Bad tackles this season

The MEN litany of horror tackles this season......

https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/sport/football/football-news...

The condoning by some I have seen elsewhere of these sorts of challenges against whoever they might have been committed is just ..........mind boggling. The standard "It's a man's game" through to "It's England, what does he expect" from a professional (sic) manager (Warnock)

The precedent has been set with the Diving Panel (or whatever) to review occasions when a player has deceived a match official. This takes place AFTER the game and can result in a subsequent ban.

Given that they are reviewing incidents after the game has finihsed and which ergo cannot affect the result BUT which can be seen to correct obvious errors by a match official during the game in question I have to ask ........why cannot decisions such as the yellow card which Mason issued to Bennett for his awful foul on Sané be the subject of a similar process?

Doesn't help City, won't help Sané directly BUT ensures that an obvioius mistake is rectified and that the correct punishment is applied. Bennett's suspension could be upgraded to 3 matches and so managers and players might actually think twice before the set out to deliver a few 'naughty' tackles and so players might be better protected. It certainly wouldn't do any harm.

In a similar vein the challenges by Cook (Bournemouth) on Jesus; Kane (on Sterling); Alli (on De Bruyne) & Puncheon (De Bruyne) could all have been correctly designated as red card offences and their teams had to suffer the consequences of longer bans.

The CORRECT decision would be enforced.

In other news meanwhile....if you spit at someone (a despicable act and deserves a long ban) you get a six match suspension

A sign of how the world is now. Feelings are more important than physical violence.

I think the (in my view) over-the-top punishment for spitting was brought in because of the albeit remote possibility of passing on something nasty like HIV, but I might be wrong.

Another game, and another awful red-card worthy challenge is added to the list

Horrendous tackle, good on Brahim though for picking himself up and getting on with it, these foreign lads, they're all pussies.

Watch Fernandinho get a ban now for trodding on that Polish cnuts's leg ( I'm not even going to attempt to spell his name)

You bet.

Just waiting for it to gather a head of steam and for Sky to have it on a permanent loop à la the Ballotelli ("He could have killed 'im") incident with Parker against Spurs. Only a matter of time once the rag supporting hacks get their teeth into it.

I fully expect Bobby 'Crap' Madley to say that he didn't see it but if he did he would have sent him off. That's what they all do when confronted with something of this nature.

Normally, the FA announce retrospective charges on a Monday or Tuesday (after weekend games) so I don't know how it works with midweek games. I'm assuming they would have to announce today (Thursday) and give the offending player/club until 6pm tomorrow to accept or not, ahead of the weekend fixtures.

Like the pair of you, I'm expecting some action on Fernie.
If Madley had some sort of backbone, he'd admit he saw it, and there would be no case to answer. That was the reaction of the Sky commentators on first viewing - that changed on the second angle.
At least that would be a rest for the man.

To my simple way of viewing it, there's a contradiction.
The argument against upgrading yellow cards is that the game shouldn't be refereed again - yet this is the ethos behind the diving panel

Not the only ones to notice

http://www.espn.co.uk/football/club/manchester-city/382/blog/post/3...

Although the video is mostly about how Fernandinho should get banned for stamping on the WBA player. Did he mean it? Maybe, maybe it was accidental but I expect no quarter from the FA when they choose to punish this after Madley will say he didn't see it.

In the wider context of the PL are there more dangerous fouls affecting other clubs - we don't have a monopoly on skilful players; Hazard, Rashford, Mane, Martial and Sanchez for instance.

In some ways I can understand why opponents are doing it - if we are having 80 or so percent of possession then perhaps opponents act out of frustration at not being able to play with our ball. As a commentator said recently we 'loan' the other side the ball.

Not for one moment condoning these fouls, think they are disgraceful and officials really need to clamp down on them and start sending players off.

Should City Consider Criminal Proceedings?

Football is a physical sport, we all know that. I mean, it comes with the territory doesn’t it. Having said that several WBA player challenges last night at the Etihad stepped over the line, and in my opinion some of the deliberate lunges and subsequent City player clatters came close to becoming criminal offences.

http://www.manchestercity.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=589630

The future

If the match day referee’s cannot cope with similar thuggery then they should be reprimanded.

Obvious tackles that cause a player to require medical treatment and the offending player is seen to show clear intent of assault should be dealt with by the full letter of the law.

Dirty ********

RANT OVER!
