It looks like this is a story that is going to rumble on and on throughout the season.
When the club starts putting out tweets saying that they are going to be ‘raising a number of issues’ with the PGMOL at the end of the season, then you know that it’s something serious, given that they’ve made it public rather than keeping it in house.
Let’s just hope that it doesn’t turn into this season’s version of ‘Spygate’ though, because that really did get annoying after a while.
The decision to rule out the Blues’ second goal against Middlesbrough on Tuesday has taken yet another twist, with Boro coach Leo Percovich having his say on the matter on his Facebook page where he essentially tried to defend the actions of both himself and the home side’s bench.
Blues fans though were having none of it, as they tore into the Uruguayan on social media for what he had to say about the incident, pointing out that the Middlesbrough bench were more in the wrong than Pep Clotet’s men.
Mr Clotet celebrated the goal because he knew the player wasn’t injured, which turned out to be correct. Cheats.

Sadly don’t have a time machine but would it all have played out the same if we hadn’t scored or if they had countered with the same player down?? 🤔

Ok what a joke he wasn’t even injured he was just sour because we were on the counter attack and scored a Legitimate goal not offside as they have said. Really was it a head injury? I don’t think so. Really very upset by his comments get a grip. The #EFL should award the points.

Regardless of the merits of whether it was a head injury or not the ref should have stopped it immediately or allowed play to petter out before blowing the whistle. Safety of players is paramount however it relies on officials gauging the situation. They failed miserably here

Were the Blues robbed on this occasion?
And with Clotet expecting an FA investigation to take place, this story isn’t going to go away any time soon.
