The outlet reported via their website on 17 April that despite calls from fans for the Toffees boss to be relieved of his duties thanks to a “desperate” run form, culminating in the 6-0 “collapse” on Monday night (15 April) away to Chelsea, he is “under no threat” at Goodison Park.

The fact that without two points deductions this season Everton would be eight better off and safe from danger is highlighted as what makes this stance “fair”.

Dyche has overseen a single Premier League win since the start of 2024, a 1-0 win over former side Burnley on 6 April thanks to a fortuitous Dominic Calvert-Lewin goal.

It would certainly be reasonable of the Toffees or Dyche himself to point out that their spot in the table (currently 16th, two points from the bottom three with a game in hand) is arguably a false one when he has recorded eight more points on the pitch this term.

The first deduction of six down from 10 on appeal, and a second two-point sanction that is still subject to appeal, have clearly had an effect on the squad even if it has been dismissed as a reasonable excuse by some.
