Foreign No 2?

Comments (2)

Looking at the signings made over the past few years by Premier League clubs, it seems that the majority have obviously been foreign players wanting to ply their trade in the richest league in the world. The best and brightest young talent (Ronaldo, Tevez, Modric, most of the Arsenal kids) all seem to be picked up by clubs with foreign managers or at least a foreign Number 2 (Queiroz, Ramos/Poyet, Wenger et al).

I think David Moyes has for the most part been very astute in his transfer dealings (aside from the few we all know about), I just wonder how much more appealing Everton as a club would be to some of these foreign players if we were to have a Number 2 from the continent, or even from Asia or Brazil ? sure there would be language problems but think of the benefits of a coach that understands the continental mentality and the way European clubs work.

Moyes knows all about how the Premier League works by now, let's get someone in with a fresh perspective and who knows, we might end up with the next Lionel Messi or Sergio Aguero....

As hopeful as we may be that Moyes might bring in a no 2 who has a more attcking mind set, we all know we’ll end up with another defence minded scot. What’s Archie Knox up to these days?

If Preston is a ’foreign country’ then we’ll sure be getting an overseas influence in at No2.
