for young manager is to evaluate his squad and make decisions in improving the squad and development of young players.
