    Or we go down the whole "he said something in Portuguese that *sounds* like a bad word to English people" rathole. Which was a part of the Suarez debacle (but not in Portuguese).

    I don't get why the push in the back outside the pitch isn't a straight red. Surely that's violent conduct, no? Attempting to injure an opponent?
    In a perfect world with adequate (let's even dream of competent) referees it is.

    But this is not that world or that league.

    Straight red for that push. Violent conduct, attempt to injure. Holgate should be charged. And he's pulling out the race card to protect himself from the consequences of his actions. But, as Rob said we're in the parallel universe of the FA so Firmino is likely to banned for life (swarthy furriner that he is).

    When an FA suit uses BTW on twitter it means "Ban the Wog."

    £10 on VVD to score a header @ 14/1. My younger brother had it at 20/1 when he signed (same stake).

    Kop End winner with 2 minutes to go made it all the more sweeter than the profit!
