Crisis? What Crisis?

Marco Silva reckons Everton are treated harshly and routinely singled out.

In a piece with The Guardian, Marco Silva is quoted as saying: “In my opinion it is so easy to create a crisis inside Everton football club”

Marco Silva then went on to compare Everton’s point tally with the rest of the league, and although he was coy on why he believed his club was held under greater scrutiny than others, he did hint at Farhad Moshiri‘s involvement.

“I know why but it is not my job to talk about that. I look at the table now and you have first position and then the second-placed team with 10 points. After that there’s a big group with eight points and a big group with seven points. Some of those teams on eight points prepared the season to be champion and I hear they are doing a fantastic season.

“Everton has seven points and it’s: ‘Big crisis, everything is bad inside.’ It is up to me as the manager to block that out”

On being pressed whether Farhads Moshiri’s backing was a contributing factor behind unfair scrutiny, Marco Silva added: “Yes, but let me know if the other clubs don’t have owners as well and don’t spend big money. I know the reason but it is not for me to say it.

“Was I happy with the last game? 100% no. We lost an opportunity to make a big statement at Bournemouth.

“It is up to us to block this out. In our dressing room and inside our club we have to close off from this.

“We give 100% commitment to our shirt, to our club and we are demanding of ourselves. We know our target and what we are fighting for. We have to show personality and everything else we have to block out like ice men and not give it a chance to come into our dressing room.”

  1. Or Sheffield Wednesday become our oxford united moment and we scrape through then get things together and win silverware.
    For some reason we have to have a deep crisis every season before we actually start playing at our level. At least it’s happened early. We either improve or Silva is gone.
    I must confess, I was nervous when I saw the fixture list with all the newly promoted teams so early. They always play out of their skins for the first few months. They are not easy games and the teams that consistently beat them are fighting for honours.
    We are not in that position!,
  2. And it all falls apart when sheff wed dump us out out

    :Blink: I dare not even think about that. The fume would be enough to mean Dan would have to hire 400 Ukrainian miners to tunnel under the GOT server room to install a heat exchange before it melts through the foundation and pollutes the whole continent. End of days stuff.

  3. It’s all part of the plan to play well underneath our capabilities so then we can blitz the cup competitions taking everyone by surprise.

    At least that is what I tell myself as I rock back and forth in a dark room.

  4. But he didn’t say that did he ? He said it is so easy to create one -and- Moshiri was not the only owner with money .To my mind he did not say there actually was a crisis inside the club.

    Nope he did say it
    Euther way he has a crisis now…. caused by his inept tactics and motivation

  5. There is no crisis but other team’s struggles and the competitiveness of the league aren’t justification enough for our start to the season, given that we had the easiest start of any team.

    That is so aggravating to me. This is our best chance to be passing those sides up and we aren’t taking advantage. United and Chelsea are in transition. Arsenal are an Aubemyang injury away from losing control. No excuses really to be farting around against the likes of Bournemouth and Villa.

  7. Does he think them performances at Villa & Bournemouth would go under the radar ? obviously not a crisis but a issue he is payed to address
    Keep the fans happy and you will keep your job it is that simple
  8. Liverpool doing so well means that fans are demanding more. I live away from Liverpool but I’d imagine being around reds is quite insufferable at the moment.
  9. The money spent under Walsh is being recouped by sales and transferred into the Silva team….still an incomplete process. Moyes and everyone since at Utd has suffered from not being Ferguson. The club has only just realised nobody ever will be, including Jose.
    His day has gone, like Wenger and Fergie they are now history.

    Jose and Wenger have won more pots in recent years than super dupa hipster managers like Pochettino.

    I would snap your hands off for both.

  10. I don’t think we’ve played well once at all yet and losing to very below average squads in Villa and Bournemouth is a cause for concern, If we played well and still lost both of them I’d be fine with that it happens but we look so lost and void of any creativity/enthusiasm.

    Which seem to me a reoccurring problem for some seasons now, void of any creativity/enthusiasm and when its too late it all clicks, which is the concern for me!

  11. Maybe because you’ve spent £200 million in 2 seasons you clown and other teams around you (including Arsenal and Spurs) have spent alot less than that.

    With big money comes big expectations and with big expectations comes bigger media scrutiny.

    This was always the problem appointing a "gamble" low level manager – they cant deal with the high expectations that come with money look at Moyes at Utd when it wasn’t the good times of no pressure under Kenwrong.

    Hurry up and go get Jose before Wolves sack Santo and use Mendes to get him in.

    Dropped the We have we?

  13. Easy to try and move the blame
    As Silva quotes it is inside Everton, so Nothing to do with outside influences

    We played well in patches . But its early days . If we are still as poor in 6 games then maybe time to panic.

  15. Some of the football we played last 10 games last season was a joy to watch.
    Haven’t started well this season yet but as the opening post suggests there are a lot of overreactions too.
    Bar the rs every team has looked ordinary on occasion

  16. Losses are acceptable but the way we performed at Villa and Bournemouth is nothing short of a disgrace, I accept Everton will lose games, I nearly fell asleep watching us against B’mouth we don’t DO ANYTHING with the ball, It’s the same pass to the Digne garbage and let him put a 9.5/10 cross in and no one gets on the end of it.
    I hate it.

  18. We’ve been two wins in a row away from a really good start imo. It’s just unfortunate the one of the games is always away from home lol
  19. Although tbf to him Brands massively failed him not getting a good striker in.

    Haller and Wilson available and we overlooked both last season and both have netted 3 in 6 and 4 in 6 respectively so far this season – whereas we have a 19 year old kid and DCL.

  21. I do think he is right it is the bias toward Liverpool F.C. and then obviously the bias against their city rivals .That and the fact that a lot of the commentators/pundits have played( in the loosest term possible ) for them .Plus the inherent bias toward the city and hey presto job’s a good’un.Not that I am bitter in any way but it was the same when we were successful -we were never the favourite of the press .

  23. Think he may of just increased the so called crisis
    Personally no crisis around points total, more a concern over tactics/fight and will to win.
