The Frenchman was charged with marking Rudiger but the German got a run on Pogba and the defender used Victor Lindelof to buy himself an ocean of space so he could head past De Gea. Arms flung up, eyes rolled to the back of his head, Paul Pogba was searching for someone – anyone – to blame but himself. The margins are fine in any match but they’re especially tight in the ‘big’ matches. Mistakes are, more often that not, punished and a player of Antonio Rudiger’s aerial prowess barely needs half the space that Pogba afforded him midway through the first half to capitalise. It was the fourth goal United had conceded from a corner this season and they’re fifth from a set-piece. The goal threatened to disintegrate Uni...

Aint The Rule Of Law A Bitch 1

I AM currently almost half way through my LLM Programme in the area of ‘International Law And Diplomacy’. Quite an interesting area of law, you should know. And I love the most the aspect of it called ‘International Humanitarian Law’ -otherwise referred to as the ‘Law of  Conflict’. Or the ‘Law of War’. Yes, you heard right; the ‘law of war’!
