Martinez to leave Wigan/takes over Everton

Postby Hams » Tue May 28, 2013 2:10 pm

Wigan have announced this morning that Roberto Martinez has left the club.

The Spaniard took over as manager 4 years ago and won the FA Cup this year but couldn't prevent the Latics going down.

Has he made the right decision and will his next destination most likely be Everton?

Whelan really is a tiresome little berk.

he must have SKy on speed dial with the daily updates he feels the need to give them. i've said it before but i can't understand why he is so insistent on whoring his manager out at every opportunity.

Martinez is massively over rated as a manager i feel. he'll do a decent job, i'm sure when he goes to Everton but i don't think he'll be eclipsing the efforts of Moyes who got where he was through a sturdy backline and grinding out draws rather than defeats - the total opposite of Mr Martinez.

Martinez dragged this on so much until he knew who were interested in him,i have lost some respect for him after this...now he knows Everton are interested he's finally made the excuse that he's not the man for Wigan..Pathetic!!

Lets hope he's in another relegation scrap this season.

Yeah he is a little overrated i'd agree with that,his playing style will destroy the hard working ethic that Moyes has instilled in Everton all these years,and hopefully Everton will playing an higher line and will be there for the taking.

Martinez's style is more suited for the Spanish teams and i could have seen him at Malaga once Pellegrini does leave,Everton don't have the squad that plays attractive high pressuring football so it will be interesting to see.

but all Martinez has to do is win a trophy to better Moyes efforts....he will certainly have more funds than at Wigan . It will be interesting to see how Martinez copes with a club whose expectations are far bigger than just maintaining Premier League status each season , and if he tries to change the way Everton play .

It looks like Everton have agreed a compensation package with Wigan to hire Roberto Martinez as their next manager.

he has promised to get them into the Champions League ...something Moyes never achieved during his 11 years at Everton , a 4th place finish is going to be tough , plenty of clubs will be aiming for the same ...Liverpool , Spurs , Arsenal with Man Utd ..Chelsea and Man City expected to claim the top 3 spots .

There is no way that Everton will ever finish in the top 4 and qualify for the CL so it was really a foolish promise to make by Martinez.

my thoughts exactly. i can't understand why they make these bold claims as it will surely just backfire.

we'll see how Martinez copes without being the underdog and in the spotlight. i don't think the Everton fans will be as absent minded as the Wigan lot when it comes to defensive frailties.

Everton finished 4th in 2005 as the following season we had the uproar of having 5 english teams in the Champions League as Liverpool were the holders and finished 5th behind Everton,not that it made any difference as Everton lost in the qualifiers to Villarreal if i'm not mistaken..

In other news,after only 3 weeks in the Everton job Roberto Martinez has already achieved as much as Moyes did in his 11 years with Everton.

Everton fans must be delighted with their new manager so far.

the pressure is beginning to mount on Bob Martin after four consecutive losses.

can he turn it around or is he going back to his leaky Wigan days? he's spent an awful lot of money with seemingly very little (if any) improvement.

i, for one, hope he fails. :wink:

Yep, a rapid decline for Everton this season, Five Live tweeted this to illustrate the point:

and here is something that should make happy reading for yourself and Hams:

However, I write this before the FA Cup tie between the two teams, probably means this is where the Toffees start to turn it around!

5 points from relegation with the following fixtures:

Arsenal A
Stoke A
Newcastle H
QPR A
Southampton H
Swansea A
Burnley H
Man Utd H
Villa A
Sunderland H
West Ham A
Spurs H

not too many fixtures they'll be relishing in that lot. could the unthinkable happen? Everton in the Championship?

If they do end up getting into Championship then who would be new manager? David Moyes? :shock:

I think Everton will stay up by virtue of the fact that Burnley, Leicester, and QPR are worse. I'd say Villa are looking more vulnerable than Everton, if Sherwood thought he was going to get a little "new manager effect" honeymoon, he got a rude awakening on Saturday. They also have a tough run in to the end of the season, they are in trouble, no mistake guvnor.

So Everton have smashed Man United 3-0 at home, and now sit above West Ham in 10th place. What say you about Bob now Steelster? I'd say the dreaded Europa league affected Everton's form as it did Tottenham's. Tottenham have a 'deeper' squad than Everton, so we are better placed to play in the competition, but despite that to be competitive we still need to field key players like Kane, Erikson, midfielders like Bentaleb, Dembele, Mason and the first choice back four (not the best anyway when you look at the stats) have to turn out. I really don't care if we don't qualify for it this season, and if we do maybe it is time to turn out the youth team....
