Actually, BE, I have to confess that if the dippers had to play rags or Arse or Chelsea in their next three games, I would have been happy to see his ban reduced because, of course, it would strengthen those teams prospects.





I can undertand that, Rising. I'd secretly feel the same. But, it still reeks of them thinking they did nothing wrong. A "big" club shoud have more class.

Loving this thread - tribalism is alive and well!

I even got the impression at times that some felt sorry for Mané as if he was the victim of some massive injustice.

Utterly amazed at the illogical arguments put forward in his defence. The most laughable is the contradictory "he didn't see the keeper coming and was just trying to flick it over him"

The comments:-

"He was only looking at the ball" - irrelevant. As irrelevant as saying "But I got the ball"! after breaking someone's leg in the tackle

"He didn't see the keeper coming" - illogical. If he didn't know the keeper was there he would have let the ball drop and wouldn't have needed to launch himself into mid-air

"He was looking to tip it away from the keeper" - contradicts the one above. If he didn't see the keeper coming then how could have been 'trying to tip it away'

"He has to go for that. The reward is so great if he beats the keeper to the ball, he just has to go for it" - Specious. No he doesn't if it endangers his opponent. The 'reward' is irrelevant.

The facetious garbage that has been spouted about this dangerous tackle has been just bonkers

Spot on, Skoorb. I'm dumbfounded that there has even been an argument against the red. It just exposes the hypocrisy in the media, and the barely concealed hatred that exsists towards us.

Just wait until we play the dippers at Candlefield. They will give Ederson some outrageous sh*t just to add to the crap that Sterling gets served up.

I'm sure they will. Maybe they can time travel back to the 1800's to find the last time they were relevant.

I was thinking about Gayle and his comment where he suggested that our Eddy was not a proper man, If the medical team had walked him off the field with a suspected broken jaw and you can clearly lip read the medical man who says a broken jaw, he would have been severely criticised and the correct thing to do was stretcher him off.

A proper man wears protection ie headgear and turns out for the next game

Sorry to bring this up again but I see Mane appears not to have learned his lesson, speaking about the incident he's said that he'll make sure he gets there before the keeper the next time.

Perhaps the FA should write to him, and to Liverpool while they're at it, to remind them of the rules about endangering an opponent's safety.

Why? If he's stupid enough not to take the 3 match ban being upheld as evidence that the FA agree with the refs interpretation, then why do you think writing to him will make any difference? Just keep sending him off and increasing the length of ban until he gets the message

Suppose, just irks me that they believe they're the victims of a miscarriage of justice.

That is disappointing- he would have been better saying that he'll think twice before endangering an opponent.

But an unsurprising response after all the validation he and his challenge have received from the enablers in the media. That's what happens when all your mates tell you 'you did nothing wrong'

I keep wondering what the reaction would have been if Agüero had done that to Mignolet?
