Everton Twitter message mid-match saying ‘Get Jordan Pickford Rave On’ spectacularly backfires – The replies…
Jordan Pickford was acting himself all game.
The Everton and England (Cough Cough..) goalkeeper trying to wind the Newcastle fans up.
Which is all well and good if you are…any good.
However, simple fact is that Jordan Pickford is vastly overrated and by getting himself so wrapped up in trying to annoy the 50,000 Newcastle fans, it led to a calamitous performance.
Bottom line is, that as supporters our job and only possible input is to wind up opposition players, especially fools such as Pickford.
He forgot what his job is, whether he is a Sunderland fan or not, his task was to stop the ball going into his net, that is how he would really annoy us, not by sticking his tongue out or as embarrassingly did, appearing to tell Newcastle fans he would see themselves outside for a fight as he left the pitch.
Jordan Pickford was easily Everton’s weakest link and should have been red carded, whilst overall he gave his defence no confidence and was suspect on the first goal, badly at fault for the second goal, plus could have helped hand Newcastle a couple more with poor decision making.
Having come back from two down and winning, the pleasure has been experienced in many ways.
However, this is a true classic, the Everton fan site Royal Blue Mersey putting this message up on Twitter mid-match when everything was going theirs and Jordan Pickford’s way…
‘Jordan Pickford really does not like Newcastle.
– tried to kill Salomon Rondon
– saved a penalty
– mean mugged the crowd
– denied Perez basically 1-on-1
Get the rave on.’
‘That tweet hasn’t aged well.’
‘Aye, the rave is on alright!’
‘The rat should have seen red for his challenge on Rondon…thankfully Lee Mason fu..ed up and bottled it so the overrated SMB was on the pitch to concede 3!’
‘Then gave us the game.’
‘And then what …… 3pts for the Toon.’
‘Oh dear if ever there was a premature tweet this one is it!’
‘He’s welcome to play for any side we are up against.
Worst keeping performance at St James since Mike Hooper.’
‘You missed straining his back picking the ball out the net 3 times.’
‘Was use saying this during the world cup?’
‘I was aye. He’s sh..’
‘He is far from shi..,had a bad season so far will not disagree with that.
Its like saying salah (ED: Salah has scored 17 goals in 28 PL starts this season!) is not world class because his season has been pi.. poor.
This season he has played like a poor mans robben but still a very good player.’
‘Pickford can be a decent shot-stopper but apart from that I just see an average keeper overhyped because he’s English.
I suspect if he wasn’t a mackem you wouldn’t feel so strongly about this.’
‘He’s bottled it against them today. Utter garbage.’
‘Got the rave on right now sunshine!’
‘Thanks for that tweet. It made me laugh a lot. Xxx’
‘When you pay £30m for a fat bloke from Sunderland…..you deserve everything you get…1 good season FFS…but we know hes a knacka.’
‘I know I’m late to the party here but he’s been shit and cost us the game again.’
‘What was the score? In the second half he was the Toons best Player the short armed SMB.’
‘The only professional goalkeeper in the top 8 divisions worse than Joe Hart.’
‘Played the occasion and got his head messed. Poor.’
‘We’re getting the fu..ing rave on, don’t worry about it!!’
‘Why put these tweets out during the game, you look a right mug now.’
‘Then conceded a soft one to Rondon.
Fumbled Almiron’s shot and conceded to Perez.
Then conceded for a third time.
Ended up on the losing team and got jeered off the pitch. Get the rave on.’
‘Mean mugged the crowd? Of course he did. Haha. Hope you enjoyed the rave.’
‘Yep. I’d really be impressed if our keeper was so wrapped up in what the crowd were shouting at him that he forgot what he was on the pitch to do. Yes, very impressive indeed.’
‘England’s no1, England’s England’s no1.’
‘He’s always welcome at Newcastle, as long as he’s playing for the away team.’
