Penalty area assault, part dos

Hull City’s Caleb Folan was sent-off in a pretty decisive moment in their defeat to Liverpool today. He saw his marching orders for a crazy penalty area attack on Martin Skrtel. It’s just like watching Real Madrid!

    Pepe’s was much worse. At least Forlan tried to disguise his actions within his forward momentum and didn’t just blatantly kick a guy who was laying face down on the ground after the play had clearly run its course.

    I’m not so sure Folan will be getting a 10 match ban for this one if I’m honest

    Momentum? Would that be the momentum that made him swing his right leg round and into Skrtel’s ribs? Granted it’s not as bed as Pepe’s, but still a blatant kick at someone who’s lying down.

    No no, what I’m saying is that Folan (I did an awesome job spelling his name before, didn’t I?) at least tried to mix in the kick with his own fall during the run of play — he tried to camouflage it a bit, albeit not very well.

    Pepe, meanwhile, blatantly went over a kicked a man laying in a prone position after play was clearly dead. That was an indisputable assault.

    True, an intentional kick at someone is still an intentional kick at someone — my only point was that Pepe’s was much worse/beyond comparison. And now I feel we’ve (I mostly mean me, but I’ll say “we” to make myself feel better) thoroughly over analyzed this, so hurray for us!
