Hansen: Moyes should leave Everton

By on April 16, 2012

David Moyes at WembleyAlan Hansen believes that David Moyes should leave Everton Football Club to further his career, and also to give Everton a chance to move forward.

After the weekend’s defeat to Liverpool, many Everton fans have been left questioning whether Moyes is the man to take Everton to the next level, while also remembering that he has helped the Blues regain a better Premier League position since he joined a decade ago.

Former Liverpool defender Hansen said: “Chelsea are looking for a new manager, Man City could be and if Harry Redknapp gets the England job, Spurs will be looking for a new man. If Redknapp does leave, you would have to suggest Spurs are a real possibility for Moyes.

“After 10 years at Everton, I think it’s inevitable he will leave because there’s a sense he’s taken the club as far as he can.”

    The only person that should be leaving Everton is the owner – he’s the one, with his sling resources, that has taken the club as far as HE can. Lower your asking price Bill, and your so-called high standards for a new owner, and just go please. We might stand a chance of keeping Moyes if we can get some money into the club.

    Mr Hansen is as always trying to stir things up, David Moyes although not a cup winning manager has taken Everton from a relegation probable side to a side that is slowley but surely improving year on year and the fact that we were the opposition in the FA CUP semi final speaks volumes for what Moyes has done with next to nothing.
    Mr Hansen I think wants moyes to leave Everton because without him and without money we would slip backwards and that would suit the ex liverpool biased presenter well.
    David Moyes IS evertons manager and as far as I am concernd he should STAY evertons manager as long as he can, because it will click one day soon and Mr Hansen will eat his words !!!!

    Ha Ha, further his career? Not one offer has ever come in to ‘poor skint’ Everton for his services. Even Celtic in the mickey mouse league never wanted him and to suggest that CL chasing clubs would value a loser who just parks the bus is pure Monty Python. Contrary to what a lot of well paid parasites in the media, like Hansen think, a lot of Evertonians would love him to go! And his defensive coaching staff, negativity and defeatist attitude too. ASAP

    After the comments he and Lawrenson made on Match Of The Day when they assassinated Jelavic, telling the referee to watch for his diving, why should we take any notice of anything he says. I was absolutely disgusted at the pair of them.

    Notwithstanding the recent bitter disappointments Moyes has done a good solid job of rescuing us from regular relegation threats, or a lot worse. Its taken 10 yrs, mostly because of the lack of money, to slowly assemble a decent premiership squad. But whereas once I thought he was the best we could get and we were the best he could get I think that has now changed. I could well see our current squad being attractive to someone like Martinez (contract shortly expiring) or Rogers who could get more from our lads in ways Moyes can’t. In turn we can offer them more than they’re likely to achieve with Wigan or Swansea. So instead of “fearing letting go of nurse for something worse”, now might just be the time for a parting of the ways. However for that to happen Moyes would have to jump as he sure as hell won’t be pushed by Bill. But would Moyes ever be offered better than us to jump? If not then we’ll remain stuck with each other a while longer.

    ITV highlights showed outrageous rugby tackle by Suarez on Heitinga on the edge of EFC box (How did the Uruguayan standard bearer for the art of cheating not get a card of any sort for that ?). Earlier, just a minute or so after EFC scored, there had been a collision of sorts between the two which left Heitinga prone for a couple of minutes, and having to go off for treatment. Anyone know where I can view footage, or shed any light on what happened ?

    Moyes wont leave, ‘Bungalow’ bill will never sack him, he’s picking up 60 grand a week for treading water at goodison.
    Moyes will always play the ‘underdog’ and has no pressure on him to achieve anything at EFC…..he is in a win / win position, as he is NOT expected to bring trophies to goodison, just stay up……
