Everton 2-2 Newcastle United – Premier League – 17th September 2012

Newcastle came from behind twice against Everton at Goodison, to claim a share of the points. Demba Ba was the star man for the Magpies, netting a second-half brace after coming on as a sub.

Prior to the game, Everton paid tribute to the 96 victims of the Hillsborough tragedy after last week’s momentous developments.

In-form Leighton Baines opened the scoring on 15 minutes as Newcastle struggled to get a foothold in the game. However, the introduction of Ba changed the game, with the Senegal star netting the equaliser early in the second-half.

Everton sub Victor Anichebe then thought he had scored, only for ref Mike Jones to fail to see that ball had crossed the line. However, the Everton striker did eventually put the home side 2-1 up on 88 minutes. But once again, Ba struck to level the scores in what was a highly entertaining game.

    It was a hard game to watch as an everton fan, its rare I complain about the ref but he was awful, we had two goals ruled offside (one was a good foot onside), the goal that was not given and during the first half Jelavic was fouled every time he got the ball to the point that he had to leave the pitch.
    my real issue is with the epic idiocy of the sky sports commentator parry, after we scored he said “thats the second time justice has been done this week on merseyside”, one is a football match one is a tragedy.

    Cringeworthy that.

    As an aside, how is justice done when you score a perfectly valid goal? That somehow negates the valid goals that were disallowed?

    Justice would be, well, not disallowing 2 valid goals….

    I felt that the most blatantly bad decision was when NUFC wer 3 on 1 and the game was stopped BECAUSE..Fellaini was running towards goal and S.Taylor was running away, making a larger gap in a split second.
    and the Goal, well, the Lino had to be 100% certain.

    I don’t agree with Lord Idiot Sugar, saying the NUFC players should have stopped and told the Ref…what if they said it went over and it didn’t.

    Jelavic left because he kept getting fouled? Ha, he left because he never fully recovered from clattering the post.

    Just fucking deal with it, not the first time decisions have went against a fan’s own team. Everton are just piss poor defensively.
