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.

2.) 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.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 20:23:01
Very true John mate good post.

What a difference the right people make to a football club.

Steve Walsh and Ronald Koeman where such a disaster but I wonder who was more culpable.

Was it Koeman with his negative tactics in his second season. In his first he played attacking and fluid fast football that saw us have one of our best periods in the second half of that season that we've had in the EPL era.

Or was it Walsh with his purchase of three no10's and not one player to come in and replace the departing Lukaku.

Looking at the players Walsh brought in and the massive increase in quality of what Brands has brought in, with clear input from Silva (Richarlson), and the difference to what the right people can make to a football club is clear to see.

I honestly trust these two with the future of this club and do so more than anyone brought in over the last few years.

Long may this continue.

Chalk and cheese mate.



07 Aug 2018 08:13:37
So sky have their sources tell them we have a deal with Barcelona for Mina. Their sources also say he's involved with a bid for Pogba.

I'd maybe want to have a word with them sources and tell them to make their mind up!


1.) 07 Aug 2018 09:17:12
He could be involved in both lol.

Clubs don’t usually put all of their eggs in one basket and it doesn’t look like Mina wants to join us so they should be looking to offload him elsewhere.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 10:03:26
Highly unlikely a deal involving 2 players plus cash sounds very complicated with so many players to agree terms etc.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 10:06:13
I also feel like their “sources” are just people in an office trawling through other people’s social media accounts.



05 Aug 2018 20:21:23
Just coming out now we've signed Mina!


1.) 05 Aug 2018 21:25:45
I hope so after yesterday! Jags been a good servant to the club but sadly his legs have gone. No leader on the pitch yesterday. Gueye should be the captain in my opinion. Attacking midfielder needed now.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 21:27:20
Where u hear that from bluejohn I don't see it anywhere plus no mention of medical been taken.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 21:30:34
Coleman is surely the new captain in waiting?

4.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:03
I know it was only a friendly but he was poor and didn't seem to be shouting at his fellow players. Only players with credit yesterday was Gueye, Tosan, Walcott. Rest of the team CBA!

5.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:19
And fully agree with the Coleman shout.

6.) 05 Aug 2018 21:38:44
Sorry missed Richarlison.

7.) 05 Aug 2018 22:28:41
A fee was agreed weeks ago. There is no ‘news’ here, just SKY scratching around for headlines.

8.) 05 Aug 2018 22:59:47
Personal terms were agreed ages ago. There was an “understanding” a few days ago that they were to agree a few. However today, the complete fee (add on, etc) has been agreed today!

How reliable this is I do not know. It is only what I know from usually a very reliable source.

9.) 06 Aug 2018 21:35:15
Where did you see this?

10.) 06 Aug 2018 21:37:33
bookies have cut odds to 1/10.



28 Jul 2018 22:07:34
Where we have the right personel we look good and can see it's only going to get better. That's upfront.

At the back Jags and Baines are far too slow and I think they both new it today. Jags looked totally dejected after one of the goals and had a look of resignation.

Now the good news and the massive difference to last year. Brand and Silva know it and are doing something about it.

Digne has pretty much done and they've been trying most of the summer for mina.

There's no buying 3 No.10 or someone because he has one good game against us.

I would though if I was them look for another CB making it two and a good no8 who adds real drive in that centre of midfield.

Pickford, Digne and Mina will add pace and aggression this defence needs.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 11:30:25
Spot on mate. Sneiderlin is not our answer. Would rather have Beni in there.

{Ed025's Note - i would rater have "miss diane" in there tit.. :)

The big dynamic that has changed at Everton is Moshiri and his money. Before the fans blamed Kenwright for ripping off the club. Kenwright this and that. All the bile was directed at him.

Since Moshiri took over the anger moved away from the directors and is now targeted at the manager and players.

Whenever Moyes got stuck from the crowd he come out with "what do they expect? We've got very little money". Kenwright probably told him to blame him. It took all the pressure off the manager and players.

Now though there's no buffer. No one dare have a go at Moshiri, which is right as he's not the manager but this is a group of fans that has become more and more bitter over the years. They wouldn't dare have a go at Moshiri in case we lose his money. The rubbish some of you lot gave Kenwright beggars belief.

The next manager won't last long and won't have favour with the fans for too long. Even if its Moyes.

I hate him. Absolutely hate him. He had no respect for our club the way he left but he was also a very average manager.

If he comes I will continue to support the club and cheer every goal. I won't do what some do on here and hope we get beat to get rid of a manager. I won't slate him when it's the teams fault. I won't call for him to be sacked even when we struggle as a team. I'll support the club.

Whatever happens though I pray the rest of the bitter fans do something they've completely forgot - SUPPORT THE TEAM.


1.) 10 Oct 2019 03:49:19
Bang on there son. Wonder how much stick and abuse Silva would be getting if moshiri hadn't arrived and Bill was still the pharoah.

2.) 10 Oct 2019 09:54:12
Judging by results PL position and money spent Geoff. I personally think Marco would still be in the firing line and in our 'crosshairs' for sure mate.



08 Oct 2019 22:30:03
The lack of imagination on here by some fans is truly astounding.

For God's sake Moyes. Bloody David Moyes. He has won absolutely nothing. He was here for ELEVEN years and won wait no hang on, he won, one, two, three, no, did he, nope did win, maybe, no, not that NOTHING - EVER!

You sound utterly crazy suggesting him.

Think bigger people. You're going on about Silva's CV (Which has a couple of trophies on by the way) yet this guy Moyes has nothing to show on his and he took over a title winning team. Oh and for good measure he couldn't muster a win against the big boys away in those ELEVEN years. He should have at least fluked one in that time.

Benitez is a better choice. Not that I want him either.

I'm hoping though we take our time and pick someone who can truly be inspiring. Not just for the team but also for the lunatics suggesting this absolute whollop of a manager.


1.) 08 Oct 2019 23:08:05
Part of the problem is since Moshiri has come in we've bought players for a short term plan, then a long term plan but employed managers for a long term plan (Allardyce excluded) .

Moshiri now needs to decide whether he wants to go for the top 4/ 6 in the next couple of years or build for the next 3 to 6 years.

Our manager is young and naive and needs time to build a team/ plan and has shown that he is incapable of playing consistently well without all the correct pieces being in place and fit.

So if this is a long term plan Moshiri has to stick with Silva and carry on buying young emerging talent and take the pain in the short term.
If he wants to break into Europe and consistently stay there for the next few seasons he needs to employ someone like Mourhino or Rafa and spend another 200 million replacing the rest of the Koeman/ walsh buys.

2.) 08 Oct 2019 23:31:15
You still think that super continental man can take us to champions league. Look where we are that is a couple of years away at best, for that and getting off the bottom is two different managers I am sure many will agree.

3.) 09 Oct 2019 02:44:43
I recall Moyes winning Manger of the year on 3 different occasions for Everton Bluejohn.

4.) 09 Oct 2019 06:17:13
There isn't an English manager out there who is showing they can match the foreign managers at the mokent so yes I would go for another foreign manager.

5.) 09 Oct 2019 06:56:51
It beggars belief that some have still not seen through this 'young' Manager. He was just about never found out prior because he never hung around. He got us up to 8th in a full season, equal to Alardyce . So far after a on paper easy start, we are in the bottom 3 with on paper harder games to come. Should we win against West Ham some will hail him once again as the Messiah.

6.) 09 Oct 2019 09:25:56
bignev, where do we hang the 'moyes won manager of the year' achievment in our trophy cabinet mate?

7.) 09 Oct 2019 11:04:30
We don't hang it we put it under a corner to stop it wobbling as its empty.

Wouldn't it be funny if brands was buying a type of player that would fit the manager he wants, rather than the one he got stuck with. I'm sure he will have biggest say in who is next if they ditch silva.

8.) 09 Oct 2019 11:52:21
BCT I will Cheer have a drink and be very very merry if we get a convincing victory over West Ham, however Marco's portrait does not go back over the fireplace just yet mate.

9.) 09 Oct 2019 12:30:43
Smit666 you're spot mate with you assessment of our current position. if we want to go anywhere we need to give the manger sufficient time to change the squad and build a team that will be able to compete with the top sides. I personally think we should have given Koeman more time to get thing sorted. Silva is in the same postition as Koeman reasonable 1st season followed by early season struggles. Changing the manager at this stage of the season may cause more problems than solve anything.

10.) 09 Oct 2019 14:32:10
Blue247 believe me so will I.

11.) 09 Oct 2019 14:37:50
Sa90, this one is an exception, he appears to be more stubborn than Martinez (a very good coach but not a Manager) . He stays much longer and we may be in a position of no recovery.

12.) 09 Oct 2019 14:39:15
If we beat West Ham he will be hailed the messiah because it will be a bloody miracle.

13.) 09 Oct 2019 17:19:50
WBlue, I was referring to Bluejohn saying Moyes has won nothing at Everton, he has three manager of the years to his name.

Would have been nice had he landed us a trophy, but at least we had fighters in Moyes team, I know we have his gunfight comment and sour taste how he left us, but In those 11 years, you never felt worried about even finishing in the bottom half, let alone a relegation scrap.

It is just a shame Moyes never had the luxury of the spending power our Managers have enjoyed since.

14.) 09 Oct 2019 18:29:46
For me it has to be Benitez, as for Moyes he brought us stability but it’s never good to return to a previous club, it just never seems to work out.

But some are rightly having a pop at the way he walked out of us for Utd, yet are calling for Arteta who left in similar circumstances, but shorter time to find a replacement.

15.) 09 Oct 2019 22:52:12
Hey Nev. Moyes showed us what he'd do with money when he was at United.

I mean he had all that money and he comes to buy Fellaini off us.
That just typifies what he is like. All United's attacking flair and he wants to stick a big lump in the middle of the park.
Not forgetting him showing Rio Ferdinand videos of Jagielka and saying 'dont worry son I'll have you defending like this lad in no time'.

He can galvanise a team on a limited budget but no more than that.



22 Sep 2019 14:40:11
Well, another bad performance and result. I'm not quite the hysterical type but yesterday a change took place that sealed Silva's fate. It happens at a point where you've lost your nerve and once it happens there's no going back.

The 1st half was all the players fault as it has been the season so far. The second half was Silva's fault and that's because of his erratic substitutions and change of formation to one that was pure desperation. That's where the big problem lies.

When a manager and at home does what they did yesterday, they give up on their ideology and everything starts to unravel and quickly. Personally, I think Silva has had his hands tied and has been scared of taking the big decisions. The big one being Sig.

Silva likes a number 10 and they tend to score goals in his formations and Sig did that last season with one of his best goalscoring years ever. However, Bernard is more his type of player in that position and if Silva has anytime left then maybe its rubbish or bust for him here.

The no10 has to mostly interact with the inside winger and CF and it needs to be full of movement which we are not seeing from Sig. Iwobi also makes this work as he is a winger that moves inside and plays close to the no10 which is again what Silva likes in his formations.

At the back I'm not overly worried. It was bad against Bournemouth, really basic mistakes but because we are not getting the 1st goal we are over committing going forward causing the back four to be less protected.

If you look at last season, we'd get an early goal or score 1st and we would dominate the game as we didn't push, letting the front players use their pace in fast paced attacks when winning the ball back.

However, he has a lot to fix and he's just made it so much harder for himself. After yesterday I don't think he can do it.

So if Silva gets another chance and I don't think he will, he needs to be brave. If he isn't and he continues making rash decisions then that's that for him.




02 Sep 2019 18:35:35
How much we have needed a player like Delph. Hearing him today with his winning mentality means we now have a real leader on the pitch.

It was infectious on Sunday as I must have seen almost every player having a go at each but in the right way. There's no resting on any laurels with people like this in the team.


{Ed025's Note - he seems to have a good attitude john and i though he played very well yesterday, im very happy with him mate..

1.) 03 Sep 2019 02:54:46
Yes we have needed leaders for years and Delph is certainly that, good footballer too.

2.) 03 Sep 2019 11:22:48
It came as a surprise to me if I am honest but he's started brilliantly and we needed more leaders on the pitch.



01 Sep 2019 23:24:02
Really good game today. Loads of room for improvement which is great news as it shows where this team can go.

Starting off with the back line. Coleman for me is making a few mistakes lately. He isn't getting forward enough although today was not the day to do it due to how Wolves play to exploit these positions. However, I felt today and it's happened a few times already this season he isn't inline with the rest of the back line. The first goal for Wloves could have been avoided.

Mina has been really good and is justifying why we bought him. I rate him higher than Zouma. Keane continues to improve.

Digne was terrible 1st half then after Silva obviously got into Iwobi at half time to provide more support it all changed and he was excellent second half.

Gomes and Delph were superb in the middle and had to be extremely disciplined. Delph showed what he was bought for. Covered better than Schnids and had more to his game today than Gana. He was brilliant.

Siggy and Ricky clearly have been unleashed after getting goals in midweek and were back to last season's levels. Siggy who against Villa was shocking was full of running and was available in all the right areas.

Ricky was my MOM although there many for the accolade. Two goals, a guy sent off and some excellent tackles, he was sensational. Add in Iwobi was fantastic again and Bernard came on who kept the momentum going.

Finally Kean. I thought he did okay and he's going to get better. Loads of running but he clearly has much to learn. His character will be tested after having rollicking as from Delph, Siggy and Digne for not doing enough or making a simple pass. He lost possession in the wrong places a few times but he's going to learn. I think he's going to be a real talent for us in the years to come but we'll have to be patient.

Overall 6/ 10 against tough opposition. Silva though a good 7/ 10.


1.) 02 Sep 2019 09:01:35
listen kean is 19 years old, you can see he's got the rawability and he's got the know how of knowing where to be and what runs to make, really unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet yesterday, but the goals will most certainly come, as you said he does have much to learn it was his fifth game in english football.

2.) 02 Sep 2019 16:11:10
HHe is a good prospect but a more experienced sterienced striker is needed in the short term, we are asking a lot of him.

3.) 02 Sep 2019 18:30:54
I just hope we give this kid a chance and space to grow. DCL is getting pillared every game because he doesn't score. Kean might only get 5 goals this season as well but he's very, very young.

We don't have a good track record as fans in supporting young players.

You could point that finger at every club except Villa who have done a Fulham. No one has done mega business.

Give it time. If we've learnt anything in being Evertonians it's that patience is a must in every transfer window.

In the same interview he spoke about not wanting the Leicester job but when asked about the Everton job refused to talk.

Might be nothing and hope it that's the case.
