What remains bizarre is that when players have clearly been injured and requiring treatment by medical staff on the pitch, it is they who are required to get off the pitch and wait on the sideline for permission to return to the play. This means that the side offended against is left a player light for perhaps only seconds but nevertheless the team that has committed the foul gain another advantage.

I know that this rule was introduced many years ago at FIFA's behest I believe during a World Cup to try and prevent players feigning injury in order to break up the rhythm of play and disrupt the opposition. Whilst this was a legitimate aim as play acting was rife it now seems ridiculous that when there is an obvious injury that there is no leeway given to the referee to use their judgement in these matters. Against WBA when both Walker and Diaz were on the receiving end of bad fouls it was their side that was left a man down after the incident rather than the offending team.

Perhaps both players should be sent to the touchline in such instances.

A 5 /10 min sin bin for a yellow card? 5 for persisent fouling, 10 for a bad foul, just a card with no sin bin for minor offences like kicking the ball away

Others have noticed the bad challenges our players have been subjected to as this article notes towards the end.

(Burnley) Defending The Undefendable

Does anyone have a touch of déjà vu ahead of Saturday's Premier League match against Burnley? I know I do.

Read more: http://www.manchestercity.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=589674#...

How many more City players will end up this weekend on the injury list - I believe there is seven at the last count.

The last couple of games against West Brom (Alan Pardew), Cardiff City (Neil Warnock) I could go on, all came out and defended (as one would expect) their respective players following horrendous challenges against City players. So, when the next City player ends up in hospital having surgery, or on Monday morning players have muscle / tendon remedial treatment then I'll confidentially say, 'I told you so.'

I just don't think it goes far enough, to stick in as a by-line, it just makes me wonder of all these tackles not one of them could see it properly yet good enough to issue a yellow card.

The McClean incident where the Ref says he didn't touch you enough, is not good enough, the intent was there for everyone to see except KDB

The FA should re-visit this can't do anything because the ref has seen it, but no he hasn't because when they see the tackles on TV everyone agrees that it should have been a red, but that is no good for City they still lose a player to injury whilst the teams that benefits are those that they play after the retrospective action.

VAR cannot come soon enough for me, mistakes and errors and all that comes with it until they get it right, but everyone has to have it not just the odd few.

I agree, VAR will help out the slow to keep up with play refs the most.

Unsurprisingly the Moaning One is quite satisfied with the performance of the referees.

Of course he is. They are doing a fine job of attempting to handicap his main rivals for the title and attention.

Twat.

He would change his tune if The Orange got cleaned out with a knee high tackle from a Aaron Mooy this afternoon causing him to miss two months of the season. I am sure he would be singing the praises of the officials then.

Think Mourinho, as usual, is playing hard and fast with this assertion.
Several times this season he's had a pop at the officials in his post match interviews.

City have written to the PGMOL it seems to arrange a meeting to discuss these tackles

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

It is clear to me that the rule which prevents further action being taken against a player who is booked for an offence which is subsequently regarded as having merited a red card is purely to protect the officials from scrutiny.

But the precedent has been set with the review of ‘simulation’ - that involves post match review of decisions plus the advent of VAR is underpinned by the principle of correcting “clear and obvious” errors.

I don’t hold out much hope though.

Danny Murphy touched on this on SDky's debate, he was saying that it does not matter if the ref is supposed to have seen it or issued a card, there should be retrospective action for bad fouls.

As we all know the ref gets a split second view and we gets all angles and slow motion, the works in fact, but you would think that a second viewing by the ref would give him the chance to rectify the colour of the card.

Personally I would like to see it done at the time, but I understand that this is not possible with the complaint of delays to the play. Perhaps the TV companies could shove in a couple of adverts to compensate , Like the one which starts out ' Have you been injure at work? '

The same Danny Murphy who said this on MOTD back in December.

Yes - he should be presented with that comment and challenged on it.

We all know that there is a massive difference between a trip Ora tug of the shirt and the sort of challenges delivered against Sané, Diaz, De Bruyne (x 4), Sterling & Gündogan - the fact that this difference is not the subject of discussion shows the paucity of ‘punditry’ really.

Meanwhile Maureen complains about players needing protection......by saying he won’t complain about players needing protection and tries to have a pop at Pep in dosing so.

His stupid “mind games”

You only have to read the book I highlighted on a separate thread “The Duellists” to understand that nothing he does or says, nothing, is not done without a calculation. Just as his bleating about deserving an award for being the “best behaved manager” is a pleas to grab some attention after he fears him and his team being eclipsed by Pep and Manchester City.

The only award he deserves is “Twat of the Season”

His bloviating at his press conference clearly went to another level
