Hi


I have a bit of a struggle guys as my Dad supports the shite, yer i know dont ask how that happened

A comment he made about Moyes got me onto posting this question, he said all efc fans hate Moyes, is it a case of "typical redshite chatting shit" or is there any truth in it

I personaly doubt it but its starts my first thread, :D

No, he's the best manager we've had in 20 years.

If we had a blank chequebook, not sure if he'd be the man but he should (hopefully will happen asap) be given the chance

I don't hate him, far from it. His negative points do piss me off a lot though, I'm hoping that with a bit more time he'll sort them out though.

You tell your dad "Hate" is a very bad word!

He's obviously getting a bit mixed up!.....at the end of last season 2/3 of luckypool fans didn't think too highly of their own manager....results/luck have easde their pain a bit this season.

Their feelings towards their owners!.....MMMMmmmmm, That nasty word HATE!!......Seems to spring to mind again!

My opinion on Moyes is the same as Romey's or similer, he's a good manager who can do things on a shoe string budget other's cant my main concern with Moyes is his negative style of play.

I like him alot. He has his flaws, but so does every other manager. He is the best manager we could hope for really, think of how far he has taken us and the money thats been available to him.

Go along with Arsenal beating Villa but I'd rather stay sixth and have Hull beat City.

Hull are doing brilliantly but will run out of steam at some point and City are far more likely to be challenging for a Euro place (hopefully where we'll be :) ).

Love him. If i'd have known about Mike's willingness to supply Moyes his daughter I would have though twice about taking her virginity. Moyes deserves it more than me. ;)

In any case, Moyes may not be the best tactician, but his ability to take a razor thin side and shape us into a formidable force in the prem takes more than just ability, it takes faith. Moyes believes in Everton, and I believe in Moyes.

Have to agree he is the best manager for us at the moment and he is getting better and better, His tactics sometimes suprise us but all in all his record with us is very good.

David Moyes:

(+) Turned us from relegation strugglers into a top team
(+) Managed to break into the Top 4
(+) Did excellent in Europe last year
(+) Arteta, Cahill, Lescott signed for minimal fee from small clubs
(+) Staff he employs seem to be doing well
(+) Made Goodison Park a fortress

(-) No summer transfers in 2008-2009 season
(-) Poor start to 2008-2009 season
(-) Poor decisions tactic-wise
(-) Slight relegation scare early on
(-) Terrible wrinkles

So, no I don't hate the man, I don't hate many people. Steven Gerrard, Gerard Way, those are people I hate. I don't mind Moyes. I woulden't even go to the point where I dislike the man. I mean, after all look at the positive's that I mentioned and I made that post in a few minutes missing out many that are maybe more important. He's turned us round into a great club. Made Goodison into a fortress and is a really nice guy. I like him. A poor start to 2008-2009 looks to be over. Let's hope it continues.

Except for breaking the club record transfer fee for Fellaini, but i think i can see what you mean. ;)

As much as he looks like Moe from the Simpsons i couldnt ask for a better manager, there isnt anyone who would take the job who could actually do a better job at this moment in time. Certainly such managers as Mourinho etc. would maybe do better but its very highly unlikely someone of that stature would consider us. Im happy with moyes to be here for next 5 years.

If we look at all the managers in the Premiership at the moment we will see just how good Moyes is to us.

-Arsene Wenger
-Martin O'Neill
-Paul Ince
-Gary Megson
-Louis Philip Scolari
-Roy Hodgeson
-Phil Brown
-Rafeal Benitez
-Mark Hughes
-Sir Alex Ferguson
-Gareth Southgate
-Joe Kinnear
-Tony Adams
-Tony Pulis
-Roy Keane
-Harry Redknapp
-Tony Mowbray
-Gianfranco Zola
-Steve Bruce

OK, so there is all the managers in the Premiership (except Moyes) out of that list there is not one manager outside the top 4 that I would like to replace David. Ferguson, Wenger, Scolari and dare I say it Benitez could do a better job here, but is that just down to money? Moyes has taken us from rock botton to confident UEFA challengers and that's something special. If we look at the managers outside the money-men I can see only 2 that I would even consider to be in charge of us. Southgate and Keane are doing well at thier clubs, but I would never put them over Moyes. If anything comes of this little experiment it shows that on paper Moyes is the 5th best manager in the league - so why should we hate him?

Just what kind of medication are you on :huh: ?

The first statement is hugely open to question and I can maybe at a stretch see where you're coming from with Keane (though I disagree completely), but Southgate ffs :o :o . I'm stunned and speechless.

O'Neill's head and shoulders above the rest imo.

I wasn't saying that they should be managed I was just saying who was mediocre and could even come near Moyes in the Premiership. I should have included O'Neill yes, but Southgate and Keane have done well at thier clubs. I mean Sunderland were like us, worse, but similar and since Keane has come along they've done excellent. I'm just saying that Keane, O'Neill and Southgate have done well for themselves as managers, that's all.

keanes walked in and went "oh i know i'll just sign as many players as i can and see what happens" he is doing shite this season. O'neil is the best by far, buys young english talent and it works brilliantly for them. Moyes is around level parring with o'neill imo but is by far ahead of everyone else (except top 4 managers)

Moysie is top drawer. People have short memories. Before he came we were relegation candidates every year. Now we are the club everybody forgets about when they are talking about who can break into the top four, but ultimately we are there or there abouts every year but one. I agree this years summer transfer business was a fuck up but i dont think that was Moyes fault. Moyes knows to get players in early like he did when we got Lescott, Johnson etc and how much it benefits everybody and he wouldnt have wanted to leave it to the last day. Tactically i think he is very astute and most of the time his substitutions pay off the only minor gripe i would have is he needs to drop Arteta once in a while................

Can be deceptive though Bill...

How about a run of eleven league games made up of two wins, three draws and six losses...

....conceding sixteen goals and scoring only four along the way.

That would make a pretty poor top flight manager yes?

Relegation form for sure.

Sack him? A lot of people wanted to :) .




Everton's last eleven league games of 1983 :P .

I dont hate him but I've come to the same conclusion as some other Evertonians that he's probably taken us as far as he can.

I do think he NEEDS a better number 2 than Steve Round though. Someone with a bit of tactical nouse would be nice.
And preferably someone whose experience is in midfield or attacking.
Moyes was a defender and so was Round. PLEASE get someone in who can tell us what to do when going forward and stop this lumping the ball forward.

Good call, I like Phil Brown too. He is doing a great job with Hull and sounds like a top bloke too (and not a wrinkle in sight at the moment!) :-)

I'd be unsure what to expect of Hull. They're doing a great job now but could easily become the new Wigan Athletic.

Make a fantastic start to thier season and keep it up, coming to the final in the league cup and doing a superb job, finishing in the top half of the table and then have 3-4 unsuccessful seasons fighting relegation and getting little support. I will be hoping that this dosen't happen to Hull but it could easily happen. Wish them all the best, undecided on how good Brown is at the moment.

For a club like Hull, becoming the new Wigan is a good thing.
A team, a small team!, coming from the Championship and survining in the Premiership is a good achievement. I am sure Hull would like to follow the relative success of Wigan.

i disagree with the "as far as he can take us" bit more money moyes would break the top 4. Its going to happen again soon, just if it will stay broken, arsenal are now the weak link into the top 4 where as it has been liverpool for a few seasons, they have improved alot. Arsenal as some of their results have show are beatable even with a fully fit squad. With the right money, the right signings moyes can do it, done it with little money and i think he can do it with abit of money. just if we actually get the moolar.
As for steve round, i can see what your saying but im more than happy giving the man a chance, it does seem that since he came to the club we havent been the same everton like last season where we had irvine then a few coachs helping out. But having said that since ive got my everton tattoo we havent been the same. could be round, tattoo could be cursed, either way give us a chance to improve and we will be back to where we belong.
