A bit of a weird one, but good luck to him.  I'll bet he sleeps like a baby, but with lovely psychedelic football dreams.  He's a fascinating character for sure.

I'm not one for heavily criticising managers, owners or players because with rare exceptions they all try to do their best. So I feel a bit guilty writing this.
Earlier in the evening I had a quick glance at the thread about the Man Unt game and saw one or two comments about Belgium and Martinez  but presumed they were jokes and couldn't be bothered trawling back to see what the joke was about.
I passed some comment to my wife as she was finishing the late milking before collecting the eggs and cooking my meal before she scrubbed the kitchen floor where the chickens had capped and we both laughed at the absurdity of the idea.
I hereby promise never to make a football prediction again.

I know how you feel. To quote Captain Miller from Saving Private Ryan "Things have just taken a turn for the surreal"
“He loved Everton, he loved being back at Goodison Park. He always said it was like going to church.”

I honestly can't think of a manager that has "fallen up" more than Roberto. From a relegated team to a historically big club to managing a top 10 country in the world.

How?

People on here especially do not like to admit it but he is a good manager and he will prove it as Belgium manager and then at some big club after that.

I still maintain that our players let him down as much as anything else.

He's got great potential, but he needs to adapt if he is to realise that potential. His footballing philosophy is commendable, but it is flawed.

But he's not... At all.

A 7 year trend of making the Premier League clubs he's managed worse season after season and he's a good manager? Ok then.

Must be just extremely unlucky with those fine margins ey.

I thought at first someone had done some old thread grave-robbing and revived a quote by you from February 2015.

Fucking hell, mate. Fucking hell.

I will say I like the appointment. Only because it may keep Martinez  away from TV commentator jobs in which he'd yammer his chirpy inanities at us for almost two hours while we were trying to enjoy a good game of football.

Still, I think his true calling is as an infomercial host.

Maybe as an international manager and not working with the players on a daily basis his flawed style may not be as potent.

I mean, surely he can't wreck a defence when he only has them 1 week every few months.

I'm just trying to rationalize how anyone with any common sense could come to the decision of appointing this guy.

Charmed his way into another high profile job.

Can't say he's not talented in some aspects.
