If youíre the player behind and thereís a tangle of legs then itís your fault & a foul
only exception I can think of to that is when the Ďfouledí player swerves across the other playerís path, which didnít happen here
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?
