Look on YouTube at the football Borussia Moenchengladbach played under this guy and then come back on here and say you don't want him.

Plays nice football and brings in youth really well, but nah, viva Moyes!

I don't want him we have a new chairman worth over a billion why settle for 2nd or 3rd best we just had a guy who wanted to play nice football and look where that got us we need someone who can mix it up not just have plan A we need a man who has won things not just a cup lots of cups a winner someone who knows how to win .

He transformed Monchengladbach from a relegation side to a Champions League club. Mixes things up. Plays 4-4-2. I'd take him.

Personally i don't care whos manager. Wether it be a world class manager or someone that's relatively unkown.

As long as he gets us winning and playing a balanced game ill be happy. Plus i'd prefer a manager that brings youth through. I don't want to be the next club that tries to buy success.

The way he sets his teams up make Pulis look adventurous.
He may get a few good results but he ground would be half empty through boredom by xmas.

konehead, eight other teams in the prem have major shareholders worth over a billion. Plus others in Europe. It is irrelevant to the revenue if the club. Their money is not the club's money. We are not even in the current top 20 richest clubs in the world by value, although we are at number 18 by revenue. We might rise up those lists with new investment, but we won't be anywhere near the top ten anytime soon. For perspective: the top club, Real's value is nearly 10 times that of the 20th club. This is why Jose will go to utd - their yearly revenue is €520m, ours is €165m. Let's say Moshiri invests £100m (€130m) and let's ignore the minimum €200m we need to spend on a stadium. Let's also ignore any potential investment other billionaire shareholders may make in their clubs. We're still nowhere near. "Let's splash the cash, we should break the bank to get Jose. " We're not there yet, even if we felt he was the right fit for us, which is debatable. It's going to get better but it takes time. Managers are judged in a season or two and we will be competing against far richer clubs for the next season or two. We want a manager who can do exactly that - compete against richer clubs - while developing our excellent youngsters, many of whom will either improve our team, boost our revenue if we sell them, or both. Emery, Favre, De Boer are all excellent candidates, in that order for me. Emery and Favre have over-achieved with their clubs - taken them to the champions league against richer clubs. All of them have intensity, intelligence, tactical nous, integrity and a record of making players better. Emery would be a coup, do not doubt it - the guy is a world class manager.

{Ed001's Note - a large proportion of Madrid's revenue comes from playing in the Champions League. Everton would immediately go way over 200m just simply by qualifying. Getting into the Europa League, even, increases revenue markedly and has long term effects on fanbase, as European football brings in more fans.}

That's true, ed. But to qualify, we'd need to finish above not one, but 3 of the following 6 clubs, all of whom are still significantly richer than us: Arsenal, Spurs, City, Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool. All multi-billionaire owners; all will have world class managers next season, all of whom don't have to spend as much as we do on their stadium. I'm ignoring Leicester, West Ham and Southampton. I'm not saying we can't do it; I'm just saying there's no great likelihood of it happening in the next year or two unless you know of factors the rest of us don't?

{Ed001's Note - I was just pointing out that there are other factors at play than just current revenue. For starters it will go up due to the TV deal. Even the smallest English Prem clubs can compete with the likes of Barca and Real Madrid financially from next season.}

But those six clubs we have to leapfrog also get the tv money - more of it than we do, in fact!

{Ed001's Note - true.}
