Dominic King of The Daily Mail has criticised the Goodison Park administration after Everton suffered a dismal 4-0 preseason loss to Minnesota United.
With two losses on their American tour and only one player joining their ranks, the Toffees have had a dreadful summer thus far.
Due to the circumstances under which Lampard is now operating, King thinks he is not accountable.
On Friday, July 21, King commented, “That outcome was extremely surprising and couldn’t have come at a worse conceivable time,” on talkSPORT Breakfast.
“Frank and his coaching staff have nothing to do with this.

“At the moment, it’s impossible, like trying to build anything with rough tools.
He needs reinforcements badly, and a 4-0 loss in Minnesota would infuriate already irate and dissatisfied supporters even more.
Everton and Lampard are going through some extremely troubling circumstances right now, so it’s not all that shocking that they lost 4-0 in the US.
The Toffees weren’t a strong team at the end of the previous campaign, and losing their greatest player and failing to find a replacement would only make them weaker.
Although James Tarkowski appears to be a nice addition, the Toffees are still far from where they need to be in preparation for the 2022–23 Premier League season.
Evertonians’ worries are fully warranted at the moment, since Lampard’s preseason preparations are being seriously hampered by the lack of transfer activity.
Something needs to change at Goodison Park right away, whether it is a lack of resources or poor negotiations on the part of the club management.
Everton’s negotiations with Burnely winger Maxwel Cornet offer a ray of hope, although a deal appears to be far off.
Everton must currently be among the favourites to face relegation once more the following year.
The Toffees are well behind in terms of transfer transactions thus far, trailing just Nottingham Forest and Leeds United.
