This. Hate that he was standing on the line and prevented a goal by using his hands, because the rules do not allow for the goal to be counted even though everyone can clearly see that it was going in if not for his hands. Some people may find it Busch League, but it was within the rules.

So, why not treat it like goal-tending in basketball and award the goal?

I'm with you on that. What I'm saying is that he played within the rules, however unfair they may be.

I dont get it man. Within the rules is to make a play without a foul. Like a tackle, get the ball first and then the man, fair tackle. Shoulder to shoulder, fair challenge. Stand your ground and head, fair play. That is within the rules.

Tackle from behind, foul, potential red card, outside the rules.

Just because its punished doesnt make it within the rules, the punishment is the response for failing to follow the rules.

In this instance, with that prick Suarez, he benefited from his infraction and a penalty was missed. And was sent off in the 90th minute. And managed to break the rules to win a game. Being punished doesnt make it ok. It was a motherfuckers thing to do. If you're beaten, you're beaten. Let the goal in.

Sports often mirror society, and to suggest its within the rules to admit and be punished is indicative of what happened on Wall St where assholes were selling trash and at the very same time betting against it knowing it would fail. Its a bit better than that mind you... that was actually legal.

So, only notable moves of the January window: Cahill to Chelsea? Amauri to Fiorentina?

Been relatively quiet, no?

Extremely quiet. Nobody has $$.

Looks like Tevez wont move. Heard City are thinking of a suit because he destroyed his value.

And the deals start to line up (mostly loan deals, but whatevs)

Cissé from Lazio to QPR
Bridge from MC to Sund
Corluka from Tot to Leverkusen
DeBrunye from Genk to Chelsea (and loaned back to Genk)

Contraction at the top today. Carroll got into the act for Liverpool as well as Bellamy of course. It was nice to see Liverpool take care of business against a relegation team after their last trip to someone fighting it. Happy to see Suarez coming back for a crucial stretch.

We're taking the league and CL double having signed superstar Thomas Eisfeld.
Come on you gooners !!!

Deadline day was a joke.

Tevez.... pfff. Not even a loan. Sit and rot.

Chelsea and Arsenal needed to make moves and didnt.

Hearing rumors Mourinho is going to walk away from Los Blancos and come back to UK.

This is a woeful year to be a Chelsea fan. They are unwatchable. Wretched. Slow. Boring as fuck.

Must see goal. Mute it, though.

Ya, as much as I think AVB is a top manager, they really look like shit.

Its hard for a young manager to transition out players that are even older than he is and club institutions.

Malouda has no moves and is slower than Robert Pires in his mid 30s. Torres is so out of form its comic. The defense is leaking goals like crazy. Swansea were all over them tonight until Chelsea started to pressure late. David Luiz cant defend.

And did you see Peter Cech's out of the box clearance and how long it took him to rumble bumble stumble back? I couldnt believe my eyes.

Juan Mata and Sturridge are the only saving graces on that side this season. Mireles and Ramires are ok in midfield. Essien is back but I never really rated him anyway.

Why do they still play Boswingwa? He is horrible, he brings the ball up, crosses to no one, then tries to defend and can barely do that. They also attack the same way, bring the ball up the sides and cross, but we never score on that. Also, I don't understand why AVB did not want to buy a cup tied champions league player. Sure, they can't play in the champions league (and who are we kidding, we won't get far), but at this rate we won't even make it into champions league next year.

Tottenham playing some good-looking football today while Man City dropped points. The final goal from Gareth Bale was impressive - it looked like nothing and then bam - 3-1.
