Things have turned very bad under Silva, but the fact that things have turned very bad under our last 4 managers suggests to me that things perhaps run a bit deeper than simply getting a new manager in and repeating the cycle.
When next to no one is playing well or showing Leadership, all your B+ players start looking like C+. Whereas get just one or two quality performers in and suddenly you have a good team as they make everyone play better.People say there is a lot of quality in the team, but is there?
Keane and Zouma are secondary CBs. Young lads who need a leader next to them.
Davies is hit and miss although I have been more impressed with him recently. Gueye is a stopper.
Walcott, Tosun, DCL all not good enough.
So your left with Pickford, Sig, Gomes, Digne, Bernard, Richarlison and (potentially) Mina given his pedigree.
It's a start but pound for pound have Wolves and WH got as many good players as us? Id say so. Same with Watford.
The last few weeks have been particularly poor but as I keep saying, this is a huge job of fixing.
