I would agree, the second foul was really the Polish player slipping and falling on the pitch... It was pretty hilarious. See how referee mistakes make for fascinating conversation? Who needs technology? The penalty against Poland was legitimate, however I am strongly against this business of awarding a penalty AND a red card if a goalkeeper commits a faul in the penalty area. It seems to me that you are punishing the same team twice for the same thing. It is ludicrous, unless the foul is clearly a red card infraction (the German goalkeeper Schumacher almost killing Batiston in the 1982 World Cup semis springs to mind). Penalty should be enough, possibly a yellow if it was anti-sport behavior. In this case it was not - both the goalie and the player went for the ball, the player got it and the goalie missed and got the player's foot - penalty - end of story. However, if a player is fouled in a clear goalscoring opportunity outside the penalty area (so he doesn't get a PK), then yes - a red card is right. Arsene Wenger pro-White? This is news to me - I wouldn't say that if I look at Arsenal's racial makeup. However, he does seem to create little racial "islands" (little "apartheids") based on playing positions. For example, defence seems to be pretty white, same with middlefield, while Blacks are concentrated in attack (except Van Persie, the best scorer). Regarding St. Etienne in the 70s - is Georges Bareta still around?
