The Brazilian slipped awkwardly in yesterday's 3-2 defeat at Brighton and had to be withdrawn with just 30 minutes on the clock.
The 27-year-old left the American Express Community Stadium on crutches and now faces an as-yet undetermined spell on the sidelines, with recovery times for the injury anywhere between 6 and 12 weeks.
A statement from Everton read: "Medical staff will speak with the Club's knee consultant in the coming days to ensure the fastest possible return to play".

On a more positive note it may open up an opportunity for Moise Kean to show what he can do but with the current manager I'm not holding my breath.

Grade 2, with proper rehab/physical therapy, can be overcome in as little as 4 weeks. Though I'd prefer they go at least 6 so we don't get another Gbamin situation.
Only positive I can think of is that maybe now Marco Dope-o will be forced to play Kean, even putting Richy back out left where he loves to play. Of course it can be equally negative in that Silva will probably just move Iwobi left and stick the Icelandic statue in the middle of the field again.
 Bill @2 didn't see that you wrote the same thing re: Kean. One can pray, mate, one can pray.

With what I can only trust will be a very disciplined, regimented rehab program, 4-6 weeks is by no means out of the question. Then again, this is the same medical staff that was behind Gbamin's rehab as well, so

Silva will never get another job in the Premier League. No other club will touch him. Why we ever hired him defies belief. His goose is cooked. If he is not sacked he will relegate us. In my view we are in a worse position than when we sent for the fat man. Give it to Unsworth, then search the world for a winner.

I can't see where our next win will come from at the minute.
21 Posted 27/10/2019 at 18:50:52
This is not going to be Everton's season in any shape or form. We are in shit creek, while you know who wins the title.
22 Posted 27/10/2019 at 19:06:55
Wonder if he'll move Iwobi out left and start playing Sigurdsson in the 10 again. Wouldn't mind him trying Richarlison left, Iwobi central, Walcott on the right and Calvert-Lewin up top...

Let's home Bernard makes a full recovery, and best wishes to him.

Come on already!

Its a really sad indictment of where we are, that, of the five players you mentioned in your post, 80% of them are no where near top-six standard.
Although, Iwobi does looks much better in the middle instead of Sigurdsson.
And Richarlison goes missing in plenty of games, but is also clearly our biggest goal-threat.
The biggest mistake Silva made on Saturday (as Im sure many have already said, Ive not looked at TW since the game)
is bringing Sigurdsson on.
Kean or DCL should have come on for Bernard, put up front, with Richarlison moving to the left. Simple, eh, Marco?
Keep the trio of Gomes, Davies and Iwobi together in the middle that had looked more effective than any line-up hes tried this season.
But, no, he disrupts it to bring our record signing on.
It was kind of a chaotic game, and I cant lay all the blame on Silva for this one mistake, but as the game wore on, the folly of this substitution became more evident, as there was no way he would have had the balls to sub Sigurdsson back off the pitch.
Really annoying and frustrating to be a blue at the moment.
Please dont replace Bernard with Siggo in the next couple of months.

Dont worry though, one of the first team will come out and tell us that everything is in hand and that we are an ambitious club going in the right direction... blah blah blah blah f***ing blah

Everyone became Moshiri fans because he can pull a bigger loan in than Kenwright. Some were delighted to have a photo with Dan Meis.
Now look at us, another stage of Turmoil under Marvelous Moshiri.
Gbamin out, Bernard out, Gomes in and out, Mina in and out. Now you can see what the manager and the next manager are up against.

Where Everton is concerned, though, we can usually take some comfort from the fact that – just when we think things can't get any worse – well then they usually do... with big feckin' bells on.

Bernard isn't injury prone.

But I agree Jim's comment is a bit silly.

Time will tell.
45 Posted 30/10/2019 at 10:55:31
I'm guessing he'll be back around Christmas time but hopefully not rushed back to help out a desperate manager which could ruin his and our season.
I believe he could play the No 10 role, a quick brain and quick get who sadly lacks the shooting ability of Siggy. I do understand why his strengths including work rate are being utilised on the left but, if Kean wants to play, he has to learn work rate, intensity, defending and link-up play is a part of the role of all modern-day forwards.
