Welbeck denied a typical Welbeck goal

So, the UEFA Nations Cup opened up for England in dramatic style with the ref displaying the usual UEFA bias towards Spanish teams when he disallowed Danny Welbeck’s late equaliser.


Apparently the goal was disallowed because Welbz just stood underneath De Gea waiting for him to fall on top of him! Reasoning of that kind just beggars belief.

Wembley looked rammed as the new competition format promised more than the usual tedious friendlies. Spain were the classier outfit throughout as you might expect with so many spuds on show for England. The Spanish (and Basques) shaded possession but had fewer shots on target from the same number of efforts on goal.

The moment all Arsenal fans were waiting for came in the 94th minute – there was a large amount of injury time due to an unfortunate clash of heads involving the unlucky Luke Shaw just after half time. Welbz had only been on the pitch for a minute or two when he majestically stroked the ball into the net after De Gea fumbled.

After consultation, the bent ref ruled the goal out and England’s celebrations were cut short. Here’s the incident, judge for yourself.

    Ohh, something to read, I didn’t expect that, thanks.

    I did watch the game, I think I did so because of the change in format and the promise of some competitive football, and it did not disappoint from that perspective.

    I dialed down my expectations of England long ago, I am sure like most I don’t expect much and as such I am better prepared for the frustration that seems to go hand in hand when watching our national pride. Last night was no different.

    ‘Something to read’ is a bit of an overstatement. 🙂

    Morning All,

    Thank you chas

    Enjoyed the game. Spain were light years ahead of England in technique and deserved the win. Thiago and Isco are superb players and I was amused at the abuse Ramos got.

    The Spurs players were, to a man, pants. No surprise there.

    Shocking refereeing throughout. Spain masters of the passing and protecting the ball game. Isco terrific player. DeGea best shot stopper in the World. Too many average/good players in England squad, but who cares.

    Thanks Chas

    I didn’t see the game, but have revised my opinion of the tournament a little, in that a match with any kind of competitive edge must be better than a friendly

    Having said that, I remain disinterested in England

    I read Balotelli had been selected for Italy again 🙂

    Does Nike include this in their advertisements to?
    Re-visiting the Lowell Mill Girls via 2018 child sweatshop.

    I will ask this question too. Where was niKe when futbol started out anywhere? Here in the states no F’n where mate. For those two reasons I have never owned any of their products.

    The hypocrisy of niKe is nauseating.

    Heard on other site that Torierra came of hurt with ice pack on calf…grrr

    Sadly Eriksen showed that he is a far better player than Ramsey tonight in Dk,

    Why didn’t AW sign him? If he read AA he would have known that Eriksen was special when he was at Ajax.

    What’s futbol

  13. chas says:

    All of my stuff comes from charity shops these days. No idea if any of it is ethically-sourced.

  14. chas says:

    I find the hypocrisy of a POTUS who talks about disrespecting the forces and the flag but who also dodged the draft umpteen times far more nauseating.

    What is this place coming to

  16. LB says:

    Sorry, can’t resist this.

    Because he signed Ozil.

    Mendy crossing though

  20. chas says:

    Mendy £52m
    Stones £47.5m
    Laporte £57m
    Walker 53m

    You get what you pay for, I suppose

    Well Chas, since I served as a Sergeant in the US Army, I have been nauseated by every single vomit inducing elite that has served in the oval office in the last 60 years minus a few. That goes both ways. The entire political organization needs to be scrapped and ridden of financial and legal influence. This is the last political statement I will give for a while.

  22. chas says:

    I feel much the same about politics in the UK, Aaron.

    I should have known better than to put up that klan/nike spoof.
