Re: Garth Crooks - next one in line to drive the narrative
While Crooks is generally a pillock, I don't disagree with much of that. They were bad tackles, Pickford should have been red carded, and there should be questions asked about why it wasn't a red at the time. I'd want those questioned asked if it was one of our players.
In further defence of Crooks, I think he also states that there should be no retrospective ban.
"While I understand Liverpool's desire to have the incidents investigated, there was no question that the goal could ever have been reinstated or all three points awarded to the Reds. Such a decision would have been catastrophic and signalled the end of the world was nigh! Neither should Pickford have been sent off retrospectively. How could that have been justified when he wasn't even booked?"
a few quotes from his piece on BBC
Thiago Alcantara: What was Jordan Pickford doing on the field? The tackle on Virgil van Dijk was so villainous it should have come with a government health warning! The same was true of the tackle by Richarlison on Thiago Alcantara
What did become almost immediately apparent was that both sides had very ordinary goalkeepers.
Liverpool's request to the Premier League to investigate the video assistant referee (VAR) decisions during their draw at Everton was totally justifiable.
Whether you thought Liverpool were worthy of the victory or not, Jordan Henderson's injury-time goal should have stood on the basis that the offside decision was indistinguishable to the naked eye on the camera.
