Pretty much expected,  but it is going to be massively skewed by the form and style while the team were getting used to Silva's demands. Is there one that covers the last 3rd of the season? That's probably what we should expect next season.

Think form and style while they adapt is his job too to be fair. I understand there would be speed bumps but I expect him to manage it and better than he did.

Not comparative like this I'm afraid, I guess this is more 'how have we been this season' than like a temperature check of shorter term form, but I do agree like we'd come out better definitely.

I don't think end of season reflects what we should expect unfortunately, particularly results wise, but you'd assume we've ended up closer to what Silva wants.

Good insight on his tactics in this interview translated from Portuguese. Imagine getting this insight in English media, especially of Everton.

He also says in the next tweet...

''Silva also confirmed the club is trying to sign Zouma and André Gomes on permanent deals. He seems to really like Gomes' commitment in practice, ''tactical understanding'' and ability to play different midfield roles. To each their own, I suppose''

Yeah saw that.

Good news about Zouma.

This guy tiago has a bit of a long standing anti Gomes thing.

Sounds familiar ;)

I like Gomes!

His assist was great. His goal was even better.

Brilliant, your Richarlison had all the subtlety of a sledge-hammer while this one is delivered with underhand grace. A tactical masterclass!

Haha I actually love Richarlison, best business the club has done in some time.

I don't feel the need to sugar coat anything with our players though, if they need to improve somewhere they need to improve somewhere. My opinion still just my opinion too, would rather be proven wrong than be miserable but right!

To be fair silva seems to have clearly identified flaws and aimed to address them, all our summer  signings are totally different from what we already have. I agree he needs to be getting more out of what we have but he seems to have tightened up the defence compared to last year for a start and I'm hoping the new players will phase out the likes of Schneiderlin and give Sigurddsson a real threat to his place, even Coleman might find he is benched if he doesn't improve Silva has shown he can make those sorts of decisions on occasion.

One thing I don't like is that he talks alot about what is wrong but then doesn't actually do anything about it?

Moves personel around but keeps the 4231 with Gylfi in the 10. Keeps the plodding 2 in midfield.

I think describing at a result by result thing is unfair tbh.

Think its a new tweak seems to have come about maybe end of villa game / midweek?

Sigurdsson is pulling deeper or wider rather than standing on the edge of the box.

Not sure what's allowing him to do it structurally or if he's just doing it, but it worked well today I think.

I guess you can have any old system if you have some sorta superhuman tackle machine racking up league-best level tackles, interceptions and recoveries.

Think Aston Villa fans would disagree with that.

Exception to every rule etc

Think if we win that the discussion today is very different but that's the prem I suppose.

Not looking forward to the club going into transition again and us rolling the dice again, and he will probably do enough this year to get 8th, maybe maybe 7th if he does well, and that won't be enough to cost him the job but, it's just frustrating isn't it.

Same old, same old. Quite embarrassing I think really, the amount we spend and these players we put together and the way we see the club from the inside and yet we continuously shoot ourselves in the foot like that yesterday.

Another massive opportunity missed given the start of the season fixtures we've had - that Christmas period is going to be a bit of rocky road for him I think.

He’s not going anywhere unless we are really in the ditch after Christmas. And honestly, even though I don’t like him, I don’t think we should let him go. We need to stop firing all these coaches after 1-2 seasons. I don’t know how payouts work but aren’t we still paying koeman and allardyce?? And the roll over with players is horrendous.

Our Biggest problem is is we gotta stop hiring these melons.

Yeah agree I think. Change this year and we just have another wobbly transition season, plus you'd likely lose Richarlisons head and we could do with a decent year out of him tbh.

Just try and get through the disappointing ones like yesterday and I think we'll do about enough for 8th, so like I say unless christmas is a real rocky road he probably won't lose his job.

Would I rather we just made a good informed decision first time round sure but we are where we are and we can still have a fun season we just need adjust those expectations again.
