    If you count fouls that aren’t given then no doubt we’d be in the lead by far.

    Most fouled outside the box because when it comes to inside the box we are never fouled according to refs. This media campaign against Arsenal meant yesterday was our first penalty in months in a game where any normal team would of had 3. Its a disgrace.

    Surely been the most fouled team means you get more protected than everyone else because you get more free kicks given. Same old arsene l always moaning trying to play the victims

    actually billy i would get checked up for short term memory loss if i were you mate because we just got a pen last week, but i get your point and you’re absolutely right.
    also no surprise and on a side note it’s nice to see the tiny tots are 4th on the list and getting a few kicks!!

    The first in ages BooMer. We had at least 2 more yesterday that weren’t given. One against Ramsey in the first half and one against Bendtner at the very end, after the penalty, but before Tommy V’s goal.

    Can someone tell me how the fuck Hull get so many free kicks. It’s not as if their players get kicked trying to play teams off the park…must be a typo as it’s more like number of fouls Hull have commited.

    hmmm, thats not surprising. I thought we were a great physical side against stoke. aside from the 1st goal up to the 70th minute (wen no1 really attacked), our defence was brilliant. I’d like to see that every game. But the ramsey incident is such a tragedy. Were becoming short of Midfielders now

    im guessing the “chamakh has almost finalised a move to the Emirates, but the deal is done” bit is another rumour???

    everyone should go on sky sports and read one of the funniest things ever said by rory delap! the absoulute idiot thinks that shawcross did not deserve a red card and the ref was swayed by the broken leg!! it doest matter wether you ment to or not but if you SNAP another players leg in half then i dont think there is any other option than to send the other player off, he should really just be quiet becuase we deserved that win and they deserved their red card!

    Although Stoke can play football a lot of the time they seem to take their tactics from the American Football handbook, they and their manager seem to have got it mixed up in their heads. When you play “blood and thunder” football it is inevitable that injuries will occur and a lot of teams with less talented footballers know the only way to compete is to try and knock us out of our stride and this is being supported by the media. To play the way Stoke do is fine for short periods during a game but they do it for 90 minutes. I feel sorry for the supporters having to watch such poor football every week.

    Maybe rory delap thinks that someone only deserves a red card, when someone got killed on the pitch…

    Not conclusive about anything really except referees gave more freekicks for fouls against the likes of Hull etc and not against Stoke. Less likely to have fouls against if in possession less and also, in the EPL, scream less for freekicks.

    BTW According to optajoe; Stoke & Arsenal commit 12.0 fouls per game. THE SAME……
