“I assumed it was getting tidied up, after which it appears to have stepped again a bit. I stay a fan at this stage, however it’s starting to check my endurance even, as a result of I take a look at the apparent offsides which I believe is honest, that ought to be there, among the others I’m going effectively, what’s acquired an opportunity now of being let play and what’s acquired an opportunity of being known as, however we don’t really know.”

“We now stay in a barely completely different world I believe, and that’s should you go into challenges with a straight leg and you’ve got a little bit of intent behind it, there’s a threat.
“There was positively no malicious intent from Calvert-Lewin, there’s no query of that, not from seeing it again, it’s only a scenario of an interpretation nowadays of a problem, and the interpretation sadly will be that should you’re straight-legged and your foot is off the bottom as you go right into a problem it may be deemed a pink card.
“So have I acquired sympathy for him? Sure I’ve.”
