I agree with you that we got the better man between BR and JM, however I do have to give the Spaniard some credit. Yes Wigan are in a relegation fight every year, but in all honestly, and I mean this with respect, Wigan Athletic have no business being in the prem, let alone surviving every year.
On the clash of styles I think that is a valid point however I do think part of Moyes' success is he always found a little bit of quality for his side in the likes of Baines, Pienaar, or a Mirallas. Its that type of player who is just a little more creative that separates them imo from the WHU or Stoke's of the league. And, it's likely it those kind of players (an any like them emerging from the youth system) that will be first to go as they can, and Everton may need the funds those kind of players can attract.
But that is the second point where I have to give Martinez credit. Yes most talk about his style of football, and how he's calm under pressure come the business end of the season, but I think his biggest attribute, and what Everton will need most, is what he does in preseason. Consistently he finds those under-priced diamonds in the rough. They may not all be top draw players, but good enough to add that quality which is the difference from surviving in the prem, and going on the long slide to the lower divisions.
