i said at the time you cant put an aldi manager in harrods, its the respect you need from the players, eddie shoestring aka moyes was used to a budget, now hes loads of cash and haggled every club on the planet (and lost) he still thinks haggleing works at man u, we ended with with felony (that i cant forgive him for and even he cost more for his haggle) all the players in the world we could have got he signed felony,
what i do get is he got the tommy doc job, he had to retire half the starters
he got paid well for his year, he should have returned to everton but went elsewhere.
There wasn't an opening for him and the manager doesn't sign the players, he was asked for s list of targets and he gave them in and at no point was he told to go back to the drawing board because his targets were in gettable. Tbf, his targets were gettable, Chelsea signed Pedro and Fabregas, remember Woodward flying back from Australia to finalise a big deal when every big name used us to get new contracts because Woodward hadn't a clue?? Moyes was with the players on the other side of the world, Woodward was in charge of player signings, Fellani was a second choice but Eddie thought he could get the marquee signing so much so HE let Fellanis release clause expire and ended up overpaying. Then he broke the record and signed Mata because Jose didn't want him but by then Moyes was already on a hiding to nothing.
But blaming him for inept club running and a shite marketing manager turned CEO who had a 'mare first season is fuck all to do with Moyes.
Isn't it weird though that Jose trusts Fellani so much, even making him captain last month and LVG singled him out for praise?? He's a conservative managers dream player, follows instructions and does what hes told,
Personally I don't think he's an amazing player but I'll listen to European cup winners over you seeing as you don't know how the signing of players even works.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.
