What do people think about it? Over exuberant or just one of those spur of the moment things that happens?And what’s the most memorable celebration you’ve ever seen (or enacted) at work or in a sporting setting?I’m a bit old school – the arm raised aloft does me….Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesPosted at 8:398:39Post updateLiverpool 1-0 EvertonWhat must Everton fans be thinking this morning…? Deja vu maybe….Posted at 8:368:36’It’s disrespectful to Everton’Liverpool 1-0 EvertonDanny MillsFormer England defender on BBC Radio 5 liveJurgen Klopp would be lucky not to be running past me if I was playing in that game. But that’s the sort of problems it can cause. I just think it’s completely wrong. You cannot go on to the middle of the pitch, no matter what the circumstances.There are so many managers that get absolutely hammered but Klopp is very media friendly, everybody seems to love him and he can’t do anything wrongI would like to think that Jurgen Klopp will get into trouble for that. If other managers do that – and we know one in particular – he’d get absolutely slaughtered.It’s absolutely shocking what Jurgen Klopp does. OK, go down the touchline a little bit, come out of your technical area, celebrate with your staff on the bench – I don’t have a problem with that at all.But to run into the middle of the pitch, I think it’s disrespectful to Everton.Posted at 8:288:28Post updateLiverpool 1-0 ArsenalHere’s what a bizarre 96th-minute winning goal does to a football manager…..Video contentVideo caption: Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Klopp apologies for running on pitch after winnerLiverpool 1-0 Everton: Klopp apologies for running on pitch after winnerPosted at 8:218:21Post updateLiverpool 1-0 EvertonGetty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesAs I was saying….the Merseyside derby looked to be petering out into a 0-0 draw. And then Liverpool’s Divock Origi scores a bizarre 96th-minute goal after a mistake from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and Jurgen Klopp goes crazy – sprinting onto the pitch to hug his goalkeeper Alisson.Posted at 8:138:13Post updateLiverpool 1-0 EvertonRight over to the Merseyside derby.I mean it just looked a nailed on 0-0, then I nip out for a minute and all hell breaks loose – thanks largely to Jordan Pickford, Divock Origi and Jurgen Klopp.Posted at 8:088:08’Spurs pay for tough week’Arsenal 4-2 TottenhamSpurs manager Mauricio Pochettino doing his best ‘keeping it upbeat’ impression after the north London derby.Video contentVideo caption: Arsenal 4-2 Tottenham: Spurs ‘pay’ for tough week says PochettinoArsenal 4-2 Tottenham: Spurs ‘pay’ for tough week says PochettinoPosted at 8:038:03Shots firedArsenal 4-2 TottenhamWell then…what do we make of this.And to think it was all looking so good for Tottenham at half time when they led 2-1.Posted at 7:577:57’Important win’Arsenal 4-2 TottenhamBit of an understatement perhaps……Video contentVideo caption: Arsenal 4-2 Tottenham: Emery hails ‘important’ derby winArsenal 4-2 Tottenham: Emery hails ‘important’ derby winPosted at 7:517:51’Arsenal and Emery make biggest statement’Arsenal 4-2 TottenhamGetty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesRemember when Arsenal were really, really good? Me too. And while they may not quite be Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ (circa 2004), they did stretch their unbeaten run to 19 games against Spurs. There are still defensive frailties but also signs that Unai Emery is transforming the Gunners into a team to be reckoned with once again according to BBC Sport’s chief football writer Phil McNulty. Just have a read of this.Posted at 7:457:45’It has embarrassed the Premier League’Arsenal 4-2 TottenhamIan WrightFormer Arsenal & England striker on Match of the DayI’ve played against Spurs and I’ve taken a lot of abuse but never ever has it been racial.Now Spurs have to deal with this because some idiot has done that. It’s not only embarrassed Spurs but it has embarrassed the Premier League because it has gone around the world.It’s really unfortunate to see.Posted at 7:387:38’Completely unacceptable’Arsenal 4-2 TottenhamGetty ImagesCopyright: Getty ImagesThere may have been six goals, a sending-off, and a remarkable Arsenal fightback – which saw the Gunners come from behind to beat rivals Tottenham 4-2…but that was all overshadowed by something rather more unsavoury. Namely a Spurs supporter being arrested after a banana skin was thrown on to the pitch following a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal for Arsenal.There were also six arrests for public order offences, at least two of which were believed to be Arsenal fans who lit smoke canisters during the match.”Behaviour such as this is completely unacceptable and the supporter in question will be issued with a ban,” a Tottenham spokesman said of the banana-skin incident.You can read the full story here.Posted at 7:357:35’Outrageous’ to ‘outrage’Daily MirrorThe Daily Mirror goes from ‘outrageous’ to ‘outrage’ with its coverage of events from Sunday.They also cover a story originally from the Daily Record, that claims Manchester United boss compared Paul Pogba to a virus following Manchester United’s 2-2 draw at Southampton on Saturday.Daily MirrorCopyright: Daily MirrorPosted at 7:297:29’Disgrace’The SunThe Sun lead with a story that highlights the horrible side of the north London derby.The SunCopyright: The SunPosted at 7:267:26Back pagesThe Daily ExpressThe Daily Express lead with Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Tottenham and the banana skin thrown at Gunners forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.Daily ExpressCopyright: Daily ExpressPosted at 7:237:23The back pagesThe TimesThe Times focus on a banana skin that was thrown on to the pitch during Sunday’s ill-tempered north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium.TimesCopyright: TimesPosted at 7:197:19Derby mayhemThe Daily TelegraphThe Daily Telegraph’s headline sums up the north London and Merseyside derbies to a tee.Daily TelegraphCopyright: Daily TelegraphPosted at 7:147:14Post updateFirst things first though.
