Found this on another Clubís forum. If these stats are right you have to wonder if silva is the right choice
My impression of Silva is good, but I've been taking a look at a few stats and I've become a little more cautious.
Paul Clement and Marco Silva took over their respective clubs after 20 matches with Swansea on 15, Hull on 13 in 16/17. Swansea finished on 41 and survived, Hull went down with 34. A 2 point gap became 7. Now I would say that Swansea had a stronger squad but I'd have a hard time saying that Silva did the better job of the 2.
Swansea again from this season and Carvalhal took over on 13 points from 20, exactly the same as Silva did at Hull. Ended up on 33 instead of Silva's 34. A similar job.
Mazzari = 40 points from 38 = 1.05 points per game
Silva = 26 from 24, 1.08
Gracia = 15 from 14, 1.07
I don't think Everton would be interested in any of Clement, Carvalhal, Mazzari or Gracia. Silva hasn't definitively proved that he's better than any of them are in English football at least so it's more risky than I possibly first thought.
We can say he's better than Mike Phelan though!
