Looking forward to @talkSPORT 2-4pm UK time with @talkSPORTDrive and @honigstein (that's Adrian Durham and Raphael H in old money)
@robwoollard_afp @paddybarclay only have to look at #Velasco’s card stats in #LaLiga to see didn’t apply his “normal” standards!

@paddybarclay but is this lenient refereeing a result of us wanting less cards in matches. In this game though, it was too relaxed. ..

@paddybarclay I only wish that the governing authorities & the 'football is a physical sport' yahoos will take this is match a lesson.

@paddybarclay It's a shame that it has taken a major injury to notice. Would have gone pretty much unnoticed otherwise.

@paddybarclay Completely agree. Did refs get told before WC to limit yellow/red cards? It has certainly felt like that.

I'm sure the Columbian will be crucified for taking out Neymar! Horrible challenge but I blame the ref, what about James? @paddybarclay
Retweeted by Patrick Barclay
@paddybarclay In truth #BRA deliberately set out to take advantage of lenient refereeing to kick James off the pitch. It worked & backfired.

If you let too much go, things just get worse. If only all refs had been like the Algerian who made a fine job of USA v Belgium.
FIFA are undoing all the good done by the reforms of the early 1990s.
As has been pointed out, Neymar paid for Brazil's brutality against James. Both are horrible.
@markyturbs @paddybarclay only just seen that Neymar out of WC. Dreadful stuff, as was Brazil's treatment of James

What happened to Neymar was not a mishap. Direct result of the lenient refereeing of most matches at this tournament.
Thanks to referee Carlos Velasco Carballo for returning football to the dark ages. But he's not the only culprit at this WC. Poor Neymar.
Enjoying the England chat with @paddybarclay at the Maracana on talkSPORT right now. He's not a fan of the Capello reign with England

Well, I never knew there were so many brilliant tacticians around. If only one of them had got hold of Jagielka when he was young....
.@paddybarclay TBF Rio said he would have dropped off & close space between him & keeper. Bit like this (70secs) youtube.com/watch?v=SLCO86…

@paddybarclay I don't feel like that this time. We've lost to two good sides. It's disappointing, but it's not embarrassing.
Retweeted by Patrick Barclay
And the second goal came from a gamble (by a great player who knows when to do it). Again, don't cane Jagielka.
@newcastlepride @paddybarclay you should know what that looks like .. Suarez would have been offside if a forward had have headed it

You're not seriously telling me that Rio F criticised Jagielka for the first goal?
