The fact that ESPN continues to be able to secure the talent of Roberto Martinez with each major tournament is a huge coup for the American broadcaster.
Martinez is a perfectionist in everything he does. Hes an excellent communicator. He almost always adds observations and pieces of wisdom that are enlightening. And his calmness and effervescent personality in front of the TV camera is a joy to watch.

Well that's what some people will think - but my take is that anything that brings praise and reflects well on Everton FC is a good thing and the media play a very important role in the game, it is not to be underestimated how many new supporters from abroad will be attracted to the club via Bobby's stint at the World Cup.

Can't someone teach him to rant, bounce about, threaten a passing policeman or show extremes of emotion on the touchline. I hear this is what English fans want. We're all dickheads after all.

The media despised him because he despised them and generally, the media's treatment of the club was negative and has remained so. Every manager since has been close in type and personality to Catterick until now.
Whether we like it or not, this is important because the club does need at least fair treatment from the media and Roberto has brought that and this will grow.

Even Mike Walker for all his faults wasn't dour, just ask the journalists who interviewed the silver fox at the pre-season tour of 1994. I can't imagine the word that sprang to mind as our Manager approached them fresh from tge swimming pool resplendant in an orange thong was 'dour' !!!!
Dave Stalin Roberts!
