Everton: Fans take aim at journalist after criticising Richarlison for possessing ‘theatrics’

Everton fans are unhappy with the comments of a Times journalist after comments that he made about the Brazilian forward Richarlison.

The 22-year-old was the target of discussion after he was accused of possessing ‘theatrics’ and that they are harming the football club, using the example of a Toffees’ fan that moaned at the former Watford frontman for going down too easily.

The game ended 1-1 as goals from Dele Alli and Cenk Tosun in the second half meant that the spoils were shared. However, the game will be remembered for the horrific injury to Andre Gomes after a challenge from Son Heung-min which resulted in him being sent off but was later rescinded by the FA.

Paul Joyce of the Times used the example of an ‘irate’ Everton fan to justify his points that Richarlison’s diving is affecting the football club.

Supporters did not take kindly to the words of the Northern football correspondent and made their feelings clear on social media.

Here are some of the many comments from Everton fans:
