A bit worried about the red card trend continuing.From what I remember it’s a theme during Silva’s time at Watford.
I think he’s just guilty of being a little naive so far. He’s tried to play the way he’d like to (and the way Evertonians like to see us play) and he’s been caught out trying to do it mainly with players who can’t deliver it. I think he needs to play the cards he’s been dealt a little more and wait until he gets a full set before going ahead with what I presume is his preferred plan.
He’s going 4-3-3 eventually, isn’t he. Surely?Really don’t know how to solve the Sigurdsson situation. Clearly a very, very good player who is scoring goals...but we have to accommodate him up top where he puts in about 20-25 passes a game. He’s a passenger for too much of the play, while opposition sides stroll through the middle of the pitch.Gomes Gana Davies worth a go I think, if we’re really never going to see Sigurdsson in CM which it doesn’t look like we will.
If we can buy a CM in jan that we actually want then sound we deffo should but until then he’s our next best CM I suppose?Also he wasn’t even that bad yesterday was he? I mean no worse than anyone else.
I think we need to look at ourselves in some of this. Is it a coincidence that managers come to us with a good reputation, fuck up, get sacked then do well somewhere else? Appreciate its a 2 way street, but we are terrible supporters and Goodison must be a terrible place to playSent from my CLT-L09 using NSNO Everton Forums mobile app
But you want the players to work there socks off when things is going right... clearly doesn't apply to our fans or
But we need to give something back, it was like a morgue again today, absolutely nothing. The fans have just as big of a part to play as the players yet our heads go down faster than any other team in the league. I know its not great, but you see the impact a supportive set of fans have on the team at most other matches
Whilst I agree we’ve not been great the time to judge really starts now. He’s justifiably had a free pass for the first 6 months but realistically now is when we should start seeing some consistency of performance. The standard of player he’s working with is far better than last season (with this month probably helping to refine the squad further) so he should now have an idea of how to get the best out of them.Perfectly reasonable to start assessing a lot closer from now on. You’d especially want to see improvement on the 1/3 of all goals conceded from set pieces as a minimum.
As long as we can have flange as well
I wasn’t calling for his head but neither was I 100% convinced he was the right man. But over the past few months I’m starting to think (hope) this is the guy we need
You don't mind losing as long as the team have tried and had a go and showed some effort and committment, if the signs are there tomorrow for us to build on I can live with that, what I don't want to see is a limp performance producing a defeatist display and then a pathetic showing against Burnley. Its time to show some improvement.
The biggest problem we have had this season is that our finishing has been, to put it politely, utter tripe.In nearly every game this season, we have created a lot of chances, and not finished them off, with Richy primarily to blame.EDIT - I have just looked at some stats:- DCL is 5th in the PL for big chances missed- Richy is 14th in PL for number of shots- Everton are 6th in PL for big chances missedAlso as an aside, it is worth noting that we use our left hand side less than any other PL team, and less shots come from this side than any other side. Most of our play comes down the right hand side, where we are 2nd in the PL for amount of play down the right.It has been a bad start, but it really could be worse.
