He did ok at Goodison against some of the those clubs and they knew they were in a game then. He took us from the relegation zone to regularly in and around Europe. Yes he got tired towards the end with the limited funds at his disposal and his comments are probably a reflection of that but looking at what he has done for West Ham shows us what we are missing now. Coaching, drive, work ethic, a plan. Ancelotti saying these players just arenít good enough just highlights his experience as a manager or elite players in leagues where they are favourites. He hasnít had a challenging job in that respect since Parma in 1996.
Nah, at Parma he inherited a side who were a success both domestically and in Europe, with an insane amount of talent at his disposal, including Buffon, Cannavaro, Zola, Stoichkov, Thuram, Ze Maria, Dino Baggio, Stanic, Crespo, and Chiesa, so I wouldnít call the job challenging...they were light years ahead of this Everton side.
