Thread: Short note to Mo Salah

  1. #31

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    Don’t get why Morrison fell for it; Salah was going nowhere. He backed in and then did a twisting dive with hands flailing which that ref bought. The ref was poor all game.

    Manga made some great defensive moves on him.

    Itís either a foul or not though.

    If it is then itís a pen- at both ends and countless other times.

    Donít think it is a free kick elsewhere, donít remember too many like that given.

    Salah is sneaky, he backs in and falls over.

    Itís inconsistency again

    Not that it would have made much difference, we MAY have equalised, but it was more likely they would score next by that point

    Not going to dwell on it, but I really dislike Salah anyway- heís a diving little cheat

    It did coincide with the ref blowing up for the pen, so yes.

    Right, but nobody really knows that?

    Commentator on MOTD seemed surprised.

    Known and Jenas both said pen, although their justifications wee a bit odd.
    I like them though and they are generally fair.

    Pity they werenít asked about the one on Morrison at the other end. ( which imho is soft, but is still a foul, so a pen)

    You can't put your hands around a player when the ref is standing five yards away and has a clear view, you give him something to think about, even Neil Warnock has said as much.

    Not sure what else he can do there.
    Where does his hands go ?
    Salah is backing into him and heís towering over Salah.
    Also at one point Salah has hold of Morrisonís hand too.

    I can see where you are coming from, Morrison was all over him.. but the dive - bloody hell mun, I thought the ref was going to book him.

    And again, it grates because we donít get these when Morrison is assaulted at corners

    Morrison does get a raw deal at set pieces-Agreed. Maybe he should've put his arms out and used them in a way that stopped Salah from turning, i don't think he was being that clever by wrapping himself around Salah with the ref so close. I sort of get why he did it as Salah can turn very quickly. Doesn't really matter though, i don't think we would have got back into the game.

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    Salah realised he wasn't going anywhere and threw himself to the ground, unfortunately the ref bought it

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    I thought it was a pen at the time and it probably was. So I'll park that.

    In the balance of fairness, Robertson's pull back on Morrison in the 48th minute is therefore 100% a penalty. With the score at 0-0, it was a pivotal error by the officials not to give penalty.

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    It's definitely a pen, anyone saying otherwise has bought into this nonsense corrupt ref nonsense. Morrison's shit attempt of a header along with his embarrassing WWE match with Salah is the reason we lost the game. If we stay up big money is needed to reinforce the defence

    Well that solves it then.

    Yep, that has swayed me, good reason bruh

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    What annoys me most is at nearly every attacking set piece Morrison gets pretty much the same treatment yet never gets a pen.

    If only we were in a league with VAR next season.

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    I think itís a nailed on pen, heís wrapped his arms right round him for a good 5 seconds. What is he even thinking doing that.

    People say Salah went down easy but if you donít go down the ref doesnít give it.

  19. #49

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    It was a pen.

    Morrison didn't need to put his arms all over Salah like that, despite some on this thread trying to argue that he had little choice with a smaller player backing up against him - you don't NEED to put your arms around a player like that!

    He wasnt going anywhere because the defender had his both his arms wrapped around him stopping him from where he was going. Unfortunately itís football, not rugby, and thatís a foul.

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    The ref should have blown for a penalty well before Salah went to ground. He shouldn't have had to go to ground to make it obvious he was being fouled.

  23. #53

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    Agree with the majority on here - Morrison was silly to do what he did, knowing that most PL strikers (not just Salah) would do what Salah did. It's probably part of their training routine, how to execute the perfect not-too-obvious dive.

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    Can't remember specifically what happende, but just before the pen. Morrison got up off the ground and went storming back towards Sala. He had the proverbial 'red mist' and you could tell he was buzzing, rather than keeping his cool. Shame because he had a good game, along with the impressive Manga..

    Think it was a poor pass from Morrison in his own half that gave Liverpool possession. He was then chasing back.

    To all the muppets saying Salah dived the moment Morrison let him go, has it occurred to you that Salah couldn't go down until Morrison actually let go of him? he was being held up!

    Something straight off strictly come dancing - a joke and he should get punished for it

  27. #57

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    If it had been at the other end of the pitch we would have been screaming for a penalty.
    Morrison, as MOD showed so clearly, had an awful few minutes during which he was clumsy at both ends of the pitch.

  28. #58

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    Salah dived. But there was a foul. Other end of the pitch Morrison is fouled doesnt dive and we dont get a pen.

    Diving won the day.

    Re: Short note to Mo Salah

    100% a pen, the frustrating thing is the lack of consistency with those type of decisions. Morrison was being wrestled by 3 men most corners against Chelsea
