Never a Red Card
« on: August 12, 2017, 05:22:56 PM »
Just seen the highlights on Sky, and its never in a million years a red card. Its not a clear goal scoring opportunity and theres at least 2 covering players

We are back to consistency. There were plenty of nasty fouls during the game that went unpunished. The sending off was harsh and the ref seemed to think the fans had come to see him. His decision spoilt the game as a spectacle especially as it really wasn't a sending off.
The above IS NOT A LEGAL DOCUMENT. It is an opinion.

We may yet hear the horse talk.

I can stand my own despair but not others hope

I wasn't there so gun me down if you want,  but it sounded like Stefjo hit a free kick back to Odoi, who in turn passed to Kalas and next thing we're under pressure.

Sounds like inviting disaster?

Absolutely must appeal, especially given the atrocious officating today.
Someone once asked me, "Why Fulham?".
My response, "Well, lad, you just haven't seen the light yet"

Catch 22. If we don´t appeal it gives the ref justification of his terrible performance the whole game through.If we do appeal & win justice will be done. However if we lose an appeal there is an extra game ban. As it is only dear old Fulham I doubt the panel would find in our favour as it would reflect badly on their untouchable ref.

Odoi couldn´t have passed to Kalas as he only came on after 5 mins.

My first impression when I saw it live was a red. Could argue that I think it was Ream could have got across but he was clean through had he not been rugby tackled. Can't see it being recinded if I'm honest

not always an extra game ban, just if they consider it frivolous as in trying to delay the game or games they will miss

so far most TV / internet pundits / presenters (call them what you will) say it was very harsh

Did seem ridiculously rash to give a straight red so early on in the game.. seems to be a theme now when  we play reading. Both playoff games saw their goals come from very very dodgy and ultimately wrong refereeing decisions and today's made that three on the trot.

Oh yes of course, i'm just remembering from the commentary, we'll he definitely passed the free kick to a full back which started the whole catalogue of errors.....or maybe not?
