Fred is an incompetent DM. His ideal position is up front in the midfield.
It doesn't need to be. This is just a myth. A foul after a shoot or pass is a foul nevertheless.
It doesn't matter. You can't tackle someone with your studs on their shin regardless of their position relative to the ball. If a player had done that on another player that's nowhere near the ball you'd call it a foul because you can't do that.
If a player does a give and go in the middle of the pitch and after he releases the ball he gets hacked down from behind nobody would say that it isn't a foul. They'd call it a late tackle and a clear foul. Why is there a difference if a shot's taken compared to a pass being made?
Fair enough. It's an interesting one alright, but a horrible, late challenge so seems deserved.
Fair enough. Watching it again it did look like dangerous play.Why would you need to stop a goalscoring opportunity to give away a penalty? It's a bad tackle inside the box with the ball still in play. You don't see them given often, but maybe that's because the ball usually goes out of play immediately.
Exactly. It is like you can kill the player after he made a shot. Clear penHow in the feck is that not a penalty, he wiped Rashford out. Anywhere else on the pitch and that would be a clear foul. It's a foul. Staggered some of you think it wasn't.
Pogbas been a bit slow so far, need him to wake up a tad.
I'm not arguing that it isn't a pen as per the rules. It's a foul in the box so it's a pen.What would you book him for if you wouldn't give a penalty? Either it's a foul or it's not. If it's a foul and a yellow then you have to give a pen considering the incident took place on the pitch with physical contact between two players and the ball was in play.
