Well Martinez is supposed to be this great manager that should be at Manuireor Barca lol lets see what he does with a top 6 side in the premier league, i think he will keep them mid table ish tbh they have good players and a good scout network so he will be ok imo

Good news for us, you can add Everton and Stoke to the relegation battlers from next year.

Mystified on this media love in for Martinez, I'd be distraught if he took over Villa. Apparently he has done well at Wigan as he has to sell his main players - well I can't see it being any different at Everton.

He'll be sacked before Jan. 15.

Martinez is a 50/50 for me. Barring being in serious shit, he has a couple of old reliables to save his neck in 'a season of transition' and 'he'll be alright once he brings in a few of his own players'.

Brendan Rodgers might be in trouble if Liverpool get off to a bad start.

Moyes overachieved with everton so the new manager will be under pressure to do the same. Add in the likelihood of Fellaini and Baines leaving, an aging squad and limited money available to rebuild. Agree with Holte that he could be gone by jan.

His win ratio in the epl is just 25%, I think he will struggle.

One thing that surprises me is managers being promoted from within the league. The PL seemed to have done away with that, drafting in foreign managers like Mancini rather than looking to grow their own. Managers in other leagues worked their way up and were then brought into the PL leaving a glass ceiling for British managers. I hope that Moyes succeeds with Utd so that more British managers get a chance.

Can't see Everton being able to switch to 3-4-3 very easily without baines or Fellini either. Losing moyes is a massive blow. 11 years is a long time to be at the club, the players are settled under his regime, the whole squad only know the moyes way. The wrong guy in charge could easily cause a mutiny and if changes are made too quickly it could disrupt them. Luckily Martinez seems to get on well with his players, it's a great step up for him but could go horribly wrong.

They have too much quality to go down, but he may change things too quickly like the mighty Lamberto

Its kind of funny the same people here who more or less called Wigan a mickey mouse team who have no right in the league are saying Martinez is a bad manager because he couldnt sort turn them into Mid table nobodies...

Wigan get how many fans a week, 15 at a push? They have the cheapest tickets around and have managed to keep it together in the league for 8 seasons... They get hardly any wage or transfer budget and have lost the best player every year... And he's managed to keep them in the league with fuck all investment in the team all while playing good football...

Unfortunately for him unless he keeps them top 6 year after year they will say he has underachieved... I dont think he is a bad manager at all he started the Swans revolution dont forget...

They had around 50 million reasonswhy they should have ended up higher than the newly promoted teams. As soon as one of those teams (West Ham) had a bit of money, they were gone. Because he looks nice in a suit, and he seems a nice guy, the guy seems to be the darling of the media.

We will now see what a "great" manager he really is. I predict Everton to finish roughly where we are this year, he will then have a bad start tp the following season, and will be gone.

Co-incidence that Bruce got Wigan to upper half, left, has now brought Hull up and swapped positions with Wigan, I don't think so.

Steve Bruce say no more... A poor mans Mark Hughes that lad... Id certainly have Martinez over him and Id take him at Villa just to see the look on Holtelowers face when he posts it on the board...

I hope Martinez goes to Everton and is a disaster, and they finish bottom, then take any two of the three coming up also going down and we can look forward to building our club into one of the great teams in the premier.

If his name was Robert Martin would he get half the hype?
