Again, he didn't. The player boots the ball, Saville doesn't boot the ball. Therefore he has committed a foul. I don't really see what the issue is with that? If you make a challenge and don't get the ball, while the other player does, then you have committed a foul. You can't slide in between the player and ball but not get the ball especially when that player clearly does.
There’s a really good breakdown here https://sports.stackexchange.com/questions/10719/in-soccer-can-it-be-a-foul-even-if-the-player-gets-to-the-ball-first
if their player makes contact with Saville, then it can only be a foul if careless, reckless or using excessive force. I don’t think that is the case here.
anyway - we were never going up without some decent strikers, so I’m not too gutted. Will be interesting to see whoWarnock signs over the summer.
When you watch this one in real time, the ref completely just blows his whistle because there lad falls to the floor, and it’s so obvious. He literally blows because there lad falls on the floor with his arms up in the air.
Makes me feel sick.
Swansea player goes down holding his ankle and tries to con the ref. Just like they did midweek against Stoke. Copper not batting an eye against is equally as embarrassing. He actually thought the one they had midweek was a penalty 🤯
