I just can’t see it. I have felt for the last 3 weeks we are gonna be on the receiving end of this call.

It will probably end up Ferguson in charge by Saturday and Goodison will be jumping for our visit!

I’m going and always enjoy visits to Goodison with mixed results over the years, but I just get feeling we are gonna be there at the wrong time!

So traditionally managers get sacked after being beaten by Chelsea.  Of course that means directors choose not to introduce their new man until after playing us, so the old guy is just left hanging.  If I were Everton, I'd have planned on keeping the next guy on ice until after both Liverpool and Chelsea games were done.  Then they have a full week before Man U away.  But being beaten heavily by a weakened Liverpool team might just push them into doing it a game early (or promoting an assistant manager for 1 game).

Isn't it usually West Brom for us?

Maybe, I hadn't noticed.  Jm twice, Scolari, AVB, RdM.  I think it is just 5 mid-season sackings of managers in 16 post RA seasons, and  6 in 26 years since 1993.
Not very many for a club with an undeserved reputation.

JM Rosenberg
Scolari  Hull (draw)
AVB  WBA (loss  or a win/win for recent ex WBA boss, RDM)
RdM Juve (loss  - last game I watched that season)
JM2 Leicester (loss  - they were good that year - win/win for Ranieri)

Surely if Silva survives today, he'll be in charge on Saturday?

Yes.  I think there is some speculation because the owner is in town.  But as we all know you don't need the owner to be in town to sack someone at Goodison.

If he is in town now, it is more likely to be to interview candidates.

Zouma, Kova and Pulisic have played almost every minute of our last 4 games and could do with a rest, especially Kova and Pulisic.

Hopefully see Rudiger back for this one, even if its off the bench.

Prediction: 3-1 to us
