First of all, can we please stop saying he got Hull relegated. He didn't. They were already in a very precarious position when he took-over and he made them a much better team.They went down because the chairman refused to spend any money on players and trying to keep them in the premier league was a thankless task. He was doing a great job at Watford before he had his head turned. Granted, it could be worrying at how things capitulated, but when you're managing a team with a history of sacking managers every 12 months, it's understandable that he pushed for the job here. Then look at his work outside the premier league, in portugal and greece. He took Estoril from 10th in the second division, to 4th in the premier league. He then moved onto Lisbon where he won the cup, and was only sacked for not wearing the club suit.He then moved on to Olympiacos where he broke a European record for consecutive wins, getting a very impressive result at the emirates in the process and left with an 80% win ratio. From what I can see he's improved every team he's managed and instilled a mentality and way of playing suited to a team like Everton. Fair enough if people don't rate him, but I do think it's important to do a little bit of research into a managers background before forming an opinion on them. Some of the stuff about him is pretty lazy, especially the comparisons to Martinez and the relegating hull parts. He's ideal for us in my opinion, and everything I want in a new manager.
Just read the top comments on the BBC article about us, the attitude from other fans seems to be that 8th is about all we’re good for and Allardyce did a good job.https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44121983Are we being naive?
And then again last game as well, them needing 3 points at Goodison to stay up
I'm more concerned about this dragging on and becoming a bit of a circus.Maybe Iam being a stress head, but having seen how we've conducted business under Moshiri my concerns are valid.
Tony Cottee being wheeled out as the token Sky Sports Evertonian.He has said:1. Koeman’s ‘total football’ wasn’t enough to appease Everton supporters 2. Silva got Hull relegated and was sacked by Watford.3. Didn’t know a single other Manager linked to Everton, and asked the presenter who was high on the betting.4. Sam was hard done by and Everton were getting relegated without him.Well, with ‘friends’ like that bellend who needs RS enemies.
