Not only does he come off as sour and petty, he just has no idea what he’s talking about.

And exhale! Late in Saturday’s draw at Molineux against Wolves, Everton debutant Richarlison went down with an injury.

Royal Blue Mersey - Sun Aug 12 11:32 AM
What did we learn from Marco Silva’s first game in charge?
