That was a stonewall penalty, Richarlison's shirt was on the verge of being ripped off his back
blue-tinted specs aside, I honestly don't think that should have been a tough call to make, especially with the benefit of VAR.
We didn't perform anywhere near the standard we need to be at but we were ####ed over there.
Think the issue was more that had VAR checked the penalty claim seconds before the situation wouldn't have arisen
What an atmosphere to start. We bossed it and I genuinely thought we’d do them 2 or 3 nil.
The sending off was probably the most massive footballing deflation I’ve experienced following Everton.
The fans did try, but you could see the ‘This is ###in typical of Everton!!’ expressions, especially on older Blues fans’ faces.
Once they equalized, we felt it was just a matter of time before they went in front.
They were patient, organised and Eriksen ran the show.
We left very concerned about Thursday. Palace, though below Brentford but with a game in hand, are probably a more dangerous side; nobody wants it to be the Arsenal game that decides it.
Again though - the old ‘league table doesn’t lie’ applies.
If we go down we deserve it. There were quite a few voices slagging the ref off for the first sending off.
We all said straight away it was a clear red. I couldn’t see the Rondon incident, as everyone in Lower Bullens was on their feet and it was out of our view. My son who was in a better position said it appeared to be a another ‘has to go’ for the ref.
Haven’t seen any replays or heard what Frank has said.
We could be ruing that draw against a woeful Watford (or for that matter any number of shoite displays against the ‘lower’ sides this season).
It is still though very much in our own hands.
Will be there on Thursday hoping for a better day’s work.
Going to get on up and fly away
Go on out for another way
And a new day’s dawn
Going to carry on.
