Boro vs Norwich City (a) 0-1

Recommended Posts

So in the end they actually did the right thing. It wasn't a straight red.

 

I think Borodane is right here. When you watch the replay, Gestede clearly gets to the ball first, and plays it. His momentum/other leg then comes through, which I think makes it look worse. However, physically I don't think there's too much else that he could do when going for that ball with full commitment.

 

I know you have to be 'in control' these days, but I don't think the tackle was reckless. I agree with Dane... and the FA that it wasn't a straight red. As such not a ban!

 

[Personally] I think it looks worse than it is.... but each to their own:

It was a straight red. Studs up and into the players ankle. No question. That's a red card.

No. Humpty has spoken. Therefore there can be no discussion.

Were you even at the game? If not, your opinion isn't worth the same as mine, or anything at all to be honest.
