Having said that, Silva has to go,

He is a very highly paid yes man.

As I and many others have said we don't know how involved he is at Finch Farm, with Training preparation for games, team selection etc. I know that does, and basically should be within the Coach/Manager's remit, but with recent team selections, surely if acting as a true DoF in the interests Everton, he should intervene.
Then again as I said we are not privy to what should be happening, or is happening, so may be pointing an undeserved finger at Marcel Brands.

Central defender - Zouma was pursued, we failed and failed to have a plan B.
Central midfielder - Gbamin came in for Gana, bad luck ?
Centre forward/ goalscorer - Kean, fantastic talent but needs time
Mr Brands, There is your to do list.
Get us a spine.

I suppose that means that Silva's stay of execution might be longer than we thought.

Of course, managers need to be capable of dealing with all this nonsense, but the players really should be embarrassed. I don't think any of them really care. If they did, we would see it, and we don't.
Everton FC, Home of the half-arsed.

What Brands is about to find out is that being on the Board is a poisoned chalice. More is now expected from Brands. In his Board role, which was to bring more control over selection and contracts to the footballing side, fundamental change at Everton became an added responsibility as well. Things obviously have to change at Everton. In his interview, he gave a brief insight into his role a Finch Farm, which failed to impress.
It's obvious that change is necessary within Everton structures, but Brands has appeared to go down the status quo route, rather than directing change.
