The Managerial Merry-go-round


Recommended Posts

Someone on the Everton forum posted Talksport saying Jonjo Shelvey will be their first signing. Surely not? Shelvey hated Rafa. Must be the stupid Jim White spouting that on Talkshit, baiting the Evertonian cunts. Sorry Neil. Not you.

This would be so unfortunate. Would hate to see him go somewhere he isn't even going to be appreciated. Horrid stuff.

 

I'm guessing he must have blown the owner away with his ideas for the club as he's always very diligent about such things, and the owner has the willingness and money to make Rafa's plans all a reality.

 

Oh well ... will be just great seeing Everton become everything we should have. Just bloody fantastic.

Got to admit I'm a bit gutted, but the takeover is far more important than Rafa, would love to have both mind. If it does happen then I wish him the best, just don't think the supporters will ever warm to him.

It's a cracking signing for them. Despite all their spending and Ancelotti I never actually thought Everton would go anywhere, just because they're Everton and I can't remember ever seeing them do anything. Rafa changes things though and gives them a real chance. Spurs are going to look like idiots for not signing him when Fonseca gets sacked in October.

It’s not inconceivable that he’ll have a release clause and as soon as a takeover happens, we’ll activate it.

Very sad news. 

 

Imagine us beating them and Bruce afterwards. :anguish:

If it comes to Bruce still being in charge when we next face them, although I hate Everton, I couldnt bear for us to win, even a draw would see Bruce claiming he was as good as "the mighty" Rafa, ugh!

I get it in terms of his location but he’s been through all this at Chelsea, why put yourself through it again? Judging from Twitter and their forum he’s going to be on the back foot immediately, a bad start and it’ll be very difficult to win them around

And people have the nerve to call us deluded!! Everton have been in the wilderness for years and they’d rather stay there than appoint a proven winner because of a previous job he succeeded in. Fucking weapons!

They deserve Allardyce more than they deserve Rafa

 

I think they're a shithouse club, like. Their sense of entitlement to the modicum of top flight mediocrity they've become used to is astounding.

They're using China to justify him being past it. But in China you had a foreign player cap, and the standard of that league isn't something you can easily shape through tactics - he was heavily reliant on inexperienced youth in his full season so of course results would be poorer. Treat it as a new challenge with absolute ambition from Dalian's owner (250 million worth training ground, 14 pitches). Was a step up honestly for wanting a project. Often 1 goal margin defeats like was the case here in 18/19

It is another kick in the bollocks like innit.

 

Crikey, will we ever have anything to be happy about.

 

Too bloody depressing at the minute.

Only thing left for me now is to see what the result of arbitration is. If as expected, it goes against us, its goodbye NUFC and football from me. Literally cant be arsed with the pile of shit football club ashley has turned us into and cant be arsed to support a club denied the chance to be able to compete again by the premier league. It's completely pointless.

Shite appointment for him and Everton. Doubt it’ll last the season. Just like moving to China, I said it then and I’ll say it again Rafa’s motivations aren’t as clear as he makes out.  No doubt he’ll mention the word ‘project’ but really he means convenience and very good money. I don’t begrudge him that, I’d do the same, just won’t be fooled by what comes next.

The people in here trying to justify the China job as a "project"

 

:lol: 

 

he came back cause he missed his family too much right?

 

This is living proof why you should never get too attached to a player/manager. Loyalty in football doesn't exist.

It’s a no-brainer from his point of view. Ambitious owners with deep pockets. He could turn Everton into a decent force.

 

Hopefully his first purchase is a decent goalkeeper.

 

Wish him well but it’s sickening. If we do get taken over I think I’d prefer a young-ish  manager with potential to grow with us.

His family lives in Liverpool, so taking the Everton job is fairly obvious for him from a personal perspective I imagine.
