Why Moyes doesn’t deserve a new contract
With less than 12 months to run on his current deal, lots of Blues are forecasting imminent doom if Moyes doesn’t renew his contract. I don’t share those fears and I certainly don’t believe Everton are seeing anything like ‘value for money’ from the 12th highest paid manager in WORLD football.
I’ve said this before but if he gets another 5 years on anything like the salary he’s on now then we may as well turn it in. We constantly hear that Everton are no longer an attractive option for good managers given the financial situation at the club. I recall similar cries of ‘who would want it?’ when Walter Smith was boring us all to tears. I would go as far as saying that attitude gave him another 18 months in the job.
We have won nothing in ten years. Moyes has embarrassed the club and its fans by sulking since January. Four seasons in a row we’ve been awful until Christmas. He hasn’t had a sniff of a ‘bigger job’. ‘Take a pay cut or do one’, would be my opening gambit.
How about seeing how Moyes does next season, and if he does well give him another year? Contrary to what some may say, there won’t be a queue of clubs beating our door down to take him off our hands.
It’s a well paid job in a league, rightly or wrongly, regarded as the best in the world.
I fully expect a backlash from the happy clappers, the people who read Bluekipper, wear a Fellaini wig and buy DVDs of us beating Liverpool.
How many other clubs and supporters would be fretting over the future of a man who has failed to put a single piece of silverware in the cupboard in the space of a decade and has choked every time he has got close?
