Dose anybody else feel like we are lumbered with silver how are we in this position how badly run is this club how come we can all see it except the them incharge.


1.) 26 Jan 2019 22:09:17
Brands is good, Silva is not, if Brands is as good as I and others think he is, he will swallow and say pay him off. Not pay him off.

{Ed0333's Note - what?



26 Jan 2019 20:27:36
Right, the board, the manager brands, the coaching staff, the whole lot of them is the problem. this club is a shambles and an embarrassment sack the lot.


1.) 27 Jan 2019 00:39:42
And then what? If you sack EVERYONE as you suggest, there won't be a club left to support.

{Ed033's Note - Well, Everton might be left with the ground staff and the tea lady. :)

2.) 27 Jan 2019 00:53:28
Sadly I agree but not possible but Silva for starters, thought he should get the rest of the season but after that mess today sacking now is not soon enough, there is no excuse.

3.) 27 Jan 2019 10:01:54
We can always put the tea lady incharge edd.

{Ed0333's Note - don’t be silly skylark the tea lady would play Richarlson in his natural position.



26 Jan 2019 17:38:58
Could be the end of our season today could be the beginning of the end for silver hope I'm wrong on both can't go today unfortunately so armchair today it is for me.


1.) 26 Jan 2019 19:30:54
Sadly you are right.

2.) 26 Jan 2019 19:40:34
Eddie Howe.

3.) 26 Jan 2019 19:40:39
Should be, but it won't be I'm afraid. Never been a fan if Silva, but have him a chance. He's small fry, Martinez number 2. Got relegated with hull (admittedly half a season, but with mainly small players he knew) . Sacked at watford. So obviously going to take us to the next level?!?!?!
Some woukd argue, but possibly individually the best group of players we've had in a long time. It's not working for him. Maybe a step too high/ far for him. But Moshiri and Brands seemingly were desperate for him, so can't see him going anywhere soon.
Absolutely embarrassing.

4.) 26 Jan 2019 19:42:56
Not been a good season but still think Silva should be given another season at least if he doesn't work out then we need to seriously this about managers 3 managers 3 failures overwise.

5.) 26 Jan 2019 19:50:16
Are we still paying Sam awake, justa thought, tongue in cheek.

6.) 26 Jan 2019 21:03:16
Just watched match I agree on posts on here the worst I have seen us play were do u start defending like a pub team going forward didn’t have a clue chances on goal I could of done better were were a shambles imagine if we played like that against one of the big teams we would of got whooped don’t care how much it takes get rid of silva before it gets worse or can it get worse we have talanted players but no idea under silva carry on playing like this we will b dragged into relegation fight.

7.) 27 Jan 2019 00:08:00
Completely agree with how poor we are, no leaders, no identity, no ambition. I am not saying, I am for or against Silva. I simply don't know any more. But realistically blues, who else is out there. who else can we get with better ideas, tactics, plans etc. it's a hard life being a blue.

8.) 27 Jan 2019 00:56:38
We could still go down do not think we will, the problem is who can you get at this stage of the season, well the best manager we have had in the passed 2o years is out there Davey Moyes.
Ready for all the complaints off you people with short memories.

9.) 27 Jan 2019 15:44:36
I would have Moyes back. Never the most exciting play but we punched above our financial weight, now we throw money away. I remember when at the end of the season and we would be in the top 2 or 3 on least goals conceded, that was a long time ago now.



19 Jan 2019 21:48:26
So now brands is looking like a bad appointment i have heard . And to be honest just who has he got in so far . And before you. Shoot the messenger I'm just repeating what I've heard.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 22:03:48

2.) 19 Jan 2019 23:25:33
Where have you heard this, Skylark?

I personally think the business he has done so far is brilliant (incoming particularly - I sympathise with him in his effort to remove the deadweight as it must be quite the challenge) .

Gelling a team together takes time, I'm more than happy to bide time until the summer and see what he can do with another full window - when buying/ selling is a smoother and less extortionate process.

3.) 20 Jan 2019 09:52:10
Hard to argue with that H a N D. I think his signings so far have been good. None of them are the finished article, but you can see the potential.

4.) 20 Jan 2019 15:09:14
Brandts deserves more time as his hands are tied by having to get rid of so many bad signings before we can really spend. Silva on the other hand is crap as he does not get the best out of the players he has.
A good manager should get the best of what he has at his disposal, even if the squad is not good enough to win things. Silva does not, for me he should be gone at the end of the season he should never have got the job.
I must admit however that I still believe the players we buy should be chosen by the manager and Brants job should just be to get them.
This idea is a thing of the past sadly so the manager has to make the best of what is made available to him.
Please Mr Moshiri get some new advisors on picking managers as you have failed so far all have failed as I predicted.

5.) 20 Jan 2019 21:10:14
But who has he brought in that's any good? I am only asking.

6.) 20 Jan 2019 21:43:08
Skylark mate brands and Silva can't be judged on one transfer window as they where left with this lopsided overpaid squad and are still trying to get the dead wood out the door which is no easy task there first transfer window was good even if they are performing poorly know and there seems that there's no chance of us signing anyone in this window due to are need to offload some of the dead wood but that might not be a bad thing considering how High the transfer fees are in January how much we shelled out for tosun 27 mil I don't think he's a 27 mil player I like him as a player but he was some what over priced. I think knows the time to trust in brands and his vision and give Silva time as constant change is no good for us or are club.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 00:02:21
But hasn't silva just made it more lopsided? We haven't really strengthened where we need it? i.e striker. I also don't understand where people get the idea from silva was a good manager in the pl he got relegated with hull and then had quarter of a good season at Watford?, all of a sudden we want him? If he was successful he wouldn't think twice about leaving us anyway.



01 Jan 2019 23:43:41
Well I'm sorry but silver is on borrowed time and it's a terrible appointment we made and will set us back at least 2 years AGAIN and Everton have wasted so much money over the past couple of years it's embarrassing.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 09:38:05
Let's hope we get a good F. A Cup run starting with Lincoln on Sat.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 10:45:35
Silva isn't necessarily the problem, its the lack of continuity and the need for results. We have completely changed the way we play yet have only changed a few players from last season. The only way we will know if Silva is a good or bad appointment is if we give him the time to get the players in capable of playing the style of football he wants us to play. That assuming he can even get them in the time scale that allows him to keep his job. Looking at the top teams it has taken about 2/ 3 seasons for a manager to develop a team capable of challenging the top 6. Have we got the patience to allow Silva the chance to try? If not then we will be back to square one whinging about being in the top ten but not being able to compete with the top 6.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 11:27:13
Omg hear we go, cry in to spilt milk, absolute rubbish talk again, we don't have a striker, we can't score goals, 17 shots at goal, was it 2 on target, that's why we lost, 60% of possession, we are doing all good things, but just cannot finish them off. Once we get a striker things will change.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 11:41:24
Have people forgotten how bad we were last season? . Wasted money on signings. Sorry but last transfer window was the best we've had in years. Another 2-3 windows like that and silver/ brands will have the team they want want/ need to hopefully compete with top 6 sides. yes we need to strengthen in a few positions but you can't buy a whole team in 1 window. Keep the faith blues. I for 1 am 100% certain we have the best dof and manager we could attract at this stage.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 13:52:37
Without consistency in the style of play then unless the player is brilliant then there is a fair chance that they will not look as good and may seem like money has been wasted when a new manager with different tactics and style come in. I do think the current team has a great deal of potential and should be given the chance to show what they can though.

6.) 03 Jan 2019 16:42:56
This great transfare window in the summer.
Gomez tires to easily, Mina is inconsistent, only Digna looks a real good buy, please take off these rose coloured glasses guys and girls.

7.) 04 Jan 2019 13:47:22
Dark Clouds, think Gomez will come good as will Bernard. Mina was bought on the basis of his goal against England and being a big lump, nothing out of the ordinary in all his other World Cup games. Digne got to be the buy of the season for us.

24 Aug 2019 22:26:19
I won't hide the fact that i don't want Silva but can i just ask anyone who wants him to stay just what it is that you see in him is it his tactics is it his team selection is it his substitutions you like or the way he can get his players worked up and rise to the occasion and get the crowd going because if it's any of them I've not seen anything from him so i ask again just what is it?


1.) 24 Aug 2019 22:46:16
I like the fact that he goes out every game to win it. Something Everton haven't done for many a year.
Yes we will lose games because of it but I like the way we play football.
We played Villa off the park.
We also playerd every other team off the park when we have gone down to 10 men. Wolves, Palace, Bournemouth we have been the better side when down to 10.
I like the fact that he has got us compact and solid defensively.
Won't just throw players in to aid the attack when he knows it will be a detriment to our defense. That shows he is tactically very good.
Not many other teams when on song can defend like us.
Yes he needs to tweak the attack, but trust me, when he gets it right (like the back end of last season) we will be a top side.

And I know all the doom and bloomers are waiting for it to fall apart but defensively he is sound and Moshiri and Brands are in it for the long run so I think you ma6 be waiting a while.

2.) 25 Aug 2019 02:46:05
Hi Skylark

In a different post you talked about 10 games as being a better guide to a teams performance
If we take the last 7 games of last season and the 3 games this season we won 5 drew 3 and lost 2 giving us 18 points
Multiply that by 3.8 to get a season total and we get 68.4 points which is 14 points better than last season and 19 better than season before
It would have given us 6th place in both those seasons
We have beaten Chelsea (just outside the 10 games) Arsenal and Man Utd. We got deserved draws against Liverpool and Tottenham
Our defence has improved enormously - Kean, Zouma and Mina have all come out and said how much Silva has improved their games
The new signings from 18/ 19 have been a success
The new signings from the last window still have to be integrated into the side
Our start to this season hasn't been the best but I really don't understand the supposed supporters that seem to take great joy in being able to slag the team off as soon as there is a blip. Even with those 3 games over the last 10 games we show a vast improvement

Yes Silva has to get the attack to score more but he will do it once he has fully integrated Kean and Iwobi
The midfield will improve with Gbamin and Delph
Yes Gomes had a bad game at AV, the whole team did and they need to turn it around very quickly but tell me one player who hasn't had a bad game. Tell me one team who hasn't had a bad day. I agree the best teams keep those days to a minimum and we need to improve that aspect but look at our last 8 games of last season W 5 D 2 L 1 6 clean sheets

They are my reasons. what's yours.

3.) 25 Aug 2019 08:34:58
It just shows how low some fans have gone if you think a draw against Liverpool is a good result . i give up.

4.) 25 Aug 2019 09:25:24
Our record under Moyes and those after him was pretty good against the teams below us. Silva has shown that we can also compete with the teams above us.

It means that as a supporter there are no weekends where I would rather not bother because we are playing a team I know will beat us. that's something I have not really had since the 80s.

Question to you Skylark. You have mentioned what you don't see, so what do you see that you like from Silva's coaching?

5.) 25 Aug 2019 10:14:01
He doesn't give me any optimization the football is terrible and predictable there is no fight from the players the midfield is slow and team selection terrible I'm sorry can't see anything i know some on here will call me a doom merchant like DC but it's just the way i see it . said i was going off line till Xmas a while back but stayed on after the villa game but think i will go away for a bit now to the joy of some hopefully things have improved by then.

6.) 25 Aug 2019 10:26:16
Really Skylark

Is that your considered response to what are your reasons for disliking Silva?

A draw against Liverpool, The runners up in the league with the 3rd best points total in a season and which we could and should have won wasn't a good result

Is that the best you've got?

Maybe you are right and you should give up.

7.) 25 Aug 2019 10:42:48
Wel if your glad with a draw against Liverpool then maybe it's time you gave up . that's it I'm off i will leave my options for match day at the ground.

8.) 25 Aug 2019 10:50:27
People says he goes out to win, this is wrong. He goes out to attack there is a big difference. Trying to win is about having tactics to stop the opposition.
The odd good result means nothing, if that is all some fans want then stay away, Evertonians should be winners, wanting to win all the time. I know this is not possible but we should allways try to win and aimless pretty predictable football is rubbish no different to Martinez.
It seems some supporters are not aware of are great history, well I am.

9.) 25 Aug 2019 11:11:02
I don't think its loyalty to Silva, its more if we change manager again, its set us back another 4 transfer windows while we chop and change all the players again. we need some stability and changing again after 1 defeat is ridiculous. the problems at Everton are well deeper than the manager, player recruitment is so poor, the delays at the end of the window mean all our new signings appartently aren't fit to play, the recruitment structure and process needs to change before the manager does.

10.) 25 Aug 2019 11:20:46
Tactics to stop the opposition is about defending. Trying to win is a collaboration between trying to stop them and trying to attack them.

DC, it’s not right to suggest a persons point of view is a product of ignorance of our history. That’s a bit harsh. We are all acquainted with our rich history and we all have differing views. Like you are with Silva, I was the same with Martinez. There’s not much between us other than preference that we can both find points to back up.

This forum is an opportunity to air our opinions to like minded fellow blues. Like minded in the pursuit of silverware and the memory of our great history.

11.) 25 Aug 2019 11:30:22
Am I going mad?

"Trying to win is about having tactics to stop the opposition"? No that is tactics to get at best a 0-0 draw like the dross Allardyce served up.

However the number of clean sheets we have had shows Silva knows how to do this - stop the opposition - so what is your point?

Please talk some sense.

12.) 25 Aug 2019 15:13:53
DC didn't you want Allardyce to stay? Yes you did. Now you want to win every game. And you think we're confused, your comments are all over the place.
Silvas defensive record is as sound as anyone's in the league, the proof is there to show that.
As for great history that will forever be tarnished by your mate Allardyce the crook.

13.) 25 Aug 2019 16:25:05
He goes out most games to attack, not the same as to win it (I accept the fact that no manager worth his salt goes out to lose) . Two ways for me either attack in such a way (Liverpool way mostly) , creating so much pressure that on the whole the opposition find it hard to get off the back foot, (again I accept the side has to be extremely fit - physically -. ) The other way is to absorb and hold and endeavour an extremely fast counter attack. What we are now seeing from Silva is akin to Martinez but without the wearing all the time positivity. You will note that this season (3 games in yes I know) , I have not called for his head, our bed has been made and I have no wish to go down the road of told you so. We have a brilliant DoF, who is slowly getting his back room together, my fervent hope is that Silva takes advantage of his (Brands recruitment) . Brilliant BBC article on Brands recruitment process, sheds light (at last) on the human side of this great Club an insight into how we were able to attract Moise (will work out probably in my view to be one of our best scores in decades) . Posted earlier on the Lincoln game and a chance to bed our new recruits into the Team and hopefully, works out solid for Wolves game. Believe me that will be a test, said beginning of last Season they are the side to watch, they will be top 6/ 7 this season.

14.) 25 Aug 2019 16:43:29
100% agree with Smit on this one. I read more than I post and sometimes find it hard to see where dc’s coming from at all. Opinions are opinions but it seems to me that he doesn’t support the team at all. If Brands is more than happy with Silva being our manager then I’d take his opinion over dc’s every day of the week. As for Allardyce, c'mon now he must be one of our poorest appointments in years, maybe a relative to dc. Skylark, a draw at Liverpool when they were on a high and had the league in there hands. Our draw pretty much stopped them from winning the title, I for one will take that, it was an excellent result. Some fans on here post just to get a response, I’m the sort of fan that gets behind our beloved team whoever’s in charge home and away ( and that includes Big Sam) .

15.) 25 Aug 2019 17:42:12
Smit and bw, great posts, but I would not waste my breath on some of the doom mungers mate.

Every man and his dog can see the dross we had a few seasons ago.

We have yet to get a Kean, Iowbi and Delph into the team or play Silvas preferred 4-4-3.

We saw towards the end of last season how we held our own and even bettered the top sides.

You can even go back to the 85 and 87 Championship sides we had, check the results for the first few games, we never start well, god knows why, but we just seem to drop points early doors.

Keep the faith Smit and bw, results will follow.

16.) 25 Aug 2019 18:17:07
4 4 3 eh! Certainly have an advantage there then.

17.) 25 Aug 2019 18:31:51
I agree Bignev I made a decision to not give certain posters on here any airtime and recently I have started to.
I will revert back to ignoring the usual suspects.

18.) 25 Aug 2019 19:45:52
Give you that one dfs, 4-3-3.

19.) 26 Aug 2019 01:31:51
Show me a manager that sets a team up to lose, you crazy people! What are you even talking about? 'He goes out most games to attack, not the same as to win it' what sort of crazy talk is that?
If you don't attack then you don't win. Honestly, have an effing word with yourself!



04 Aug 2019 21:52:14
Think we should have a poll as to what would be an acceptable position to finish this season now it's Silva second season and with all the new signing and the direction the club wants to go. Maybe. A. Top 4 B. Top 7 C Top 10 D any position with a trophy . something like that?


1.) 04 Aug 2019 23:19:29
Top ten will be ok, do not expect anymore.

2.) 04 Aug 2019 23:33:12
I'm hoping for better than top 10, meaning that could mean 10th.
Personally I think 6th is realistic, 8th last year with a terrible mid season, we should be looking on improving on last year mate.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 07:54:09
6th will be difficult but 7th is possible. Best of the rest with Wolves having Europa and second season syndrome. Leicester losing a solid centre back and West Ham fans watching their team from almost a mile away yet still in the stadium. COYB.

4.) 05 Aug 2019 08:51:23
They all sound about right. But never got my poll.

5.) 05 Aug 2019 09:01:32
Personally with the money that’s been spent, then an improvement on last season position should be expected.
To break into the top 4 at this stage is a very big ask, and would mean either Chelsea or Spurs faltering. Who knows.
I would say 5th or 6th is a realistic target with European qualification at the end of it.

Perhaps also success in a cup competition is long overdue and satisfy those fans who may be a bit more impatient than others for success. It is after all a very long journey to get top 4 and could be expensive also. Remember a new ground to pay for as well.

6.) 05 Aug 2019 09:38:30
Aim big, league Champions with our neighbours finishing outside the top two.

Realistically though I would say around 5th or 6 th, but still think our neighbours will finish outside the top two.

7.) 05 Aug 2019 13:02:57
I agree with Keen. We have to finish above 7th and no excuses. Brands has done has in my opinion carried out so far his remit (brilliantly) and given Silva the tools.



29 Jul 2019 21:26:57
All year supporters say get rid of players who don't want to play for the club now they want to sign zaha who doesn't want to play for us . WHY.


1.) 29 Jul 2019 23:28:19
Because Zaha is decent 🤷🏼‍♂️.

2.) 29 Jul 2019 23:30:50
It's a bit different if you have a contract with a club but don't want to play for them.
I haven't heard Zaha say he doesn't want to play for us, he supports Arsenal so he will want to play for them.
It means nothing if they don't want to sign him.
Zaha moved to United and it was too big a club for him. Why can't he come to us and move on in 2 or 3 years?
The lad is class and would improve us massively regardless of what people think. He is a game changer and can win a game on his own. How many times have we needed someone like him when the rest of our team can't win against a west Brom, Huddersfield or Southampton. All the top teams have a player like him and I for one would love to have him on board.

{Ed0333's Note - stop I can’t handle all this reality. Deep breath. I totally agree with you 666. Zaha is inconsistent but when he’s on he’s is a game changer, can abuse defenders and make them look like mugs. But switching him on for large parts of the season is gonna be the crux. Zaha is 27 and if you nab him he’ll give you his prime years not sure he’ll have another big move in him. But I hope you get him because I think he deserves a shot at a bigger club than Palace to showcase his talents.



16 Jul 2019 18:32:52
Why are Everton visiting the house of commons to discuss there new stadium thought we had planning permission or is it all pie in the sky.


1.) 16 Jul 2019 20:39:09
You can’t have planing permission until you submit plans thus why we have not seen designs yet, we will submit later in the year once every single aspect has been looked over which has been happening behind the scenes and all the consultations.

2.) 16 Jul 2019 21:18:46
Thought we had planning permission.



08 Jul 2019 13:21:19
Give us a poll please. should Everton sign Costa.


{Ed033's Note -

Everton Costa Poll

1.) 08 Jul 2019 14:24:15
It’s a no from me. Would be a controversial singing for certain.
