With the imminent departure of Sherwood a lot of steam is gathering in the media that Moyes may be our next manager.
I know I have slated Sherwood and rightly so he has been awful so far. Having said that I have been thinking of the alternative and too be brutally honest if our only option is Moyes I think I would rather see it out with Sherwood.
Why? Very simple I think Moyes is at best a tiny step up on Lambert and at worse the same as Sherwood. He was a safe pair of hands at Everton would always keep them in the top 8 but won nothing, zilch! He also never won away against one of the sky four teams in eleven years. His style of football is ok nothing exciting though and until after the MON era we had an outstanding record v Everton home and away.
Since Everton he went to Utd where every man and his dog knew he was only keeping the seat warm for a season as no top manager in their right mind would take over after Fergie! He was effectively a patsie, a fall guy if you like. Now he is in Spain where he has won just one game from 8 this season and there are mutterings that if he dosn’t jump to us he will be pushed!
Is this really what we want a manager who’s record is comparable to Sherwoods and not as good as Lambert? How does failing in Spain qualify him to manage our great club?
Now some of you on here will think I’m a bit harsh as most of us would love top 8 at the moment but in all honesty I see Moyes as another grey suited dour yes man who Lerner will manipulate. Another Lambert or Mckeish clone if you like who we will all turn on at the first sign of weakness.
My opinion of course but what is yours? If Sherwood is sacked is Moyes the answer? Up the Villa.
