Pundit can't believe 'shambolic' footage at Everton - 'there's no coming back'
Noel Whelan has claimed there is most likely “no coming back” for Frank Lampard at Everton after fans “turned” on him at Bournemouth on Saturday (12 November).
The former Leeds striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted supporters “had every right” to vent their frustrations following the 3-0 loss on the south coast.
As seen in footage from Sky Sports, Lampard and the Everton players approached the away end at Dean Court to apologise for their display but were met with an angry reaction.
However, Football Insider revealed on Tuesday (15 November) that the Merseysiders have decided to stand by Lampard and give him time to turn their season around.
It is understood that the Everton hierarchy even considered an approach for out-of-work manager Marcelo Bielsa before sticking with the ex-Chelsea boss.
Lampard’s side have lost seven of their 15 Premier League outings this term – including three defeats in their last five games.

Whelan lamented Everton’s “boring style of play” after a loss which saw the Toffees register 65% of the ball – but just three shots on target.
He told Football Insider’s Ewan Kingsbury: “It was a diabolical performance.
“I’ve talked about Everton and their boring style of play, and there just wasn’t any intent from them against Bournemouth.
“Their style of play must be so infuriating for the fans.
“They’ve travelled all this way and spent good money to watch a shambles of a performance like that.
“They had every right to vent their frustrations at the players and the manager.
“He’s under massive pressure now because the fans have turned. Once they turn, there’s usually no coming back from that.”
