    BTW, Rooney was all alone during the whole play. City defending like 8 year old.

    Probably because they have a ton of players with hilariously low football IQs.

    In the midfield and defense they have what Silva and Kompany who you'd save have good defensive instincts?

    Even Gary Neville said it was a soft 2nd yellow

    I think the second angle shows it's clear he wasn't remotely going for the ball and was just trying to hit the player. He was backing up, took a look, stepped to the side into the player/away from the ball, and then had to turn to get to where the ball was. The shoulder shrug makes it look way worse from the angle opposite of the second look (which is what the ref would have been looking at)

    I agree, but I really don't think he hit the player hard enough for a yellow card.

    Lol straight red. If the ref gave a straight red for that I think Calvert-Lewin would be banned for diving.

    You shouldn't have to hit hard for a card. You shouldn't be hitting out at other players at all. Hope City still manage a draw though. I really like Koeman but I would really like to see Everton fail.

    I would like Everton to get these points. Any points a top four rival loses are good news.

    I think Everton could do well this season. Although I don't see them being higher than 6th or maybe a very outside shot at 5th. I don't see 3 of the top 6 failing hard enough for them to get a CL spot.

    No they won't challenge for top 4, but I could see them finishing ahead of Arsenal potentially if the cards fall right.

    Pep is ridiculous... 200 millions of bench players...except Silva (useless buy for them)

    Everton spent a ton..but Keane + Pickford + Rooney = great buy for them...not sure about Gilfy..

    Ederson looks like a great keeper, but I need to see him save some shots. Passing is exactly what you'd want, good control in the air and aggressive looking to clear the ball.

    Is Mendy available? If so, why is Sane playing LWB?

    He's the big reason why I picked City to win the league this year. Not that he's in the same class as the truly elite keepers, but he's very solid and compared to last year might as well be the reincarnation of Lev Yashin or Peter Schmeichel.

    Sterling. Never change.

    City down to 10, Everton still inviting pressure. Silly.

    United fans who hated Rooney last season must be happy he scored against their rival tbh

    I don't know many who really hated him, just realizing that he's not at the level United need any more. I hope he has a great finish to his career at Everton.

    Legitimately confused every time Silva touches the ball because of his new haircut.
