In a crucial game against West Ham, it was another defeat for Frank Lampard and Everton, with his days at the club now looking to be numbered.

Two goals from Jared Bowen made it eleven games without a win for Frank Lampard's side who are now 20th in the Premier League. From fans protesting at games, to even confronting players, Lampard, and now the owners, Everton fans have had enough.

After surviving relegation by the skin of their teeth last season, Everton fans would have hoped for progress and move up the table.

Unfortunately, the situation has got worse. Failure to invest in the right areas, injuries to key players, and issues at the boardroom have been huge contributing factors to Everton's downfall.

Frank Lampard Gives Honest Assessment On Everton's Struggles


Frank Lampard may not be the person to get them out of this situation, and was very honest with the situation that faces Everton.

Those things are not my choice, as such. My job is to work and focus and keep my head down.  I have absolute confidence in how I want to coach. And if they are difficult conditions, for a lot of different reasons which I am very aware of, then that’s it.

I just have to do my job and it’s not for me to make too many diversions around it, rather than talk about things that I can affect – and that’s the players and trying to get the right results.

It would hard for me to sit here and talk about the right direction because of the result. We stayed up by the skin of our teeth last year and were five points shy of safety with not many games to go.

I've said that we might stay where we are, and was questioned whether that is competitive enough talk. But, for me, if you are in a club where the club has moved downwards with serious investment, the conditions now are that we don't have that investment and we are trying to rebuild."

Everton's owner, Farhad Moshiri, was in attendance for today's game, and failed to say if he would back Lampard, saying: "It's been a bad run of results for us all, and for Frank, but I would never say that to you. We've just got to start winning, haven't we?"


While Lampard has failed to impress at Chelsea, Derby County and Everton, the problems at Everton go far beyond him.

Carlo Ancelotti managed an Everton side with not much more quality than the current side to 10th place, deemed a disappointing season at the time, before winning the Champions League with Real Madrid a year later.

He's not the only top manager to fail at Goodison, with Rafa Benitez and Marco Silva among the names to struggle at the club despite having success elsewhere.
