Why was everyone applauding Urgohide?


Recommended Posts

Yes he’s a young kid and was showing some grit early on in the game but making a rash, needless challenge whilst already on a yellow is frankly something that shouldn’t be applauded.

 

We were dross again today but at 1-0 down any team with 11 men on the pitch have a chance of a draw or even a win. 
 

Ridiculous some of our fans.

He’s a good lad, he wants to get get stuck in but ultimately that ended the game. It seems he needs some time to develop before being in the first team. 

 

(Reading players not getting booked is a separate argument).

Because he was a young lad who had just messed up. He played ok first half as well. It was rash and he will learn the hard way. But he was hung out to dry by the players which was bad to see. Credit Borner for doing the right thing. Monk just ignored him, not good

Think they just felt sorry for him to be honest. He looked devastated. That could really destroy his confidence. I desperately wanted someone to go and put an arm around him which Borner did until the physio finally got to him.

The challenge on Harris which was sly no booking - almost the same place as well. 

 

Refs definitely on message with the EFL

I clapped him off

 

More in a ‘keep your chin up lad’ kind of way, the last thing we need is to crush a young lad at the start of his career

 

Also he made two fouls in the game and the “referee” couldn’t wait to book him on both occasions, where was the ‘next time your off’ chat?

Serious?
 

Theyre two bookings - pulling at someone’s legs and a challenge from behind 

 

Theyre not niggly fouls

It was always a strong possibility he’d get sent off after that first needless yellow, and Monk should’ve protected him, and the team, by subbing him before it happened,

His first booking was outrageous, in an innocuous area of the pitch and a debatable free kick (wet surface not taken into account), and the player wasn't running through on goal was he !

Then Harris sprinting away dwon the left hand side charged unfairly off the pitch, no yellow, how is that consistent ?  The second was a foul but not malicious and he got a foot on the ball. Terrible referreeing , fooled time and time again. I applauded his attitude and was telling the ref, you got that wrong.

Yet a Reading player can wipe Harris out (twice) on half way and get nothing?

He shouldn't be asked to play in a toxic atmosphere like today it will do him harm.

Monk should have brought him off at HT, I said he would end up being sent off, the weather didnt help matters .
