How Foy ruined the Wigan game for us too.

Recommended Posts

Bunn is out unjustly and the appeal didn''t work.

Snodgrasd picked up his 5th booking for arguing his case that it wasn''t a penalty when it clearly wasn''t.

Holt picked up his 5th booking for what seemed like an honest attempt to get the ball.

Without them a result at Wigan is looking more and more doubtful

Sorry meant to add here''s a list of our current  disciplinary record LinkBradley Johnson is on 7 all the others are 5 or below,If Bradders is booked in each of the next three games he will be automatically suspended.On the second sunday in April the 10 yellow limit is increased for the rest of the season to 15 yellows before a suspension is due.

Was that the two footed tackle into Mignolet''s face? He was luck to stay on the pitch after that ''tackle'' in my opinion.

A lunge like that could have indeed been a red, no chance of getting the ball and an obvious sign of frustration.

Mignolet did him a favour by not making a meal of it, otherwise he''d have been off

I think the important question that needs answering is whether or not Holt & Snodgrass are available for the Wigan game.

Holt kept his body on the ground when trying to get ball. It was always going to be yellow. We would see red almost in every game if that was anywhere near red.

It just looked worse than it was becouse big man went for the ball against goalie who throw his body on the way,

I personaly have never seen red from those situations and sometimes player has really had no chance to get for the ball. In this case Holt even got it out of keepers hands.

[quote user="star_manic"]just looked at your link Zak. only three PL platers are currently suspended, Bunn and Evertons pair, Pienaar and Fellaini. [/quote]

Mignolet had to get straight back up to retrieve the ball before he realised that the ref had blown for a foul. Otherwise, no doubt he would have writhed on the floor like the rest of them.

Worth comparing Mignolets reaction to that challenge and Holts reaction to being ''challenged'' in the S''oton penalty box very late in the game.

I''m sure that''s it - if he hadn''t grabbed the ball, Holt could have scored so no time for play-acting !

Mignolet didn''t writhe around after the challenge from Holt - credit to him for that.

Neither did John Ruddy writhe around after a very similar challenge from Paul Scholes in the last minute of the Man Utd home game. Credit to John Ruddy for that.

It was an attempt for the ball. If someone had the ball at their feet and someone tried to tackle like that, it would be a good tackle. Holt slid in when mignolet was standing up but the contact was made when mignolet dived on the ball. It was an effort to get the ball.
