Yawn.....this OWNING glory supporters actually begins to get tiresome.
For the perusal of those concerned...
'A sliding tackle is not in itself foul play, however there are a number of fouls that commonly occur during the execution of a sliding tackle.
Examples of such fouls punishable by a direct free kick or penalty kick include:
When a player tackles an opponent to gain possession of the ball, making contact with the opponent BEFORE touching the ball;
When a player in a manner considered by the referee to be careless, reckless or using excessive force: kicks or attempts to kick an opponent;
trips or attempts to trip an opponent;
raises his/her football boots perpendicular to the field (colloquially known as "studs up").'
