I agree 7th isnt good enough, im just trying to give some justification and rationale, people say he should change/adapt but rarely any managers do, they stick t what they know.
Finishing 6th with Southampton was pretty successful, although having never won anything as a manager is the clear downfall but has he previously been given the resources to compete?
Regardless of who took over, or who takes over if Koeman is sacked, getting Everton in the top 6 will be a remarkable achievement, unless Moshiri really loosens the purse strings as despite the promises there havent been any indications hes that serious, our transfer windows have been very similar to life under Kenwright with us having a minimal spend or selling our best player to reinvest.

I think we was probably the right appointment at the time as we needed stability and his record seemed to suggest he would offer that. He was also the biggest name in management in our history so it was seen to be a coup on face value.

I just think an awful summer and a lot of poor decisions on and off the pitch have hamstrung him and it's snowballed from there. He doesn't seem to have the ideas or the tactical flexibility to solve it, which is strange from one so experienced. Coupled with his seeming indifference to the plight and his sullen personality and it doesn't really look like the right mix to get us out of it.

Sometimes you just have to admit things aren't working and anything less than a win tonight and it should be time for a change.

I agree with all of the statement in bold.....
i'd question the statement in italics and underlined.... I don't believe he is indifferent to our plight...being a professional this will be hurting him deeply i'd say....he is what he is personality wise...and TBH I tend to think his "dutchness" is somewhat misinterpreted on TV, both body language and his spoken word....

You may be right, its just a personal opinion based on his views on the job at the start and where it sits in his career and his less than enthusiastic persona in general.

It might just be an English thing but we like to see managers hurting and looking as if they are giving a shit. If Im honest, whilst clearly hed like to be doing well, I dont think hes that bothered what he leaves behind when he goes. His management career suggests hes quite detached in that regard.

Is it possible to play two in the position of number 10, one left and one right?

Or does that defeat the object of that position?

Itd help us immensely at the minute if we could play two No 1s.
