Much of the post-game analysis after the 3-2 win over Everton on Saturday has centred on Everton goalie Jordan Pickford.
Should Pickford have been sent off against the Magpies? I think that is a 100% YES!
The England international gave away a penalty for a rugby tackle on Rondon.
But Pickford managed to avoid a dismissal, and he subsequently saved Matt Ritchie’s spot-kick.
Of course, the game ended badly for Pickford as he conceded three times in the defeat.
As Everton’s stopper walked off the pitch, he seemed to 'offer out' some Newcastle fans, that was unpleasant viewing.
As they targeted the keeper, Pickford reacted, as he had done the entire match.
I was at Goodison two years ago when Everton won 1-0 and he goaded the Toon Army throughout the game. Especially at the end.
In video which is being shared on social media, Pickford rocked his head from side to side in what many perceived as a ‘come, get some’ gesture towards the Newcastle fans.
It worked for him at Goodison, but suffered BIG TIME on Saturday. A battle he obviously lost.
'He makes too many ricks, he's not an England goalkeeper!' was one comment on TV this weekend, and it was proved right at SJP.
Newcastle fans taunted Jordan Pickford with “He’s only got little arms” and boy did he bite.
