Player Valuation: £15m
Away and read up on managing change in the workplace.I backed Benitez because if he succeeded so did Everton.
Same way I back Frankel even though I do have some reservations I hope he smashes it here and gets us into europe or a cup final.
I do believe though that the OTT support for Lampard from a section of the fanbase is down to guilt felt by many in how they never gave the former manager a chance from the start which did ultimately play its part in how the season unfolded.
Some wont admit it publically on the forum but I do think there is an element of overcompensating for their previous lack of support.
Benitez was literally a case study of how not to do it, his personality and style in that situation was always going to end up alienating players and losing the group….plenty saw it coming and it turned out to be the case. He’d have taken us down 100% and it was all his own making.
Managers like him never accept any responsibility for something not working, it’s always someone else’s fault. Even in his interviews recently, he doesn’t have the insight to reflect that he managed change at the club very badly. Pigheaded fool.
