Jesus left on crutches.


Looked like medial ligaments so could be several weeks (up to twelve) - I just pray it isn't ACL. We both saw Mendy and Gundgogan succumb to those injuries after relatively innocuous incidents, try to carry on and then stop.

Too many tired legs out there as well, but as i said before a point is a point, still unbeaten and we can start again.

If these injuries were going to happen, thank God it's the start of the transfer window and that will give us a chance to bring in reinforcements because we're going to need them.

Unless the refs start to ACTUALLY deal with these horror challenges, we are going to need to do business in January. We might need to go after Sanchez now

Hands up those who don't think Puncheon's injury was as bad as he made out but that he was trying to evade a red card knowing what he had done?

Puncheon's position during the penalty after which he scythed down De Bruyne. On a mission to stop a City break away/counter attack by targeting KDB?

Paying no attention to the kick, looking directly at KDB and positioned to chase him down when the Ball breaks City’s way

Couldn’t get the video to play Colin - says it was taken down by a copyright request from the owner.

I'm not sure if this is Pep being coy, but he is downplaying Sanchez to City.

And here we have Graham Poll saying

“I struggle to see how Jon Moss could have given a red card to Jason Puncheon, though.
It was a nasty tackle on Kevin De Bruyne but it’s very difficult for a referee to give a red card to a player who is on a stretcher”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5224769/Crystal-P...

I’m sorry but that just won’t wash.

If a player has injured himself whilst committing a foul worthy of a red card I don’t care how “tough” it is for the official, he should still deal with the offence. I will be watching very carefully how soon Puncheon recovers from his ‘injury’. I think he knew what he had done, expected he would get a red card and with only a minute to go decided he’d take a cowards way out. I will eat my hat if I am proved wrong.

Just watched the incident again.......

Puncheon is still being treated on the pitch when Moss issues the yellow card so Graham Poll’s comment about dealing with an offender whilst on a stretcher is bogus. There is no reason why Puncheon couldn’t have been shown a red card.

Totally bottled it and I am sick to death of cowardly officials ‘not seeing’ these seriously poor challenges or not dealing with them appropriately.
