  1. Everton got what they deserved. funos mori spent 50secs celebrating what he thought was a match winner, the ref only added the time wasted during the celebration. Everton had only one option once they’d retaken the lead, get the corner flag and hold up play. Nonetheless, that was an amazing game of football, I feel sad for Oviedo he just can’t stay fit for a long run. Tim Howard should’ve stayed in goal oR better close down D.Costa after he had won the challenge with jagielka (he was off balance at that point).

    • yes, everton should’ve done better at the end of the game (think it was 3 consecutive headers in the penalty box by chelsea for the goal?), but you certainly can’t blame them for a blown call by the ref.

      i thought this game was 2015 howard in a nutshell: some world-class saves, and then a rookie mistake to give away a goal–there’s no way costa should’ve been allowed to walk that ball in.

      • 7 minutes of extra time wasn’t high–there had been a fair amount of injury time in the second half. and the ref had to add an additional minute to those 7 due to the stoppages (goal, corners, goal kicks) in the extra time. i thought the ref did a great job of getting the time right.

        the offside call (or non-call) was inexcusable though. i can only assume the linesman didn’t see the last touch off of oscar.
