SportPesa tweet draws Evertonian ire

Sunday 22 October 2017  37 Comments  [Jump to last]
A tweet from the official account of the club's main sponsor, SportPesa, congratulating Arsenal on their 5-2 win at Goodison Park has caused outrage among Everton fans.

The Kenyan-based betting firm, which also has a partnership agreement with the London club, have since deleted the post which revelled in the fact that the Gunners had five different goalscorers in their decisive victory over the Blues this afternoon.

Well, this just about sums up the state of this club. Clowns to the left of us and jokers to the right.

The club is a disgrace and Moshiri has changed nothing.

Well it can only get better. Can't get any worse.

Final nail in the coffin this. Next we'll have Angry Birds taking the piss...

It's worse under Moshiri than Kenwright. His barnet all jovial-like as his beloved Arsenal knock in their 5th.

What do we do? He needs to know we're fuming...

That's a disgrace, pure and simple

Yes, angry birds launching destructive pieces of shit via catapult would probably sum up the transfer policy

I don't expect a commercial sponsor to actually support us but this is crass.

The game is a joke. Top to bottom. Watched the Bayern Munich Goodison game a few days ago to remind myself why I ever gave a shit.

This totally sums us up even our shirt sponsors are run by morons and idiots.

That's like the Red Shite's sponsor congratulating us when we hammer them in the derby.

Guys I think the tweet is the last of our problems, the reality is more concerning!!!!

What direction are our beloved blues going? Kenwright and Moshiri are custodians of our club; time to take responsibility and more importantly action.

One calamity after another...we should run out to the Benny Hill theme tune instead of Z Cars.
Actually, now I've written that,I'm imagining it would be the best way to get 40,000 angry scousers smiling again, might be worth a try.

Only people who don't go to the game would suggest a boycott,as the club already have my cash I'm not going to miss a game as bad as it is

This tweet is a symptom of all that is wrong. The Corporate elite don't get it and never will. We need to take the club back.

If Hills Angels ran out with the team I'd agree with you.

Sport peas don't even know who we are we were just a prem club with shirt space available

Every Evertonian on the planet should write a simple letter to the club without malice simply stating we as members and fans give Moshiri, Kenwright and especially Ronald Koeman our vote of no confidence and they need replacing immediately.

This can not go on week after week, it's not that we are getting beat game after game, or it's at a stage where teams are resting players against us and still winning easily. It's the way we play and the lack of fight. 42 years of supporting Everton and I really fear for the club we are heading into a leeds situation.

We have spent big, and by Christmas we will be knocked out of every compition facing relegation. Koeman will spend big again and we still be in the same situation and Moshiri is not what he promises to be and puts the club in huge debt of which they will never recover from.

I'm watching W1A and it seems like Everton is the football equivalent of the total stupidity shown there

Who gives a fuck about this shite? Faux outrage at a fucking sponsor.

Think we have more important things to worry about.

Franny, stop worrying about this thread. More important things...

I'd never heard of SportPesa before they became this season's sponsor. Who gives a fuck what they tweet? The only important thing is how we do on the pitch, and we're shite under Koeman. If we were good, nobody would give a shit about SportPesa.

Respect, Franny.

Running out to the Benny Hill tune really cheered me up! Hahaha!

We’re not quick enough to run out to the Benny Hill tune.
James Marshall
33 Posted 22/10/2017 at 20:42:26
Good point, Colin. Is Ronald Koeman the new Bob Todd?
Gerard Carey

I think more Keystone Cops than Benny Hill.

The Vision On theme would be more appropriate at the moment!

Only thing that has improved with Moshiri is the cladding on the Old Lady

Piss taken by Sport Peas? Angry Birds looming like (red-green-blue?) vultures? This is getting fucking surreal!.. Please, someone, lets now go the whole hog, take a big fuck-off stereo to the Chelsea game.. and blast out that Benny Hill runaround theme as suggested!!!

(Maybe we can even invoke him as Ernie, lending us - much-needed! - pace with his fastest milk-cart, to at least go down fighting till that stale pork pie catches him in the eye!!).. or did that already happen in the Lyon game with Ashley Rock-Cake, haha, Williams?.. like I say, fucking surreal this!!!

Sportspesa is run by Bulgarian and South African gangsters. Dodgey fucking outfit that we should never have got in to bed with..They won't know who We are so who gives s fuck..Another thumbs down for the Moshiri top buisness man accolades.

What a typically latter-day fuck up. Rushing to impress the millennial hipsters by social media. Thoroughness secondary.
