re: Chelsea v. Man City - Battle of the Non-ManUre Giants

After seeing the replay, I thought that Balo was trying to put it around Luiz and get to the other side. Once Luiz stepped into him, he went down rather than stumble toward a ball he wouldn't get. It's not a dive because his reaction was consistent with the force of Luiz's tackle. IMO, it should have been a free kick for Man City

I never said he was trying to move away. He stood his ground which he is entitled to do. If it was a basketball game it would have been the most obvious charge of all time.

As far as kicking the ball around an opponent, I guess you are the one that doesn't watch soccer, because players with pace do this all of the time.


Right, when there is space to play the ball into. Not at the top of the 18 when surrounded by five players.

Right now, you are no better than Man U fans that think they do no wrong.


We do pretty much everything wrong at the moment.

I'd agree with this. The only thing that you haven't seen is Mario actually grabbed his face like he was hit there, but there was no contact to the face.

That was my problem with the play. It wouldn't have looked like a dive at all if he wouldn't have grabbed his face.

Yep, the Suarez problem, embellish a foul Unnaturally and it's not going to be called because the ref thinks you dove

In fact, if someone is running full speed towards you, it doesn't take much to kick the ball out front and run around him.


This is just fricking retarded. Of course that happens. but at the top of the 18 with a baracade of players that he was never going to get through? surely you don't believe he was doing that.

they were both playing for the contact. sheeeit

I should probably retire. Clearly, I will never top that post.

Today has been a struggle.

It's tough knowing that you have peaked in your internet career.
