A few weeks again against Sheff utd I saw Silva's reign end. He made rash substitutions and tactical changes. Today just confirmed it.

Those players on the pitch today let the manager down yes but they are letting each other down much more. And ofcourse the fans but I'm looking at this from a professional level first.

Delph and Schnids are either lazy or incompetent. Neither of them moved away from the middle of the park today. They didn't take any chances to get forward and as Silva pointed out, were not brave enough to try and make things happen.

Iwobi was full of running but there were so many times Digne was slow to support him. On the right the chemistry between Seamus and Ricky is none existent.

Upfront DCL is desperate for his no10 to help him. He makes himself available but he's knowhere to be seen. Ricky and Iwobi go looking for him but he's never there. He so individual now it's like he's just playing on his own.

In defense, the intensity of earlier on this season has gone and we've regressed which in set pieces means we are an easy target again.

As much as I want this team to be successful we need a new manager. EVERY player let us down today. EVERY single one of them.

The next manager needs to motivate these players and give them a simple plan. I pray to god we don't make the same mistakes of the past in getting someone like Sam. It has to be a long term vision but I don't hold out any hope they'll be given the right support again and we will simply be in this position in about 12 months time.

Unfortunately, I'll be telling my grandkids about how the city used to have two clubs.

They are letting us fans down most of all mate.

06 Oct 2019 12:12:34
They are GB but what should come first to the players should be to each other.

If they play for the manager and each other they become a team. They'll work together to improve. Football is a team sport and no individual can do the role of everyone in it.

They must at all times work for each other.

06 Oct 2019 20:23:01
Very true John mate good post.

05 Oct 2019 19:44:22
I have seen enough now. Absolute dearth of quality in the final third, awful in midfield and clueless in defence at set pieces. All down to the management.

Buck stops with Silva and Brands and I’ve seen enough. Not one to normally jump on the manager out shouts, but he’s done for me now.

Agree3 Disagree0

05 Oct 2019 21:50:34
Me too, he and the team have to improve significantly before I will have any confidence that he is the right manager. Ed 002 did warn us and I have more confidence in him than any of the "advisors" Moshiri is listening too.

03 Oct 2019 09:13:50
David Parkhouse a Sheffield United forward is the latest player to be linked with us, apparently he is getting rave reviews, Marcel appears keen.

Agree2 Disagree0

06 Oct 2019 09:43:03
Sorry but all the management are clueless for me. Only there for the money. The sooner we get management in that realise how passionate the fans are the better! For me I would have Moyes back with Cahill as his no 2.

29 Sep 2019 19:06:54
Is it true sporting Lisbon are trying to get there hands on silva.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Sep 2019 19:58:38
Lets hope 🙏🙏.

30 Sep 2019 01:14:11
More than hope, I will gladly provide air fare.

30 Sep 2019 13:28:09
Not saying Silva is the saviour but the grass isn't always greener. Be careful what you wish for. We forced koeman out and got fat Sam.
Glad it's not my decision to make.

03 Oct 2019 16:04:39
Probably if Silva does go the ill advised Moshiri will get it wrong again but at least there is a chance he might get the right man though slim sadly.

05 Oct 2019 19:33:11
With the negativity on here no wonder Goodison is toxic at times.
We are quite aware that we have struggled this season but does anyone actually bother considering that;
We lost Gana and his replacement has not yet been fully fit
We lost Zouma and didn’t replace him - that was not down to Silva
Gomes has missed half our games
We brought in a forward who in reality may be our future but is not quite our present. Again not Marcos fault.
Add to that the fact that with injuries and the previous make up of the squad he has not been able to field his preferred formation at any time.

Silva was the choice of many. It was roundly accepted when he came in that due to the cock ups previously there was a massive change needed with the squad. But after just 12 months with a greatly reduced squad in terms of numbers and some increase in quality, we are looking to change again.
Who would come?
How long would they get before the whining started?

The style of football has improved greatly from Koeman and Fat SAM.
Let’s give Marco a chance to get his own squad and team together.

05 Oct 2019 23:22:02
DaveW1878 I agree. He’s still got unwanted players we have no choice but to use and heard people saying change formation, play 2 up front?
We haven’t got 1 Striker good enough to play never mind 2!
The players need to step up for me especially in final 3rd as we are creating chances 10+ shots today NO GOALS.

26 Sep 2019 18:53:08
Being reported that Everton will let Cenk go in the January window for a reduced price of £15 million. which in turn will release funds for new players.

Agree4 Disagree0

27 Sep 2019 13:19:37
Being willing to let him go and actually getting a buyer for him are two separate things. Not sure there’ll be many clubs interested if we continue not to give him a chance so he can show what he can do. Would any team be that interested in a player that can’t get into our match day team?

30 Sep 2019 01:17:47
Cenk is a superb striker, not used under thw current inept system. Best let DCL on loan.

01 Oct 2019 18:43:58
He obviously has talent otherwise he wouldn't have scored goals previously but he has had chances for us and just doesn't seem to be the real deal. (Although none of them do atm).

Can't say I'd ever call him superb. He just doesn't have the pace to play up top on his own in prem league, struggles to hold the ball up and has a worse conversion rate than dcl. He reminds me of Glenn Murray in so. e respects and may be better at a club like Brighton or even Newcastle. He may have worked under a fat Sam system which was defensive and hit the long ball but not now.

23 Sep 2019 18:55:30
Wow being reported that if Marco does walk then Big Nev reckons Dunc should get the job, not for me.

{Ed025's Note - me neither GB, i loved big nev but i think all that pie eating must have addled his brain mate.. :)

Agree7 Disagree0

23 Sep 2019 19:10:03
Love it Ed that made laugh.

23 Sep 2019 22:41:02
If MS does go folks then it’s Rafa for me. Ticks all the boxes for where we are as a club at the present time. Not all will agree, but FM has had RM, RK, SA and logic suggests he goes and gets a manager that has now Won the Top trophy and has managed arguably one of the biggest clubs in world football in RM. I think him or Jose have got to be top of the shopping list IF and that’s a big IF it happens.

24 Sep 2019 00:37:06
John Toshack managed Real Madrid, shall we get him? Terry Venables managed Barcelona. Benitez is passed it, as his latest coaching role will state. Mourinho will not come to Everton. He doesn’t operate outside the top six sides in Europe.

24 Sep 2019 15:50:29
Benitez for me.

24 Sep 2019 16:12:04
Just for clarity, Guernsey is talking about Southall and not me :-)

{Ed025's Note - love it mate..

24 Sep 2019 16:17:46
Personally, I would offload big Dunc and put Tim Cahill in his place, at least he can do what Arteta is doing at City, With Cahill inputting the manager in the dugout.

At least Cahill talks sense and can identify the problems, people will rubbish this but give the thumbs up to Arteta.

Cahill will certainly provide more than what Dunc is providing on the bench.

24 Sep 2019 17:09:04
toffeeace, who else is there of that calibre?

24 Sep 2019 19:05:33
But Trev’ I don’t rate him so I’d argue that I’d stay with Silva than go with the calibre that Benitez would offer.

24 Sep 2019 21:19:43
To early to knee jerk for gods sake!
Silva will not be sacked at this point in the season, in fact probably not until it seems all is lost!
The board have chased this man so they are not going to give up early.
None of us are happy but we have to stick by him and the team through this bad patch.

{Ed002's Note - It was the owner who took advice to identify Silva as The Nifty One.}

24 Sep 2019 22:06:25
To many fans expect instantaneous positive results, it takes time to bring in and replace players.
Installing new ideas and styles of play it takes time so no one is happy with results it may take another window to change another couple but patience is key at this time!

25 Sep 2019 07:55:57
Wouldnt take it seriously, its not exactly being reported, just something crazy nev has spouted on his ever so crazy twitter.

27 Sep 2019 09:39:14
How many managers are still on our payroll? Martinez? Koeman? Allargy? Silva. and another new one? I think that will only happen as a last resort!

30 Sep 2019 01:25:14
Moshri is not a football man. Listen to the EDs, 2 in particular being the most loveable.

03 Oct 2019 20:27:30
Degsyp I am pretty sure the summer saw us clear all of those old managers salaries.

21 Sep 2019 18:58:57
believe I've spent the last week defending Silva and the team and they pop up with that performance. Say what ya want. Slag them off to your hearts content. They should be ashamed of that today. Can understand a loss even at home against a team we should beat. What I Can't take is no fight, no passion and no clue. If this continued then Silva will be gone by Christmas.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Sep 2019 19:05:42
He will mate no excuses after a display like that dreadful, Sheffield United totally outplayed us.

21 Sep 2019 19:08:09
Gone by tomorrow would be nice 🙏🙏.

21 Sep 2019 19:58:13
I don't believe he will go, YET. The problem we have is who would we replace him with? Can't see many (any) top managers wanting to take this project on at present. What we don't want is another Big Sam type of knee jerk reaction. Silva has to change his approach and strategy otherwise Moshiri will have no option.

21 Sep 2019 20:10:56
Mourinho is still jobless 🤔🤔.

{Ed002's Note - But not moving to Everton.}

21 Sep 2019 21:29:41
Jose nailed on for real Madrid.

21 Sep 2019 21:46:16
Will always support anyone associated with Everton (unless there's an extreme) but never rated Silva. Always seen him as Brown Shoes in disguise. Can not see the board doing anything with him though just yet, considering how badly they wanted him. Weren't we willing to pay Watford 15m at one stage for him (so say rumours and press) . However, at present I can't see where we favour. Undoubtedly we have better players than we have had for years, but what are we better at. Defending? Attacking? Creating chances? I'm not so sure. But he is still in charge of Everton, and while he is, he doesn't need another obstacle against him, ie us!

21 Sep 2019 22:08:19
Gallardo from River Plate please.

21 Sep 2019 23:01:17
Wouldn't want Jose anyway. Not sure who's out there. Benitez Maybe? Gallardo? I don't know.

21 Sep 2019 21:45:14
Any recommendations Ed002 for a manager to replace Silva?

{Ed002's Note - Not at this time Mike.}

22 Sep 2019 07:28:26
The man doesn't learn! His record speaks for itself. He was poor at Hull and Watford. He likes to play pretty football going forward but doesn't defend. Pretty obvious that zonal marking doesn't work. Players have no fight in them. There not arsed as long as they get their dough. Why isn't Davies being played. i'd have him anyday ahead of Sneiderlan ( who never passes the ball forward )
The man is clueless. His answer to a crisis is put on more forwards and take off the midfield!
Lukaku was never replaced. well he was by Tosun who isn't good enough. We are short of a centre half and we need a creative midfielder. Board should have gone for Rogers or Benitez in my opinion. Very sad state of affairs at the moment.

22 Sep 2019 12:29:09
So after 6 games silly season arrived early this year . I'll be back in 5 mins, just going to Google the names of a few obscure managers to let people think I have a vast knowledge of the world game . Back soon 🧐.

22 Sep 2019 13:28:05
It didn't take long for the "David Moyes back" speculation to start.

22 Sep 2019 17:35:58
Quite a few of us have defended the team and the manager, few games in the season now, so with the fixture run we had it is fair to say we should have turned in some better performances than that.

If you go a goal down we seem to throw on attacking players and leave the rest of the team lobsided, panic sets in.

That performance yesterday was shear panic by the manager, and a team with no fight in them.

We saw it with the past managers here, different managers, same mentality by the players.

People have said we have not replaced Lukaku, to be honest we have never replaced David Moyes, not for one minute am I saying Moyes back, what I am saying is we have not found a manager who can give the same fight Moyes teams gave.

Replacing Silva who to be fair has no plan b is going to be a merry go round, manager in, manager out.

Somewhere within Finch Farm, there is something wrong and needs to be fixed.

We cannot have anymore games like last Saturday, so The cup game in midweek is massive, one we cannot afford to lose.

22 Sep 2019 22:08:20
Bluemike so what's the problem with Moyes. Utd sacked him, even though his stats were third to Fergies. Consistently had us top 7 and that with zilch dinero. Him or Benitez would be a fit.

{Ed025's Note - come on BCT...moyes really????, do you not remember the dour stuff we used to play under him...or taking a knife to a gunfight?, the guy was a nightmare mate and i think i would rather have allardyce back before him, he had zilch dinero because he could not be trusted and was happy to wallow in mediocrity..

23 Sep 2019 11:34:10
Hasn't been much of a success since he left us either Bill. Has to be better candidates out there, but it's not our job to identify them. Unfortunately, whoever the silent advisor to Moshiri is, doesn't seem to have much of a clue either.

30 Aug 2019 17:36:30
According to reports, Miralles has gone and Bolassie could be on his way if reports are true, hats off to Marcel.

Agree7 Disagree0

30 Aug 2019 19:39:19
Its a shame how it ended with Kev, he was a great player under Moyes, i don't think his attitude over the last few years helped endear him to the new managers, but those first 3 years, he was a difference maker for us. Good Luck Kev.

{Ed025's Note - im afraid im in the good riddance camp on this one gold, early on i was a big fan mate but the longer he stayed his selfishness came to the fore, we are far better without him imo..

30 Aug 2019 20:05:13
I think that Penalty he took off another player didn't help his cause.

{Ed025's Note - it never GB but i think the writing was on the wall well before that mate..

30 Aug 2019 20:14:06
He did seem to have a bad attitude problem as you said Ed mate.

{Ed025's Note - he never had a chip on his shoulder GB...he had a whole portion.. :)

31 Aug 2019 09:07:13
Yeah its the right decision for him to leave, just a shame how it ended.

31 Aug 2019 11:48:37
Good, was a solid player for 2 seasons and okay for a 3rd. His pace started going with his constant hamstring injuries and he became an average player with a terrible attitude. Made up he's gone.

Just need to get rid of Bolasie now, what an absolute joke of a signing he has been, well done Steve Walsh and Ronald Koeman.

31 Aug 2019 12:23:08
Bolasie would have been alright if it wasn't for that nasty injury. Never the same player after that. Still got to few more to get rid of and tighten the squad up a bit. We got good young kids that we can use if need be. Integrate them slowly and build their experience and confidence.

31 Aug 2019 13:04:12
He was revered by us and its a thank god we have managed to get rubbish of him. So I ahlgree with gold, its a shame how it turned out but also a shame we couldn't ship him out earlier.

31 Aug 2019 13:41:45
If he had a whole portion Ed025 that makes him yesterdays news as that’s what chips were wrapped in 😉.

{Ed025's Note - your dead right ST.. :)
