Some Everton fans have been left fuming over some news that has emerged involving their game away at Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.
As per The Athletic journalist Patrick Boyland, Stuart Attwell has now been appointed as the referee for the match in the Premier League.
Where will Everton finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
The Goodison Park faithful do not have the best record in fixtures when he has been in charge, only managing to win eight out of 17, drawing five and losing four, while he has never given them a penalty kick and has dished out two red cards to them, the joint-second most of any side (Transfermarkt).
Even though he was not officiating the game, a Toffees supporter was heard blasting Attwell during the Merseyside club’s 0-0 draw at home to Tottenham Hotspur in the top flight earlier this month, and it seems some Blues share his view on the official.
Everton fans on Attwell appointment
These EFC fans fumed as the news of Attwell’s appointment was shared on Twitter:
“Nothing for us there then.”
“He should be banned from being anywhere near us, he is a disgrace of a referee”
“Do you remember the goal he gave Reading against Watford back in 2008 which went nowhere near the net?”
“I was thinking, “oh no!” But who are the alternatives……..Moss? Atkinson? Dean? Kavanagh? Pawson or Madley?…….a woeful officials roster in the PL”
