Arsène Wenger on UEFA rulling that Eduardo Da Silva "deceived the referee"

I am in the opinion that, just like America's NBA games, TV reviews should also be implemented in the soccer pitch in order to help referees and lines men in judging and making correct decisions for some controvesial events that usually occur in the pitch.
And for Edo, stop watching too much Drogba or Liverpool players and many other European soccer players who are so good in faking injuries and falls. It is becoming a trend now. It's so common to hear  lots of 'mouthing' especially from the team coaches and see a lot of deceit from the players. When one succeeds in getting away with one such fake moves, it then becomes a habit.
IMHO, lets enjoy good healthy soccer with no cheating and bad mouthing.
Eduardo Da Silva faces a suspension after UEFA charged the Arsenal striker with 'deceiving the referee' during the Gunners' Champions League victory against Celtic on Wednesday. Gordon Smith, the chief executive of the Scottish FA, had said on Thursday that the Croatia international should be banned, a stance that UEFA president Michel Platini echoed.

Having studied video evidence of the incident in question, the UEFA disciplinary inspector decided to charge the player concerned.... The Uefa control and disciplinary body will examine the case on 1 September.
The charge is based on Article 10, paragraph 1c of the Uefa disciplinary regulations (misconduct of players) which states: "Players may be suspended for two competition matches, or for a specified period, for acting with the obvious intent to cause any match official to make an incorrect decision or supporting his error of judgment and thereby causing him to make an incorrect decision."

Amri yatolewa mabasi ya abiria yawe na mikanda ifikapo Oktoba


Nimefurahi kusoma taarifa inayosema kuwa, amanda wa Kikosi cha Usalama Barabarani nchini Tanzania bwana James Kombe, ametoa amri kwa mabasi yote yanayotoa huduma ya usafiri wa abiria nchini Tanzania kuwa na mikanda kwa ajili ya kulinda usalama wa abiria wawapo safarini. Ni matumai ni yangu kuwa amri hii itatekelezwa na kwamba hatua hii itasaidia sana kupunguza idadi ya watu wanaofariki punde ajali inapotokea. Kwa upande mwingine, ufungaji mikanda utasaidia kupunguza tatizo sugu la kusunda abiria kupita kiwango kilichoidhinishwa jambo ambalo huwasababisha kusimama kwa mwendo wa aghalabu safari nzima.


Akizungumza jijini Dar es salaam jana, Kombe alisema suala la kufunga mikanda katika mabasi sio jambo la hiari na halina mjadala ni wajibu wa kila mmiliki wa basi kuhakikisha anatekeleza agizo hilo kwani ni moja ya sheria za usalama barabarani nchini.

Alisema ifikapo Oktoba mosi basi ambalo litakuwa halijatekeleza agizo hilo litakamatwa na askari na kupelekwa mahakamani pamoja na kulizuia kuendelea kufanya kazi hiyo ya kusafirisha abiria. Amesema jeshi hilo limejipanga vizuri kukabiliana na mabasi ambayo hayatatekeleza agizo hilo na watapewa adhabu kali kwa kudharau agizo hilo.

Amesema lengo la agizo hilo ni kukabiliana na ajali za barabarani zimalizike ama zitoweke kabisa na kila basi linatakiwa liwe na cheses nzuri, na mikanda ya kuvaa abiria wanapokaa kwenye siti kwa kuwa abiria wamekuwa wakijeruhiwa na kufa kwa kukosekana kwa mikanda hiyo
