Not a 100% perfect transfer window but still a very good one where we

Signed a goalkeeper which improves our cover for Pickford and which allows Virginia to go out on loan and gain valuable experience

Signed a right back on loan for a year who will really challenge Seamus for his place. After a year we have the option to sign him if he is a success, bring back Kenny if he has improved out on loan or look at the situation again but we're now in a much better situation

Centre back is why I am saying not 100 % but let's not forget Gbamin can play as centre half so we have provided some cover and I think Mina will prove himself this season

In midfield, unfortunately Gueye has left us but he goes with all our best wishes and we have Delph and Gbamin as strong signings, Don't forget we also got one of our prime targets Gomes on a permanent for really good price

In attack MOISE KEAN! What a signing and again what a bargain he will turn out to be. He's young but is our new Lukaku and him and Calvert Lewin will push each other. Iwoebi came in very late and he is an big improvement to the squad

All in all a good transfer window and my thanks to Brands and all his team, the owner for his support and Marco for selling the project

Really good window mate.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 09:21:32
On top of this they have also managed to move out a lot of the squad that weren't getting a game with more to come until the European window closes

Others have also strengthened but we knew that would happen.
I think we have a chance of catching Chelsea and Wolves, I'm not sure Arsenals attack can offset its lack of defence and I also think Man Utd are there for the taking, even with Maguire so BRING IT ON


3.) 09 Aug 2019 17:44:28
Only problem for Virginia is my mates who are Reading fans said he had a bit of a mare for his first game and reading picked up some Brazilian keeper during the window
Hope he does get some game time though as I heard he looks a great prospect.

Hey everyone

Lot's of posts on the site which is good even if I think it's the wrong time to be even considering a new manager but that's my opinion.

In the meantime we have a match tonight that we all (whatever our views on Silva) want to win unless some of us are Red Bots.

We need to take all cups seriously this year but we also need to make changes to give some players a rest/ kick up the backside and look at some others on the fringe. With that in mind my team would be

Steks - to give him a run out

Sidibe - not because Coleman has been poor but because we need to see what he can bring to the side

Holgate/ Feeney - I think Keane has been the weakest of the CH so far this season



Davies - time to move on from Schids


Bernard - in at number 10 for Sigs



Richarlison - initially on RW but if necessary Bernard to go RW and Ricky to move up front alongside Kean


Holgate/ Feeney

Any viewpoints but let's just get behind the side for today. We all need a lift


bw2412 v2.0

1.) 24 Sep 2019 06:21:57
Not bad. Is stek still there? Lossl is no 2 now. Give him a game. Maybe Gibson is another option at cb.
Maybe 2 up top. Dcl and kean. Dcl can drop back to make a 5 in midfield if we need it. Played there before moving up top.
Bernard left, richy right and delph and Davies. Delph holds and Davies box to box.

2.) 24 Sep 2019 08:13:59
Last I heard Lossl was injured which is why I picked SteK. He was on subs bench last Saturday.

I could live with either DCL or Iwobi in the side but would prefer Ricky if we were going to play 2 strikers. DCL and Kean are both lacking a bit of confidence just now so I think Ricky is the better striker.

3.) 24 Sep 2019 09:17:49
'we need to take all the cups seriously' includes stekelenburg in hsi starting eleven? mans useless, hologram.

4.) 24 Sep 2019 14:09:09
wblue2 to be fair mate I’m quite sure Stekelenburg at very least knows the basics which is more than what could be said for Pickford at the minute. Blokes a liability at times.

5.) 24 Sep 2019 15:19:27
Stekelenburg is awful, he is the worst keeper we've had in years, backup or not.

You cannot take the cup seriously if anyone wants him to start.



23 Sep 2019 10:27:19
Right from the start let me state that I've got no coaching badges, I played recreation football quite well but never at a good standard

What I am is an Everton supporter for decades and I've gone through the highs of the Kendall era and the many, many, far too many years of not winning anything. I'm as frustrated as any of you but I just don't see the point of changing the manager yet again, especially when all of you calling for it can't agree of who you would want to replace Silva. I've asked Swan and Pauly in the past who they would like as manager but not heard from them as yet. I'll make a bold statement - whoever it is some will like them and some will hate them. I honestly think it is too early to start all over again and that Silva will put it right and get us doing what we all want - winning games

From my viewpoint we have made some good signings but they are not ideal signings. They will probably turn out to be excellent signings but not immediately. Why?

Kean - a tremendous prospect but please - he is 19 and living in a new country for the first time. If we expected him to hit the ground running we were crazy. He needs support and nurturing which is why I think Silva left him on the pitch on Saturday as substituting him would have impacted his confidence which is fading as evidenced by the couple of wild shots he had. As back up we have DCL who is also lacking confidence in front of goal and Tosun, who for all his supporters, is short of Premiership quality. My own view is we might have to move Ricky back into the centre but that weakens our wings

Siggy - just over 12 months ago we were complaining that we had 3 number 10s. Now I'd struggle to know who is the cover for Siggy. I've heard Bernard or even Iwobi mentioned but neither of them are the goal threat that Siggy is. If he was playing like he was at the back end of last season it wouldn't be an issue but he isn't and it is a big issue for Silva. If we drop him who gets the goals he has got for us?

CH - we needed one more signing to add strength at the back but I agree with some of the other posters and think our main problem is not scoring early (or at all) in games so we are getting nervous and overstretching ourselves for a breakthrough. People are saying we don't recover from going behind. Well - if we're struggling to score at 0-0 then it's going to be even harder at 0-1

Midfield - the loss of JP and now Gomes is a blow. I (my uninformed view) is that Davies should be playing over Schids, even if it is just for his energy. The sooner Gomes is back the better and I'm looking forward to seeing JP fully fit and how he handles the premiership

Sidibe - I'm Ok that he is here as cover for Seamus at the moment and who I believe has been getting some unfair criticism. I think Sidibe will start tomorrow and we will see how he does

Walcott - have to say I don't know why he gets into the squad unless it is for his defensive cover but I'd like to see Anthony Gordon on the bench in place of him but am I putting too much pressure on a young lad

So much for the ramblings (but I hope they were constructive, rather than the destructive ones with no solutions, that we see on here so often) of an old man who just wants to see success for his team

First time poster here.
I don't like Silva and never wanted him in the first place but i don't think we should sack him after 6 games of the season.
The way the club is being run is what really worries me, we waste so much money on poor recruitment and don't really seem to have a clear direction or strategy.
Personally Eddie Howe would be my choice, he ticks all the boxes for me and he's a blue which is a bonus. Thoughts?

2.) 23 Sep 2019 11:45:55
Welcome to the madhouse Blue Nose

I think the days of poor recruitment are coming to an end. Our signings over the last 2 summer windows have been good ones but they take time to integrate into the side - any side.

As far as Howe goes you get the 50% in favor 50% against just from me. I like some of the football they play but defensively they can be all over the place (just not against us) Some bad signings, Ibe for example but some good signings. He's a mixed bag for me and not an upgrade in my opinion, I'd much rather stick with Silva this season and see what he can do.

3.) 23 Sep 2019 12:27:04
Yeah I'm all for given the signings time mate, its the big fees for average players (average imo) . I think there is quality to be signed for less.
Yeah fair point and Ibe has been a disaster, i think it's how much Bournemouth punch above there weight and i feel he seems to get the best out of what he has, plus the style of footie.

My other suggestion if he was available would be the Rennes coach Julian Stephan, really has the team going and has a very effective system.
I'm no coach either but looking at the squad, i think we have great wing backs in Digne and Seamus (kenny coming back) would like to see a 3-5-2. Helps out our defence, with 2 up top i think dlc, richarlison kean and tosun would improve greatly.

4.) 23 Sep 2019 12:48:53
Not fussed on Howe. I’ve got no problem sticking with Silva as long as there’s a swift return to where we were end of last season.

5.) 23 Sep 2019 13:11:05
Excellent post bw2412 v2.0 many nails hit firmly on the head, and even though many are not convinced yet we have little to gain sacking him, and after that shambles I wanted him out, but once I'd thought about it we have had 2 bad results, our midfield has missed its 2 best players 1 injured 1 surprisingly sat on his backside, we have seen what this team can do it will click into place soon.

6.) 23 Sep 2019 13:26:52
Who would i go for as manager?
I wanted fonseca from the start.
If you asked me now, as fonseca is staying with shaktar, i would have to say van bommel.

He has worked closely with brands and brands himself rates him as the best young manager in europe.
I don't want mourinho, arteta is a massive risk, we can't get simeone so i am being realistic here by saying van bommel as he and brands have worked successfully together.

Brands was told he was working with silva ( i don't think he had a choice? )
I got behind silva when we went on our run last season but we haven't built on that. In fact we have gone backwards. He looks out of his depth. I might be a bit harsh on him here but the fact we haven't come from behind to win a prem game under him is worrying for me. Our away form is abysmal. I can't watch us go out the cups to lower opposition again and have a good run at the end of the season. Sorry but he has 3 games in my opinion to turn it round.

7.) 23 Sep 2019 15:07:25
Hi Pauly

I'll be honest I don't know enough about Van Bommel as a manager but on quick look he'd be a hell of a gamble. No Premiership experience as a player or a manager, a good win % but it is in the Dutch league which is a bit like the Scottish league - 2 teams dominating it. Hasn't won anything yet as a manager.

You say Brands rates him but he also rates Silva very highly and you don't like Silva so what does that tell us

The other key question is would he come to us when the seasons have only just started. Brands wouldn't move until the end of the Dutch season as he wanted to be loyal to PSV. What would he think of Van Bommel if he was prepared to jump ship?

I honestly don't believe we should be even considering a change of manager at this point of time as I don't believe we would get the right manager right now.

8.) 23 Sep 2019 20:32:06
I was only answering your question bw. i really don't know where to start mate or where the answers lie. I do know this though. we are a terrible footballing side atm and our manager looks completely lost. Infact i'd say we look worse than last season. a lot worse.
We don't look like scoring at all and we don't have clean sheets in us anymore. we have played games we were all expecting us to win and soon we face tougher opponent's. we could be in for a real hiding and that will only increase the bad feelings and in turn the venom will be spewed out at our home games and i don't think silva has it in him to cope with that treatment.



15 Sep 2019 19:55:04
Poor result today. I'm a fan of Silva but felt we were late in our substitutions today. Howe brought on Fraser first and benefited from it. We reacted but it was too late

I think if we had made the first changes we would have been on the front foot instead of chasing a game that had got away from us.

Points lost needlessly.

bw2412 v2.0

1.) 15 Sep 2019 20:50:26
I’m not a Silva fan but I recognise we need to give him a chance.
I think Sigi has to hit the back of the net to start taking pressure off Silva and the team.

The real problem I see is that we don’t seem to have improved despite all the investment - let’s face it we have had a really good run of fixtures - villa, bornmouth, palace, wolves, and Watford plus shef Utd next week - couldn’t have picked a better start really

I think we are a better team on paper but not getting the results or performance which I think ultimately will cost him his job.

I do feel a little sorry for him that he asked for a centre half as a priority - 2 goals today were clear centre half problems.

2.) 15 Sep 2019 21:04:59
I don't think a centre half is the problem tbh. Yes Keane is awful and yes we needed another one.

But it's not even defensively that's the issue, it's going forward. Nice pretty passes in the middle, eventually we get bored, play it out wide, cross it in, lose the ball, rinse and repeat.

We either need to go 2 upfront or have a flat 4-3-3 and get Iwobi and Richarlison right next to Kean.

But no, Roberto will play 4-2-3-1 against Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday all the way up until he eventually gets sacked. Same predictable lineup and boring tactics every game.

We need a winner in charge or at least a young manager who has managed good teams. But once Silva is gone I suspect we will get Howe, Dyche or Arteta. Same old Everton, we aren't getting top six and that should be enough go get rid at the end of the season. We will probably win more home games than we lose, will probably only win 2 or 3 away from home and will get flattened by all the top six home and away. Prepare for a long horrible season lads. This will make Allardyces season look like our title winning sides.

3.) 15 Sep 2019 21:18:34
The three goals we conceded were very poor. We seemed to be lacking pace too as we were fouling a lot because they were getting goal side of us too easily. I’m not sure what Schneiderlin does also, he just seems to try to make tackles but fouls instead and never passes forward which is a big problem because he occupies space in front of our back four.

And even though we press, we can’t seem to do anything with the turnover ball in such a dangerous area. We should have punished Bournemouth for the amount of mistakes we forced them into. In all I thought the defence was lamentable, the midfield sloppy and the forwards pretty much impotent.

Sorry it’s a bit negative, I’m just reflecting my mood after a really bad performance.

4.) 15 Sep 2019 21:50:30
It has been the same every single away game in the league this season, lone striker, we changed it against Lincoln, attacked and scored 4, same again against Wolves and another 3 goals and decent performance.

As long as Silva sticks with the one up top for away games, we will keep on getting rolled over.

If it works at home then why not away.

Really hate saying this but our neighbours fear no one, they play to their strengths and let the opponents worry, how many times do you see them rubbish themselves away, never because they stick to the strongest tactics and formation week in week out.

Bourmouth, Palace and Villa away and we go over cautious.

Fair play forced injury, but why change a winning team and tactics.

5.) 15 Sep 2019 23:32:21
Lots of money spent but same mess as last season, Silva depresses me so much and watching him sulking on the bench is so annoying.
Even his coaches did not sit by him.
He has zero motivation skills, no plan B and no tactical knowledge, why do fans support this failure and con merchant.

6.) 16 Sep 2019 01:37:08
Because we beat Wolves and Lincoln mate. That's all that matters apparently.

7.) 16 Sep 2019 09:06:59
No plan B really is the problem. Even though DCl scored I thought he offered nothing. He works hard in defence but not in attack. He doesn't make runs, just seems to make sure he holds line with the last defender. All the possession we had and no end product as usual. He needs to be kept away from the starting 11 imo.

8.) 16 Sep 2019 13:15:07
I don't get this 4. 2. 3. 1 system it's never going to work without gomez, I know he has his doubters but can make things happen. As for scnerderlin needs dropping for davis, both Davis and delph have heart and drive. And dcl and Touson might have benefited from playing next to each other. If sigs ain't doing it play bernard there give him a kick up the arse. Howe and his players knew what team and what way they would play would turn up, we have all these options up front we should be using them.



01 Sep 2019 20:41:22
A good win against a good side.

Still a bit to do but great spirit shown. Great display from Delph and 2 goals from Ricky.

We are improving and that is all we should ask for. Keep improving lads

Let's be positive and believe Silva will have them playing well enough that we don't need him.
We have a good strong squad now.

Fitting Bernard, Iwobi, Calvert Lewin, Richarlison, Kean into top 3 is a challenge

Sigardson, Gomes, Gbamin, Delph, Davies, Scheiderlin into middle 3 tough

And there's others who will be fighting to show that they deserve a chance as well

What great problems for Silva to have.

Not the best match against a very poor Southampton side, especially in the first half

The biggest positive was that the 'team' won, Everybody worked for each other and fought for each other. No one put their heads down when the Saints equalised but they picked themselves up and found the winner.

Some glimpses of good football but let's not kid ourselves overall it was tough and it shouldn't be against a Saints side struggling far more than even we are. If we can grind out another win against Norwich though our confidence could return and, with confidence, there is some evidence that we could be a good side

Keep the Faith. COYB.

It would be good for us if he did go on a goal run

I was excited when we bought him but it's all been downhill since then

Some goals might help us recoup some of our investment in him and. at the end of the day, I think he always tried for us, so good luck to him.

Based on what I'm hearing from the U23's I think Beni B deserves to be considered ahead of Scheiderlin

Also, the last couple of matches we've had what I would call 3 centre forwards in Tosun, DCL and Kean on the bench. By centre forward I mean someone who's strength are leading the line and that are not really suited to being on one of the wings. I think we would be better balanced rotating them so that only 2 are on the bench with Anthony Gordon taking the other place.

That is of course unless Silva wants to play one or two of them from the start, either together with Ricky (who is my choice leading the line at present) or moving Ricky out wide and putting one of them in or playing 4 4 2 with 2 of them in. Whatever line up I think it still leaves an opportunity to put Gordon on the bench and get him on at some time during the game.

Who can argue with the sentiment? There's been a lot of talk of replacing Silva, same as we had with Allardyce, Koeman and Martinez. Lot's of unrest but no clear understanding of the way forward. No clear indication of who everyone wants.

Whether we stick with Silva or gamble on someone else I wish we could say OK that's it for the next two seasons - not start getting restless after a couple of matches because we look like Muppets when we do it.
