    Weird, sure looks like he's challenging for the ball. And nobody except some Leicester fans are disputing this sending off. The club has accepted it as well.

    He definitely needed pace to kick the ball away before Doherty got there, for sure. But whether he needed it or not is not important for what came afterwards, which is a red card offence in putting an opponent at risk. Studs are the (now) plastic parts on the bottom of a football boot that dig into the ground to offer more traction.

    Here's the actual image of them both challenging for the same ball. You can't be serious and tell me that is not a challenge. Vardy is just about to make contact, Doherty's foot is maybe a couple of inches away at most. Vardy's force in his swing took him studs up into the side of the knee of his opponent, endangering him during this challenge. It ticks every box for a red card. I agree, Vardy is unlucky, this is the one time in a hundred where his closing down like this causes damage to an opponent, but it happened.

    Because he followed through with his studs up into the side of the knee of his opponent, getting himself sent off in the process. These are the rules. They aren't subjective. And your instance there would not be a red card if Iheanacho is in possession of the ball, the rules state explicitly that it must be a tackle or a challenge, Vardy's was a challenge for the ball, this make-believe scenario about Iheanacho supposedly would not be.

    He's not supposed to kick the ball with such ferocity and negligence that he follows through with his studs up into the side of someone's knee?

    New training ground announced

    I'm not a million miles away and I can't see why a new training ground would cause more of a risk than already exists. Seems like an attempt by any means for the council to alter the junction.

    But it does. Vardy's actions put Doherty at risk. The act of him following through that challenge with such force (with his studs up) and making contact at the knee is complete grounds for a red. Where is this nonsense that because Doherty was coming in after Vardy, it must not be a red card? If he continued through with his challenge and planted his leg, Vardy probably would have snapped his knee. This isn't any part of the rules from the FA. It's not even subjective. Doherty had to be subbed off and treated. He endangered an opponent and was rightfully sent off.

    The blue-tinted specs are real.

    Southampton (A) pre match

    An underlap is where the full back goes inside of the winger, rather than the outside.
  10. The look on Jose's face is priceless.
  11. Yeah, average age of our starting XI is 25 years. Feels like a really good time for the club.

    Vardy going in for a 50/50 was not him challenging for the ball? Well, LCFC disagrees with you, given Puel said it was definitely a red.

    Except the rule states that you cannot put your opponent in danger, Vardy did that, as such it is a red card.

    Yeah it was me, but you understand for me to hold one view about Wolves doesn't mean I hold the alternate view about Leicester, right? That's pretty basic. I don't think Wolves played that well, I also don't think Leicester played well. Not a hard concept to grasp. Wolves had one clear chance this game, we had none, yet we won 2-0, I agree. On the balance of it we did not deserve that, but me saying Wolves were not that good does not mean I think Leiceser were just because we won. And for the record, they did not have more clear chances than Leicester did last week.
