"It's so easy to create a crisis at Everton Football Club." Marco Silva is making it look like a child's play.
The Toffees boss was optimistic ahead of Sheffield United's visit, but after another 90 minutes in the absence of a specific plan, Silva was much more restrained as he faced further doubts about the fate of this Everton team.
In today's evidence, and the one offered during the first six games of the season, this fate may not be the top half, let alone the top six. A 2-0 loss to Blades, which kept Everton in the lead all afternoon, despite allowing 70 percent of the ball, is another serious accusation of Silva's lack of progress towards his players, who appear to have stopped. to listen to the Portuguese. Manager.
Either that or Silva is not conveying your message. Nor can a team manager be expected to disturb the establishment in the top six.
Silva regretted the individual mistakes once again and they were certainly a factor against United, with Jordan Pickford stitching Yerry Mina into the opening while Mina himself was blamed for the second goal, which triggered a massive exodus from Goodison Park. Misfortune has become such a recurring theme that it can no longer be attributed to misfortune.
As Sheffield United has shown Everton, good organization and unity can cover these mistakes. The fact that Everton is being punished so often by them says as much about the unit as the individuals within it.
There were holes in Silva's plan from the start. Everton started with Fabian Delph as midfielder with Morgan Schneiderlin, trying to move a little further with Richarlison and Bernard, while Gylfi Sigurdsson walked everywhere except where he might have some use.
Only Bernard offered any cunning, however, he was the one who was replaced 10 minutes into the second half when Silva began to throw all he could muster into the Sheffield United wall, hoping that some of it could persist. With 20 minutes left and all three substitutions made, Everton had Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Moise Keane, Cenk Tosun, Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott, all on the field, though apparently with no idea what form they might form.
"It was a bad result and in the second half it was a bad performance."
Marco Silva was not happy about his Everton team showing today after losing at home to Sheffield United.

United took advantage of chaos to extend their leadership through Mousset. John Lundstram took Mina for a walk to the right side before making a single pass on Mousset's path, making a single run that escaped the attention of the rest of the Everton defender. A nutmeg in Pickford later and Everton were in bad shape.
There were 11 minutes left, but there was no hope. Few motives get angry like Goodison Park, but Everton fans could barely muster the energy to scorn. Instead, many headed for the exits, having seen their team lose for the fourth time in the last five against newly promoted teams.
When Silva starts his last inquiry, what he will find is a team that have conceded two goals in each of the last five games in all competitions (Villa, Wolves, Lincoln and Bournemouth had fun before Blades reached Goodison) while at Por On the other hand, they scored five in six Premier League games, shooting blanks in half of them.
Your verdict should consist of more questions than answers before a complicated Carabao Cup trip to the other side of Sheffield midweek. Since leaving Estoril in 2014, Silva has run five clubs, with 53 games being the longest of his kingdoms – he has reached half a century today with Everton. This is a coach who is yet to prove that he can retain the attention of any team after a season or more and all signs suggest that the Everton team is turning off Silva as well.
