VIDEO: Oumar Niasse’s Shocking Dive For Everton Against CPFC

0 Posted by - November 18, 2017 - News, Video

Crystal Palace drew 2-2 after being pegged back twice against Everton on Saturday but Oumar Niasse’s dive in the opening few minutes of the game is the only thing most people were talking about after the final whistle sounded.

After taking the lead in the second minute of the game through James McArthur, Palace were dragged back to parity by a Leighton Baines penalty after the aforementioned Niasse conned referee Anthony Taylor into pointing towards the spot.

Whilst plenty of people are quick to jump on any fan who blames a refereeing decision for missing out on a victory, I can’t help but feel as though Taylor’s huge error probably cost us two points today, given the shift in momentum it brought about so early in the game.

Sitting at the very foot of the Premier League table, the boost our players will have had when scoring after roughly 90 seconds cannot be easily quantified; only for it all to be taken away moments later when on the receiving end of an incorrect penalty call.

So clear was Taylor’s mistake, that countless sporting pundits ripped into him immediately, not that it makes the slightest bit of difference to us now that the game is over. Of course, the mix up between Julian Speroni and Scott Dann which gifted Everton their second equaliser of the day on the stroke of half-time had a huge impact too but on a day when three points would have made a monumental difference to us, it’s difficult to look back on the penalty without feeling a sense of immense injustice.

A loss would have been disastrous, a draw, whilst not good enough given our current plight, is just about tolerable but given the circumstances in which we got it, Palace fans everywhere are likely to feel a tad hard done by yet again.

    The standard of refereeing this season in the Prem is at an all time low, in fact I think yesterday’s effort by A. Taylor reached the very basement of ref displays this season.

    What an arrogant little man Taylor is,when the crowd disagree with he’s decisions he then goes on to make worse decisions.

    What a terrible display of ineptitude this little man gave us yesterday, not awarding free kicks for blatant fouls, no yellow cards for persistent fouls by the same player etc. etc.

    These incompetent idiots are killing football with their mind blowingly bad decisions.

    Please F.A. bring in Video technology so that we can eradicate these buffoons in black so that we get correct decisions on the major incidents.

    I’ve looked at the penalty umpteen times now and I’m willing to bet that Niasse doesn’t get done for diving. Is it a penalty? Yes it is. Is it a soft penalty? Yes.
    Niasse makes the most of it and certainly exagerates his response, but, nevertheless it was a penalty.

    My feeling is that from that angle Niasse leans into Dann looking for contact. His legs were already going. Btw for Everton fans it looked to me that Schneiderlins legs had gone and one or two others were carrying rubber tyres round their middles hence all the fouls from behind. Play like that in soee placese Everton and by halftime youll be 3 down and two players will have been showered and changed. Taylor had to invoke the totting up procedure for several players. 26 fouls , nearly 3 each at a rate of at least 1 for every 3 minutes the ball was in play. Disgraceful from the so-called School of Science and Niasse smirking every time he was penalised made my blood boil. .Taylor does his job that could have been stopped and I think a lot more chances would have been created.
