What I've never seen is a ref' send a player off for something that happened off the pitch

It happens all the time here. Not long ago a fan threw a lighter (or something like that) to the field. A Rosario Central player threw it back and the ref said "bye, bye". He wanted to kick himself in the butt, poor stupid.

Does that come under the heading of "misconduct"?

Scratch that, I found the law:

The player is also guilty of violent conduct if excessive force or brutality is used against a team-mate or any other person.

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

That law might not be that strict since some defenders I know couldn't even play one single game if that was the case.  ;D

I am totally impressed by this Womens World Cup. I think England would have won it barring that desperate, attempted clearance, but the English are well used to that sort of thing from the men's game.

I'm rooting for the U.S as I'm piddled off with Japan atm.

When I saw a reply in this thread I was sure it was a comment on our bitter defeat in Copa America yesterday. :'( :D

Well my team Sunderland has made yet another fantastic start to the season... >:( can definately see them being relegated this season, only hope is that Newcastle come down with us.

Bilić hasn't made West Ham look any better this season either (well, perhaps briefly against the Gunners).

Come back "big Sam", all is forgiven.

Someone make a song about Jesse Lingard already!

No, wait ... terraces are still empty.

You could replace the Hammers by the Baggies in this sentiment ...

Yes, but the other way round.

Mind you, loving the West Brom win over Chelsea. Makes us the top London club in the Premier League.

Ok, I'm starting on a Lingard statue.

And possibly an effigy of Masuaku.
