I know that the Tarkowski one it’s the type of challenge that we don’t really want to be a straight red, and if Godfrey had done it on Salah we’d be purring, but as Rafa said he took the ball but the ankle was behind it. Even if you accept it as a fair challenge there is nothing stopping the referee from going toward the incident, and telling Tarkowski that he would allow it but to be very careful because that type of challenge is dangerous. You can demonstrate control of the match and attention to player safety without whipping out a yellow card.
But he’s a shit ref, so no surprises there.
Anyway, So glad to see us have a little fight and emerge from a physical confrontation with 3 points and a chorus of “ole’s”.
