Frank Lampard is already the history of Everton. The Toffees sacked the former English player, who arrived at Goodison Park in January 2022 to replace Rafa Benitez. The former Chelsea player saved Liverpool from relegation in the English Premier League last year, but this season his ship crashed.
the Everton is penultimate and two points away from salvation after a series of eight matches without knowing victory. They haven’t won since October 22nd (3-0 at Crystal Palace) and have successively lost their last three games at home against Brighton (1-4) and Southampton (1-2) and away in the last game against West Ham. (2-0). The 1-1 draw at Al-Ittihad against City was just a mirage.
The 15 points Everton added in 20 days is the worst league record, at this point, in the centenary of a team’s history having been in the top flight for most seasons (119). in England. Since 1954, they have not been in the Second Division having played only four times (1930-31, 1951-52, 1952-53, 1953-54) in their 144-year life. They haven’t gone down in 72 years! Last season, they faced disaster and will have to avoid it without Lampard after winning just 27.3% of duels in their ‘era’. Nobody in this Premier League has won fewer matches (three) and only Wolves (12 goals) have scored fewer goals (15).
The departure of Roberto Martinez, who took over from David Moyes (2002-13) and touched the Champions League places in his three seasons at Goodison Park (2013-16), ended the club’s stability full of ups and downs since Farhad Moshiri. took over. Purchased in 2016. Since the arrival of the British-Iranian businessman, they have spent 702 million euros on transfers! without much success. In addition, their best players (Richarlison, Lukaku, Stones, Digne…) have traveled for 412 in this period. And the 78 kilograms invested in this course in Onana, McNeil, Maupay, Garner, Joy, Tarkovsky, Kwadi… did not improve the team that was weakening each course.
in These seasons of institutional and sporting instability had seven coaches (Martnez, Koeman, Allardyce, Marco Silva, Ancelotti, Benitez and Lampard). They have played the Europa League only once (2017-18). In addition, the board led by Chairman Bill Kenwright, CEO Dennis Barrett Baxendale, Director Finance and Strategy Grant Ingels and Non-Executive Director Graeme Sharp were unable to attend the stadium against Southampton. Because of a real security threat.. the wether is hot. Replacing Lampard would reverse the situation.
