But these were the new guys that he just brought in. He axed the entire operation along with the DOF- medical, scouting everything.View: https://twitter.com/David_Ornstein/status/1483110846255489026
should happened a long time ago....way too many injuries to Richarlisson and DCL
The problem with most football clubs is lack of patience and succumbing to short term pressures.It's crazy that Everton sold one of their best players because he didn't get along with the manager, and then turned around and fired that manager a week later. Absolutely no vision or plan or strategic thinking.
Neither would be first choice. I don’t think either would be horrible.Looks like both Rooney and Lampard are being interviewed. @OCST - I know they are “shiny objects” but it doesn’t seem a terrible idea.
Lampard did a good job IMO with the Chelsea kids before the German influx inflicted by the owner.
And Rooney seems to be doing a terrific job with Derby County.
As a Newcastle fan I have some experience in these sorts of situations. This particular type of silence means "please stop shouting at us we don't know what to do what would make you stop shouting but also make you not know that you made us do this thing by shouting at us."BTW, the worst thing is the deafening silence from the club.
I would sob into my pillow if we hired Jose.Reports that Everton reached out to Jose but he’s happy at Roma.
I think it's too early for Rooney. There's a ton of baggage there re: his Everton history. It wouldn't be an issue if someone with the equivalent pedigree but from United or Palace or Roma were doing his turnaround job at Derby, which is phenomenal.If Rooney wants the job I think they'd give it to him but I'd like to see him finish the season out at Derby to see if he can get them to stay up, thats if the FA allows them to exist anymore.
Rooney is my all time favorite athlete. When United lose, I wipe my tears with his youtube highlights. But I would have like to have seen him hone his craft in the Championship or even League One before taking a Premiership job. Unfortunately, I think the allure of the Everton job would be too much for him to pass up.
He's evidently done a great job of taking the young players under his wing at Derby, like he did in DC. I'd love that. But if he got caught with six beers in his belly and his pee-pee out again, that's going to knock the club back.Wayne Rooney's job as Derby County manager is reportedly 'on a knife edge' after leaked pictures of him asleep at a hotel with women posing alongside him went viral.
fletch, I agree.https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtK4QAczAN2mt2ow_jlGinQ
The pinned video on Everton's Youtube chanel is 10 minutes of Dunc's first training session. I watched the whole thing. At first i never recognized Baines, but then i remembered he's a big Velvet Underground fan and indie music in general - I think the hair works for him.
There's something oddly comforting and wryly comic seeing a gruff passionate Scotsman getting in aboot it, he's kicking very baw and very vocal, but his energy is really positive and infectuous. Is it enough? I really hope it works out for him but I don't want to see him getting the permanent job. If he has to leave the club in the next couple of years I'd rather it was to manage a lower league club.
I agree with the comment above regarding Rooney. If he can keep Derby County up that would serve him well in terms of his managerial aspirations.
I love Big Dunc. He's so heart on sleeve. It fired me up watching that training session.
No, it’s that he’s “represented” by Joorabchian, the middleman and influence peddler who has Moshiris ear.the snarky answer is that someone in his inner circle has been playing too much FIFA and looks at his defensive ratings
certainly hope that Dunc has learned a thing or two from Carlo...and maybe Rafa....
If i hear anything i will let you know mate.Can youze do me a favor: I'm swamped at work, up against deadlines, and have a doctors' appointment right in the middle of the day. I'm turning on my social-media blocker and deleting Twitter from my phone.
If Everton appoint a manager today, can someone send me a PM, which will trigger an email?
Only if there is an appointment. Since I'll be in my office til late, and it's on the 6th floor, I'll be able to jump once I read the CV of whatever zombie we human-traffic from midtable of the fourth-tier Saudi league.
It’s not just that.Yeah, Everton fans have been angry with the ownership basically as long as I've been a fan (started following during Donovan's first loan spell), but this seems different. Things have been toxic for a few years now, but bringing in Rafa and having him crash and burn has really taken it to a new level. I have no idea if Pereira would be better or worse than Lampard, but at this point if the fans hear Moshiri wants A, then in must be the case that A is terrible and we must have B instead.
yes, it's all of that tooIt’s not just that.
It's despair over yet another rapid managerial turnover - although it's not just that.
It's realizing that the club has, again, invested in a manager's style of play, and brought in a few players to play that way, only to sack him, leaving a mishmash - although it's not just that.
It's acknowledging that, despite the club having several very good players, its core has delivered mediocre results under every conceivable style of managers, and gotten them all sacked, revealing a lack of leadership, or balls, or giving a damn - although it's not just that.
It's the further realization that the board is inept - although it's not just that.
It's knowing that, since the board is useless, the owner has no guidance, so he has spent money like sailors on shore leave in a whorehouse (HALF A BILLION POUNDS) and only made the club worse- although it's not just that.
It's seeing that the owner loves shiny objects, big Hollywood names, except that any such coming to Everton are already on the downslope of their careers and overpriced and/or looking for a rocking chair, although it's not just that;
It's that no one at the club talks to the fans, leaving them to play Kreminology, although it's not just that;
It's seeing that the owner thus sidelined his director of football, who was hired (and named to the board) due to his track record of identifying low-priced talent on the fringes of Europe and South America, that could play well for the first team and be sold at a profit - the only sustainable model for Everton, since even this free-spending bloke can't match the resources of City or Chelsea - although it's not just that.
It's perceiving that, because of the vacuum of leadership, certain agents, has-beens and hangers-on have been able to exert outsized influence, pouring poison into the owner's ear, pimping investments in terrible players (and managerial candidates), lining their pockets in the process, although it's not just that.
It's knowing that hiring a Liverpool legend like Benitez was bound to alienate many fans, so the balance in the bank of goodwill was bound to be low from the start, but the owner persisted, although it's not just that.
It's being able to see that Benitez' career has been on the downslope, that his tactical sense was obsolete, and that he's a miserable, stubborn prick to boot, although it's not just that.
It's that - as happened under every one of those managers - after a fast start the team's performance nosedived, although it's not just that.
It's that once things started to go bad, Moshiri decided he had to go all-in on Rafa, so he backed him when Rafa fired the director of football and the entire football operation (scouting, medical, the whole bit), he backed him when Rafa ran Digne out of town - but then fired Rafa two days later, without any clue of who to bring in, when it was clear to everyone that Rafa couldn't last. So now we are a fucking train wreck, lurching in every direction and no direction at once, a week into the managerial search and things just getting murkier, the transfer window running out, AND THERE IS NO ONE AT THE CLUB LEFT WITH ANY FOOTBALL KNOWLEDGE OR EVEN THE JOB TITLE TO HIRE A MANAGER OR BUY OR SELL PLAYERS.
hamaybe it just forces whoever the manager to start Anthony Gordon
