Should it Have Been Three?

Should it Have Been Three?

There`s no denying that the fixture yesterday, against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, ended in a feisty fashion.

After Javier Hernandez had sneaked the winner, from what appeared to be an offside position, the game nearly got out of hand.

One particular incident saw John Obi Mikel and Antonio Valencia clash, a coming together that saw Valencia receive a yellow card, an incident that left Sir Alex Ferguson puzzled and prompted the following outburst as he conducted his post match interview

"I thought it was a bit tasty when Chelsea were down to nine men and I can`t understand the booking of Antonio because he was right through and there was no reason for him to go down."

"I think he was definitely taken out and he`s been booked for it because it was Mikel and he had already been booked."

"I think that`s the reason the referee had to do that because he would have had to send Mikel off."


An interesting view but, on this occasion, I thought it was all much ado about nothing, how about you?

The ref had not handed us 3 points - he reffed poorly - but that is not down to us - we won the game - yes we had the rub of the green and the luck - but this is karma for past matches......

If Torres second yellow wasn't a yellow (still can't work out how it's an argument seeing as he was fortunate to be on the pitch at that point anyway) then Valencia's yellow wasn't a yellow but yet another bad decision by the ref during the game against us which goes unnoticed simply because we won.
