Looking ahead at the fixture list, after the Norwich game, I can't see us winning a game until after Christmas.

We are not creating enough clear chances.
Statistics said we had 24 chances on Saturday, but I was there and most of them were just half chances at best.
We need to attack down the flanks and move the defenders about with better / quicker movement. I know its easier saying than achieving but we haven't got a 20+ goals a season striker, so the more real chances we can create the more we are likely to put away.


1.) 12 Nov 2019 08:38:08
i think we are creating enough chances, our players just aren't finishing them look back at the brighton and burnley games we had chances to kill it off, same on saturday, against manchester city mina should have had a hattrick and against spurs we should have had penalties its difficult.

2.) 12 Nov 2019 09:07:14
As WBlue is saying capitalising on our 'real' chances is the key plus var decisions going in our favour and we could gain more points than perhaps our current PL place suggests .
However we do have company, as there are others in this predicament .
As I have already said December does look a challenge though LHR.

3.) 12 Nov 2019 09:10:14
I don’t think we are quick enough, we mess about with the ball across the back four then into midfield then back to the back four. We need to be like Leicester more direct.

4.) 12 Nov 2019 11:06:46
oh yeah don't get me wrong dollo, sometimes its the worst attacking side in the world going fullback to fullback side to side.

5.) 12 Nov 2019 11:47:09
I can see 15 points by 1st Jan.

6.) 12 Nov 2019 12:55:16
Thats right Nick 'impossible' πŸ˜‘ just doesn't exist in 'Toffee Vocabulary' does it mate 😜.

7.) 12 Nov 2019 19:39:53
The impossible we can do Blue. Its the miracles that take a little longer πŸ˜‘.

8.) 12 Nov 2019 21:32:29
Our form is picking up so let's hope we are peaking at the right time.

9.) 13 Nov 2019 10:44:23
@Nick, Lol love it mate πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰.

10.) 13 Nov 2019 16:28:23
Like I have said many times. people miss the point. whilst we are struggling in front of goal, we seem to have say 65% possession, a few shots on goal and then concede after giving away a stupid free kick or a misplaced pass in defence. Then you can see the confidence just drain away. It is no surprise to me that we have not come from behind under Silva to win a game. We need to be more solid in defence before thinking about scoring more. We concede on average a couple of goals a game. So we already need 2 or 3 goals just to get a draw. never mind a win. We had the same last season but by the end we tightened up. I am not sure why we are so panicky and soft at the back but outfield onwards we look ok.

11.) 13 Nov 2019 16:43:13
I have mentioned ''clean sheets'' or solid defence too Degsy, they are the foundations needed to progress, and both Pep and Jurgen learnt that the PL attacking standards called for good defenders and they ''both'' obeyed this demand .

12.) 13 Nov 2019 20:21:00
We create plenty of chances. If we were even moderately clinical this season, we'd be sitting in 5th with a cushion. The league is bang-average and on our day we can play with anyone. I wouldn't be surprised if we won, lost, or drew any individual match.

13.) 14 Nov 2019 15:51:49
We do make a lot of individual errors, which is difficult to blame silva for. I would also say watching Liverpool and city that as an 11 they seem to work harder than us. I have no stats to back this up but just what it seems to my eye. They consistently press harder, and I don't just mean tactics wise. I mean the players when they press go harder than we do, a lot of ours seem to be going through the motions off the ball.

14.) 14 Nov 2019 16:29:50
I agree with you Toffe Dave they do press harder much harder then we do and they all do it the same way and when they don’t think about it they are in with purpose straight away they are obviously trained to do this because they all do it the same way, I mentioned in an early post that Liverpool press so hard and fast they are sometimes an infringement on the opposing player.

15.) 14 Nov 2019 21:34:32
Sorry coyb79, but not confident about winning any match at the moment because our approach play is so slow, we are not making defences work hard enough/ turning defenders often enough to create REAL chances.

If we had a top class finisher to put away the half chances we are getting it could be a different story.
But its a catch 22 situation no top striker is going to come to us until we start winning and looking like European probables.

That just shows in 100 minutes what its like being an Everton supporter. Terrible for 70 minutes, while all around you get through + the reds get a late goal to go through to another final.
Great for 20 minutes. Then penalties and you think were there when Pickford save the first one, but no its not to be again.

I also believe we have gone for the wrong man we need Arteta to coach some of these the basics and develop others.
Do you really think CA is in for the long haul or just to make more easy money from Moshiri.


1.) 19 Dec 2019 01:51:01
I've been "edited" I never have called that team from our former home by a colour and never will!

2.) 19 Dec 2019 10:06:45
I don't compare EFC to LFC atm full stop, why ? .

As for Arteta, as much as I 'think' he will do well at AFC, I 'know' we need a 'proven' football genius to pull this club away from the abyss .
The reason I am sure, is because we have tried and failed with so called 'potentially good managers' also we had the 'Big Sam' experience which imo put us in a bracket that did not fit us at all to say the least.
LetS aim as high as we can 'for a change'



18 Dec 2019 12:34:20
Reading that CA contract with Napoli was not terminated does that mean we will still have pay them a large settlement as well.


{Ed002's Note - The situation is the same as it was with Serri when, even though he had been replaced, Chelsea had to pay circa euro 8M.}

1.) 18 Dec 2019 16:10:22
I’m more interested in what he can do with the players he’s going to inherit before looking at who he will bring in, some of these players are very good, but Silva could not get anything out of them was it cause they don’t suit is play or are they just not good enough which on paper it should be good enough to be top 8 easy, tactically the manager is as good as there is, and hopefully if we can win tonight this season could still end up being a good season.



17 Dec 2019 02:59:30
Ed 2, what's your take EFC statement was Victor Pereira ever a " candidate " that has withdrawn the process or is somebody telling proveable lies. I don't see the point unless Pereira was never a candidate. It is just make them look stupid if he was. Though stupidity seems 2bd nature atm!


{Ed002's Note - I answered what I knew about this 10 days ago.}

1.) 17 Dec 2019 13:29:19
Thanks Ed 2, for your succinct answer, however if I had read it 10 days ago I wouldn't have asked the question.

{Ed002's Note - That is why you can search the site.}



08 Dec 2019 12:47:43
Well if we are taking a punt on Periera or Gallardo, it has to be Gallardo surely don't need another Silva clone!




06 Dec 2019 12:55:48
Is Victor Periera the board STILL playing fantasy football. Or have they done due diligence on this one. Don't know enough but looks like another Silva clone!

We need a coach with personality, unlike the recent incumbents who all had personality bypasses. They all came across poorly in press conferences and it must rub off on the players.

The next one has got to be able to organize the defense its not rocket science. He has to be tactically adept and have more than 1 plan. He must be able to inspire the team and pick them up after setbacks make them believe again.

I know we have a lack of creative midfielders, but we have to be able to give the opposition different problems. Not just playing cross field crab like football until the press us and we loose possession.


1.) 06 Dec 2019 13:31:07
Doesn't take prisoners judging by his profile.

2.) 06 Dec 2019 13:34:44
Some of these lads need a bit of Arthurs Itis in the hip to stop them swivelling sideways and lock them forward.

Munich is miles from Paderborn (Westphalia) surely Dortmund or Frankfurt Airport would be more likely, if Brands was sorting Evans deal?

Do we just buy players by trawling statistics? As we seem to buy too many square pegs for round holes.

I agree Sh, we don't want to make any last minute panic buys ( that don't work out and then on wage bill for 4 years. A loan deal ok, we've made some great signings this window. Remember NSNO, on that point is Iwobi good enough for anything more than cover considering what we have. To me another Arsenal cast off re Theo.

No to sell on value? I thought we were only giving Juve first option not a buy back clause. Can you clarify please.


{Ed002's Note - I have not seen his contract - I have no idea what terms are included.}

At least it shows Ancelotti right when he said all then names mentioned as rumoured to be coming to EFC were wrong.
Well obviously that meant no one is coming in.

No No No, we have move forward not back + sign more under performing players we have too many already.

Can someone steal Ancelotti's passport please.
If I was him and watched that team of "men" who cannot pass or keep the ball, I'd be on the first plane back to Italy.
Some of the football they played was amateurish. I've seen better on a Sunday morning in the park.

Klopp gave us a big chance to beat them and they just handed back.

At least he got to see who is not worth keeping. But on that showing most the team could come into that category.

Sorry that's the most positive I can be after that.

What game were watching Iran his touch was/ is atrocious. I don't believe he completed a pass. If you really think there were 9 worse you should go to specksavers.

Yes the team was poor but he was the worst from the moment he came onto the pitch.
