did himself no favours in Everton’s 3-2 defeat to Newcastle earlier this month. The former Sunderland seemed to be more focused on riling up the St James’ Park crowd rather than helping his team win, and he probably should have been sent off at one point when he fouled Salomon in the box. As quoted by the Chronicle, Pickford has now claimed that the Army aimed “abuse” at him in the fixture, but unsurprisingly, some Newcastle on have hit back at the 25-year-old for his comments. Pickford knew what he was doing. He is a fan and he wanted to show that at St James’ Park by provoking the home fans. However they gave it back as good as he was giving it, and his latest comments come across as a bit contradictory. No wonder some Newcastle are trolling England’s number one.
