I think the sooner people reduce their expectations for this season, forget about winning or achieving anything, and write the year off as one mostly for Silva and Brands to implement longer term plans, the happier we will all be.

Surely nobody expected anything like that?
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Totally agree but is it too much to expect us to compete with Leicester wolves and West Ham for 7th? If we don't even manage that then he needs to have a flying start to next season

I donít even think you can use Allardyce as a yardstick. He was a caretaker manager in all but name. If weíre comparing Silva to anyone it should be Koeman, the last proper manager we had.

Difficult to at this stage due to the differences in quality of opposition at the start of their seasons....

I don't think they are. I don't think anyone is suggesting he shouldn't get a lot of time. Just that it's been quite poor so far

Allardyce had no intention of playing any football in his time here. His mission was to get to the end of the season losing as few games as posssible to take him to his payday.

I prefer to look at his time here as an aberration, a brief stain on the history of the football club.

As long as he doesn't completely lose the plot, he should get two seasons (and obviously more if he does well).

He's not a total dinosaur like Koeman and Allardyce so there's a limit to how much damage he can do given that amount of time.

Gotta say I'm not a fan of Marco giving the captaincy to Davies. I think it sends out the wrong message in that you can become Everton captain without 1. Having achieved anything 2. Not being very good at anything in particular 3. Displaying anything even remotely like the neccessary skills to captain the team.

Think we crossed that bridge with Phil Neville tbh pal

Short term pain leading to longer term gains.

I can live with that with Silva getting it right further down the line.

Moyes had the same in 2003/2004. Following season we finished 4th.

Itís all about the long term plan and the squad already looks younger and better. A poor to average start to the season, but we have gone from looking terrible last season to looking the better team away against Arsenal. Small steps.

Gone from being comfortably better than Huddersfield to being outplayed by an even worse Huddersfield side. Gone from being relatively competent defensively to a Martinez style collapse against Bournemouth

Our results and our performances have been of similar quality this season
