The Everton Forum / Re: [News]Hapless Koeman MUST go
« Last post by brap2 on 3 minutes ago »
I'm still intrigued by the 'has baggage' comment by a supposed 'itk' from the other week.

Mad how many positive things have turned to dust the last few months.

Fully expecting this stadium to never go ahead as well. Part and parcel of supporting this fucking club.

The Everton Forum / Re: [News]Hapless Koeman MUST go

Would people take "bad" wins over a better style of play and current results ?


If Koeman stays I think thats all we can expect at best until January, bad wins. The entire recruitment drive was focused around us acquiring a big centre forward. There were stats that highlighted all of Koemans sides cross the ball into the box more than any other, likewise Sigurdsson has created loads more headed opportunities than anyone else, Klasseen would also thrive off of knock downs etc.

He is stubborn in his failure to adapt to what hes got, but so was Pep when he first came into City, he hasnt changed his philosophy, but the results are coming now as hes got the players to suit his style. Koeman will get the season in my opinion as the board have invested too much into his style, when we get our centre forward, and if results dont change then hes in trouble, but until then itll be a case of making do and ugly wins.

TBH..i'm not even trying to put an argument up....

Don't get me wrong here I've said it before and i'll repeat it again now..I never wanted koeman here in the first place.....ok that's the waiver out of the way...

had a great long conversation with a "colleague" yesterday re our predicament and he came up with some good points of "interest" to think about....this is a man who basically...been there and done that and analyses everything he does down to the colour of his socks....

he broke our season down into...3 bad defeats...spurs, atalanta and Manu...H 0-3, A 3-0, A 4-0.....he mentioned Chelsea away but suggested we wouldn't normally expect to get anything there anyway...

2 home "close" defeats....... where being honest it's not the type of football evertonians expect to see but we were the "better" side in both games.... bmouth and burnley...and probably should have won....

a draw away against the best side in the league...city who have been hammering teams...and I argued we were very lucky not to be hammered ourselves......which he agreed with..but counter argued....and this is where it really  hits home for me...

he said football is a business and a winning business at that... and what people are interested in is results not style of play...it's therefore very fine margins that make the difference......

apart from those games above we've only  lost by a 1 goal margin or drew the game....
we should've beaten bmth, burnley and brighton and apallon.....Obviously we didn't...BUT if we had beaten them he hypothesised....

although the style of play is poor according to fans......would we still be shouting for his head ? He would still be the same manager with his own style of doing things......doing things his way...

He reckons Koeman will turn it around....IF given time....

All a bit irrelevant I know as he clearly stated results are results.....but made me think....and cant make my mind up if he's right or wrong ?

Would people take "bad" wins over a better style of play and current results ?

Don't shoot the messenger......

Too many points to address in that post and the fact I read 'fine margins' made me think of the Martinez era which completely turned me off the whole argument.

We have a DoF that ‘governs’ transfers. Why would Koeman, who had the likes of Pelle and Mane play so well for him, not want players of the same ilk?

Maybe players of the ilk of Pelle and Mane weren't available or interested in coming to Everton.

Frustrating really to have so much young talent on the books and be failing to harness it. Imagine if Pochettino had the amount of potential we have in this squad, he'd have them at their peak physical fitness and motivated to bust a gut and impress.
It's no exaggeration to say we have the most talented group of youngsters in the league, if you add Barkley into that mix as well it's a pretty exciting bunch all in all. You just want to see it harnessed and produce but it's looking unlikely at present.
But Poch has such a solid, balanced team - he can introduce youngsters here and there and they can essentially be ‘carried’. We’re talking about bringing youngsters in who we expect to influence and win us games.

I'm amazed that the people in charge didn't see this coming. Pretty much everyone on this forum was convinced we'd sign an established quality winger and a striker. Not because they were in the know but because not even an idiot would think we could function without them. Instead we fucked about with Sigurdsson. It's beyond inept. We seem to have a habit of appointing managers who do the fucking ridiculous
