Everton sack Lamps but a Moyes switch unlikely


Everton have sacked manager Frank Lampard after less than a year in charge at Goodison Park.

The Hammers bashed the last nail into into their former player’s midfielder’s cpffin with a 2-0 win at the weekend when it could have been David Moyes had the result gone the other way.

I’ve always had a lot of time for Lamps who. as a younger player. was among the most¬† approachable guys in the game but his time in management has sadly been the opposite to his achievements as a player.

Having lasted just under a year at Goodison and around 18 months at Chelsea after a decenty spell in the Championship with Derbnby County, it will be interesting to see where he surfaces next.

More interesting for Hammers followers at this stage however,  are whether many rumours that we could received approaches for David Moyes emerge from Everton,

It sounds – on the face of it – to be a manufactured tale dreamed up by a few imaginative media people so I’m not holding my breath.

    Everton have made the right decision, they now have a better chance of staying up. Their board have acted correctly. Our board are a disgrace. Moyes should be sacked, our record over last 12 months is as bad as everton, a team we only managed 38% possession, a game where we played more dire football. Moyes has achieved one win in 3 months in the PL !!! What is wrong with you the board, you deserve everything coming your way, 20 thousand at games next year in the championship..

    I agree Moyes has to go, we will back to losing t he first decent team we meet. Everton had enough chances, if they have had a half decent attack we could have lost.

    There must be something wrong with the training regime at West Ham. Ings comes in , having been fit for a while and does one or two sessions at West Ham and ends that tense that he gets injured. Get rid of Moyes now and his backroom team, they are VERY POOR.

    I have to agree although I’m not sure Everton are going to be much better off as they are running off the same list of has beens (Dyche, Bielsa, Espirito Santo – add Benitez to that list for West Ham) who have failed previously in the Premier League which is why they are currently out of work. An example of how a club should be run is Brighton who when they were going to lose Potter had Roberto de Zebro lined up and look how well that has worked out (Brighton 6th, Chelsea 10th). Unfortunately we have a board that may like football but don’t know anything about it. Their strategies are cliched and out of date and if they can’t see how bad our team is what hope is there. We have some excellent players but they clearly don’t believe that what they are being asked to do by David Moyes will work and it shows.
