The Celtic player ran into the box, yes he was pulled, then the Celtic player went on then magically does an Oscar winning winning dive and gets the penalty - whats fair about that.

I believe that players know how to con the referee. To me it should be a red card offence for diving.

And l dont care if Warsaw failed - l believe in fairness in football. I gave up being a referee, as so many players were doing the 'dive'act. And it wasnt backed up by the leagues l played in.

If a Spurs player dives - then he should be red carded - simples. It should happen everywhere, and the club should fine the player for doing it.

In Scottish football, l see it lots of times. But some referee's dont have the bottle to send players off. Its just as bad in the EPL.
I agree re diving...use video evidence...get a retrospective card

I would extend that retrospectively to all forms of cheating - provided that the video evidence was 100% conclusive.

I'd go further and allow for match results to be adjusted in extreme cases.

If that wasn't really a penalty and he did dive then surely the St J player and team would have argued the fact?

He and they knew it was right, yes he did go down a bit dramatically but that doesn't take away from the fact that he was tackled harshly in the box.

Fairness in football?? Legia brok the ruels and were punished. Thats yer fairness in football right there.

Luckily, for those of us who enjoy a good chuckle, Salary McCoist doesn't do walking away.

Fixed that for you.

The furious rustling noise you might hear coming from the East end of Glasgow is the Maribor team sheet being examined in microscopic detail.

Re: The Scottish Football Thread

I watched this game, and bloody hell Celtic could have won by at least three goals.

Ambrose should have been taken off, he was giving the ball too many times, they hit the bar, and my god at the end they should have scored.

Bring in a manager that will moivate the team, never mind you will get taught another lesson in the Europa, you might be playing Spurs.

No, l felt sorry for Celtic, but my god no wonder they got booes off at the end. I was rooting for Celtic, but they let themself down.

Good. Although I bet that within the next 48 hours they lodge some sort of complaint with UEFA, or UEFA look into the result.

Why would they do that? They didn't lodge a complaint after the Legia game or would you rather pretend that Celtic were at fault.

TV coverage must have flattered Celtic. I was at the game and thought we rarely seriously threatened Maribor.
I don't think most of the boos were directed at the team, mostly they were directed at the board, and Peter Lawell in particular, for not finding another Henrik Larsson on the cheap .
I was booing because I knew I'd never make the next train and hoped for extra time as that would have fitted in with my train timetable.

You're right about Efe Ambrose though....

It's just Celtic seem to have the knack of getting lucky with these things, that is all.
