I personally do not think RK is the right person for the club as he is a modern day mercenary just like Pep and Jose are. these types of managers go to clubs when they are promised a shed load of cash to spend on players. they are not true managers.

RK only came to EFC as he was promised money from the new shareholder but it now seems that there is money there but not what RK was thinking hence the reason for dragging over heels on certain players - some people are say just spend the extra 2 mill etc and get the player in etc but these extra 2 mill soon add up over a few transfers and EFC are just not at the stage of throwing money away.

For this reason that is why I like Moyes. worked with what he had and did a great job - Koeman on the other hand does not seem prepared to work with what is availabale and starts moaning and hinting at he requires new players all the time - just a personal obseravation.

As a EFC supporter of more than 44 years I want success but I do not see it with RK unfortunately

Give him a chance for gods sake, he's come in to a totally disgruntled football club in every capacity and you expect over night success, give your head a wobble.

If he isn't happy with the squad he inherited then keeping quiet isn't going to help him. He needs to speak out to push for change. He said it would take 2 years, so judge him in 2 years rather than just shortly after 4 months.

It's a bit early to judge RK, especially since the squad he inherited hasn't been overhauled too much. It's also a bit daft to label him a mercenary just yet, we did, after all, court him despite his club saying he was unavailable. RK was happy to stay at the saints but we, as a club, persevered and pulled out all the stops to get him. The board had to make him an offer he couldn't refuse and promise him the funds to pay for the massive rebuilding job he faced by taking over the reigns.
DM did a good job in a financially restricted period. But we are in a different era now with a total different set up. When RK joined he said it would take a few windows to get the players in that he believes can have the club competing for the top 4 and trophies. We are in the second window of a two year project so there is no need for knee jerk reactions. Nothing has changed in the months that he has been with us.
Only time will tell if RK is the right man for the job but, as fans, we have to believe he will get it right and we must get behind whoever dons the shirt on match day. This year was always going to have its ups and downs as he finds the right formation and gets the right additions to bolster and improve the squad. Some on here don't like the word but we are in transition and patience from us fans is needed. There is a lot to look forward to, the club is moving in the right direction so we shouldn't moan and groan too much. I will, however, agree with the doom mongers if we are in the same position this time next year but I truly believe that the club will continue to improve both on and off the pitch

Unfortunately intel, that is football in the modern era. There is too much money at stake and nepotism is rife. I think the likely hood of an up and coming manager being given the opportunity to manage a top tier club has passed. I liked DM and like RK's honesty and think he may actually be good for the club time will tell on that though.

INTEL that post it just a joke how can u say that the manger is clearly sayin thw club needs player which we all cam see tje squad ia terrible an your more worried the manger is not the ryr man after a few months in the job what a joke

{Ed025's Note - for me the manager is the least of our problems callum..

We new the last window we where short 24th hour valncia deal was desperation. The manager requires support.

Just don't understand how people can blame koeman teally tho is expectations are high with the player we are linked with i just think its hard to blame him personally i think he is the right man for the job an we need to get behind him

{Ed025's Note - im the same callum mate, sometimes the manager is not the fault but the mentality of the players, i believe that this is exactly what is happening at west ham..

100% agree with you ED. If they had the same attitude as the manager they would be in that top 4. They have talent but lack the ambition.

What I've heard from the players since Koeman started:

Standards slipped with the previous manager with people turning up late for training.

Training is now longer with the new manager.

Training is more intense

The manager told me to lose weight.

The manager wants us to train together and less segregated.

The manager wants us to work harder.

The manager wants us to make less mistakes and become more accurate with the ball.

The manager wants everyone to take responsibility on the pitch.

The manager wants us to defend in all areas of the pitch.

Everytime it's from the manager. How many follow these simple instructions on the pitch. How many for 3 years became lazy and cared less and less.

It's not this manager letting us down it's the players that have been getting away with poor standards on and off the pitch. This manager won't stand for it the same as us fans.
