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.

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.

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?

Poor free kick into space behind Fred, Fred played to Kalas & Kalas had no options so tried to dribble out of defence & got caught in possession. His rugby tackle on the Reading player was rubbish & my initial thought was to look at ref. Ref already had his hand in his pocket which is always a bad sign.

I will need to see a replay to see if Ream would have got across to cover

I was there , high up in the stand behind the goal and immediately thought ita foul wold be given and maybe a yellow card.

Having see the TV clip in seems a very harsh decision to give a red card and to reduce the whole match to eleven v ten.

Honestly? It's not as harsh as I had expected it to be.

I mean, the player is through on goal with a clear shot if he's not fouled. The early in the game sense might have come into play, but I doubt that'll be overturned.

Nice to see the Reading players applauding the sending off on the pic used on the BBC web site.  Very classy Reading.  Just about sums your dreadful club up.

I disagree as Ream is coming across no guarantee the shot is at target so to speak, very harsh. I hear we are appealing
