Personally I think Moyes has become stale,bored,going through the motions etc.. I love Moyes , I will always be grateful to him for dragging us from relegation candidates to a top 6-8 team season after season. After yesterday's debacle it seems more and more people are starting to feel that Moyes should go and to be honest I do think he should walk now before he tarnishes the good reputation he has with the majority of Everton supporters and the wider footballing world.If he doesn't walk then the board should withdraw the contract offer and put him on gardening leave until his contract ends.
I think its highly unlikely that we will finish 5th or 6th now, but you never know with the blues I suppose. Use Stubbs, Dunc or whoever from the backroom staff for now and start actively looking for the next Everton Manager in the next couple of months, get him in place for the summer , then if Baines and Fellaini do go he will be able to identify his targets and start work on next season.
Good, sensible talking post IMO.
All Evertonians are very gratefull for what Moyesy as done with our great club, from where we was to where we are now, it's a brilliant achievement considering the circumstances and restraints he's had to work under but alot of us now think his ways, tactics and methods are not upto speed with the way football as gone in the past 5 or so years!.
The game as vastly changed and improved due to clubs like Barca. Formations and systems are different, the way the game is played as changed. Teams play with energy and pace, close down and want the ball, want to be on top and most good sides are following that track and replicating it, apart from us!.
Unfortunately Moyesy hasn't caught up with the times and bought into all these new ideas, he's still going with his old school, dated methods and it's showing.
I will never deny the man as been great for us, and we've been great for him, but both us as a club and him as a manager, need to go in a different direction yet again IMO.
