“To help them know why and understand why, even if you prepare and understand the plan, you are doing always the same mistakes.

History might determine the Everton job is too much for Silva, but there is a debilitating trend since Moshiri arrived. For so long Everton were stable, hovering just below the top four with Spurs, often a good signing or two from challenging for a Champions League place.
