I like Silva, but I wouldn't marry him like, he looks the kind that would play away if someone sexier came along.

6 points off safety wasn't it? He had half a season to turn it around and am not saying he was against it with that side but we recently had a manager who did a similar thing.

As for wat ford they started pretty well last season too (or was it the season before?) and still ended up mid to low table.

He may well do well with us but there's nothing to say he will be a success with us.

In fact I would argue Koeman has been more successful than Silva and look how that turned out.

The choice of manager linked with us right now is very underwhelming.

Are you deliberately ignoring his record before the PL?

Can someone tell me how Silva plays his brand of pressure absorbing, quick, counter-attacking football with this squad?

I would imagine initially he would be more pragmatic and work with what he's got. Maybe select a few of the younger, fitter players and then try to utilise the pressing, aggressive qualities of players like Sigurdsson and Klaassen.

Then get a few players in during January.

Why the hell did we not keep Martinez if this is to be our new manager. His teams cannot defend last 2 away games at Chelsea and Everton prove the point and his teams cannot hold on to a lead. Sound familiar?
Need to appoint a steady eddy manager until somebody more appropriate comes along.
Think everyone has got carried away since we beat Watford in a game we should never have won! The same problems we have had all season are still there and the first job is to stop us conceding silly goals and get enough points to stay up. Marco Siva is NOT the right choice to do that!
2 defeats or even a draw and 1 defeat in the 2 away games coming up and we are right back in trouble again and when did we last win away?

Jim White on TalkSport just said Moshiri willing to offer £8.5m to Watford for Silva. JW is essentially a mouth-piece for Moshiri so I believe it.

Usually, when an official approach is made these things only pan out one way. I'd expect Silva to be our new manager by the end of the week.

Agreed. Salary etc. all sorted with Silva, just trying to persuade Watford to let go...thing is, as there is no compensation clause they could ask for something stupid like £20m to warn us off.

Do you mean the record not as good as Koemans? A second division title, a  Portuguese cup and winning the title in the mighty Greek league?

Stirring stuff.

Not to mention the nomadic movement of club to club. He comes to us heís averaging a change of club every season. Doesnít really instill a lot of confidence and stability, does it?

Havenít Watford last their last 3 games in a row? Only Everton would be willing to pay £8.5m for a manager who is arguably a few more bad results from being sacked, anyway.

It has been said often enough that only fans are loyal; most players and managers are not. But if this fella bombs out of Watford after 11 games, what does that say about him?  Imagine what would have been said on here if Koeman had left after 11 games?   I really hope he does not come for that reason apart from all what has been already said. Of course if we are landed with him, and results show little improvement then we will probably see him gone by next May. On the other hand he might be better than we think and might jack us up the table. Given a choice between the two, it is Dyche for me.  Niasse will be pleased though. Which Watford players do you fancy? Cleverly?

If im being honest I wouldnt think 20 million is unreasonable, if Moshiri believes he is the right person to take us forward. We pay 30, 40, 50 million for players yet expect to get the most important person at the club for peanuts. Clearly id rather get him for 4 or 5 million, but this is part of the game ive never really understood.

He always looks like he's just got in from a heavy night at the casino.
