GIF it – Stoke midfielder Glenn Whelan’s horror tackle against Manchester City
We can only hope that Tony Pulis, who has a habit of defending his players whilst criticising the actions of opposing individuals, does not embarrass himself by attempting to justify the decision-making of midfielder Glenn Whelan.
It was wild, it was reckless, it was dangerous, and it should be severely punished.
With all the midweek chat regarding Eden Hazard’s charge from the FA over the ballboy incident, this is five times as damaging to our game. The only thing to be thankful for is that Javi Garcia, the recipient of the awful challenge, was not badly injured.
