More footage has emerged following Jordan Pickford’s punch up in Sunderland over the weekend – with it now emerging that he gave an off-duty bouncer a black eye after scrapping with Newcastle fans.
It seems he was followed around on his night out and goaded into a reaction, but what else does he expect when he’s gone out of his way to do something similar just about every time we’ve played Everton over the past two seasons?
Here’s the latest footage that’s emerged on social media:
Maybe it is sad that he can’t go out in his home town without being abused or mocked, but I don’t know what else he expects given the way he goes on at times.
Remember when he sprinted across to goad the away end after Everton scored in our game at Goodison last season? Remember his antics at St James’ Park just a few weeks ago – a game that saw him almost calling fans out as he strutted off the pitch in defeat.
The blokes chasing him about on a night out are petty, a bit pathetic and I don’t condone it, but it’s difficult to defend Pickford or have a great deal of sympathy given the way he’s handled himself when the shoe’s been on the other foot.
