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.

I'm getting to the point where I'm starting to give up on Everton I think football has changed so much and we have stood still and I can see us falling away and becoming a has been club that was once winning trophies to just another team in the lower leagues just like Nottingham forest and the likes there are to many teams above us that have more income and are better run and have a bigger name and I can't see any way back I'm afraid.


{Ed025's Note - i get how you feel skylark but we cant give up on them mate, its very frustrating and we do seem to be regressing but we have to keep the faith as there is no alternative, its the hope that kills you as they say..

1.) 23 Aug 2020 21:15:51
Keep the faith mate.

2.) 24 Aug 2020 09:55:27
Us old gits thought we had seen it all, from Catterick, Kendall to Walker and Silva. To truly move on is impossible until we have a genuine change of 'all' the old guard. Sorry (I really am) to say it but if coaches and backroom staff have been changed, a competent Manager and DoF in situ and yet still problems persist! Logic dictates that efficient leadership higher up is going awry.

3.) 24 Aug 2020 12:23:20
We have been reduced from a supermarket to a corner shop over the last forty years.

4.) 24 Aug 2020 14:30:58
Starting to give up on Everton, Skylark? Thought you did that the other season! Chin up mate, things can only improve from here now that we have a manager with pedigree, once he can stamp his mark on the club then we will be fine.

5.) 24 Aug 2020 16:12:40
Keep the faith Skylark

For every Nottingham Forest or Blackburn Rovers or Sunderland there's a Leicester or Wolves, Sheffield United or even Spurs who have risen again

It's a bumpy, frustrating road and I wish we were in the fast lane instead of it feeling like we are on the hard shoulder with 2 burst tyres but at least the SAT Navs working and we are pointing the right way (I think)

Keep the faith


6.) 24 Aug 2020 16:40:14
Don't think we have a sat nav bw I think we have an old road map A_Z.



19 Jul 2020 11:37:58
Can anyone see a way out of this mess we are in with so many clubs improving on and off the pitch and now possibly Newcastle being the next to get a new owner there are so many clubs now above us leaving us behind to play catch up they will make it difficult for Everton to attract new players.


1.) 19 Jul 2020 12:58:42
Leicester did. literally within 3months.

2.) 19 Jul 2020 13:07:48
This period of 2 or more games a week has exposed an already exposed back line. Season starts with 3 CBs and will finish 1. That's a big problem.
We have no creativity but 1 or 2 choice signings can revolutionise that area next season. And a couple of our players (Gomes particularly) will only benefit. As will the strikers.

We have been blessed this season with DCL pushing on. I am still to be convinced he will ever be prolific Harry kane style. However I do think he has the makings of being a great number 10.
I still think in an ideal world that Everton sign a 27 to 31 year old finished article striker. But if we go again next year with DCL and Rikky, so long as midfield is restocked, we should see an improvement regardless.

Goalie needs a strong number 2 at the least. If we get an offer (can't see it myself) that makes a profit, I say flog Pickers and get 2 new keepers. But again, if we fix CB and CM, the knock on effect should see a major renaissance for our number 1.

What I think I'm saying is this period has ended badly after a great start. But I'm not sure it's as badly broke as we make out. Think we are smarting still and looking into the gloom.

A pre season no matter how short with Carlo and some fresh blood. Think this season to next will finally be the giant step towards progression we have been dreaming for these last 4 years.

It's going to be alright lads.

3.) 19 Jul 2020 13:53:35
I'm not to sure but hope your right.

4.) 19 Jul 2020 18:57:07
Things will move now that Moshri has seen (been forced to see) the light. Ancelloti is no fool.

5.) 19 Jul 2020 21:09:35
Just because it’s taken 4 years to get into this mess doesn’t mean it will take us 4 years to get out of it football can change so much spurs were champions league finalist couple years ago and went into meltdown within 12 months lots can change.

6.) 19 Jul 2020 22:07:48
DCL Is not the answer. His first touch is atrocious. Couldn't trap a bag of cement. I know it's all about opinion but he's not for mr.



16 Jul 2020 21:00:44
I don't understand why everyone is perplexed by how bad we play it's easy to work out, every single player we have is second rate and I mean every single one and why they keep getting picked by every manager we have is the real question . The season Vis over for us so why for god's sake just drop the lot and play the young ones we have nothing to loose. this team will be relegated next season.


1.) 16 Jul 2020 21:14:38
coudnt agree more mate.

2.) 17 Jul 2020 01:17:52
I honestly think and it's my view where safe, could the teams be Ancelotti's way of your not good enough, and your not, the real work starts the next 2 to 3 years, anyone expecting a massive improvement before then is sorely mistaken. He will buy a couple to steady us while building up a team, non of us has patience but its needed lads.

{Ed025's Note - fair comment dunc..

3.) 16 Jul 2020 21:14:38
coudnt agree more mate.



12 Jul 2020 16:29:16
What has happened to this club how can we be in so much of a mess we have brands and CA at the club and we look like a pub team I know FM is building a new stadium but I'm starting to wonder if it's all down to him.


{Ed002's Note - I have explained repeatedly about the recruitment policy. The difference is that it, I understand, now largely in the hands of Brands rather than Moshiri's neighbour and another chap. But of course there are now FFP issues to address and money is a problem due to lost income from the pandemic.}

1.) 12 Jul 2020 16:54:25
I just get the feeling FM has messed this club up maybe to much ed?

2.) 12 Jul 2020 17:48:17
He’s not messed it up. But it’s not been the success we expected. Just look at the stadium plans. We’re way further ahead on this project than on previous failed attempts. Some of which were distasteful to say the least. But Ed has banged the drum in this advisor issue and to be fair it looks as if it’s harmed our recruitment and delayed possible success by a couple of years. If he can now let Brands do what he does best we might start to see improvement in a few years. And if we can keep Ancelotti sold on the project (after what he has just said on the wolves performance) I imagine we will be a lot happier for it.

3.) 12 Jul 2020 18:13:06
If it's the case and brands can now do what he was brought in to do and those advisors binned, can see the faint glimmer of hope just if I squint through a telescope, Ancelotti said he is here for the project he knew this season was another nothing season. Yes its embarrassing but I hope he is using this as a you can go you can stay period, europe was a Pipe dream at best I know it sucks but have patience let him build his team,

4.) 12 Jul 2020 18:40:28
So ed002 are you saying that the third party advisors are no longer getting as involved in transfers as they were and now brands is finally getting a chance to do the job he was brought in to do?

{Ed002's Note - That is my understanding.}

5.) 12 Jul 2020 18:57:26
That’s the best news I’ve had this summer Ed.

6.) 12 Jul 2020 20:12:31
Cheers for the reply Ed. Sounds like the penny finally dropped with Moshiri. Now let’s see what brands can do - won’t be a quick fix but hopefully a season on season improvement.

7.) 12 Jul 2020 20:27:28
Well losing 3-0 ruined my birthday today but hearing that these third party advisors are out of the picture has made my day!
Thanks for the update Ed!



12 Jul 2020 14:29:01
Well all I can say is it's a good job it's CA iin charge or we would be calling for his head.


{Ed025's Note - if he cant or wont change things skylark i wwill be asking for it myself mate..

1.) 12 Jul 2020 14:41:01
Think I am, he still plays from the back? Never seen a more boring team.

{Ed025's Note - me neither mate..

2.) 12 Jul 2020 15:31:52
Ancelotti may well pack in, think he may be regretting coming.
