Why do you keep writing "we"?
Surely it should be "he"?
Or were you there with him?

The point is, had Man Utd said yes, we would have him now, that was the best trick he had up his sleeve at that time. Does that not worry you just a little bit?

We as in "Everton" like where you said above "we would have him now". ;)

If they'd said yes we'd (Everton) have had him on loan now as cover but they wanted a permanent deal which we (Everton) didn't want so walked away. It was no where near an "almost" deal.

talkSPORT had a bit on us and Silva earlier, one blue suggested Eddie Howe cos he would sort our defence out, Eddie Howe ffs! Then they had the fat prick  on saying the fans got him sacked last year and the same will happen to Silva

Can't remember the exact number bit didn't Bournemouth concede three or more goals in about 8-10 games last season?

Can't bring myself to read the echo article but the headline is unfinished business.

He's not coming back, just read the article instead of stressing about it.

Okay. I’ll agree with that. A couple calls or a couple breaks and we’re sitting on say ~15 points? Instead of 11. The pressure wouldn’t be as intense.

It's more than just points though. We showed against West Ham that we can play well and with a decent intensity, the Brighton game we didn't play great but if that VAR goes our way there's a good chance we win that, our first come from behind win under Silva, then we beat Watford in the cup. Suddenly we're three wins on the bounce with one goal conceded and a monkey off our back, we go in to yesterday's game with a totally different mentality and confidence. We lost a goal yesterday to a poor individual mistake and got done by VAR again, while trying to get back into a match having watched a team mate sustain a horror injury. We can be critical of Silva and rightly so but he's made a lot of the changes people wanted but things outside of his control in the last two league games have prevented us building any momentum and confidence.
