Continuity is key to unearthing Everton’s rough diamonds

Continuity is key to unearthing Everton’s rough diamonds

Too much chopping and changing at Everton recently has been damaging. Under Marco Silva, a more samey approach could prove the perfect antidote Since Farhad Moshiri became Everton’s majority shareholder in February 2016, five men have occupied the Goodison Park hot seat and 57 players have donned the royal blue shirt, all to the cost of somewhere north of £350 million. Such an unprecedented level of investment in the Toffees surely deserves tangible success in return, though Moshiri’s efforts have, as yet, yielded nothing. But, after the maelstrom of the Iranian’s first...

Manager’s comments after Everton dispose of Southampton In his first competitive match at Goodison Park, Marco Silva led Everton to a 2-1 win over Southampton after the Blues put on a resplendent attacking performance in the first half the likes of which we only saw at the pinnacle of Roberto Martinez’s tenure. After the game, Silva was happy with the result. “We deserved the three points and it was a good win for us. We did very well in the first half and in the second half there was a reaction [from Southampton]. In that moment you have to manage the game in a different...

Everton 2-1 Southampton: F-U-N

Everton 2-1 Southampton: F-U-N

For one half, at least, you would have been forgiven for thinking that Barcelona showed up at Goodison Park this afternoon. Everton came out and blitzed Southampton with brilliant goals from Theo Walcott and Richarlison, and despite a second-half wilting and Danny Ings marker, that would be enough for all three points. Talent was never going to be an issue, and it’s now abundantly clear that Everton’s preferred four attackers - Gylfi Sigurdsson, Theo Walcott, Richarlison, Cenk Tosun - are going to be a serious problem for opponents all year long. All four were superb in this match,...

Marco Silva wants to avoid factions forming within Everton

Manager’s comments ahead of Everton’s home opener at Goodison Park Marco Silva and his primarily Portuguese coaching staff communicate in Portuguese when conversing with each other in training. The French-speaking contingent of Morgan Schneiderlin, Idrissa Gueye, Lucas Digne and Kurt Zouma have been gravitating together. Richarlison, Bernard and Yerry Mina barely speak a lick of English. Now the Everton manager wants that all to change. Speaking to the press ahead of the game today at Southampton, Silva wants that to change and he knows it starts with him. “Of course, and that...

Everton vs Southampton: Injury Report | Holgate or Zouma to start?

Who’s in and who’s out for today’s season opener? Everton fans are going to have to wait to see their two newest players from Barcelona as Yerry Mina is carrying a minor foot injury and Andre Gomes still has a muscle ailment. Bernard has only been in training a few days after an injury layoff so he’ll be short on match fitness. Marco Silva is going to have some thinking to do about his starting lineup, beginning with who to replace Phil Jagielka with. Mason Holgate did well in the second half coming on for the red-carded captain. Kurt Zouma on the other hand is slightly more...

Writer Prediction League: Everton v. Southampton

First home match, first win? Predictions are so much more fun when you feel like Everton might actually be successful, right? We were relatively optimistic heading into the Toffees’ season debut against Wolves last week, and things went pretty well considering the absence of several key new players and Phil Jagielka’s first-half red card. Without a doubt, that positive performance weighs in the minds of our writers this week, who seem to foresee even more success for Everton this week. But first, let’s quickly review how we did last week. It was a big week for Brian F., who earned...

The Toffees are back at Goodison Park Marco Silva’s first competitive home game in charge of Everton sees him take on Mark Hughes Southampton. Both sides have one point on the board after opening weekend draws. The Toffees drew 2-2 at newly-promoted Wolves while Southampton were held to a goalless draw by Burnley. Everton will be without Phil Jagielka following his red card last weekend but Richarlison, Bernard, Kurt Zouma and Lucas Digne could all make their home debuts.

A combination of all three? For the first time in aeons Toffees fans are looking forward to an Everton home game. I know I’ve not felt so excited about heading to Goodison Park for years.
