Ok so Holgate wins the ball but then hits the man so it's a foul and he gets a red card.
Lloris gets the ball (apparently) but then takes Richarlison's legs but no foul?


1.) 07 Nov 2021 16:21:03
What’s as bad is that Richy still had the ball so had they played on we would still have been in a good position.

{Ed001's Note - the thing I don't get is why were Spurs given the ball from the restart, when Everton had it??}

2.) 07 Nov 2021 16:38:56
It was laughable Ed. But as Brass is saying what’s the difference?

3.) 07 Nov 2021 17:36:44
The only difference was that the tackle by Holgate would be classed as dangerous due to his studs showing and being so high. Lloris wasn't in the same bracket.
I haven't seen the West Ham game v Liverpool but, from what I can gather, there was a similar incident with no red card. If anyone seen it, was it as bad as some are making out? Was it similar or worse than Holgate's tackle?

4.) 07 Nov 2021 17:58:22
But Holgate won the ball Lloris didn’t.
Creswell tackle same as Holgates. Wasn’t even given as a foul.

5.) 07 Nov 2021 18:45:07
Lloris did touch the ball though Woburn.

6.) 07 Nov 2021 18:50:04
No he didn’t.

7.) 07 Nov 2021 18:58:27
At no point does the ball deviate from its line which shows he got nothing on it. VAR we’re guessing. It’s a very poor decision by a very poor referee. And to compound it he gives them the ball?

8.) 07 Nov 2021 19:03:46
Winning the ball doesn't matter if the ref/ var deem the follow through to be dangerous. I think Lori's got the slightest of touches on the ball to be honest but that wasn't wasn't problem. What happened to playing the phase of play out? Richie had got up and got the ball with the keeper well out of position. Couldn't the ref have played on and let var check during play? Bad decision in my opinion.

9.) 07 Nov 2021 19:27:30
OK Bob, should have gone to specsavers eh? Bluepots is 100% right.

10.) 07 Nov 2021 19:31:19
It clearly moves towards the left Woburn. Local specsavers could have a bumper Monday me thinks. I'm all for being gutted after a much improved performance but I can't make stuff up sorry lads. Fantasy isn't allowed.

11.) 07 Nov 2021 20:48:22
Disagree mate watch it again and watch Richy’ s foot take the ball away from his hand. Anyway doesn’t matter now just another poor decision.

12.) 07 Nov 2021 23:18:03
However, a slo-mo replay shows that Richarlison initially had the ball, and Lloris first caught his boot, rather than the ball.
Taken from Ref watch site, were they analyze all contentious decisions.
Maybe you need to go to Specsavers Brownshoes.



01 Nov 2021 22:59:56
Hope we don't get Wigan in the cup. We are not good against teams starting with a W.


{Ed0666's Note - you could have stopped at ‘teams’ brassington ???

1.) 01 Nov 2021 23:02:57
666 is apt ?.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m only joshing with you mate. It honestly doesent give me any pleasure to see Everton and Rafa not do well. I hope you can spend some money in January and finish a respectable 14th in the table. No seriously I would love to see Everton mount a title challenge how good would that be for English football.

2.) 02 Nov 2021 00:34:34
Ed 666 methinks you are enjoying yourself a little to much over our misery. ?.

{Ed0666's Note - no mate not at all. I have no pleasure taking pleasure in your pathos. Believe me when I say I’d love Everton to be successful under Rafa. I have such a high opinion of the man and respect him wholeheartedly.



07 Sep 2021 19:03:40
So James goes on a little holiday which now means he has to isolate again. Guy is taking the p. out of the club big time.
Can't now train with the first team, and will miss the next two games.
get rid of this freeloader, and before you all come out saying how wonderful he is, and but he's our best player. No he isn't. To be our best player he has to be committed to the team and the club.
This guy is a joke, is it any wonder absolutely nobody came in for him. Oh no wait Newcastle thought about it apparently. says it all really.


{Ed025's Note - i have to say brass its hard to disagree with you mate..

1.) 07 Sep 2021 19:24:43
What a waste of a player, I should hope we are not paying him.

{Ed025's Note - we will be though ant..

2.) 07 Sep 2021 19:56:45
Well if the club allowed him to go to Ibiza its the clubs fault. If James went without permission and will now miss two games why can't the club fine him?

3.) 07 Sep 2021 20:00:06
Is it not the clubs fault as well, why on earth would they allow him to go? maybe he is entitled to go on holiday
Do any of us really know what's going on with him, it has all been a bit strange since he has been here.

4.) 07 Sep 2021 23:34:35
Echo reporting he’s back in training tomorrow.
Assuming he’s jabbed, he won’t need to self isolate.

5.) 08 Sep 2021 00:21:54
I'm not to sure, how high the bar is in relation to misconduct, but for me, he must be near the point where his contract might be cancelled, I don't know if this is possible, but hope the club are looking at that solution to this man's behaviour.

6.) 08 Sep 2021 03:19:52
This whole saga appears to have been handled badly and we are all guilty of having opinions not knowing all the facts

We know James has been told to find another club but was he sat down and told

James - we are in a mess due to FFP regulations and need to reduce the wage bill and we'd appreciate it if you helped us by finding another club

or was it

James - F O Find another club. We don't want you

Why did it get out to the press? Did Rafa want to be seen as the Big Man or did someone else at Everton leak it to attract possible suitors. Maybe James team leaked it for their own purposes

We simply don't know but relations between James and Rafa/ the club seem to be strained

Now we have 2 totally different stories about James being not available for next couple of games or he is returning to training today. Who knows which, if any, are true and they are both on the Goodison News website so even they don't know what is happening.

7.) 08 Sep 2021 09:05:55
I hope he goes yes he is quality but at the end of the day am sick of players coming in an not fighting for the badge. He is a perfect example happy to take massive wages and give very little back. If the columbian national team has knocked him back then obv he is a liability. Rafa has us on the right path imo so if he thinks he isn't the player for us he isn't good riddance.

8.) 08 Sep 2021 15:51:45
He obviously went on a holiday with the blessing of the club or we'd be hearing about a massive fine for him. A lot of us seem to have the claws out for James right now, rightly or wrongly, but let's get all the facts out before condemning anyone.
Is Ibiza on the red list? Has James had his jabs? Does he need to isolate or can he just get straight back to training? We all know that the club has told him that he is surplus to requirements, if he isn't in Rafa's plans then he won't be anywhere near the squad anyway.

{Ed025's Note - it just doesn,t sit right with me BP, his commitment and fitness has been in question since the start for me, he came here for a pay day as far as im concerned and even though his ability has never been in doubt his willingness to give his all certainly has, i cant wait to see the back of him if im honest mate..

9.) 08 Sep 2021 18:39:58
Could not agree more Ed. Literally cannot wait until he is out of our football club. Fairly sure finch farm hasn't been closed during the international break, and if the guy had any interest in playing football for Everton he'd have been training rather than sitting on a yacht smoking that electric bifter.

10.) 08 Sep 2021 23:14:45
BP. Why on earth would the club agree to him going on hol, he has not been on intl duty over the summer, we have jp, dcl who have been euro final, ricky olympic final yet they are here playing. James is a joke of a player. In this league u have to be tough and move quick, without these 2 qualities you can have all the technical ability in the world but you will not make it.

He knows he is not going to get a glam move so will take us for every penny. I am hoping we have breach of contract clauses in there and he hits one.

{Ed002's Note - The situation is contractually difficult.}

11.) 08 Sep 2021 23:55:16
Clearly ed. I have no idea how contracts work and i might sound stupid but surley surley no club would have a contract that will allow a player to just take a holiday mid season?

{Ed002's Note - No, his contract won't make provision for that.}

12.) 09 Sep 2021 10:05:51
Toffeeblue, it's not entirely unheard of that players are allowed to go on a little jaunt during international week. I'm guessing he's gone with permission from the club as I've seen no reports that anyone at EFC is unhappy with him being away or that he is getting fined.
I understand that, ed025. I was just pointing out that the club are involved in this decision too so it was wrong to blame just one party. Especially when it appears that we only have half of the story.



31 Aug 2021 17:24:55
Sorry just can't get excited by the idea of signing a 31 year old who has a goal 1 in 4 strike rate.
Agree we need a back up for DCL, but feel we should be doing better than this.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 17:28:09
Not many who are better want to come and sit in the bench whilst Dom starts every game.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 17:40:12
The joys of being an Everton fan.
Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs, West Ham, Wolves, Aston Villa, Leicester, Leeds and Arsenal (struggling so far) have better teams. Richie will not be a happy boy 😄.

{Ed025's Note - but we have the new "dogs of war" pauly, and will give them all a game mate..

3.) 31 Aug 2021 17:41:28
I don't want a guy who is happy to sit on the bench. I want a guy who is looking to challenge DCL for the starter position.
That's the trouble with this club, we have players who turn up happy to park there arse on the bench while picking up a nice wedge.

4.) 31 Aug 2021 17:56:58
Sorry Ed025, after several years of dross I was really hoping this season would deliver some excitement but Rafa will struggle with our waferthin squad and that's a shame. He deserves better!

{Ed025's Note - dont write us off just yet pauly, guts, determination and fight will get you a long way in this league mate, and we have some very good players as well, this is a season of consolidation considering our finances but i have to say im enjoying it at the moment...long may that continue..

5.) 31 Aug 2021 17:57:37
Not any more mate.

6.) 31 Aug 2021 18:01:14
I don't think we can afford any of them though brass.

7.) 31 Aug 2021 18:01:20
We can’t afford that guy at the moment mate. That’s why we’re signing Rondon.

8.) 31 Aug 2021 18:04:39
I hope you're right Ed, as we are going to need them.

{Ed025's Note - i feel there is more about us than there has been for a long while pauly, im not claiming we are brilliant or even a threat to the top 4, but what i see is players with pride who want to be here mate...and that excites me..

9.) 31 Aug 2021 19:05:38
JB Jebbison going out on loan. Could we not have made a better loan deal?

10.) 31 Aug 2021 19:07:34
I know what your saying Ed, but a couple of injuries/ bans and we will struggle big time.

{Ed025's Note - i get that woburn mate but hopefully the back up squad will step up to the plate, rafa seems to be getting a tune out of the first team so why not..

11.) 31 Aug 2021 19:41:45
One word; Huddersfield.

{Ed025's Note - we beat them mate..



27 Aug 2021 12:32:13
"Neymar pushes for Everton transfer"
Got a bit excited when I first saw that. Then I read the article. 🤪.


1.) 27 Aug 2021 17:39:55
We can go for greenwood or rashford now Ronaldo is there.

2.) 27 Aug 2021 18:39:50
We could Charlie and probably end up with Lingard or Martial.

Oh the arrogance of football supporters. Of course he would want to go to Spurs, I mean it has to be better than little old Everton. What bollocks, he's leaving Juve because they don't want him, and he will go to the team that makes him the best offer.

Agree Dan, at least he didn't go running off to one of the top teams and sit on their bench. To be fair to the lad I think he sees Southampton as a stepping stone to better things.
We shall see.

We all have a right to voice our opinion, whether that's on here or at the game. It's all about personal opinion, and if I see something I am not happy with then I will have an opinion on it. That is what sites like this are for, to have a debate. So if you don't like reading about people's views good or bad, then don't log on. And as i'm an old bugger I won't be jogging anywhere mate.
