Marco Silva’s Burnley Defeat Reaction

Marco Silva believes his side didn’t deserve to lose against Burnley.

Marco Silva told BBC Merseyside Sport: “The result was really disappointing. I think we deserved more than we achieved.

“First of, we had the better team on the pitch, no doubts about that.

We controlled the game against a tough team to play. We are always the the most dangerous team on the pitch, first half we created more chances than them – a chance for Alexi Iwobi and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, all dangerous moments.

“The second half started the same way, more balanced. The second yellow [Seamus Coleman‘s dismissal] made a big impact. A harsh decision, and of course afterwards it was more difficult for us.

“In the end they were more brave than us with set pieces because we had so many set pieces first half, creating so many dangerous moments and we didn’t score”

  1. After match comments in paper – He is not worried, results will come!

    We are now third from bottom, played 8 and got 7 points. For us to climb not only means winning games but the others above us losing so that we can climb. Can one believe in Silva?

  2. There’s no evidence in his last few jobs that Moyes can get anything out of anyone since he left here.

    He was good for what we needed at the time, gave us a bit of fight and spirit back and you can’t knock him for that.

    He’s yesterday’s man though and the way he left us was disgraceful, he should never be considered for any role at this club again.

    This is it for me. Couldn’t bring myself to go to that West Ham game (last game of season) and join in the ‘send off’. The man was still doing pre match press conferences in his Everton training tops’ when he was already Man Utd bound. Hideous. And I blame Kenwright for that too. Should have put him on gardening leave for rest of season once he agreed to join Man Utd.

  3. I think I’m officially off the Silva train now. I haven’t seen anything of the Burnley game, I was on some 250km mountainbike thing in Holland and only saw the score on my phone at full time whereupon the woods echoed to the sound of "For F***s sake Everton!"

    We play exactly the same gameplan every week regardless of the opposition, there is no consequence for failure for the likes of Schneiderlin and Sigurdsson which in and of itself isn’t a bad thing but they haven’t put in a performance between them all season. Set aside Gbamin being injured, Silva can’t do anything about that, we have seen that a combination of Schneiderlin and Delph doesn’t work. Delph is being asked to play a role that he is not a natural fit for, Davies may be inconsistent but he has to be given a chance at being the guy to move the ball forward with Delph taking Schneiderlin’s place.

    Possession is good in that without the ball the opposition can’t score, but we’ve shown time and time again that we don’t need to give them the ball to score, just a set piece will do. We have no variety going forward, I’m still not sure if DCL is a bad striker or not because he isn’t getting anything to work with. It shouldn’t be a defining factor but Silva just doesn’t look like he cares, either. I really hope there is some sort of arse kicking behind the scenes, some sort of impressing upon the players that the current standard is not good enough.

    I would not in a million years reach for the David Moyes button, though. Never go back. Especially not back to a manager who has failed dismally everywhere since he left.

  4. We need a decent defence – Moyes can sort that
    We need effort and collective fight in the middle – Moyes can sort that
    We need to complete the churn in our squad (Sigs era hasn’t worked, MS? Not for me). But let’s see them with a rocket under them for a season and make our minds up on where / when they go.

    Getting a bit more training ground youth in would be great.

    We need a decent CF, not lots of half pint, Iwobi, DCL, Theo, Moise Kean options… Can Brands sort that?

  6. I said before he joined he would be terrible, his underlying numbers for previous clubs are crap.

    He is a worse manager than far Sam,just with a fancy name and better looking.

    We need a big name manager next, someone who can attract better quality players. This team is pants, people overrate our players. The majority are just big club cast offs or young players who have potential but are stinking out the place. Doesn’t help they are being managed by someone so crap.

    Sure some of us had I doubts about Silva, however, hoping this so called reputation shone over the evidence of his managing of Watford and Hull.

  7. Dyche, who has put together a solid, hard-working squad at Burnley – assembled for around ÂŁ38m, roughly equating to 20% of Silva’s spend – now sits five points and 12 places above Everton. (from the BBC).

    Silva goes and and Brands needs to be accountable for his vision for the team.

    Moyes would have this lot top 7 or 8 no probs.

    We’d be 3rd easily under the old Moyes.

  8. "In the first half hendrick came round the back totaly unmarked and got on the end of a cross. So i sat there and did nothing to change it. Im only the manager and at half time i decided not to point this out or change anything because there was no way the exact same thing would happen in the 2nd half and they would score.
    By the way. Did you notice we had 59% possession"

    This.

    That’s why I want him gone now. We still have games to make up with 30 games to go, with the right manager.

  11. I understand how you feel and your reaction. But me I do care and will say so and ask that you stick with it. Continue to make contributions on here, go to the games, let your voice be heard.

    So far this season I have seen the highlights on MOTD2 vs Wolves.

    And that’s it.

    Other commitments have seen me miss the games at the start of the season, followed by a complete lack of interest in watching something that is going to make me depressed.

    Life throws up and downs at us every day, but I don’t need overpaid soccerballers confirming all that is wrong with the world currently.

    I want Everton to succeed. But we have been on this carousel of chaos for decades and it never gets any better. If anything the more hope we have, the worse it gets.

    At what point do you simply walk away.
    Not from Everton as such, but from this overpriced, gambling encouraging, certain team favouring, corporate mess that is the modern game.

  12. DON’T CARE

    And won’t watch this shower until we remove this useless fool from the club. And take most of his staff with him.

    I understand how you feel and your reaction. But me I do care and will say so and ask that you stick with it. Continue to make contributions on here, go to the games, let your voice be heard.

  13. Tbf if he came out with criticism of the players he’d completely lose the dressing room.
    Its just simple deflectipn. He just not good at it and really has no where to go with.
  14. He needs to make big changes. Players need dropped. He doesn’t seem to me to be a brave or confident manager. I wonder if Brands has more control than is necessary
  15. I’m beginning to wonder if the whole possession / stats ethos has become the overriding factor with this "manager"

    Do the players get smoke blown up their arses during the week for their game stats, even if the result was poor?

    Do the players actually believe they are individually doing well because their own stats look good on the ipad?

    I suspect the answer is ‘yes’ to all three questions – but not just at Everton.

    The likes of Burnley are always going to allow us to have plenty of possession, knowing we will play loads of pointless ‘Martinez’ passes before running out of ideas around the penalty box. We don’t have the players to play that way, both in midfield and attack, and with the sale of Gana we lost our main tackler, so struggle to regain possession and our so called ‘pressing’ game implodes.

  16. He equates meaningless possession in our own half with controlling the game.

    He’s a huge liability and it makes me so frustrated that we’ll waste more games before the inevitable.

  17. The thought of chopping and changing manager mid-season fills me with dread but Marco comes across as a pretty poor communicator and seems to lack a certain “come on we can still do this” response to setbacks. Several of his key players also seem to give up a bit easily when things don’t go according to plan.
    Final worry for me is this blooming 4-2-3-1 being churned out whoever we play which means he is just repeating the same pattern of play regardless. Everyone knows what to expect from us and we are springing no surprises on any one.
    Players are not blameless though. Lacking in heart and application when things go a bit wrong.
  18. In all seriousness, his whole post-match response is becoming more perplexing the more I listen to it. I can get trying to show optimism and keep heads up etc.

    However, that abject performance and result can not be swept under the carpet with glib remarks like ‘we deserved more’ and that trying to imply we dominated.

    He should be upset and angry with them. What’s worse is that if he actually believes the nonsense he spouted, then his expectations are atrociously low.

    We did not look a threat in front of goal and we did not look dangerous from our set-pieces, bar Gylfi’s free kick early on. In fact, we looked pretty bloody dire!

    All this is correct.

    The guy is simple.

    • His English is minimal/sound-bite only
    • Tactics poor
    • Evident in never bringing us back from a losing position to a win
    • Terrible touchline manner (fiddles with tie or whatever, but silent and unable to communicate)

    Goes. And soon.

  19. Should never, ever been appointed to manage Everton Football Club in the first place.

    At least Keoman had won numerous Dutch caps and medals during his playing career so you could sort of understand why he was appointed

    Martinez..well he’d just put a big shiny massive piece of silverware in the boardroom at Wigan so you could of sort of understand why he was appointed….

    However, EFC is not Wigan or any small Dutch team that Keoman was associated with this is Everton Football Club and we should start acting like it.

    Was talking to my dad before and we compared Silva to Catterick…

  20. Surprised anybody still listens to him. I’ve not listened to a single presser of his since this time last season.

    He’s becoming more Martinez every week.
    I give up

    I only watch him because he always looks like he’s going too burst out in tears mate, and I keep hoping his next interview is the one where it happens for real.

  21. Been travelling all day, sat in Athens airport right now, couldn’t believe it when I just logged on and saw this thread. He can’t have long left in the job, these results are getting ridiculous. No goals scored against palace, villa, sheff Utd and Burnley? Unreal.

  23. I have always thought that he might turn it around, but, over the last few games I have lost faith. His reaction to the game today is, for me, the final nail in his coffin. If he thinks today’s display was in any way acceptable he needs to be sacked now. I think I could have just about accepted him coming out and saying , we were woeful I apologize to the fans and the board and we are going to make sure you never witness a display like this again.

    I couldn’t agree with you more.
