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.}

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..

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.}

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.}

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.

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.}

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.
