The petition to replay the Euro final against Italy has hit over 100,000 signatures, as these 'rule experts' claim two italian players should have been sent off. Expecting an extended warranty on a cup final is not a thing Britain! Its not DFS. Actually it is. Do fucking shutup!

Jesus, if every sports game had to be replayed because the official missed a call, they'd never fucking stop.

It's coming home... 2038 edition


OdaNova

That’s why we get all these stupid rule additions as the rule makers try to appease fans who are never fucking happy anyway. Case in point VAR, which used correctly is a wonderful thing but you’ll never get fans in agreement that it’s good for the game etc, or that the decisions it makes are correct. 🤷‍♂️


redmistultra

It’s a joke petition. Do you really think people are signing a change.org petition because they think we’ll replay the final two weeks later? No, it’s just because it’s something to do. And it gets attention from morons like this OP who think it’s real


PuzzleheadedMan

Do you actually know it's a joke or are you just assuming? Judging by the description on change.org and her updates, the woman who made it sounds like she means business.

indigomm

If you are going to get into rules... > The decisions of the referee regarding facts connected with play, including whether or not a goal is scored and the result of the match, are final. The decisions of the referee, and all other match officials, must always be respected. ([source](https://www.theifab.com/laws/latest/the-referee/#the-authority-of-the-referee))


Significant_Sign

Every sport played by human beings must necessarily include the limitations and foibles of those same humans. Being good at the sport means being good enough to adapt to and overcome the limitations of oneself and others involved in the game. If we want to relitigate every game that was less than perfectly refereed, we also need to be open to the less than perfect performances of others: replay a game when one of the coaches didn't coach as well as he usually does, replay every game where a team's best striker had to get subbed due to injury, replay every game where the keeper made a mistake, replay every game with an own goal, etc. Football didn't get invented yesterday. Everyone playing professionally came up in a system where they were trained about these situations and they pursue the career with their eyes open. These petitioning 'fans' need to throw away their pacifiers and grow up.


anomalous_cowherd

I recall a sci-fi book where two characters played a football game against each other where all the other players were robots - just like video game FIFA. The robot referees were programmed to make one major and three minor mistakes during each game to match reality... Anyway I don't recall petitions being set up to replay games when mistakes went our way?


OdaNova

There’s an inability to accept mistakes and defeats tbh. For me from a referee perspective, ithink the referee did okay, but he was lenient for two or three major calls. If it was me, I wouldn’t be happy with that performance, but then I’m sure he won’t care for my opinion on the matter anyway. End of the day, England did ok to get the draw and take it to penalties, the game was “lost” when they basically went too passive in the second half imo. Defeats happen; be happy with the first final in 55 years and cheer them on for the next competition imo.


Significant_Sign

I think I've read that too. I also remember, in the story I read, it was the last game that humans would be involved in - after that all player would be robots and even spectators were robots. Humans watched the game at home on tv. Thrill of the Grass? Feel of the Grass? Something like that I think.


anomalous_cowherd

Mine was part of a Piers Anthony series I think. Lots of puns in it, and unicorns etc.


[deleted]

I mean, I have absolutely no idea what's going on here and nor do I care to. But if they make a wrong call, they're wrong. Especially if it's backed by video evidence.


Neoptolemus85

As far as I'm aware, no match that was completed in full has ever been replayed for any reason, even in cases of corrupt or incompetent refereeing. Apparently the petition also solicits PayPal donations, so this is clearly a grifter piggy-backing off the disappointing result.


Bunkhead80

There was the FA cup match which was played between Arsenal and Sheffield United in 1999, but that was agreed by both clubs after a controversial goal after the ball was locked out of play for a player to receive treatment


Neoptolemus85

Interesting, I didn't know that! I've heard of teams allowing the opposition to score to balance out an "unsporting" goal, but not replay an entire match.


WumbleInTheJungle

There was a Bayern Munich match in the mid-90s, where they were awarded a 'phantom' goal, one of the worst decisions you'll ever see where the ball clearly didn't go in, but the referee gave a goal giving Munich a 2-1 win, which was the difference between them winning the title, a 1-1 draw would have meant they lost the title. It was such a bad decision that the Bundesliga ordered the match to be replayed, I was a kid at the time but I remember FIFA were pretty pissed about the game being replayed, as they said the 2-1 result should have stood, despite how bad the decision was. The game was replayed anyway despite FIFA's objections, and Bayern Munich won the replayed match 5-0. Here's the phantom goal [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b\_-H0\_Q946M&ab\_channel=Bundesliga](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_-H0_Q946M&ab_channel=Bundesliga)


winch25

The same happened at Watford v Reading in 2008, but as it was early in the season the result stood. Stuart Atwell was the referee that day, and he gave the goal after being convinced by the linesman, who saw the ball go over the line but neglected to mention that it wasn't between the posts.


[deleted]

Oh, I absolutely don't think they should replay the game, even if the referee was wrong at the time. It's over and done with and just a game at the end of the day. World cup next year!


sniffykix

This rule isn’t talking about whether the ref is right or wrong. It’s just saying the ref’s decision is final, regardless of whether it’s right or wrong.


imadethisforonething

Part of having humans as referees means accepting that they’ll make mistakes. The rule that the above user posted is just a catch all to say “quit whining, the game is over”


VulcanVice

Whether it was the Danish or the English, starting a petition for a rematch is pathetic for any nation.


naffgeek

I can't work out when stuff like this started to happen and what type of people are signing these things. Is it the younger generation that are used to getting everything they want and can't cope with losing. Or is it just people taking the piss out of whoever was daft enough to create the petition. Or was the petition just a wind up to see how may idiots would sign it. This world confuses the shit out of me these days!


monkeysaintfun

The internet made it possible for swathes of traditionally isolated numpties to band together on foolish causes like this one. Just look at how easily conspiracy theorists spread their lies these days through social media. Social media has been great at creating virtual connections while severing physical ones and is going to have a big part in the downfall of humanity.

Normally these idiots would be lucky to find 1 or 2 other like minded idiots down the pub. Now they can connect with thousands of other morons like them to reinforce their ideas.


Ianto-Ddu

"UK" population? It'll be a bit more of the English population then. Don't bring us into it! I don't think many Welsh, Scots or Northern Irish want it! (Even those of us who didn't "want England to lose" were just glad that it simply wouldn't be on our screens, on the radio or in the newspapers for the boringly foreseeable future.)

OliverE36

They weren't even red cards lol


Secretfrisbe

I assume one of them was Chiellini for the Saka challenge, but who was the other?


cotch85

Jorginho when he went in studs up on grealish im 99% sure it'd be that can't remember other events that'd be close. 100,000 casual plastic fans want the game replayed nothing more than that. Real followers of the sport know Italy deserved it and the saka challenge was tactically genius.


Starbuckker

Ah yes it was Jorginho. Absolutely agree. It's a was a defending masterclass to be honest. Any defender who was experienced in the rules would have done the exact same thing in the Saka case. Stuff like this annoys me though, it's like the Maradonna thing all over again. Anybody who actually remembers the 1986 game might also remember that we spent the entire game trying to break the guys legs! As it turns out we couldn't get near the bugger, but nevertheless, it would seem in the UK alot of people have a nasty habit of being very sore losers. Also, for the record, I thought Sterling dived against Denmark to get us into the final anyway...so there's that...


TheLastDrops

If it makes you feel any better there was also a petition by Denmark to replay the semi and France to replay Switzerland.


pinkzm

Why the France Switzerland one? Didn't see that game - what was their issue with it? (Other than the fact that they lost)


ReadAllAboutIt92

Mbappe missed a penalty and the French got upset that things didn’t go their way.


TheLastDrops

They say the Swiss keeper didn't have his feet on the line when Mbappe took his penalty.


EvilTalkiToaster

Aye soft penalty but Kane’s take down should have been a penalty so swings and roundabouts. Games done, winners decided. Moving on


Secretfrisbe

Textbook tactical foul that one. It just looked dramatic because he grabbed the collar. There’s a veerry slight chance he could’ve got a red for endangering an opponent for that, but not for me Clive. I thought Sterling’s was a penalty. As I recall, the first challenge knocked him off course and caused the second challenge, which seemed to be an attempt to jockey him out of play, to become an inadvertent body check. It was unfortunate, and a bit soft, but it’s given as a foul anywhere else on the pitch all day. Kane’s attempts to win free kicks on the other hand… embarrassing.


thunderfishy234

"Tactically genius", it was dirty and red card worthy


cotch85

A red card on which rule?


thunderfishy234

The fact that he committed a foul and yanked him down by his neck, all without even attempting to get the ball. Off the ball fouls are all the Italians were doing all game


cotch85

Thats not a red, its a yellow. You can't twist the rules when it favours you.


thunderfishy234

If an England player had done the same thing I would also expect a red card, it's not about twisting the rules it's about deterring players from being malicious and dirty. When a player goes in for a tackle and commits a foul there is a high chance that it was accidental and shit happens, when you foul a player without any attempt to get the ball or make a tackle it's not an accident which is red card worthy, if you hit a player you get sent off, so why is it okay to grab a player by the back of their collar and literally yank them to the floor?


cotch85

Pulling their shirt is a yellow not a direct red, a red is dangerous play like 2 footed, studs up. Jorginho could have been sent off but it was misfortune rather than intentional or stupidity. Chiellini' foul wasn't a goalscoring opportunity as the Italians had enough players capable of coming back. People tactical foul all the time in the prem, they get yellows for the most part. I dont care if its okay or not, it's not a red card or something you'd expect a red card from. If England did it, it'd have been a yellow and we'd be praising the player like we praised dier for his needless tackle on ramos


thunderfishy234

I wouldn't have been praising it, that's my point. I praised Denmark's goal against us because it was a good goal , I'm biased in the sense that I want my team to win but If somethings wrong or right then I call it out for both sides.


cotch85

Good for you. You're a model citizen let me get you a Blue Peter badge. The majority would act as they've acted in similar circumstances and praise it, I know I would. That valverde tackle on morata to win the cup final is genuinely outstanding, got a straight red but won the cup for real madrid, you think their fans were like no im not celebrating this we cheated. Or suarez handballing vs Ghana. Its a competitive match, not the good samaritans


Starbuckker

That was never a red anyway. And it's Bonnuci I believe ...


Daleftenant

I think there IS a discussion to be had about wether the current tactical foul rules are working properly, in light of what Chiellini did, but I don’t think there’s any productive discussion in trying to re-litigate the match.


Starbuckker

I don't endorse what he did but the rules are fair. A yellow card was suitable for that in any game.


Daleftenant

That’s not really an actual argument in favor of not changing the rules on professional fouls, but ok?


Starbuckker

I don't think it needs changing. Why would a foul like that be deemed worth taking more serious action over?


Daleftenant

Because given that Chilleni took the action knowing that he would get a yellow, and did it anyway in order to stop play, demonstrates that the yellow wasn’t a sufficient deterrent to that action. The important factor to my eye is not just that he choked out another player, but that he did so without any reasonable ability to get the ball. Demonstrating an intent beyond the simple advantage and showing that this foul was tactical, and designed to stop play.


thunderfishy234

Exactly, it's one thing to try and make a tackle and accidently committing a foul, it's something completely different when you commit a foul without any intention of getting the ball, there needs to be a deterrant


socio-pathetic

Sin bin for 5 or 10 mins after a yellow card would have prevented the constant fouling by the Italians in the second half of the match. It’s the only match in the tournament that any team would have behaved like that. Every other match they would have feared being banned for a subsequent game.


thunderfishy234

100% agree.


Codemonkey1987

I thought this too. Where do you draw the line. Is it ok to body slam someone if they have the ball and you are the only person between them and goal, just a yellow mate it was professional. I'm not disputing Italy's win, but going for another player with your hands and no where near the ball essentially wrestling them to the floor should be a red. Especially if you are the last person between them and the GK


Starbuckker

By that argument all diving should be red carded. Its pretty-planned, callous, they know they could get yellow carded and It's potential detrimental to the career of the player who has 'supposedly' caused it. I understand it looked bad on camera but actually it's not that bad. I think any other the England players would have done it. You can't actually, 'technically' prove that Chilleni did it on purpose either, especially without the benefit of hindsight. If we treated everything that was 'intended to stop play' as a more serious offence, the game would be unbearable. We don't constantly need more rules, what we need is the ethics of the players to be good, but with that of a winning mentality also. I belive when Chilleni grabbed Saka he did not intend to hurt him, it was a shirt pull after all... He simply was not going to let Saka past him due to the high stakes, and if I were Italian I'd completely love him for it. Football is about moments like that. When players are balancing such passion and impulse within the rules, at tense times, things will happen, especially with great sporting characters like Chilleni! For the record, if sake had been past the last man, bearing down on goal, it would have easily been a red.


thunderfishy234

On your last point, just because Saka wasn't near the goal at the time it doesn't mean he wouldn't have had a chance on goal, Chiellini intentionally grabbed him and pulled him back because he knew that If he didn't then he wouldn't be able to catch up with Saka.


Starbuckker

It happened on the touchline! There's no way in hell it was in a position to have a chance on goal.


Uncle_gruber

Because you're playing football and not wrestling?

lu13na

I was at Wembley, as much as it pains me, the best side won. To be honest, they were the best side in the tournament with England probably the 2nd best, worked out well in the end. I would argue that the Jorginho one was a red card, the Chiellini one was absolutely not red by the letter of the law. If that was Maguire, I’d say it was the right foul and right booking to take given the circumstances. None of the above is an argument for replaying the final ya fucking dopes. There’s no argument for replaying the semi final either.


Starbuckker

irregardless I just think they fucking won. they put that whole choking thing as a thumbnail and using it as a mascot for their campaign but it wouldn't have changed a thing. what would've happened is that they'd gotten close, gotten tackled, Italy has possession again. these fucking idiots stretching that it was a guaranteed goal they stole from us and therefore we should've won is bullshit. we lost. I think the guy fully choking that poor lad was fucking unethical and if it is legal, should not be. but we fucking lost so get the fuck over it. its football, just because you put your entire fucking paycheck on it like an absolute tosser doesn't mean the entire nation has to vote for a rematch. the same people that are calling for a rematch are the same people that are saying the ONLY poc on the team let the entire nation down and should never play again. shut the fuck up, I'm glad you're invested, I was too. I was really disappointed we didn't win, but it's a fucking game. it's not that deep. I actually despise how popular football is, how can any self respecting human being be so fully into it. I spend my waking days most of the time on my fucking xbox because I'm unemployed and waiting to go to uni, and still I wouldn't start throwing racial abuse if a black guy came in with a bat and smash it to peices. utter fucking morons.


mariokart290

I was supporting England in the final(shock), but am an actual qualified referee in the lower levels. They can whinge all they like, but it wasn't a red card. It could have been if Saka was clear on goal, but he was out wide, hence not an "obvious goal scoring opportunity". Yellow was right decision and the refereeing was on point that evening


Starbuckker

Agreed! Try telling that to all this sofa critics though!


tupped

The mindless pissed up and racist idiots were a national embarrassment. These idiots are a national cringe.


Solo-me

I would start a petition because it s not fair the players had to travel so much over the tournament, euro has always been hosted in 1 nation. Our man had to travel..... Oh wait.. Ops didn't happen for England.


MagnusBruce

It smacks of being a sore loser. I think that at least one red card should have been given, but that probably wouldn't have affected the result of the match as the incidents were in the dying minutes of extra time. The penalties would probably have gone the same way. I'm sad that we didn't see an England win, and frustrated that the ref didn't take proportionate action, but it's not like the world cup and women's euros (which is being hosted in England) aren't happening next year to give two more very realistic shots at tournament victory.


LiftEngineerUK

Semi Finals last World Cup. Finals this Euro’s. Don’t get me wrong, I’m broken-hearted we lost on penalties. But we got there, and I watched it surrounded by mates who were all fucking thrilled we weren’t eliminated in the last 16. Germany onwards were all absolute gifts to be treasured. Yes I hope Chielini’s arsehole grows tastebuds, but I’m not gonna let that ruin the absolutely brilliant time we had on our way. It’s just a crying shame the worst types of people get paid the most attention


jamesbeil

We'll never see it again in our lifetimes. Easiest run to a final you could get, all at home against teams who have travelled thousands of miles.

Agree with all this. England probably did get lucky with their matches, but it's not like those teams hadn't earnt their place in the last 16/quarters/semis.

Honestly there’s a section of England fans who’ve made this whole thing embarrassing. Racially abusing players, storming the stadium without tickets, booing anthems, booing players taking the knee regardless of the racism they endure, demanding rematches, it just goes on and on. Don’t expect us to be given proper hosting rights anytime soon with this abhorrent shit going on, we don’t deserve it. Absolutely disgusting. As for a rematch, maybe don’t sit back at 1-0 for 88 mins plus 30 and not make any subs or react tactically to what the other team are doing. Maybe don’t rely on a 19 year old whose never taken a penalty to take the most important one in 55 years? Then they wouldn’t need one.

[deleted]

In that case they'll need to replay Denmark first, there's no way that penalty was the right call


lindsaydentonscat

the fans need to grow up and stop blaming the ref and the italian players. yes some of the tackles were dirty, but that doesn't change the fact that England didn't press on after the first goal, you can't do that against a quality team like Italy, you need to go full on attack.


JunglistJUT

Shakey ground when they got there with a penalty they didn’t really deserve


McGubbins

When Chiellini grabbed Sako's shirt and yanked him backwards, I certainly shouted that he should be have been sent off, but I don't get to make those decisions - the referee had a different opinion. That's football - the referee's in charge. End of story.


Daleftenant

I also don’t like the idea that we only care about on pitch conduct when we loose. Like wether Chiellini was red carded or not probably wouldn’t have changed the outcome. But that’s not a reason to ignore what he did.

While i do think Italy were bit rough in there tactics were does it end nature of the game sadly we shouldn't had that penalty against denmark its football and we lost but it qas a hell of good ride and as a causal fan i am looking forward to the world cup


Anjirocks

Wow, people are ridiculous. I think we got that when they racially abused the poor boys who missed the penalties. Repeat after me: it’s only a game...

"Expecting an extended warranty on a cup final is not a thing Gammon-faced England fans!" - Fixed that for you.


cockatootattoo

Can I just clarify that it’s not Britain. I don’t think many Scottish or Welsh people signed it, unless they just wanted to see England lose again.


Scottish_bollocks

Extended warranty on a cup final is not a thing Britain. Hang on pal leave us Scots/Welsh and N.Irish out of this. Well done ITALY

Whining football fans yet again. Got sick of hearing footballs coming home, when in reality FOOKALLS coming home.


metroplex313

OK people that don’t like football, the fun’s over, you can go back to not liking football and return for the next international tournament.


x2tizzle

I mean we got fucked by the ref yet again and the ref knew full well that was a neck grab. We get fucked all the time but no need for a replay... just get better refs next time. Preferably unbiased ones. Also after the actions of racism and disgusting behaviour by the “fans” we don’t deserve a replay.


Ppthrowawaypppp

Bro theres literally millions of retards and sub 75 IQ people in this country, 100k isnt a lot. Youre being hysterical by judging a small fraction of thr countries imbeciles. Stupid are gunna stupid.


MCfru1tbasket

I didn't see you telling all the danes to shut up over the semi final. Either way, the petition is accepting pay pal donations so it's a cash grab and nothing more, so maybe chill out.


Starbuckker

Well that's not my country... and this is british problems reddit anyway, so why would I do that? Chill out.


wizdomquizdom

They played a predictably dirty game, clocked up the yellows as usual and the ‘ref’ waived them through as always. But Beda Fomm was a different matter entirely. No ‘ref’ then, eh?


SallyKhunt

Happy happy troll land.


mas-sive

It’s a rubber material that gets moved around by people who are on 200,000k and fans don’t actually get anything in return 🤷🏽‍♂️. So yeah, why are people signing the petition, it’s just bonkers


sp1z99

The disgusting behaviour of some England fans in the aftermath of the final should veto this idea, even if it were somehow to gain some traction.


AllHailTheWinslow

By all means, do a re-play. In Rome, with no British fans allowed into the country.


gnarly13

And I thought this was a "Boaty MacBoat Face" thing when it first surfaced :)


Yugatron

A petition to replay the final……. I thought I couldn’t laugh at you lot any harder, how pathetic.


steelneil82

Probably started by one of the brain-dead apes that forced their way into the stadium without a ticket


HelplessTuber

England*** Only England wants this from Britain :)


TetchyTechy

Kind of true, the ref bottled it there was a slide tackle on declan rice from behind and saka had his shirt pulled and he was dragged down on the touchline. The ref should have stamped his authority on the match from the start, simply he was a joke and his weakness to make a decision on important incidents was a big advantage to italy and italy played to it knowing they could get away with it. I also remember someone getting elbowed, grealish rings a bell, so the refs inaction ruined what should have been a fair contest.


bradbrazer

Yes, they were bad fouls and yes they could and 1 should have resulted in a red but your never going to get a replay, a result is a result and you can't change that. If they actually see our 3rd gold in the world cup 1966 would that have been a goal, but of course that shouldn't be replayed because that threatens us to loose our cup, shut up and live with the result


TheTwoFingeredBrute

Surely to God this has to be a joke and not being taken seriously? How pathetic people can be.


flyhmstr

We're bad losers, we're worse winners.


highlystick

I really don't get it. It's not like the Euros matter. All that matters is that second star.
