    No, nobody has ever won the PL with two different teams.

    Jose is the only one to come close.

    Ah, in that case no... although Kenny Dalglish won the antepenultimate First Division title 5 years before leading Blackburn to the Premier League... whilst Brian Clough, Herbert Chapman and Tom Watson are the only other managers to have won the English top division with more than one club.

    Yeah I was talking all time, rather than when the Prem started. When Newcastle came 2nd under Dalglish there may have been the faint possibility that he’d have become the first to win it thrice and I think Batty would have been the first player in recent memory to win the top division three times (do let me know if there are any already!)
    If Mourinho achieved either with us I think it would also secure his legacy, as we’d be much less fancied than the clubs that those that Pep or Ancelotti has taken to titles or CL. You know he’d never stop reminding people about it too!
    To be honest if Ancelotti took Everton to CL that’s a bigger achievement than winning the league with City on my book.

    Not with the amount of money they spend it wouldn't.

    Even with the money spent I’m sure the odds on a City winning the league are shorter than Everton coming top 4.
    I also think wage bill is a better barometer for expectations, especially for teams playing catch-up as they can’t generate sizeable income against their spend by offloading players. Everton will be around 7th, probably not that far away from plucky Leicester and west ham.

    Everton have had a higher wage bill than us in recent years

    If I were to take over a team at the level they were 3 years sho when they started spending money, I would have done it completely differently.

    West Ham with their signing of Bowen and releasing Wiltshire instead of giving a new contract might finally have learnt the lesson and start to follow our blueprint.

    Some signs that my local side Brighton are also following our blueprint. Though they still like their speculative long shot foreign 19 year old signings from the Austrian second division etc.

    Everton behaved not so much like a lottery winner but a scratch card winner.

    Brighton went out and appointed a quality coach which make a big difference
    Everton went for names without a strategy. When they got Koeman they should have gone for Sean Dyche... but he wasn’t a name they thought was big enough

    Also a very good director of football not that can get them off their punts on unknowns from lower league European leagues. But I think that is blooms hand in it.

    Started out as a poker player but has online businesses as well. Worth a pretty penny.

    Tony Bloom is one of the good owners in the league.
