Moyes Is Actually Fergie Mark II

Moyes Is Actually Fergie Mark II

Sir Alex Ferguson has vehemently denied retirement plans, insisting that he will keep going while his health allows him to and he feels absolutely fine. So right now it might not have much relevance but I actually think that, in many ways, Everton manager David Moyes would be his perfect successor.

No, I do not suggest that Moyes is as good as Fergie. He may well be but he hasn't proven it at the very top yet so he has a lot to prove. But you should think about his most important attributes and you will see a striking similarity with SAF.

- He's Scottish - check

He's a long-term manager - check

He's got a great eye for players and is a very good motivator - check

He's not the sharpest of tactical minds - check

His substitutions are often infuriatingly baffling - check

See? Moyes is actually Fergie Mark II but we have yet to see if he has the sheer quality to live up to the original.

Minus the trophies? Kidding, rather him than Mourinho, much more stable choice!

Mourinho have a past with chelski so he is out of the race for me , Moyes is ok but Fergie staying means more time for ole to learn from him and maybe be our next long term manager

I would love to see Ole come in as SAF's assistant for a while before that though.

Moyes would be ideal for you lot - after all, he's got experience of managing without any money.

fcb, it's the trophies we count not doling out humongous amounts to geriatrics!

Elvido - nice to see you have an enquiring mind (Not). The geriatric I'm sure you are referring to , P Vieira is earning 20K per week (TWENTY THOUSAND) plus appearance bonuses. I'm sure that's a humongous ammount to dole scroungers like yourself, but it's not a great deal in footballing terms. But hey, don't let me stop your little fantasy as you sign up Scholes, Giggs and Neville (on much larger wages than PV) for another year.

Yeah, "PV" is worth 20K (THOUSAND, also known colloquially as GRAND) unlike our geriatrics who score winning goals, keep the likes of Ronaldinho quiet and put in more appearances than your mercenaries. Fantasy is what you bitters do, we have been living our dream for a long time now! But hey, don't let me get in the way of your delusions!
