Xavi hadn't had the benefit if the yanks video. If he had he would think differently.

Every Madrid player near the incident went immediately to the referee.

The referee hadn't seen the video but showed exactly why he is one of the best in the game.

Imagine a Barca player defending Madrids opponents.

Finally when did he say this...did he just randomly offer his opinion or did an english reporter specifically ask him.

Btw i asked a St Mirren player how Raith Rovers were doing a couple of years ago. He didn't know what league they were in...He had played against them a fortnight earlier ... i would take anything a player said with a huge pinch of salt.

 

So you're now comparing a St Mirren player to once of the best players in the world? 

By logical extension, you're claiming Xavi knows nothing about football

But you also believe what Gazza said.

 

You're not even a good bullshitter, you're tying yourself in knots.


We fought in France, We fought in Spain,
We fought in the Sun and we fought in the Rain,
We took the Kop and Chelsea too,
But what we like most is kicking a blue,
Kicking a blue, kicking a blue,
What we like most is kicking a blue

You realise none of that is true....none of it.

It is just more meaningless nonsense

I know none of it is true in terms of those things not mattering. All of it is true in terms of the points I was making, that you're ignoring all of those things and still trying to claim the complete opposite of reality. Deluded doesn't even cover it.

Dermot Gallagher is the only ref I've seen mentioned in this thread so far.
But just as the former Premier League ref has had his say, so too have former Turkish referees Bülent Yavuz (“Çakır was nearly perfect during the game”) and Bülent Demirlek (“absolutely correct”) offered their opinions and they back the red card.
As does Graham Poll:
"The point people are missing is that the referee is under instruction.
They meet twice a year and get instructions what to do - and that tackle will be highlighted on a regular basis. They will be told time and time again it’s brutality, that you can’t tackle like that because it endangers the safety of opponents.
It becomes serious foul play - look at where the contact is, you’d struggle to argue with that.
Only one offence has to be intentional - handball. It’s not what you mean to do but what you actually do.
He intended to jump that high with his foot raised - that’s intentional. It’s unfortunate, he’s not that kind of player but the referee was doing his job and it is wholly wrong for us to castigate him for doing his job."

The keyword here is tackle. Nani wasn't tackling Arbeloa.

 

The poor horse is well and truly beaten to death this thread. :(

Ain't that the truth.

And on that bombshell, we'll draw a line under the whole match.

 

If Nani was challenging for the ball then yes, it would be a red but he was simply trying to bring it under control. And that's the bottom line
