*Shakes head* Everton again.

Recommended Posts

He goes from 0 to 100 in a spilt second, he's no Luis Suarez, there is no way he has the cunningness to invent a situation in a spilt second. The most probable scenario is what the mirror are reporting, he thought he heard something, he reacted but now realises he heard wrong. That should be the end of it unless they want to look into the push.

I hope this is it. I feel for Holgate. He's going to get bellends throwing all sorts at him now like Adeyemi and Evra did.

I think it's pretty obvious Firmino has said something racist. Holgate doesn't grab the referee like that if it's something innocuous.

Get to fuck

Isnt the ref mic'd up to the Linesman/fourth official anyway.  Surely because of how close he was to the incident it woould have come through their earpieces as well

Rubbish. You can clearly see what he says on youtube.

 

Holgate reacts to deflect attention from his push and to attempt to get Firminho sent off.

From the video I've seen there's about a second where Firmino's face is covered by an Everton player immediately before Holgate reacts. It's probably a long enough second for Firmino to say one bad word but seems unlikely given that at Firmino's angriest point he's quite content to "just" call him loco puta.

However the club / Klopp's "no comment" stance tonight concerns me a little, if he deffo didn't say anything why not come out and make that clear? Of course we've been stung before so maybe it's a case of playing it safe until the dust settles. Not ideal for Firmino though if he's done nothing wrong having to sit tight while people chat shit about him.

The important thing to focus on is that - like Evra and Adeyemi- he was clearly not racially abused.

The fact this was not on Sky will help, they don't like highlighting competitions they have no coverage of. If they had pictures Firmino would probably be looking at a custodial sentence if he was lucky.

Sky sports news are mentioning the incident, saying Holgate was only kicking off because Firmino said somthing to him.

 

But they aren't even acknowledging the push that happened right before.

It's like this in the Guardian. Absolutely mentalist writing which in no way depicts what actually happened:

 

"At first sight it seemed ludicrous that Holgate should make his second misjudgment of the evening by deliberately shoving Roberto Firmino over the perimeter fence into the crowd and get away with it, though the Everton player lost his head to such an extent that it appeared likely he had been verbally abused or provoked. There was no other explanation for such a blatant transgression under the nose of the referee, and the fact that Robert Madley failed to produce a card – not to mention the amount of time he spent talking to the fourth official and discussing the matter behind his hand with various interested parties on the pitch – suggested this was a complex incident that even VAR might not have been able to clear up. Whatever the provocation, Holgate was lucky to get away with using his hands again so soon after conceding the penalty"

Both were racially abused. Don't embarrass yourself.

Really? We’re doing this again?

The matter was settled. Liverpool fans continue to make themselves the laughing stock of the league by defending it or implying it didn't happen.

Nah, they weren't.  Tom Adeyemi misheard something.  He was called a Manc Bastard, that was proven.

 

You're just being a prick.

Maddock said it seemed to be cleared up at halftime some sort of misunderstanding and was resolved with the Everton backroom staff. Seems a bit off to suggest Holgate is playing the racecard due to the fact he may have misheard.

 

Pretty shit to see lots of opposing supporters lining up to try and score points and a bit shit of some of ours laying into Holgate.

Right, I’m nobody but I just want to say, can we please play nicely? We’re fellow reds and we just beat Everton. It’s a good day.

 

I don’t know what’s been said about the Firmino incident, as I’ve been out since the match ended. At first glance this is how it looked to me:

 

Player pushes Firmino over the advertising hoardings into the crowd (disgracefully not booked, it must be said. What more does the ref need to see?)

Firmino is then annoyed and reacts. He squares up to Holgate and to my eyes it looked like he called him a son of a whore in Portuguese - I think it was similar to what Mourinho called that doctor for treating a Chelsea player and not joining in with his cheating.

Anyhow, Firmino definitely gives Holgate an earful, but then the Everton lad goes ballistic.

My best guess is he misunderstood what Firmino said and interpreted it as a racial slur.

 

Don’t know how accurate that is,, but that’s what it looked like to me. Hopefully things get cleared up and the accusation of something altogether more nasty is nipped in the bud.

 

To my eyes it was an example of what can happen when a referee fails to punish a player for a clear wrong. Had the ref pulled Holgate over to lecture him and book him, perhaps Firmino’s fire might have been assuaged somewhat. But since the ref did nothing, Firmino (perhaps foolishly in his part, but also understandably to be fair) had a reaction.

 

That’s my take on it, but beyond that, let’s not fight among ourselves!

 

It’s a good day. Everton are out and we are through.

how about we stop with the mud slinging, name calling and alleging any racial slurs, none of us know what was said, we are all guessing. until such time that a kangaroo court is put together with fergie as the judge jury and executioner then all is fine.

Try some facts.

 

Read the FA report into the Suarez/Evra incident. It is screamingly obvious that Evra wasn't racially abused. Only an organisation as dishonest and inept as the FA could reach any other conclusion

 

 

As for Adeyemi, the prosecutor issued a statement saying that she'd dropped the case because she'd heard an audio recording of the incident which clearly proved he was called a Manchester bastard.

The FA called him racist and that's good enough for me!

8,000 of them, hardly heard them and what a vanishing act on the final whistle and couldn't find one all night after it. The SAS would be proud of that kind of stealth.

    • They do realise we aren't likely to play the U12's this time aren't they ?
    • Fuck me Carragher should pull his trousers up.  He talks some absolute fucking nonsense.
    • Offal Report   Jake Cain’s superb stoppage-time strike earned Liverpool U23s a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.   A strong young Reds team spent the majority of the Premier League 2 fixture at a blustery St George’s Park on top, and merited the lead given to them by Joe Hardy’s goal shortly before the hour.   However, having levelled through Chem Campbell’s 72nd-minute penalty against the run of play, Wolves threatened to snatch all three points as they applied pressure on the goal of Vitezslav Jaros, who made his first start of the season following an elbow injury.    But Cain, one of a number of Neil Critchley’s regulars making the return to U23s football following their FA Cup heroics, showcased his technical ability by half-volleying in a late, late winner from 20 yards.   Liverpool made a purposeful start and a sharp one-two with Harvey Elliott earned Curtis Jones a sight of goal inside the first two minutes, only for the captain to scuff his shot wide.   A clear-cut chance arrived soon after for the visitors, with a sliding Leighton Clarkson unable to make the required contact on Neco Williams’ inviting low cross at the back post.    Another slick move ended with Tony Gallacher over-running the ball after he’d collected Pedro Chirivella’s clever pass and strode into the penalty area, before Hardy dragged wide from Elliott’s cushioned chested knock-down.   There was no let-up in tempo or intent from the young Reds, who continued pushing for the elusive opening goal.     Indeed, only the woodwork denied Jones what would have been a fine opener eight minutes before the break.   Chirivella arced a brilliant long-range pass into the skipper who, from an acute angle, clipped a delicate effort past Wolves goalkeeper Andreas Sondergaard that kissed the far post and rebounded to safety.   Elliott twice tested Sondergaard from outside the area - first from open play, then via a free-kick - prior to Liverpool finally, and deservedly, going ahead through Hardy.   Jones fed the onrushing Gallacher down the left and the full-back whipped in a cross that Hardy, on the slide, diverted home at the far post.   It was role reversal soon after as Gallacher found Jones’ surge down the left. The captain’s persistence enabled him to wriggle free of Owen Otasowie and Raphael Nya, before he curled a shot towards the top corner that Sondergaard tipped wide.    The pattern of the match indicated that the game’s second goal would be Liverpool’s too, but Wolves equalised out of nothing 18 minutes from time.   Sepp van den Berg was penalised when Renat Dadashov went down once he’d forced the defender to back into his penalty area, and Campbell duly converted the resulting spot kick.    Buoyed, Wolves then chased a winner, with Jaros parrying Terry Taylor’s powerful drive away and Dadashov hitting the post from a tight angle.    Cain would have the final say, though, the Liverpool midfielder chesting down the ball before dispatching a sweetly-struck shot into the corner.   Liverpool U23s: Jaros, Williams, Hoever, Van den Berg, Gallacher, Chirivella (Dixon-Bonner, 83), Clarkson, Cain, Elliott, Jones, Hardy (Millar, 68). Unused substitutes: Winterbottom, Boyes, Bearne.
