Once Bruno leaps into the air, even while with possession and putting a move on, that’s a 50/50 ball

in your experience it is fine for a defender to make a sliding challenge nowhere near the ball and make contact with an attacker’s leg, impeding progress?

Thats not what happened. Defender didn't slide, just a very slight lunge. He was still standing on both feet. Was in a good position to stop the progress of the ball. The attacker jumped over the ball and landed 6" up the defender's leg. Easy foul committed by the attacker.

re: Worst dives of 2020
He didn’t jump at all. He did a roulette and at that point he had both feet in the air and the ball around the defender. At that point Fernandes is supposed to be allowed to land and if not and contact us made to his person it’s a foul. The guy stuck his leg out nowhere near the ball and directly in the path of Fernandes’ body.

For example, let’s say someone is dribbling and a defender slides in so the player chips the ball over the defenders body then proceeds to jump over the defender, then another defender comes across and the ball passes him, so instead he just puts his leg where the player is falling, and the player lands on the defenders leg, that’s not a foul on the attacker. I don’t see why you think this should be a foul on Fernandes’ it would never be called that way

A 50/50 ball that the defender completely missed while Fernandes still has a foot on the ball?

Bruno Fernandes and Harry Maguire can bite each other’s dicks off and bleed out

So... he jumped. If both feet leave the ground, and they go high enough to go over the ball, and you do a 180 while in the air, you jumped.

The ball never went around the defender.

The defender challenged past the ball and miss it, the ball didn’t go past his entire body but for purposes of the challenge the ball was around him. If he didn’t make contact with Fernandes then the ball would have been easily past him

What about Mane in this video

He has four as well but doesn’t get his due credit from Olddawg who’s got an unhealthy obsession of Bruno

I almost used mane but figured Bruno would get more bites from United fans

Mane is more embarrassing in this thread than Bruno, but both are pretty bad.

Neymar is also terrible.

They can start doing that whenever they finally start penalizing people in situations where the defender fouls an attacker in the area but the attacker doesn’t go down

re: Worst dives of 2020
I agree with this. The tackle attempt could be a straight red and if the forward avoids the tackle by jumping out of the way they should go back and cars to defender

The one against Leicester is a legit penalty, but the others by Mane are absolutely shocking. Thankfully they're so bad the referee doesn't give them in most of these cases.
