  1. We should expect this more as the season progresses and have to find a way of dealing with it.

    He did - and in the 74th, 79th, 83rd and 89th minutes! A stallion is our Rudolph.
  7. Red Card?

    Kompany came in from so far away and with the ball on Vardy's wrong side and going away from the defender that he had virtually no chance of collecting anything but the striker. I have little doubt that even though he would only have had a split second to decide, a defender of Kompany's experience knew exactly what he was doing and the risk ( red card) attached, but calculated that a player of Vardy's pace would otherwise be though on goal and more than likely to score, The classic "taking one for the team".
  8. Red Card?

    Isn't the definition something along the lines of preventing a clear goal scoring opportunity? If so, then for someone with Vardy's pace, having cleared the last defender even 30 yards from goal would be a clear goal scoring opportunity - the likelihood of the player scoring doesn;t come into the equation juts that he would have a had a clear opportunity to score. Remember the uproar years ago when Martin Allen was clear through on goal even though well outside the box in the FA Cup Final against Man U when he was chopped down from behind in the classic "professional" foul. It was exactly this type of offence that this punishment was devised to deter.

  13. Red Card?

    He appears to have no chance of getting the ball so the challenge was calculated to wipe out the striker if the tackle failed, so deliberate in my eyes. The change to the red card rule was to avoid a player being over punished i.e. penalty and red card. This challenge was outside the penalty area , so no penalty kick resulting, but denied a clear goal scoring opportunity so would appear to be a fairly clear red card, even under the new rules. What would have happened had the same offence happened at the there end of the pitch, i.e. had Wes Morgan taken Aguero out, in the same situation? Can only speculate, with no proof, but my thinking is that the ref would more likely have red carded the defender, as there does seem to be a bias in favour of the "big" clubs.
