|Here's Moyes at USMNT practice|
Anyway, Moyes is now the manager of Real Sociedad. So yeah, he's the new coach of this guy - also known as "The Vela who Came in From the Cold".
But more importantly, Moyes is bouncing back from the haunted-by-Fergie mess that was Manchester United by boldly going where few foreign coaches have gone before - Spain. It may not be as exotic as Bob Bradley in Egypt, but La Liga isn't a common route for English speakers, either. The Scott has pluck and guts and tactical knowledge as well.
Plus, Moyes will be coaching my blonde cousin, Sergio Canales.
Seriously, though, I do have roots in Basque country. My father's grandfather, so the story goes, was Basque.
|Already speaks Spanish!|
It won't be easy for Moyesey, though. When I was in San Sebastian, I was a bit floored by all the Euskara in use. The menus in some places didn't have translations into Spanish. I can understand quite a bit of Catalan and Portuguese, so when I hear those languages, I can generally follow a simple conversation, but the Basque language is an isolate one, so I can't draw on the Latin roots of Spanish at all to help me.
If Moyes needs help with his Spanish, though, or if he wants a handy, skilled player who picks up new languages well, I do know one that might be available for a new adventure. Moyes has counted on him before, too.
