Weíve lost a game and will pretty much come out of this weekend in exactly the same spot as it started. Our game in hand send us top. We must bounce back next week. At minimum a a point.

Everton red card - Digne

Looked like he was surfing on his ankle.

It looked to me like he had two pops at him to make sure.

It was a disgraceful, disgusting challenge. Itís a shame you canít sent someone off twice for things like that.
Yet Alan Smith said it wasnít that bad. He got a few other things wrong in the game also.
Smith is becoming a really shit commentator.

It was interesting in that my biggest criticism of Smith is that he doesn't know how to change formation/tactics in game when things are going against us. And in this game one of the best managers in the world did nothing to try and change the way Everton were playing apart from like for like substitutions.

To be fair that was a really good game to watch today. Unlike most of the Scottish games I have watched in recent months.

And we saw that with Klopp vs us, Pep vs Leicester.

Lineker tweeted: Running behind someone and accidentally treading on their heel should never be a red. Canít you chase people anymore?

I must be missing something, I thought that was a dirty challenge which could have led to a broken ankle.

I too thought it was a bad challenge but Kieron Dyer and Jamie Redknapp on SKY both reckon it was a yellow card offence. To be fair to the SKY presenter (Dave Jones?) he said it might have been just a yellow card in their day but not these days.

Why is Redknapp defending Digne? Saying the red card should be rescinded.

Marco Van Basten had to retire early because of fouls aimed at his achilles.

Digne knew exactly what he was doing. Born out of frustration, maybe, but no excuses.

I donít think that was a red card at all. Iíd be furious if it happened to us. The players trailing football was already a long way behind in his stride when he got caught. And the way he got caught made it look significantly worse than it was. I donít think he caught up and ran his studs down his Achilles. A yellow? Absolutely. Never a red for me.

If someone fouled Jack like that I would be screaming at the ref to get out the red card.

The build up to Wolves v Newcastle on SKY. I think it is fair to say that former Newcastle player Kieron Dyer is not a big fan of Steve Bruce's style of football.
