'Intent' is a bit of a grey area in the FA rulebook. By the letter of the law, intent has no bearing on the application of the law, which is why Digne's foul was correctly judged to be a sending off offence, regardless of whether it was accidental or not.

Now, for me, Shaw's foul should have been a sending off too as I believe he intended to wipe Moura out as an act of petulance, but since it wasn't particularly dangerous play and intent can't be applied, it's only a booking.

Score more goals than they do.

Fucking hell Mad Jack anyone would think Lamela started a football club in Miami the way you keep banging on about him.

I know some football fans are biased to the point of comedy, but this is one of the biggest displays of spouting pure bollocks I've seen in a while, so fair play for that at least😂

You've lost me a bit here. The current wording of the law is below, so where is the line between the two incidents? If anything the wording is that woolly that any foul (or indeed any tackle) could be a red at this point.

Any player who lunges at an opponent in challenging for the ball from the front, from the side or from behind using one or both legs, with excessive force or endangers the safety of an opponent is guilty of serious foul play.

I would assume in this case, it's the interpretation of 'endangers the safety of an opponent', which is another grey area, as you've pointed out. Digne has stood on the opponent's ankle whereas Shaw has 'only' taken the opponent's legs out from under them, so the ref has only treated the same as any other shit attempt at a tackle.

Genuinely delighted to beat Burnley via a goal from a corner. Get it up ya.

Does "intent" mean intent to foul though or does it mean intent to hurt? A few weeks ago Luke Shaw just fully booted Lucas Moura with the ball nowhere to be seen and he only got booked for it, but it was incredibly dangerous and a clear attempt just to take him out.

I think it was pretty much recognised by everyone involved that that should've been a red and the ref was basically just taking pity at this point.

Can’t believe he’d drink out of some dude’s bottle during covid though.

They all have been sharing bottles, you can see it during the water breaks last season. Proper disgusting during normal times, even worse now.

I mean everything else aside, at least if you're paying £15 for boxing or whatever youre getting an undercard and a load of pomp and that. I heard you don't even get halftime analysis on these PPV games, is that right?

      Wild and bold predictions, ahoy.

      Regarding that line about us - I imagine that we will be refused that by the Premier League and we'll end up on the road for the first four games - which is fine.
      Predictions! Some seemingly obvious, some bold and unlikely to actually happen...
      Top 4 - Man City, Spurs, Man Utd, Liverpool. In a lot of ways I see it being a re-run of last season at the top. Emery improves Arsenal but they still fall short of cracking back into the CL spots. Chelsea struggle due to being so delayed with everything this summer (Conte's prolonged goodbye, unknown futures of Hazard and Courtois). Wolves finish in the top half of the table. Cardiff, Huddersfield, and Southampton to go down. Warnock wins the sack race; dismissed by Christmas

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released at 9am tomorrow morning, so let's make some predictions for the new season which will probably look stupid in six months or so: 
      Spurs will only scrape top-4 due to the Wembley effect. Pep's Man City will struggle again due to Ederson failing to settle. Arsenal to finish 6th. Huddersfield and Brighton will survive. Newcastle will be relegated with a different manager in place by Christmas. Watford will be relegated. Bournemouth will finish above Southampton. Bilic or Puel will be the first manager to be sacked. Talking of Newcastle...

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released tomorrow morning, so let's make some bold predictions for the new season ahead: 
      Leicester will only manage a top-ten finish. Chelsea will only make the Europe League spots at best. Top 4 of Man City, Man Utd, Spurs and Arsenal. In what order I have no idea. Liverpool will just miss out towards the very end of the season. Watford to continue to struggle under a new manager, particularly if one of Deeney or Ighalo leave, and get relegated. Bournemouth build on last season and do well again. Hull to straight back down to the Championship with Middlesborough. Burnley to just scrape survival, at the expense of... let's say Crystal Palace. Koeman's Everton to finish below his old club Southampton despite spending a metric fuckton of money. Pulis (WBA) or Guidolin (Swansea) to be sacked first.

      So yeah, it was kind of getting lost in the talks of actual football, but if you'd like to join the EWB Fantasy Premier League, the code is below. Use this thread for fantasy team discussions and such.
