Looks like beni going out on loan to Wigan - not sure why as I thought a run in the team would have done him a world of good.


{Ed025's Note - me too..

1.) 31 Jan 2019 20:58:33
Would’ve let Gueye go for £30m and have McCarthy/ Beni in there rest of the season. thought he looked promising last season.

2.) 31 Jan 2019 21:03:18
Needs a good run of competitive football to up his game. Hopefully he'll get that at Wigan.

3.) 01 Feb 2019 09:48:23
Better that he gets games under his belt in a league like the Championship that benched for our first team.

4.) 01 Feb 2019 11:42:44
It is clear that our so called manager will not give youth a chance, youngsters not getting on the subs bench either. The only ones used our Davies and Kenny and they have quite a bit of experience.
It is a bad manager who does not try to develop players within a club, yet another reason to get rid of Silva at the end of the season.
Benny has been cast aside as has Holgate it is so very sad.

5.) 01 Feb 2019 15:29:22
dark clouds I don't think you can say Silva doesn't give youth a chance Richarlson, DCL Lookman, Kenny, and Davis all under 22. He has a mixture of experience and youth in the team and on the bench most matches. The youngsters that have not been making the bench but look like they have the potential to succeed have been shipped out on loan for experience and game time. It makes perfect sense to me.

as we have had both Gomes and Zouma all year and if both were bought on permanent deals I would assume we are talking anywhere between 40-50 million for the 2 - this is a large chunk possibly of our transfer budget for next year and we will in effect have not improved the squad from this year - so if we can only buy the one player out of the 2 who would you pick - for me it has to be Zouma.

Great result today and let's hope United play like that against city midweek. lol.


1.) 21 Apr 2019 21:30:52
I really think it's going to be a tough ask to get Zouma especially with a potential transfer ban looming for Chelsea. The same can be said for Gomes with Spurs apparently intereated. We need to hope that they have bought into the project we have in process of competing with the top 6. If I had to choose between the 2 though I would go for Gomes as he has the skill and cleverness to play next to a ball winner like Gueye.

2.) 21 Apr 2019 21:51:01
Gomes has definitely bought into Everton and with his anxiety issues most probably will be happy to stay.
Zouma with Chelseas ban and the possibility of him getting in their 1st team might be hard to convince.



09 Apr 2019 12:30:37
A quick question - why has it taken nearly 30 games for us to show exactly how we can play - yes there has been some glimpses at the start of the year of decent form but by in large rather poor season.

Last 5 games we have shown what we are capable off but is this down to players now relising that they are possibly playing for their spot in the team next year? . the manager has not changed in the past few weeks, same players and it seems same tactics so why the big difference now - just a thought.


1.) 09 Apr 2019 14:43:37
None know what really goes in a dressing room.

{Ed002's Note - It is full of men taking their clothes off.}

2.) 09 Apr 2019 16:44:36
Goodison. The adage; don't change a winning team has a lot to do with it. Also just perhaps after 30 odd games, the coach has settled on the best side and also perhaps he has stopped pandering to favourites.

3.) 09 Apr 2019 17:29:37
Simples - Marco didn’t know the best line up and persisted in chopping and changing creating instability amongst the players and continued to play players out of position and pick players who are now lucky to make the bench.

4.) 09 Apr 2019 19:08:29
Be interesting what a new poll would read because the last one said 37percent to sack him now 🤔.

5.) 09 Apr 2019 19:19:29
It takes time. That is why managers need to be given more time.
Most who wanted Silva sacked after 6 months aren't prepared to give any manager time and will always call for their head after a run of bad results.
That was Watfords mistake and hopefully we will reap the benefits.
Their brief success is built on sand, ours will be solid.

6.) 09 Apr 2019 19:26:08
It’s down to two things.

DCL not on the wing but playing up top and Walcott not on the wing, full stop.

7.) 09 Apr 2019 21:10:46
He didn't know his best side and it was a team of players coming back from injury. So it was disrupted a lot. Then we don't know that this run will continue. In 3 weeks we might all be moaning again? But it does look like he now knows his best starting line up. DCL has also come on a lot. he started the season as a 21 year old and has matured nicely. Gomez and Bernard look 10 times fitter. Time will tell how much we have improved.

8.) 09 Apr 2019 22:58:53
The big gripe on here was zonal marking. He stuck with it and it's paid off.
It is the way forward. If he can get the front 3 firing then we have a real chance of breaking the top 6 next season.

9.) 10 Apr 2019 07:00:13
Smit, Watfords mistake? Final of the FA Cup. Level on points game in hand.

10.) 10 Apr 2019 08:12:29
billscrocodiletears, I usually stick up for you and don't want to be having a go, but if you are trying to say that Watford are doing ok. well yes they are. but Silva was partly responsible for that. I would just say look at the difference in football quality that we have now compared with last season. It is like comparing Champagne with Lambrini!

11.) 10 Apr 2019 09:44:56
Good posts Smit and degsy, time for me was the answer to our recent form.

12.) 10 Apr 2019 11:43:05
Watford were 10th and still in the FA cup when they sacked Silva.
They pulled the trigger too early.
This is a team who sacked their manager at the end of the season even though he got them promoted to the prem that season. Sacked a manger for finishing 10th and getting to the semi finals of the cup. Sacked Silva when they were 10th.
You have to ask, where would Silvas Watford have had to finish in the prem to be safe from the sack.

{Ed001's Note - to be fair, they went separate ways with Jokanovic over the money he was demanding in salary to stay.}

13.) 10 Apr 2019 12:09:17
smit666 IMO the zonal making hasn't really been tested over the last couple of matches so its still early doors on whether its fixed or not.

14.) 10 Apr 2019 12:47:06
Thanks Ed. They are pretty trigger happy though.

{Ed001's Note - they can be ruthless, yes., but they stood by Gracia and their decision not to pay Jokanovic what he was asking has been borne out by the way he flopped with Fulham.}

15.) 10 Apr 2019 12:49:29
Yes SA but the best form of defence is attack and we pressing and winning the ball back well at the moment.
Maybe the Burnley game might be a test as they will be relying on route 1 and set pieces.

16.) 10 Apr 2019 14:18:36
yep I expect the zonal marking in the box will be seriously tested by Burnley. Then we may have a better idea of where we are defensively.



07 Apr 2019 16:11:19
After todays result I am convinced we are going to win the league. next season!


1.) 07 Apr 2019 18:50:22
Your getting carried away Goodison but for once why not.



09 Mar 2019 15:59:34
Maybe our luck is changing for once - Pickford should have been sent off but saves a penalty and then we go up the other end and score. long may it continue.


1.) 09 Mar 2019 16:46:46
Yeah, about that.

2.) 09 Mar 2019 16:56:40
Looks like dark clouds were over St James Park today. bahhhh.

3.) 09 Mar 2019 17:11:20
Doing alright up to Half Time, then Silva must have been reading some of his fans accolades and from that believed he is a good manager so made the astute substitutions which resulted in bringing Newcastle onto us. 30 games in and some will still say this isn't Silvas Team and he needs time. Of all the Managers we have had, this appointment has been the stupidest.

{Ed025's Note - to be fair we played ok and were in complete charge...until calamity pickford had 2 brain farts of epic proportion and cost us big time, we would have been better if he had been sent off to be honest DFS..

4.) 09 Mar 2019 17:22:42
Yes his name is Silva, I feel very sorry for our supporters that travel on a cold day to watch the rubbish played by Everton they deserve better as we all do.

{Ed025's Note - they actually played well for most part DC, the keeper cost us im afraid mate..

5.) 09 Mar 2019 18:32:51
the problem with pickford is that he simply is not learning by his mistakes which is areal worry he does not command his area like a top class keeper should and the defence is shambolic all the time .

{Ed025's Note - the defence was good against liverpool alan, but when you have a keeper who is an accident waiting to happen its hard for them to be confident mate..

6.) 09 Mar 2019 18:43:19
I watched it Ed025, now a days I can't get to away games but never the less on match day (away) I always watch the live game. To be fair we did play okay but had some narrow squeaks even in the first half. Yes Pickford is an idiot (the lad is missing a couple of those brain cells you need to take on board instruction) but our defence in the centre is bloomin awful. Not sure if it is zonal marking or not but something is not right. Alardyce (yes we all know) to be fair was getting to grips but Silva was always waiting in the wings, having been promised the job, once the dust settled. As I said earlier, I honestly believe that Silva has to go and go now, it will cost us but save us money in the longer run. We need to build our prestige (building a new stadium etc) and for that we need someone who knows what it is to succeed and is proven tactically aware. My choice would be Benitez but whether he would come if asked is a long shot. Wonder if Ashley was asked if he wanted to do a straight swap LOL.



06 Feb 2019 19:00:40
Just seen the team sheet for tonite - I expect a hammering.

Over a hundred million sitting on the bench - pity we didn't have that on the pitch!


1.) 06 Feb 2019 19:21:16
Well done Mr negative. People like you would moan that we didn’t win enough if we won 5-0. Fed up of seeing negative crap on here all the time. It’s depressing that most people on here haven’t got even a bit of wishful thinking let alone faith. Marco is being slammed for his previous selections and slammed for changing it like most of you have been asking for. Let’s get behind the lads and Marco as all this negativity will just make things worse. COYB.

2.) 06 Feb 2019 19:32:13
Great post reply Cruncher 100% agree what you say.

3.) 06 Feb 2019 19:37:30
Not that bad a line up except Walcott.

4.) 06 Feb 2019 19:40:56
I think the harsh reality is that most fans are expecting a loss tonight regardless of whether they are positive or negative. It is good that he has finally changed but we are currently in relegation form (stats on Sky Sports News earlier) . That is far more concerning to me than anything else.

5.) 06 Feb 2019 19:44:52
It’s not that bad, let’s be honest our current form can’t be much worse so why not give those not playing a chance to shine, our first teamers aren’t performing. Only thing I find odd is Davies in the playmaker role, I’d have had Richarlison on the left and tried Bernard on that role. Oh and have Lookman in too.

6.) 06 Feb 2019 19:52:33
Can't make it, son says no lookman. Is he injured does anyone know.

7.) 06 Feb 2019 20:43:06
Good changes. Walcott aside obviously. He's so so so bad. If he doesn't turn it around his career is swan diving. If he's crap with us he's snickered.

Moshiri and his cohorts thought they had found a young version of Mourinho who was going to work his magic as he did with Porto - time for Silva to go and time for this once great club to get their act together.

if you are talking about BK no complaints from me - saved us and brought great stability to the club - yes time to move on ( for BK that is ) perhaps but I personally feel he sought the wrong investment from the wrong person.

SA90 - I take your points - as you have mentioned the multiple managers does not help the situation but who is hiring / firing these - Moshiri.

yes he has invested millions of pounds but with this he is swapping managers left right and centre - why - looking for instant success IMHO which we all want but it seems Moshiri wants it straight away hence the managers being under pressure from day one.

BK brought us stability with no investment and had Moyes for 10 plus years - even tho we had some shockers with Moyes generally we were up there, year in year out.

Moshiri has brought his money and so far in 3 years we have had 5 managers and football which is poor - a large wage bill, too many players which are average etc

Its a game of opinions which is why I think this site is tops.

You make some valid points and the one area or time frame you mention is 3 years - this is roughly the time Moshiri has had his hands on the club - coincidence or not but not all investment is good.

We were one of the last clubs around that needed a new ground and some decent investment and who would be a safe bet to not get relegated so along comes the businesman Moshiri who sees us as easy pickings to make a decent profit once the ground is built and here lies the problem.

BK has blue blood but no money wheres Moshiri is the opposite - he has stated on numerous occasions that league positions is the most important factor for him hence the reason for splashing the cash, swapping managers on a regular business as a more succesful team is easier to flip. the man may have removed the debt - in the case of a interest free loan from himself which has no time frame to be paid back but he has us over the barrell so to speak.

I hope and pray we do not end up like a leeds or portsmouth as sooner or later Moshiri will decide to take his money elsewhere if performances etc do not improve and then where will we be?

for me Moshiri is the problem within the club.
