He was always style over substance (the hard man who often left his team paying the price for his indiscipline), the guy who fell out of love with footy until a good pay check arrived in the form of us where he could coast and not have to actually do much, or well.
The guy trumpeted by many as a club legend (Blue Bill at the forefront of that) which frankly showed how far we'd fallen as he wasn't fit to clean the likes of Sharp, Latchford and Dean's shoes.
Good riddance, him and Unsworth both getting booted for me are huge positive signs fir Thelwell so far
He’s not a legend. What an insult to all those actual legends we have had.Absolute legend. Everton through and through. Even his kids support us.
I wish him every success in the future. Some sad lads on here with disrespectful opinions. Shouldn't be surprised , yet somehow I am. Perhaps I am getting confused between surprise and disappointment.
It was obvious after a couple of weeks he wasn't in the gang.True, I thought the same. Lampard brought plenty with him. Might be the nudge Dunc needed to take the plunge!
I'm sure he'll be more of a players manager, motivational stuff week, in, week out.Had nothing against the guy just never had put him on a pedestal as a player.. could never understand how he kept his position under every manager and seemed to be bullet proof to criticism. It shows a change in culture from the owners that we are now trying to move forward (hopefully)… will be interesting to see what success he can have when he is the guy.. he has had loads of examples to learn from. Some of the most experienced and respected manager in the world.
He might prove me wrong and really show he has more than passion and bravado .. good luck to him.
