I feel for the Everton fans they had an optimistic Summer albeit they failed to recruit in a couple of crucial areas and Evertonian’s have had all their dreams crushed.
Everton are in a really tough place currently and Unsworth whose heart and soul are in the club isn’t the managerial answer either short or medium term.
I think Everton will turn things around they still have most if not all of the Lukaku money to spend and if they get their managerial appointment right they should be more than OK.
I think Everton should go all out for Silva he clearly wants to go there and he is the best of all of the potential Everton targets mentioned.
Everton have been in the top division consistently for more years than all of the top clubs bar Arsenal hopefully Everton can maintain that record but it starts with getting the right Manager in and quickly.26th November 2017 at 11:15 pm #7949

Why should ‘hopefully Everton maintain that record’, 999? If they are one of the 3 worst teams in the league, they deserve to go. I wouldn’t feel sorry for them any more than Palace, Stoke or Swansea.27th November 2017 at 12:30 am #7955
Hightown, I don’t wish Ill on any club mate and Everton are an historic club who have been in the top division since the 30’s and personally I would like to see them stay there because of that even though they stuffed us up in the created market not once but twice.?
But you’re right if they go down they will deserve to go down. I think they will probably be ok though. We’ll see. Cheers 999
ps: Worryingly Everton will appoint a new Manager shortly and there may well be a bit of new Manager bounce just in time for Chelsea playing them on the 23/12 and Liverpool playing them on the 10/12 too. Let’s hope we’ve both got enough to successfully come through those games and any potential new Manager bounce.27th November 2017 at 8:21 am #7965
Hightown, good point.
To be fair, I was only having a laugh given they are our Merseyside rivals. But on the pitch, they have been awful – look at Ashley Williams for instance.
Steve Claridge made almost the same point during yesterday’s commentary on 5 live. In my view, there’s teams that don’t deserve to be in the top flight or their time is up. I’m not saying Everton is one of them, but on the flip side of this coin, Huddersfield have been a breath of fresh air, so maybe next summer, we’ll see more new blood from the Championship come in and mix it up with the big boys making the PL even more exciting.27th November 2017 at 8:48 am #7971

If you ain’t good enough, that’s what happens… pure and simple. It would be a shame, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. No club should expect “favors” due to history…27th November 2017 at 8:52 am #7974
100% agree with all of that banjo.28th November 2017 at 8:13 am #8012
According to latest reports Everton look set to appoint Big Sam? Who imo will probably dig them out of their current hole but I’m not sure BS is the man to take Everton to where they are looking to go.
BS wouldn’t have been my choice were I an Evertonian but needs must and Everton need to escape the spectre of relegation first and foremost.
In the short term though potentially bad news for both Liverpool and Chelsea who play Everton on the 10/12 and 23/12 respectively both hoping to avoid any new Manager bounce.

Everton will avoid relegation with Alerdyce as manager as sure as eggs are eggs. It’s the club’s arround them that should be concerned. Then next summer they should perhaps try and get a manager who plays more progressive football.
