Unfortunately fans of clubs such as Everton and West Ham find it impossible to accept that budgets of hundreds of millions of pounds make no difference at all. Many on this forum think the same when they say " How many trophies has Allardyce won"?The reality is that no club outside the top 5 or so can compete on a level field and these people have to accept that.
Moshiri appears to have the finances (or be a front for Usmanov's finances), the stadium is a crucial piece in the jigsaw to make any success and growth sustainable

Most of the posts in this thread are indicative of the average Everton fan. Utterly clueless, ignorant and of very low IQ.Facts: Moyes did an above average job at Everton no more, no less. His football was often dire, sometimes entertaining, but always lacking in a winning mentality in crucial matches. He was shown to be average at United and in Spain. Allardyce is a very accomplished manager with clubs in the middle/lower tier of Prem football. Despite being a pioneer in sports science etc there is huge swathes of the footballing population that dont like his pragmatic approach - much like the brilliant Mourinho. Successful managers like Mourinho/Allardyce are so far advanced in their thinking of how to win matches theoir teams have no right to win that the clash with well meaning but for a better word `thick' supporters will always cause them problems.Its like Brexit. No matter how many times intelligent economists will tell `dim' people that they will be worse off is they vote for it. They still will.Its just life I suppose, have a drink and laugh about it.
This is most probably the least intelligent and most nonsensical comment I've ever read on the Betfair forum. I'm genuinely hoping it was intended as a wind-up attempt.

The Brilliant Mourinho? He's a chequebook manager who's lost his way.Is this the same brilliant Mourinho that bought a 90 million pound attacking midfielder and played him as deep as Matic all season, and the same Mourinho that had his team playing long ball with balls lumped forward up to Fellaini for knockdowns?And in regards 'intelligent economists' predicting we'd be worse off after Brexit, these werent the same intelligent economists using outdated models (IMF, OECD, the Treasury) who predicted a dramatic slowdown in growth post referendum, or those that failed to predict the 2008 global financial crash, or the Eurozone Crisis that followed the recommendation we ourselves should join the single currency, we'd have been like Ireland with our begging bowl out. Cosmopolitan Remainers would have this country bankrupt if we'd listened to them. Brexit economists were largely making politically driven forecasts, they get so much wrong you can't possibly quote them with a straight face.
Is that why he won the Champions League twice with Porto and Inter Milan hardly chequebook there , oh yes thats twice more than Arsenal ever have won it
