    Well in an open forum, we are all entitled to use your posts to respond and put them in context with other matters discussed. Your problem is, you use your thought of availability of managers to reinforce your thinking United and Fergie have made a terrible mistake.

    People like you do not know the difficulty in employing the right man for the job. If Fergie is easy to replace, you probably know very little about how big the shoes are to be filled. The task to find a replacement is not something your level would be able to imagine. To make it easier for you to understand: to this day, Steve Jobs was not properly replaced.

    You dismiss outright that if the club and Fergie have considered carefully like what you wrote essays after essays, the club would not have been in the situation right now. But you have no basis to speculate the club has not done a lot to finally appoint Moyes. It is just very unfortunate Moyes let all of us down, Fergie in particular. There is really no guarantee other manager will definitely succeed and fitting in.

    The extent of your criticism of the club and Fergie went too far and I had to state my opinion. And it's not just because I did not agree with you. You have not understood the task at hand. I am sure people like you won't be happy when in the future a high profile manager turned out to be not a good fit and we have to start the process again.

    People use the internet to spout rubbish too often, and if you are not taking the discussion seriously, then its my fault for taking yours seriously. If you were just having too much time in your hand and felt the need to write essays after essays here witch hunting for fun, then I will leave you alone.

    Let's add on Rooney's increased/extended wages, Nani's 5 year contract, Moyes's severance package, and 1000 pound for the plane over the stadium.

    Hehe - yeah, the last one could prove to be the straw.

    Seriously, though - we're loaded. That's the one, real reason we all - almost all - believe we'll bounce back. We have the money to compete. If the Yanks are willing to pay. That has been the premise all along. Fergie, in many a sense, saved them a buck. He didn't require extreme outlays on players. Our fate now, as a true top club - one that is always there or thereabouts - depends on the Glazers' willingness to spend when necessary. And "spend" now doesn't mean forking out a premium to land a PL proven player of some description. It means forking out what's necessary to land top class players that might otherwise feck off to Madrid or Monaco.

    So, yeah. I hope the Glazers aren't in tears over what Moyes has cost us in CL revenue. It's one season. If they can't take that on the chin we're - as I've said ad nauseam - fecked. If the Glazers are stingy, we're looking at Wenger style 4th place trophies for the foreseeable future.

    Which would be an even bigger nightmare for us considering that he won't go anywhere regardless of his underperformance on footballing aspect of the club. He helped the Glazers buy the club and he was the brain behind our big increase on revenue. If he is good then great for us, but if he isn't then we will be in a very dark place IMO.

    Exactly, mate.

    Given that we're not likely to see the likes of Fergie again - a genius manager who made United his own and loved the club to bits, and who was for all practical purposes the true ruler of the empire - the role of Woody is now more important than ever.

    In terms of a real leader we have - seemingly - gone from Fergie to...Woody? That doesn't fill me with confidence, I'm sorry to say.

    Yep. THe reports of him insisting on Cavani which seems to be more for show than for real need have made me worried a lot. If they are true, then we have a Perez on charge, a guy who while is great at doing business doesn't know anything about football, and even worse, thinks that he knows and interferes with the manager. To make things even worse, we don't have the finances of Madrid and nor we are a non-profit organization (we all know that Glazers are here for money alone).

    Hopefully it is either bullshit or Woody hasn't been serious.

    One thing I'll say is that unless we hired mourinho, then this season would have been a bit shit regardless I think. Don't think anybody has the personality Nd arrogance to seemlessly transition after fergie and the first manager was always going to be a failure, and that our next period of success would come with the guy after the first manager post fergie.

    Saying that, moyes did an awful job and worse then anyone could ever imagined and so much worse then it could have been.

    Same here.... I am hoping our tradition and Fergie's being on the Board will keep our uniqueness for a few more years and when we have a more steady manager, he will give the club an image and leadership we need post Fergie. And of course it is more important than ever the members of Class 92 will feature heavily in the new regime.

    Why are we still arguing about it? He's history and we should thank God for that! David Moyes himself doesn't give a feck about his sacking anymore..... To me he looks more relaxed than ever, like he never destroyed the champions of England.

    Don't necessarily agree it would have been shit, depending on who we got. We needed a big name manager to deal with the players. They wouldn't respond to anything less, as Moyes' time has shown. Wouldn't have expected us to be out of the top 4.

    Well, he could've waited a few weeks for the season to end, Miami wouldn't have gone anywhere. It's called empathy, he just got 7 mil. for leaving the champions of England out of Europe. It would be a sign of respect towards the fans who supported him till the end (and they were many).

    But then again, maybe you're right, it really doesn't make a difference. He was a tourist here for 9 whole months, enjoying his good fortune. And now he just continues his vacation.

    I agree with everything but the bolded part. Where in all that is it clear that Moyes is good at anything?

    Makes sense to go to Miami. Less chance of people noticing who he is probably. Although I'm not overly sure how big football is over there? NFL and NBA are probably more popular.

    Been done to death, many sane heads here (including me) knows that his 10 years at Everton is nothing short of stagnation instead of punching above his weight.

    Some people label it "Genious" here though "Keeping Everton midtable with a shoestring budget" is the new treble

    Moyes' tenure at United has given people the impression that he's a shit manager. He's not. He might not be a top drawer manager, but that doesn't make him a bad manager. Everton finished 6th, 5th, 5th, 8th, 7th, 7th, and 6th in the last 7 years. If Martinez can do better than that consistently in the next 5 years, then that will prove that Moyes stagnated at Everton. As it stands, the main reason why Everton are 5th and fighting for 4th is because United fell to 7th place.

    Also, contrary to popular belief, Everton did not play shit football under Moyes.

    So fecking what Mel, it's just midtable finish

    With the stability and the squad he has, finishing 6th is no big deal budget or no budget.

    Martinez won the FA cup, nobody remember 5th or 6th finish, but winning the FA cup as bloody Wigan is the hallmark of the club.

    Captain Obvious showed up at Carrington one day wearing a red shirt that said in big letters Moyes You Could Be Sacked Soon and was like "David, sit down, we need to talk".

    "About what?"

    Some people seriously have a lack of common sense.

    Moyes knew of the clause, he signed the contract in the first place. If he didn't know that the clause exists, I'm questioning why United hires a manager who can't fecking read.

    He's hoping that the board gives him time and don't activate the clause, but for sure he knows of its existence.

    Of course he did.

    The clause had to be there otherwise the LMA wouldn't let United only pay him off for a year. Moyes had to see it was getting worse and he must have hoped if he was off scouting and kept talking about next year, rebuilding he might get away with it, he'd written off this season by Christmas in my opinion, it was all about next year. Maybe United let him think about next season, but surely he'd realise as things were getting shiter he'd be for the chop, after all he'd but his cronies out spinning tales

    What United manager does as much scouting as Moyes, sure Fergie took in the old player but usually at the end, did Moyes trust no one, next we'll hear his wife washed the kits and daughter sowed on the badges... Pity he didn't focus on management.

    He also got Wigan relegated and they always flirted with relegation. They were an absolute shambles in defence, just trying to play the same way when they had hopeless players suited for the system. Sorry, let's just not get ahead of ourselves here with all this Moyes hate.

    To be fair I couldn't give a rocking horse's shite about how good David Moyes will or won't prove to have been for Everton. I only care that Moyes was the manager of Manchester United and was shocking by any metric you care to use. I don't hate the guy, could care less what he's doing now or next, as long as he's not at our club.

    Why do we have to prove Moyes was better than he showed? Surely that Moyes fecked up, and is now gone is the only consideration of his tenure. Let's move on and forget this season happen huh?

    Edit. If we are going to focus on an ex Evertonian, why not let's try and support Fellaini, after all, he's proved poor but is still out our club and still a United player (whoa that feels dirty)... Where's all the Fellaini apologists at?

    I don't know who killed your cat today, but nobody's asking you to give a horse shit about anything. The post was in direct reply to Sky1981 saying Moyes stagnated Everton for a decade. His time here is a failure, but there's no need to knock him on what he did at Everton.

    Let's not be completely disingenuous, Wigan turn over in its entirety, about 5 million a year less than Moyes was spending on wages at Everton.

    He literally had nothing to work with in real terms.

    I'm not saying Martinez is a bad manager, he's a great guy and a very competent manager, much like Moyes at Everton. There's a lot of revisionism going on here with respect to Moyes. I'm very glad to see him fired, but I still think he did a very commendable job at Everton. Martinez has done unbelievably well in the first year, and he'll be judged as a much better manager than Moyes if he continues his work with the same consistency. I just don't see how Moyes could be a very bad manager and he's been holding Everton back?
