Royal Blue: The Everton FC Podcast
Royal Blue: Jordan Pickford's challenge, the reaction to it, and paying tribute to Lucas Digne, the league's best left-back
Monday, 19 October
So... another eventual Merseyside derby, then. But before getting stuck into the subject that has dominated the agenda in the 48 hours since the 2-2 draw at Goodison Park, Adam Jones, Dave Prentice, Chris Beesley and Gavin Buckland kick off the latest Royal Blue podcast by actually discussing Everton's performance. Talk then, inevitably, turns to Jordan Pickford's challenge on Virgil van Dijk, and the reaction to it in the traditional media and on social media. The other flashpoints of the game are also examined, including Richarlison's sending-off, while there is praise for debutant Ben Godfrey, and particularly for Lucas Digne, whose pinpoint cross was headed in by the on-fire Dominic Calvert-Lewin to ensure the Blues of the point that kept them top of the Premier League table. Enjoy.
