Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Van Persieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
The Jack tackle was a definite foul and a yellow card. It was a dangerous tackle. You guys need to come out of the 80s.
Also, the penalty was a penalty. It was lucky in the sense that the Wigan player was a complete idiot, but it was a stonewall penner. Wigan were unlcky not to have a penalty themselves though as the was a moment where Sagna was obstructing Kone, but he stayed on his feet when he could easily have fallen over and won a pentalty. And another right at the end when Gomez's shot hit Varmaelens outstretched arm. Some would say that it was accidental and ball to arm, but for me his arms were in an unnatural position, so I'd have given the penalty.
