First things first, I'm not asking Moyes to quit or anything (in fact I want him to stay with us for a long time to come), I'm just asking a question. Do you think other managers could use Moyes' foundations to take us to greater heights, or would they end up in the same kinds of positions, or even worse?

I personally think a new manager would struggle to get as much out of the players, and we'd do as well at best.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

Depends who it is.

Someone like Hiddink, almost certainly.

Someone like Irvine, probably not.

Nobody that we could afford, Moyes isn't perfect but he does alot more good than bad.

the likes of hiddink etc would want millions to spend.were as if we give moyes that millions he could do the same job i reckon. and the situation we are in now with no money to spend then i dont think anyone would do better than what moyes is doing at the moment

I think it's ridiculous people would consider removing him. I trust Moyesy implicitly.

Yeah I'm sure some more experienced managers could take us higher, the trouble is as already stated, they're the likes of Hiddink, whom we cannot afford.

Moyes does a very good job, and the job at Everton isn't finished yet. I'm hoping the first half of this season was just a blip.

No, I didn't vote because I said it depends who we would get in. A world class manager would get better results than Moyes. He would be tactically more aware and have more balls to go for matches than Moyes does.

idk man, i never thought about it before today.. but after realizing how he just can't beat sky four teams i wonder...

i honestly feel right now if he doesnt get a victory against the remaining sky four, or we get knocked out against sporting, im thinking i want him gone, but that may just be me...

im tired of mediocrity, we cant challenge the best without literally beating them... even once a fucking year

We used to be the top 4 in the 90's regularly even with a shit team. Just seems to be a massive mental block for him.

no world class manager would come to us though in our present situation, (skint) and if we did have a bottomless pit of money i would give it to moyes first cos i think he would build a great team

moyes is perfect for us and our situation for obvious reasons. He's not the best tactician but we're not bayern munich.

I agree with no world class manager would come to us, but I see this poll as being hypothetical. Hiddink in my opinion, would do a better job than Moyes though. I think he would make tactical changes and vary substitutions rather than doing the same thing after 70 minutes every match.

I agree that a World Class Manager may do better but even then I am not certain they could with the constraints Moyes has.  Another Manager might go for top four teams more but I can't see them achieving what Moyes does with the current squad over the course of a season.
