One of them is an adult, the other is a child. Kid was running after the ball Hazard pressed him.

Oh it was apparent he was wasting time. However kicking him in the ribs to get the ball back probably wasn't the best way to solve it.

The kid got in his way and refuse to give him the ball. Then laid on top of it so Hazard couldn't get it.

The video shows that he kicked the ball and it wasn't even that hard. The kid just did his favorite soccer impression and pretended that it hurt. He obviously wanted the attention and from his pre-game tweet, he was prepared to be a little **** to get it.

I couldn't see the video super clearly, but from what I saw he was going after the ball when Hazard came up on him maybe Hazard hit him which lead to that. I think he went on top of purposely but if Hazard wasn't there, he likely wouldn't have done that. Again, one is a kid one is an adult. Even if he kicked the ball, his follow through may have hit the kid in the ribs. You flat out don't know what 100% happened, but again, Hazard is an adult, the kid is a kid.

From the video I posted it don't think you can definitively say that the only thing he kicked was the ball. I highly doubt he didn't get a bit of ball boy along the way.

Both parties in this behaved like twats. However, one of those parties is a teenage ball boy. The other is a professional footballer who is paid millions per year. Guess who the onus and expectation is on to make the right decision?

I'm definitely not saying that the ball boy deserved the way he was treated, but I have absolutely no sympathy for him.

Heck yes. It looked like the Arsenal of old. Quick decisive play. Sharp passing that picked apart the Hammers defense. Sadly I'm not optimistic that this will catch on again.

Should have just stepped on his hands. Ballboy was a jerk, that was purposeful. Should have been behind the boards anyway. Ballboy knew what he was doing, was his last game cause he's too old to do that stuff. Reminds me of HS games where both teams are bad and the seniors want to be thrown out for fighting in their last game. Happens a lot, cause for some there is nothing left to play for.

The hazard v ball idiot reminds me of a story a college professor told me of his boyhood. In the backwoods of Knox county TN he and his friends would 'potato' cars as they pulled up to a stop sign from up on the top of a 6 or 10 foot bank right next to the road. 'Potato' here means throw 1-3 potatoes. One day they did this and the guy got out of his car cursing and screaming, proceeded to pull out a rifle and starts shooting, they all of course ran away. Once they were safely away and all laughing one of them said he was out of breath, then collapsed, he'd been shot through a lung, idiot kid lived. Never found out who did it. My reaction was both he asked for it, and it's really stupid to attempt to shoot someone over a dent in a car. Seems to apply here.
