#276Well, I know next season you'll be wishing you had his "boring" style of play while you struggle in the championship. EVERTON POWER>
I just skip past any article written by McNulty and head straight to the comments. Style of a university student trying to invent another round wheel. You have to admit next year's league is set up on so many different levels, there's plots, sub-plots, manager merry go rounds and the usual masses of transfer activities. Is it any wonder people prefer EPL over England? BRING ON AUGUST!
It never ceases to amaze me how everyone goes on about RM's style and attacking football. They obviously didn't watch it for four years.It worked in about 20 matches out of 152 games he managed us. The rest of the time it was mind numbingly dull and boring.Too much emphasis on keeping the ball, passing sideways and backwards for the sake of it and trying to bore the opposition in to defeat.
As much as I admire Martinez and his flamboyant personality, I think maintaining a 6th place will be tough business for Everton next season... Let alone Champions League.
Id be very happy to see Martinez dog-fighting with Everton in the relegation zone. *crosses fingers*
I'd like to see Martinez & Everton do well. But I have to be honest, the two don't seem suited to me. Styles more than anything.Probably benefit from a defensive assistant to shoulder some of the coaching.Everton, especially at home, have always been identified as a hard to beat, hard working team with the odd goal scorer by any means.Decent first season,then not so good once changes set in.

A naive article (again)! 1) No manager has ever won a football match, only players can do that2) His ability should not be measured by how many trophies the club wins. Nowadays financial resources govern who wins the league, the CL places and most of the cups. 3) He can only work with the players at his disposal so should be judged on how he improves them and/or the team
I have great respect for Martinez and Everton and I very much hope it works out well for both parties.I don't think "only" avoiding relegation for three years is a poor achievement - after all, clubs with much bigger budgets than Wigan's have been relegated in the past.I will be very happy for Everton to finish second in the league as long as Liverpool finish first!
267. I think a more relevant question would be, where are Portsmouth and Birmingham now? That pretty much answers the question why a strong league finish is worth more than a cup win.
Why do people lay such great stress on David Moyes failure to win anything? Portsmouth won the FA Cup, Birmingham the League Cup so where are messrs McLeish and Rednapp now? Top 8 finishes in the Premier league were excellent outcomes. Sadly winning the FA Cup no longer counts only the Premier League - only money gets you into the top 4 and Moyes never had that.
@262. 100% of Zero is...? Ok, I'll help you out with this one... Zero! I think you need to work on your Math. Moyes is an obvious fit at Man U, I think it's more questionable why replace a man who has kept Everton a top 8 side for years with a manager who has been getting closer and closer to relegation with for years. Cup win aside (any team can have a run) Martinez has not proven anything yet!
Rumour has it that Arsenal have triggered Fellaini's £24m buy out clause. This could trigger a bidding war with Utd. Silly money for the Fella? Bring it on!
263To put it frankly, attractive football does not win you games______________it does when combined with massive transfer fees/wages e.g. barca
Roberto Martinez record with Wigan Athletic FC from 15 June 2009 - 5 June 2013 Played 175 Won 51 Drew 47 Lost 78 Win % 29.14To put it frankly, attractive football does not win you games
Dear PhilWhy does Mr Martinez have to showcase anything. Yes his team were relegated this year but lets face it he has won 100% more trophies than the previous manager of Everton!Perhaps Phil you'd be better explaining why after employing a man who won everything there was with a small scottish side, Man U have choosen to employ a man who other than keeping everton in the EPL has won nothing
So Everton have just lost a manager who will now be managing the champions, and gained a manager who's side have just been relegated?Look I know Martinez is a nice guy and he has a good style, but does nobody else think this is a massive risk?
