Euro 2012: The Thread

El Pibe

Recommended Posts

Fucksake, I just went to transfer out Abate for Richard Dunne (because ZM reckons Abate won't start at RB), and it's done it as a transfer for Matchday 2. :(

Is Matchday 2 classed as the next round of group stage matches?

Awful decision that red, would argue neither are fouls let alone yellows.

There's nothing in the first, but you can at least argue for the second. He has cynically blocked off the opposition player... but stupid from the Grecian, he should know what he's risking.

Is this actually true?

I thought that it's a foul if a player deliberately handles the ball. That's it.

Does anybody have the rules to hand?

Yeah, this is right.

A direct free kick is also awarded to the opposing team if a player commits any

of the following three offences:

• holds an opponent

• spits at an opponent

handles the ball deliberately (except for the goalkeeper within his own

penalty area)

A direct free kick is taken from the place where the offence occurred

(see Law 13 – Position of free kick).

Penalty kick

A penalty kick is awarded if any of the above ten offences is committed by

a player inside his own penalty area, irrespective of the position of the ball,

provided it is in play.

Gain an advantage/goal scoring opportunity are irrelevant as to whether a free kick/penalty is awarded.
