Everton hero Stubbs: Fans liked Frank, but the players..


Everton's first-team must stand up and take responsibility for their poor performances this term.

That is the view of club legend Alan Stubbs, who was speaking after the sacking of coach Frank Lampard.

The ex-Chelsea boss has lost his post with the Toffees with the team in the relegation zone.

"I'm a little bit in two minds," Stubbs told Toffee TV.

"I feel for Frank because I feel he has been dealt a hand that was very difficult in the first place but, in the last six weeks, I don't think the team has put the performances in to say 'we are behind the manager'.

"I thought Saturday was tepid; we could have been there for two weeks and not scored. We don't look a threat and the players just went through the motions.

“Unfortunately, as we've seen with Everton over the past six or seven years, one person always takes the fall - and it's the manager. I like Frank, I think he is a really nice guy and he got Everton. It was the first time in quite a few years that there was a relationship between the fans and the manager. Unfortunately, it just hasn't worked out the way we would have all liked it to."
