Football GIF: Was Emmanuel Adebayor’s High Lunge On Santi Cazorla Worthy Of A Red Card?
By Chris Wright
Brilliant game, thanks largely to Manu getting a bit carried away after 18 minutes…
Not the worst ‘horror’ tackle ever committed that’s for sure (it looked far, far worse in real time), but it’s hard to argue with it being red-worthy – not really by our standards, but by those that matter. Ref’s are notably more tetchy about this kind of ‘forceful’ lunge than ever before, and Adebayor pushed his luck too far by flying in.
What say you Pies fans? Red-worthy or not?
