General Weekend/Midweek Football

Recommended Posts

Agreed C.

 

When I saw it first I thought that it was a clear penalty but in slow motion its an obvious dive, I like that fact though, for all Suarez dived he ends up losing the game to just that. I thought Valencia was poor in that situation too, he should have pulled the trigger earlier.

 

Perfect result for me, Man United going above us dosen't really bother me, I'd rather see Liverpool down there because it makes it all the more easier to finish above them.

I'd rather liverpoo finished 3rd and us 4th to us finishing 5th and them much lower. I'm an Evertonian, them doing poor is a bonus but I want us to be as high as possible at every point throughout the season regardless of their plight.

When the pen got analysed at the end of the game it showed Valencia gets a little contact on the foot so wobbles his leg. Right call imo.

The RvP challenge was nowhere near as bad as Shelvey's, the ref got both decisions spot on. RvP's wouldn't even be a talking point from any other fans.

Watch it in real time, the agressor is Shelvey. Evans is protecting himself.

 

By going in two footed as opposed to trying to take his foot away? It was either a red for both or neither, bud.

From the picture you can clearly see Shelvey going over the ball with two feet whilst Evans takes the ball. In real time it even emphasises the aggression that he showed. I find it surprising that people are even debating the sending off tbh.

Shelvey had lost control and leaps in, Evans reacts instinctively to protect himself. Don't know anyone can defend Shelvey.

I'm with Xavier, Evans should have gone as well if that's the letter of the law. Evans has no control with both feet forward, whereas Shelvey only leads with one.

 

I'd argue Evans was jumping in and Shelvey was lunging. The former having less control and more dangerous.

 

Stupid decision.

It's Evans ball. If Shelvey was close enough to make a fair challenge they'd be an argument, but he's lost the ball, it's miles from him so he's lunged in like an idiot. A better player would have stayed on their feet an excepted they had lost the ball.

Peter, that's not defending your self, jumping in two footed. Defending yourself is turning away and putting your hands or something in the way. Not the bottom of your studs.

It's instinctive, Shelvey has flew at him unexpectedly. I don't get your point, Evans has reacted naturally, if Shelvey had tried to punch him Evans would have raised his arms, but he's gone for his legs so Evans has moved his legs.

Or like Bily, you'd be pissed off if your players weren't challenging for every ball. I'd want them to go for everything, just stick within the laws. Shelvey had a chance to win that ball, he tried, Evans went to win it back but a lot harder than he probably should have.

 

I'll see it again later but you just can't jump into a challenging, of the ground, two footed. Full stop.

My point is, jumping two footed into a challenging Is NOT defending yourself. Ever.

 

I hope I'm not the only one who doesn't jump into challenges two footed 'to protect' myself.

Fellaini done it against Kyrgiakos. If you're in danger and can't avoid it, there is little else you can do.

He could have just jumped up? Fellaini wouldn't have needed an operation if he did. He could easily have had a red handed to him too back then.

You have a split second to react. Your protective instincts react to the situation, if you had time to think you'd jump, but you don't get that luxury.

Just watched the YouTube clip and Evans has jumped in just as much - I think the only defence the ref has is Evans has jumped at the ball but it looks like shelvey has jumped at Evans because of the scissors movement. Must admit I didn't notice this when watching it live.

Agree....looks like Evans is trying to direct the ball away from Shelvey while Shelvey is jumping at the man.

Looks like posting the vid has gone against you Pete :lol: only messing!

 

But seriously, I think you need to ask yourself, if that was Everton (Shelvey was Pienaar for example) would you be saying the same about Evans protecting himself? I'm not so sure.

No doubt Shelvey shoul have a red, but Evans should also have a red. Or atleast a yellow. Evans first in, and on the ball. But he presented both feet to the situation. Shelveys challenge was awfull, both feet, higher than the ball and a scissor on Evans. Instant and correct red card.

I've flipped on my own mates during a game for doing it. I've seen legs broken by them as well. You can understand at amateur level, but a pro should know better as it's nowhere near 50-50.

The only Everton player I can think of who has done similar is Pienaar and I moan about him all the time.

Quality Avin!!!

 

I bet he wishes this thread was as quiet as it was yesterday!!!

 

 

 

Everybody's playing today!

I left you to wank over your wit y'day, but it seems you can't leave it... as I have (shockingly I know, but you don't pick up on subtlety. So I'm not surprised), look back at our last disagreements and then wipe the smeg off your face. You're a grown man, look past a user name and take part in the discussions.

I dream of 'yer ma' and a packet of melty Maltesers. shaking fist.pngleggit.gif

 

Dream you may, but you'd be much too old for her - if she's gonna have a fling she'd at least look for a bit of fun, someone with a bit of lead still on their pencil! Saying this though, she is very partial to a malteaser! ;)

Man City 2 - 4 Villa. Imagine getting beat by Aston Villa ohmy.png aha

 

Suddenly we don't want results like that....need a top four finisher to win the Donald Duck Cup (I've never thought it was a Mickey Mouse Cuptongue.png ) to open up sixth place as a Europa spot.

Don't worry we'll do it through the league. Its the hard way or nothing, we're Everton after all happy.png .

How do we have 'This weekend's Footy' on a Tuesday? dont%20know.gif

Extended weekend. James Vaughan scored on Monday night and now we've followed through to Tuesdays football. I might even pop in this thread tomorrow and carry on the football bender.

I think the author meant 'present time soccer action'

 

I.e. 'Football' that is played on any given day of the week. It started off as after weekend action and carried on into weekday fixtures. For the benefit of this, I don't know any other results from Mickey Mouse this night, and to be truthful, not all that interested.

shouldve been off for that 1 tackle...

He's let a lot go tbf, both teams kicking shite out of each other so at least he's consistent. Other than Wisdom's yellow, he won the ball imo.

 

Lukaku has been playing well, reminds me of Anichebe, but with a bit more to him. Wouldn't mind him at Everton.
