2 dodgy goals for man u.   Wasn't a penalty for me.   Not sure if that was a hand ball by maguire there. 

Thought it hit his head.

Yeah it comes off Maguires head.   Hard to to tell if he flicks it after with his fingers.    Not enough possibly to rule it out.    The penalty though was harsh ☺

Pundits in The Goals Show still reckon it came off his hand. I dunno. Either way I hope they don't get an equaliser.

Hopefully not before the final, Soop!!

Think we are safe on that front now. The chance to end his managerial career should be great motivation for our players.

And the 4th official explaining himself

 

 

Can't make out what he said.

 

Just something about a black player?

Something along the lines of the referee asking him to identify someone on the bench and him pointing at Webo and saying "Him, the black one".

He basically said 'the black guy' whilst pointing out who the ref was to send off. All seems a bit of an overreaction/misunderstanding.

Calling someone a black guy if he is a black guy is not racist.

If he was pointing at a caucasian man, would you expect him to say "it was the white guy"?

Depends if he was surrounded by black guys and it was the easiest way to identify him.

If he was standing amongst black guys, yeah.

So instead of pointing out the guy and saying "this fella", you'd just go with the colour of his skin?

 

I do enjoy when white people tell others what is and isn't racist.

The guy was black. Referring to someone as black is not in itself racist. It is a descriptive term.

I think you may have just been racially profiled.

Like I said, white people trying to decide what is and what isn't racist is always a good laugh.

Thank God you are here to put us right.

This place is mad sometimes. Try imagining being of a different skin colour and hearing them say it was the black guy. Try using the persons actual name

Nah mate, instead of just identifying someone by bringing the referee to them, you're better just boiling it down to the colour of his skin. Because that's the only thing identifiable about him.

It’s a tricky one I’d say. How many times have you watched boxing and the commentators say “the challenger is in red shorts and the champion is wearing blue shorts” when there is a way more obvious difference between the two boxers. There is obvious a convention in place for how to describe people in sports.

Okay, so say it wasn't Pierre Webo who was being sent to the dressing room, but another member of the coaching team. How would you identify that person? And why wouldn't you be able to identify Webo in the same manner?

Think the fact he said it in his language and used the n word hasn't helped things. 

 

Surely regardless of where you're from you know that you can't be saying that?

What a strange time to throw someone's real name in.

 

Why? Are you worried your daft views become public knowledge?

If that's true, then that is obviously a completely different thing.

I'm not sure how I personally would identify Webo or anyone else. I probably wouldn't have done it in the same way as the 4th official though. That however doesn't make him or his actions racist, in my opinion.

So the Romanian referee is a British police officer? Huge if true.

Na.  He was sacked for racism.

No, I've always been very open about my identity on here. You were clearly using it as an 'i know who you are' though, which as I said is a bit weird. Crack on.

Well, I didn’t know that the ‘n’ word had been used.

 

That, undoubtedly changes things.

 

No need for that sort of crap.

UEFA is aware of an incident during tonight’s Champions League match between Paris Saint-Germain and Istanbul Basaksehir and will be conducting a thorough investigation.
 
Racism, and discrimination in all its forms, has no place within football.

Whereas trying to tell other people what is and isn't racist is fairly reasoned behaviour. Dear oh dear.

He actually looked shocked that there was such a fuss being made, some folk don’t actually realise they’re in the wrong or what they’re saying can be construed as racist. 
UEFA should’ve got him away from the stadium, shows how little they actually care about this.

Isn't that exactly what you are doing?

 

I'm uneasy about the 4th official being deemed a racist for using a descriptive term to identity someone. I don't think it does the wider debate any good when there are more blatant and undeniable examples of racism on a regular basis.Simple as that. I'll leave you to construct whatever narrative you like around that.

 

As a general point it is good to see players willing to take such a stand so well done to them for that.
