Move over Liverpool...look at all those green bars next to Crystal Palace! I never expected to see that at all throughout the season for them. They've really tightened things up on defense and really just need decent strikers to help them win close games. (well, that's not ALL they need...) lol

Lol at Stoke for sacking Pulis.
+1
Pulis is above Stokes level. He's the lesser of two evils if you will.
Pulis proved everyone wrong. He said when he was signed that his main objective was to get Crystal Palace out of the relegation battle and survive. I don't think everyone took him seriously when he said it because at the time Palace looked defeated a 1/3 way through the season. Hopefully he leads Palace above Stoke by the end of the season, that would be a major burn to Stoke City.
and a liverpool man sinks chelsea...

So, what will happen to Mourinho now, ban? Huge fine?
+1
Why would he get either? ...

He did nothing wrong during today's match.
+2
He was being Mourinho, that's bad enough

But banter aside, what happened with the ramires incident, will he get punished by the FA?
+2
Why would Mourinho be banned or fined, he did not say anything along the lines of the ref being biased towards anything. He criticized the referee and the head of referees. Actually he just 'congratulated' them. So i dont think that is bringing the game into disrepute or what ever they call it.
+2
@Teja7 it depends if sarcasm is as offensive as insults.

"I just want to say four things

"Congratulations to my players because they gave what they have and what they don't have.

"Congratulations to Sunderland, because they won.

"Congratulations to Mike Dean, because he made a fantastic performance.

"And congratulations to Mike Riley, because what they did during the season was fantastic for the way the championship is going.

"Congratulations to all of them

knowing the brilliantly talented people working for the Football Association, i doubt they even realized Mourinho was being sarcastic
+4
@Xgooner4everX I would imagine a 3 game ban for Ramires, the ref missed it so FA will have to intervene.
+1
Have to think Ramires will be banned.

I think Mourinho will escape punishment. Pretty hard for the FA to impose a ban based on sarcasm.
I think it will be a 4 match ban, since Ramires already has been sent off before this season.
If I am right since his Porto days Mourinho has never finished outside of the top 2 in any league. Very impressive record as well. This year it's not settled yet, just tells you how competitive this league has become.

A lovely artist's impression of Tony Pulis

cannot unsee .... :(

i get the cap and everything, why is he naked?

I'm curious to know what others think of this picture, should i do a poll?
@Skool
Then you my friend are missing out.
+3
@BluFFmaster: Pulis is naked here because of his well-documented previous incident with James Beattie. Apparently, Pulis flipped out and attacked(atleast tried to) Beattie when he(Pulis) was completely naked, after some Stoke loss.

Borat anyone?

ahh, i remember now, cheers Suraj
So I take it, none of the mods are brave enough to embed this .jpeg?
HAHAHAA :P


Any takers?
LeDerp? Zilch? ... anyone? XD

I've been waiting for LeDerp, why doesn't he do it now? He's been at it so frequently of late :D
Going to do an impromptu pole since I'm curious what people think about the Chelsea penalty decision. Up vote one or the other.
Penalty.
+7
No Penalty.
+17
I think it was a soft penalty. It looked like Altidore is slipping and Azpi's trailing leg slightly catches him as Altidore is going down. No penalty for me.
@Colin
If u had actually seen the incident maybe u could'v figured it out all on ur own

http://giant.gfycat.com/BetterWaryConey.gif
It wasn't a penalty, Altidore steps down on Azpildsinfsdibso (can't be bothered) and trips. I don't really care though :P
+3
I have seen the incident. I saw replay upon replay and I have my own opinion actually. So far every commentator I've seen has had one opinion. Certain fans of one particular club have their opinion as well. Just want a fan pole. But thank you for providing the link for everyone else.
+2
whats the point in doing the poll. It won't matter
As a complete neutral I find this difficult to judge. In anyway it's definitely soft. If Azpi's foot was not in the way Altidore would have probably stayed on his feet, he stepped on it and fell. However Azpi's challenge wasn't even going into the direction of the legs. I don't think I know the rulebook well enough to judge this one. Wasn't an easy call for the ref to call.
If u think thats a penalty, well.... i won't comment any further

no no, rational thinking fans have one particular opinion

sure in the context of the game and in full-speed it may look like a penalty but when looking at it closely its clearly not
Ppl are saying that Altidore stepped on Azpilicueta, causing him to slip. I don't think so because if you look at when Altidore plants his left foot Azpilicueta's right boot(orange boot) and leg are actually off the ground. That is why I think Jozy just starts to slip on his own and might get caught a tiny bit with the other's trailing leg.
Problem is, one guy has the ball and control and the other threw his body to the ground and slid in without control over his body at that point. Who's at fault when the two players leg then touch? Not an easy question to answer, but I'll tell you who is likely to get blamed...
+1
It's still not as straightforward to me but as I sidenote the fact that his right foot was off the ground doesn't tell me much. The way these athletes run and change directions, this position is not uncommon and doesn't always lead to a fall. He starts leaning into the direction of the fall only after the slip. But still don't know it's a enough to call it a pen just because Azpilicueta's slide was in the way of the running path.

By the vote it seems like it's more clear to other ppl. In anyway I think it was a clumsy move by Azpilicueta, soft call and a tough one to call for the ref in real time.
@Illman agree, tough decision for the ref. Looked like a stonewall in real time. On replay it is a tougher decision. Could go either way.
+1
I think it would have been disastrous had it not been called a penalty. No way in justifying that it wasn't a penalty. aggressive, brainless challenges in the box need to be enforced
+1
Like really... what kind of threat was ALTIDORE posing on the touchline?? silly mistake Azplicjlnckalta
+1
I think everyone agrees that penalty or not, it was needless and inexperienced of Azpi to do that. Nothing more really needs to be said about it.
Shearer said stonewall penalty for whatever that's worth.

Agree Zilch, needless decision either way.
I am astounded that people are saying that wasn't a penalty. Azpi lunged in from behind, didn't play the ball and his trailing leg tripped Altidore. And under FIFA rules of the game 12 a foul will be awarded if a player trips or attempts to an opponent. Pretty clear cut if you ask me.
+1
Exactly what Zilch said. There's no reason to slide...Azpi tries hard and was unfortunate on this incident. He'll learn, Chelsea will suffer, and ppl will bring up the WBA penalty justification :D

Ok, maybe I, will bring up the karma
When I've watched the gif over and over. It looks like Altidore looks to cut in to the right, which indicates he's going to cross it in. He's left leg does seem to hit Azpi leg rather then be hit by it but Azpi does seem to impede him because he comes in from behind and doesn't get the ball. Penalty.
It really could have gone either way. Chelsea fans would argue that Azpi didnt initiate the contact. On the other hand Altidore wouldnt have fallen if he hadnt stepped on azpis leg.

I initially thought Azpi swept alti with his trailing leg. Ref probably saw it as such too. Meh. It was given so I just have to live with that. Cant blame the ref for this incident.
I hope some body makes a Gus Poyet calls Jose Mourinho clip :P
