With Everton’s form slipping as 2018 came to an end in the Premier League, although there was the high of a victory over Burnley, that was sandwiched by Tottenham Hotspur, Brighton and now Leicester City disappointments, and for some fans they’ve already now had enough of manager Marco Silva.
On the back of the most recent loss as we made it one win in eight attempts, the performance seems to have tipped many over the edge and on social media in the aftermath of the game, plenty were calling for former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to be quickly appointed to turn our season around as we’ve slipped down the table into tenth place.
It would certainly be an ambitious move, but it seems hasty as managers need time (a commodity rarely given in the game these days) and there are always upsets along the way. I know the ‘Special One’ has a solid track record of success, but in terms of style of football he’s a rich man’s Sam Allardyce, so how many times will the club need to pivot before it’s enough?
Yep all day long but won’t happen cos we like nice guys

Silva isn’t the answer. Out of his depth. Not seeing how tactically astute he is when we lose games like this and some of the draws we have had have been ridiculous. We should make a play for mourinho

I agree entirely. World class manager, proven winner, extremely motivated and out of work. Its a no brained surely.

Another slip up against Lincoln in the FA Cup and the Board may not have a choice though.
