I actually agree with Arfield. Doesn’t make it any less of a red card though.
Not what I said, and if that is how you wish to interpret that, then fair enough!"Be a hell of a lot smarter". In other words give an opinion that you agree with.
Have you actually read the article regarding Broadfoot? He says Defoe has taken a “wee dive” and that Defoe told the referee it wasn’t a penalty. Hardly anything in that to get annoyed about.Are you at the wind-up or on drugs? Clubfoot today calling Defoe a “Diver” McKenna of the sheep, various Killie players and more all calling out our players for “over the top” tackles. Our manager just came out and said that he hopes for some “consistency” and he basically contradicts him. Again. This is why we as a club get shat all over. Too gullible by far. So yes. He should shut the fk up and say nothing especially when there are concentrated campaigns agains our players. Or did you miss the Morelos ban and the offer of a ban to McGregor through your drug haze?
Not long now until Defoe is labelled a serial diver by the media and is cited for diving.I see, as predicted, the Defoe “diving” issue has now become centre stage.
Whilst what I can genuinely say is one of the worst dives I have ever seen by Burke in his Rings strip has been completely ignored by the media.
Without a doubt.Follows on from the deafening silence for the club, while we have opposing players and managers making derogatory remarks about us left, right and centre we’re still doing the nicey nicey routine.
We really are the most naive clubs in football.
I don't see what he adds to our midfield any way I just don't rate him.And how exactly did he do that?
Don’t count on it. In these matters our club offers up as much resistance as the French did against the Nazi Panzer Divisions .... absolutely clueless in that department... and the reason why we are, where we are. The club have left the propaganda and attacks on us go unchallenged so that we now sit in a massively hostile environment.There's no doubt jack would have got sent off for that type of challenge and if he didnt there would be a mhedia campaign by rabids like Sutton and Hartson and others to get the compliance officer involved.
Something is rotten and hopefully people upstairs at Ibrox will fight back big time.
Okay Biggles, thanks for the input. 90% of us on here are wrong and you’re right. Got it.Have you actually read the article regarding Broadfoot? He says Defoe has taken a “wee dive” and that Defoe told the referee it wasn’t a penalty. Hardly anything in that to get annoyed about.
Don’t tend to touch the substances on a week day but I doubt even being in a “drug haze” as you called it would make you seem intelligent.
As did your comment about “professionals tend not to call out other professionals”, eh, actually they do, and I cited examples of this on my other post. And whether or not clubfoot accused Defoe of a “wee dive” what’s the difference? “Wee dive” “big dive” either way he accused him of diving.Not at all. This is a discussion forum and therefore I expect there to be a difference in opinion.
Your rambling drivel about a “drug haze” deserved the response it got.
You’re being unrealistic if you expect Arfield to come out with a comment like that.As did your comment about “professionals tend not to call out other professionals”, eh, actually they do, and I cited examples of this on my other post. And whether or not clubfoot accused Defoe of a “wee dive” what’s the difference? “Wee dive” “big dive” either way he accused him of diving.
Here’s a response Arfield could have given, especially after what the manager (his boss) said about the incident. “As the gaffer says, all we’re asking for is consistency. If that tackle has been made by a Rangers player we’d still be hearing about it.”
Simple and to the point. Instead of giving the Compliance Taig an out like he did. So yes, they should shut the fk up and stop giving ammunition to our enemies, who are numerous. But again, you seem to be okay with that.
Too near the truth for comfort. Well said.Powers done Dorrans..no action. I wonder how many times this thug has been yellow carded in games v us.I can't think of a game he was not booked.This thug seems hell bent on doing one of our players every time he walks on the pitch.Maybe it's time the authorities had a word and asked him what problems he has with Rangers.Or maybe it's just where he's from and what stock he comes from causing the problems.Maybe it's just sectarianism behind his seemingly hatred for all things Rangers
Playing through the pain barrier is all well and good, an admirable trait. That game against Hibs at Ibrox was ridiculous though when he tried to play on in the second half hobbling about, could have cost us big time.Don't particularly want any Killie players being cited before they play the tarriers next weekend.
On another note, I see Gerrard praising Arfield and Goldson for being "old school" style players and playing through the pain barrier for the good of the team against Aberdeen and Killie.
Both of them are vital to our success this season and fair play to them both for putting their bodies on the line and putting the team ahead of themselves.
