Gerrard brands Daniel Candeias' red card an 'embarrassment'


Recommended Posts

Many of us have called for pressure to be applied on the SFA and officials so I for one am happy with the statement.

 

Those who have a pop at us, as usual, will only reveal their own agendas.

 

Meanwhile, we stick to our own agenda.

The final sentance is a clever way to finish and makes it more difficult for pundits/media to criticise because it directs the same message as they have been doing for years and doesn't just talk about decisions going against us.

 

 ....."This is by no means the first time errors of judgment have been made in matches involving this official and clearly there is an underlying issue which requires to be addressed."

In those circumstances they will then criticise the way in which things are said and the messenger in a broader sense.  As sure as tick follows tock...

If they are wise, they will just agree with it, that or make themselves look like what they are.

 

That said, truth doesn't seem to matter anymore, blatant lying is in vogue.

I think the club have boxed clever with this one.....

 

The incident was clear - Candeias did absolutely nothing wrong.  I don't think there is a single "expert" or pundit out there that believe he deserved a yellow.  As clear a case of the Ref getting it wrong as theres gonna be.  So the club challenge it.  Even though there is not an actual mechanism to challenge a 2nd yellow, the club used the "mistake identity" clause.  The appeal was NEVER gonna be successful & the club knew it.

 

What the club did get from the process was the chance to confront the Ref face-to-face & to question directly.  The ref had no option but to state that it wasn't a case of mistaken identity as there were no other Gers players there, and he did in fact book the opposition player as well.  Therefore the Ref must have seen "something" to warrant a card - even though there wasn't anything.  Therefore the ref got it WRONG.

 

This then lends weight to out request for a rule change and a closer look at the behaviour & quality of the Refereeing in Scotland.
