Just been reading Everton have now withdrawn their compensation offer to Watford, interesting hmmmm.

Agree1 Disagree3

18 May 2018 20:43:13
Is this a new offer or the old offer from January?

18 May 2018 20:46:28
They were offered ample compensation, they refused. They sacked him. If there was a case to answer it would have been answered in Feb not now. Cheap attempt by Watford to extort money over their own mismanagement.

18 May 2018 20:55:04
My take on this it was for £1 mill which was rejected by Watford, but Everton have now withdrawn that offer because Watford apparently tapped up Marco while at Hull and have a document to prove it.

18 May 2018 21:59:18
according to the Times we have proof that Watford tapped Silva up while he was the Hull Manager I wonder how we got that piece of evidence.

19 May 2018 11:04:28
BLUEY79: I wonder - nudge, nudge - wink, wink.
If Watford want to play hardball, I’m sure we have people who can mix it with them!

19 May 2018 11:37:55
I'm at a loss why we should pay them anything anyway they had their chance and rejected our offers so that should be the end of it.

19 May 2018 12:57:10
I'm sure we will sort something out and Silva will be announced maybe next week get him onboard and we can start to plan for next season.

19 May 2018 19:08:56
All of this is irrelevant. Watford sacked the guy it is as simple as that. His 30 percent win record is the reason. All they are trying to do now is cite Everton for his failure. Absolutely ridiculous. If anyone tried that with you, me and any organisation or person of nounce they would fail. Incidentally if Evertons so-called involvement affected Silva, he is not the man for us.

19 May 2018 22:02:06
Everton made an approach for silva which wad rejected by silva but we still have to pay comoensation after he was sacked? Yet moyes admitted he was approached by alex ferguson directlyly who said he wanted moyes as his replacement and yet we don't get compensation. I know moyes let his contract wind down but surely i must be missing something here? We made an offer which was rejected. Our manager was argubly tapped up yet and yet we are offering compensation?

20 May 2018 16:21:18
I don’t think Silva was actually sacked as such, I’ve read a few times on here that he was replaced but he’s still on the books and collecting his monthly wages.

So I’m guessing that’s why they want compo and why there is some confusion about why we should/ shouldn’t not pay it.

18 May 2018 16:43:59
Are these Usmanov rumours drivel, regurgitated paper talk and recycled rumours or may there be some substance to it?

Agree0 Disagree1

18 May 2018 18:53:32
Could be. There’ll be a lot of s*** over the next few weeks with no footy to report on. And with no manager and cash to burn we’ll be all over the rumour mill.

19 May 2018 10:16:56
BLUEY79: I wonder - nudge, nudge - wink, wink.

18 May 2018 16:33:35
Is anyone else a bit relieved we didn't finish 7th? I know we would have had a European place but I think our season would have suffered again with the July start and all the newly discovered optimism would have evaporated before the season really began.
I'm actually really looking forward to next season now, there was a moment when I did regret renewing my season ticket and was not looking forward to the 180 mile round trip to watch the drivel we have seen this year. COYB!

Agree6 Disagree0

18 May 2018 17:08:19
Seems weird to say it. But yes ToffeeAl. Also getting into Europe would probably mean Allerdyce would be staying. The team isn't his apart from 2 and they've performed better than most. All things considered that's not actually hard to out perform the rest of the team. Tosun yoy can't really moan at because he didn't get the support.

18 May 2018 21:15:57
Relieved we did not finish higher, of course not. I support Everton Football Club and wish them to do the best they can every season. Forgive me but by saying relieved we did not finish 7th is surely akin to saying we have no ambition to conquer the top six and finish consistently in the top 4.

18 May 2018 22:25:56
Totally agree TL, said this last year Watch Burnley struggle next season because like us not a strong enough squad.

19 May 2018 08:32:22
Spot on TA we struggled last year and the second year under RM. Europa league is a joke of a competition if you have to start mid July and don't have a massive squad.

19 May 2018 10:19:09
I’d love to finish higher, BUT missing out on the UEL next season might be a blessing in disguise while the club settles into its new structure.

18 May 2018 16:27:54
I see usmanov rumours starting again. There must be something in this as it’s always raising its head. No smoke without fire. We have over £100m to spend with our new Brand.
I think then our new coach whoever it is can concentrate on coaching.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 May 2018 10:20:36
No hard evidence yet, just speculation.

18 May 2018 07:35:17
It's Silva. Brands has been "stated" as saying that's who he wants too. Couple of weeks he'll be announced. So I wouldn't keep wondering who it might be. It's Silva.

Agree2 Disagree9

18 May 2018 08:20:55
It's good that both owner and dof want the same person as manager. Hopefully a united front all working together to make the club great again.

18 May 2018 11:30:51
To the people who Thumbsed down. Are you saying in talking rubbish or disagreeing with the fact that he's coming.

18 May 2018 12:14:21
Not sure why it would take a couple of weeks. Silva has been out of work and the club must have known Sam was leaving. Let's get it done and the team working on recruitment.

18 May 2018 15:52:06
Probably the compo with Watford holding it up.

18 May 2018 17:18:01
The club courted Brands for two years it would be naive to think that a conversation to that end had not happened months ago about which manager he wanted obvs behind closed doors🙄
Big C.

18 May 2018 20:34:40
Is this the same people who stated Brands wouldn't be done for 3 weeks?
Don't take it personally but I think a manager will be appointed much quicker.

I'd assume there was a major problem if it took 3 weeks to appoint a coach who is out of work and available. Perhaps with today being quiet, the new boss isn't as clear as we think?

Maybe a few more applicants are yet to have a meeting with the the club? Makes more sense than the club knowing who they want but having to wait 3 weeks to announce.

18 May 2018 23:55:43
OllBlue. That's exactly why it could take a couple of weeks. Watford have complained to the F.A. About tapping. What makes matters worse. Kenwright "supposedly" told Watford that we wouldn't persue Silva in the summer. It's been a week since the prem season ended and we already made contact. Upset Watford even more. They going all out to reap massive compensation. With the sacking of Allerdyce and his staff, keeping Watford sweet. It's going to cost in excess of 30 million to get Silva on the books. So be better be good lol.

18 May 2018 07:31:04
I've read an article a couple of days ago saying Brands is all for Silva. So it looks like it's Silva. Moshiri isn't shy. Silva will be announced in a couple if weeks it says.

{Ed025's Note - that works for me mowfee mate..

Agree1 Disagree2

18 May 2018 07:41:08
I think people don't like the fact he tried to jump ship and join us only after 11 games at Watford. I think people are worried he'll do exactly the same to us. His "supposed" track record says he only stays at a club for a year. That's the other factor I think people fear.

18 May 2018 07:44:48
I imagine that the managerial situation is complicated - and various events have needed to be completed in a certain order (e. g. getting the other changes - DoF, CEO, etc., - sorted, resolving the Watford compensation, etc. ) , BUT I hope that wheels are already in motion behind the scenes regarding player retention, recruitment and release.
Notwithstanding what the new DoF/ Manager might decide once they've had a look at the players during pre-season - or what opportunities to trade may arise late on in the window - I’d hope that most of our transfers are done and dusted nice and early.

18 May 2018 11:41:36
I’m ok with Silva he will need the time and support for him and brands to adapt the team he is one of the 3 I would say possible
Silva is the more likely
Emery would be the reach but still possible
And Rafa would be the experienced seasoned manager.

18 May 2018 20:12:57
bobbyc I respect your post mate but I also fail to see what legal grounds Watford are working on. They sacked Silva with the bloke having a 30 percent win record, that is down to him and his staff not Everton. Bloke crashes his car because you told him to turn left, didn't he see the 'no entry' sign, he was driving.

18 May 2018 22:27:07
ducksflysouth: I don’t know - I’m just speculating, but there are reports that Watford have officially complained about Everton’s behaviour and Everton want this resolved amicably before signing up Marco Silva - PLUS he wants his compensation package for being sacked settled with Watford.

18 May 2018 00:48:47
I am not sure who I would want to get the new managers role but with Fonseca being out my shortlist would be:
1 Emery
2 Benitez
3 Silva.

Agree1 Disagree1

18 May 2018 06:59:11
that's my order as well although I will back whoever comes in our club needs backing and stability.

18 May 2018 07:04:15
Emery for me but I have a feeling it's Silva.

18 May 2018 08:05:29
We, the fans, have our own favourites for the Everton manager’s job.
Our opinions are valid and honestly held, but are based on limited information.
Objective statistics - like win percentage, trophies won, etc. - are obviously important, but they offer no guarantee that such success would be repeated at Everton. Whoever is appointed, there is a risk.
There are other aspects imho (many being behind-the-scenes) of being a football manager - man-management, player development, motivational skills, recruitment, relationship with club hierarchy, media relationship, personal ambition, etc., etc. - that we don’t necessarily have much knowledge of as fans.
I just hope that the club are genuinely sussing-out these factors as they interview the candidates and that the club makes its hiring decision based on a rational long-term plan and not merely some romantic short-term wishful thinking.

18 May 2018 10:18:33
Good post. But I don't think we actually are interviewing candidates by the sounds of things which tells me silva is already done and dusted. Once this legal noncence is sorted he will be announced.

18 May 2018 16:29:42
My choice never gets mentioned here or on radio/ television in the betting so I expect some abuse here but here goes.
Gary Rowett, I also like the Huddersfield manager even if he if friends with Klopp.

{Ed025's Note - i have to say dark clouds that i think you deserve loads of abuse for the gary rowett shout mate, but i think david wagner is a decent shout..

18 May 2018 18:17:43
Tbh ed I think Gary rowett is going to be a good manager, was unlucky to be sacked by Birmingham but think it's way too soon for us. He is also an ex player of ours (only 4 games if my old brain remembers correctly) so surprised he hasn't been mentioned more. I do think Silva is nailed on tho.

{Ed025's Note - me too geoff, gary rowett may indeed become a good manager but at this time i would not be happy with him as our manager mate..

18 May 2018 20:16:44
Wagner is a cracking shout. Seems to me though that the man has totally bought into Huddersfield and appears to be a genuinely loyal person. Have to admit, even though I have criticised him, Martinez totally bought into Everton and left with dignity. If only he had addressed the build foundations from the bottom strategy we would not be in the position we are now.

17 May 2018 09:20:10
Usmanov. any Ed's heard he might sell his shares in Arsenal and join Farhad saw an article in a Dutch newspaper. Will lose my shift*it if he comes this summer as well.

{Ed001's Note - no sorry nothing.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 May 2018 09:43:26
just read that myself Berkshire imagine that ha ha.

17 May 2018 09:55:50
Saw this article apparently we have a hundred million to spend in the summer and maybe even more. Apparently money is no object. Moshiri is not a mega billionaire unlike Usmanov whose name keeps cropping up he can't get a look in at Arsenal despite the money he's invested and must be envious of the way Evertonians have taken to Moshiri so Alisher why not join your mate Farhad up here at Everton I think I can safely say on behalf of all Blues youd be more than welcome!

17 May 2018 16:18:28
He could give himself a private berth next to the new ground. His boats as big as the Isle of Man ferry.

17 May 2018 16:43:38
It will happen.

17 May 2018 17:20:47
Yes think it will happen, but he has 51% now, don't he?

17 May 2018 19:05:34
who has 51%?

17 May 2018 19:21:08
Yes Lee you are right, but a lot here just can't see where the gift came from?

17 May 2018 22:46:00
As a past Everton manager stated recently ''theres no smoke without fire ‘’Sam had that one right anyway, looking like 'Peter’ Usmanov may be coming on board, let's hope so.

Wiltshire’s is a big no from me, we’ve been down similar roads recently . let's go for some real class with no lingering problems, as a past manager stated recently 'quality not quantity '

18 May 2018 17:01:42
Moshiri has 58% bought out woods.

17 May 2018 01:25:58
Marco Silva,

Reading through Wiki he has a career in management full of peaks and troughs from being sacked for not wearing the official club suit at Sporting to drifting in and out of clubs for personal reasons! Hardly the type I would be sure of for the future . and of course Watford are not happy bunnies at the moment . still cannot get my head around them blaming us for approaching them with £12million compensation or have we missed something regarding an illegal approach? . not something Everton of the past would be guilty of .
There are other managers out there that maybe are a safer bet. Fonseca?

Agree4 Disagree0

17 May 2018 06:19:26
I read up on his past. Not just wiki though and I kind of got the same impression. It wasn't all bad though. I did read he was a brilliant for settling teams. He supposedly befriends the payers individually and he's one for doing training set pieces on throw ins and excuse the term used here but all the little things.
But I will admit I've got all my fingers crossed for Fonseca too haha.

17 May 2018 07:47:45
fonseca has or is signing a contract extension at Shakter so wipe him off the list I think it's out because emery or Silva with Silva being the favourite.

17 May 2018 00:00:58
So the decision has finally been made. Allardyce has gone, it is the correct decision moving forward, but I personally Thank Him for doing what he was brought in to do. He kept us up! But He has been paid megabucks to cover the cost of his "holidays", which is obscene (£6m) .

Now I am seeing and hearing the same as the rest of the Blues Fans with regards to our new Manager possibilities. it seems that marco Silva is still the favourite although Fonseca is also on the radar and he apparently has turned down an approach from West Ham. Pellegrini would be a backward step in my opinion as would Van Gaal.

But there is another name out there who is actually available (I think) and he has a great pedigree apart from a short stay disaster in Russia a couple of seasons ago. Unai Emery, ex coach/ manager of Seville in Spain, leading them to UEFA Cup success and more recently as the coach/ manager of PSG in France working with the likes of Neymar and Cavani.

We have to appoint a younger man with more modern tactical ideas and I know that Mourinho actually rates Marco Silva very highly, if that means anything? The new Manager needs to be in place very shortly to be able to sit down with Moshiri and get the transfer targets sorted etc so that we aren't playing catch up when the new season starts. Some players will be shipped out and we have quite a few youngsters heading back after being out on loan. so their situations need sorting, and the new Manager will obviously want/ need to take in the World Cup in Russia with a view to possible signings.

Should be interesting over the coming weeks but let's hope that once and for all we finally begin a really bright future for our Club. we have been in the doldrums far too long, but you have to earn success and we haven't been good enough for many years! We need to unearth another Howard Kendall. PLEASE! COYB.
