Squires with the best Neville Southall you could imagine.

Usual quality from Squires, with extra laughs because it is Everton. Some great little details. Love all the lefty ex players.

Remember when Andy Gray was a few hours from becoming our manager back in the 90s? Was gutted when he decided against it.

He had no intention of becoming our manager, turned us down blaming someone at the club for making his possible appointment public, when in reality he used us to get a hefty payrise from Sky,

I don't think that was entirely true. He'd have been silly not to at least give it some serious thought.

Interesting sentence in that Guardian story:

Ibrahimovic was sold to Juventus in the ensuing mess and, without a striker, Ajax collapsed.

Sounds like history has repeated itself for Koeman.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Sounds about right what Gray said

You either take to an arrogant Colonel style management or you don't ("I'm in charge, you'll do it my way or the highway")

Cloughie was like that, his captain John McGovern quoted "He could speak to me how he wanted and I'd still run through the desert all day for him, but would I socialise and go to a restaurant with him - no way, didn't like the man!"

I don't think any of Harry Catterick's players had a good word to say about him

In the 60s & 70s players didn't have a lot of choice and so responded to it, but now, as Alan Ball once said "How do you motivate a bunch of millionaires?" They can turn their back on a manager without really being hurt

Gotta move with the times, Unsy! It would appear that the Dutch, haven't

Seems to be a common theme with everything that's coming out.

but anyone who said it two weeks ago was pounced upon

Should've sacked him weeks ago after watching tonight's improvement...

A few of us said that...weeks ago, and we're told to wind our necks in. We'd still be in the El for starters.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.
