if you look at the replay, none of the Liverpool players are upset at the challenge
They are appealing for the penalty - if they thought it was a challenge done with intent to hurt they would have been 1/ looking to push Pickford 2/ been in the refs face
Look at their reaction when Richarlison did Thiago
Obviously we all had the same view of Pickford's challenge but it was only when we saw the view from behind the goal that it looked bad
As Rob Green said, it was a typical keeper's challenge of 1/ trying to make himself big 2/ smother the ball 3/ protect himself from injury
Is a goalie. He did what any good goalie would do in that situation He charged the ball and made himself big. VVD was also at full stretch trying to turn the ball towards goal. They collided. Either one of them could have been hurt .Ask Peter Cech. If Pickford had stay rooted to the spot and VVD had scored Everton fans and the pundits would have been giving him loads on social media. He did what good brave goalies do
He has nothing to apologise for
people have any rights to do anything that might not suit the narcissists' agenda, its whining, its accusations of media bias, of conspiracy by the people entrusted to rule on matters of dispute, its grandiose attention-sucking and self-pity, its awful red-orange hue, its appeal to the emotional parts of the brains of people who really should know better, its desire to deflect from its own real crimes by pointing at the minor imperfections of its opponents, its inflammatory rhetoric and incitements to violence, its inability to understand itself as anything except the beloved centre of attention, and its aspiration to reward the already-rich, the already-powerful, and the already-media-beloved with even more power, money, and attention.
They can #### right off. Pickford deserves and needs support from the club and all associated with it, and I hope the authorities will have a word with Liverpool regarding their player and manager's comments tonight in Amsterdam.
