Roberto Martinez has only taken over as Everton manager this summer and he will be hoping to follow some of his illustrious predecessors. But who has been the greatest boss in the history of the Goodison Park club? Sky Sports wants your vote to pick the best from a selection of David Moyes, Howard Kendall, Harry Catterick and Thomas H. McIntosh. Have your say and we will announce the winner in the week commencing 12th August.
David Moyes (2002-2013)
The new Manchester United boss made such a reputation during his time in charge of Everton that he was considered the suitable candidate to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson. Often questioned for having not won a trophy during his 11 years at Goodison Park, Moyes' finest achievement was in signing talented players who became stars, giving Wayne Rooney his first-team chance and in leading the club to a top-four Premier League finish in 2005.
Howard Kendall (1981-1987, 1990-1993 & 1997-1998)
Most fondly remembered at Goodison Park for his first tenure, Kendall won two league titles, the FA Cup and the Cup Winners' Cup between 1981 and 1987. He returned to Everton for a further two spells as manager in 1990 and again in 1997. Kendall was linked with becoming England manager after Bobby Robson but the role went to Graham Taylor.
Harry Catterick (1961-1973)
Catterick managed Everton between 1961 and 1973, winning two First Division titles, two Charity Shields and one FA Cup in that time. He further endeared himself to fans by finishing as runners-up in the 1968 FA Cup final. Catterick's desire to play attacking football along with his fierce rivalry with Liverpool's Bill Shankly also made him popular with Everton supporters.
Thomas H. McIntosh (1919-1935)
McIntosh was famous for being the man who identified the talent and secured the signature of legendary goalscorer Dixie Dean. Under McIntosh's management between 1919 and 1935, Everton also won two First Division titles either side of a Second Division championship. The FA Cup was also secured in 1933 along with two Charity Shields in 1928 and 1932.
