    Walter why no mention of the not given penalty for the most blatant of shirt pulls by Vertonghen on Kos.
    From your match report….
    ‘And also how on earth Vertonghen getting away with the clearest shirt pulls on Koscielny’

    MickHazel,

    While reviewing from the available recording of the broadcast, I saw no such incident first time and also the second time. If anyone can just remind of time at that moment of the incident, then we might be able to make some post-review corrections. Even a time range will be helpful.

    I did put a link up in the comments to a picture of the incident but can’t seem to find it now.

    Mick,

    Is it the Xhaka-Vertonghen Penalty (clip is provided above) where some of us might have mistaken him for Koscienly or its an entirely different on?

    No it was not the Xhaka one, it was definitely on Kos. I found the picture on one of the other blogs I think but cannot seem to find it now. Even the BT commentators remarked on it saying the shirt pulling clamp down hasn’t lasted long.

    Mick,
    I remember seeing it during the match but couldn’t fint id later on. But didn’t know the player but it looked like Koscielny.

    But we did find the shirt pull on Xhaka but unfortunately Xhaka was also holding Vertonghen so that cancelled each other out.

    Hmm,

    Was it in the first half or the second half?

    Also, was it from a set piece (corner, freekick, throw-in)?

    1st half I think.

    I think it was from a corner.

    This was 1 of the other three set pieces in the first half. The other two being (XHaka-Vertonghen Incident and Spuds Own Goal). Anything in this?

    Can’t see anything, but its difficult to see from that clip and that angle.

    Mick,

    That was the only other set piece I could find. maybe it was not shown in some broadcasts or maybe it didn’t happened or maybe it did happen but we don’t remember it…. The important thing from that match is that thanks to Clattenburg’s failure to hand out yellows to Wanyama in the first half cost us 2 points.

    Looks like the diving elbowing cloggers feel more at home playing PGMOB Rules (ok?) Football as opposed to the more common Association Football code.

    There’s a surprise!

    Shirt pull on Kos was in the first half. Think from a corner. From memory sometime between minute 15 and 35? But could be wrong.
