Releasing? or selling. They must have a sell on value at least?
The right appointment, a clear pre season, be interesting to see what he can do over the next few years. The right infrastructure with the right investment and Everton should claw there way back up to a respectable level
Fell nicely into place for Everton. Even taking into the account the money they paid Mr. Middtable to stop the rot after Koeman and Unsworth they're still millions up on what they would have spent to take him off Watford last season.
Silva is a decent manager for a club like Everton. They're not a club who will challenge for the top 4 any time soon (or possibly ever when you look at the money now being spent by the big guns) but there is a decent chance he'll have them fighting for Europa spots within a season or two.
Without going over old ground in relation to Sam I do not understand the seeming obsession PL clubs have for this guy. Probably worth a mention in the merry go round thread but I don't see Silva lasting the season - Everton should've gone out and got a legit manager when they harshly dispensed of Sam otherwise what's the point, this Silva ain't shit.
I think Silva is a manager the Bitterz have needed for a while ,he plays expansive football and affords the more inventive players the room to play the expressive football fans have been crying out for. Sadly I suspect he will do well this season ,the derbies will be a welcome change in not having a collective of big yard dogs kicking lumps out of our attack.
With Rooney and all his palava moving on, this will give Sigurdsson his chance to show what he could do in an Everton shirt and they'll be better for it. There's a better balance to them this season but I still don't see that side breaking into the top six.
