The ink had barely dried on the press release to confirm Roberto Martinez's exit as Everton boss before Frank De Boer was being touted as his replacement.
De Boer is the early bookies favourite after stepping down as Ajax boss on Thursday and he is certainly a popular choice among Toffees' fans.
Everton sack Roberto Martinez, poor timing with one more game to go. Frank de Boer seems like the favourite for the job. Decent.

De Boer's brother, Ronald, touted Frank as an ideal candidate for Goodison Park moments after the news dropped, which excited Everton supporters further.
Not good enough for Everton and the fans! Let's get De Boer and get back to the Everton we all know and love! The one with passion and heart

Think Frank de Boer would be great for Everton, I was personally hoping for Moyes to go back tho. #LFC

Frank De Boer would be a major coup for Everton but im not sure why he would go there. A step down from Ajax.

Although some of them got the wrong De Boer.

The general feeling on Twitter was that the time had come for Martinez to go after a three-year spell that saw results start to dwindle - including just five home league wins this season.
21 - Roberto Martinez won 21 Premier League games in his 1st season in charge at Everton - he won 22 in his next two seasons combined. Fade.

And while most fans were happy to see Martinez leave, there was hardly any bitterness towards him.

Roberto Martinez should of taken the money on offer from bigger clubs years ago. Everton going no where. Shame for him. #Everton

Hope Martinez does well wherever he goes now. Seemed like a decent bloke just out of his depth. Onwards now Everton. Appoint big.

Martinez out. Arguably harsh after a good last season, but Everton have been dire recently, hard to see that changing next year w/ Roberto
