Is it ever acceptable to cry during football? Should Carragher have gone?
The horror! The horror!
Spoiler HQ is full of modern men. We know our Balenciaga from our Bottega Veneta, enjoy the odd manicure and not a Wednesday afternoon goes by without us sit around on bean bags discussing our feelings and having a good cry.
Now, that’s fine in the comfort of our 45th floor minimalist office with panoramic views all over London, but is it ever okay to cry because you’re hurt on a football pitch?
This is just one of literally loads questions that have arisen from a great Sunday of football…
The Spoiler is going to stick its head above the parapet and say that Carragher should definitely have been sent off for a tackle in which he manages to miss the ball by a greater distance than Dirk Kuyt scored his three goals from.
There’s a rather horrific looking picture of Nani’s injury doing the rounds, but it’s still pretty inexcusable to get up, run to the ref, fall on the floor crying and then act like a spoilt little brat when a St John Ambulance volunteer tries to help you out, isn’t it?
Liverpool were by far the better team and thoroughly deserved the win, Luiz Suarez looks bloody tidy, while the players sitting on United’s bench (which included O’Shea, Fletcher, Gibson and Obertan) looked bloody dire.
Oh, and Rafael put in a pretty dreadful tackle, too.
United are still top of the league but Arsenal can pull level if they win their game in hand, while Chelsea will only be six behind if they get two wins in their two games in hand.
Oh! And there was a great game at Molineux as Wolves drew 3-3 with Spurs. There’s now only six points separating Newcastle in ninth and Birmingham in the relegation zone.
The standard may not be as good as it has been, but it’s pretty bloody interesting, no? Let us know what you think below…
