Happy with this. Chance he will be gone within a year or two, as the below Guardian article makes clear, but hopeful that Everton will be fun to watch again in the meantime.

Am a little concerned about how well he will work with a DOF, as apparently some of his dissatisfaction at Watford was the result of his limited influence over transfers.

He has worked as a director of football, so he is not alien to the concept of it. Im sure him and Brands have been talking since December.

Baines would probably disagree with that.

I don't think he was a nice guy, I reckon he'll be the type that on the outside comes across as a decent sort but behind the scenes was a bit of a stubborn cunt who wouldn't listen to anyone's suggestions or feedback and would actually take it as criticism if they did. It's not like there was a line of players coming out and supporting him and saying they'd miss him when he's gone, in fact if rumours were true it was the opposite and he'd lost most of the players.
I get your points there mate but what I was referring to was more in line with his press conferences where he told anyone who would listen how good everyone was and how phenomenal such a player is as well as talking the opposition up with the upmost respect to them, and yes we should respect the top six teams but we shouldn’t fear them, after all we are still a bigger club than most teams in the prem.

This is quite an enthusiastic and positive assessment of Silva from three former players. All his ex-players seem to rate him very highly, which can only be a positive thing. Reading this has made me more relaxed and hopeful about his appointment. We shall see soon enough. :)

That’s a good read and a lot of positives should be taken out of that article, he seems to be a born winner and a leader. Only downfall is his need to move clubs but now that he’s at a big club with money to spend and a progressive business plan in place with seasoned professionals around him I think he’ll be here for quite a while. Here’s hoping anyway. COYB

I like that Silva has a lot more to lose reputationally by failing than either Koeman or Allardyce did; both could fail here and still be looked at for other decent football jobs. For Koeman, his success as Southampton and his personal reputation as a player were enough to make sure he's able to get manager jobs even if he didn't perform here. In Allardyce's sense, the jobs he's apt to take (relegation fodder) would be his this coming season whether or not you view his term here a success or not. No doubt Silva's got skin in the game with this appointment. He fails and his own reputation would take a massive hit.

The other sense is that you felt like both Koeman and Allardyce could be arsed whether or not they took the Everton job; Koeman didn't seem to want it initially and same with Allardyce. Silva wants this.

I’d rather us have a smaller squad with quality 11 than all these average players
Just like them across the park. Hasn't done them any harm really.

Am a little concerned about how well he will work with a DOF, as apparently some of his dissatisfaction at Watford was the result of his limited influence over transfers.

I think that has more to do with Watford and the Pozzo structure, managers there have very limited influence and they end up changing their manager at least once a season anyway.

Silva should have more influence at Everton but he should also be able to work better with Brands - assuming the communication between the two has been solid in the last few weeks.

Do Watford have a DOF? I thought it was just their owner deciding to bring players in from one of his other clubs all the time?
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Can we have Silva on the opening app page now? Sick of seeing that cheesy grin from Koeman.

One of the most impressive performances I've seen was Watford away at Newcastle last season.

They won 3-0 and you'd have thought they were the home side.

I know Newcastle are shit like but I can't remember the last time we went away anywhere and played like that.

That's the sort of thing I'm really hoping he replicates here.

I'd hang off on changing that just yet. Let's see if he's still here at the end of the season.
