Marco Silva’s tenure at Everton was a huge talking point last season as things started on the cusp of being acceptable and tragic but soon fell off the boil entirely, leading to many supporters calling for the Portuguese head coach to be sacked over the winter.

Early dropped points at newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers and away to Bournemouth bookended a tough win over Southampton, with Huddersfield, West Ham and Arsenal soon ensuring we had to wait until late September for another three points.

Brief signs of promise followed by holding out Chelsea and keeping Liverpool at bay until deep into stoppage-time, but only the would-be relegated duo of Fulham and Huddersfield put fewer points on the board between December 1 and February 25, with Silva’s men recording three wins and two draws in 14 games.

February 26 brought about another win, though, as we thrashed Cardiff City 3-0, and began a run of form that would only be bettered by Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea – with the Pensioners playing one game more and recording one extra point.

The new season has started with many signs of promise, as well, with Silva overseeing a draw and a win, without the Blues conceding any goals.

For some supporters, this has presented them with a chance to reflect on where they see the boss’ tenure heading, and whether they are Silva in, or Marco out…

  • Every manager should be given a fair chance, and instant success should not be expected. Many of our fans are very short on patience, but I am afraid that is what is needed. Such fans just keep the managers turning over and success away. The manager and team need to be supported so they can bring success, not derided all the time dragging us down.
