Soft penalty but there was contact and Agger was daft for lunging when there was no need to, Gerard was a definite sending off, you only have to look at Dalglish`s body language to see that. He viewed in on the monitor and then walked away without making any comment to the 4th official.
There was minimal contact, and from his position on the pitch, you can see why Webb gave it, but Berba blatantly dived and it wasn't enough for a penalty for me. It's one of the problems of the modern game. Footballers are seemingly taught that if contacts felt to go to ground. Allardyce as good as said at HT that he would have expected a striker to go to ground if he felt contact.
There can be no arguments for the red. Off the ground and two footed. Easy decision to make

agreed steve!! finally a utd fan who doesnt think if he admits a utd player did wrong then he is less of a fan.
berb dived. gerrard was a reckless lunge. some days the ref will let u off with a yellow, some days the ref will give u a red.
but with webb in charge & the match being against utd, it was always going to be red.
