    Although the refereeing was awful, you can’t bust into the locker room and confront them. Expect some suspensions over this one. Those could carry into international duty this summer and have an effect on Chile or Poland as they work on qualifying for Russia.

    Jack Wilshere broken leg = Emerson Hyndman has an opening at Bournemouth right?? That could be a big chance for Emo and may change the calculus of AFCB. At the very least, it reduces the likelihood that Bournemouth buys Wilshere and sells Emo. I hope they give him a shot in the Fall and then sell him in the winter window if he doesn’t crack the squad.
