‘Embarrassing’ admission brings Sean Dyche closer to sack decision

It is indeed a sign for grave concern when players aren’t playing for the shirt or their manager with the passion that is demanded, to say the least.

Everton pulled off a demolition derby crushing Chelsea 6-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday 15 April, with the specter of relegation now scaring the living daylights out of all and sundry connected to the club.

A further two-point deduction has been slapped on the club despite the recent win over Burnley at Goodison Park, leaving the Toffees only two points above the bottom three. Understandably, fans are beginning to turn on Sean Dyche after this latet debacle in London, which could result in an easy decision being made on him being sacked.

The heavily beleaguered manager came out after the game and admitted in his damning statement that his players simply did not work hard enough and allowed Chelsea to play through them.

A subdued Toffees’ James Tarkowski even came forward after the match admitting he was embarrassed, that it was evidently not what fans want in the middle of a relegation battle.

The huge game against Nottingham Forest at Goodison Park is next on the agenda with Dyche’s fate dangling precariously on a thread and if it results in a defeat. It is already a given that the fans will turn up in droves for the Forest game to create an atmosphere unlike anywhere else.

If the besotted Toffees boss and his players still can’t get themselves up for that then the the wrath of the mob will be directed solely at Dyche, who could then be packing his backs by this time next week if things go south.
