Booking players for taking their shirts off. Absolutely ridiculous.

Especially when it's celebrating someone's life.

Agree 100%. What got into the referees mind to book him? Unhuman!

Premier League/FA could have helped the bloke before the game like telling him to be a bit more sensitive to any goal celebration tributes. It was always going to happen.

Refs are under pressure from their assessors to implement the rules regardless of emotions attached to a certain celebration - I have no qualms about the ref issuing the card at that time, all he is doing is following orders (which he is under pressure to do) - the FA should IMO just rescind the card now after the event

FWIW Claude Puel said he accepted the card as Leicester City approached the game professionally and he expected everyone else (i.e. the refs) to do the same

Agreed - it's a yellow card offence.  The referee shouldn't have make decisions on what events are or aren't worthy of being commemorated by taking your shirt off.

I have to say I thought the shirt yellow was introduced because some cultures don't dig on seeing exposed flesh? Which makes booking someone for taking their shirt off, when they're wearing an undershirt, especially absurd.

Changed not long after Forlan couldn’t get his top back for an age after scoring for Man Utd. Inbuilt undershirt days of yore.

Agree with both your comments and have great respect for Puel's considered response. It's a shame that this should have been a tlaking point at all, and it wouldn't be if it wasn't for the unnecessary, totally unrelated to the game in any way, rule being in place.

Bullshit. It's to prevent players from benefitting from individual sponsorship that might not be in line with official sponsorship.

Football as a whole, sadly.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Players getting admonished for showboating.  So f***ing pathetic the way people react as if it's a great insult if a player shows off.

Lee Dixon. Worst commentator ever imo. Stunned at how miserable one man can be - always has some useless, negative assessment or anecdote. Boring bloke, like.

Players talking in the media in pre season about how they've not taken any vacation and instead worked extra to come back stronger next season. This season it was Murphy and Atsu, and both have been atrocious this season. The years before it has always been Rolando Aarons.

Just gives you false hope that the player's are not gonna be completely useless the season to come, which has never been the case.

Chants that don’t rhyme with the original song. ‘Harry Kewell’ and ‘Timmy Krul’ to Daddy Cool, brilliant...not so much Alan Smith.

‘Philippe Albert’ and ‘Laurent Robert’ to Rupert the Bear, yes...Yohan Cabaye , non.

People getting precious about offensive songs *

*Racism, Homophobic or singing about the dead is too far.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
