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 :grin::grin:

Not a clear goal scoring opportunity. Pen and Yellow is right


#726

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.


#727

Lol! That was a clear red. 1-0 Chelsea!


#728

How was that not a clear goal scoring opportunity? :joy:


#729

Big Dave was in goal :muscle:


#730

Jones was still right with him and he attempted to win the ball


#731

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.


#732

Double jeopardy everyone…

#733

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.


#734

Read my post.


#735

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


#736

:joy:

They’ve changed the rule since then, obviously.


#737

That’s a professional foul though, he was attempting to deny a goal scoring opportunity.

Shitty rule.


#738

#739

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.


#740

Lol

What about when…

Ok, I’ll stop now


#741

Meh. He’s clearly going for the ball, it’s not a cynical rugby tackle.

But yeah I guess it can easily be misinterpreted.


#742

Mou is out of ideas. Very ez for chelsea. Hazard showed up and he alone will decide this game.


#743

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
