Everton have the blues. This season, the other Mersey club is going through difficult times. On the ground, we cannot say that the results are there. In 20 Premier League games, the English team has won only 3 games, for only 6 draws and 11 defeats. She therefore took only 15 points and shares last place in the standings with Southampton. The Toffees also have the second worst attack in the league with 15 goals scored. Only Wolverhampton do worse with 12 goals scored. In defense, they conceded 28 goals. They are not the worst in this sector with in particular 4 clean sheets in the Premier League. But they aren’t the most reassuring either.

The Frank Lampard Failure

Very feverish and uninspired in the game offensively, they were also eliminated from the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup. For all these reasons but above all because the club is in a delicate position after ten games without a win in all competitions, the leaders decided to thank Frank Lampard on Monday. “Everton Football Club are able to confirm that Frank Lampard has left his role as Senior Men’s First Team Manager today. Joe Edwards, Paul Clement, Ashley Cole and Chris Jones have also left the club. Alan Kelly will remain as goalkeeper coach”we could read on the press release.

Recruited in January 2022 to help the club turn a corner and be competitive in the English top flight, Lampard failed in his mission and only lasted a year on the Toffees bench. In addition to the results, tensions also emerged within his locker room. The British press even spoke of a clash with Abdoulaye Doucouré a few days before his departure. But that’s not the one and only problem for Everton. Very angry, the supporters demand the departure of the management. In addition to the sports field, the management of the club poses a problem according to them.

Colossal losses

Over the last three years, Everton has posted losses of 421.7 million euros. Last April, the DailyMail had also explained that the club could be sanctioned with a large fine or even a withdrawal of points by the governing bodies, which authorize a maximum deficit of 125 million euros. All this did not prevent the Toffees from investing during the transfer windows. The Guardian also explains that since the arrival of the main shareholder Farhad Moshiri on February 27, 2016, the club has spent 792.3 million euros on the transfer market to buy around fifty players. Which is huge in just under seven years.

The English media also specifies that Everton also recovered 452.7 million euros thanks to the sales of players. The balance between purchases and sales is therefore negative. At the same time, the businessman has embarked on a major project since he has already spent more than £500 million, or approximately 565.7 million euros, for the construction of a new stadium in Bramley-Moore Dock. But it is possible that Moshiri will no longer be in charge of the club when the new enclosure is delivered. Indeed, several English media explain that the owner of Everton is open to a minority or majority sale of the club.

A week to find a coach and players

The Anglo-Iranian would be looking for investors and would also seek to recover part of the sum paid into the club. The Guardian specifies that he expects offers of more than 565.7 million euros. Several potential buyers have already approached the firm Deloitte, responsible for managing the sale, to take up the torch or collaborate with it. But the future owners know that they will arrive in a club in the hard and under construction. And it’s not finished. Everton will have to find a new manager after the dismissal of Frank Lampard. Several names have been cited, including those of Wayne Rooney and Marcelo Bielsa, who would be the priority.

But the British media assure that El Loco would not be very reassured by the Blues project and would not want to take up the torch. The departure of Lampard also poses a problem for the transfer window. Indeed, the English coach had requested certain players from his management. This was particularly the case of Moussa Dembélé, who was his n°1 objective in attack. As explained on our site, the two men were often in contact but his departure from Everton cooled the track, since the French would have come to participate in Lampard’s project. Same thing for Arnaut Danjuma, who will eventually join Tottenham. Real hard knocks one week from the end of the transfer window. Everton will therefore have to urgently find a coach and players (Hakim Ziyech is being tracked). The club is still in danger of breaking the bank. On the pitch and behind the scenes, Everton are definitely going through difficult times.
