12/11/2014  Comments (8)  jump
Xabi Prieto, the captain of David Moyes's new club Real Sociedad, says that he is looking forward to having the Scot on board the struggling Basque club.

"He has a very big reputation in the game and all the players want him to do the same for us here as he did with Everton," he said.

Good luck to him.

He probably needed a change of league really after what happened at United.

Even though we should dislike the way he left Everton we can't forget the gems he brought here, the likes of Seamus Coleman wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for Moyes, appreciate that.

What's the odds on a old boys reunion eventually in Basque with Mikel Arteta??

Don't know about a change of league Jim, more like a change of sport.

Yeah your probably right, Dave. I eventually see Moyes working as a TV pundit to be honest, don't see him coming back to England to manage, at least not anytime in the near future.

I can see him trying to pick up one or two of our older players to 'steady the ship' and 'pass the message' as regards how he wants things done.

It wouldn't surprise me if he went for Osman. That would certainly please one or two on here.

Apparently they are not big payers so only Hibbo and Ossie would fit the bill !

Martinez is a big fan of the Real Sociedad academy system.

Jim Bennings,

I think a lack of a personality may be a handicap as a TV pundit.

Moyes has landed on his feet with such an appointment after his train wreck at Manchester United.

Marvellous city, San Sebastian, and they were champions of all Spain when I was last there in the mid 1980s.

Very passionate fans and people are the Basques and will love him to death if he can get them going the right way and project a successful image of their Atlantic city.

Equally, they will be all over him if he starts dithering as he has form for doing.

In summation, a temporary posting to re-fire the engines before the next adventure, probably as another humourless goon sat upon a BBC chair telling us what we already know.
