Everton and West Ham fans had a common ground this summer in that they were both demanding big changes at their respective clubs.
Everton have been heavily linked with a new move for former Watford boss Marco Silva but West Ham have acted quickly to bring in former Manchester City and Real Madrid boss Manuel Pellegrini.
The Chilean is famed for his attacking brand of football, something that is a pre-requisite at both Everton and West Ham for supporters.
After sacking the pragmatic Allardyce Everton want someone who can reshape their squad and help the Toffees push for a place among the top six.
And Pellegrini - who won the Premier League and two League Cups in three seasons at the Etihad - would have been perfect for the Goodison Park side.
At 64-years-old and having managed a host of clubs in South America, Spain and most notably to English football fans his title-winning City side, Pellegrini has all the experience needed to take on a project like Everton's.
Pellegrini is nicknamed 'the Engineer' in his native Chile for his ability to fix broken or malfunctioning teams.
His attacking style - which has been on display throughout his career from his River Plate days through to his time building Champions League contending Villareal and Malaga sides - is exactly what Everton fans want to see.
And another key factor which made Pellegrini perfect for the Toffees is his ability to attract top class players.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Kevin De Bruyne, Kaka, Fernandinho and Karim Benzema are just some of the superstar names he has signed over the years.
But it is the impressive captures of the likes of Diego Forlan, Isco and Santi Carzola during his time at smaller clubs which suggests Pellegrini can attract quality players to second tier clubs.
Everton chief Farhad Moshiri has decided to go in a different direction, though, and it will be interesting to see if he lives to regret that decision depending on how Pellegrini's time in East London pans out.
