Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Sergio Ramos cynically took out Salah. It was perfectly deliberate and premeditated from a man who has form. It knocked the stuffing out of Liverpool, who had dominated up to that point. Ramos knew that the only way to win was to scupper Salah, and, by doing so, he wrecked the match. Adam Lallana hasn't had much football this season so we can excuse his relative quietness on the night. The goalie made two horrible mistakes, 'tis true. When a goalie makes a mistake, it's a goal. When an outfield player makes a mistake, it's a free kick. Had Salah survived, it's pretty certain that neither of those goalkeeping errors would have happened.
