I respect his work overall but I think he's off with that prediction.

We have the benefit of a relatively settled side (ten returning players plus Richarlison), with the potential to add more creativity (Bernard for a midfielder) and more defensive quality and an extra set piece threat (Mina for Holgate/Keane) with a couple of small changes.

Fulham have only a handful of returning starters -- Cairney, Sessengnon, Mitrovic, and sometimes Christie or Kamara. That means they need a lot of new faces to perform right away. Jokanovic might eventually mold them into an effective unit but I think they're going to drop a lot of points while they find the right mix.

I'm not sure who else is going to emerge out of the mid-table pack but for right now, I'd argue that Leicester is a stronger challenger for 7th than Fulham.

I agree, question marks over Puel tho?

Think ted is discounting Bernard due to Ukraine, discounting Everton because most of our signings aren’t stats-bod-approved e.g digne, zouma, Tosun, Walcott, Sigurdsson and finally overweighting the stats-bod approved players at Fulham - mitro, sessegnon and serri.

Does make me doubt my confidence a little bit as there’s not a lot of people out there shouting about us which is understandable. Hoping Mina and Bernard can shock a few and Silva has more to him than we’ve seen at Watford and Hull.
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.

Went with a 442 (ish) again with 2 sitting midfielders. Schneiderlin/Davies being the deepest man at times with the two CBs splitting wide.

Sigurdson is benefiting from being played in this position too, I think this is where he plays for Iceland. Loved his change of feet to draw the foul for the free-kick leading to the first goal.

Not too worried about Tosun not scoring yet, he’s a good foil for Richarlison and Walcott.

I'll be more worried about Tosun if he hasn't bagged 2 or 3 by the 7th game, we've got such a good run of fixtures that if he can't score against those teams it'll be a huge red flag.

On Kenny he should have been loaned out and maybe will be if we can get another younger RB cover for next season, it's not like with strikers and midfielders where if you're winning 2-0 you can bring them on, you never really want to make an RB sub unless there is an injury.

The loan to Blackpool did Coleman a world of good and putting on some weight and a full season at a decent club could make him step up a level.

I wouldnt worry about Tosuns output at the moment. He seems to be taking a backseat role in our strike force to allow Walcott and Richarlison to flourish.
As the team gets more comfortable with all their roles i imagine he will start taking more risks up top rather than just holding the ball up well, as he has been for the opening 2 games.

I plagiarised one of the practice routines Silva has been doing on one of the youtube videos for the Under 11's I coach it may not have been 100% accurate but very close, they loved it as I did. I could do with a few more from him.

We made a few semi chances (including walcott’s disallowed goal) from driven cutbacks at the byline at the weekend.

Imo Tosun and Gylfi will get on the end of plenty of these. Statistically speaking one of the best ways to produce high quality chances.

Did you see the Simeone one about clearing second balls?

Defender has to control a lofted pass and then gets rushed by two players and clear it before they are on him.

I’m not a coach at all but I love watching coaching drills. There’s a few good accounts on twitter that post good possession based attacking and small side coaching drills.

Sounds a decent one that  :thumbsup:, any that are easy to understand but keep them engaged is all good, otherwise after 30 seconds all they can talk about is Fortnite.

I do subscribe to a few on Twitter, I usually try a new one each week sometimes adapting them and try them out sometimes they work sometimes they look at me like I am stupid.

I am going to keep out a eye out for these Everton training videos, loving the insights we are now getting from the club

This is a nice little summary of what Silva has changed since arriving in June. :)

We can all see Sigurdsson has played well, but i didn't realise he had created the most chances in the league in the first two games. Great signs. I'm still confident that we'll beat Bournemouth.

We're not accounting for the easy chances, and for that matter, the decent half chances we've created. It will only take one or two of those chances to start going in, that will give us more breathing space when the defence gets a bit too generous. Things are looking at their best since Moshiri came in. One thing we should be grateful to Moshiri for, is he's doing what he said he would do, and he won't take second best as good enough. :)

Tom Davies running the show deep in the second half.

Watch our pressing when we lose the ball, and the runs in behind.

We actually look quite good here.

It's a big help to have players who make decisions quickly.

That's why I think we should be patient with the likes of Davies, Dowell, and Calvert-Lewin. Their awareness and speed of thought is better than a lot of senior pros we've had over the past five years.

We could end up with some terrific players if we're willing to persist with them through the occasional lapses in execution.

This.

It’s difficult to see what kind of player Davies would turn out to be, he has talent but it’s hard to put a label on him. I thought he was really good as the deep DM in possession, maybe this is what he’ll be eventually.
