Looks like it's going to be Silva . He isn't my choice but what do i know but it got it right with RM and RK . if it is him i hope he proves me wrong i really do because it can't imagine what will happen to this club if they get it wrong AGAIN they need to think long and hard and get this appointment right this time round or this club as we know it will never be the same.


1.) 05 May 2018 07:49:03
can I ask why you are so sure it's Silva because I'm starting to believe Sam will still be in charge next season.

2.) 05 May 2018 09:33:39
Who would be you pick skylark?

3.) 05 May 2018 09:43:41
Whoever the manager is all the fans need to give them time we still have 75% of the Moyes defence big changes are still needed. If it’s Silva I wouldn’t mind we all desperately wanted him before he got same as Fonseca. Howe is interesting there’s it if manager out there not just the ones in the media. My preference would be Young a positive approach to every game an one who believes any team he manages can win the league. And my number one would be one who will indulge himself into Everton like Roberto Martinez did.

4.) 05 May 2018 21:42:30
Well if it is SAM bluey it's time for FM to go as well.

5.) 05 May 2018 21:43:28
Not a clue Preston it's one of the great wonders of the world 🤔.

6.) 07 May 2018 13:44:19
If the same people at the club who made such a balls-up of the Koeman change last autumn are now handling the current DoF and manager situations, then it’s no wonder that there’s no apparent clarity let alone progress.



27 Apr 2018 18:20:08
If Sam is aloud to be incharge next season questions need to be asked about FM, new stadium or not I'm afraid.


1.) 27 Apr 2018 19:42:50
I don't doubt his ambition and plans off the field but on the field is crucial and I'm not sure he knows enough to make the decisions for us as a team to go forward.

2.) 28 Apr 2018 10:44:00
If sam stays it all about saving money mate so for me stadium?, I won't be happy till they start working on it?

3.) 28 Apr 2018 11:13:59
If Sam stays we should change the projected stadium capacity to 20 -30k because even then we will struggle to fill it with his style of play.

4.) 28 Apr 2018 12:03:25
Nice BW.

5.) 28 Apr 2018 22:10:08
Not really sure what our supposed fans want. Finally Winning and still not happy. It's not like pep or klopp are going to join us so who exactly do you think is going to turn us into title challengers? Players aren't Sam's aside from Walcott and tosun who have been a success so imagine what we could be like if he gets rid of the rubbish Martinez and koeman brought in! The football isn't pretty but its practical and I bet everyone complaining would have simeone who's also plays anti football. Rant over.

6.) 28 Apr 2018 22:50:29
Simeone plays counter attack football and actually has players on the pitch who can attack and are instructed to attack when in a position to do so, our forwards sorry forward is that isolated he goes in the wrong dressing room at half time because he doesn't recognise any of his own team.

7.) 29 Apr 2018 06:21:54
Not really there is only griezmann with any pace. you can't seriously tell me you think athletico play nice football? Plus Sam never bought the players he has been lumbered with. None have pace aside from Walcott and bolasie and bolasie is probably the worst winger in the league! I'm not Sam's biggest fan but credit where it's due. Teams always do worse once he's left so we need to be careful what we wish for.

8.) 29 Apr 2018 14:44:01
Wasn't really having a go at Sam more like FM i just think if Sam is still here next season it's not really moving the club forward and see it as another year wasted just don't think the club is being run properly we don't seem to have a plan of any kind and think a boardroom clear out is needed especially the DOF how he has been aloud to stay and not be sacked along with RK i will never know.



22 Apr 2018 20:42:09
After the recent terrible decision to do a fans survey on Sam i think we are going to struggle attract a top manager once again the club mess up.


1.) 22 Apr 2018 21:00:15
Disagree skylark, first it was a handful of online posters and the press taking note, then dismissed two away games of fans discontent, now he’s blowing up about the survey because he knows it will not come out him smelling of roses, had we had a great season, Sam would have welcomed the survey.

At least this way, they are getting hardened season ticket holders giving their point of view and hopefully will take action on it.

The only other options were banners and demonstrations at matches, With the survey at least it is done in house.

This is one Sam will not be able to blame onanyone else.

2.) 22 Apr 2018 21:13:19
Skylark you're buying into the media bull mate. As bignev says if Allardyce thought he'd done well he'd welcome the survey. Club has done nowt wrong other than not realise how devious Allardyce can be.

3.) 24 Apr 2018 00:06:27
Don't see what the big deal is it happens in many professions. I'm a support worker, my service users take surveys to give their thoughts and opinions on me. Don't see much of a difference. Okay there is more importance and significance on mine agreed but as for negatives and getting prissy, d onto see the fuss.



21 Feb 2018 13:39:00
Raffa is coming blues . from a good source?


1.) 21 Feb 2018 15:12:55
Rafael Nadal? I know he is a great tennis player, but can he play striker or left back?

2.) 21 Feb 2018 20:53:48
If he does come over he will be the second manager to of ever managed both Us and Liverpool. The first ever manager to do so shares the honour of being the first manager of both teams. He is William Edward Barclay.

3.) 22 Feb 2018 13:41:00
It did come from a good source grumpy if it's true or not we will soon find out . I would have him all day but do we agree on this one?

4.) 22 Feb 2018 14:09:40
I 100% agree on this one Skylark mate. I think he would be a great manager for us and he is capable of moving us a lot closer to the top 4. I just hope it's true.

5.) 22 Feb 2018 17:33:07
I would be welcome to that.

6.) 22 Feb 2018 22:46:38
I wanted him after we got rid of Martinez and would still have him now, the man is a winner, remember this is a fella who won the Champions League with a piss poor Liverpool side!
Give him a project and the backing and we will be playing attractive football and challenging the top 6.

7.) 23 Feb 2018 11:41:58
Good shout folks Rafa is an excellent manager.

8.) 23 Feb 2018 13:27:44
Fully agree GB mate he was my first choice when RK got sacked.

9.) 23 Feb 2018 17:58:28
Defo mate, but beware the dreaded thumb down lol.



22 Oct 2017 18:53:22
Do any of the eds know know who it was exactly that wanted Ronald koeman in the first place which member of the board or was it a joint thing . not having a go at them I was just curious.


{Ed025's Note - he was highly sought after at the time skylark and even barca were looking at him mate, i think that may have changed recently though..

1.) 23 Oct 2017 14:00:14
Goal.com reporting koeman sacked.

Said it last game . say it again still think we got rid of Roberto to early 😀.


1.) 06 Jul 2018 21:05:52
He was a nice guy Roberto but anyone who claimed Aiden McGeady was "world class" is obviously delusional. He's done well for himself though on the international stage. Our attacking of teams was good to watch under him but if he only had a defensive answer then we'd probably still have him. He was a revelation in the first season but it got toxic at the end of his tenure.

2.) 06 Jul 2018 21:24:56
I will give you that . But on another note how annoying is Rio Ferdinand he has to be the worst pundit for me on TV.

3.) 06 Jul 2018 22:54:03
Given the players that Belgium have it does not take a great manager to do well with them. Maybe the appointment of Henry is the reason for there success.
I believe that Belgium will win the world cup but that does not make Martinez a good club manager.
Look at Coleman with Wales great with them but rubbish with a club.
They are different jobs completely and Martinez happens to have great players at the moment nothing to do with him.

4.) 06 Jul 2018 23:49:00
Lawro has got to be the worst 🤯 burns my head out him.

5.) 07 Jul 2018 07:26:26
Martinez is a good cup manager but not a league manager.

6.) 07 Jul 2018 09:05:45
100% right there Smit. In a short competition like the WC with limited games there’s not much time to suss out a team. But in the prem his tactics become apparent and then exploited.

I will add that the players at his disposal are pure class so expecting similar results given time at Everton would be a little optimistic.

7.) 07 Jul 2018 09:22:09
I think he is probably a very good coach. But I wanted him gone almost immediately because after Moyes's reign whereby we constantly signed good young players who were either in our 1st team regularly. or sold on for big profit, Martinez's reign started signing ageing players who just could not cut it. I don't know how much of a role the manager plays in signings, but is says something to me when our best 3 defenders are still Jags, Coleman and Baines. and Moyes went ages ago now. Moyes also bought a few other good defenders such as Neville, Oviedo, Mustafi etc. We have bought and sold defenders since that have quite frankly been poor. eg Alcaraz, Mori, Williams, Keane, Martina. Then look at the quality of players we have sold on from Moyes time. Fellaini, Arteta, Stones. Yes I know that Martinez bought Lukaku and I agree he was a great signing. but hardly any of Martinez's players now feature and these are mainly the ones we are trying to move on. I am not saying in this post that Moyes was great or anything. before people start on me. because like I say I don't know how much say the manager has in negotiations, but since his time our signings on the whole have deteriorated. Maybe something else changed? But no one can argue that we have a better squad now than when Martinez joined. Especially after he signed Lukaku.

8.) 07 Jul 2018 09:55:12
I said it with a bit of tong in cheek . But got talking instead of everyone having a moan 😀🍺.

9.) 07 Jul 2018 12:54:11
Glenn Hoddle for me. Some of his comments, especially about Spuds players are comical.

10.) 07 Jul 2018 13:34:23
Everytime I see your posts Degsy, aka David Moyes biggest fan, I think I've sat in a DeLorean and knocked the dashboard to 2013!

11.) 07 Jul 2018 14:03:13
But tell me BJU which players we have signed who are better and either still with us or alternatively we have had good use of and then sold for big profit. Like I said in the post, I am not saying it is down to Moyse and likewise I am not blaming Martinez soley. But up until 2013 we regularly signed playes for 60 grand, 1.5 million, 2.5 million etc and then used for some seasons and sold on for huge profit. Since 2013 I only see that story in Lukaku. Perhaps Walsh? Perhaps others are to blame? But I am only stating facts.

12.) 07 Jul 2018 14:24:45
I have done a billion times and even put all of the stats of one v the other. One of the ED's even told you about the finances of Moyes but you still chose to ignore it.

Can't you just leave these types of discussions and talk about something new. You sound utterly nutts. Like completely and utterly crazy. 🤪.

13.) 07 Jul 2018 15:57:27
I remember I think ed001 pointing out that moyse spend was the equivalent to 5th but we finished 7th,6th,5th oh and lower. The money in the game has gone mental over the past half dozen seasons so buying someone 5 years ago and selling them after almost always shows some profit, even if they flop. This has to be taken into consideration when comparing transfer fees.

14.) 08 Jul 2018 08:40:08
In reference to the punditry: I think both channels have some awful punditry but I really can’t stand itv. Don’t mind BBC as Lineker and one or two of the others (never Shearer or Jenas) normally talk sense but itv is normally a let down. Pougatch is good as the anchor as he did a great job on radio before but find the majority of the regular panel unbearable at times, especially Wright, Keane and Aluko. The rest seem ok but are let down by those few. Much prefer the views of players like Fabregas, Zabaleta, Scott and Drogba.

15.) 08 Jul 2018 17:39:17
Agree with Dark Clouds, I am not the only one I know that has said consistently of Martinez (when Manager of our Club) that the man is a coach and certainly needed a DoF such as Brands. If that had happened who knows how we would have done. International Coaches already have proven National Talent to choose from.



02 Jul 2018 21:05:58
Still think we got rid of Roberto Martinez to soon 😀.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 09:51:56
Fine margins eh?
I was 15 minutes away from posting a mocking joke about how the Spanish FA would not be offering Brown Shoes the national job. now I'm not so sure.

I actually won't lie. I was in favour for his appointment. I liked his anti Moyes style that had been so reliable but also oppressive. I liked him from his Wigan interviews.
He seemed to have a higher repect from players on the continent, and had success in the transfer market (or am i only thinking of Lukaku? )

That 1st season was our best for decades. I remember Pulis saying we played like Barcelona. We had a dirty secret. It was all built on DMs hard task management.
Brown Shoes bought some much needed flair and belief and bolted it directly to the hardest working (if low in talent) Prem side. We broke our points record by a country mile in the Prem era.

It all looked so good and then the timespan increased and naturally the
DM DNA faded away. And all of a sudden we were one of the least fittest teams that played attractive football but not attractive enough to paper over our short comings.

He was found out as a lazy coach. A coach I would have loved when I was playing, because I'm lazy too and only liked training with the ball.
We went from consistently scoring late winners as teams faded against our relentless spirit. To no hopers that would easily slip into relegation battles.

He's a real chance to make the world take note. He has a brilliant squad with Belgium and a dream tie. Hero making opportunity. Brazil have been there for the taking since 2002. If Bobby boy can pull off a win he will surely put his Everton wobbles behind him and leap frog into the top level of the game. Maybe nice guys do win?

2.) 03 Jul 2018 14:38:36
Good post, shame we couldn't fuse the good dna of Moyes football with the good dna of Martinez bottle that up!

3.) 03 Jul 2018 15:09:19
I wasn't on for his appointment at Everton and still think he stayed longer than needed. Imho as was said on here before he is suited to international managed better than Premiership management. He proved that by winning the cup with Wigan. He may prove it more with Belgium. As for Premiership I don't think so.



29 Jun 2018 18:15:38
Let's not all start getting on Pickford's back it's starting to sound like Ross Barkley your going to drain his confidence leave him alone he has years ahead.


1.) 29 Jun 2018 18:49:55
Brilliant post Skylark. Totally agree.

2.) 29 Jun 2018 19:25:29
For all his faults one thing yiu could say about Martinez is he was good at putting his arm round a player and boosting his confidence
Alas there seems to be a few out there that get on a players case far to soon let’s be supporters not detractors.

3.) 29 Jun 2018 21:17:34
Always said the bloke is a coach not a Manager (we are talking here about the Premiership and Clubs with huge Squads. Give Martinez a Club the size of Everton and he is lost.



23 Jun 2018 13:57:43
Anybody else think Belgium could just win the world cup.


1.) 23 Jun 2018 15:17:37
They are certainly in with a good chance, the so called big guns have yet to really step up not sure how they will stand up to them.
If I was a betting man I would throw a fiver at them.

2.) 23 Jun 2018 15:31:05
I think this may be the year for an unusual suspect to come away with the cup. Belguim have a fairly strong all round sqaud with some top top players whp are experienced npw so ye they certainly could.

3.) 23 Jun 2018 15:32:00
If Lukaku had a top first touch he would be unstoppable. Still needs work on that.

4.) 23 Jun 2018 15:39:16
With Martinez in charge? No.
They are always going to concede and against the elite teams are they going to create enough for Lukaku.

5.) 23 Jun 2018 17:05:54
Mexico nice little outsiders, are they the Leicester of the world cup.

6.) 23 Jun 2018 20:05:19
I got 150-1 on Mexico before their first game so I hope you're right johny.

7.) 24 Jun 2018 13:02:30
I actually think Martinez is brilliant at cups. Plus he is not the players main coach (club level) So they way he ruined us wouldn't happen quite the same at international level. He was great in the first season with us and won a cup with Wigan. I believe the internation game suits him much more.

8.) 25 Jun 2018 09:21:19
still conceded sloppy goals against Tunisia, let's see them against a decent attack, same can be said for us.



22 Jun 2018 17:55:16
What tactics formation and style of football do you all think silver will have us playing next season i know it's a bit early and we haven't got the players he wants yet but just wondering what we are going to see at the old lady we we have something to smile about or will it all be a bit cagey.


1.) 22 Jun 2018 18:54:59
I think by what I've read 4-3-3 is his formation choice so hopefully Lookman and Walcott will thrive up and down the wing. The three in midfield should hopefully include Sigurdsson as a number 10 because that's where his class truly shows. I think and I hope we'll play a high energy press and in the faces of opponents but he has stressed the importance of defensive organisation and so I feel our play found be very adaptable. Since Roberto, I feel as if we never attack the big boys and being so reactive has left us with some really poor results. With additions at the back and possibly a new midfielder to go with Gana, I feel like we'll take he game to the bigger teams more. Would love Goodison to be rocking again.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 19:06:16
His track record has been attacking so I think / hope the days of two DMs at home are over. I would say three at the back but he’d end up playing there himself at the moment with Funes Mori going.

I’d personally like a back three at home with Coleman and Robinson/ AN other as wing backs and a three with Gylfi in the middle of them behind Tosun. Not sure who the three would be because Williams is shot, Jagielka needs to be phased out next season and I’m not convinced at all by Keane. Gana in front of that as a CM, Lookman, Gylfi and Walcott then Tosun up top.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 19:19:32
Was thinking very similar joe.

4.) 22 Jun 2018 19:28:19
If we go with back 3 would anyone use Coleman as right cb? Similar to England using walker. Gives Kenny rwb role knowing Coleman has pace behind him to recover.

5.) 22 Jun 2018 22:41:15
Like the idea of that GJ but dare I say it but I’d like to think that we’d have a bit better than Kenny in that spot but I’m all for giving the lad a go!

6.) 23 Jun 2018 07:36:36
Doesn't have to be Kenny. That's just who we got atm.

7.) 23 Jun 2018 07:55:27
He likes to play 433 or 4231. I see Gana fitting into a 4231 but unless he disciplines himself i fear it will be Schneiderlin playing a lone DM.

8.) 23 Jun 2018 11:11:17
I hate a back 3, usually concede more with more defenders. Winds me up haha.
