This appointment merely continues the trend of reactionary managerial appointments of the last few years. After Martinez (himself appointed on the basis of giving the side some "attacking flair") the board decided we needed a "tough" manager to straighten out the defence and give the team some backbone. When that didn't work, you can envisage Bill & Co turning against "fancy European managers" for our predicament. No, what we needed was a good old fashioned English manager in the vein of Moyes.

It's clear we're not going to see a comprehensive appointment policy from this Board anytime soon. It's always going to be one or two factors taken to the extreme, predicated on either panic or excitement. It's frankly amateurish.

Iv never got the "it's not your money why you bothered" shout.

It's pretty simple. The more you pay on A means the less you can spend on B

Depends on who "you" is. I doubt Richard Branson's collection of Caribbean islands meant he had to skimp on that new yacht he took a fancy to.

Wow, what an undignified thing to say from this new manager.

Marco Silva could simply retort that at least he's won a Portuguese Cup and Greek title.

Your turn Sam, what have you won in your 26 year managerial career?

Yes, but Everton aren't interested in winning things, only not being relegated. Moshiri said this himself, that Allardyce will bring "stability".
