The Everton Forum / Re: Lozano

Sticks in the craw but Liverpool model since Klopp.

Established stars in other half-decent leagues -
firmino, salah
Established stars in smaller teams - mane, VVD, Robertson

All under a certain age, all identified (through data) as having key attributes for the specific system (insane physical gifts, pressing, pace, goals...)


Its definitely the way we should be recruiting to, sound business model really

People forget hes still a relatively young man in general let alone to be a manager at the top level. I think itd be perfectly reasonable and understandable if he felt the pressure of managing one of the biggest teams in a country in his mid 30s. The fact he did it very successfully for a while shouldn't be lost.

It's the times you struggle and fail, you learn the most. He's had a significant amount of success and failure, let's hope he's learned his lessons and will arrive at us at the perfect time to put the struggles behind him. And us.

Hopefully, he would seek to develop young players like Lookman, as a manager/coach, not push them out the door to develop elsewhere. He would be good for the young players, IMO.

I will be very disappointed if Lookman is not given a chance by the new manager

Happy to give Silva a go, but he is very young, and doesn't have a track record of building teams. The last 4 years, he has had 4 different clubs. 2 of these clubs he quit, 2 of them he was sacked, which is a worry.

This is my main worry...

This is an important point - he will hopefully start to find some consistency the older he gets. He is the same age as Eddie Howe, and has been at 2 big European clubs already, and won trophies.

He will also want to settle down after 4 years of upheaval. Lets hope he and Everton can get it right this time.

Yeah but, theyre both young enough to have potential upsides and futures in the game.

Wayne was collared for drink driving some big pair of tits around Cheshire.

Just get rid hes a tit

Edit: this is what my argument has devolved to so quickly

Im not against the move but think we could be doing a typical Everton thing and chucking the baby out with the bath water, if the rumours are true Rooney is off, Baines is off, I suspect Jags wont be too far behind, who will be the leaders in the club, the people that have a real affinity with the club during this transition? We've only really got Coleman left, but then again maybe if Wayne is a bit disruptive when not playing its best for all parties if he goes?

Is 150k that bad when Klasseen and Sandro are both on 100k per week, one is leading goalscorer, huge name in the game, the others have done nothing yet Bill has alluded to the fact they'll both be back to give it another go!

I know most people consider the Greek league to be a bit of a tinpot league and they are probably right, but plenty of top managers have been considered to have failed there. Jardim and Cuper being the biggest names.
Still doesn't mean that Silva will be guaranteed success with us but he did a very good job at Olympiakos. I think they brought in something like 15 new players when he signed so he pretty much rebuilt the team. And he had them playing proper entertaining football. If you ask Olympiakos fans who their favourite manager was he'll be a close 2nd after Valverde. He did leave them under a bit of a cloud, amid rumours that he couldn't handle the pressure though.

Yeah agree, hes still a big profile.

If that 150k can go towards some badly needed quality then frankly Id drive him there.
