Referee) (to linesman) Have you checked for rings?

Linesman)(pointing) Over there ref.

Referee) (not best pleased) I said rings not Ings.

Linesman) Sorry ref I though you said Mings (points at bench).

I tell you what, checking rings before kick-off would be interesting. You'd hope they'd do it in the changing room but it would make for 'interesting' TV if they were to do it when they all line up before the match. A quick 'turn round and drop your shorts lads' as the ref walked the line-up would work. Perhaps with a special guest to accompany them. I think our very own HRH the future king may be interested in doing comparisons.

Digne is not a child.  He knows the rules so why does he think they don't apply to him?  Maybe a a fine of a week's wages will focus his mind a bit more.

Pre-match protocol would go something like this: Referee or Linesman would enter the dressing rooms, inspect the footwear of all players and then say something along the lines of: Gentlemen please ensure all jewelry is removed and rings taped up.  The fact that Digne didn't remove his shows that he and the referee/linesman was derelict in their duty.
Of course you're right, but it truly shouldn't be necessary at this level. I blame the player entirely.

Like the scenario Drum.  It is the Carry On scene that never was.  They did the Lift Kilts scene instead.

USE YOUR RIGHT FOOT YOU LEFT FOOTED DIV!

I've always had a thing about how bad left footed players right feet are, lazy bastards.

Having played for Everton previously, they certainly knew how to take advantage of his weaknesses today. A worrying defensive performance for me.

I said to my son look at the benefit when you can use both feet for the (Ings goal)


Watkins ( Who I thought looked lively)  had an opportunity to go through but went to his favoured right in to trouble rather

How did that little knob get away with 3 shirt pulls and a hack without a booking first half!

Digne stated slowly last season and by May was very good,  hoping he'll get up to speed soon

It seems to be in all Digne's contracts that he has to score an own goal in this fixture. He scored one for us last season.

Needs to step up today vs Palace if not then perhaps he'll have to be benched for Augustinsson or Young next time.
But I have faith LD bounce back and he must make his attacking play and crosses tell today as he has a quality left foot.

Nah, he'll never be dropped. He was the manager's first big signing and he's one of the top earners with little in the way of competition for his place.
