Re: English Football
i fancied spurs to get a draw and im glad they won in the end with loads of drama *cough* gattuso!
i reckon it'll be a 2-1 win for barca tonight tho :/
Gattuso is entertainment packaged. I was just disappointed he didn't give Crouch a proper slap, and I had to laugh at the yellow card being given for one of his milder moments. His reaction was priceless though. When you watch the replay the ref actually looks likes he's having second thoughts because he's scared.
Flamini was lucky to stay on the pitch. If it had been a PL game he definitely would have gone. He has some welcome waiting for him at Whiteheart Lane.
But I honestly have to say I was disgusted to see the goal dissallowed. The “push” was minimal and Ibrahimavich was moving away from Dawson so there was no force. He was stupid to put his hands on another player but Dawson still dived. You can clearly see he lands on his feet and just lets his legs go limp.
And if that “push” was considered a foul then I can't understand how the ref can not give a penalty against Woodgate because as the ball comes back in to the box he has a Milan player (couldn't see who) completely pinned with his arms around the guys waist. The ref is staring at the two of them and can clearly see the Milan player trying to move towards the ball and being fouled but does nothing.
Pushing and shoving are commonplace in the box but if you're going to call foul on one incident then you have to do so for everything. The selective reffing that's happening at the moment is bollox.
