    Chelsea still made all the right moves. An instant apology and recognition of wrong doing is always better than denial and t-shirts.

    yeah, im not disagreeing with that. Apart from rafas farcial post match interview, they have done everything right, even getting the lad into the dressing room to meet lamps and the rest of the team.

    I hope you do win though as the thought of Swansea winning anything makes me ill.
    So you're Welsh and not a Swansea supporter. Hmmm, scared we might go one better than you again? :D

    Hehehe, Swansea fans taking the cup seriously this year when last year it was a mickey mouse cup. Guess you have to win something some day and might well be in this classic final ;p.

    Patrick Vieira got sent off for kicking in the general direction of RVN in 2003. You don't have to make contact for it to be violent conduct.
    Exactly - violent conduct on a football pitch is a red card. Trying to kick the ball out from underneath that kid can easily be classed as violent conduct, Hazard gets a red and apologises, case closed.

    Thats how things should work - however, Sky Sports covered the story for what felt like a solid hour this morning, getting about 19 different peoples opinions on it.

    :rolleyes:

    Violent conduct against someone not involved in the game, regardless of if they're being a little shit or not, should surely hold a greater punishement.

    Just seen the incident; Hazard kicked the ball, not the ball boy. Got to admire the kid's acting skills, he'll fit right into professional football if he ever makes it.
    Nope, he kicked him right in the chest because the kid had the ball too far underneath him.

    Not like the Daily Mail to go overboard though. They've just hooked loads of stuff off his Twitter account and built a story around it. Such. Cunts.

    Hazard deserves whatever punishment he gets. The boy was an idiot.

    The real shame is that this story overshadows the fact that Swansea and Bradford made it to the final.

    My guess is that he'll get a four game ban. One more than standard just to acknowledge this was a bit worse than your average violent tackle, but nothing outrageous enough to cause a shit storm.

    See, from a 'violent conduct' point of view I think it is in absolutely no way close to your average violent tackle, I think Hazard was frustrated but there was no malice, he was very calm and I don't think he intended to even touch the kid, just to get the ball back.

    Agree entirely with your second bit though, that's why I'm confused it was for violent conduct, and not for bringing the game into disrepute
  • Deleted user 26 January 2013 12:23:27
    While your perception is that it was calm and with no intent, it is still just your perception and not an objective fact. Does that clear up your confusion?

    That it was violent with intent is also not an objective fact.

    I really like Swansea, and a cup would round off a fantastic year for the manager of the season, but it's not exactly likely Bradford will ever get another crack at it.

    So I guess on balance I'd like Bradford to win, but really I'll be happy either way.

    I really like Swansea, and I'm certainly not saying Laudrup isn't doing a good job. But realistically, that's all he's doing. Swansea are pretty much where they're supposed to be.

    Now Steve Clarke, there's your manager of the season.

    Really? Ninth (and very much in contention for higher) seems pretty damn good for a side in their second PL season.

    Also, Laudrup has massively improved their play. I know we joke about Rodgers now he's Brent-ing it up at Liverpool, but there's no doubting Swansea were very good last season, especially for a newly-promoted side. They're even better now; much more attacking and incisive.

    Put that together with some amazing signings (which considering they're from Spain are surely Laudrup's picks) and I'm not sure how he can't be manager of the season.

    Poor Duke, he's been brilliant in the other games.
  • Deleted user 24 February 2013 16:23:35
    I think I'd agree that Clarke has done a better job than Laudrup this season, despite Laudrup doing very well.

    I'll admit I kinda forgot about Clarke. I think I'd put him in third now, behind Laudrup and Ferguson but ahead of AVB.
