Harping the credentials of David Moyes

Everton Manchester United
by OneRedUtd (U8676894) 02 March 2008
comment on the article

David Moyes, at 44, is one of the brightest young managers in the game, combining an attacking ethos to hard work, and showing a good eye for talent. He would therefore be a natural candidate to succeed SAF at Old Trafford.

He has taken Everton to the Champions League with a team built on a shoe string budget (having spent 79.1m and recovered 51.9m).

His decision to bring on Andy Johnson today vs Portsmouth also swung the game Everton's way as his team scored twice to win 3-1.

*************************************

Here's a very good article about Moyes' obsession with football:

"Moyes' obsessive pursuit of excellence hints at a great manager in the making"

He turned down the chance to become SAF's No. 2. But can he resist the allure of succeeding his mentor and role-model in the Utd hot seat?

Arise, Sir David Moyes

Deluded I Mancunians I think.

If he is 10 times the player now, why aren't England seeing that benefit ? I would probably say he has been less influential for the national side since the move !

He is only used as a striker & a lone striker at that far too often. Playing for Man Utd does not tax him, therefore he isn't developing as player. To be honest Tevez is a better player than Rooney in the same position.

Seriously look closely when he plays? preferably with the sound down so you don't listen to the hyped commentary. He simply isn't that good anymore

====================

Not really. I don't agree in that he would be at a Utd or Arsenal in a couple of years time, as you intimated, because by then he'd be 30-31 and I can't see either team going in for a midfielder of that age.

David Moyes has proven to be good a coach, but that is because he is at Goodison Park and not Old Trafford. The kind of Talen that flood Old Trafford would be too big for Moyes to handle. The egos that this talent come with are beyond the comprehension of Moyes. So although it is a season that Moyes has proven his worth, me thinks Carlos has been trained to handle things at Old Trafford better when the big man finaly calls it quits. It would be terrible to have a trial and error with Moyes.

I am sure you will call for Moyes to coach the Brazilian national team if he ever comes as close as winning the 3rd position in the premiership.

And if you know your history... I like the way you say about Moyes going to a big club!
He is already at a big club. I don't deny that Man u have shall we say had there share of the spoils over the last 15 years but grow up Everton are a top club with a top fan base. We don't need you r comments about us give us respect fine but forget about the cherry picking. You got Rooney and to be honest I'm glad he went he is a perfect example of a galacticus- a player to big t=for the club unable to accept that he is part of a team!
Everton I love and I always have and I always will

Well done Everton! The best most surprise package I have seen in the Premiership this season, ahead of Man City! Go and play with your badge with pride and get fourth place into the Champions League because unless Liverpool, you deserve to be there.
