1) Back to back wins
2) only 1 goal conceded
3) once Newcastle got their equaliser, instead of collapsing we went on to win (witness the Leicester collapse and Jamie Carraghers nasty (albeit true) comments)
4) over 20 shots on goal in last 2 matches this is important the 1st goal today came as a result of Siggys shot we made our own luck. Something that all the best teams do. Clearly this seems to be a change / instruction from the new boss and its already reaping results. We may even start seeing a few goals from outside the area?!?
5) so nice to play 2 up front again rather than 1 man isolated. Incredible how Duncan addresses this immediately and CA continued it but Silva never tried it even once
6) the team seen mentally stronger, more of a unit and more resilient
Buzzing at the moment after months and months of depression
Baines is one of my favourite ever Everton players

As for the team... well done. The quality is finally showing.
I hope that January brings in more surprises and a few exciting names.

Ancelotti has been able to turn around the performance of most of the players, though there are a few stragglers. There is still the legacy of past managers, which fortunately Brands has been addressing and now Ancelotti will be helping him with.
It is now obvious it was too big of a job for Silva. It will be interesting to see the changes at Finch Farm and what Moshiri next move will be regarding the internal management of the Club. Ancelotti knows that change has to be both on and off the pitch to achieve his objectives.
Moshiri must have convinced him there was a willness or plan to do this, for Ancelotti to decide to join Everton.

2020 looks a lot better now with us looking up the table and not down. Top 6 not an unrealistic target Id say with still half the season to go.
If he can get us past the 3rd round of the FA cup and to the final and win, the guy will get legend status.

Consistency from DCL and Mason Holgate proves they are the real deal.
I was well impressed with Richarlison yesterday, a great assist. I particularly liked his last 10 minute spell, fighting for the ball, getting down the flanks, winning corners. All when Newcastle were desperate to get long balls into our box. This passage of play and led by the determination of Richarlison was superb in breaking up play and relieving pressure on our defence. True, he needs more accuracy in his midfield passing but that will improve.
More often than not such players tire , can disappear for the last 5-10 mins and pray for the final whistle, so top marks for Richarlison for being top class at the end of the game. Impressive stuff, such commitment is infectious and bodes well for this team.

He seems to be a very supportive guy, but one who sees everything that is going on. He will wither a shirker from 20 paces with a raise of his left eyebrow.

I can remember how poorly we'd do on the Sunday after an Europa League match under Moyes.
Most positive how well the younger players have stood up.
Starting with yesterday's MotM DCL. together woth Mason Holgate, Tom Davies,Richarlison, and an improved Moise Kean, we have the nucleus of a good team.
The only thing still missing is a Moise Kean goal.
Eleven points from the last five games, only one team has a better haul.
And they were the fixtures most were dreading under Silva.

Will be an interesting game on Weds but regardless of result, the players seem totally different compared to a few weeks ago. They can now get a few days rest and enter 2020 with confidence sky high.
If Ancelotti can get the current squad playing better, I wonder if theres any chance he can get some of the misfits on loan to play like they did before we signed them.
Hats off to Moshiri for pulling our the stops on this one. Top 6 is certainly a target still - even after the debacle of Silva.

Surely Carlo hasn't had time to drum this in to the players in such a short time. Perhaps, as has been mentioned by others already on here, the players have the skills but they respect the new manager!
Baines was excellent yesterday, as was Holgate once again. DCL put in a great effort and performance, as did Richarlison. Good team performance.
It was good to see Moise Kean get a start. I thought he did quite well, although occasionally, he looked a little lost after an Everton attack had broken down well up the pitch. More game time please for him - he looks like he has it in him to do very well.
BTW, has anybody on here heard about Manure putting in an offer of 80m pds for Richarlison? Trifling sum for such a player, who has just signed a new contract! The only comment on this I have heard was made by one of the match commentators yesterday. IMO - If true, this is where we show we mean business - NOT FOR SALE!

Im basing this on just one movement at Anfield when he should have scored, but the way his first touch and pace left Liverpools defence for dead, is not something Ive seen off many Everton strikers, in all my years watching the blues?

I'm so pleased Silva's regime feels a thing of the past already...well done Ferguson and well done Ancelotti

Former Everton midfielder Li Tie has been appointed as head coach of the China National Team.
The 42-year-old succeeds Italian Marcello Lippi, who quit the job for a second time in November after a 2-1 defeat by Syria in a 2022 World Cup qualifier.
Li made 92 appearances for China and played at the 2002 World Cup.
He initially joined Everton on loan in 2002 and featured in 40 matches under then manager David Moyes, before a move to Sheffield United in 2006.
Li played just one game for the Blades before returning to China in 2008.
After retiring from playing in 2011, Li was the assistant coach of Guangzhou Evergrande and China, before taking over at Hebei Fortune and then Wuhan Zall.
Most recently, he led a China reserve side to the East Asian Championships in South Korea in December.

Perhaps we can sign that highly rated Jiang Guangtai as we need another centre-back. (Sorry Mike Gaynes, couldn't resist it!).
