Paddy got sent off today againt faroe islands :cry: :cry:
Looks like he's back on form and ready to come back.
EDIT: Too bad it wasn't for a trademark crunching tackle or a customary backchat to the ref.
He must have been getting really frustrated that they could hammer the Faroes. He'll be happy to be back in a side that is playing top notch footy when he gets back to Highbury. :mrgreen:
Hope he doesn't let it go to his head. He needs to get fit and fast. Want to see that Vieira/Cesc partnership ASAP!
He got sent off for a second yellow - a dive.
Nothing to do with him being fired up!
Well I like to think that good players only dive when they are really frustrated, as a last resort you know. And I think that Paddy is a good player so he shouldn't be diving all over like an RVN.
I am actually suprised at that. Didn't think it was true.
Atleast he gets a rest the next time we break up for poxy internationals.
Always looking at the bright side ain't you Gator?
That's a valid point though. Keep him fresh for us! :mrgreen:
Vieira resorting to diving to get a penalty vs the Faroes? The Faroe Islands?
Ridiculous.. and if he did do it he should be banned for the rest of the year!
I can understand if he did it against Germany Holland Brazil.. but the Faroes?
I saw the first half of the match. It was dull. Pires, Henry and Paddy all didn't really play well. I dunno what's up with the French lineup but somehow they just don't play well. You would've expected the french to whitewash faroe.
Well... that does look like a dive to me... the faroe did make a contact...
Yesh~ Paddy will realise that it is Arsenal where he can play top football with his wonderful team mates...
Did Pires start?
of coz!!~ bobby make the assist for the first goal ;D
vieira diving is nothing new, although i'v never seen him trying it in the penalty area. in midfield he often reacts theatrically to the slightest of touches, usually buying himself a free-kick and time. its embarrasing to watch sometimes though, seeing a big man go down so easily.
How on earth the referee could tell it was a dive from where he was standing i will never know.
All the instant replays from all the angles could not show if there was any contact made, if there was, then yes, it would not have been a brutal challenge but atleast the defender made contact and therefore it cannot be counted as a dive.
Most referees would have let that go, patrick was very unlucky imo.
If he was unlucky what about the Irish goal scorer that got a direct red for celebrating!!!!
Talk about dont do as the Romans when out of Rome. The Italian ref must have forgotten that he was outside of Italy.
he got a yellow for celebrating then another for making an obscene gesture to the ref.
