It appears the tibia is displaced anteriorly before it pops back posteriorly.
These days with all the camera angles and high-quality video we really see injuries up close and in slow motion. Nauseating.
*Update: It’s ACL rupture.
I think Kit Crimes and Away Kit Watch are slightly more concerned with clubs wearing symbolic and recognizable colors while avoiding kit clashes and nakedly commercial kit decisions, whereas I am slightly more concerned with players telling each other apart on the pitch than club colors. Either way, we all have a point.
Of course Chelsea wore blue away to Tottenham last night, there’s no reason why they couldn’t. But it made their decision to wear yellow at Wembley in November all the more baffling. pic.twitter.com/ZN0mD6UuaZ— Kit Crimes ⚽️ (@KitCrimes) January 9, 2019
Yes, home teams should wear home kits, and officials usually make that a priority, but that is not always possible. Some of these cases keeping home teams in their home kits are downright ridiculous.
Huddersfield’s home kit is blue and white, and that obviously does not clash with red. But, to sell jerseys, they wore yellow instead.
Obviously need to shift some of those horrible shirts https://t.co/B89t74UVir— Away Kit Watch (@awaykitwatch) January 5, 2019
Remember this gem from 2016?
Apparently Arsenal’s red/white kit was shelved in favor of black/yellow against a team wearing yellow/black. This is capital punishment territory.
Arsenal made an interesting kit choice vs. Watford. Would their home red kit have made more sense? pic.twitter.com/X0uv6ooOaO— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) August 27, 2016
What an absolutely mesmerizing top-of-the-table match today between Manchester City and Liverpool!
We already saw how well VAR worked at the World Cup last summer. How in 2019 the “traditionalists” (read: dinosaurs) are still debating using technology in soccer is absolutely baffling…
They both have a similar home kit, and West Ham wore their third kit here. But, Burnley has an all-black away kit and West Ham has a teal blue away kit with yellow socks.
Quite an interesting and unusual offside situation.
Brighton takes a corner. The ball evades everyone. Until it hits Everton’s Andre Gomes, who totally didn’t expect it, and bounces to Jurgen Locadia, who is in an offside position and scores.
But he has not committed an offside offence. That’s the difference.
