Everton: Fans slam Dermot Gallagher comments

Everton: Fans slam Dermot Gallagher comments -Everton News

Many Everton fans have been left slamming former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher for some comments that he made after their weekend game.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ weekly programme Ref Watch, in where Gallagher talks about the major incidents that happened in the top flight each weekend, he claimed that Aaron Cresswell’s yellow card for West Ham United against Liverpool was rightfully given, whereas Mason Holgate was right to be sent off against Tottenham Hotspur.

In his justification for the Cresswell incident, Gallagher admitted that he is ‘in the minority’ thinking that it should not have been a red, claiming that he does not think he catches the opponent like Holgate did, and that the difference was the ‘point of contact’.

Jurgen Klopp was not happy at all at VAR for not giving Cresswell a red, despite the similarities with Holgate’s challenge (The Daily Telegraph).

Gallagher also argues that the penalty awarded for a foul on Richarlison against Spurs was rightfully overturned, but also thinks that the referee was right not to play advantage as well, something some Toffees supporters disagreed with after an image after Hugo Lloris’ challenge was shared on Twitter.

Only the biggest Everton fan will know who all these players signed from! First up, Jean-Philippe Gbamin...

There was a possibility that the decision would not be overturned, and so they feel as if the ref should have played advantage first and then potentially blow up.

These Blues slammed Gallagher after The Athletic journalist Patrick Boyland shared his thoughts on his comments on Twitter:

“I think the week he tried to validate the penalty that Brighton got against us few years back was the moment I realised that “ref watch” was and is a complete waste of time.”
