Spurs fans should be happy to have David Moyes is their new boss

Since Harry Redknapp left Tottenham Everton boss David Moyes has been linked with the vacant hot seat at White Hart Lane.

However, it seems that a lot of Spurs fans are not keen on the Scot succeeding Redknapp.


I have read numerous forums and websites with Spurs fans complaining that David Moyes isn’t good enough for Tottenham.

With all due respect Spurs fans it was only Harry Redknapp that brought you to this level before his arrival your side were in midtable obscurity for years.

Not so long ago Everton were a consistent part of the top six in the Premier League. The man responsible for that is David Moyes.


Tottenham fans are acting as if they are Manchester United, Chelsea or even Manchester City. Your club finished three places above Everton last season and you didn’t win any trophies. The difference is your club had better financial resources.


If David Moyes was given any money to spend at Goodison Park Everton would probably be competing with your team for a place in the top four. David Moyes consistently manages Everton to top ten finishes, despite the club hardly spending a penny.

The Scot has a worse budget than some Championship sides, yet season after season he produces results at Everton. Most of the players that he has brought in for big money have been a success. You only have to look at the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Nikica Jelavic for evidence of that.

Then you have the likes of Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines and Tim Cahill who have all turned out to be very good value for money. When people say that they don’t think Moyes can handle a bigger budget I would point you in the direction of those players to prove he knows how to spend money wisely.


Spurs fans biggest concern seems to be that David Moyes’ style of play won’t be to their liking. Moyes has been stereotyped as a cautious boss. However, that is out of necessity sometimes because of the lack of resources available to him.

At times during Moyes reign Everton have played some fantastic football. I’m sure Moyes does want his sides to play attractive football and if he had the resources available I’m sure they would. This is the man that brought the likes of Mikel Arteta and Steven Pienaar into English football, two of the most creative players in the English top flight.


Moyes seems to be one of the favourites alongside Wigan’s Roberto Martinez and former-Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas for the Spurs job. It seems that the failed ex-Chelsea boss is Spurs fans favourite for the vacant position.

He is a promising young coach but his time at Chelsea has proved that he may not yet be ready to manage in the Premier League. Martinez has done a good job at Wigan but he has far less experience than David Moyes.


I’m not so sure David Moyes would definitely take the Tottenham job. The Scot is set for a summer meeting with Everton chairman Bill Kenwright about his future and what his summer budget is likely to be.

I think a lot will depend on what happens at that meeting. If he is told that he has a summer transfer kitty then I believe he will decide to stay at the club and continue to build a team at Goodison.

However, with just one year left on his contract if he is told that he hasn’t got money to spend then I think he may just take the opportunity to leave the club. Without investment it’s very unlikely that Moyes can take Everton forward.


To all those Tottenham fans that don’t want David Moyes as your manager get real. I have heard Tottenham fans talking about Pep Guardiola coming in at White Hart Lane. That is just ridiculous talk. The former-Barca boss is already believed to have spurned Chelsea, so why would he join Tottenham?

Tottenham would be lucky to have a manager with the Premier League experience of David Moyes. Be careful what you wish for Spurs fans with highly-rated foreign bosses, remember Juande Ramos? I rest my case.

Would David Moyes be a good appointment for Tottenham?

Villas-Boas has been touted to be the next Spurs boss. Moyes, in my eyes, is more suitable for the job, but who knows?
