Re: Branthwaite decision. Genuine question
aka Anthony Gordon and MatipÖÖ.a coming together.
For all the talk of whether or not there should have been a penalty immediately before the red card, my question is simply should that have been a red card anyway?
From what I saw 2 players were running together. Legs contacted and one fell over. Maybe itís my age but for the majority of my football years there had to be a deliberate foul. Branthwaite didnít pull him back, didnít try and trip him, didnít handball etc.
Surely a game changing red card decision needs to have a clear element of intent. I didnít see that. Ergo not a red card
Or am I talking bollocks?
