So it looks like Marco Silva, that would be a huge mistake in my view if he was appointed as Manager. It would seem though that he is being hired as head coach, that makes the risk slightly less. There are those that say he (Silva) is highly thought of, but so are Martinez and Koeman and look how that turned out. There has also apparently been a huge boardroom reshuffle but Mr Kenwright remains as decision making Chairman, God love him and for me that is also a mistake. He should be thanked for all he has done and given an honoury non-executive position, only then can the Club truly move on. We shall see what we shall see but I do have a sense of foreboding.

Fair play DFS, whilst I have a different opinion I must admit you have done this without any negativity. You make a valid point.

Having said that, I would like to see what he achieves in the premier league with a tidy budget and a team that’s top half table. His record elsewhere when he’s had a team like this has been good.

I genuinely believe he can move us forward and if it’s a three year contract, I see little risk.

Totally agree dfs Silva is also a concern for me and Bill needs to move over and give Moshiri the reigns.

29 May 2018 19:19:34
I can't wait until he starts. I'm a glass half full type of guy. I can see the positives in his career and can take heart on what previous people he's worked with have said about him.

The football he likes to play is a million miles away from MOSHIRIS last manager in Sam so I'm Hoping he's had a listen to Bill this time.

I hope to God you two get some joy somewhere in your life but bloody he'll guys, you're as miserable as Victor Meldrew. Cheer up! 😁.

{Ed025's Note - im quite happy if its silva myself john..

I don't think Martinez was ever highly rated, he never got Wigan anywhere but in the bottom half of the table until they got religated, keoman on the other hand yes he was, Silva has won't stuff in other leagues, I think he has an ability to win and is the best we could ask for, he and brand have a modern view and could be the making of us.

{Ed025's Note - im with you simon..

Don’t worry DFS I have it on good authority Silva will NOT be manager!

He will actually be Head Coach 😉 and I say good luck to him and Brands for the coming season and beyond!

29 May 2018 23:29:08
If it is Silva then I think we should judge both Silva and Brands at the end of the season. This is a new style of DOF / Manager relationship to Everton and we need these guys to work together closely. I am looking forward already to next season.

They are all a gamble. Kendall was a gamble when we first took him and look what happened. We thought he was less of a gamble when he came back the second time and it didn't work. The third time should never have happened but we decided to gamble big time then and it got us nowhere. It's worst than betting on the Grand National

Whoever it is, and it looks more and more like Silva, let's hope the footballing gods smile kindly on us rather than punish us for our negativity.

I really don't understand all this moaning on about Silva. Any appointment is a risk. A realistic appraisal of where the club stands must reveal that we would never have a chance of attracting some of the names mentioned. The club is, hopefully, in a state of transition. It is looking to build itself into a realistic competitor in all competitions. It is not in a position to attract someone with an iron clad pedigree. If Zidane leaves Real, he won't be asking if the job at Everton is still open. We should be talent spotting. Looking for a manager/ coach who is capable of buildng our club and his standing along with it. On that basis Silva looks as good a choice as any.

30 May 2018 15:17:31
Southern Toffee didn't I mention that he (Silva) would be Head Coach as opposed to Manager and as a result the risk is slightly reduced. I do not make comments in an effort to point score but as a genuine expression of my opinion/ conviction.

30 May 2018 16:20:33
In my opinion the talk about who is manager is all irrelevant when compared with who we sign as defenders this window. Jags and Baines need immediate replacements.

Williams should have already been replaced and Keane needs to show more than last season. Mori was never good enough. All this tells me we are weak in defence by 5 players (4 if Keane cuts it). That is without any injuries happening to Coleman. God help us if we have to rely on those 5 plus Cuco Martina and young Kenny again.

Whilst Kenny has got good attacking attributes, he is still poor as yet defensively. Whoever is our new manager has to deal with this immediately before we have even kicked a ball pre-season! A tall order for any manager.

31 May 2018 07:01:53
I think this unduly harsh particularly on Kenny. To judge the capabilities of a young player on the basis of his efforts in the wreckage of a team he found himself in is hugely unfair.

31 May 2018 09:09:56
Glennk, I am not saying he has no potential. but look at how we performed when him and Williams and Martina were in the team. We were bottom 3. Then look at how many goals were the result of Kenny losing possession when in an advanced position. He is just not ready yet. I was not particularly singling him out. I am indeed more bothered by the form of Williams, the ages of Baines and Jags, the fact Keane seems half the player he was at Burnley and Mori is always injured and also not that great. Tellme where you can pick a decent back line out of those players to stop top 6 teams. Then tell me who we can sign to replace three of a back 4/ 5 plus a couple of subs? Ones that will take us forward. Now read my post again and see why I said players are more important than who is manager at the moment.

The manager is the most vital part of the team Degsy. It is not just about buying and selling players and you can't slap a football manager 2018 sticker on it and expect to be successful.

The new manager has to get a formation and style of play that the players he has can adapt to and then ship out players that don't. I'm sure Silva has been studying this team along with Brands since they were approached over the past few months and will have an idea on the direction and personel for us to improve.

Some people can play in one phylosophy but fail in another and that can be a world class player never mind a kid with half a season experience.

We do need to strengthen a few areas but we must avoid another season of wholesale changes and instead utilise the current squad, clear out players that don't fit and bring in a few players that genuinely improve the squad.

We do need a commanding and talkative CB and I agree we need to let Williams go. At LB Baines is still quality and we have a potential replacement in the young lad Antonee Robinson who can be eased through just like Kenny.

What we can't have though is two world class players in every position as firstly you will end up with a very unhappy bunch of players and secondly the wage bill will be astronomical. Plus we don't have Europe either. Planning to have two players for every position that are top quality is unrealistic. You have a blend of 1st team, youth and adaptable players. Upfront and attacking midfielders, is where you have players with different attributes that can offer something different.

We were 8th by playing bloody awful and with a few good additions can be higher next season. The season after should be better again and with continuity, a clear plan and direction given by the manager, can see us eventually start challenging more of the teams above us.

31 May 2018 16:39:24
BJU of course the manager is an important part if not the most important. but with a poor squad, no manager will get us higher than we are at the moment. I think maybe you missed my point. I agree with lots of your points but add that until we have made quite a few signings, we are no better than mid table. I would have a fiver that after 10 games we are bottom half. Especially if we have a manager willing toplay open expansive football with the squad we have.
