Frank Lampard fired by Everton

Frank Lampard

According to multiple reports, Frank Lampard has been fired by Everton after a disastrous run of form amid serious fan unrest against the ownership and board of directors.

Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph, our partners in the UK at Sky Sports and Fabrizio Romano have all reported that Lampard has been fired and an official statement is expected soon.

Lampard has been in charge at Everton for less than a year.

Everton currently sits 19th in the Premier League with just 15 points from their first 20 games of the season. They have picked up just one point from their last seven games and the 2-0 defeat at West Ham on Saturday was seemingly the final nail in Lampard’s coffin.

Who is to blame?

Of course, Lampard is to blame for the play on the pitch and the fact Everton are in yet another relegation scrap.

He kept them up in dramatic fashion last season but the Everton board failed to back him in the summer window and the same issues remain both on and off the pitch.

In recent weeks, Everton’s fans have stepped up their protests against majority owner Farhad Moshiri, long-time chairman Bill Kenwright and the entire board.

Lampard was well liked by most Evertonians and was seen as just being part of the problem instead of the main problem.

Whoever comes in next has to somehow get Everton back to scoring goals regularly and keep the reasonably solid defensive unit intact, while also uniting the fanbase as they have yet another relegation scrap coming up.
