Hi all. So I don't post very often but I just wanted to hear some opinions. I am sure it is obvious to everyone here that at present we have no clue where the goal is! In this case why aren't we playing Tosun? I'm not saying he is the best in the world but last time he came on he set up a goal and every international break he scores. I wouldn't care if he played rubbish and scored as the rest don't seem to be able to. We might as well play him and Kean up front and drop Gylfi as in my opinion he is providing very little at present. What does everyone think?

Yes I wonder why Silva hasn't thought of that.

{Ed025's Note - i think most of us would agree with that..

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 18:57:41
Mattormy as far as Silva is concerned may as well bang head against wall. Some saying Tosun is no good but on what evidence, everything I have seen, he deserves more game time than DCL or at the least play him in a two.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 19:08:32
Yep give Tosun a go, why not he's not starstruck he's used to the spotlight and the guy must be chompin at the bit by now, DCL isn't what we atm anyway imo!

Before Sky sports news did a small feature on the 5k run in aid of mental health being run today. Again more good stuff about Everton in the community and the things that really make Everton a great club.
Anyway Fergerson was interviewed and involved, did not seem to be any sign of Silva and other Portugese coaches, this disappoints me as surely tells a lot about there commitment to the club and it not just being a job.
Even Martinez while I did not rate as a manager did get involved. to me this tells you a lot about the man.
Everton is so much more than just a team that plays in the premier league and the manager whoever he is needs to get this.

Any opportunity to kick the manager, DC. We get you don't like him but this is a sad attempt at having a go at him for the sake of it. Maybe he had a family emergency? Maybe he was there but didn't want to detract from the purpose of the day? Maybe, maybe, maybe. There could be numerous reasons for him not being there, at least find out why before having a pot shot at him!

There was a typhoon in Japan Dark Clouds, maybe Silva was there and it was down to Silva.

can't judge a manager on wether he shows his face at a charity run or not, although i am done with silva this isn't a way to judge him, he's done more than his fair share of charity appearences whilst being here and getting involved is something i cannot fault him for.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 09:04:28
It's about ''results'' not 'charity appearances'

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 10:02:13
And if Silva was there you would criticise him saying he should be concentrating on training and getting the team ready for our next match. Not PR in front of cameras. In the words of Kammy, unbelievable!

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 11:23:27
There's only one person who looks bad in this thread and that's you Dark Clouds
You do yourself no favours showing your hate of Silva in this way and, quite frankly you are old enough to know better
Please, reflect on what you are doing.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 11:52:44
To be fair DC, I don't rate him either. However, he is a professional, employee and representative of EFC. You can be absolutely certain that if it was EFC related Silva would be there somewhere.

Judging by a lot of the comments here you did not understand what I was saying or did not want to understand.
Also tells me you do not love the club as much as I do. We are not a fashion team like Liverpool or United, we are older bigger with an amazing history. What I said also relates to the kind of future managers we should have.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 19:06:37
Must be hard reaching the keyboard from your high horse, Dark Clouds. Think everyone understood, but it made no sense or was of any relevance to Silva as a manager/ person. Not sure what a 5k has to do with any future manager, or history, or Liverpool and United. Literally no one agreed with anything you said yet everyone else misunderstood?

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 19:10:41
What do you love about the club DC?
You don't love the manager, most of the players and the owner.
That has to be the most ridiculous comment on here ever.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 19:19:31
Thems powerful words DC we all love the club mate, you have to be on a wind up now ?

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 19:57:30
Everyone understood your post and come to the same conclusion, DC. You love the club more than the rest of us? How old are you man? You don't like SIlva and used the fact that you didn't see him on the ssn video of the 5k to use against him! It's funny for you to blame everyone else rather than admitting the truth.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Oct 2019 22:54:28
Ed002 you've said in the past you didn't or don't think Silva is the right man, what do you think about Brands? Is he just as bad or does he just have a bad manager in front of him?

{Ed002's Note - Brands is well respected from the perspective of creating a system where youth players and senior players are coached the same way and the youth have successfully made it through to the first team. This has itself then reshaped the transfer policy where the club made a profit on sales of players like Depay, Strootman, Wijnaldum, Bruma, de Jong, Martens and Lozano and expenditure was kept to a minimum whist youngster were coming through the system. He gave success to PSV on this basis, but it is not what Everton fans or the owner want. So whilst he deserves his very good reputation, Everton do not really need his skill set.}

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 13:06:24
Brands, I wanted and still do. Have no idea (how could I) what his remit is, but assumed with a reasonable amount of autonomy he would be a positive influence. What is mysterious is why a person of his particular abilities would endorse working with a person of Silvas obvious limitations.

{Ed025's Note - i think everyone in this is culpable BCT from moshiri to the guys on the bench, i used to dream of us having money to buy top players and mixing it with the big boys (a bit like del trotter) but its actually gone downhill, i think i preferred it when we were the underdogs who punched above their weight mate..

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 13:20:01
Interesting comment Ed002. Surely it is worth giving this policy time to develop if we are to become a top 6 club with regular successes. I would perhaps think that maybe we need a manager who can work the players at his disposal better than what we have at present. However if it is not what FM wants, why did he appoint him? Was this perhaps another rash appointment by FM?

{Ed002's Note - FM uses an advisor (who is very well paid) and now a second person also has his claws in to him. Brands would be ideal if Everton were to look to start from scratch and build from the academy - but everyone is demanding instant success and that is very difficult to achieve.}

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 17:39:17
I'd love to build up from the academy, I thinks it's the future. Selling players for a profit means the club can invest and get stronger each year. Isn't that similar to what Athletico Mardid have done?

The problem with Silva is that he has his 'style of play' and won't deviate from that. No matter what players he has at his disposal.

Silva seems to play his way with, whatever players he has, even if they don't suit the system/ tactics. I assume this due to his lack of experimating with formation, tactics and squad selection.

We need a manager that can get the best from the players he has and change the system, style of play, tactics to fit the players. Whilst bringing players from the academy through and reinvesting profits.

{Ed002's Note - Many clubs have built very good academy systems.}

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 21:48:24
You would think it was simple wouldn't you. Need a position filled, so after due dilligence you presumably identify someone (and have backups just in case) . We on the otherhand need a RW so go out and get a LW, the crunch is we play him RW because only just realised we have loads of LW. For 3 seasons we need a Striker ready to hit the ground but ignore that fact and bring in potential. Have to love it.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 13:08:12
To be fair ed I think most Everton fans would love to see Brands getting the time do what he did at PSV following the same format. It sounds like the Owner doesn't though.

{Ed002's Note - It takes a great deal of time, and of course money. to build a very very successful academy and it would take a different approach to coaching. The fans would likely not have the forbearance to wait whilst this happens.I would also doubt Brands would be looking to stay that length of time either.}

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 13:50:11
I totally agree with that ED002 not sure about Brands not staying I suppose it would depend on if he was enjoying himself enough to stay.

So when Silva goes, which will hopefully be soon, leaving aside who people want as a replacement, what players would you like to see leave?

Coleman, Keane, Holgate, Schneiderlin, Walcott would all be great tbh. I know some people want Pickford gone and him to be replaced by Jack Butland (you know, the one not good enough for Stoke City right now) but let's be honest here, who do we want to see go?

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 08:42:27
Check out the sightings page my son snapped Rafa at Goodison last night. Don’t what it means I think silva needs time to get the team to gel I think if we’d got
Zouma during the. summer We’d be in better position I’m not blaming Mina just another centre half partner for keane to get used to and trust to be where you expect him to be
Big C.

To be hionest I do not judge the players at present as Silva takes all there confidence away and does not motivate.
I would like to see Kenny back as he is doing brilliantly in Germany and I am not surprised.
Would also like to see some of Unsworths boys given a chance if only from the bench.
Poor player oerformance right now is down to Silva.

{Ed025's Note - i dont know why you are giving the players a walkover DC, in my eyes they are just as culpable as the manager if not more, they are the only ones who can change things because when they cross the white wash there is nothing silva can do about it mate..

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 11:34:40
I think Minas been ok for us this season, Keane on the other hand has been terrible. Could have done with Zouma but we've got what we've got.

If Moshiri was going to sack Silva and get Benitez in I don't think Benitez would be sauntering round
Goodison killing time until his interview started.

Your son should have asked him if he was interested in the job if it was vacant. You could have got a few Bob from the rags for the story.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 11:37:09
You never dissapoint DC. I thought it had been a while since your last attempt to get Silva out.
It doesn't look like he's going anywhere just yet though.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 17:03:48
My problem with Keane is that he’s a confidence player. Something I can stomach in a striker but not a defender. So when he’s confident he is excellent, whereas when he’s not confident we tend to lose. Not good.

Liking the picture Big C, let's hope he’s here for a reason. Not sure where you got your odds from though as David Moyes is 11/ 10 across the board and 10/ 11 with paddy after a flurry of bets Thursday/ Friday.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 13:28:10
The odds weren’t mine and my son was not in a position to ask as he was on duty doing something else but got a quick pic.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2019 17:47:17
I need to issue a retraction my son did not take that picture of Rafa he was working lates in that area and sent me the picture but was unable to talk or comment further. Apparently it was doing the rounds on media. I believed he’d taken it genuine mistake by me guess I got a little over excited about what I believed was . I still think silva will get it right and we’ll be safe and have an ok season
Sorry once again.

{Ed025's Note - just one of those things mate, no biggy..

12 Oct 2019 12:09:42
Another question for ed02 what's the biggest reason top managers would be put off from joining our club? Is it no champions League or is the challenge to big or is it other reasons there are other big clubs that have or didn't have champions League when top managers joined them . has Everton as a football club became a club top managers would dread to join.

{Ed002's Note - There is a large gap between the leading clubs like Juventus, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Barcelona and Everton. The infrastructure does not exist at Everton to progress significantly, the stadium is far from being up-to-standard and the club has only managed two or three of forays in to the Europa League in the past 10 years. In order to make the Champions League it would mean dislodging three or four sides of the six or seven who are better placed to qualify right now. Whilst Everton have been consistent there has not been any sustained improvement over the past 10 years or so. Like it or not, the club is unattractive and taking a leading coach out of his comfort zone to move to the grim, wet and cobbled streets Northwest of England where there would be a significant cultural change, smog, dead & dying pit ponies laying on the street, little chance of football at the highest level and only chips and fried curry to eat only adds to the difficulties.}

Met and married love of my life in London, (early 70's) , lived and worked all over the World (kids doubt the work bit LOL) . One thing never changes, the London (south of gap) attitude and understanding of the North. 12 years working in this Country 8 were spent in London, their insular (generalisation) attitude is amazing.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 09:23:43
Worse places down south than up North what I've seen bill and I've been about myself.
