Always remember this story about Stuart Pearce when he was caretaker manager of Forest.

“He admitted in an interview with Match of the Day that, in his first attempt at picking a starting XI, he did not realise until it was pointed out to him by his wife that he had omitted goalkeeper Mark Crossley.”

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuart_Pearce In the club career section. Not sure about his coaching or managerial credentials but fair play to his honesty! I remember seeing the interview because he was well chuffed with the team until he showed his wife! :lol:

Managed to grab a quick word with Pearce this evening in the FA lounge . My comment went along the lines of knocking the back four into shape and them not shirking a pass .his response was short and concise. There’ll Be no shirking and slacking, not on my f’ing watch. A shake of the hand and off he went . Had the look of a man ready to get stuck into the opportunity presented to him.

Given the main requirement from our left backs will no doubt be to stop crosses coming in rather than pressing forward, it will be interesting to see who grabs that spot. If anyone knows anything about that position, it's Stuart Pearce. I've an idea he won't really rate either.

Everton have always had good full backs under Moyes.
Moyes and Pearce could be the making of Cresswell and Byram.

Bilic going could be the best thing that ever happened to Byram

I really like Sam, know he is injured at the moment but hope he gets a prolonged run of games to show us all what he can do

All reputable coaches, and that's what they've been employed for. I'm not exactly jumping around with excitement, but to level criticism at them for managerial failings is harsh. Being managerial material takes a special type of person, how many excellent footballers who were captains of there clubs and seen as role models in the dressing room absolutely bomb in management.

Hopefully they can make us a bit more solid and we'll go from there, unfortunately at the moment steadying the ship is the situation we are in.

In my limited experience, just retired at 59, there are coaches/trainers who do not know how to manage and I have had good managers who would not have a clue as to how to take a training session.

Moyes has been a good manager but the sunderland job has not done his CV any good but at least over time at Everton he always seemed to have an organised team.

If he can get his ideas into the coaches mind and they can communicate these ideas to the players then that is where I see the balance.

We must give them a chance, get behind them and offer as much support as possible.

By the way Moyes would not have been my choice but he is here now and I hope he is a success

Dress it up any way you like,but if you had 11 players with Pearce's attitude on the pitch,you'd probably win the league.I'd rather have him in my tent pissing out.

He's not trolling he is stating a fact they did indeed all have shitty records at their most recent place of employment. 99% of bubbles500's posts have a negative twist even when he is joking around, either ignore his posts or respond realizing his temperament doesn't make him a troll per say.

Yes, absolutely, morning noon and night and twice at weekends...

I'm comparing absolutely anybody who is at hand in house and who can step in immediately as opposed to have to be recruited involving some delay...

Assistant manager...
Fourth official...
It really doesn't matter who they are or what they do, it's the idea of them being already there so able to take over the instant that something goes wrong that I'm talking about.

Nothing more esoterically challenging.

I've heard that Alan Irvine is meant to be one of the best in the business. The main reason he failed at WBA was due to being too much 'one of the lads' and why he's back coaching.
