Other games (2021/22)

I see Dermot Gallagher has been talking more shit today about the Elliot injury/red:

 

“When you see that challenge from behind. The law says: does he endanger the safety of the opponent. Well, the outcome would certainly say yes. Did he mean to? Most certainly not. And that's the balance here and the dilemma the referee had. I think the referee has a very difficult job not to give a red card when you see the extent of the injury."

 

If that’s the case, any tackle endangers the safety of an opponent. May as well give everyone a red card because any tackle could be problematic.


What about head injuries as one player heads the back of another, is that a red? It endangers their safety. Remember Diaby booting Terry square in the head during the League Cup final and knocking him out? :lol: Accidents happen in football, it’s a contact sport ffs.

 

He doesn’t endanger anyone with that well timed tackle. It’s an unfortunate accident where Elliot’s foot gets stuck in an awkward position as he himself challenges for the ball.

 

He also claims the fourth official told the ref to give a foul, and the on field officials decided a red was needed between them. :lol: Absolute bollocks.

Has Rafa been playing the 5 at the back formation for Everton all the time this season? Or is it just because DCL is out?

 

We were so fluid against Burnley when we played them with 5 at the back with Ki having one of his best games for us

No he hasn't. I believe he's done it to counter Burnley's direct approach to the two lumps upfront, so he likely wants another centre back in there.

Rafa's gone with the wrong shape like. They've backed off too far, they're playing long balls to Richarlison who isn't a number nine, and they can't get up to press. Without Calvert-Lewin they should have stuck with the back four.

Truly abysmal game. Gary Neville was rubbing one out about this being the greatest Premier League era at the weekend. Polish this one up, Gary. 
 

Only entertaining bit is watching Allan turning into Cattermole. Looking busy while doing not a lot, shorts pulled up to his bristol cities and just keeps giving the ball away.

Mad that Aaron Lennon has been at Burnley four seasons now, also didn’t know he was on loan in Turkey last year.

 

What a total anticlimax his career has been.

 

He went to Turkey permanently
