Everton forward Richarlison burst his lip in the FA Cup 3rd round victory over Lincoln City last weekend by attempting to smile. This season, the Brazilian ace has been deployed on the left, upfront, and for a short period against The Imps, found himself in the unfamiliar position of attempting his first smile since signing for the blues.
“I’ll give anything a go,” said the permanently frowning youngster, “my preference will always be to have my face in my hands whilst I roll around on the floor following a tackle or a foul, but if it’s what the Manager wants then I’ll do my best.”
The tie also provided a brief opportunity for the Goodison faithful to smile, something which had not been possible for the entire month of December. It is expected that normal service will be resumed by the coming weekend.
No way is that a red. This Richarlison is some player. Can we finish a match with eleven men some time this season? What’s going on – these signings are actually good? West Ham – seriously? Robbed there. What a goal Siggi – but no more penalties. Bernard’s going to be a world beater. Stop pissing about in the League Cup! We’ve won away! Bernard’s struggling isn’t he. Where’s Gomes and Mina? We’ll never beat the ‘Big 6.’ Seamus reads social media. Gomes does exist! And he’s brilliant too! Theo and Cenk have gone shit. I’m falling in love with Andre Gomes. Start Lookman. We’re actually starting to look good. Don’t start Lookman – he’s better as a sub. We could get top 6 this season. The Andre Gomes pictures on my desktop and constant appearances in my search history? Nothing to worry about love – it’s just erm, research. What – the – fuck – were you thinking there? We’ll beat these two. We didn’t beat these two. I said no more penalties for you. There’s no way we’ll finish top 6 this season.
