Ooh, The FA Saw Sense!

Ooh, The FA Saw Sense!

Wayne Rooney wasn't charged after kissing his badge at Goodison Park which many deemed to be an inflammatory incident. However, the FA announced that as Wiley dealt with it on the field there's no need for further investigation.

So, in short: the FA acted sensibly. Ring the alarm bells, someone infiltrated Soho Square! No, really, who would have thought it? After all, Gary Neville was punished for simply celebrating a goal at Old Trafford so I expected another ridiculous decision.

But don't get carried away just yet. This time the FA saw sense but it won't happen too often - and certainly not when a United player is involved.

It just makes SENSE for a change. Rooney didn't have his best game, but WHY should you be punished for simply kissing a badge when Everton fans have been shouting constant abuse? (It wasn't a yellow anyway - that was down to the fans). But, encouragingly, in terms of the referee, Rooney really seems to have grown up. Where last season he'd have sworn and complained, when he was booked, he walked away calmly and let Giggs shout his corner, before coming back and listening to the referee when asked to. Has he finally controlled his temper? This could be the mature Rooney we have waited so long for.
