I think the goalie may have got there first.

Yes because Watkins was being held.

The only possible circumstance in which that wasn't a clear red would have been if it was a Villa defender.

Agreed.

I very much doubt anyone would be arguing about the red card if Ollie had gone down or had been tripped instead of held back. Iíve seen a few circumstances already where penalties/cards have been given with players trying to stay on their feet (Chelsea penalty as an example) so itís good to see that blatant obstruction/cynical fouls are finally being punished...obviously I wonít be so much in favour if any of our players are guilty of these petty crimes!

I am waiting for someone to dig out the possession stats of the European Cup final to decide whether we deserved to win it or not. I am black and white on these matters. Obviously I prefer a good dominant performance but for me a win is a win.

I think Opta was just a twinkle in its parents eyes back in 1982.

No. He just about got there with Watkins carrying a yeti  on his back. Even in an 50/50 there is no way he would have outplayed a nippy forward.

Did laugh at the way Ramsdale just collapsed for the goal. Imagine signing him instead of Martinez.

He seems to have the build Paul Robinson had about 15 years ago and dives like an oak tree being chopped down.

If a clear sending off is 40 yards from goal running away from the new nets is a goal scoring opportunity then every goal kick blocked in front of Martinez is a red.
I'm just having a catch up on my lunch break. I can't fathom this post. Is it me?

This made me laugh. And it's spot on.
