Spurs: Why I would say no to David Moyes
There are many contenders to be the next Spurs manager and one man that is being touted to take over from Harry Redknapp is Everton's David Moyes, however I am going to be analysing why he shouldn’t be Tottenham’s manager.
One of the reasons is that throughout his reign at Everton he is yet to win a trophy, therefore as he lacks the winning mentality I think he is not the man to take Spurs forward. I would even dare to suggest that choosing Moyes would be a backward step and would take the club into mid-table mediocrity; just when Spurs have the chance to become a big force in England challenging for trophies.
How would the players respond to Moyes? Would he be able to command the respect of the big players at White Hart Lane? Yes I know people say that he would be able to do this as he has been manager at Everton for 10 years but he has never won a trophy in that time so will he be able to control so many big players at the lane such as Modric, Bale and others? If he didn’t get on with these players I could see them all leaving and then we would be back to square one. I think these players would want a bigger name.
Furthermore, the way he sets up the Toffees not to lose also fills me with trepidation, as I fear he would bring that belief here. This would be unacceptable to the Spurs fans as it would betrayal of the style of free-flowing, attacking football that we have been known for throughout the 125 years of the club.
Moreover I didn’t like the fact that he went to Anfield last season and sent out a second string side as he wanted to keep his first team players fit for the FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool at Wembley that they lost despite prioritising the competition.
The other names in the frame to be the manager of Tottenham Hotspur are Andre-Villas Boas, Roberto Martinez, Fabio Capello, Rafa Benitez, Joachim Loew and Ralf Rangnick! If you don’t agree with me and think that Moyes is the right man please don’t hesitate to get in touch, however if you do agree with me get in touch and tell me who be your choice?
My preferred choices would either be Andre-Villas Boas, Roberto Martinez or Joachim Loew as they are all young, hungry and play football in a style that I would perceive as being the Spurs way.
