We just HAVE to sign another center halve or 2. Look how we were last season defensively. Look how we have been pre season. We cannot go into the season hoping to win 7 - 6 every game (that was Ed025's joke) . in reality we will concede goals in most games if we start with our current squad. Talk of other forwards etc is irrelevant. We need 2 new center backs.

I'm sure we'll get at least one Degsy. Trust in M&M. Talk of Zouma this morning, I'd be happy with him.

08 Aug 2018 08:51:13
Have faith Degsy. I know it's got to be blind faith at the moment but they are working on it and hopefully you'll be happy come tomorrow night.
You might even get 2 new centre backs, another 2 in midfield, 2 new centre forwards and a partridge in a pear tree.

Lets hope so guys. The defence of last season was so bad we knew we had to score 2 or 3 to get even a draw. I would be happy with 2 center halves and a central midfielder. but would even accept just 2 center halves. The forwards will perform if given the service. If Bernard signs, that will be loads of pace back in the squad with other recent additions. The only negatives are the time they all have to gel. Half of them don't even talk the same languages! As for a partridge. as long as none are turkeys!

Agreed Degsy, we have enough across the front line to be able to rotate and have a few that can play in more than one position. It wouldn’t surprise me if Richarlison ended up playing more centrally as he progresses.
2 CBs and a DM and we’re golden. Zouma on loan would be a sensible choice. Bernard came out of nowhere, hopefully the CBs will too!

I'd be delighted with one good centre back. Let Keane, Jags and Holgate fight it out for the other spot. If they have to compete for one position it will get the best out of whoever gets chosen. Would love to see Holgate given a proper chance. Huge potential there imho. Could save us spending on another player if he shines. Won't shine unless given a chance.

As long as we as fans don't expect too much too soon. They will take half a season to take on board Silvas tactics and style plus get to know each other.

08 Aug 2018 12:03:34
Strange that, let's give Silva half a season, yet Koeman told us right from the off it would take at least 2 years for progress and yet was given short shrift. Alardyce came in to do a job, did it and more so, finishing 8th and yet given the boot. Silva, relegated with Hull, given the boot at Watford for poor performance (don't buy into this it was Everton's fault, the bloke is supposed to be a professional) , never stays anywhere for long and yet he is hired on a long term plan. Let's see by Christmas.

DFS cheer up lad for fudge sake mate.

08 Aug 2018 13:12:14
Why look for negatives even before the start of the season, let's all live in abit of hope, it will be a rocky road, but you can't say there not trying to put right the wrongs of the last couple of seasons, keoman had 2 season and what a shambles it turned into, brand and Silva have had to rid the team of players, then bring in players, so far they seem to be on the right track, our attacking play, even thou we lost our friendlies was quite good, our defending wasn't, now we are after 2 centre defenders, got a new left back, to me it's all looking good, now been reported if it's true, we are after another striker from Portugal, so let give him a chance, you never no, he might just surprise us.

I get where DFS is coming from. We panicked over Koeman. His sacking was too premature and resulted from losing Lukaku and the transfer window where we only signed number 10's. I think Allardyce arrived when Baines, Jags and Coleman returned from injury so was very fortunate. The fans got Allardyce sacked. Now we start again. I don't know if Silva will work magic, but at least we seem to be signing players in the right positions now and in the right age groups. Center halves needed today/ tomorrow.

Johny1989. I am very happy lad. This is football just a game, one of my many hobbies watching Everton. Just putting my point across is all. Stop being so cheerful, it just makes me miserable.

The pair of you have lost your minds. Trawling for rubbish to type, just for the sake of it.

Koeman was horrible.
Within the space of a month I saw our team embarrassed and out of Europa, knocked out of league cup, close enough to bottom of prem for relegation talk.

That was after spending a motsa in the transfer window, full of slow/ aging players and 3 x number 10's, none of which were cheap.

Koeman/ Walsh between them were to blame for this.

Koeman lost the dressing room and most of the fans. And too right he lost the fans. I spent the entirety of last season a laughing stock amongst mates.

To rub salt into the wound with the Europa league, we didn't even do our name/ history proud. He had that absolute Hack - williams, as captain and he got involved in a fight/ fan trouble away, after we were already being knocked out. It was a disgrace.

I also think you're flat out wrong about the Everton bid not being to blame for Silva and Watford's misfortune. It was 100% to blame, because the players stopped performing for him when they thought he wanted out, they couldn't see long term future anymore so chose not to buy into his dream. That was their loss.

Our gain in the end.
I'm really happy with how this new team of Brands/ Silva have started to rebuild our image and squad.
I also like both of their resumes and attitudes much more then the previous train wreck team.

Each to their own and degs/ dfs you're both obviously passionate fans with greats in the right place. This time, you've hit enter on the keyboard after a few too many though sorry.

I just pray we get some respect back for the club this season tbh.
The red half of Merseyside is light years ahead in all aspects and not so long ago, we had the chance to close that gap and really shouldn't have ever let this happen.

Sacking Koeman wasn't premature at all, he had lost the dressing room, was allegedly aloof and isolated behind the scenes and he was serving up some dour, unimpressive football. He had to go. Fat Sam was sacked because, once again, the football was tiresome and insipid, his attitude and ego couldn't be kept in check whenever he opened his mouth. The fans may have been calling for his head but the board are neither blind nor deaf, he talked himself out of a job with a nice wedge for a payoff. We panicked bringing him in even though no team has ever been relegated in November in the history of the prem.
