    anyone else watching the Blunts game at the moment? Birtles said Morgan couldn't help his follow through after Scannell caught him. If you see it ,look how Morgan 'defends'himself with that immortal elbow-again. If he hadn't got previous I might go along with Birtles' assertion -but he is just a thug.

    Not every clash is going to be deliberate, even from a 'thug', and that one didn't look to be.

    Just have a look at the use of his arm. If you think it was merely an innocent protection measure ,I think not.

    No they are not,but 'we' tend to know which players have the reputations ,which by and large are warranted. Good referees learn to 'look in' at incidents which are commonly known as 9 on 5 incidents,namely the forward following through as the defender clears it,or the defender exagerating his follow through as he clears. Morgan has previous,and like I said ,have a look at his arm. In my view it was not merely an involuntary action by the player. If you want to think otherwise that's up to you.

    Best Squad In The Championship concede a "heartbreaking" 95th minute equaliser to draw 2-2.

    It's hard not to laugh innit?

    If someone has a history of being reckless then they are less likely to be given the benefit of the doubt. It's human nature isn't it?

    Yes of course, but then a player might as well continue to be reckless because he's going to be considered as such regardless.

    But with your attitude it seems he'd be sent off anyway. Thats not doing the job correctly.

    Where the hell did I say that? Ye Gods! I just said in my opinion it was not an innocent challenge. I also said he had 'previoius',which has nothing to do with 'attitude' . It merely gives you an understanding and perception about certain players. Furthermore ,I said if certain referees had done their job correctly he would have had action taken against him i.e the Hume challenge. Before you come back and say 'the FA have taken no action so he must be innocent',we all know every decision they take is always correct (not) don't we?. If you think he is so innocent ,that is your perogative,but to make your last assumption is laughable. Referees,me included don't pre-judge, but we are aware of 'previous' .

    I think he was guilty as sin for that challenge, though I doubt very much that he intended to cause the extent of harm that he did. However I don't think that also rules him out from being involved in an innocent accidental collision during the course of a match.

    Put it this way... there would have been many far worse challenges and collisions during today's matches which haven't warranted any comment. Had the incident you highlighted involved another player it wouldn't have provoked any interest - therefore its more about the player involved than what actually happened.
