Now the dust has settled on the Wigan FA Cup disaster we will doubtless hear more of the David Moyes contract saga. Football mainstream media have nothing better to do than stir up "controversy" because it keeps its useless journos and pundits in their vicarious job.
Manufactured lies and rumours will continue to swirl. Will he join Schalke, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, or even a French or Russian club? Nobody seriously expects him to consider the corrupt midden that is Italian football.
He may even decide simply to take an extended break from the game and just see what happens.
But for Everton Football Club and David Moyes himself it is a serious question.
A vast majority of Evertonians would consider his departure a disaster that would set us back ten years or more, though there is a lunatic fringe who hate him - every club has the same sort of never-satisfied malcontent ale house gang. If he does leave he'll find the same sort of mentality at his next stop, wherever it is.
If he hasn't already had an offer he will have to think carefully as to what he does next. There have been many managers who have been flavour of the month and then disappeared to oblivion, though in fact Moyesy has been flavour of the last ten years. If he makes the wrong decision it could finish for good any hopes he may entertain of managing a club with more money than us.
Moreover, he is unlikely anywhere else to have the complete control he has at Goodison Park, and that might not suit his ambition. He stands to lose a lot if he leaves, and don't forget he is already one of the highest paid managers in European football.
Everton took an enormous gamble when they first appointed him as an untried manager. It could easily have backfired. But it didn't. He has been a great success at a time when we badly needed it. He may not have won a trophy yet but he has transformed the club from the relegation candidates betrothed by the Peter Johnson era. Now we are near the top and in constant competition for Europe, a situation we could only have dreamed about before he arrived. It hurts to admit it with our history but we came close to despair before he arrived. So there is reason for mutual gratitude.
But time moves on. Ambition is a restless state of mind, a good friend but a bad master. The question for David Moyes now is: does his reach exceed his grasp? The question for Everton is: who could properly replace him and what affect would it have on progress and stability and would we back to square one or less?
