It seems almost crazy to think now that David Moyes at one point in time was not just considered a good manager, but one of the best Everton’s ever had.

The former Toffees boss guided the Merseyside club to the top-six no less than five times during his 11 years at Everton as records from the Premier League’s official website show, and Moyes often regarded fondly now by supporters, yet since leaving Goodison Park, Moyes just hasn’t been the same.

Failing to live up to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United has seen Moyes bounce around the likes of Real Sociedad, Sunderland and West Ham, with the former Preston North End centre-back being relegated to the Championship with the Black Cats and iNews dubbing the Scotsman as the Hammers’ ‘worst manager in club history’.

Indeed, it has all gone downhill for Moyes since leaving Everton, which is why rumours of a return to the club to replace Marco Silva as reported by The Mirror have caught some fans off guard, and former winger Kevin Mirallas also believes that the former Toffees boss will make a goof replacement for the under-pressure Portuguese manager.

The Belgian international said to The Athletic via The Express: “It’s also not easy when you change a lot of players every season. You need time. I don’t know if it would be a good thing (if Moyes came back) but I do know him and, for sure, he’d do a decent job.”

Although it would be poetic for Moyes to return to Everton and to steer the sinking ship back to safety, the Scotsman is simply not the manager we once knew and adored on Merseyside, and appointing him will be disastrous.

This is a manager who set Man United down the spiral of depression they are still on now and took a historic side like Sunderland down a well of despair that they too are also trying to climb out of, and installing Moyes as Everton boss with the club in the relegation zone will be too risky a move for the Toffees to make.

Moyes left the club in a good place back in 2013, but returning to them now could doom Everton to a dark spell in their history, and one that supporters could never forgive the Scotsman for.

  • This is a poor article. The Man Utd team that Moyes inherited was the worst ever to win the league. It was falling apart at the seams and with the poisonous Ryan Giggs stabbing him in the back at every opportunity, he stood little chance. Sunderland were well into their ‘spiral’ when hee took over and with virtually no money available they were already doomed. As for West Ham; he did the job he was asked to do and saved them from relegation. Real Sociedad was the only failure that most genuine football supporers would place solely at his door. Having said all that; I’m not a fan of returning ‘prodigals’ so I would not want to see him appointed.

  • Totally irrational article, a dire need for some application of intelligence. David Moyes achieved wonders with the incredibly restricted budget at his disposal when he was with us before. I read that his net spend during his tenure was £2.85 million per annum! Now applying some logic, a much larger budget will increase his chances of improving on what he did before. We have somebody in now who has had much more spent on players whilst he is here, yet he has managed to take us right down the table. I know his style was hard and on the defensive side, but having sorted out our defence he will have much more at his disposal to make us an attacking threat too. He was not given much of a chance at Manchester United and other places, but when given time he does deliver.

  • He competed last time at goodison with no money, took us to Wembley , had us in Europe, different story now the club have a few quid to let the manager improve his squad. I would love to see him back.
