U taking the pistacchio Posh Hamner?
Howe is my choice. Don't want Moyes back
I wish I was!
I really do rate Martinez and for me it shows how fickle football fans are these days that as soon as a team goes on a poor run, they want their manager gone.
You only have to listen to a Martinez interview to know he is switched on and knows the game. I really think Everton would struggle to get better.
Edit: A quick look on Wikipedia shows he has lost just 34 of his 124 games in charge at Everton. Do you seriously believe you could find a manager who would do better than an average of only 1 loss every 4 games?
Just as an FYI, his total in 124 games is Won 54, Drawn 36, Lost 34
he's a big Blue though isn't he Howe?...............i'd be worried our manager loves no marks.Presumably Everton fans want someone who can focus more on the defence and stop the side conceding so many goals, and is less obsessed with the attacking fluid style and buying attackers?
Howe He'd do your heads in. he's very similar to Martinez. Maybe not quite as barmy though. He also doesn't like living anywhere that doesn't have a beach for his dogs and is north of Ringwood.
Sounds like he'd be ideal as Arsene's successor!I actually agree. For the squad Everton have got, they should have done far better over the last season and a half. The football can be easy on the eye and at times destructive when everybody is on it. But Martinez's sides have never been able to defend and it appears to be getting worse and worse in this respect. There will be managers out there who can balance the nice football with collective team defending far better than Martinez can.
The problem is, as I see it, our win ratio will get worse. I have no confidence in him for the future. We are looking to sell club to rich Americans and we need a better manager. This season we have dropped far too many points from winning positions. Martinez has no plan B. Yesterday when we were 2-1 down he brought a defender on and left Kone and Lennon on the bench.
You lot are living on a different planet, a couple of defeats and he will be gone? I think not.
Everton may look at the situation in the summer but there is no way they are going to fire Martinez because he's only in midtable, even if that drops to lower midtable.
