Tomkins regrets his Goodison reaction

tomkinsfaceWest Ham defender James Tomkins has admitted he was wrong to collapse in a heap holding his facew after a pushing incident between him and Kevin Miralles.

He did himself no favours at all when Mirallas seemed to push him in the chest after the teams squared up to each other following another bad tackle on Morgan Amalfitano.

He told the Newham Recorder: “He has obviously caught me quite high on my neck and my chin and I am thinking about helping the team.”

The central defender was widely criticised on social media as well as by pundits on television including former England striker Alan Shearer.

Tomkins said: “Looking back it is not the way to react. The lad was over the top and pushed me with two hands, but from me it was just a reaction, it happens so quick and you don’t think at the time.”

  1. Hugh, please credit the source of your quotes (Newham Recorder)

  2. Getting back to the point – Tomkins should be ashamed of himself, it shows him up as a cheat and reflects badly on the Club, if it was up to me I’d fine him and drop him if that didn’t shoot us in the foot!

    Anyway, all very depressing!

  3. So, as I said below, he knows he did wrong, now he has admitted it, now that should be the end of it. Heat of the battle and all that.
