    Jesus, I didn’t realise the injury was that bad.

    So bad in fact, it’s grafted Neymar’s injured foot from ages ago, onto Andre Gomes’ leg today.

    Wow! Incredible stuff.

    The problem I have with the decision is that Atkinson had shown him a yellow based on his observation of the tackle but without knowledge of the severity of the injury. To then change it is not part of any rule I know. Otherwise every time a challenge leads to serious injury, it should be a red. Plainly, that is not the case and would be illogical.

    Pretty sure that’s not Gomes’ ankle, unless they changed the colour of his shorts.

    I was quoting the tweet because of the close up if Aurier's challenge. It was clearly a bad injury and obvious on the pitch, you wouldn't have seen the reaction we did otherwise.

    I was posting the tweet for the first picture, not the second. I think it was Aurier who injured Gomes.

    Aurier isn’t in contact with Gomes there. The camera angle foreshortens it.

    It’s still funny that Neymars leg got grafted onto Gomes, shorts and all.

    It’s almost like you can’t trust people from Kaduna in Nigeria when on the interweb....

    Different angle.

    Looks like Gomes has already caught his studs in the turf well before any contact with Aurier.

    Studs caught in the turf?

    I missed the challenge during the game because my son was being a bugger. The replay afterwards was cut and didn't show much.

    The fact he'd been elbowed by Gomes minutes before, he speeds up when he notices who has the ball and he has absolutely no chance of getting the ball from the position he tackled from. He didn't mean to injure Gomes but he absolutely intended to foul him.

    He was knocked off balance by Son’s lunge, takes another stride where he plants his right foot (which is where he seems to catch his studs), then his weight is going forward, over his knee but his foot can’t move.

    Then a split second later he clashes with Aurier which certainly doesn’t improve matters, but he’s already done (or at least doing) the damage.

    Hard to tell in truth. Son has some culpability (although no intent to harm), then some rank bad luck for the lad.

    We'll agree to disagree. I think there was intent.

    your assuming
    It’s dangerous to assume anything and IMO wrong
    That’s just my opinion of course

    I 400% agree with all of that.
    And that is exactly why I have concluded that emotions took over - which although wrong, happens.
    Refs are human too and trauma tends to accentuate the decision.
    We don't want the game ref's by robots - but this is a time where a robot would be useful....the robot didn't get used properly.
    The ref got it wrong. But I won't blame him for that.

    I saw that earlier and thought he was saying look... and referring to his eyes
    Not doing a “slant”
