His appointment was meant to bring a fresh approach to Merseyside after Sam Allardyce’s glum days kept us safe, but Marco Silva struggled to get the train rolling out of the station at first.

Things eventually began to turn around for the Portuguese in October, and an unbeaten November saw the former Watford head coach tipped for the Premier League’s Manager of the Month award.

Newcastle gaffer Rafa Benitez took the acclaim in the end, and sadly for us, the worst was yet to come as our season very much spiralled out of control as soon as December hit.

Thankfully, the tides have started to turn back in our favour following three defeats in the space of a week, and our return to form has seen Silva back in the Premier League’s good books with a nomination for the March Manager of the Month award.

Last month saw the Toffees record a solid run of results to keep us in contention for seventh place, even after all hope for European football was gone, and had it not been for a few errors in the North East, we could have gone unbeaten.

In the end, our March record came to a halt with three wins, a draw, and one loss – including the 2-0 belter against Chelsea and comfortable walk in the park at West Ham.

When the club shared that Silva was up for the most recent managerial accolade, this is what some of the Goodison Park faithful had to say…

  • So far Marco Silva has not done much, and he has taken us backwards rather than forwards. That is after a great deal of expenditure. Sam Allardyce was not given a chance after stiffening the defence, but not being given the time to work on the attack. Sam achieved more than Marco did by bringing us up from 13th to 8th in the table, whilst Marco has taken us down it. It takes more management skill to help a team with poor players and finance like Sam did all the time. Many of our fans did not have the intelligence to see this though and wanted him out, before giving him a proper chance. Under Marco the team is more attacking and entertaining to be sure, and lets hope the results continue to improve on the abysmal run we had under him. It looks like things may be improving and lets hope they continue to do so. Any manager should improve things given the amount of expenditure and time that will be given to Marco, and lets hope this will happen with him. COYB!
