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.

23 Feb 2020 20:39:33
Unfortunately I think we have the worse midfielders in the prem except Gomez but sorry for me the rest can go.


1.) 23 Feb 2020 21:14:53
We need more pace and creativity in our midfield that much is obvious to me. The comments coming up may seem harsh to some but I think most will agree with me that it's in our best interests to find alternative solutions for these players.

1. Sigurdsson - looked well off the pace (has done all season) and even Gary Neville mentioned how bad he was (for once I agree with Gary) . I think it's time we moved him on.
2. Delph - I'm not a fan of and didn't really want us to sign. I just don't know what he offers the team apart from a backwards pass.
3. Iwobi - runs and runs but essentially doesn't really do anything.
4. Schneiderlin - has been better lately but has had enough chances now so another to go for me.
5. Walcott - too little end product and has been the same throughout his career.

Gomes and Bernard are the ones I'd keep. Nobody really knows about Gbamin as we've hardly seen him play. Basically look to rebuild our midfield in the summer. Wildcard entry is Holgate. I think he could play in midfield. I've been impressed with his passing range and reading of the game.

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with any of that howie mate..

2.) 23 Feb 2020 21:27:47
Totally agree but how on earth do we get rid of such players.

3.) 23 Feb 2020 21:53:19
Give em away.

4.) 24 Feb 2020 09:04:39
sig we are going to take a huge hit on. to be able to get even anywhere 20million will be hard with the wages he's on.

5.) 24 Feb 2020 09:08:44
Gomez prior to his injury showed his class at times. I will however go against the grain on here and criticise his slowness of play. We have an abundance of midfielders with the ability to pass sideways and backwards. Add to that we have the huge problem of having to lighten our wages bill. This is a 3 season at least project.

6.) 24 Feb 2020 09:11:24
Unfortunately GB even if we give them away we would still have to pay their wages until their contract run out and that has basically been our issue, recruitment pre Brands was shocking.



09 Feb 2020 08:42:43
Just watched the game and we need center midfielders and new goalkeeper desperate but things looking good a bit fortunate to win 3-1 but still well done to the lads at least they fought and well done to snids thought he played well but sigs was bad again.


1.) 09 Feb 2020 09:15:46
Yes sigs was poor, schneids always seems to come good this time of year, maybe playing for a move in the summer.
I'm not fussed about Pickford neither he can stay or go. If someone comes in for him in the summer let him go.

2.) 09 Feb 2020 12:59:41
I thought Morgan done well, maybe he works well with Ancelotti, not sure if he has a future beyond the season but hopefully he can continue like that until the end of the season and give us a decision to make.

3.) 09 Feb 2020 15:48:28
He does this every year Dgold. Plays well for the last few months and we buy into it overtime. No thanks. Sell him and move on.

4.) 09 Feb 2020 17:37:58
Even if he is good between now and May I doubt it would be enough to convince me to keep him. I’d just use it to get a better price in the summer. If indeed he has contract time left.

5.) 09 Feb 2020 21:17:46
I thought Pickford's interview after the game was really egotistical. Saying how well he did to not crumble after the goal. Mate you made 1 save from 2 shots on target. Pretty poor. He consistently makes mistakes.

6.) 10 Feb 2020 11:26:03
fatchris89, i agree pickfords was a howelr, but he is right the save he made minutes later many keepers don't make, especially after conceeding such a shocker of a goal his head didn't drop and done his job for the team. i'm not writing off his mistake but to say he only made one save from 2 shots on target isn't a great comparison, he shouldn't really be saving the second effort but did.

7.) 10 Feb 2020 13:11:56
I hope that howler is a blessing in disguise. He's not got anyone close to take his place. It would be foolish to drop him with our backups barely good enough for league 1.
Hopefully this fall out and the obvious shock on his team mates faces might be enough to refocus him? That save was amazing!



31 Jan 2020 17:13:19
Question for EDs and i don't want you to try and explain FFP rules but at what point did Everton start to spiral out of control with their finances did this start when FM bought into the club?


{Ed002's Note - The club has had a 70% increase in the wage bill since 16/17 - they do not turnover enough money to sustain it.}

1.) 01 Feb 2020 05:30:43
Not bothered we did t sign Anyone, but I keep reading people saying we are going to save it for the summer and buy, so my question is why can we buy in the summer are will we not be in the same situation as now? Thanks.

{Ed025's Note - it will be different si, players will be moved on and new faces will arrive, and hopefully or financial well being will have improved by then mate..

2.) 01 Feb 2020 09:41:18
Thanks ED I wasn't a million miles away in my thinking.

3.) 01 Feb 2020 11:12:27
Even if they start now it will be very difficult, given the attitude/ wish to attract top 4 type players and the wages that come with them. Ed 002 is right, it cannot be sustained while outgoings outstrip income. It will take more than next season.

{Ed002's Note - This season will do the damage.}



21 Jan 2020 18:37:35
Delph, Walcott, schneid all playing, . Think we will loose, I would never play any of them ever again . if it wasn't CA in charge I would be slagging the manager but I'm sure he knows better I hope.


1.) 21 Jan 2020 18:46:44
Injuries, needs must mate.

2.) 21 Jan 2020 18:57:10
Sorry not for me I would play the young guns 😁.

3.) 21 Jan 2020 19:01:34
Disappointed Gordon not starting after the positive comments from Carlo. Hopefully he gets another sub appearance.

Schneiderlin playing as we're hoping he does well and we may get an offer for him?

4.) 21 Jan 2020 19:19:34
Schneiderlin being linked with Southampton 13m.

5.) 21 Jan 2020 19:21:28
I reckon that's why he is playing them Gingerdan mate put em in the shop window I would have liked Gordon to start again tho.

6.) 21 Jan 2020 19:48:44
13ml I will drive him myself.

7.) 21 Jan 2020 20:33:22
I would carry him there.

8.) 21 Jan 2020 21:40:38
Goes to show the gulf between our awful players and the kids.

9.) 21 Jan 2020 23:34:07
Schnids played well tonight.



19 Jan 2020 15:28:50
I didn't mention DCL or Kean I said the midfield wasn't good enough.


1.) 19 Jan 2020 17:14:24
My post wasnt just directed at you skylark. It is more to point out that players don't simply reach 21 and stop getting any better. They are young and still have plenty of time to develop.

Christiano Ronaldo was being slated by fans and press for trying to many tricks and wasting away his career in the seasons he was 20 and 21. Needs to stop doing step over and stop losing the ball by running into blind alleys. He'd scored 14 goals in total in the league over the past two seasons.

He learnt season by season and by training hard on how to improve. The age of 22 he started to develop his game and by the age of 24/ 25 he realised his full potential.

And this guy is probably in the top 5 of all time greatest footballers.

I'm not stupid and putting any of our players in this category but it just shows you that judging a player at this early stage of their career is both naive and a bit stupid. Give time and support to these kids and they can become great.

2.) 19 Jan 2020 17:56:49
DCL is showing this season that we genuinely have a good number 9 already. And since Big Dunc took charge for a while he has stepped up another level. He is on course to becoming a very good number 9. Our front 3 are indeed very young. But they’re a threat. And other teams know this.

DCL could take his chance in the England squad with Kane out injured

Richarlison is already a pick for Brazil

Kean has a bright future for Italy.

That’s three of the top 10 teams on the planet

We really have to look at this positively as it looks very rosey for the future.

3.) 19 Jan 2020 19:52:56
But we have no midfield or defence.

4.) 19 Jan 2020 20:48:36
I wouldn’t go that far Skylark but I agree it needs strengthening. We do have injuries affecting the midfield, defence needs more work though.

Although our defence would look less shaky if the midfield could move the ball quicker. Moving the ball forward and away from the defence. Taking pressure off them and putting on the opposing side. They are so slow right now it’s frustrating.

5.) 20 Jan 2020 13:15:41
Imagine you are a defender and every time you pass the ball to a midfielder he gives you it back. Therefore putting the onus on you to do something with it.
The job of a defender is first and foremost to defend, not to be expected to play 30 yard passes to another player. If you constantly play the ball back to them then you are going to see mistakes, or see them giving the ball away.
We need midfielders who can collect the ball, turn and play a pass forward. I watched young Moise on Saturday, and in particular the runs that he was making, and not once did a ball get played into him. Now you can slate the kid as much as you want, but if he is getting no service then the goals won't come. Even Aguero would struggle to score in this team.
