`I hear what you say but I really can’t believe you’re serious but clearly you are.'

What do you mean?

On what basis is Silva a better manager than Alladyce over the course of their managerial careers?

On any rational comparison Alladyce is better.

We have more possession and pass the ball more under Silva. That has nothing to do with whether you are better or more effective.

Calvert-Lewin in for Walcott is the wrong decision imo. Walcott has his limitations absolutely but as Arsenal supporters know, he has caused City plenty of problems (and scored against them)because of the space they leave for him to run into. A more ponderous CF is playing into their hands. I really fancied Everton to score 2 today with Walcott and Richarleson's pace but this has tempered my enthusiasm.
Report Captain carnage December 15, 2018 1:49 PM GMT
Agree enpassat. Walcott has been dire recently but one game anyone with any clue would play him in is
City away.

But no. We come to city trying to play pretty patterns out of defence (which we are incapable of).
No structure, no pattern, no pace, no trickery. Just a gash keeper/centre defenders making bad decision. A couple of fannies in centre mid who dont fancy it against good players. A tiny fella out wide totally out of his depth. Richarlison goes missing as per against the top sides and DCL further decreases his value for when we sell him to a DIV I team.

As for Silva's motivational and tactical skills of late - Give me strength.

Well there's an elite manager free who may fancy a stab at a club just below the top level.

We need a radical cultural overhaul at the club and surely an out and out winner like him could bring it.

Why not give it a spin. All the alternatives have not worked.

Ps. No BS about it not working out recently for him. He won 2 trophies in his first year at United and his CV is probably the best on the planet.

I see progress even if you clearly don’t. It’s all about opinions.

I’m guessing had you been in charge at LFC you’d have had Klopp out in his first season and Sir Alex our long before his dire third season.

Jose just looks a troubled man to me. He’s totally failed to get a time out of players he’s paid fortunes for. I’m not saying he’s finished but it’ll be interesting to see how he gets on in his next job. As for the suggestion he might come to us, that’s just a non starter as his ego wouldn’t let him come to little old Everton.

Oh dear. Cry  Spurs are a consistent top 3 side rather than a top 6 side.  It seems you've underestimated them. Excited Silva is the first PL manager to concede six plus goals in a home game (one of the other losses was a 1-7 home defeat for Hull against Spurs).

Sofa... I never underestimated them, I just thought that they weren't on their game. A manager being tapped by the press, a difficult Champions league, problems with the new stadium against a, supposed, up and coming team.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Spurs were good bordering on great but that was an horrendous performance/result for Everton.

I can see a slow drift down the table now for the toffees.

At 1-3 half time what would a good/decent/aware/astute/tactician do???

The aim would be to win the second half. Barest minimum would be no worse than 1-3 full time.

2-6!!!

The fact that Mr Silva is concentrating on a second disallowed goal is worrying.

It seems he's trying to put the entire display down to a dodgy decision. That's the chant of a loser.

The fact that the ref, correctly, wrote off another goal doesn't explain conceding 6 fwcking goals.

I think we've missed the boat with selling Pickford to Utd but, fingers crossed, should they come calling again we should sell up in a shot.

Merry Christmas Everyone.

I feel Silva has some validity in questioning the goal for 2-0. His game plan was to attack and goals do change games - he attacked and at 2-0 he could of changed his system to be less open and counter. It didn't and our keeper had a shocker. Whilst its quite right Spurs had their chances too, they hadn't taken them;  2-0 would have been a task for them and albeit it may seem silly after the event it was pivotal to Everton and Silva picking up on it I have no issue with. I don't with his tactic either - we should want our manager to press and attack teams. My only reservation is with two slow midfielders we can't play with Keane at centre-back. No Gana, it has to James or Benni.

Mafe is quite right Spurs are in their best form after being - imo - effected by the world cup far more than any other club.
I'm 51 and I've never seen a great Spurs side: good sides, cup winning teams but this one has the basis of a really good side. Because of past events  I'm more inclined to see them slide away rather than build and flourish. Be good for the Spuddies to have a real go at it, though. Toby Alderweireld has to be kept (he was excellent on Sunday) and not sold to strengthen a rival.

We have an experienced striker arriving on loan and a youngster whom Brands rates very highly in the next 10 days or so with the more serious cash to spend in the summer. Dowell's going out on loan - I'm disappointed in the choice of club to be honest and Oumar is off to pastures new.

mm, we battered you twice last season. could easily have been 6-0 both times. this is a great spurs side but it's a tough school at the top of the table at the moment. we could get 85 points and still come 3rd

i've seen us win the fa and league cups but i'd give 10 of those away easily to see us win the league or the CL just once. don't think we're that far away either and remember we're doing it with one arm tied behind our backs. a lot of our supporters have completely turned their backs on going to wembley which is absolutely ridiculous really cos in a week's time we could easily be within 1 result of the lead with a lot of home games in hand

Mafe,

I honestly believe you have answered my question. 85 isn't a premier total achieved by a great side, we got 86 points in 87, a very good team and that was with a raft on injuries. We achieved 90 points in 85 with 4 or 5 games to run - that was a great side.
As for thrashing us twice last year, of course you did, so did Arsenal, they shipped 10 past us!

It's hard work being a Blue isn't it !!

A long journey home yesterday evening, 17 hour trip for no reward.

Mullered by Spurs, muller Burnley then yesterday, could have gone either way but wasn't happy with the side.

Why not just start the side that did so well at Burnley, why bring back Gueye if you're retaining the back five ?

Just thought we've lacked intensity of late, we're not pressing and it all seems to be a bit slow and ponderous.
Squad depth is thin, Theo really isnt at it, Seamus much as we love him is not the player he was, when your options that you actually use include Niasse then you know more is needed.
Report Captain carnage December 30, 2018 6:03 PM GMT
I thought Gueye had one of the best games a centre mid has had in a blue shirt for many, many years.
His energy, closing, anticipaion, tackles, passing, movement and commitment was a joy to watch. He should be the first player on the sheet every game.

Meanwhile Gomez plodded about, reluctantly tracked runners and generally played 8 yard passes to Gueye and Zouma which is exactly what Brighton wanted. His only turn of pace was when he was substituted which seemed to put some winds under his sales. I think there are major question marks over that fellas head and fitness/strength levels.

I know we didnt have good options on the bench but I was very surprised that Walcott appeared for the second half. Utterly dumbfounded he lasted 90 minutes. Every 2nd touch was a hopeless attempt at a tackle, he gave the ball away constantly, didn't give us intelligent movement and his confidence from the start looked on the floor.

In the 2nd half against Brighton we had no shots on taget and 2 shots that hit the post.
Against Lpool when we apparantly played very well we had zero in the second half.

We are a mess and are not progressing. No shape, direction, striker, poor keepers and slow centre halfs. We have an excellent centre mid holding player, and decent looking left back and Richarlison/Gylfi.

Oh and a big and loyal fanbase who have had to put up with this underchieving management, players and club through 25 years of failure.

As ever I dont see it as you cc.

I thought Gueye was his usual self yesterday, lots of effort and hard to fault but "one of the best games a centre mid has had in a blue shirt for many, many years" !!! I can't have that.

Gomez is not quick but again I see differently to you, I see a quality player who makes up for lack of pace with a brain and good feet. He's not our player and given the lack of options hes got to play.

I agree re Walcott, I thought it was like playing with ten men, not a clue why he stopped on. Every time he gets the ball I expect nothing and he rarely proves me wrong.

I cant agree we are a mess, we're most definitely a work in progress. They're is a shape, we're looking to play a more pressing game and better football, We're certainly creating more.
I repeat, Silva may not be the answer but way too early to be changing, I see his current points total is identical to Klippetys at the same stage, two less than Poccetino. He needs time for him and Brands to carry on what they've started.

"Poor keepers" !!! Pickford is just 24. Given away three goals through his errors, the most in the prem but no doubt he's a decent shot stopper and again way too early to be writing him off. I remember a very average Neville Southall competing with Jim Arnold for the right to wear our number one shirt and again I'd suggest that at that time you'd have said the same about those two as neither were impressive.

All the players brought in by Brands has to my mind been good signings, Digne, Zouma, Mina, Gomez, Bernard & Richarlison.
We just need to stay calm and let them get on with it. We certainly need a striker but there's no panic.

And we need to take the cup very seriously.

From the outside looking in, I'd say you have improved. It's just not being borne out in results yet. You're slightly hindered in the fact that the likes of Baines and Coleman are older/crocks and have gone from being among the best 5 in their position to being mediocre. Then there's the money wasted under previous managers: Bolasie, Schneiderlein, Klaasen, Pickford, Keane, Tosun, Walcott etc.

New guy may not be perfect but he's only had one window and Richarlison, Digne, Bernard and Gomes look a hell of a lot better than the kind of signings you've been making for at least 5 years before.

Give him another couple of windows and you may have the bones of a good team. You can't just keep changing manager every 5 minutes hoping to stumble on The One.

He needs time. Prior to the 94th minute of the derby we’d seen decent performances West Ham aside, results in a number of instances didn’t reflect that.

Sunday was dire, early kick offs generally are. 4 games in 8 days can’t help.

We’ve seen plenty worse under Moyes only for it to turn, big Sam was not for our club. Silva might not be as I keep saying but he needs much longer to show what he can do wether that be good or bad.

Moshiri showed with Koeman and Allardyce that he’s prepared to act but by the same token I hope he does give this manager or any other future manager all his support, now is not the time to be getting rid.

Rubbish though both Brighton and Leicester were both games could just as easily have ended up 1-0 to us instead of 1-0 defeats. We’d be sitting a comfortable 7th and looking up. It’s a very fine line. A number of our players are not at it these last few weeks but it’s hardly the end of the world you might believe reading the preceding posts. I don’t expect much in January but we do need a forward, just need to keep it all in perspective and get behind the club.

How do we all feel about the match on wednesday night?
Report EightiesDJ February 4, 2019 9:33 AM GMT
The best we can finish is 7th and with the remaining home fixtures we have it is highly unlikely we will finish 7th. Would we take the loss against city and hope the 3 points go some way to preventing 'the scum' winning the league. It is going to be unconfortable viewing no matter what. I think a good performance but a loss by the odd goal could be acceptable. The thought of beating city and 'the scum' going on to win the league is not sitting well with me. What do other Evertonians think about this?

I always want us to win every game, but wont be disappointed if we lost.

Personally, if we can't win the league, I couldn't give a rats @rse who does win it.

If Liverpool win it, fine. Who gives a fwck. But this incessant green eyed jealousy about their achievements is one of the reasons Everton have struggled over the years. We seemed more concerned about them than us.

Want us to win...and then beat Liverpool

Fear this could be a cricket score tonight.

6 home games left including

City
Liverpool
Chelsea
Arsenal
United

Burnley at home, Cardiff away, Fulham away, Palace away... our only possible point scorers.

Can we get to that magical 40 points?????

`If Liverpool win it, fine. Who gives a fwck.'

Were you born or brought up anywhere near merseyside?
Do you know the histories and politics of the clubs, especially since 1985?

If not then go and do a bit of research and stop embarassing yourself.

It would be a complete disaster for Everton football club and their local fanbase if the Kopites won the league

I'm arguing with a ****... but I've seen most Everton home games and a shed load of away games since 1962. Don't give me that holier than thou bullsh1t.

People like you have kept the blues in the wilderness for fwcking years.

I don't give a fwck what Liverpool do... I care about what Everton do. Fwck you!

Ha Ha !

Played very well these last few weeks. It was the part of the season between the two derby matches that wasn’t so clever.

Take out the final 20 mins v Newcastle and we’ve been good / very good in the last 6 games and have kept 5 clean sheets in those 6 games and scored 10 goals and could have scored more.

Much more encouraging and just need to see how the remainder of the season pans out.

Morgan to replace Gomes is my best guess.

Would you lads buy Gomes? Zouma?
Report ac April 21, 2019 11:29 AM BST
I would of gone with Davies, i think the whole forum is dying,Zouma has had a good season, depends how much the pensioners want for him .
Report Tinytim April 21, 2019 4:29 PM BST
Zouma yes. Gomes if he can hold his good form through a season would be a great buy but I would imagine expensive.
Improving Gana’s Contract and keeping hold of him is a must for me.
Report miscreant man April 21, 2019 7:31 PM BST
I was told a few weeks ago both deals are agreed in regard to wages - if they can stay. Gomes is complicated due to Barcelona's position. Zouma doesn't know but he has informed his agent to express his desire to move.
Gana has a gentleman's agreement with us to go to PSG for an agreed fee (if they still want him in the summer) - that fee isn't available to other teams. Gana is happy that scenario with the possibility of him signing an improved deal with us not out of the question but he really wants the move.

Morgan, Oumar, Tosun and Kenny expected to leave.

Fergie is still putting cones out.

It would be worrying if we started next season without Gomes, Zouma and Gana. Three players who are of a top six standard.
Report Value Seeker May 19, 2019 8:33 PM BST
Time for one of these....

Pickford, Stekelenburg, Virginia.
Digne, Martina, Coleman, Mina, Holgate, Baines, Keane, Kenny, Zouma, Jagielka, Williams, Garbutt
Davies, Dowell, Gomes, Sigurðsson, McCarthy, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Bešić,
Walcott, Tosun, Niasse, Bernard, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Lookman, Sandro, Mirallas, Bolassie, Vlasic, Onyekuru ?


Joe Williams, Baningime, Pennington, Hewelt, Connolly

The Echo reporting PSG no longer interested in Gueye, hope he accepts it and stays if it's correct, also reporting Gomes fancies Spurs over coming back. C'est la Vie.

Look at all that dead wood ? 33 Senior Pro's, a good 10 too many ?

Be sad to see Lookman go unless Brands has someone in mind who he rates more highly ?

Kenny, tough one, he looks ok but is he good enough ? Playing Zouma v Spurs at RB suggests Silva is not convinced.

The rest listed are prime suspects.

Looking forward to the season. Hopefully some class incoming players. At least it seems the click bait sites are linking us with decent young players instead of free transfers and over the hill players of yesteryear.
