Great news about Pickford he's got a great future. still not convinced by Silva but will support him anyway but he needs a win, a performance and a clean sheet to take the immediate pressure off that allows him to shape his team. let's hope he gets it!

Does anyone know why we are playing league cup next week but no one else is?


1.) 27 Sep 2018 22:44:51
To fit in with that red lot.

2.) 28 Sep 2018 16:27:11
Chelsea did not want to play Their game on the Tuesday, the Reds were happy to play either Day, it was to accommodate Chelsea not our neighbours, so we chose to play the following week, rather than last Tuesday.

Should we beat Southampton, we will not have the same scenario in the next round.



17 Sep 2018 22:37:17
So what's changed? . since Moyes left what has actually changed? . other than shelling out over the odds for average players and promises of success from a billionaire investor nothing has changed.
Same old story. injuries, bad luck, poor decisions are the same excuses being used from Martinez and before long Silva too.

How can an unproven manager who jumps ship more often than Uncle Albert be the answer?
Yet again we have the promise and all die hard fans are sucked into the "plan". what we actually have is 6 points from what should be 15 with probably the easiest start to a season any manager could hope for never mind a new one with a statement to make.

Why o why is it always Everton that allow the "bad run" to end be it a team or individual player?
The kids are not good enough, Schneiderlen is not good enough, Tosun is not good enough. I could go on!
Ferguson must go and Silva needs to show very quickly why the owners have put so much faith in him because I for one cannot see it!


1.) 18 Sep 2018 06:44:29
kids aren't good enough yet kenny was one of best on the pitch, morgan not good enough yet we have fell apart every time he hasn't been on the pitch.
you talk about getting sucked into the plan then proceed to waffle about statements to be made? is that not the same thing, suck it up mate and either support or go follow city if you just want an easy ride.

2.) 18 Sep 2018 07:28:09
Jumping on the manager after 5 games is just ridiculous. I'm pretty sure every one of us would want more points than we have. Yes some did get a little carried away with all the optimism but if the alternative is just being miserable and banging on about Moyes then sorry I'll be with optimists.
Things may not work out you may be right, but excuses or not you cannot say injuries/ suspensions have done Silva any favors.
We bought in a lot of players, but unlike other coaches Silva did not try and rush them all into the team, he was patient and it was looking OK. Silly suspensions and a few injuries later and he has been forced to play players who either aren't ready or aren't in form.
Recruitment wise Richarlison, Digne both look class, Bernard showed he may be too and they are all new recruits. There is plenty still to be optimistic about but for some reason you would prefer not to see it!

3.) 18 Sep 2018 09:10:40
Some did the exact same thing last season with Koeman and look at the teams we had to play then in the first 6 games. Will Silva last past Christmas? Injuries will play no more bigger part than it did for Koeman. What will, is the fans ability to stay patient with the management and team until they gel. Silva's change in playing style may give him a little more leeway with some but as you can see some fans are not happy already. For me its fundamentally down to the argument of what type of football are we prepared to watch. Pragmatic football based around defensive solidity that gets results occasional wins mainly draws, but not pretty to watch or a more expansive attacking game that is high risk in the fact that we need to score more than concede. To me it looks like the same situation ManU are currently in the process of trying to figure out with Mourinho. It's said patience is a virtue and I can see why. Patience is what we need but whether Silva get enough, time will tell.

4.) 20 Sep 2018 15:46:35
You can look for blame in so many ways but quite simply defensive errors like a suicidal throw out by Pickford, ball watching centre backs and strikers that could not hit the pre verbial barn door!
Ifs and buts except the outcome and the post motel would have been very different!

That was poor. Coleman, Walcott both very poor and just don't work together.
Thought Bernard was also below par .
Tosun is never going to be a Premier league player so think we need to cut out losses.
Think the Liverpool game has knocked us for 6 as 2 games that were "dead certs" have seen 4 points dropped.
Really not looking forward to Saturday now.

I do now see why Lookman doesn't get a game as again he was poor.


1.) 10 Dec 2018 23:40:04
Using the Liverpool game as an excuse is putting your head in the sand Trev, the fact is we are no more than very average at best.

2.) 11 Dec 2018 00:23:02
Think I must have been watching a different game, I thought Bernard put in a shift both in attack and chasing back, one of his better games, made the odd stray ball but I thought he played fine.

For me it went out of shape when we threw Lookman, Calvert Lewin and Tosun on.

Personally I would have put two of them on with Tom Davies supporting in midfield.

What we did learn is a couple of forwards are needed to take us to the next level and let Lookman, Tosun and Niasse find other clubs, none of the these will give us the goals on a regular basis.



02 Dec 2018 21:05:33
Thank you Mr Silva for restoring "the derby". cannot remember the last time I watched a derby from start to finish without wanting to go and put my head in the oven.
Forget the result as it was one unbelievable individual error but the performance was immense and shows how far we've come in such a short space of time.
Even enjoyed Klopps "invasion" as it underlines the passion. also a big compliment as I can't recall any other one of their managers so excited to beat us. he said we are the best he's seen and he is right.
Lookman to start and 6 points by next Monday night and things will really start to get exciting!


{Ed025's Note - im proud but gutted trev..



28 Oct 2018 22:03:38
Love Coleman to bits but I really think it's time we changed the RB position.
He's been an absolute rock for us over the years but he's just far too predictable and gives the ball away far too often for my liking.
I'd use him for cup runs and either give Kenny a long run or wait for January and enter the market.
Also Lookman has to start. he will be a class player given a run. and a better option than Walcott I believe.
My other concern is how does Mina get a game as to drop either Keane or Zouma would be unfair yet I'm desperate to see what all the fuss was about.
Silva starting to prove his worth with the displays and more so the maturity of his post match comments. only better times to come.


1.) 28 Oct 2018 22:38:44
Agree, thought it for a few weeks now that Seamus has lost a yard of pace. He can still do a job but feel against better players he will get found out. He doesn’t seem to get forward as much as he used to. It’s a shame but like Baines it happens to everyone. I don’t doubt he still has the passion and we still love our 60k player.
Walcott is still a good player but had a poor game today and no player is guaranteed to start and it’s good that we have competition for places. Lookman on form looks a threat and deserves his chance.
Richarlison should be moved out to the left as I think Bernard needs time to adapt to the English game but when he does he will be a top player.
A Striker must be a priority ASAP Tosun is not a first choice striker and DCL is still learning.
It’s good that we have options though.

2.) 28 Oct 2018 23:04:40
Keep singing yes do agree with you, United where pretty good today and we are a long way off being a top club but going in the right direction I think.

3.) 29 Oct 2018 05:59:58
I disagree with most of that. I think we were in that game. I think we created chances. I think in another game we might have sneaked a draw. I think we put a fight up until the last minute and went for a win. I also think it is a million times better than it was the last 3 or 4 seasons. Finally I think if we keep conceding 2 goals, we will not win many games. So although Keane and Zouma may be "playing well", there is a reason we keep conceding goals and I am not blaming Coleman for that. I think we need Mina in and then we will see how we do. We may not be a top 6 side yet, but we are certainly a thousand times better than last season and at least have a platform to build on. The top 6 sides do not concede 2 goals every game. They may score more than us overall, but the main difference is they do not concede as many as us.

4.) 29 Oct 2018 06:50:00
It's not one our best grounds to go to but most of them put in a good shift, but it looks like Walcotts head could be elsewhere. Anyone fancy Vardy the papers are linking him with us again?

{Ed025's Note - we do need a CF penysarn but im not sure that vardy is the answer, hes a bit one dimensional for me mate..

5.) 29 Oct 2018 07:15:23
Your right Eds but he will run all day mate, anyway it's only paper talk again, but what do you thinks going wrong will Walcott its two weeks running now he's not been himself.

{Ed025's Note - i really dont know penysarn, the link up between him and seamus is not working as well as him and kenny but he has to make it work, he also needs to track back more as he left coleman exposed against their best player mate..

6.) 29 Oct 2018 07:22:02
Good call on vardy being predictable. He relies on pace the good sides nullify him. Said for ages on our flank defenders Baines and Coleman are WB's not FB's and often out of position
We appear to have sorted the LB with Digne though. At risk of repeating myself, recruit a CF (god knows where from though) , a RW and RB (Kenny a run as first choice! ) .

7.) 29 Oct 2018 14:18:46
I was one of the ones who thought we were hard done by in some of early games, the Wolves and Bournemouth games. Some of the refs decisions against us have been nothing short of scandalous. I was at the game yesterday and once again we were robbed by the ref. Both teams had good spells and some good chances but a couple of dodgy decisions has robbed us of a point. It was never a penalty and Smalling should have walked.
I for one cannot wait for VAR to be introduced, because if we had it this season we would be a touch higher up that league.

8.) 29 Oct 2018 16:02:44
Tbh smit I thought smalling shouldve walked in the first half.
For me that was a studs up tackle from behind and how he never got a second booking for the pen is mistifying.
We gave them too much space again and we got overun.
We had the chances to win that game but as soon as he gave that pen to them it was an uphill struggle.
The positive is we kept fighting till the end and deserved at least a point.
We will get there though.

{Ed025's Note - we will get there pauly, on the first issue he could have sent gana off for exactly the same thing (even though we know he got the ball) so we cant really complain mate..

9.) 29 Oct 2018 16:49:51
That's true ed and tbh I thought he was going to book gana.
I still think the smalling tackle from behind would be been a straight red at any other ground.
I'm keeping positive about the result though because we dominated at times in the second half but the referee determined the game and I'm tired of being on the receiving end of such bad decisions.
Arsenal and man Utd have resulted in losses and I just want to see us win those games rather than just have a good performance ya know? I'm happy we did enough in both games but it still goes down as failing against the so called top 6.
I honestly believe we will crash that party soon though so I'm trying hard to keep my patience.
Gomes is going to be one of our greats in my opinion and we need to get in first when he comes up for sale.

{Ed025's Note - martial played very well pauly but for me gomes was the best player on that pitch, he is a superb player and as you say i hope we have first dibs on him mate, we need a quality CF in january and then im sure we will be giving the bigger teams a hard game..

10.) 29 Oct 2018 18:02:56
Spot on ed. Totally agree.
The big question though is just who do we actually buy as a CF?
We need to unearth an unknown gem in my opinion.
That's the only way I can see us getting value for money.
It's a big ask I know but I really believe that's our way forward.
We would have to make a massive bid for any big name goalscorer and let's be honest here we can't offer European football just yet so it would be hard to convince an established name.
We shouldn't be looking at giroud either.
We should look to our scouting network to find the next big goal machine and get him at a reasonable price.

{Ed025's Note - its a tough one pauly, i wanted arnautovic when he left stoke but of course that ship has sailed and he looks chelse bound im hearing, if want a big name then he will of course cost top dollar and even though moshiri is prepared to splash the cash its still a big ask, we may need brands to weave some of his magic mate and as you say get us the next big thing...well heres hoping..

11.) 29 Oct 2018 18:42:04
With most of us and reports saying that Walcot was/ is currently the weak link in the way Mr Silva likes to play then surely now we will see if Mr Silva is as flexible and if not ruthless at least determined in his approach to competition for places. Lookman for sure has shown in his all to brief appearances that he has that change of pace, ability and skill to improve on Walcott. Add the determined Calvert LLewin (spelling) into the equation and we will see what happens against Brighton.

{Ed025's Note - your right BCT we will see how marco deals with the situation and what the pecking order is, as much as i like lookman i still think he is behind bernard and richarlison for that right wing spot and im unsure how he would fare in the right, richie has tried his best at CF but a blind man could see thats not his bag mate so i think we have to play either DCL or tosun, at least until january and hope that the club can get a quality front man in..

12.) 30 Oct 2018 16:40:29
Put in a £60m bid Lukaku 😜.

{Ed025's Note - i think we have moved on from him STB..



07 Oct 2018 22:35:08
Everyone's getting excited with 2 wins in a row. we should be winning games like Leicester away against 11 men not 10.this was lucky. Bernard was Ok and the 2nd goal was hit and hope but worked out!
We are doomed. the manager needs to go and we need a complete overhaul from top to bottom!
Thought Mina was good today though.


1.) 08 Oct 2018 02:17:44
Whatever you say Mr Happy.

2.) 08 Oct 2018 02:57:51
Hahahahaha hit and hope hahahaha
Seriously . you are on a wind up here mate. Hahaha hit and Hope? It went in the corner he wanted it to go in.
Don't even get me started about the Bernard shout.
You need a holiday brother.

3.) 08 Oct 2018 03:13:47
Good try Tricky Trev but I think Mina was the giveaway.

5.) 08 Oct 2018 05:55:33
you nearly had me Trevor u nearly had me.

6.) 08 Oct 2018 08:31:53
I agree Tricky. We should bring back Williams from Stoke. We desperately need him and Martina too to strengthen our back line.



04 Oct 2018 14:56:35
Whatever happened to manager's working their way up to top jobs? . these days if your foreign or been a half decent footballer you get a crack at the big time.
Silva is a typical example of how we have had to move with the ever increasing demand for instant success. he has done nothing, he has won nothing yet we spent a fortune tapping him up and giving him a contract with millions on transfer fees and in all honesty he is No better than the previous 3 managers.
Wrong appointment and wrong approach.
He will not succeed and will be gone by middle of next season (with many millions) . we are forever going back to the drawing board and ironically find ourselves In the exact same situation as Man Utd who created this by tapping up Moyes.
I really don't know what the answer is but I can assure you it ain't what we have now.


1.) 04 Oct 2018 17:19:24
I have been one of EFC's biggest critics in recent years Tricky. Post Moyes I thought we signed some quite dreadful players under both Martinez and Koeman. I was branded as a "negative" and depressed! I constantly commented about some very poor (in my opinion) signings and repeated many times that I thought both Lukaku and Barkley had saved both managers from the sack many times. We were particularly poor at signing quality forward/ midfielders. I could write a list of many of the average/ poor players that would fill a whole sheet. But I can see that we are now starting to sign some half decent players. I can also see some kids coming through. Our stats show that we are attacking much more and playing more football of quality. eg I think we had 16 attempts in one of our last games. Compare that with last season and when we went 4 games without registering a single shot on target. I agree with you that we were very poor as a club last 6 seasons. But if we can get the players fit who signed recently and have a run of a few games with the same players, then maybe sign another couple next window without losing any of our current lot. who knows what we can achieve? As for the manager, he is just part of a bigger picture and I guess all members of staff in football clubs are overpaid these days. But look at the positives mate. It is 10000's % better than the tripe served up at the beginning of last season. before we signed Tosun, Walcott, Richarlison, Bernard and a couple of defenders too.

2.) 04 Oct 2018 20:04:33
6 games and you're writing Silva off. The football is 100% better all round than the last 6 seasons. I enjoy watching the games.

{Ed025's Note - me too mowfee mate..

3.) 04 Oct 2018 20:48:33
It all depends on what you are expecting us to be achieving TrickyTrev?
After 7 games are you expecting us to be pushing top 4?
Steam rollering everyone when we are still building a style and the players are still learning how to play as a squad.

If you don't know what the answer is then at least give this manager a season to show us we are progressing before shooting him down.

I am enjoying the way we are playing most of the time, last season I couldn't even watch the games. I personally feel we are just 1 or 2 players away from really clicking as a team. We may already have those players (gomes, mccarthy, mina, bernard) or we might have to go and buy a couple more but we are infinitely better than we have been for the last 3 or 4 seasons.

4.) 04 Oct 2018 21:05:49
With you there Mowfee mate 110%, short memories for some posters me thinks, good post.

5.) 04 Oct 2018 22:30:00
Great post Tricky Trev, so many on here just cannot or do not want to see the truth sadly.

6.) 05 Oct 2018 04:30:25
I'd much rather have Rose-Tinted glasses on than the Manure-Tinted ones Tricky Trev7 and the band of doom merchants appear to be wearing. Maybe it will transpire that you lot are right and Silva will be an abject failure and do nothing but drag our beloved club down, who knows? From what I have seen so far I doubt it personally. When the guy has only been here five minutes you have to at least give him a chance surely? You never know, he may surprise you.

7.) 05 Oct 2018 05:59:28
The problem is there is no cast iron guaranteed way to pick a successful manager. Guardiola had only managed Barcelona's second stream before he took over there, Ranieri hadn't won anything until Leicester, ex international players are a mixed bag Wilkins, Strachan etc offset by Hoddle, Deschamps and dare I say it, a certain Mr Kendall. Lesser known players very mixed results, a lot of them one season wonders who slide downhill just as quickly.

The answer - I haven't a clue and don't envy the chairmen / boards who have to decide. I do know that whoever they decide on we have to get behind them. I know I am saying this a bit tongue in cheek because of my lack of support of Allardyce but when he joined I tried to understand the need and certainly hoped he would be good for us. Unfortunately he, very quickly, drained my love of football and served up some of the worse football I have seen from us, and I'm in my sixties

So, I might indeed be being 2 faced when I complain about the Silva detractors but I would say the football is miles better, the strengthening of the squad by him and Brandt is 'encouraging' and I have my love of football back and that's after only 6 league games. It might not work out, nothings certain in this world, but we are so much better than last year. Give him a chance. I still think we will be 8th or above with real enthusiasm/ hopes for next season

Enjoy the ride with me and the other rose tints or stay depressed It's your choice.

8.) 05 Oct 2018 17:22:53
A win tomorrow and Silva will be the best manager we could have got. A loss and the Big Sam lovers will be wanting him out. How many times will we have to change a manager until all are happy? Just go with the flow and see where we are at xmas.

Eds sound like bitter blues and should respect the talent Barkley has. bit childish to rubbish him just because he's no longer with us. yes frustrated with his exit but still a talent.


{Ed025's Note - your wrong trev i have always been consistent where ross is concerned, bags of talent but has never grown up and has made some terrible life choices imo mate, as a wavertree lad myself i was desperate for him to do well, this is not sour grapes its an indictment of how fame and fortune have blighted his career and if he turns it around then no one will be happier than me, this is of course just my opinion and you are entitled to yours..
