I’ll look back at this guy with fond memories. I’ll remember him for making some of the worst subs I’ve ever seen. I’ll also think “remember how we never came back from a goal down over 18 months!”

then I’ll think of how many goals we concede from set plays and wonder how he kept his job for so long....

We lose against Leicester and he's gone. Simple as that. Whatever happens we are delaying the inevitable. The lad is pure crap of a manager. Even if we win the next 5 games with him still in charge, that won't change my opinion. His understanding of the game is way too basic for a manager in the toughest league.

Many fans are asking for a man manager, but when you read players comments, tabloid reports, and fellow senior people in the football industry, try ye are all saying that Silva is a man manager and that’s his greatest strength. He seems well regarded in that sense.

Maybe it’s the coaching staff that needs a overhaul. Positioning seems non existent at times. Attacking play is always non existent. Surely the is where coaching NG staff need to be held accountable as well.

It's in Silvas own hands now. Tough run of fixtures. Show us what you've got. It's never too late to win footy fans over, as much as we like to deny it, we are as fickle as they come.

The table doesn't lie. So as much as it doesn't look pretty, we are as far from the relegation zone as we are from the too 6 - weird season so far with a few teams wobbling below expectation.

Get battered by Leicester, it's over. Do well, you buy time. Do well against the Shite, you buy more time.

Over to you Marco!

It's a good point. We've been struggling up top for a few seasons, with Big Dunc surely covering that area in coaching. He seems to get a stay of execution each time?

That may well be true so it’s up to the manager to change that, not just put up with it. 
The reality is he’s the manager there his coaching staff whether they were here before him or not, he has had full control over the coaches to hire and fire. 
He’s the Captain of this ship and if it’s sinking like all good Captain’s he has to go down with it, and not blame the crew.

Ahh didn’t realise he hires and fires the coaching staff as well. Thought the DOF would do that like in other teams. 
 

But the point still stands, we need to look at the whole set-up and not just the manager, as the bigger problems may lie elsewhere. This is where I’m expecting Brands to step up and earn his wage.

Maybe Duncan doesn’t just coach the forwards. Yes he was a forward as a player, but he’s been learning to coach and won’t just be sticking to one area. 

Of course. But I doubt a player who's played as forward all his life will be the main Defensive coach. Or Goalkeeper coach. Pretty sure his main area will be the strikers. Who would you have training an Electrician? A time served Electrician or a Plumber?

Pretty sure DCL gave an interview a couple of years ago regarding Dunc and his forward coaching.

It's a small thing at the end of the day, but I'm unsure of his credentials in stepping in as Manager.

The coaching staff bar Dunc have been changed regularly over the last few seasons. I don't think it will make a difference.

I think that's a bit harsh. Lukaku improved loads during his time here, DCL has come through the ranks and become a Premier League striker. Obviously we don't know how hands on he has been with them both, but on the face of it he has done alright with those two.

Whilst its clear we don't have an elite striker, I would say the problems lie a lot further back that the striker.

I don’t think we have coaches who are just attacking or defensive coaches. They will all have things they are better at than others, but I’d be surprised if they were that specific all day every day other than the goalkeeping coach as that’s massively specific. 
 

By logic someone who can coach a forward can also coach a defender how to counter.

Managers do that always have, haven’t you heard it said the manager brings in his coaching staff, or the manager and his coaching staff get sacked, some managers might go to a club and retain some of the coaching staff left by the outgoing manager, but that is generally their choice, Brands didn’t appoint Boa Morte Silva did.

When reading about DOFs, they are managers, and manage the everything to do with the club, while the “Football manager” usually looks after the coaching of the football team. 
 

Really I’m using the City model as an example, but don’t know if this is the usual, or the exception. At Everton it could be a totally different system than anyone has ever heard of haha.

I think the manager would select the coaching staff but the DoF would sort the contracts out.

No I haven’t heard that. I have heard the opposite to be fair. I have read that the manager sorts the team out, while the DOF  manages everything to do with football, the staff, transfer targets, PR, everything else.

But I defer to your knowledge in this one. Like I say, I’m going off the City model as I read a lot into that one to find out what a DOF is. Doesn’t mean we follow the same model.

Yes could be this. Or even the manager saying what model he wants, and the DOF finding staff that suits that model, like transfer targets.

But again... we are Everton, it could be anything 😉

No it’s not mate. Some DOFs manage the staff from a profile given to them by the manager. Managers have even came out and said themselves. 

No disrespect, but I trust thier words before yours 😉

Looked stunned at the end there. Almost like 'What the fuck do I have to do?!'

The coin just ain't dropping in his favour when he most needs it to. I actually feel for him a bit, we've had so many bad luck moments this season, from VAR to marginals to injuries. But it's a results game and he has to pick himself up and battle on like he's never battled before if he wants to keep this job. Lose this, and it's a long road back to the top for him.

What do you do for the best. He’s going to look like a shitting dog on the touchline on Wednesday or so you think Bill is hoping for a “Kevin Brock” moment that saves him? I would expect news tonight or in the morning that he is gone and joe Royle and Unsworth will be in for the derby.

If he goes tomorrow he at least went down fighting, and the players trying for him for once. 
Although having said that I think Davies has been struck off his Christmas card list 😀

He won't go tomorrow we played average at best against an in form mid table team which means he's brought him self another season or two.

We can blame injuries, VAR, or whatever else but his game management is so poor. Every match at the end, usually when in the balance, he likes to turn it into a basketball game, and we lose every time. There's just no composure. We need someone to put their foot on the ball and take the sting out of it. Instead, we are lumping balls to our outlets trying to hit them on the counter. It's just back and forth. It's not the players, it's his instructions and how we play every single week. It's no coincidence, or luck that we concede and lose games late on so often.

He is out of his depth as a premier league manager. The best managers get the luck and the worst managers don't seem to get any. It's how it works and Marco Silva already has a relegation on his resume. I do believe that in the end, Hull were a tad unlucky to go down that year after a great revival. He just has that knack and we need him out asap.

Nice bloke though....

Look at what Rodgers did during the game though went to a back three and played childwell as one of them, brought inacheo on alongside vardy. Really good management. 

Silva’s tactics were spot on today , if not for two brain farts from Davies we would have walked away with all 3 points, all be it the injuries probably played a part in him changing the formation

It's a results orientated business. That's a fact. He's the polar opposite to Sam Allardyce. Sam is hated but gets results. He knows how to organise teams and manages games well, sees games out, seemingly with a worse squad than what Silva has right now. (I'm not advocating for BFS here, just making a point!)

Silva is actually well liked as a bloke and he tries to play attacking football but it's far too kamikaze and his in game management is the worst Ive ever seen. Zero organisational skills which is mirrored in his results. His win percentage in the Premier League is woeful and it is getting worse....Does anyone think he would have had Watford relegated if he would have continued?

Probably, and that is a huge cause for concern. This guy manages teams in a relegation fight and has lost one already. The next club got rid before they were sucked in. Please don't let us make that fateful mistake......

I would say that the position were in, is pretty much where we have ended the last few seasons. We’re a team playing with the form of a team that will finish around 8th position.

Are we even half way through yet?

Cue the we’re a spot above relegation... just so you know, I know that. But I will still bet any of you that we won’t be there at the end of the season... and I mean we will be at minimum 5 places above.  The reason is that I can simply look at the table and see that two wins changes the whole look of the league table.

Yesterday still feels like a horrible kick in the teeth, I feel sorry for Silva and for the team because we did show real fight and got nothing for it. But I still have to go back to Norwich - surely anything like the application we showed yesterday and we'd have beaten them. That to me was a turning point - win that and we could take a couple of plucky-but-unlucky performances against the three teams who are absolutely flying were playing this week. We keep putting in God awful displays at the wrong time, and that will get you into a lot of trouble in the PL. I just don't see Silva injecting the change of momentum we need.

All in all its not been good enough from silva, but I do have a lot of sympathy towards him. The amount of injuries we have had is unreal and the fact the board didn't make enough of an effort to sign a Zouma replacement isn't good enough and they need to take some responsibility. I don't know how much Silva was involved with bringing kean to the club but again recruitment up front wasn't good enough either, we needed a more experienced striker who can lead the line, not another prospect.

Voice quite croaky in his post match interview. He knows he's on the ropes. I think he knows he's a goner and is genuinely upset about the prospect of losing his job. He'll not get another go in the Premiership without winning something pretty decent abroad first.

It's so frustrating. Really thought he'd sussed it in the last third of last season.

Shame but you can't lose 9 of the first 15 games, with the players at hand, albeit with some real bad luck, and expect to be given more chances - not when you've gone back to bad habits we were seeing over 12 months ago.

Think he simply wasn't able to cope with the loss of Zouma and Gana.  Our good run at the end of last season relied on those and we don't have a like for like replacement for either.  That meant we needed to change the playing style, but instead we kept trying to play the same but without those key personnel it blew up in his face.

We got Gbamin and Delph both of which have been injured- out his control. Zouma and Mina would have been a good partnership, he’s tried Holgate, 3/5 at the back because of how poor Keane is but there’s not much else he can do. Also add in Coleman has been bang average.

I think he's dreading this job already. Probably he wants to be fired as much as we do. Feel sorry for him, because he seems genuinely a good guy, but things just didn't worked out. I wish him luck and a lot of success with his next club.

Still think he needs a couple of games. By all accounts we got screwed by VAR again and at least we got goal. A new manager inheriting a demoralised squad is either a mercenary or saviour, but it’s an utter gamble.
