Neymar made a meal of it (as always), but falling over and tripping someone is a penalty even if it is accidental.I officially give up on the Champions League
I've never seen someone slip up and fall and have someone trip over their head only to have a penalty awarded against them.
Technology will not help for the Meunier penalty.Tired of talking about them. Bring in technology and reset the clock
Di Maria was denied the most blatant pen (and red for Mascharano) I've seen in years. Tie over.Technology will not help for the Meunier penalty.
If you look at the replay you see that Meunier makes a movement with his left arm whil falling, this catches Neymar...is it deliberate? Who knows. But in the new rule this doesn't matter.
Same with the second penalty, the PSG player does touch Suarez, i'm all for giving an advantage to the attacker...to me this is a penalty...
If i remember well PSG should have got a penalty in the first half.
It's time to discuss about the rules concerning penalties and hand balls.
But let's be fair, PSG have only to blame themselves for being out, they were dreadfull yesterday...and this against a Barcelona that wasn't even good. That sixth goal was something very special, quite a finish by Sergi Roberto.
Yeah. If the FA can ban players for even more games later on after a game with a red card then they should ban the divers too if they find it diving. That would make the players think twice if they dive or not.Just make a rule where you can ban a player after a match for an obvious dive, based on video.
IMO I thought Moses should of been booked.Chelsea-Spurs: semi-final of the FA Cup.
Defending is also an art and thus i think Chelsea deserved to win this match. Scoring 4 goals against this Spurs defense is no mean feat.
And of course as a Spurs fan i'm biased...
Was it a penalty?
Of course it was a stupid tackle from Son (a player i like a lot, who is great this season, so i feel for him).
And yes there would certainly haverr been contact if Moses hadn't dived beforte the contact (or am i blind?). But (unless i'm blind) there was no actual contact.
It is perhaps a moral penalty and imo this does not take anything away from Chelsea's win...but what do you people think, was it really a penalty?
