Koeman built the side on his own as new owner Farhad Moshiri backed him with all his resources in the summer transfer market. There was a sense of optimism around the Merseyside following their return to Europe and Everton were expected to challenge for the top six spot at least.
But instead of rubbing shoulders with the biggies, Koeman’s side have dropped down to the relegation zone following their 5-2 thrashing at the hand of Arsenal. Generally, the Toffees are pretty patient with their managers but it has been a frustrating start to the season and their defeat against Arsenal proved to be the final nail in the coffin for Koeman.
Moyes had an 11-year-long reign at the Goodison Park but he lacks the winning mentality as he hasn’t won major honours at the Merseyside, which could be alarming for the Toffees given their ambitious approach this season under Ronald Koeman.
Despite his topsy and turvy stewardship, Moyes did the unthinkable, leading Everton to the Champions League qualifying stage back in 2005. But they failed to make anything of it as they lost to Villarreal in the playoffs to end their hope of competing in the Europe’s premier competition.
Everybody was surprised when Manchester United announced David Moyes as the replacement for Sir Alex Ferguson as a manager like him didn’t seem to have a big club mentality and the move proved to be a blunder as Moyes’s held the office at Old Trafford for a mere eight months.
He went on to manage Real Sociedad and Sunderland and failed with both attempts especially with the latter as the Black Cats got submerged to relegation under him. So apparently it could be a step backwards for the club in turning their attention towards him but his relationship with Everton chairman Bill Kenwright could play a big role in this matter.
Kenwright maintained a healthy relationship with the gaffer and even backed his decision by prompting that a job like managing Manchester United could be too hard to resist. Koeman’s days have gone up in the air and Moyes might be given the chance to fulfil his unfulfilled dreams at the Goodison Park. But Moyes bring back the days of the past?
