No-one is turning on him. It’s reasonable to question his impact on the club since his arrival but once you do that it throws up more doubts than answers. Let’s be honest about it.
I was referring to people within the club. How do you attempt to have a full debrief of how and why things have gone wrong when the guy chairing the meeting at the head of the table is a large part of the problem with his decision-making, in a subject matter he knows very little about. This isn't a witch hunt against Moshiri by any means but from the outside looking in it looks like he's following a path many chairman and fans of the game fall into when they get control of a football club for the first time, which is to make hasty decisions on the playing side based on their limited knowledge of the game as a fan.
What a false dawn this guy's reign has been so far! We were a solid if unspectacular club with good foundations, he's come in, spent a tonne and now we are an absolute shambles of a club. His staff appointments have been horrendous, Walsh seems to have been a total disaster, Koeman likewise, and now we're faced with Alardyce and Sammy Lee coming in! We've gone from being 'The People's Club' to appointing a manager 90% of the fan base do not want here, with an assistant 100% of the fan base don't want here.If you take over a business that's running solidly, even if it's treading water, and within a short period of time it's a mess and performing far worse then there's only one person to blame, the man who took over the business. We are a mess, a shambles and I have very little faith in the new stadium coming off if his time in charge has been anything to go by!
We’ve just drafted in a “relegation specialist” something we’d never had to do before this fella arrived.
Regardless of the relative merits of Allardyce, the fact that it took us 5 weeks of searching to come up with an answer to our problems as uninspiring as him, is worrying. (Not to mention the disastrous Watford/Silva episode, or the appointment of Jim White as de facto club spokesman.)It's on par with the long and embarrassing chase of Sigurdsson, only to end up paying what had been asked in the first place.
...............well it happened at least once Everton 0 Bolton 4: Bolton’s bullies thrash EvertonJonathan Northcroft at Goodison ParkDecember 18 2005, The Sunday TimesShareIn the away section the scene was utterly different. Sam Allardyce has brought Bolton supporters much to enjoy over the years, but seldom an afternoon of such merriment. “We want five” they sang, “easy” they chanted, “going down,” was their goading conclusion. Everton should have enough quality to avoid the last becoming a prophecy but, after two home defeats in four days, their revival is over.They collapsed in the closing stages, buckling under Bolton’s unique way of exerting pressure. Allardyce’s side spent the first half softening up their opponents. Everton are supposed to be robust, but they were bashed out of shape by a gang of bullies led by burly Kevin Davies, who forced Bolton ahead after half an hour.
