Diego translated it to these exact words on the match day thread. When did Colgate and the ref become experts in Portuguese? As if we needed it at this point in time.
The puta word (in Spanish anyway) can be tricky, depending on the context. When you hear South American or Mexican crowds yelling it on every goal kick, it's been explained to me by South Americans that the context is an anti-gay slur. On the other hand, if he called him an SOB, that is something else entirely.
Hoping for the truth to win out here as it would be awful for someone to be suspended just because of how serious an accusation is (and not because the accusation is proven).
But that shove into the stand...that's an open and shut case for a suspension.
BTW, Martin Tyler did make it clear there was no spit in that bustup, and said later the reason the 4th official got involved was that a member of the medical team (I think Everton's) was sent to the stand afterward.
One o ther thing, a question: When it all broke out, Tom Davies, wearing his sub bib, ran onto the park. Isn't that
a sending off as well?
