Under Martinez first season he inherited an aging, shit team, no money, he made £15m profit and reduced wages, then got 7 points(10%) more than any other season in last 30 years. He left far more than he inherited, we got nearly £200m for Stones, Lukaku and Barkley. He didn't get a window with Moshiri's money, despite his arrival raising expectations even further. He was sacked because we weren't going to get CL football and the wheels had fully come off, but we needed a window to change things. Martinez planned over longer term and was almost willfully blind to short term problems.
Since then we had 7th is good for Everton and now it's about survival. We've had the £200m+ from his player sales, we've spent money on top of that and it looks like a pile of turds again. Moyes, Koeman and Allardyce are all older generation of managers, they all want those special players, but we never seem to have any. Under Martinez he'd be delighted with a turd, if it was the best turd we had, look at it glisten, tremendous.
If Martinez took over now, he'd put Pickford, Kenny, Holgate, Baningime, Vlasic, Lookman, DCL, Sandro in the team and wax lyrical, but they would be supported and develop into very good players by next season. Instead we'll crowbar Sigurdsson, Keane into teams that are playing well and keep returning to unorganised confusion, and bending over when going to big teams. Martinez would trade blows with anyone, in their own backyard, his fearlessness was often seen as carelessness. I think bravery is a key ingredient for the very best managers and I saw that in Unsworth and Kenwright, I don't see that in Allardyce or Moshiri.
