Another heavily backed candidate is Celtic's Neil Lennon.
What boosts his cause is his clear success in the SPL, where he's been used to winning with a typically dominant side that have just secured a second title in two years. He's another man with experience of using an excellent scouting network, having landed several bargains over the years.
Lennon also led his unfancied outfit to the last 16 of the Champions League this season, recording memorable wins against Barcelona and Spartak Moscow. He instiled his squad with confidence and belief, enforced effective tactics and his ability to see his underdogs prevail may prove popular at Everton.
Of course, against him is the fact that there is a severe lack of competition in the Scottish League. It stands a millions miles away from the everyday stresses and strains of the Premier League, which Lennon hasn't seen since his playing days.
He is also quite a controversial, confrontational character that, from a distance, appears pretty excessive and greatly contrasts Moyes' general persona.
