“If he likes to play football then he needs to leave."

Or wait until the board don't sign a new striker and Koeman has to bring him in

Sorry to pick on you in particlular but did you watch his latest press conference (posted in the Spurs match thread).

Koeman talks quite passionately about the side we are building by purchasing quality young additions for the first team. Not saying you are wrong, just that I don't watch any of his pressers and feel a guy that thinks he's just doing a job for two years. I reckon he knows he's got it good with us...

gone by June mate

he won't sign a contact extension and I'd be amazed if Everton keep him to run down his contract after the way we got burned by Moyes doing that

At present, wouldn't be sad if he was. Woss has shown the way forward.

I am a bit sad for watching some of his press conferences but he does seem to get a twinkle in his eye about the team development, I would not be surprised to see him sign an extension if we maintain 7th and get some good cup runs this year.

He won't get as good a gig as us unless he leaves on a high so that could go either way if we finish in the top six/win a trophy.

we're a stepping stone, which is fine as long as he leaves us better than when he came, but let's not kid ourselves that he's looking at anything other than the next step on the ladder to Barcelona.

good luck to him if he gets there, but he's not engaged with the fans, not really had us playing mind-blowing football, and his first season in the cups was awful. 

unless he wins us a cup then all he'll be remembered as in years to come is "Oh yeah, he managed us for a couple of years didn't he?" whenever he's quoted on the Dutch side's chances at a World Cup

if he wins us a cup then he'll rightly be remembered as the manager who helped turn us back into a global power again - because I believe that once we win one trophy, we'll win loads!

I think people are a bit obsessed with him and Barcelona, just because he wants the Barca job doesn't mean he'll get it. I can't see him getting it anytime soon unless he's successful with us or his next club if he leaves.

He's in his mid fifties, been in management for 17-18 years and other than Valverde doesn't really seem to fit in with the age profile of recent Barca managers. He's a Barca legend yet has consistently been over looked for the job in favour of younger, less experienced managers even when he was assistant back in 2000. It would seem that Barca are more willing to take a go on a less experienced manager than someone who is becoming a bit of a journeyman manager. His style of play also doesn't fit in with Barca either.

Oh I don't think he'll get the Barca job in a million years

I'm not him though

Never forget Joe Royle saying "there's a player in there" when asked if Niasse was shite

Not that he'd know about footballers though
