In which Heerenveen forward Oussama Assaidi gets pipped by the offside trap during his side’s 3-0 Eredivisie win over Groningen at the weekend and runs through, rounds the ‘keeper and flicks a doozy of a trick-shot into the empty net regardless…
I’m sure I wasn’t alone in willing Assaidi to fall arse-over-tit there.
Any road up, there are bigger issues to discuss. Remember when Robin van Persie saw a second yellow for shooting a split-second after the whistle had gone for offside in the Nou Camp not so very long ago?
Surely then, in the interests of consistency, Assaidi’s little post-whistle show-boatery warrants a straight red and a life-time ban?
If you’ll excuse us, we just need to make a quick phone call to the KNVB.
