    Has there not been a thread on this yet? Not sure I've ever seen it before where we've kicked the ball out for an injured player and the opposition have refused to give the ball back.

      Shows 2 things to me.

      1 - they are scum.
      2 - they were worried and wanted any possible advantage.

      I understand if a player goes down and you play on for a bit, but they kept going for a long time, And then the scum didn’t give the ball back. Have I called them scum yet BTW?

      Are you referring to a particular incident?

      Well yes the Knockaert injury. It was about the only point in the game where the whole stadium got noisy.

      Thing was, we all knew Knocky was ok but once he’d started he couldn’t then just get up.

      Regardless I was FUMING and glad we reciprocated later in the game when one of theirs was down.

      Is he not possibly getting a bit of a reputation? Yes he does get targeted but have seen a few games this year and certainly last season where he goes down too easily, possibly when not even touched

      Same happened at Bournemouth when Gross was (fouled) down just outside their box. They eventually won a corner and scored from it.

      But it's the rule now, unless there is a real or pretend head injury there is no requirement to knock the ball out. I actually agree with this change.

      I thought it was. Not quite as bad as the Highbury Library but similar to the "quiet zone" on a train.

      They only really make any noise in reaction to when we sang "you dirty northern B******'s", something they absolutely hated and seemingly took offense to, hence that reaction. To be fair though, most of their fans in the ground weren't Northern at all, so you can see why they would be offended.....


      Regarding their playing on, it just shows how much this level is all about results and trying to get any little advantage you can, with sportsmanship being replaced by gamesmanship. Playing on against little old Brighton when reduced to 10 men just shows how well we did yesterday and how hard we made it for them

      I dont agree with giving the ball back anyway at least not to the keeper. I think they should either (a) kick it back over where it went off if not in a dangerous area (b) Kick it off near the half way line (c) Kick it off down near the corner flag furthest way from our goal. They then swap the throw in rather than give any advantage. I think it is ridiculous to give the ball to the keeper and him be able to score direct with a long punt. The least that should be done is hit it out for a goal kick.
