Everton owner Farhad Moshiri was last seen at Goodison Park in October 2021; With bottom-of-the-table Southampton next up followed by a trip to West Ham a week later, Sky Sports News reporter Alan Myers says it is time for the club’s board to break their silence
As Everton’s winless run extended to eight games following the FA Cup third-round exit at the hands of Manchester United, manager Frank Lampard strode onto the pitch at Old Trafford and marched towards the 9,500 travelling supporters.

Ending Everton’s 28-year wait for a trophy was not his top priority this year. The Merseyside club are again hovering just above the relegation zone.
With bottom-of-the-table Southampton next up at Goodison Park on Saturday followed by a trip to West Ham a week later, Sky Sports News reporter Alan Myers sums up the mood heading into a defining period for the club…
