Worked wonders at Everton
Although things haven’t worked for Moyes at either Manchester United, Real Sociedad, or Sunderland, the Scotsman worked wonders at Everton, whose situation somewhat resembles that of Villa’s.
The 54-year-old often got the Toffees in and around the European spots despite spending little money or having the quality and talent of the so-called bigger sides.
And given that Villa spent a small amount of money over the summer, and were often needing to sell before they bought, the situation certainly appears similar.
Yes, the Championship is a different challenge to the Premier League, but being able to get the best out of the squad was one of Moyes’ biggest achievements at Everton, and that experience would stand him in good stead at Villa, regardless of what’s happened since then.
