Moyes in the Frame!

Moyes in the Frame!

There`s a lovely rumour in the Daily Star and a rumour that may excite the Vital Chelsea membership.

With one Sunday red-top reporting that Rafa Benitez is looking to become our permanent manager, instead of our interim one, at the end of the season, the Daily Star is reporting that Chelsea are looking towards David Moyes as our next boss.

Moyes, who has done a remarkable job at Goodison Park, completed 500 games as Everton boss yesterday in their 2-1 FA Cup win at Bolton, a fact recognised by the travelling support who paraded a banner proclaiming - Moyes - 500 games - 500 More - Legend.

Whether there is any foundation in this rumour remains to be seen, but would the possible appointment of Moyes placate the Chelsea support troubled by Benitez being at our club?

It will be a historic first if this ever happens. Roman does not have a history of liking British managers.

I'll take moyes over rafa any time any day without batting an eyelid, moyes is far better than rafa and he is more consistent with his form and winning, he make good signings and also develop players making them look like worldclass, pienaar, rim cahill and fellaini with baines come to mind...

Can't help but feel that it doesn't matter who is our next manager will be. Without the club structure to support him and the patience not to fire him at the first sign of trouble what difference does it make?

After 8 managers in quick succession, haven't we learned that it is NOT the managers our main problem? We have had bad ones (Benitez / Scolari) and truly world class managers (Carlo / Mourihno), but it is the stupid Board - Gourlay / Buck, who try to decide which players come and which players go without any Manager's input the main problem. Look at Carlo - he was forced to play an aging squad when he was denied of younger signings. For RDM, he was given players with flair, and although great, some of them are not direct nor powerful enough (Marin / Oscar / Hazard). Benitez is asking for reinforcements and all we have done is replacing an outgoing Danny with Ba. We have NOT improved in key areas. This all means that the Board does NOT think our squad needs reinforcements, but is laying all the blame on the coach. Same as with Carlo. Let some suits decide the players you can get, and you'll have Chelsea. We always seem to get behind the f. eight ball.

he is a good honourable man. Dont think he will be a match to the clowns we have in our board. He is the man we need but not what we deserve. We deserve rafa the tubby

Dont think Chelsea is the right fit for him, he would be foolish to take the job, he is the kind of manager that would need time to build a team. I'm not really sold on him either all that time and the only notable achievement is a fourth place finish. Not even a cup at least I would take Arry over Moyes any day.

We are unfortunately going to be scraping the barrel when it comes to appointing a new manager. If we can't guarantee that the job security is there and that the financial resource will be there when required then no top class manager will even look twice at us. It's heartbreaking to think that we have just had the greatest achievement of our clubs history in may, to end up like we are at the moment. Jose, Klopp, would be amazing for us, but patience is the key, specially with Klopp. I say this out of concern, if we don't have a clear direction and stability, and gourlay, buck and emenalo out then we will have years of being Liverpool.

I realised it is almost impossible for us to lure any decent managers to become our manager next season. Let's look within us and give a chance to our reserve team coach Avi a chance... As long as he the tactical capabilities and willing to give a try to the youngsters, it will be sufficient. Also, we need to replace ME with Guus Hiddink to look for players we required. No RB although I was quite excited with his appointment prior to this... We need to be realistic with our young manager... Otherwise, I wouldn't mind to have Guus leading our ex player - Ballack...

I think my opinion is in line with @blueleader1... Moyes may be a decent coach for us but can we as a club, especially the fans, be patient enough with him... can we give him as much as 3 to 4 years to win his 1st EPL for us.... Chelsea fans always expect miracles... and let's be honest... Chelsea is a different cup of tea from Everton... how well Moyes will be able to handle Chelsea remains unknown for now but he sure deserves a shot...

Moyes should stay where he is he would make a good manager but its the stupid board we have which is the biggest let down.

Good coach but the expectation in Everton is very different compare to Chelsea. when Sam Allardyce was with Bolton everyone thought he was a top coach even some section of the media wanted him for the England job. Everybody know what happened when he moved to a bigger team with higher expectation.

one thing we have to accept. English premier league is different to other leagues. A team like stoke cannot exist is a spanish or german league. We need managers with experience and pedigree to have a say in our day-to-day matters and transfers. Rdm moyes premier have experience on their side. Managers like klop will struggle here. Players like oscar mata would be well protected by referees in spain brazil or italy. Mourinho realised this and he built a squad based on strength and pace rather than tricks and flicks. Managers of experience will realise this. I would therefore prefer the current munich manager or hiddink as a short term manager for 1 or 2 years at chelsea to be followed by our own adi viveash or zola. With hiddink or jupp continuing as directors of football, but i guess this is wishful thinking on my part.

My fear over this rumour is no manger will believe our board's empty promises that would fail when there may be signs of hard times, ask AVB. Managers like Moyes who have safe dignity and would want total freedom to run the team without any interference will never take to any promise our board might make.
