No Further Ban For Rooney

No Further Ban For Rooney

Wayne Rooney will be available for the visit to Sunderland despite being sent off at Fulham on Saturday. He'll serve a one-match ban.

As his second yellow was a totally unwarranted one (yes, he was angry but that's not against the rules and what he actually did was throwing the ball back to where the free-kick had to be taken) it would have been an absolute travesty had he been forced to miss another game.

Still, with Berba's injury and his suspension we'll have trouble in attack against Aston Villa...

Open your eyes mate. To suggest that he was only throwing the ball back to the place where the free-kick was is like trying to fob off the war on Iraq as a quest to find nuclear weapons.

"what he actually did was throwing the ball back to where the free-kick had to be taken" Ha. Ffs, did the offense take place at the corner of Van Der Saar's penalty area because that's where the ball ended up!? Get real you muppet and think for yourself, not parrot what Fergie tells you to think. Next you'll be telling me that United were the best team when you recently got mullered 4-1 at home.

Howard-It depends my friend, if your talking about the liverpool game then yes liverpool were better but if you take the whole season into account then utd are the best,there are no two ways about that.This team is gunning for everything that lies in front of it,only barcelona can match it.You just can't take two results and degrade utd but yes liverpool on this current form are looking good and credit must be given to them for keeping the title race alive but I won't be surprised to see liverpool choke again,it happens to every team.

abmutd - sorry, the sarcasm was clearly lost on you **groan rolleyes** To spell it out, Fergie was actually quoted as saying that the better team lost at OT a week last Sunday.

Uh, it was a bookable offense, end of. Second yellow = red = sending off = ban. Whether he deserved any further punishment for the way he rreacted is now moot, but you can bet your house on the fact that he only escaped further punishment because he plays for MU and England. If he played for anyone else he'd be out for three.
