“Lisandro Martinez has sustained an injury to the medial collateral ligament in his knee and is expected to be out of action for at least eight weeks.”

Crap

Just read an article on the Optus Sport app. The English FA are considering introducing a Blue Card from next season in the FA Cup and the Women’s FA Cup. A blue card would incur a 10-min “sin bin” style penalty, specifically for incidents that are judged as professional fouls, like tugging the shirt of an attacking player that prevents him/her from breaking clear, or for dissent towards a referee, where a yellow card seems insufficient but a red card too great of a penalty. Apparently has been trialled at local level in competitions in England.

I can foresee no possible way that that just increases the inconsistencies of decisions. None.

Imagine the time wasting that would go on for the 10 minutes the player is off. You’d have 10 players going down with cramp until the player is back on.

Ange et al not at all keen on the idea.

Goooners all over West Ham 2 nil up after 41mins with all the possession. They look good.

Huge win for United. Actually gives them a sneaky chance now to catch Villa and Spurs for top 4. McTominay with another winner!

Great to have Mo back. Dennis Cometti would have loved that pass to set MacAllister up for the 2nd. Absolutely centimetre perfect
