The steady ship Marco Silva hoped to build hit an iceberg in Newcastle, and now fans on the Grand Old Team forum are discussing who could replace the manager.

When we returned from our brief break in play to beat Cardiff City comfortably and then hold Liverpool to a point, it appeared as if Silva had finally managed to turn things around following our treacherous start to the year.

The Newcastle defeat, though, showed that was not the case when the team collapsed and errors cropped up from key players throughout.

Changing the squad is a much harder, and more expensive, task than replacing the guy at the helm, however, and as such, the boss’ future has once again been cast into doubt by some of the Goodison Park faithful.

His situation could, of course, flip again at the weekend when we face Chelsea, but some supporters have lofty ambitions of who should be the next guy in the dugout if Silva cannot prove his worth…

“Eleven years today since Arteta smacked in that pile driver against Fiorentina. The hero we need.” – Blue61 (March 12, 17:52)

“A man we can all get behind. Twitter and Facebook, more call for him then anyone else.” – 4737Carlin (March 12, 18:07)

“Yes let’s replace our mid table manager with a bloke who has managed one game in his whole career (which he lost). Silva shouldn’t go because we can’t keep changing managers but if he did there would only be one name that we should consider. Jose. Show him the money.” – Saint Domingo (March 12, 18:10)

“Mancini, Wenger, Benitez, Rudi Garcia, Nagelsmann, Fonseca, Sampaoli – All realistic managers we should be looking at before Arteta. He needs to go cut his teeth elsewhere.” – ForeverBlue92 (March 12, 18:28)

“Imagine trying to blag Mourinho we are ambitious Hahahaha. Unfortunately I suggested Conte the other day totally forgetting we are a shambles and Lukaku seen right through us two years ago.” – TheSecondComing (March 12, 18:35)

“Has anybody considered hiring Jose, Wenger and SAF, with Moyes as their number 2?” – MarcelsGoat (March 12, 18:37)

“The Jose shouts are daft. 1) He ain’t coming. Ever. 2) He’s looking very out-dated and his hunger is all but gone. 1 applies for Conte too unfortunately.” – ToffeeTim (March 12, 18:45)

“3) They would not be able to work under Brands’ system.” – CatcherInTheRye (March 12, 22:45)

“Heard Cocu mentioned.” – BillyBlue80 (March 12, 23:42)

“1) Cocu? Nah cronyism. 2) Arteta? Too early for him yet needs to go somewhere and learn the cries. 3) Silva’s not going anywhere yet. He’ll get reviewed at the end of May and probably kept on with another review at the end of Oct… and as many subsequent 3month reviews as required until he goes or gains the longish term confidence of the Board.” – Degsy (March 13, 06:24)

  • I have followed Everton for 60 years & am totally devastated by the whole management of Everton fc.
    Silva has no idea what he is doing, far too inexperienced for a club of our size. Our Club is more concerned with other issues than its core business of football

  • I am a Everton fan from the mid 80’s. Though i live in South Africa. The only manager that made everton a club to be reckon would even though he disn’t have the league best players is David Moyes. With the players has now and the finanicsl back of the major shate holder, i believe he can take Everton into the top 5 . He took everton to number 4 one year. Something Dilva will never avjieve with any club in the leahue. The longer they keep Silva the worse Everton will perform. Look a change that took place at united when they changed the manager. Maybe when they decide to take out Silva, it would be to late because by then the damage to the club would alteady be done. He is like a star player who starts of well but fades away during the season. If the player should be sold so should he be removed. I dont see everton finishing in the top 10 but betwern 13 to 15 in the league. I feel his sell by date at everton has expired.

  • raffa raffa raffa we need a manager who can cut the mustard not a fly by night or one who has never managed
