I am no fan of either side,Jose Mourinho or racism.However the behaviour of Antonio Rudiger in getting Son sent off was poor.Now I know Son kicked out but Rudiger was rolling around like he’d been shot then turns round to make sure the referee (who needed VAR to give an obvious penalty) was getting the red card.It is a shame that Football has come to this following so quickly after the death of Martin Peters a great guy from a great era.

Agreed it should be a yellow card for Rudiger for play acting/ unsportsmanlike behaviour and a red card for Son for stupidity!
I am a Spurs fan, but I have to be honest, Sonny has no one to blame but himself. Sure, Rudiger play acted, but Son should never have kicked out.

Also, before blaming the ref, you should remember that VAR gave the red card, not the referee.
How come it was a Penalty,nowhere near the Penalty Box. Are you sure you seen the incident.?

I think he was referring to the Gazzaniga foul for the penalty. Two different incidents.
It's about time the over reaction of these players should be lampooned with special awards like the Oscars for best performance.

But it hasn't only just come to this. It's been like it for donkeys' years. I gave up watching football when the repeated sight of players falling over, rolling across the pitch about six times and writhing in agony, clutching an imagined serious injury, having been blown over by the draught from an opponent passing six feet away all got a bit boring. This was compounded when the said victim would look up and wink at anybody who was watching, having ensured he'd secured a penalty, then jump up to his feet, dust himself off whilst being congratulated by his teammates. The beautiful game? Nah.

As you say, a great shame with the passing of Martin Peters just announced. I saw Peters play many times, mainly at White Hart Lane, and, if measured by conduct, many of today's players are not fit to clean his boots.
You don't tend to get so much play acting in womens football. When they are down it is usually a proper injury not a imaginary one.
'an imaginary one'
They'll soon learn. Especially if silly money becomes involved.
Well said,New Judge.
Mine was a reply to your previous Post,N.J.
I'm no big fan of football, but did like to watch the world cup, when it came around, but now every match starts with them trying to cripple each other for the first 30 mins. The likes of Peters played good clean football.
Love your reply at 1606 NJ, my feelings exactly.

You’re right Mozz at 14.56 about both Son only having himself to blame and VAR giving the red card.However VAR is spoiling the game taking an age to discover someone’s armpit was offside.
I think modern day footballers are almost taught how to dive at the merest hint of any physical contact, it's a shame for the game, I don't bother watching any football on tv now.
It's about time the over reaction of these players should be lampooned with special awards like the Oscars for best performance.

when a footballer wrote off his car all on his own,
the hack reporting it wrote
the police attending were surprised that he had not cast himself on the verge beating the grass n insisting that the oncoming car had done it
Diving used to be a thing only continental players did but a lot of England's finest use to go over at the slightest touch: Owen, Rashford, Dele, Sterling, Kane).
You will never see rugby players behaving in such a manner. My SIL attended a commemorative match at Leicester city in the week to mark the death of its owner who died in helicopter crash a year ago just outside the ground. He and his father are football mad and season ticket holders.
Put them on a rugby pitch. They wouldn't last five minutes!
Don't think they would dare step on to the pitch Boaty, for fear of ruining their hair styling lol.
