That's a red all day long.

 

I agree DZ there is no way we could win an appeal looking at that footage

you guys really think, adama pushing a guy off him, thats actually grabbing him illegally anyway is a red?

 

its not like hes punched him or threw him to the ground, he literally pushes his arm out without any body weight and oviedo went down like he'd been hit by joshua. the reason adama was so angry is because the cheating mackem *** has conned him into being sent off over the usual penalty box handbags. we have been conned and now our own fans are saying its a red? those who think its a red are very wrong.

I hope you are right Kev but the footage I saw showed Adama raise his hand into the face of Oviedo and push him to the ground. I don't think he will get away with it

He pushes him just below the throat... The very top of the chest

 

I would like to see different angles of footage though...

It's very difficult to see what Oviedo physically does there. It's clear he's trying to rile him up but there's no laws against that. Can't tell from that angle if he really is trying to poke him in the eye, hopefully if he is then justice comes to Oviedo retrospectively.

 

As far as we're concerned though, Adama rises to it and just reacts without even thinking. I don't think he's aiming for his face in particular, I think he just pushes out... but that is where he catches him. Straight red card, no doubt about it.

Aguero got off with a push to the face of a fan just over a week ago due to the fact he was provoked, i imagine that will make up part of our appeal

With a fan you can make the argument very easily that you didn't know if they were a threat to you or not, that's not very easy when it's a fellow professional.

If someone is indeed poking you in the eye what is he expected to do? Ask him politely to stop?

 

Report it to the referee. Make sure he's keeping an eye on Oviedo. I'm afraid Sunderland played him like a fiddle and what evidence we have suggests they did it within the laws of the game.

The question is would it really matter. I belive we have a club in the championship fit for the size of the town. Get use to the idea we are not a premier club anymore and we may in the future have forays but we are not big enough to maintain momentum. The championship will provide more wins than we can expect in the premier so with prospects of decent games we should see larger crowds. Pulis for me was a suprise choice but there again over the years nothing from SG surprises me anymore. Football has become far to expensive for many other than elite clubs with money to burn, we are not one.

 

There's probably 10 teams in the Premier league that are historically no bigger than us, they've just been ran a lot better.

 

The difficulty is that there are also probably 10 teams outside of the premier league who are historically bigger than us. And all of them want to be in the top flight. There are only 20 places and we have no divine right to be there.

It's a soft red but sadly in the current laws of the game probably is a red. It's going to be interesting what happens with the appeal it could be as bad as five games missing (isn't he on a 4 game ban as it is). Jack Wilshere had a red card ban reduced earlier in the season for similar so there is a possibility of that. Although we as Boro fans saw Aliadiere given extra for a frivolous appeal.

    • That's fine I haven't taken it as a dig. Of course stats can be misleading. But I think in the right context (which is important) they can certainly help either shape an opinion or backup what you have seen firsthand. Personally you need a balance of visually seeing things within a game of football, and also the statistics to back that up or disprove, if you catch my drift. Didn't Spence have Danjuma to cover in the Bournemouth game? (who I think is also a very good player, much like Brooks). I wasn't able to see the Bournemouth game in full, so I cannot pass much judgement on Spence/Johnson. I did watch the Watford game and personally they were both pretty average in that game. In my opinion if we went to a back 4, I think Dijksteel could slot into the right back position fairly comfortably. But I think we'd need a more "solid" left back.
    • So do you know if we are actively after roberts? Just that warnock made out he wasnt 
    • Thanks mate, honestly not having a dig at you but for me stats can be misleading (sorry CT). You are coming up against different type of players so it can restrict how you play which inevitably will affect stats for example Johnson came up against Brooks at the weekend so he was always going to be more disciplined in his play. I really don't rate Johnson for the record, but he gets a lot of hate on here which annoys me when I see him as the better of the 2 wing backs since lockdown. Ideally I'd love to drop the fu***g wingback formation and go to a flat back 4 but that would mean a whole new full backs and attackers. Anyways I will stop here because I am coming off thread! Who's next through the door? I'm just clinging onto hope that somehow we can persuade man City in freeing Roberts up on loan again. He's the difference for me.
    • Jen, thanks for attending tonight. I will get some sort of MSF communication sorted this week announcing OneBoro is joining the group as a new permanent member.    For info I will get the minutes typed up and circulated this week. 
    • Statistically (if you believe them), Johnson and Spence have made the same amount of tackles (5), the same amount of interceptions (3) too. Spence has a slightly lower tackle %. They've both blocked the same amount of crosses too (1). Johnson has a pass completion of 50%, Spence has a pass completion of 65%. They've both made the same amount of key passes (1). They've both made the same amount of successful crossed (1), but Spence has a successful cross % almost double Johnson's. Just some unbiased stats, to show actually statistically they are similar as it stands.
