The curious case of Marouane Fellaini

The curious case of Marouane Fellaini

And to think it's usually Stoke who are accused of being overly physical..............

There will not have been a single Evertonian who would have defended the actions of Marouane Fellaini against Stoke on Saturday.

The Belgian International has spoken of his desire to get into the Champions League either with Everton of following a move away from Goodison Park, but all he achieved on Saturday was probably a lengthy suspension and hefty fine.

If it was just one incident, then perhaps we could have forgiven him, he is of course only human and sometimes we can react wrongly or out of character in the heat of the moment. But Fellaini simply lost his head on numerous occasions with Ryan Shawcross.

There was an incident with his elbow, a punch/slap that wasn't much but was still more than Audley Harrison managed in a recent boxing match and of course the head butt which is what everyone is concentrating on.

With referee Mark Halsey and his assistants missing the incident, Everton and Fellaini expect a Football Association suspension to follow once the footage has been reviewed.

There simply was no excuses and Everton didn't offer any in his defence.

'He deserves to get the punishment, I've seen it, it's a terrible thing to do and I expect him to be punished.' Moyes honestly told The Echo.

He added: "It's down to the FA. I've told him it's not acceptable and whatever he gets, he and us deserve it.'

As well as a multiple match ban, it's likely that Moyes will also fine Fellaini two weeks wages, which could cost him up to £150,000.

What was missing was Fellaini saying 'I SEE YOU JIMMY!' before laying the Glaswegian kiss on Shawcross. He would sound so much better with a regional english accent instead of that gay french one. Quality. Let's bring him to spurs to play with dembele

Shawcross is one of the dirtiest players in football and he was going to get a smack off someone sooner or later,unfortunately it had to be off our dirty ******** if he does go in jan, lets hope we can do something really useful with the dosh come the sales in January.
