That Red Card

That Red Card

Many may have thought that the challenge, on Jonny Evans, that saw Jonjo O`Shelvey shown a straight red-card by the referee, Mark Halsey, yesterday, a little harsh.

However, Sir Alex Ferguson didn`t think so and following the successful accumulation of three points had this to say on the subject,

"It was a clear red card. It was a dangerous attempt for the ball. I don`t think he went for the ball."

"Jonny Evans went for the ball and got the ball and the boy has gone in really dangerously. I don`t think there was any other decision the ref could have given."


I`m not so sure myself, how about you?

Evans' challenge was worse than Shelvey's but the benefit of the doubt favours U*d, surprise surprise.

Robin van Persie's was just as bad. Inconsistency as usual.

Except Anfield where in our entire history we've only ever had 4 penalties but no you're right we get ALL of the decisions.... Shelvey deserved his red card, his challenge was dangerous and out of control. That said Evans was the exact same so he should've went too. At the same time the challenge was always a 50/50 and at least Evans one the ball and only ever had eyes on it perhaps the ref took that into consideration and, in my eyes, it makes his decision understandable though granted still not correct.
