With Ronald Koeman confirmed as Evertons new manager, what changes can fans expect? Mario Melchiot knows his compatriot well and also worked with predecessor Roberto Martinez at Wigan. Adam Bate spoke to him to find out how the two compare... I really enjoyed his training and the way he prepared during the week, recalls Mario Melchiot. He brought me back to what I was used to at Ajax from the age of nine to 21 and that was a joy. He wasnt a fan of just running, he wanted us to run with the ball. So even if we were working on our fitness it didnt feel like working.Melchiot might be reminiscing about the brief time he spent with Ronald Koeman. But instead its not a fellow Dutchman to whom hes referring. Its the season that the former Chelsea defender and Netherlands international spent with Roberto Martinez at Wigan. He has fond recollections of Martinezs methods. He brought me back to what I was used to at Ajax and that was a joy. Mario Melchiot on Roberto Martinez I spent a lot of time with him and we had a good understanding, Melchiot tells Sky Sports. At that time I was the captain so he gave me quite a lot of responsibility. I enjoyed that. I liked him a lot and with his philosophy of the game he understands it well. He did analyse in a way that was different to what I was used to. Hed talk to players differently.It was interesting how hed work on players individually. Sometimes Id speak to him and wonder about it. When I was upset, hed be really calm. Id ask him, Whats going on? and hed just tell me not to worry. Id be wanting him to show some fire. But then thered be other games and he would show it. So I was trying to figure him out.I liked the way he was playing because it was all about passing the ball out from the back. But sometimes when it doesnt work out, you need that gritty side when its going against you. I think at the end at Everton, people were questioning him about it because the results werent going so well. Mario Melchiot alongside Clarence Seedorf and Robin van Persie in 2007 Given that Melchiot sees much of the Dutch style in Martinezs way of working, theres a certain irony in the fact that Everton have turned to Koeman to turn the clubs fortunes around after a bottom-half finish. His fundamental ethos is similar. Koeman is a Dutch coach with the Dutch mentality, says Melchiot. Thats all about playing football.I worked briefly with Koeman when I had to stay fit for the national team as I trained with Ajax when he was the manager. He was super nice and treated me really well. I know roughly how he works and there are a lot of similarities between him and Martinez. Both coaches are good people-coaches and players like working with them.Perhaps the key difference is that Koeman has shown another side to his management - the grittiness to which Melchiot refers. Southampton suffered eight defeats in 10 games either side of Christmas, but while Martinez was unable to arrest Evertons slide, Koeman turned things around dramatically. Saints picked up 39 points from their last 18 games. Anyone can deal with winning because theres no pressure but how do you react when you lose? That might have been decisive in getting him the job. Mario Melchiot on Ronald Koeman Last season there were ups and downs but you saw his character, says Melchiot. If you can lose games and then get it back on track thats key. Anyone can deal with winning because theres no pressure but how do you react when you lose? That might have been decisive in getting him the job. He knows how it feels to not win and then change things.One of the big changes that Everton supporters will want to see is in terms of defensive organisation - something that was so sorely lacking during the latter stages of Martinezs reign. With Koemans Southampton boasting a far better record in this regard, theres cause for optimism and Melchiot believes the coachs own defensive nous could be an advantage.He was an amazing player and brings a lot of experience on that side of things, he adds. As a manager, what he wants is to get the team balanced. Hopefully, as a defender, if John Stones stays he can learn a lot from him at the back because the gaps that Everton were leaving at the back were exposing the central defenders. Comparing Koeman and Martinez in the Premier League since 2014 If he can manage to make the team a little harder to beat again and keep the players who can change games then Everton will be back where they want to be. I dont think the team needs to change a lot because I like that team. Everton are not a team thats crumbled and needs to rebuild because it has a lot of problems.Everton need to go to the next stage. They need to get back into Europe and then compete for those Champions League slots. They maybe just need a change of manager. Id have loved to see Martinez take them to the next level because I enjoyed working with him. But now its Koemans chance. Everton fans will be hoping hes different enough to seize it.

Co-owned and trained by David Menary, Hes Watching will be driven by Tim Tetrick and is the 5-1 fourth selection in the field.Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week they discuss Kyle Lowrys All-Star blessing, Coach Q, unheralded undraftees and leaving the NFL playoffs alone. Cathal Kelly, Toronto Star: My thumb is up to the 14 NBA coaches who decided this week that raptor Kyle Lowry doesnt deserve to be on the All-Star team. Theyre wrong, of course. Badly wrong. According to reports, the player who pipped Lowry for the last bench spot was Brooklyn Nets forward Joe Johnson. Lowry is out-averaging Johnson in every statistical category - including rebounds - and Johnson is seven inches taller. In making this mistake, however, those coaches have done Raptors fans a huge service. From here until the end of the season, Toronto not only has the best point guard in the East, they now have the most motivated point guard in the East. Steve Simmons, Sun Media: My thumb is up to Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks, who this week moved up to No. 3 on the all-time list of coaching victories in the National Hockey League. Its impressive enough to make the top three. Its even more impressive when the only coaches ahead of you in wins are named Scotty Bowman and Al Arbour. Quenneville, for some reason, doesnt get a whole lot of attention, doesnt make a lot of headlines, rarely gets mentioned for coach of the year, which he won once more than a decade ago. But here he is behind a nine-time Stanley Cup champion and a four-time Cup winner. And nobody else. Yeah, hes an all-time ggreat.dddddddddddd And when have we ever said that about Joel Quenneville? Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: My thumb is up to Edmonton goalie Ben Scrivens, for impenetrability. Scrivens stopped a record 59 shots in a shutout of the Sharks, a dash of good news in a city unaccustomed to seeing a goalie make 59 saves in a week. Scrivens stellar game underscored the notion that goalies dont need pedigree. Undrafted out of Cornell, Scrivens once played in the East Coast Hockey League. Ex-Calgary Hitman netminder Martin Jones of the Los Angeles Kings, also was undrafted and played in the Coast as did the Rangers Cam Talbot, out of the University of Alabama-Huntsville. Another thing they have in common: among NHL goalies with at least 12 starts, they are one-two-three in save percentage. Dave Hodge, TSN: My thumb is down to the likelihood that the NFL playoffs will be expanded to include 14 teams, up by two from the current 12. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones delivers the argument for more playoff teams this way: "How exciting is it for fans of a .500 team to see that team in the playoffs with a chance to win the Super Bowl?" Well, heres whats more exciting - two teams like Denver and Seattle, with 13-3 records, showing off their season-long excellence at the Super Bowl. Jerry Jones needs to improve his team, not the League. But the guy in charge of the league, Roger Goodell, supports the idea of more playoff teams, thus more playoff games - get ready for wild-card "week".
