If Silva wants to stay, which I imagine he does, then he has to change everything. Forget playing this boring 4231 which doesn't work yet we've stuck with it for years for some reason. Bin Coleman off because he's easily our worst player, stop trying to play like Man City until the final 3rd when we get bored and cross it to no one.

But he's clearly very stubborn and won't change his ways, seen that the last 2 times. That ended well.

If he doesn't make big changes against Sheffield Utd then I think most fans will give up, even if we win. It doesn't help he is exactly like Koeman in the sense he is very cold and distant from the fans all the time.

So that's why Tosun wasn't in the squad it looks like he's off to Al Gharafa? What's the story Eds.

{Ed001's Note - there was no reason he was not in the squad other than Silva does not rate him. There is an offer but that is nothing to do with him being out of the team.}

Swan not sure why but I take it your not impressed with Silva then. Do you think think the style of play we are using at the present is worse than the football we played in the recent past? Or are you just after results? With the exception of half a season under Moyes I can't think of when we have played much better to be honest. If we could get some consistency in team selection then I think we would get results. I still think Silva is trying to work out what his best team is and integrate players into the side, which I can't see happening till xmas to be honest.

Your right SA, consistency with the right players is Key, although I think the football under Martinez 1st season (fluke or not) is the best I have seen in the past 10-15 years at Goodison.

Come on - we’ve just been Beaton 3-1 vs Bornmouth - looked shaky against Lincoln - beat of Villa
You can’t say we are playing we’ll surely.

I wouldn’t say Coleman is the worst player in the team. But I will say he’s a shadow of his energetic past. I think the midfield would have looked different if it wasn’t for injuries to Gbamin and Gomes. Our pressing game was fine at Bournmouth but our lack of efficiency in front of goal was a poor reward for it.

I’d like to see Davies show that he can offer better options in the middle if the injury front doesn’t improve by the weekend. Drop Schneiderlin, put Delph there and give Davies a more attacking role. Then take your chance.

Silva will find himself under pressure if he doesn’t win the next game, according to champagne Charlie at least.

Silva knows his home form will pull Everton through, the team selection and set up ensures that.

The problem is the team selection and different set up when Everton play away, get used to it, one week everything smelling of roses followed by a curveball.

Until Silva adapts the same mentality away from home we will carry on getting rolled over.

The Lincoln City game is the only time we had a similar set up and approach and came away with a decent result against an under rated and organised team in Lincoln.

That type of set up is what we need in future away games.

All teams have to do is double up on the wide players, because that is where the ball will end up as no one is going to run through the middle.

We saw it last season, the team that starts the season is nothing like the one that finishes it.

I think Silva definitely needs to rethink his away strategy against the lower teams and tweak his away strategy against the big teams. Last season we gave the likes of Liverpool and Man u a run for their money and could have won those with a bit of killer instinct in the team.

One think is for certain, if Marco has bought in the players he has this season just to keep playing the same formation and system as last season then he most likely won't get us any higher than 7th or 8th.
