Dangerous play

Just wondering if anyone else thought that after Luke shaw got his yellow, rightly in my opinion why the foul on Cavani one was rescinded?

Now I understand that the first foul is where the freekick needs to be, so Cavani doesn't get a free kick.

BUT what I don't get is why the actual foul on Cavani, doesn't get any punishment?


I'm just using last night as an example. This isn't about Cavani or Shaw but the situation we are. With VAR it happens a lot with different circumstances. So a defender takes a striker out. VAR checks it and the striker was offside, so the offside means no action on defender.

Surely if a foul is dangerous play them regardless of the "first" incident there has to be punishment?

The Brady one wasn't dangerous. It was just a foul that stopped a chance. Should have been a red if not for the Shaw foul, as it denied an obvious scoring opportunity.

If it were a dangerous challenge by Brady it could have been awarded as a red.

The Brady tackle was poor & could be judged red...but there was a second defender close, making a goal scoring chance 'potentially questionable'

I felt the Brady tackle itself, never mind the goal scoring opportunity aspect, was reckless in itself. Think his yellow card still should have stood despite the free kick going back to the Shaw situation. I suppose the argument is he wouldn't have made the challenge had the original freekick been given. All a bit messy but the only egregious decision was the Maguire goal being chalked off.

Not a chance. There was no way anyone other than Brady was getting close to Cavani.

Irrelevant of the goal scoring opportunity if Brady tackles like that in the game do people agree it is a yellow.?

If so is he getting it rescinded simply because the foul occurred during a phase which VAR later annulled?

"Not a chance. There was no way anyone other than Brady was getting close to Cavani."

balance of probability would tip in this favour...but it's still "potentially questionable"

But it's all a moot point anyway

Wasn't Bailly got a yellow card recently as he threw a flying tackle after the ref blew the whistle for a foul earlier? Think it was in Aston Villa game

I'm not saying he was booked incorrectly. Just wonder the 'out of play' argument is valid

To my mind play is live until the whistle goes...this includes any play past a VAR check

For me the Brady challenge was a yellow card and maybe not the most dangerous tackle but certainly in the realm of dangerous.

However not wishing to get distracted by the specifics of that challenge, my issue is more about punishment for a "second" foul if VAR picks up an earlier one.

I think maybe the pickford issue is maybe a better example to use.
