Just returned from my Thursday morning old fogies meeting where we spend most of our time drinking tea and putting the football world to rights. One fogey suggested that when a player is sent off a substitute should be allowed to take his place. His main arguments were (1) that the player concerned is the only villain involved and the rest of the team should not suffer because of his action.
(2) The supporters have paid their hard-earned cash to watch a game that is as equal as possible and by one team going down to ten men, they don’t get what they paid for.
Just wondered what the outstanding minds on this forum think.
