It wasn’t but alright

Contact doesn’t always mean it’s a foul , when will people understand that ?
It’s reckless. Which I still think is deemed as a foul?

Honestly when I saw it live at full speed I thought Pogba was going to get a red card.

Still, Souness losing his shit on a weekly basis is hilarious.
Yeah Souness has completely lost the plot tonight.

Beautiful. Souness has lost it though.

There was clearly a touch on the shin pad, because it span around. Leg breaker is a joke though. He was sliding about a meter away from where Neves was stood, but Neves then swung his foot towards the ball. Souness is talking about “doing him”. Horrible punditry.

Yes I can hear you Clem Fandango!
I cannot help but remember Souness in a press conference after the Dyer and Bowyer fight saying their behaviour was indefensible, before defending it by saying the referee was very poor and that's what led to them punching each other.

He's so bitter it's halarious. His bitterness cause United won, on top of his hatred for Pogba isn't showing at all here :lol:

I thought it was a red card at first viewing. On the replay, he didn't even touch him. Neves only went down once he saw the ref was nearby...should have been a yellow for him if anything.

I don't believe a single word they're saying. This is classic Sky trying to create an emotive narrative.
Was the same against Southampton when Bruno was fouled. They created the narrative that he was soft

Makes a change from him complaining Pogba isn't making any effort to win the ball back I suppose :lol:

He missed the ball and caught his shin. It was a foul but you could only see it from one angle.
He got as much of the ball as Neves’ shin.

Pogba has a castle class mansion inside that mans head with 5 courts, 8 pools, acres on acres of land and he pays £0.00

Unanimous it wasn't a foul on Bruno last week. Unanimous it was a foul this week. Says it all.

Comedy gold. Not sure I've ever seen a pundit so triggered by a specific player likr Graeme with Pogba. Absurd that he is even insinuating Pogba wanted to do him.

It was a 50/50 , he scraped his shin pad , get a grip
What does “50/50” have to do with anything?? Pogba was late and caught him on the shin, it’s an easy foul.

don’t give a sh*t personally, I’ll take any win, but to pretend that’s not a foul is madness. I’d be livid if that was against us, esp after Bruno last week.

that bit when he tried to commentate on it as they showed the replay and said "look, its as clear as..." then had to change his words when there was nothing he could actually be clear about

I think he said he didn’t mean it but it ended up a leg breaker.

His foot has gone over the ball that’s all, no malice at all, it’s a 50-50.

Because Neves won the ball and took two or three steps the ref I think assumed he won the 50-50 and that there must have been nothing in it (the tackle.)

A bitter old man. If that was Jordan Henderson and not Paul Pogba, he’d be saying it’s not a foul and the goal stands.

He's just a funny, bitter old man.

I cringe at these "heart attack", "burst a nerve" on live tv comments, stay classy.

Dig up stupid!
Regarding the foul isn't this the perfect example in the change of approach this year.

Does Pogba catch him? - definitely.
Is it enough to bring him down? - obviously not. Neves himself admited that if the ball was there he'd have carried on playing. In that case the contact can surely be deemed insufficient for a foul. Despite the contact Neves was happy to play on until he realised he'd given the ball away.

Personally I think it's a foul but I think the ref is justified in allowing the game to continue given the above

Pogba doesn't touch the ball, only Neves. It's glancing contact, but it's plain to see on video, not debatable.
He does, he skims the top of the ball. As much contact as he made with Neves’ shin.

He backtracked slightly. Originally he said if you go into a challenge like that you do so with the intention for catching someone.

it’s a 50:50 tackle that they’re both stretching for the ball, he barely tickled his shin pad.

Neves didn’t even think it was a foul until he realised he’d lost the ball. trying to ref the game for him.

if he nailed him studs in in the centre of his shin then sure bad tackle, but he didn’t.

Doesn’t make it a foul.
Exactly and that's been the narrative this season with the refs. They've been letting contact go, not all contact means a player will fall over and cause the other player to be at a disadvantage. You can see Neves could clearly carry on playing

The ability to carry on playing doesn’t determine whether it’s a foul or not.
