Everton were dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship strugglers Millwall this evening, a result which has tipped some Toffees over the edge, with some giving up on Marco Silva.
The Everton faithful went into the 2018/19 season with renewed optimism, after the footballing anti-christ, Sam Allardyce, was replaced by the more forward-thinking Marco Silva.
Backed by Farhad Moshiri’s millions, the Merseyside side did some decent summer business, bringing in Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes and Lucas Digne from Barcelona, to go with the £40 million addition of Richarlison from Silva’s former side, Watford.
The Toffees didn’t have the best of starts to the season, but as with all new managers, Everton fans gave Marco Silva the benefit of the doubt, with the belief that things would get better.
However, things haven’t gotten much better, with the Blues sitting in 11th place in the Premier League, and now being dumped out of the FA Cup by Millwall, the 19th placed Championship side.
Having won just three games in their last 10 outings, it seems as thought though patience has finally worn thin at Goodison Park, with a number of fans taking to twitter to demand #SilvaOut.
Here are some of the best and most poignant tweets…
I’ve been off this for a few weeks now, sick of the messages. But, after that, Silva needs to go. Fucking sick of it. He’s a joke. The referee was a fucking disgrace. The whole fucking game was a disgrace! Get rid of him NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #SilvaOut #Joker 🤬🤬🤬😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

These Evertonian’s have even named the managers he would like to see take over from Silva – if he were to be given the boot.
Marco silva, take your zonal marking and your over rated self elsewhere. Getting sick of these crap managers ruining my club and spending stupid money on bang average players. Chris wilder from sheff Utd or Eddie how will do me. Good British managers who are successful. #silvaout

It’s fair to say a few Watford fans are enjoying seeing the Portuguese struggle too…
What a difference one man can do to the feeling around a club. Everton sit 11th in the league and out of both cups. Watford sit 7th….
I should probably add Everton spent about 100 million in the summer. While Watford made 18 million+
