Moyes is boring. He picks boring teams. If he buys exciting players, he bores them with contract disputes. Same if a top-notch youngster comes through, he bores them with caution and contract disputes. He is boring.
I want to be excited. I want to be entertained. All you Moyes apologists need to get real and I decided to post this before we went 1-0 down against Newcastle. Cahill and Saha should have been sold for profit a long time ago, 4-5-1 will never win anything unless you have a class manager or world-class players in a shit league.
Moyes is boring. I am sick of it and so you should be!

Again Distin is picked which we all know he is a player that is not worthy of a starting place.
Yak deserves a proper chance to start he is showing he really wants to play.
Bily and Coleman should be starting.
And for Heaven's sake, why is Jonny not at the back with Jags!
We all can see it, so why can't Moyes!
2 Posted 18/09/2010 at 17:00:13
Ben arfa embarrassed us and this is a player who would cost less than Bily and Distin.
The rest I agree with. Moyes is stuck in a cycle of repeating the same mistakes over and over. Even groundhog day has a happy ending but I don't think this one will unless he goes.

Dear David Moyes, please do the decent thing and step down now
12 Posted 18/09/2010 at 18:21:36
13 Posted 18/09/2010 at 18:23:38
Moyes needs to be brave, fuck off those that are not performing and take a few chances, we got fuck all to lose. Mind you having the grand total of £1m to spend in the summer hasn't exactly helped us has it!
14 Posted 18/09/2010 at 18:33:41
So the question is, who would you prefer to see in charge? Who should be the next manager? Let's be honest There's not much out there as Aston Villa have just found out.
Personally, I can't see much out there other than Martin O'Neill or Glen Hoddle (controversial I know but I think he is a quality manager).
15 Posted 18/09/2010 at 18:48:30
I'd be happy with either, I'm a believer in people who've fucked up then come back again.
Read about Hoddle's imaginative schemes in Spain and think he's learned his lesson after the pseudo spiritual shit he got involved in.O'Neil lost it a bit at Villa, half the Villa fans thought he was a twat, I'm of the opinion he's not.Both are individuals who'd lay it on the line to BK and chums.

Today's tactics and substitutions were on a par with the worst days of the Walter Smith regime. Again, only one striker up front at home to average opposition, and a striker who looks totally out of his depth at this level, but you can't blame Beckford for not producing ? he has come from two divisions below the Premier League for Christ's sake!
So we are being out-played, out-thought and out-fought against a piss poor Newcastle team and everyone is crying out for changes at half-time. And what does the 'Moyesiah' produce? Take off your striker and replace with a different one; take off your right back and replace with a different one ? never mind the fact we are playing with a centre back in midfield and Leon Osman continues his wretched performances on the wing. Carry on the 4-5-1 approach and dont even think about maybe playing two strikers when you are losing at home...
It's baffling.. and if I woke up to reports tomorrow morning of Moyes being sacked or resigning ? I would bloody love it.
17 Posted 18/09/2010 at 19:01:29
Let me make it clear that I shall still be saying this in the unlikely eventuality that we are at the bottom come Xmas! Davey will then orchestrate a run that will see us again saying `If only we`d got it together sooner.......`. I love it under the Moyesiah ? we`re safely in the Prem.... and guaranteed to stay there!

For many years now I've banged on about the crap twins, how a combination of pure luck and abject opposition performances have protected the Ginger One and that buffoon of a chairman. What is happening now is the end result of years of poor leadership from management and board level. Bullshitting supporters that has been allowed to continue year after year after year: Kings Dock; 'watch this space'; Destination Kirkby... etc etc... Making do... and now this year no marque signing, no one to add class to the squad ? it's pitifull.
Two points from 15 is a joke... it's sacking form, Kenwright can't do that though can he? The tool... If this was industry, Blue Bill would be deemed unfit for purpose... if only.
Forget European football, forget a top ten finish... this is the season that breaks Moyes...

24 Posted 18/09/2010 at 21:05:42
This could be the season that breaks Moyes, and there'll be a time to judge that, but its not the five games into it that breaks him. Maybe this result and performance is the one that counts as 'rock bottom' and forces Moyes to try something different, maybe he'll keep doing the same things and expect a different result. The next team selection is crucial for where we are with him and where he is in terms of being willing to learn and take risks.
25 Posted 18/09/2010 at 21:09:53
For all our sakes the sooner the better.

we played shite football when we came 4th, we played shite football though our European campaigns (yes, yes, apart from the odd flukey wonder goal), we played shite football all the way to the FA cup final, and we'll play shite football until Moyes resigns.
29 Posted 18/09/2010 at 23:54:12
Replaced by whom?
Name me the genius qualified & attainable to lead us into the land of milk and honey.

As temp in house stop gap?? I give you.... Capt. Pip... shit how bad is that?...you never know he might start picking a semi decent team/formation, with Sq pegs in Sq. holes and, with a bit of luck, do the decent thing by including himself out to concentrate on the coaching.
34 Posted 19/09/2010 at 09:33:05
Replacing like for like will not change a game. As we were all spouting on the forum yesterday, Johnny off, Felli into the DM role, Bily on up top. Okay, you can change the subs around but you have to change shape to change a game, HE JUST DOESNT KNOW HOW. His tactic is to just cross his fingers and hope we snatch a goal. Absolutely Rubbish.
Replacement? Sven would have us playing decent football.....
35 Posted 19/09/2010 at 13:57:04
That's a good question that you ask but, if your argument is that Moyes should stay as manager because some of us can't name a successor, that's a pretty flimsy defeence. In the 1980-81 season it was obvious that Gordon Lee wasn't the man for the Everton job - I am not sure that 100% of Evertonians had Howard Kendall as the man for the job. But it was clear that Gordon Lee was going to drag us down.
I take no delight in the situation, I hope that David Moyes is able to turn things around. However, I doubt if he is flexible enough in his tactics to change things. I was watching the "Football League" programme on after "Match of the Day" last night. Steve Claridge was commenting on Ipsich Town's fairly good start to the Championship season ? "They've got attacking options" was what he said. I thought about our team Everton... well I think we have attacking options ? it's just that the manager doesn't bloody use them!!! Look at Tottenham ? they were 0-1 down at home to Wolves; Redknapp doesn't prat about waiting for something to happen, he makes the changes and looks to make things happen. I am sorry if you don't like reading it, but I fear that David Moyes is far too cautious and predictable in his tactics ? he needs to change and fast.
ps: Martin O'Neill, John Collins, David Jones, Sean O'Driscoll ? that's four names to be going on with.
36 Posted 19/09/2010 at 16:36:48
Time for Moyes to go - he is not going to change. His selections yesterday were typical of him and very poor. Heitinga and Coleman should be planing in the back four for god's sake. Osman is just not good enough, play felli as the holding mid, peanuts, arteta and billy in the middle with yak and beckford up front. We have some decent players but a manager who is tactically useless.
