Ex-Everton Star Calls for Managerial Change Amidst Club Struggles

Former defender Alan Stubbs has voiced concerns over the future of the club under manager Sean Dyche, suggesting that “something’s got to change.”

Stubbs, who has been vocal about Everton’s recent struggles, took to social media during the match to highlight what he perceived as deficiencies in the team’s performance, particularly their lack of defensive solidity. When questioned about Dyche’s suitability to continue leading the Toffees, Stubbs emphasized the necessity for a change in direction.

In a statement shared on his personal social media account, Stubbs remarked, “Not sure if it’s too late now but something’s got to change on the pitch for sure (and off it also) as we seem well off it and devoid of ideas, direction and belief!”

Despite the draw being against a Newcastle side vying for European qualification, Everton’s display was widely criticized for its lack of cohesion and attacking impetus. The club’s inability to secure a victory extended their winless streak in the Premier League to an unfortunate 13 games, including seven defeats, marking a new unwanted record for the Toffees.

The mounting pressure on Dyche and Everton’s faltering form have sparked discussions among fans and pundits alike, with many echoing Stubbs’ sentiments for a change in leadership as the club seeks to revive its season.
