Quote
Almost £70m was spent on Sigurdsson and Davy Klaassen at Koeman’s insistence. Both have made anonymous starts. Rooney, Sigurdsson and Klaassen prefer to operate in a central role and the former manager’s thinking was clouded as he persisted with two, sometimes all three, in his starting lineup with predictably ponderous results.

Koeman admitted only on Friday: “What is the best formation? What is the best striker with Wayne, Sigurdsson, Klaassen? We struggled at the beginning to get the right formation and that makes it difficult. Then not good results and that brings us back to the lack of confidence.” Six weeks and £45m were spent prising the Iceland international from Swansea City.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

And now we probably will have Barkley staying if he's in the new manager's plans.

Bullshit. Koeman has the final say on his team and transfers. A fair few will be down to Walsh, who he will have recommended them to Koeman and got the nod of approval from him, but Klassen and Sigurdsson are clearly Koemans idea.
I'm not going over old ground again but as DoF it's his responsibility. It's him that should be saying NO if he doesn't think it's right, that is his job!

That's am even more damming assessment of Walsh. Your basically saying Koeman took the piss and walked over him regardless

That's a damning assessment of the board for not backing Walsh. All of his authority must stem from the board, it's not enough to just put a guy in place.

could well be right. The things which we have always done wrong are still being done wrong and crazily by the same individuals. The problems at Everton lie much deeper than the manager

Good read, thanks.  They take their time, but get it right.

They've covered it at the time in great detail. This is Andy Hunter's own opinion piece after the dust has settled.

It's the first time we've had this arrangement and we clearly failed to demarcate clear lines of authority (and, for that matter, make sure DoF and manager can work constructively together).  We need to learn from that, and quickly.

I just always think of them as the more reasoned folk!  With politics, too.

So essentially Walsh is just a scout with a Director of Football title and salary?

If he is DoF I assume he will have a big say in the appointment of the next manager.

I'm not outraged by this - he is entitled to have a life.
