Video: Dedryck Boyata Tackle On Chamakh

Video: Dedryck Boyata Tackle On Chamakh

Yes Dedryck Boyata did catch the rolling Chamakh, who has certainly joined in the spirit of Arsenal's divers - but he did get something on the ball.

That's what Pedmachine wrote in his Man City v Arsenal match (click here) report but was it a fair comment?

Take a look for yourselves.

Not a red card offence for me i'm afraid. Yellow, yes but not red. Bleedn' Clattenburg (grrr)!

How can you say that Boyata got the ball and then say its a yellow card offence?
25/10/2010 20:37:00
The cop out continues.

(shakes his head in disbelief) Tudor you are proving something i have thought for a while than man city fans on here are just one eyed supporters who see no different other than city's 'brillance'. You are saying it was a 'yellow' card, now before i say this i suggest you and the rest of your supporters go and look up the rules of football...If you are suggesting it was a yellow card then you are saying it was a foul, and it was of course the last man so therefore it is a red card! What is so hard to understand about that rule! Clattenburg got it spot on no arguments thereforce the ref has done nothing wrong.

P.Avfc, true he was the last man, but the Newcastle defender who took down Tevez and Vidic in CC final last season against your own club didn't get sent off for taking out the last man because, I suppose (in the referee's view), the attacker wasn't central (much like Chamakh wasn't). One rule for some, another for the rest of us?

Vidic against Villa also after 5 minutes. Him being sent off could have had a similar effect on the game that Boyata going off for us did. Do you see the contradictory decision making, P.Avfc?

is Clattenberg an 'Apologist' for the Sky4 as every time he officiated in matches that has Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, and The Rags, The opposing team 'Struggles' to get a fair match, as 50-50 decisions go to the Sky4, even 60-40 go that way too, as was the case Fabregas did not get a2nd yellow for tha way he 'SCYTHED' down Silva is beyond me......

StuM you're obviously a lone voice here on VMC, maybe you should be writing the articles because all I've seen so far from your main guys is complete and utter petulant infantile bile. Maybe its because VMC is so small and you don't have enough dissenting voices that they just write whatever crap they can get away with because nobody cares whether this site is represented well or not. Its a shame because Citeh didn't play badly and you would expect your fans to be talking about the effort your players put in given that they played 85 minutes with 10 men against an Arsenal side that treated this game as one of the most important of the season. But all we have heard from VMC is how we cheated, and how the ref favoured us and how dirty we were, and that we didn't deserve to win. I'm only saying this because I really like the vital network but I must admit I was shocked by your guys response to this defeat.

Ahaahahahha...what was Boyata doing? Daft plum. Ridiculous tackle STONEWALL. To the City fans moaning, fecking get over it. It was a penalty. Jesus, what does a player now have to do to get you to accept reason, and the evidence of your own eyes? Pull out a chainsaw and slice his ******** legs off? I bet so. I bet that if the **** was lying in a pool of his own blood, you'de be like " ooooh, well, he might be dead, but did he make contact"? Ahahhahahahahaa!!! Stop blaming the ref, it's so boring. You're begining to sound like the rags. Oh,and I hate the Arsenal so don't try to tar me with that brush.

Shut up Mr groan, why don't you go and visit the 'famous Library Museum' and see where the European Cup could have been if Henry hadn't missed? And City fans, it was a bad tackle. He got it wrong, he should have 'rolled with it'. Don't look back in anger.
