100% with you on this.
There seem to be a lot of people claiming the football under Silva has been terrible, but at times last season our high intensive pressing and attacking football was really exciting.

I'm still hopeful, but I think a lot had made their mind up even before the season started.

What a load of rubbish. After the way we finished the season and the summer of signings pretty much all the fans were bang up for it and willing to give Silva a good go at making it a success.

Even the sceptics thought he'd got over his early season difficulties, when the football was terrible you're right, and was now ready to kick on with a more fluid approach.

Some people just love to see an agenda even when it isn't there.

There were loads of "if he doesn't get x amount of points from the first 6 games, he should be sacked"

And read the match day threads to see how quickly some turned.

Really? Don't remember reading stuff like that, but happy to be proved wrong if you can show us.

The Silva out thread was bumped after our first defeat of the season.

Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Yep. We were great up until December last year. Approached the derby in 6th and played the best we've played there for years.

It's not been all bad. There's been some very good things under Silva and I'm baffled by where we are in the league.

At the time I remember reading from the lad who did it that is was wrongly bumped and that it should have actually been the Silva Playbook one, as what was being discussed was the style of play not the fact he should be binned. I think that continued and it was even locked as it was a ludicrous time to use that thread.

Of course when we continued, and continue, to get pumped by shite sides then the bigger question comes into play.

Hmmmm not how I recall it myself, but it's irrelevant.

The last line is completely untrue. Pretty much our entire fan base were hopeful of a great season. Don’t think anyone thought we’d be in this position or silvas job would be under threat. No one wanted shut of him after the way we finished last season

You're right it is irrelevant. You'll always get the outliers in every group, the vast majority want what's best for Everton which is a successful manager.

People turned quickly because the reality was that we hadn’t turned a corner just hit form at the end of last season. The reality was his record had been poor barring that and was continuing to be poor. Didn’t see anyone suggest he’d be sacked before the season start. I don’t think anyone thought we wouldn’t get plenty of points from our opening fixtures

I wasnt pointing a finger at you. I think you've been massively supportive and positive since the start of the season.

Didn’t think you were pointing the finger at anyone in particular. It really isn’t true regardless though. We were all very hopeful. There was no talk of him getting sacked if he didn’t achieve x because we all thought we’d do well

Don't think this game has any indication of him staying or going really.

Watford really are that shite.

I thought if anything it was disappointing how we looked vs that shower!

Like the look of Quina though. Would rather him than Doucoure if we must in the summer.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
