There is plenty of positive spirits around Goodison Park this season as Everton have improved significantly under the guidance of Marco Silva.

The Toffees enter this weekend’s Merseyside derby in a fine vein of form after suffering just one defeat in their past seven Premier League matches, which came against Manchester United, and boosted their form with a hard-fought victory over Cardiff City at the weekend.

However, football took a back seat this week as fans paid their respect to former favourite Gary Speed on the seventh anniversary of his death, which sent shockwaves across British football due to the tremendous impact he had in his playing career.

Speed spent two years with Everton, joining from Leeds United, before joining Newcastle in 1998 and spending six years on Tyneside. He then spent a further four years with Bolton before finishing his playing career with Sheffield United.

Management soon followed and he is attributed with playing a key part in the growth of Welsh football within the last decade and many Everton fans took the opportunity to pay their tributes on social media.

  • Everton have continued to improve under Silva, and long may it continue. We came from 13th to 8th in the table, and now are up to 6th. Hopefully we can maintain that position, and even improve on it.
