Sky Sports News 1st July 2004 10:00 am Merseyside Blues.

Everton’s Torrid summer continued today as Toffees manager David Moyes walked out of the club.

The former Everton boss said he was sad to go but didn’t feel the club had any ambition if all it could do was sell its top players.

Many people feel the terrible league performance and the power struggle in the back of Goodison also added to his decision and have demanded Bill Kenwright to hand over club affairs to someone capable of leading the team forward.

A few of Evertons mistakes

Sold Wayne Rooney to Manchester Utd 20 mil

Sold Francis Jeffers to Arsenal 8 mil

Sold Duncan Ferguson to Newcastle Utd 7mil bought back within a year for 3.8 mil

Sky Sports News 11th July 2004 10:00 am Another mistake by Kenwright?

Everton supremo Bill Kenwright may of made his last move as Everton chairman today signing rookie manager Chris Cook, A Preston youth scout as the new manager of Everton FC.

The new manager has never even been incharge of a football team and looks set to be the final bit of the catalyst that will make Everton’s premiership status Crash and Burn

Toffee TV 11th July 2004 12:00 pm Meet the manager

Dave Jones (interviewer): Hello and welcome to another addition of Toffee TV. I’m your host Dave Jones. And today we give u an exclusive first interview with new Everton Manager Chris Cook and Toffee veteran Duncan Ferguson. Welcome to the show

Chris Cook: Thanks for having me

Duncan Ferguson: Nice to be here again.

DJ Now Chris this is your first ever management job and you’ve been thrown into a bit of a warzone at the moment. How do you feel?

CC Well to be honest being a Everton fan I really wanted to follow David from Preston to the club but things never went that way. This is like a dream job for me and I hope to prove the faith shown in me by Bill to the fans. As for the war it has to be said these things happen. Rooney was going to go whether we liked it or not and David was under so much pressure because of it I can see why he needed a break.

DJ Duncan, I know its only been a couple of hours but how do you feel about your new manager and the loss of David?

DF David was a great manager, and although I had a few falling outs with him, I think the club, players and fans will all miss him. But these things happen, and hopefully it wont affect us too much. We just need to go out there and do our jobs to the best of our ability.

DJ Finally Chris, what are your plans for the new season.

CC Well we have a bit of cash to spend on a player or 2 but we are very limited. I think the first priority is to look at the squad and decide on where it needs boosting the most.

DJ Well guys. Good luck on the new season and hopefully we’ll see you in here again soon.

Managers log 11th July 2005

After the press conference I decided to look at my first team and choose who to let go and who to keep

The Team

Goalkeepers

Nigel Martyn: Number 1 choice despite his age. May be replaced if Wright does well

Richard Wright: Slipped from number 1 but a lot younger that Martyn, probably first choice for next year

Ian Turner: Young keeper. Has a promising future

Defenders

Alex Pistone: Good Right back but may find it hard to stay in team with Hibbert around

Alan Stubbs: Strong in the centre, may need replacing soon

David Weir: Strong in the centre, may need replacing soon

Joseph Yobo: Great hot player, must keep at all costs

Tony Hibbert: Young right back, will put Pistone under pressure

Gary Naysmith: Only real left winger, hopefully will do the job.

Midfield

Li Tie: Good midfielder, will be used mainly as sub and cover for Gravesen

Thomas Gravesen: Head of the midfield. Needs to sign new contract

Leon Osman: Good young AM.

Kevin Kilbane: Left winger, rotation with McFadden

Tim Cahill: Another good looking AM

James McFadden: Young winger, hopefully our main danger down the flank

Attackers

Marcus Bent: Really the only striker in the team. Needs a good partner

Nick Chadwick: Still young but not quite first team material

Kevin Campbell: Needs to go, wages too high

Duncan Ferguson: if willing to take a pay drop will keep.

This leaves me with 10.25mil to spend and a few players to loose.

My main priority is Defence and Attack.

Sky Sports News Thurs 15th July. Ferguson parts with toffees.

August

I’m feeling the pressures of being a premiership manager already. Loosing to Chelsea and Man Utd is understandable but when it comes to loosing to Crystal Palace, then something is just not right with the team.

Our first match of the new month is against Norwich and is a must win match. Arsenal is up next in a match I’m dreading followed by Birmingham in another must win match and Sunderland in the 2nd round of the Carling Cup.

Our transfers seem to be more out than in with 8.75 mil going out and only 1.2 mil in but hopefully I picked up a few Gems in the bargin bucket which should help the team next month

Toffee TV

E=Editor

CC= Chris Cook

DA= Dean Ashton

E: Welcome to another editon of meet the manager here on Toffee TV. Today marks the 4th year of mr Cook reign at Goodison park, which has had its highs and lows. So Mr Cook, how are things going?

CC: they're going great, i think this may be the beginning of our push for europe and silverware. We have some great lads in the team now and we've had a great start to the season.

E: Well we've had a few up and down seasons at Goodison, what has been your best and worse moments?

CC: well without a doubt the worse has to be when we got relegated in my first season incharge. But they say sometimes you have to go down to get better and we've proved that, We went from struggling in the premiership to being a top 10 contender in 2 seasons.

My best moment would have to be our 27 game unbeaten run in the championship, sure we're a big team but at that time we'd lost a lot of good players and it was nice to see the team rebuild and re-gel together.

E: now Dean was one of the biggest assets to your promotion chase and is still a big feature in the team today. Where do you see yourself with Everton as the team grows from strength to strength?

DA: Well as you say, i'm still a first team player even with 2 of the best strikers in the premiership in the starting line up. Zurawski has mentioned retiring soon, and although i know we'll miss him, its a great chance for me to make it into the team. After all, if i become as good as him, thats money saved on signing a new striker.

E: well thanks for your comments, we hope to speak with you again very soon.

Fixture flurry

Everton Manager Chris Cook today joined the growing ranks of managers complaining bout the FA's tight fixtures for the month.

Evertons match against Manchester United was persponed due to Englands European championship qualifying campeign and giving the toffees a 2 weeks break but they were repaid by having to play they're next 6 games with less than 4 days break between each match

"I can't see how the FA expect us to have a fit team if we're playing so oftern. You don't see the FA suspending matches so we can get ready to play Man Utd and then give England 4 internations in less than 2 weeks."

Nowt wrong with Diouf, he got MOM after all icon_wink.gif

That one lasted ages

I felt the year had been going well so far. And so did Bill (Kenwright). He After our chat about the past month i started to get ready for todays match with Birmingham. But as i left he had one thing to say.

BK Oh Chris, Don't forget to congradulate young James (Milner) for being the first Everton youngster in a while to win the young player of the month award for 3 months in a row.

CC He won again? blimey, the kids on fire at the moment

BK Yes he is. And i'm sure your award will come soon too.

Well we've been drawn to face Either Southend or Lincoln (sounds like a certain league two playoff fixture lol) away in the 3rd round. Personally i'd like to face Lincoln and return to my home town for the day.

Marcus Bent today left us to join Preston on loan for 3 months. He's been getting fed up of being on the sidelines, and i think he just needs to prove himself to potential buyers as i don't see him winning a new contract this year.

Richard Keys Well its time for one of the Premierships biggest matches of the season. Its the Merseyside Derby.

Everton host Liverpool in a battle for pride more than anything really, with Liverpool down in 10th. But before we go to our match commentators. Lets get a few words from Everton Manager Chris Cook

CC Hello Richard, nice to speak to you again

RK So Chris, how do you fancy your chances today

CC Well lets face it, We're comming off a good run, and Liverpool are struggling this season. we're at full force. I think we can go out and win this one.

RK Well your team are in a potential champions league position. Do you think you can hold on?

CC Well football isn't a predictable sport. Who'd think a team that was relegated 3 years ago would be doing so good now? But i feel if not the champions league then europe is a real posability for us

RK Well Chris, thanks for your time, and good luck in today match.
