I don't think the project is fully finished yet, Brands has improved our player calibre but silva is struggling to get the best out of them so far. Maybe he is to blame for failing to land a defender, a striker, but through all the mess I see building blocks towards our future. I get the feeling that when silva goes we will have the manager brands built this team for, as it sure doesn't fit silvas style. I've no idea who that is it's just my own made up theory.


1.) 31 Oct 2019 13:22:10
if we do get rid of Silva I think it will depend on who Moshiri takes his advice from if its not Brands and one of his other advisers (that Ed002 has mentioned) then we may be in the same situation again.

Getting rid of Silva is imo of lesser importance than replacing him, surely we have now completed the circuit for naive club managerial decisions .
Hopefully the EFC 'milk cow' that attract pretentious guys that promise to be our new savior etc. are over?!

I think everyone needs to realise the situation we have at present and why we must give Silva more time.

We have gained a reputation as a club who constantly change manager. Sacking Silva now just makes us look even worse, when you think that he hasn't really done anything wrong.

1st season was an 8th place finish. 2nd season is only a quarter of the way through and he has got us into Carabao Cup Quarter Final. League form certainly looks dodgy but it's easy to argue that he has not yet been given a fair chance to turn it around.

I think to avoid negative press, you have to give him until Christmas and assess from there because if league form still stinks, then at least people will acknowledge that a change needed making. A Christmas change is not uncommon after all.

If we try for a new manager now, anybody with even a half decent reputation will swerve us because a cursory glance will show that they have to bring instant success or get sacked also. This leaves us appointing a 'journeyman' or unproven manager to fill the void and that's just destined to be another mistake.

To be clear, i do not think Silva is right for us! - but we really do need to be patient and realise the hesitancy in making a change now. We are a managerial laughing stock and need to change this perception in order to attract someone of high enough quality to take us where we crave.

5.) 31 Oct 2019 21:02:45
Half agree Worcester. If there is a chance that a top manager is available now we have to make a move for him. Marco isn't showing any sign of playing his 433 or of improving over the time he has had.
At best he will equal 8th this season.
If though, there isn't anyone out there then yes, let's stick with him until the summer. We aren't going to get relegate under him and you never know, he might win us a cup.

6.) 31 Oct 2019 21:20:16
Yes Smit I totally agree, here's the thing, Marco has a nasty little habit of shooting himself in the foot, so in the meantime let's hope he can keep the PL results fairly 'non to contentious' amongst the guys who decide his fate!
We need to abandon the good (but sinking) ship 'S. S. Marco' in an orderly fashion .

7.) 31 Oct 2019 22:16:25
Abandoning now and we could end up on the S.S. Moyes until the summer.

8.) 01 Nov 2019 07:13:57
Sadly I see a mid table finish and a loose win loose scenario this season. World beaters 1 match dreadful the next 2 or 3. Wonder how much losing his assistant has affected us.
The ss moyes ship would be a tough one, hard to accept him back, but rather him than any of the other mercenaries out there.

9.) 01 Nov 2019 08:25:51
''S. S. Moyes ''
Shiver me timbers 🤢.

The list of players linked to us is getting longer and more ridiculously insane every day, at least the press are doing there best to keep us entertained,

Nice touch from dunc in the news buying a tv for a fan, even my wife admires him after his short stint in charge.


1.) 09 Apr 2020 13:25:40
Some decent names being mentioned including Diego jota - can’t see that one happening though.

And some ridiculous ones including Jesse Lingard! Seriously hope this guy is not on our radar - he’s rubbish and his off field antics leave a lot to be desired also.

Hoping this nice weather has got to some of the journalists and they’re a bit sunstroked!



29 Oct 2019 21:52:27
Why do we struggle to clear or even hold onto the ball. On the upshot we played some nice footy in stages, great for holgate well taken header, here's to the next game can't see silva going anywhere soon his marmite management will carry on.


1.) 29 Oct 2019 23:21:39
The earliest the management will pull the trigger is the summer.
They will stick it out for a European place.
If he fails he will get the boot and we will move on.
It was the same with Kendall, nothings changed. He will get 2 seasons and rightly so. If we don't improve he will go.

2.) 30 Oct 2019 07:10:37
Is not all down to Silva yes he picks the team but some of the passing in the first half was well short of what we expect and that's down to the players on the pitch. But we're still in there.

3.) 30 Oct 2019 19:04:27
I am trying to see both debates on Kean, here is my intake, it is far too early to judge the player, his game time has been minimal, when he has played, he has been pushed out on the wing.

How many were saying the same about Bernard when he first came, would you play Bernard as a centre half, so why play the likes of Lewin and Kean out wide.

One player for me who is not getting a fair crack of the whip is Tosun, give that guy an extended start with any of the other forwards and watch our final third improve.



07 Oct 2019 12:34:44
Oh what a wonderful world it is just sack silva get this guy (insert preferred choice here) managing us.
Puts us right back into which players are not wanted and now more hassle moving them out, to more cash spent on more players.
Wasnt silva an up and coming coach once?
I'm unhappy we all are but it just shows how bad our squad really is. Limited options in defence, midfield and attack, yet we have some decent players not playing and decent players also not playing. Silva needs to grow a set and drop a couple of these lads. What' must the rest be thinking if they can't get a game whilst they flounder about the pitch.


1.) 07 Oct 2019 13:09:17
the whole point of appointing a director of football, is if we were ever needing to change manager we have a man in place perfectly suited to oversee that change, the director of football, what do you suppose we keep losing every week until we go down? but its ok because maco silva is a good coach? he's had 5 weeks to grow a set and drop these players, but he hasnt.

2.) 07 Oct 2019 15:58:36
Dunc09, He was never biscuits in my opinion and has proven so far that opinion correct.



29 Sep 2019 11:00:59
Well I said I could handle a loss for this match and I can, all credit to the lads they had a go and the scoreline flatters city, we where missing 3 of our 1st choice midfielders, add those 3 back in who knows what would have happened yesterday.
We have started a season poorly many times under many managers, it's just highlighted as we played so many teams we need to be beating, I'm not sure the panic button needs hitting just yet, we are showing glimpses of our potential, but also our many shortcomings, and may regret not getting a striker even if just for this season, there where a few available short term.

Where only just over a year into a 2 to 3 year rebuilding phase we need to be behind our team not against it, I think the true test should be next season.


1.) 29 Sep 2019 12:00:21
I was pleased we signed Moise Keane but he was never going to be the answer for this season, he is still learning and now in a different country and league, I still think we should of brought in someone that could give us a real threat up front Costa would of been idea for a season.

2.) 29 Sep 2019 12:08:17
Sensible post Dunc others could do with the same attitude and patience.



21 Sep 2019 20:16:07
We are so predictable that all shef had to do was force us inside and disrupt our wingers which they did at every opportunity, maybe a game crying out for davis instead of mr sideways, at least davis will try drive forward and not pass left or right. I did give silva the benefit of doubt but now I see he's probably great at 8 matches per season, beginning of the season against teams we should be beating, bearing a scary resemblance to last season I'm afraid a good run towards end will be too little too late this time around. Brands secured some great player additions please find us a manager with some tricks up his sleeves and not just folded arms.


1.) 22 Sep 2019 10:15:06
It was the opposite Dunc09, they played very narrow forcing us wide, knowing our crosses were unaffective.

Too much over thinking and the old signing players chestnut. We are hardly the most attractive club out there but our ace in the hole is Ancelotti. To say he wasnt aware of the situation is silly he's fully aware, we have ambition he has too and is ready for the challenge, give this project time it's only just started really.

That's twice as bothered as the 4 behind him in midfield we need his determination.

Silly season begun again, work under Ancelotti or what's his name managing manure, I'd guess dcl is a sensible lad and we will see him for a few years yet here.

Sadly we went downhill after a long period of stability under moyes who took us as far as he could, Martinez, koeman, big sam and silva took us backwards to throw blame at dunc is daft, the players responded to him and put a shift in for him, he will have gained a lot from his caretaker stint, but is not quite ready yet.

If you read statistics apparently he has made 13 mistakes leading directly to a goal, so in 145 matches roughly 1 every 11 games. Why does it seem a whole lot more, guy looks world class 1 save, but then looks like a kid on ice trying to catch a snowball on the next save.

I'd say rubbish or embarrassment before mercenary as that's difficult to prove but the rubbish part, well that's obvious. Some are sat on our payroll because nobody wants them. Your right They never performed a young kid got a chance upstaged them all, moshuri was meant to be the best thing that's happened to our club I'm viewing it as the worst at the moment.

Not sure where the term mercenary comes from, your offered a better contract in a team seemingly on the up with new owners, offering what we now know as a false dawn what would any of us do. Recruitment has suffered since Moyes days, koeman and Walsh where like kids in a sweet shop bought nothing but chocolate, why we let sam buy I'll never know, and Silva clueless to be kind, brands has had his hands tied until recently, I have faith in Ancelotti but when he pulls this off he will cement his place as 1 of the greatest he knows he needs time, we need to respect that.

All we mostly have is what the press say and there as reliable as a paper umbrella, I'd rather have a player who wants to join, but where not exactly in an attractive position but have Ancelotti attraction value, I feel we will continue promoting youth whilst buying people like allan to steady the ship, I'm not sure resale value is important as we think in some circumstances, I can name several players from each top team but 1 or 2 from say wolves Leicester and they ain't done so bad with lesser named players.
