Best thread ever.
Restored my faith in evertonians, Moyes won't get the Spurs job of course but it's as though he's gone and more fans than I thought not only aren't arsed but are positive about it.
The "Wizard of Oz" comes to mind, as the evil witch gets soaked and disintegrates her soldiers free of tyranny say she was always a tw@t!
Get Harry in FFS
Moyes is ambitious and will probably not stay at Everton his entire career (not unless a Sheik buys us!), but he doesn't fit the type of manager Levy is supposedly looking for. There's always the Man Utd talk, and when Ferguson does step down, it will be very interesting to see who succeeds him, given the long-spoken rumours.
Is Redknapp out of order for wanting to commit the twilight of his managerial career to Spurs or being open to going out at the top with England? Many said that they were the best footballing side in the country last year and it was probably only the distraction of the England job that prevented them finishing in the top three. His sacking is extremely harsh.
I don't think there is an awful lot between Everton and Tottenham on the pitch, provided we're able to keep Pienaar. They could probably raise more by selling Modric, Bale and Van der Vaart than we could be offloading Fellaini, Baines and Jelavic but there wouldn't be much in it. I'd personally rather have Barkley, Rodwell, Duffy and Coleman than Livermore, Rose, Huddlestone and Townsend. Beside their big names Defoe, Pienaar, Bassong and Dos Santos are unsettled. Gomes, Bentley and Jenas are dead wood and Dawson is a perennial injury victim alongside Huddlestone. I wouldn't have much faith in Friedel, Cudicini or Gomes and they have big problems at both ends of the pitch. There is a surprising amount of work to be done at the Lane, whereas Moyes has said that it would only take about Â£5m for him to get his Everton side how he wants it.
Premier League, especially as that is what appealed to Saha and Vertonghen. He'd have Bale, Modric and Van der Vaart protecting the back four while Gallas launches long balls to Defoe.
Has Moyes gone yet?? ffs
And do they have a director of football still? who is he? From my knowledge, every buy Redknapp made are all his. No Chelsea or citeh blind buys, all his.
All you've said is that its either Everton or United...but is tough as hell never get the united job.
If Citeh or Chelski came in for Moyes, would he turn it down because he won't have full control? behave. A manager's cv states what you've won, not where you've been.
It will be AVB I think still and all this will die down till the next player to be sold rumour/Moyes contract. Thats what bugs me we get this every year, really wish I could just put Everton on hold over these summer months
At first i thought Moyesy might well consider it but im not so sure now?. Im wondering if Redknapp agreed to leave cos he didnt get assurances on funds?. I mean, spurs qualified for the CL but didnt really spend to build a squad for it, they went with what they got and only really bought van der Vaart and got Adebayor on loan.
And in january he was wanting to sign Remy and what have ya and ended up with Saha and Nelson. CL qualification was vital to Tottenham and they've unluckily not made it so will they have the backing to splash decent amounts of money to challenge for the top for again, im not sure?.
And then some of there players could leave now there not in the champions league, the likes of Modric, Bale, van der Vaart. So would Moyes be better off going to Spurs when you consider all that?.
Since january, since he did a bit of wheeling and dealing, Moyes seems vigorated (sp) and alot more positive about us and knows himself that we are 2 to 3 players for the first team away from being serious challengers for Europe atleast, possibly even CL!. And he's got a relationship with the chairman where he's in charge and calls the shots, so would he really give all that up for Tottenham, a club where the chairman interferers?. I doubt it!.
If i was Moyesy i'd wheel and deal this summer, keep our stars and look to really build on our second half of the season and see how we get on. Then if we can get the right players in the i really think we could push for CL and then who knows, maybe he'll stay longer or then maybe be considered for a bigger job than Spurs, say, Man Utd?!.
I just think Moyesy is better than Spurs and deserves a better job if he ever is to leave us!.
And as I've said, they can attract better talent and pay higher wages. Bale won't go for anything less than 30mill, Modric 20mill, Van de vaart will probably stay and you'd get about 9mill for him or so. Moyes at Spurs would keep pienaar, throw the bale money at Fellaini, snoop around for gems he doesnt have the cash to buy at Everton, and be in.a better position than are.
They finished 18 points above us or so. The gap is massive. There won't be a firesale at spurs unless a club is wanting to spend big.
That's the only thing that would make spurs
look for a bigger name...someone to keep their players.
