It was in the box, a clear penalty. One of the most stupid penalty's we will give away all season. There was just no need to pull his shirt, i have no idea why he would do so?
It was stupid but wasnt as clear as you imply. At one of ours Craigan was practically riding Nish and nothing was done. The ref's will bottle it when it comes to the 89th minute in the last OF derby with the winner to take the title.
I usually rate nishy, but he made one pass to a hibs player today! The rest were wayward or his control was pish and his second touch was a tackle. How he stayed on for 70 mins bemused me!!
maybe cause he scored 3 against this team on our last visit ? i agree though he wasn't great today but its a team game and he was part of a team who dug in and got 3 great away points to open the season
can see the ref giving a penalty at Parhead or Ibrox for the same thing. Also booked Bamba for kicking the ball away which to me looked a little accidental. Albeit sol might have got booked for persistent fouling ?
[QUOTE=magpie1892;2545555]Yeah, it's only Hibs players who get penalised for this offence, obviously.
Not quite sure what you mean by this?? This is the first weekend of the new season in which refs have been told to clamp down on shirt pulling - I reckon it's too early to say how consistently it will be applied. If you've got a point to make then make it clearly.
