So often in football I read about these incidents and think, “Whatever, I didn’t see the game.” Well, this time I DID see the game. And as with almost everyone I missed the elbow to the face that started it all. I can tell you though this was kind of a scrappy match: tackles that didn’t look purposefully malicious but indicated a moral depravity somewhere in the works. PSV is in first place in the Eredivisie, two points ahead of Ajax and now three in front of Feyenoord. There will be blood.
