Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
You’ve probably read it all before, but here’s where Frank Lampard is going wrong at Everton. [RBM]
Early on Wednesday Everton had reportedly seen a loan offer for Danny Ings rejected by Aston Villa. [Birmingham Live]
During his post match comments, Unai Emery commented on the potential move:
“I spoke with some players about the opportunity to leave but not with him. Today I think the first player who leaves is Cameron Archer but I didn’t speak to Danny about it. The idea is to keep him in the squad.” [Birmingham Live]

Croatian journo Ižak Ante Sučić is reporting that the Mislav Orsic transfer to Southampton is off and Everton are ready to make a move for the winger. The left winger appeared in six of Croatia’s seven games at the just-ended World Cup, and scored the winner against Morocco in the third-place game. What’s the catch you ask? He’s 30.

As per our sources, Mislav Orsic and @SouthamptonFC - deal is off! It looks like their 2nd offer was also way too low. Right now, it looks like @Everton could 'hijack' this deal! @NFFC is also interested!

Alan Stubbs has been commenting on the current situation at the club:
“Frank Lampard has to take a huge part of the responsibility but the board needs to take a lot of the criticism, even more so than Frank. He has come in and he has to deal with the failings of previous managers that the board brought in.
“Unfortunately, sacking managers is the easy way out and I hope they give him a bit more time and a bit of the window.” [BBC Five Live]
