You are right. It was Iro who scored off the Renteria cross.
Was that the game where the Santos coach kicked one of our guys? Or was that the home leg?
Not sure who the Center was or the year. It was a game in Mexico. The bench ref allowed ER to enter the game. He scored relatively quickly afterward and the goal was disallowed. I believe, because he didn't have a number on his jersey. A number on a jersey is most likely a legit rule, IDK, but it seemed like a homer job at the time.
Bold and italics mine for emphasis.
If it is, it's a North American thing because Reading had a player wear a numberless jersey after he bled on his regular one during an FA Cup round of 16 match vs. Manchester United.
By the way, you'd think a Premier League club (even a recently promoted one) would have at least one spare jersey on hand for each player, even on the road.
My memory is horrible, so please forgive me, but I think ER had blood on his original jersey and had to leave the field to change. Same deal, they didn't have a backup with his number or perhaps any number.
Yep. How did they not have spares on hand, they're a Prem club! Surely they can afford it.
I think the official reason was that the sideline ref allowed him on & not the on-field referee. That game also ended in a rainstorm & the field was a mud-pit.
I think the official reason was, "Because we were paid off to do so."
I would have to do some digging but I seem to remember them trying to say that it was because he was not waved on initially but later the match report said it was because of "improper uniform". Most likely it was because there was pretty decent proof of the ref actually waving him on in the video.
I also remember a long discussion about Numbers on Jerseys rule being up to individual confederations and not a FIFA rule.
Found what I was looking for in Dispatch from 2010:
So it was offside (wait, he was not offside)
Then it was because he was not waved on (wait, I waved him on)
Oh, then clearly it was because of the blank jersey...
I think that pretty much covers it.
Just saw Miles Joseph seated next to Jeff Cassar and Jason Kreis on the RSL bench.
Kei Kamara got a goal and was consistently dangerous in Norwich City's win over Everton.
Got to think between Holden (pre-injury), Cameron, Kamara, and Espinoza showing well in England that others will look harder at MLS
Wasn't Norwich sniffing around Gaven and Pontius before working out the Kamara deal
The word is out. People know there's quality in the league.
But it will always be fashionable to bash the Yanks and their sawk-er.
It was MLSTRANSFERS and they were the only source.
So hopefully there was nothing to it then
Lanus is at the top of the table at 10 points.
Schelotto was sent off in the 76 minute in Lanus scoreless draw with Racing Sunday.
No goals conceded either
Three wins and a draw on the year; he's not doing too poorly.
Great, we'll never get him now.
I think we're good enough Robert will be retained after the season so I think it may be a moot point. It does seem like he wants to come back to the United States though; based on reported jobs he's interviewed for. I wonder which MLS team will get him; which will subsequently enrage me.
Which jobs were reported? I was unaware that GBS had talked to any American sides.
