The Everton Forum / Re: Should we sack Koeman?
« Last post by nwatson on 5 minutes ago »
what did Koeman do immediately after signing his lucrative contract? He went on holiday. and this was after making us wait to come back from holiday before actually signing it.
Where was Koeman on transfer deadline day? On holiday.  He didnt think that maybe the manager of the club should be here to talk with or welcome any new or potential signings?
Week after Week churning out the same crap, without any evidence that we are actually trying to work on a style of play. The players havent a clue what we are trying to do. We can all see it, hence the want for him to be sacked before things get worse.
The point i made above is more aimed at the board not acting on the situation when the timing was right. They are probable more concerned about having to pay him off and would rather play a waiting game and hope he resigns. I dont think he gives a shit about that. Hes not going to walk away from the stupid contract he was given, and he wont likely be sacked until relegation is staring us in the face.

I like him.

Think he's got all the attributes to be a really good player.

Can always accept criticism of a manager, but I cannot abide accusations that a manager does not give a shit. That is an ignorant and totally unfounded comment. Good bad or indifferent they all care what people say or think of them.

The Everton Forum / Re: Ronald Koeman Appreciation Thread
« Last post by Thomas on 1 hour ago »
Can't say I'm that taken by him, he certainly doesn't engage that well with fans but that's not really something that's important to me. As long as a manager is getting results on the pitch I'm not too bothered what they're like away from it, a connection to the fans and club is an added bonus but right now Koeman's getting neither.

I wouldn't be surprised or too disappointed if he was sacked but I'd rather he turned things around and we got sorted out. A new manager brings all sorts of upheaval, especially if it's someone like Unsworth as a temp until the end of the season. All that means is we don't move forward until the end of the season and can't really plan anything until we know who's going to be the new manager and even if it was Unsworth I can't see him, BK, Moshiri and Elstone having the pulling power for the level of player we'd want.

Even if we appoint a new permanent manager it will bring a lot of upheaval, he'll want his own players in, there will be others here that he won't want so it'll mean another squad overhaul and potentially another 2 or 3 transfer windows to get to that stage. What happens if the next guy ends up where we are now after 18 months?

Probably a bit 'sitting on the fence' there but in short I'd rather he sorted and we have some success as soon as possible but if he sacked then so be it and I can totally see the reasons why, I just hope it doesn't set us back another couple of years.
This basically. Good post.

Moyes had a mare in 03/04 nearly getting us relegated but he learnt from it.

Unless we can get an absolute top class replacement I see no point in giving him the bullet. As long as he simplifies his tactics, learns some lessons about man management and attitude and reverts to 442 and putting a balance side out in their proper positions.

You're very easily pleased.

Could be. Either way, I enjoy watching him try entertaining things. Better than the rest of them trying absolutely nothing. Kid’s a baller.

I want him to turn it around, because I want Everton to succeed. If he goes, I won't lose any sleep over it, but I'd prefer the former.

Read somewhere that Arsenal have won more points off us than any other team in the premier league era.

Can only imagine they’ll be adding to that total come Sunday.

He’s not proven to be £30m worth of defender yet though has he.
