BBC Sport in Turf Moor
Let us have a peek at exactly what Everton couldve won.
At Turf Moor on Saturday, Toffees supporters might have adapted a variant of the gameshow catchphrase to amount up their clubs position as their group fell to a slim but worryingly predictable 1-0 loss at Burnley.
Thats because if destiny had taken a different route, Clarets director Sean Dyche might have been in the dugout, was a reported target to the Merseyside club when Ronald Koeman was sacked in October 2017.
The Englishman remained at Turf Moor and Marco Silva was opted for by also the Merseysiders, after David Unsworth and more productively – Sam Allardyce led them to security that same season.
The two clubs are currently heading in opposite directions. Burnleys 1-0 win moved them up into fifth, while Everton dropped down to 17th – one spot above the relegation zone. They may be from the close of the weekend at the bottom three.
So have the Blues regressed since the appointment of Silva? And can this conquer what was once, at least on paper have serious repercussions for one individual?
Silva is in the next of a large scale deal at Everton, was put in charge.
The team were persistent in his very first season in charge, their eighth-placed finish the 11th time in the previous 13 campaigns theyve finished between eighth and fifth.
But having failed to infiltrate the six monopoly because the first season in charge in 2012-13 of Roberto Martinez, the Toffees hierarchy backed their man with a summer spend on new gamers more than # 100m.
Alex Iwobi, signed by Arsenal to get a hefty #34m on transfer deadline day, should have won the game against Burnley but missed two opportunities from promising places, while Fabian Delph – a snip in #8m and new from assisting Manchester City into a domestic treble – place in a shift in the center of the park.
But the big acquisitions still havent exercised. Teenager Moise Kean remains to violate his goalscoring snowball after his # 25m movement and has been used off the bench, while Ivorian Jean-Philipe Gbamin was mastered after his second match for two weeks.
Gbamins injury scarcity has resisted the loss of influential midfielder Idrissa Gueye, who left to join Paris St-Germain during the summertime.
A fourth conquer – the worst run as January 2015 of the club – signifies Silva heads into the international break together with the hiatus from club football a famously dangerous time for supervisors.
It will be of little aid to the Portuguese the conquer stopped him becoming the primary Toffees boss to direct his team to four consecutive losses by two or more goals.
It is just a few months ago that he directed them to a run of one defeat including wins over Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United without conceding.
Would things turn up? As he took his place in the post-match press conference in the table, he let out a bit.
Of course, he said . Ive exactly the exact identical fight in what we are doing. The players know what were currently doing but we need results.
At this club, we had worse moments than this and we responded well. We had a fantastic period and demonstrated what we can do. I dont have doubts about doing this again.
The fans have the right to be mad and I understand 100%. They have to keep encouraging us like they did this afternoon. We did not get the results and they have all the reasons to be mad with us.
It is all up to us work harder, win these sort of games with being more courageous, more clinical along with the front players have to be more decisive. The assurance is not the best at this time but with outcomes it may grow. We must stick together to change things and the subsequent one (West Ham in the home on 19 October) is really a must-win game.
After Allardyce was sacked, buffs left apparent their dislike of the direct style of drama and Silva was appointed.
At the time, Evertons director of soccer Marcel Brands said:Among the most significant things is that hes a guy who wants to play with attractive, attacking football and also wants to function in the arrangement weve got in Everton.
Though the number of balls have decreased and moves per game improved, other key statistics suggest a lack of improvement.
He has succeeded in 17 of his 46 Everton games, together with his 37% gain percentage and average of 1.3 points per match being worse than Allardyce, whose characters were 37.5% and 1.4.
And three variables in Saturdays match will be of serious concern.
After Jeff Hendrick finished from the corner of Ashley Westwood, it was the target the Toffees have conceded from set-pieces because the beginning of last year – more than any other hand.
Captain Seamus Colemans dismissal for 2 yellow cards, and this Silva explained asreally harsh, made him the sixth Everton player to be sent since Silva took over. Again, that is more than every other hand.
And their failure to pick up a stage after going down 1-0 at Turf Moor means theyve lost when they have fallen behind beneath Silva, all 20 games.
Which begs the question: wheres the struggle?
Considering coming to football in January 2017 silva has managed Watford Hull and now Everton.
He failed to keep the Tigers up that effort despite an impressive impact. He then moved before being chased in January 2018 lasting just 24 league games.
The Hornets blamed a strategy from Everton to Silva the preceding November because thecatalyst to their decision, stating it sparked a slump in form that saw them win only one of 11 league games.
Watford afterwards reported Everton to the Premier League for an illegal strategy, with the 2 clubs reachingan amicable arrangement on the issue in February.
At 42, this is Silva occupation for a manager where he managed over 100 games, and it was in his job in Estoril in Portugal. Coincidentally – but maybe worryingly – his normal spell in a club is 52 matches, in charge of Everton his 52nd game together with this defeat against Burnley.
Its that lack of endurance which led BBC Sports chief football writer Phil McNulty to describe his own appointment as abet at the moment.
Dyche, who has put together a hard-working squad at Burnley – built for around #38m, roughly equating to 20 percent of the spend of Silva – sits five points along with 12 places above Everton.
He gave his assistance Silva, calling that the jobrough.
I admire all managers and Everton had a go at winning now, he said. I have had my fair share of hard times and most clubs undergo it.
Every manager has their own method of dealing with problems. They utilize people around them to do that and I am certain that he will be doing that with his staff and players.
The manager requires the good and the bad thing but there are a good deal of individuals required to make that occur.
It isnt simply the supervisor, but a whole lot more people should take responsibility.
