    You're right. 90% Vardy got there first and hit the ball, 10% the other guy was late. It definitely should have been a foul on Vardy.

    100% it wasn't a tackle by Vardy. It could perhaps be classified as a late challenge by their player seeing that Vardy hit the ball and their player followed through on him.

    Bit hard when another player flies uncontrollably into you... And with the pace of the game, I am not surprised that when a guy gets to a ball ahead of the competition his standing leg might give way after striking the ball.

    Part of the charm of the game that hopefully VAR won't ruin!!

    I'd be shouting for a red as loud as everyone else. And if they gave a yellow, I'd be fine with the game continuing and arguing about it later on here!!

    Jeeez, I guess you've never kicked a ball. So let me explain. Usually, the ball is positioned slightly in front, or inline with your standing leg, often inline with your knee. As per Vardy's position in the picture I posted. If it is behind you, then you're not going to be very successful. So no, he wasn't diving in. The ball was in a good striking position. The other player on the other hand is not near the ball and as you watch the motion he has pulled out of it. Thus they get tangled. It is the other player that isn't in control. Vardy is merely striking the ball hard.

    Let me just pause it for you... Vardy in motion to strike the ball... the other player hardly in shot.

    Vardy was in control. He got there first and kicked the ball. I guess the other guy wasn't in control as he was late to the ball and bundled into Vardy... Puel next game: Guys, don't kick the ball incase an opposition player does a 50:50 challenge and your foot follows through after striking the ball...

    Can we talk about what a tackle is? For me, someone is tackled when they have control of the ball and they are dispossessed The ball was not in control of either player. Vardy got there first and kicked the ball hard. The other player continued their run at Vardy without attempting to kick the ball - mostly because they were too late to the ball. It wasn't a red.

    Well played by the team. Good tactics by Puel. I think we have a bright future with the young squad and he is known to bring on youth. I can see this is how he wanted us to play last season. I am firmly Puel in. Red or not who cares. I have faith in Iheanacho to do the job. We just don't have any depth if he gets injured. That needs to be looked at. I am sure Puel wanted more strikers. Let's hope the club can deliver.

    Young squad. Nice football. Winning. What's not to like?! Good job Puel. Empower the youngsters and let's embrace the future.

    re. the red card. Vardy is there first to the ball. He kicks the ball, hard. His leg naturally follows through. Not a red.

    As much as I like Chilwell, that was typical Chilwell.
