You can roll your eyes, but who else consistently gets booked for basic shît like this?He got booked twice within a minute and then sent off for dissent in Russia last season. He needs to learn.
Or alternatively *all* the Euro refs are out to get him.
Well done superfan. What I won't do is get in a pissing competition with you. I am Alfredo's biggest fan, and was merely suggesting he may have said something in Spanish, his language, to the Spanish referee, as some sort of explanation to the baffling yellow card. Maybe he didn't. But if you read the context, maybe on the bus to Braga, you'll eventually understand. If you can't comprehend this, toddle on back over to Kerrydale St.Yes. And I'll continue protesting on the Glaswegian loyal buses from Lisbon to Braga next week.
And again in Bragas stadium.
What I won't be doing though, is throwing any Rangers player under the bus by deciding "he probably swore at the ref in Spanish" for no other reason than to make up complete shite that never happened.
Plenty of goals go through the keepers legs, I'm sure McGregor's one on one was a great save and not classes as a miss because the boy never chipped it?I just wish someone would show Alfie how to chip a baw......
The book on him......
"He always shoots low + hard for the corners"
So opposing keepers are making themselves big + getting down....
Imo he'd have at least another 4 goals if he patiently waited for the keeper to get down...
he could have walked away but why should he? The referee isn't there to be shouted at by Alfredo in any language.he was miles away from the ref, not in his face, Ref couldve turned his back and walked away.
I agree, Braga player should've been sent off, no doubt about that.Call me biased, but I have a bit of an issue with both of these warranting the same punishment.
Got to disagree – you need to ignore the fact that it’s Morelos when assessing it, if that’s Davis/Barisic they don't get booked for that.I agree, Braga player should've been sent off, no doubt about that.
Doesn't make Alfie's any less of a booking though. I have a 5 year old that learns quicker than him mate. Another massive game he's missing. That last night was just complete petulance and stupid in the extreme. A little surprised at so many focusing on what he said. It's the gesture that's done him imo, I doubt the ref even heard him.
But but but it was Morelos fault.This is the Spanish Clancy. I saw him in the Betis v Barca game 2 weeks ago. He booked 10 and sent off 2. He failed to give a stonewall penalty to Barca after Messi was hauled back in the box. He did not take it to VAR either. He was dropped by the Spanish FA for next round of games.
Did Katic get booked for his dissent after the foul on the touchline? No, he never. So why did Morelos? Because he was very unfortunate.No. I’m not cutting him any slack and neither should you. He should know better by now, simple as that.
He’s too important to us to continually miss games. It’s getting beyond a joke now.
As I've said in another post and has been said by another poster - why didn't Katic get booked if that's a yellow card?I’ve seen plenty of players get booked for similar over the years.
Then why did Katic not get booked?Your never going to get away with yelling at the ref like that unfortunately how many times must he be told about controlling the aggression?
I’ve not seen what katic done you got a clip?As I've said in another post and has been said by another poster - why didn't Katic get booked if that's a yellow card?
You might have seen players get booked for it, but you sure as hell get away with it more often than not.
I listened to Mike Dean on the Peter Crouch podcast (I was going to start a thread on it), and found some of his insight fascinating.You can roll your eyes, but who else consistently gets booked for basic shît like this?
His reaction is split second and not continuous, it's not really excessive, he doesn't approach or crowd the referee, he hadn't been doing it persistently.
It's too easy to resort to 'he's always petulant' or 'he shouldn't give the ref the opportunity' but each match should be refereed in isolation – a referee shouldn't be more prone to booking him because he's moany in other games which seem to be what's happening.
Us continually saying 'aye but it's no' fair' won't stop him being suspended mate. If you dont think Alfie needs to change anything, what is it you think we should do, out of interest?Got to disagree – you need to ignore the fact that it’s Morelos when assessing it, if that’s Davis/Barisic they don't get booked for that.
You've got me wrong, I'm not saying he doesn't need to change but there's no denying referees are much quicker to draw cards with Morelos than most other players. I don't know what referee's do pre-match, but it makes me wonder if referees are given a note beforehand on players to keep an eye on.Us continually saying 'aye but it's no' fair' won't stop him being suspended mate. If you dont think Alfie needs to change anything, what is it you think we should do, out of interest?
