Cmon Chelsea!! Conte is a likeable guy always gonna root for him, and he bent over for Wenger which makes me like him even more
Not a clear goal scoring opportunity. Pen and Yellow is right
How is that not a clear goal scoring opportunity?
He was going to be 1 v 1 with the keeper.
No way is a yellow justified.
Lol! That was a clear red. 1-0 Chelsea!
How was that not a clear goal scoring opportunity?
Big Dave was in goal
Jones was still right with him and he attempted to win the ball
They’ve chnged the rules according to a mate of mine who coaches.
red is now for professional foul or dangerous play. Yellow if just a foul / pen.
It’s to mitigate double punishment.
Oliver was spot on.
Double jeopardy everyone…
And if not for a tackle where he brought him down he would have been Hazard 1 v 1 with De Gea.
It’s a goal scoring opportunity all day long.
Read my post.
What about when Laurent Koscielny was on the half way line v Andy Carroll a few seasons back? He was sent off for that.
I just think, had that been an Arsenal player, he’d have been off
They’ve changed the rule since then, obviously.
That’s a professional foul though, he was attempting to deny a goal scoring opportunity.
There was an incident in a match a little while ago… can’t remember which now, where a penalty and a yellow was awarded. Then after looking at it, the referee decided it was outside the box so it became a free kick, which meant the card turned to red.
What about when…
Ok, I’ll stop now
Meh. He’s clearly going for the ball, it’s not a cynical rugby tackle.
But yeah I guess it can easily be misinterpreted.
Mou is out of ideas. Very ez for chelsea. Hazard showed up and he alone will decide this game.
conceding a penalty and losing a player for the rest of the match is definitely a more shitty rule than the current one.
Would have completely killed the competitiveness of the match
