“Will Lampard Survive?” BBC’s Questions Over a Series of Slumps
Everton suffered a 1-4 rout of Brighton and Hove Albion. Everton has not won six consecutive games since the end of October last year.
Everton’s slump, led by head coach Frank Lampard, continues. He lost 1-4 in a home game against Brighton at 4:45 a.m. on the 4th (Korea time). Everton managed to avoid a complete defeat when Dermaray Gray scored a penalty kick in the extra time of the second half after losing four goals.
To Everton, which is rarely able to find a breakthrough, the BBC asked, “Will Frank Lampard survive his recent defeat?” Everton are in 16th place (3 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses) with the defeat against Brighton.
The BBC responded to Everton’s defeat by saying, “It made me look at the nervous fight against relegation for the second consecutive season. He also criticized Frank Lampard for raising more questions about his future.
After the game, Lampard pointed to the loss as “personal mistakes and overall defensive problems.” “We’re all participating in the game. It is not a matter of anger. Everyone is disappointed, and we all want to win the game,” he said.
The story with the players in the dressing room remained a secret. Lampard said, “I’m not going to comment on what I said in the dressing room. It was to correct us. The match against Manchester United is in a few days. We will have to fight for consistency,” he said.
BBC experts urged change, saying, “It’s time for Everton to make a big decision.” Paul Robinson, a former goalkeeper who played for Tottenham Hotspur, said, “Coach has a life span. We need to find out whether he is trying to give the manager time or whether he will find a new manager and give him a chance in the transfer market. If the board displaces Lampard, it will also be their failure,” he pointed out.
