Over the course of the weekend, one article caught my eye. With a massive London derby against the Arsenal a couple of hours away, you would be forgiven if you thought it was about the game. It wasn't. It was an article in The Telegraph stating that David Moyes had now become a serious contender to take over at Stamford Bridge. As you can imagine, it got me thinking.

When you think of Moyes, you think of a disciplinarian, someone who looks like he takes no crap from players but at the same time he is someone that the players like, look up to and want to play for.

All his sides are hard working with a focus on teamwork and playing as a unit. They have some big names at Everton but no one person stands out as a "Billy big spuds" there, they are toe the line and play for the manager and each other.

Moyes is very selective in players he wants. They have to be of a certain type and if they are and he has managed to sign them, they normally do well for him and the club.

So what of the link between Moyes and Chelsea? Could David Moyes really have the attention of Abramovich? Is this just a link that has appeared in the press due to the fact that his contract is about to expire at the end of the season?

Moyes has been as loyal as can be to Everton. If reports are to be believed, he has no intention of talking about a new deal until the January transfer window closes because first and foremost, he doesn't want to lose any of his players. He wants to see stability at the club and credit to him.

It's common knowledge that Moyes has worked within a shoestring budget (compared to most) at Goodison and just look at what he has achieved! Imagine what David Moyes could do with the backing of Roman Abramovich?

I guess with all Chelsea managers these days you have to wonder about whether or not he is right for the job and how he could deal with working under the restraints of how the manager manages here.

Would he be happy for the club to continue to make "club signings" and to work with those players even though he may not have wanted to sign them? Would he be happy in not having total control of the playing side of the club?

Or, could someone like David Moyes negotiate having exactly that control and influence at the club after all the comings and goings in the past?

Harry Redknapp set the standard for me with British Managers being given a crack at one of the top sides. We do not see it often enough in our game and the Premier League. Instead, we opt to look abroad to being in promising or established managers to take over. Redknapp was given a chance and made a real success of it at Spurs (whether we like to admit it or not).

I have said it before, these days you need to be just as good at man managing your players as you need to be tactically aware and looking at Moyes he fits the bill perfectly.

I personally hope that Moyes IS a serious contender but it remains to be seen in the coming weeks whether or not he actually is!
