'Other Boro stuff'

Recommended Posts

I can understand the referee missing it in real time. I find it harder to understand the assistant also missing it. I find it incomprehensible that repeated post-match viewing of that incident could deem it unworthy of retrospective punishment. That's not me being vindictive, but wild head-high studs damn well deserve censure.

Mogga is blinkered, but the Blackburn fans know what they saw. They were as sickened as we were at the time, when the result wasn't known. Personally, I want Branthwaite to learn from a potentially career ending mistake, not laugh it off and assume it's okay to endanger an opponent like that. God forbid, next time he does that, someone really might lose an eye.

It's maddening, mate. One way or another, the system has *** up. Either the referee has seen it and reported it as a nothing incident and a goal-kick, so retrospective action can't be applied. Or it wasn't reported and they don't feel retrospective action should be applied. Neither of those outcomes is good enough.

Don’t get mad, it’s just one of those things, people see things in different ways. It would be a boring world if we all had the same opinion.

Thing is, as bad as the connection with Fry's face was, which is definitely why I'm still angry about it, that would have been a red card wherever it hit his body, anywhere on the pitch.

You can't make studs up challenges that connect in the modern game.

The classic "woah people don't actually agree with me, better back out with the 'just an opinion bro' point"

doesn't H&S state something along the lines of " by your actions or inactions cause harm or endanger a person" well this is Fry's work place and by not having awareness of his own actions in the vicinity of others he endangered a player. Red card, Penalty not violent conduct so no retrospective required.

the Ref should be the one receiving retrospective action for missing a blatantly dangerous act, when he is there to apply the laws and protect the players.

If the ref doesn't mention it in his report the FA can look at it violent conduct or no..If he deserves a red card on the day, and the three game ban that comes with it, why does he not deserve the 3 game ban after the fact?

I could be wrong - I usually am - but I thought professional sportspeople and athletes were bound by different laws to us plebs. Or does H&S legislation designed to cover offices and factories still apply to footballers?

It's not violent conduct though, it's dangerous play. Violent conduct needs to have perceived intent. I'm fairly sure dangerous play without intent only results in 1 or 2 game bans.

then he deserves the 1 or 2 game ban, whatever the red card would have given him.

Yeh, all reds that aren't violent conduct are 1 game bans as standard now.

He does but it's probably been put in the refs report as been seen as not endangering anyone as ridiculous as that is. The rules are dumb and we can have a whinge about it but this outcome really isn't surprising and I would have actually been more shocked to see something come of it. May as well just move on at this point and try to use it like mourinho would - they're all against us, let's show them what we can do kind of thing.

The ref, the linesman, Mogga and the FA all came to the same conclusion as me, it was an accident which warranted no further action. It’s the hysterical fans on a forum who disagree. 

It's 'serious foul play'. If a player endangers the safety of another via his actions, whether it was intentional or not, its a red card. There's nothing more to it really. It is quite cut and dried.

And to further clarify, the foot enters the 'endangering' position as soon as it goes above his waist, thus considered a 'high boot'. Which it does, thus Serious Foul Play, thus red card. There's no maybe about it, certainly not maybe a yellow, it's a red card offence.

    • Used to wind up the opposition by lighting a Woodbine if he was having a quiet game...  ran across him a few times when I used to go to away games ..  had a "colourful" vocabulary, but always happy to mix with fans and got pleasure from the number of people that acknowledged him.
    • I think people are giving Warnock the benefit of the doubt because he's done what no manager has done in the last decade and bring in quality wide options. Even Karanka, our best manager in that period, played Stuani out wide incessantly. Warnock has actually signed several players with genuine attacking promise, suggesting that the current tactic of hoof it to the (not very) big man up front may not be his long-term approach. Let's face it, Cardiff did more than hoof their way to promotion under him. With some time to bed in, a front four of Kebano, Bolassie, Watmore and Fletcher is mouthwatering, with the likes of NML and Johnson in reserve. The fact Britt and Akpom couldn't hit a cow's *** with a banjo is holding us back, but I don't believe Warnock would have signed the wide creative players he has if his sole tactic in the rest of his time at the Boro is going to involve asking a s**t keeper to hoof it. There has to be more in his long-term plan than that, otherwise he might as well do what Pulis did and play four central defenders and five defensive midfielders. Surely NW needs the summer to see what sort of tune he can wring from this promising (if currently under-delivering) squad? That's why I and probably others are cautiously optimistic about his contract extension.
    • Indeed he was in goal the very first time I watched a Boro game
    • Not sure why I thought you were then unless it was those things and I just assumed you must be.  Cheers anyway.
    • Before my time but heard lots about him.  RIP.
