No mention of this on sportscene last night (surprise surprise)

Does anyone have footage of it? A lot more should be being made of this tackle as it was potentially a leg breaker and the ref was right in front of it.


Studs up, late and from behind. Not a red card v Rangers....

He's a dirty big bastard. Astonishing that some on here had no issues with his signing, nothing more than a shite Christian Nade.
I don't think he's dirty, it's more he's just a big clumsy player who is terrible with ball at feet with no timing at all, he's a big lump who doesn't control his body well.

To think some folk wanted us to sign him. Terrible player.

It was not a good tackle at all and could possibly have been a red. There was a thread last week on the 2 st johnstone red cards v the sheep and i said the 2nd red they got was the standard tackle against us and wouldnt see a player sent off v us and it was very much like that tackle.

Think I really have to see it again as I’m pretty sure it was late and caught his standing foot. Quite surprised folk are saying it was only a yellow

It was a clumsy, frustrated challenge. I will back davis response to it, he just got up and got on with it. no drama.

now if that had been a player in blue making that challenge...hmmm

Scored the same number all season that Stewart scored in 5 minutes. And he makes Chris Sutton look like a concrete block in his ability to remain on his feet.

Poor tackle.

Hopefully the last time anyone mentions him for us. If he never had strength then he'd have absolutely nothing about him.

Holds it up and does nothing with the ball. Doesn't score much, doesn't bring other players into play and seems to want to shield the ball for 5 mins every time it comes near him.

Felt the yellow was correct at the time. More just the clumsiness of a poor footballer than anything else for me. Haven’t watched it back though

From my seat in the Copland, those saying ‘clumsy’ are being very generous. There was clear water between Davis playing the pass and the Hearts player flying into the tackle.
Apologies for the cliche, but if that was Morelos, there’d have been numerous angles shown on Sportscene.

Does the fact that it wasn’t intentional make it not a red?

It was an angry, reckless challenge nowhere near the ball that could have left Davis seriously injured. It’s a fücking red.
 
Clumsy challenge but no malice in it.
This he is just woeful, he tried to tackle him on his left foot when the ball is on his right. A pish player. Still probably should've been a red, pretty much any other league it's a red

While not as bad Whelan's challenge on Davis in the 90th is actually designed to hurt him. 5 nil down, Davis is turning towards his own goal, game is pretty much over, whelan charges full pelt through davis, with no intent to take the ball. That is malice

One of our players does that, red card. Anybody against us, yellow.
That’s the way it works in Scottish football and has for some time.

If it’s a reckless challenge then it’s a yellow. That’s the rule.

But dangerous when he's looking to hurt someone, like he was with Davis.
