Furthermore, despite being the team that fouls the least we are only 3rd for cards awarded :dazed: surprisingly enough Juve is 5th, despite being by far the team that fouls the most :eekani: :eekani: :eekani:

I'm not a fervent supporter of TV replays but it is worth a shot. They should be tested out. Otherwise the Referee Exchange program is also a good idea! :thmbup:

Ibra would already have been suspended for 10 matches if tv replays were allowed :eek:

Surprise, surprise ;) And what's new? :D

Evidently Inter and Milan are the teams that fouls the least. These are THE teams in Serie A whose strength is possession and who prefer to take control over the game rather than playing 90 mins catenaccio.

Let's hope that luck will bliss us from now on, since we've commited 200 fouls less than Juve, but have only 3 fewer yellow cards and 4 more reds :dazed: :dazed: :dazed:

It's perfectly legitimate to play aggresive football, as long as you are carded when deserved.

Magari fosse solo la fortuna che aiutava la Juve ;)

The day I will see Buffon getting send off for a tackling similiar to the one of Dida vs Livorno in Serie A, I will invite randomly 5-10 unknown people around me for a drink or two to celebrate the existance of justice in Italian football ;)

However I am quite confident to be 'able to save' my money

But Zebina still got away scot free for a shirt tug in the box on Raul & some cheap shots not spotted by the officials :veiled:

Well honestly, lets take the situation of a small sample size:

Team 1 fouls 10 times
Team 2 fouls 5 times
Team 3 fouls 2 times

If Team 3 fouled both of their fouls as a last man or other really extreme offense, then 2 red cards, 2 games with less men

But Team 1 fouled normally! And so they have 0 red cards!

Logic is flawed. Sorry.

Well you can't blame me, bernmilan1, for having issues....As if one's team loses over and over again it gets to his head and messes things up...and he's considered a psychological nutcase, as you implied....too bad it will get worse next week with our loss to Porto, 2-1...:(

We make mostly professional fouls to stop the play, because we attack so much (and by that I mean our fullbacks getting caught out of position) :stuckup:

I see you logic Pulsar, play down you hopes for the game so that you can't be disappointed. I guess it works for derbies too ;) But don't you think that if the team thinks like you, you are bound to loose regardless?
