Mr morishe needs to start again in the summer and have a clear out jags, Baines, Williams, Rooney, besic, schnids, Martina, Lennon, all need to go and rebuild. But first job throw the cheque book at a top manager like Simone and get him at any price.

Appreciate your sentiment about getting a top manager but just a point of caution.
From what I've seen of his team's, is Diego simeone not just a Spanish big Sam?
He sets his teams up defensively despite having an array of world class talent at his disposal and He plays counter attacking football which we don't have the players for atm and I don't think anyone fancies another summer of 8-10 players in and the time it takes for all those to settle. But he is also tough, a battler and a winner.
I am be wrong in my opinion of him, don't watch his side week in, week out but I think we need to scour the world and get the right people in to advise the club on who the right man to bring in will Be, to move our great club up to the top.

Yeah just sell our only left back and our top scorer. Good plan.

Yes be careful what you wish for. One of our current problems is the amount of change of staff. Players, managers and directors of football etc. Any team game needs a team that can settle. Look at Man Utd, Spurs and how long it took them to settle after a major overhaul. We do need additions. that is unquestionable. but it will take time for players to understand their teammates and strengths and weaknesses. Man City took a while to gel. all teams take time. We have already had at least 2 major overhauls and are now suffering from: bad signings, lack of cover in certain positions, lack of any player in one position, too many in other positions (if that is possible) , too many older players, an over-reliance in too many younger players and a change of 3 managers in a couple of seasons. In my humble opinion, this is why we are so bad now. not because of one man who has come in to steady the ship. I don't think there is a human being on the planet who could make us an instant success.

Echo comments above. What we need is a cohesive Squad and Team, not all this constant chopping and changing. No blaming Sam except to say, stop listening to us fans and others, pundits being the main culprits. I like the Philosophy of you do not change a winning Team (in our case unbeaten) . Coincidentally our unbeaten run ended when Sam like Koeman and Unsworth before him decided to chop and change. We need that unbeaten consistency once again and you only get that from a settled side.

I know this is only an opinion site but some are just total unrealistic. So as we are spending Mr Morishe money for him I think he should wait to see who wins the CL then buy the whole team and management structure and bring them over to Goodison to play as Everton.

Ye forget the title he won by breaking up the la liga monopoly of real and Barcelona and the champions league finals.
Big difference between him and SA is he is a winner mate.
The reason lpool won so much is because they signed winners and the boot room had a winners mentality.
Simeone is a winner.
SA keeps teams up?!
Ferguson broke up the monopoly of rangers amd celtic. Another winner who signed players with a winning mentallity who also played counter attacking football but ye SA just hasn't got players like lookman or bolassie or lennon or walcott ya know players with pace who can hit teams on the counter.

I said he was a winner, Pauly but it seems to me the style of football is similar to Sam's and people are moaning about how turgid and boring our football is atm. Simeone has also struggled this season. Losing and drawing games they should win and getting knocked out champs league group stages.

This is why we either have to support Sam and hope he works out for us or take a long hard look around the world (and take advice from football people. and ed2) and find the right younger manager for a long term project to build us a dynasty not a stop gap.

He seems to have admitted he has taken them as far as he can.
I think he is hungry for another project.
His reps contacted us ya know.
You say he uses similar tactics?
Maybe but have you seen his midfield at work? His defence at work?
When they defend they do it with guille amd determination and the midfield is so hard working it can break anyone down and then hit you hard. Also he is at a club that sells their best assets regularly.
He is young, ambitious and prepared to die for the club.
He would be am instant hit at our club and his football will evolve naturally as will his reputation as a great manager.
La liga is similar to the scottish prem and no one is going to permanently remove Barcelona or real let's be honest.
He needs a new challenge and we need a new force amd he is perfect.

23 Jan 2018 16:00:18
Pauly what evidence is there that his representives contacted us? Only time I seen it was a couple of rags using the story but no solid proof.

23 Jan 2018 16:29:35
Reliable journo from the echo.
Cant see him risking his reputation for a fake story.
Many people were talking about this at the time and saying he isn't one for repeating tabloid garbage.

Sam for me is not the answer. It's only early with him but he is not filling me with confidence with a change in his old set ways.

However, we have to give Sam a chance. It's was the wrong appointment but we've made it and have to see it through to the summer at least.

Simeone is nothing like Sam. They have a great mixture of attacking play but what he does do is get intelligent players who are good on and off the ball. They see danger but on the attack are even more dangerous.

I think though he will probably be at Chelsea next year. Definitely not with us.

Thats a great idea SA90. In fact why not take their ground as well. We could knock it down, ship it over, and rebuild it quicker than we will get our new ground :-)
