What a completely boring appointment this is going to be. Mediocre even. It Reminds me of when we appointed Walter Smith because he had won a mediocre league like the Dutch league. Koeman at Southampton is basically Moyes when he was with us isn't he - he's made Southampton into the plucky old Everton we used to be.
I would of bought a season ticket if we had got Emery, might not bother now. I wanted a manager who could take us into Europe having won a European trophy.
Koeman is a winner. Emery is very much an unknown. He can't even speak English.
With Koeman, we are getting a blend between the good bits of Moyes and the good bits of Martinez. Look at Southampton's goals for and against column for last season for example. Scored as many as us (joint 6th highest scorers), and had the joint 3rd best defence in the league.
He will bring discipline back to the club, as well as being a big name in football.
He is not Moyes, clearly his goals for columns say that. He's not Martinez either as he knows how to set up a defence.
The more I think about it, and analyse who he is, the more I am convinced this is the perfect appointment for where we are right now, and for the future.
I'm very excited for next season if this comes off.
