Could David Moyes be the next Tottenham boss?

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is expected to take control of the England national team at the end of the season, that means that Spurs will need to find a replacement for the veteran bosses job.

The English newspapers are now linking Everton boss David Moyes with the position.


David Moyes has done a fantastic job at Everton on a tight budget. Everton have punched above their financial weight under the Scot, achieving a top half finish in seven out of the ten seasons Moyes has been at the club.

When Moyes arrived at the club Everton were relegation strugglers. In fact the Toffee’s were in the relegation zone when Moyes joined from Preston ten years ago. He saved the club from relegation in his first season and since his arrival Everton have been regulars in the top six of the Premier League.


Moyes celebrates ten years at Goodison on Wednesday. In that decade he has proved himself to be one of the brightest young coaches in Britain. At 48 years of age David Moyes is still young in terms of Premier League bosses, yet he has gained an incredible amount of experience.

He has recently revealed to journalists that he has made mistakes in those ten years but he has attempted to put those mistakes right. Moyes is a very honest and intelligent guy.


Moyes has shown incredible loyalty to Everton in the last ten years. The Scot has been linked with numerous other positions in the Premier League but has stayed at Goodison Park. He has a passion for the club and you get the sense he feels he has unfinished business on Merseyside.

For all the stability he has brought to Everton, he is yet to claim silverware. Everton face Sunderland at Goodison in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup next Saturday. Moyes seems hopeful of claiming his first silverware at the club this season.

If Everton do the unthinkable and win the FA Cup maybe David Moyes will feel like it’s time to move on to another club. It could just be a fitting finish to Moyes’ Everton career.


It remains to be seen if David Moyes is high profile enough for the Tottenham job. Although Moyes has been relatively successful at Goodison Park, the fact he hasn’t managed in the Champions League may convince Spurs to look elsewhere for their next boss.


David Moyes is regarded a very defensive minded coach. His teams are usually well organised and set out. His teams are usually hard to beat, full of hardworking players. Maybe this has been because he hasn’t had the resources to play a more attacking style.

At Tottenham though they expect a certain sort of attacking style. Tottenham would have to adapt their style of play or Moyes would have to adapt his if the Scot became the Spurs boss.


Any boss would be silly not to consider the possibility of taking over this exciting Tottenham Hotspur team. Tottenham are regarded as the team that have played the best football in the Premier League this season.

The quality of the players available to the next Tottenham boss is exceptional. No doubt if all their top players stay at the club this summer then Spurs will be title challengers next season. I’m sure the opportunity of taking over Tottenham would be hard to turn down for any ambitious boss.


David Moyes has always been ambitious and he wants to win trophies and be successful. The Scot is desperate to be successful at Everton. He has built up a team on Merseyside and he has revealed that he would be disappointed if somebody else came into the club and benefited from his hardwork.


Although it’s presumed that Harry Redknapp will become the next England manager, it’s not certain. Redknapp will find it hard to leave behind such promising foundations at Tottenham but if he does then I’m sure David Moyes will be a very good replacement for the veteran boss.
