    What next for dithering Dave?

    Not too sure he will be concerned, a nice payoff and away from three of the most dodgy characters in the football world IMO---He will be at another Club soon enough, as will 'Big Sam'---After the first six weeks of next season those Clubs in trouble will be eyeing them up again

      Watford? That'd be another 12 months before another payout seeing as they change managers each year.

        Agree.

        Moyes is definitely at a crossroads. He's beginning to look like a journeyman manager after building a great reputation at PNE and Everton.

        At 55, it's surely time to decide if he wants to try for a secure job at a stable club where he can hope to get back to what he did best... or whether to accept a third consecutive job-offer from crackpot owners. If he takes the latter route, I'd lose interest in seeing him succeed.

          He did a marvelous job here but I think a lot of people tend to forget that he did it ( in general ) with players signed by Gary Peters........ Same with Billy D who did it with Craig Browns players......... Peters and Brown obviously had an eye for a player but for some strange reason didn't know what to do with them.............. Perhaps a highbrid of all these Managers is the type that really makes it ( and stays ) at the very top.

            I'd like to put into print my thanks to Dave for syphoning £10 million out of West Ham into our club for Hugill.

            Him and Alladyce are actually making the Premier League Managers Dining Club in Athletico Mince become more and more like real life everyday. Bob Mortimer will have a field day with this.

            Nice One.

              Certainly that 2001 play-off side was the result of an unusually stable squad. Of the 16 in the matchday squad (without looking up detailed player records) I reckon about 12 or 13 had been signed before the end of the 1990s with a big majority of those signed 97 or earlier (before Moyes was manager)... which was pretty remarkable.

              He did keep Everton doing pretty well for a decade. Maybe their players were all pushing 40 by the time he left there!

                I thought Moyes was out of contract. Do you still get a pay off when your contract ends?

                  I feel great sympathy for Moyes. Used as a stop the rot manager and dumped very ungraciously out of West Ham in my opinion. Should the opportunity ever arise, then I for one would welcome him back with open arms, just like I would with Billy Davies.

                    You're right... so there would be no pay off.

                      Peters and Brown started dicking around with fancy formations, and to quote Brown, Brazil play this way Davies and Moyes came in and played 4-4 fooking 2.

                            Remember Brown quoting Brazil’s formation when he attempted 3-5-2. Trouble was their wing backs I think were Cafu and Carlos whereas we had Grezza and possibly Eddie Lewis?!!
