How embarrassing this is.

Not as embarrassing as what's being served up on the pitch

BTW not advocating a return for Moyes, just acknowledging the cluster fuck that is EFC at the moment
You are my Everton, my only Everton, you make me happy when skies are grey

He had scouts like anyone else, he might have had the final say on who we bought but it's an absolute myth that he personally discovered these players and negotiated the prices. A lot were also bought in a time where you could still get quality for under £5m.
Maybe. But the general attitude around the club lifted when he took over, you cannot argue against the difference in the club before and after he joined.
The scouting was good when you consider the limitations . But he took control, and actually knew the player before he signed. Now it looks if they were bought without anyone actually seeing them or knowing who the fuck they are.
I would love a quality DoF and a manager as well. But would not turn my nose up to moyes in the short term, even working with Unsworth until the positions could be filled with the right people.
I'm the "trophy husband" from the game my wife regrets playing.

Moyes was a fantastic manager when you think of where we were when he took over and how stable we became.  People will always throw back the 'never won anything' line but he got us 4th with Marcus Bent up front ffs.  At the time he was appointed we apparently talked to Gary Megson too... if he'd got the job we'd probably have ended up in League 1!

I wouldn't have him back though, I think we need someone with a more expansive philosophy to move forward.  The idea of Moyes coming back to me just seems another 'let's be stable' type of appointment rather than looking to challenge the big boys.

He'll always have a place in my heart though and I'm pleased to see him doing well at West Ham, I hope he stays there for a while and rebuilds his reputation.

What quality do we have exactly?

Pickford, Keane, Walcott - full England Internationals. Coleman, Baines, Sigurdsson, Bolasie and Rooney, experienced Premier League performers who most of the sides below top 6 would want.

Holgate, Davies, DCL, Kenny represented England at every level up to u20 and in a balanced side with structure, should do better. Ditto, Klaassen, Sandro, Tosun.

We have a good squad, we have just been mismanaged and one thing that’s not going to work, is a manager who chops and changes every week, opts for long ball football and takes no responsibility for poor performance, calling the players what he is, pathetic.

He wasn't sacked

Not technically but kind of got the chance to make the job his and wasn't deemed good enough.
Farhad Moshiri, Alisher Usmanov, Cenk Tosun, Muhamed Besic, Imam Jagne, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Barack Hussein Obama, Confucius... Everton Muslims growing stronger...

Moyes was a class act at Everton but those days are gone and he should never come back. I'd like to see us go for Rudi Garcia at Marseille, quality manager with experience of turning mid table teams unto contenders.

Get Doug Pederson in.

In the summer I presume? Because he's already played for 2 clubs this season...

The Telegraph apparently.

But the Hammers have taken the step of issuing a statement to insist there is no truth in the story.

It read: "The Club would like to place on record that it categorically refutes the claims made by the Daily Telegraph regarding manager David Moyes.

"There is absolutely no truth whatsoever to this story.

"As previously stated on a number of occasions, the Club and David Moyes agreed a deal until the end of the 2017/18 season, at which point both parties will sit down and discuss the future.

"Until then, the Board and David Moyes will continue to work closely together with the Manager having full responsibility of footballing matters and the full support of the Board.

"Everyone’s sole focus is on trying to achieve results for West Ham United."

I think some have a skewed view of how well Moyes has done at West Ham.  The same West Ham who are below us in the league.  The same David Moyes whose career has totally nose dived since he left us.  I want Allardyce gone but I don't want Moyes in.  The past is the past, weve been stale for far too long and we need someone with new ideas who can lift the players and the fans
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!
