“It’s time for Everton to get angry.” Those are the words of The Athletic journalist Greg O’Keeffe – but supporters have their doubts over whether the club will change their ways.
The demand for a response from the club comes after manager Marco Silva’s stance on the serious ankle injury that Portuguese midfielder picked up during the 1-1 draw against Tottenham, inflicted by Spurs’ winger Son Heung-min.
The South Korea international was initially sent off by referee Martin Atkinson, only for his dismissal to be rescinded by an independent panel.
O’Keeffe believes that the players should take their anger out on Southampton. Not only because Everton sit 17th in the Premier League table, but the Saints sit above them and have not won under Marco Silva when the team has gone behind in a league game.

The last few vile weeks have provided very sound ammunition to create a ‘us against the world’ attitude of aggression and passion. But…. I highly doubt it happening 😕

Whatever Moyes’ faults, he’d have created a siege mentality, us against the world vibe over the last couple of weeks. The current regime doesn’t seem to have that same fight

Unfortunately our manager has told refs that we respect their decisions no matter what and richarlison does go to ground too easily so I don’t see any fighting attitude coming out anytime soon 😒

Wont count on it Greg. We are a soft touch that was highlighted in Sunday and further with Silva’s interview on the official site. Turned my stomach how he failed to call out the FA and media over decisions last week and how Richarlson was portrayed this week

Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
We will roll over for them, I mean they haven’t won for a while. Send Coleman in before to tell them we will let them win out of sympathy.
