Martinez in his long after match statement said everything I wanted to hear. Too often there is a doubt that the people in charge really know what the fans feel. As a "Martinez Out" man I retract that, not on the basis of a good win which it was, but on convincing me that he knows what we are about at Everton. He may not achieve it but he understands it. Good luck to him.
I think he's always bought into Everton and knows what we're about. Right from the start he's tried to immerse himself in the club, had legends at the training ground, their photos on walls and learned all about our history. It was his stubbornness as a manager that was a concern rather than "getting" Everton, his appearance on Monday Night Football really concerned me after trying to give him the benefit of the doubt.
After watching him on Monday the alarm bells really were starting to ring that's why today's performance and his post match comments were even more refreshing, he's shown that he will change and that he and the players were aware that the tempo was too slow and it needed changed, he also said that after last week's game. Now he needs to stick to that and not do what he's done in the past by changing when he has to then for some strange reason go back to the boring, slow possession game.
