In recent times former Everton manager Sam Allardyce has again been attempting to rewrite history with his words about the fanbase at Goodison Park incredibly lacking patience and not quite knowing what they really wanted from a manager when it comes to playing style.
Now, as previously covered on this site I did see a strand of sense in what Allardyce was saying and given the more vociferous in the fanbase, his choice of words did apply to the ‘success now’ brigade that every club has.
So whilst it would be right in my opinion the levy those comments at those calling for Silva’s sack, and seeing him replaced by the increasingly ‘unspecial one’ Jose Mourinho, the elaboration to protect his own back still left him wrong overall.
With poor form Everton and there’s no point in denying that, the weekend’s victory over Lincoln City was much needed as frankly a defeat could not be entertained and Silva was obviously made aware of Allardyce’s words, and his responses left me in stitches.
When tasked with questions about our former gaffers’ comments on style the Telegraph have Silva saying.
“My style? How I dress? My hair? Ah, my style of football. I am not here to make comments about him. You have to look at whether these people love Everton, if they want Everton really winning, if they want some stability inside the club? If there are real Everton fans talking like that, then maybe we have to be aware and to look at it, but if some people don’t want good results, just instability within our club, they are not worth listening to. If it is David Moyes, maybe I would listen because he did something really important at this club. If somebody loves our club and they are not happy, OK. I see a person who loves our club and wants us to win. If not, I do not care. In this case, it is not important at all.”
Well, I liked it!
