    Gray would've been useful for the money paid, what was it £1.5m? Always thought he was quick and skilful, maybe not a starter but a decent back up.

    We have wanted him for some time
    But he does okay same role as Gil
    And we now have a DOF who IMO doesn’t know the players in this league yet

    I don't know if this is correct about referees in general, but it is so wrong. Players shouldn't be punished for freak consequences and shouldn't be let off because a player wasn't injured. Even Elliott sees this when he is the victim.

    Walob. It would make make sense to red card a challenge that was approached in a way that could cause a serious injury rather then penalising the player based on the outcome. If the impact of the tackle is gong to influence the card colour it also encourages feigning injury. We saw it with the screaming to influence it when the stadiums were empty too.
    In the case of Shawcross if he felt he was endangering the player with the tackle it’s a red before the impact on Ramsey is assessed (I can’t remember now but I do seem to remember it was a bad tackle but they may have been due to Whinger)

    Didn't something similar happen to Son against Everton a couple of years back? Ref was originally going to give a yellow, then changed his mind after realising that Gomes was injured?

    Compare the Liverpool one, accidentally broken leg, to zaha throwing punches, ones a red card and one isn't.
    Madness.

    Was about to post the same thing.

    By the justification above, swinging and missing a punch at another player should not receive a red but a tackle ending in injury where the tackling player makes a genuine (but unsafe) attempt for the ball should.

    It's the kind of ridiculous reasoning that makes refereeing so poor across the board.

    Every single tackle or action on a football has the potential to cause an injury even the most innocent challenge. It's a load of bull that the injury is taken into account.

    And then the red was rescinded on appeal. Didn't do us much good in the actual match though with Everton's late equaliser.

    Yeah, Son didn't actually touch the other player, but that's obviously irrelevant to refs when there's an injury. :rolleyes:

    Always is a bit of an exaggeration. He scores like one a season. His next 100 attempts will hit row z.

    I see Leeds appeal against the Red card was rejected.

    It makes absolutely no sense. Peter Walton's comments seem to imply that contact with another player is the only force that can cause an injury, whereas you have the players own momentum / angle or even a freak twist etc. that can sometimes cause an injury even when they are not touched at all.

    I don't necessarily mind if the rules are stupid (if it's consistent), but when they spout absolute rubbish it's kind of annoying.

    It's just my favourite buttplug! There was absolutely nothing wrong with the tackle. It wasn't even a foul. If the Liverpool player gets up afterwords, no one would bat an eylid. No one would claim it to be a free kick! It's just a freak accident, same as Son on Gomez.
    Pathetic that the card isn't rescinded.

    Of course its a foul and red card, in fact he should consider himself lucky not to be banned for life.
    I mean taking the ball off a Liverpool player, how disgusting is that!

    Did Newcastle really pay £40m two years ago for Joelinton?
