I don't mean relegation , that is never going to be an option for the board. That is when the manager gets replaced if that is a realistic scenario.Agree with your general point but there's no way Moshiri is going to 'accept' £500m of his money sinking into the 2nd tier and out of the richest league in the world when there's a new stadium still to be financed.
If you honestly think that no manager in the world could have put out a side to beat Brentford or Watford then I don’t really think it’s worth continuing the conversation to be honest. Ante Semudza managed to get his Slovenian team that’s existed for 9 years and has a weekly wage bill similar to what we pay rondon per hour to beat Spurs but there’s no way we could have? Ok mate.
The problem is they are the three that will be sold. Nobody is taking Rondon or Iwobi off our hands.You can only polish a turd so much.
Sure, you can argue Benitez should be polishing the turd better, but regardless it remains a turd.
The players we have are turds. There's about three I'd keep in the whole squad, the rest need flushing.
I don’t think anybody is disagreeing that this squad is woeful and rammed with lazy, cowardly footballers with a loser mentality.No, a new manager would get them challenging for CL football easily. It’s just that Koeman, Allardyce, Silva, Ancelotti and now Benitez couldn’t do it. But the next bloke definitely will, nothing wrong with the squad.
The board will underestimate how hostile it could turn and how quick.
Looking at that fixture list - I wouldn't bet against panic sacking of Benitez around Christmas, with Ferguson thrown in.
It's all they've got now. Injury crisis is abating, same players that Ancelotti had available apart from James and Sigurdsson and they were terrible according to the Benitez fanboy society, can't be Benitez because he's boss, so, £1.7m ad nauseum.Oh god.
Not you too?

Has he? This is a squad that still includes players from the Walsh/koeman days. These players are a collection of multiple manager appointments, and Brands doesn’t appear to have much say. So it’s a bit harsh saying he built this squad.Was watching Roy Keane earlier and a lot of what he said about Utds players rang true regarding us.
"Leopard doesn't change its spots"
"dont work hard enough off the ball"
"dont run and run and run some more"
Brands has built a squad of mentally suspect players.
They were playing against a 26 year old centre half that was playing for Northampton Town a year ago.
Yes I understand that, but that squad we have is ridiculously unbalanced and, more importantly, consists of players either finished, are mercenaries and/or complete cowards.
Brentford to a man have more application and desire than Alex Iwobi or Michael Keane will ever have.
All we're seeing now is the exact same thing we've seen for years but the odd decent player we have that usually bails us out is missing. Ancelotti had shocking performances week on week but he had Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison on the pitch instead of Rondon and Iwobi. That's the difference, and it's a massive one.
I think we are bottom 5 come the new year. Can't see him keeping his job tbh.
Anger at that point, IMO, needs directing at Everton's board. Clowns.
