Football GIF: Glenn Whelan Launches Horrendous Two-Footed Lunge At Javi Garcia, Gets Away Scot-Free

By Alan Duffy

Glenn Whelan’s dreadful challenge on Man City’s Javi Garcia unquestionably warranted a red card, yet big Howard Webb, who was well positioned to view the incident, didn’t even blow for a foul. Strange.

A right shocking challenge…

    poor english refs

  2. chris says:

    going for the ball if you ask me. Always looks bad slowed down. Unfortunate tackle

  3. Zam says:

    Looks like he’s going for the ball, but I can’t see any reason to jump at the ball like that.

  4. Scott says:

    Classic Stoke.

  5. K says:

    It doesn’t matter whether he’s going for the ball or not it’s still a dangerous tackle and he should have been shown a red card.

  6. Nuno says:

    It doesn’t matter he goes for the ball. Shawcross also went for the ball against Ramsey. It’s a dangerous challenge and he only gets the player. Red card, no doubt (Kompany got a red for a similar challenge and he DID get the ball).

  7. The Belgian says:

    No way in hell he’s going for the ball like that, that’s not even a sliding tackle. It’s a two-footed standing tackle. If he would’ve had the ball like that, he would have stamped on it and fell on his arse.

  8. Vasko says:

    I guess kicking people is considered ok now after what Hazard did.

  9. liam says:

    Pretty much sums Stoke up. That makes three dirty bastards in Whelan, Shawcross and Huth.

  10. Liam says:

    Tony Pulis would be moaning his tits off it had happened to one of his own, he must have selective vision.

  11. Howie Webb says:

    Javi Garcia clearly should not be putting his legs under Whelan. Garcia should have got a tick off for this.

  12. Scott mac says:

    Essien did this two seasons ago, got the ball and was still shown a red. This is the exact same challenge. Just poor ref decision, simple.
