That Was A Particularly Nasty Red By Josh Dasilva|video
By Harry Hotspur -

Josh Dasilva’s foul on Pierre Hojbjerg last night was particularly nasty, and I suggest anyone still in two minds, to take a look at the enhanced detail slow-motion clip at the end of the tweet above. I’d go further and suggest that the authorities need to review the red to see if it requires greater punishment. This isn’t about the blood drawn afterwards, this is about what looks a lot like intent. I hope the authorities throw the book at him.

I agree H, the point of impact did make it look like a very nasty challenge. However to be fair to the boy, having watched the slow motion several times, he did appear to be trying to attempt some kind of flick or pirouette motion on the ball, right before impact, but his back foot slipped slightly, causing his front leg to go up over the ball. My own conclusion was that the sending off was justified, but that the intent was not malicious, rather an ill-judged, attempted manoevre on the ball, leading to an accidental collision.

It’s a question of intent in cases like this, I don’t believe it was meant, he was out of control of the ball and it was undoubtedly a stupid way to go in to a challenge.
However stupid and reckless challenges need punishment and the red is justified, it could have resulted in serious damage but thankfully Hoj will be ok. Oddly enough no players appealed and the ref didn’t see it as a foul, so VAR has for once done it’s job.

Emile is a very lucky , not to have his leg busted in two.

I was surprised that the ex-Brentford pundit on SKY thought that it was some sort of mistake by Dasilva, reasoning that he was just attempting a pirouette and PEH’s leg got in the way. The ball looks as if it is already well behind Dasilva; why would he not just turn away from PEH to take the ball away from the challenge?

It was not an attempt to pirouette, he was trying to chop it between his legs “some would say made famous by Ronaldo in his Man.U days” DaSilva does it often, & unfortunately PEH was too close & DaSilva slipped.
I think DaSilva knew the ball was about to be intercepted for the 20th time by our PEH & panicked.

An unfortunate mistake, Our T-1000 will live, if only he was wearing his motorcycle boots 😉

DaSilva hardly even ever gets yellows so decide for yourself if it was meant, he’s a very decent player, I’d love him at our club.

Spot on. Tried to chop across with PEH too close. No intent. Nasty result though.

It didn’t look too bad in real time but in slow-mo it looks pretty nasty.
