apart from a leeds player not being allowed to so much as look at an arsenal player to give a free kick, i have a serious issue,
if anyone watched the game, at 10 mins 22 secs, sagna was fouled by howson, sagna went past the player, who had run across him, and he clipped sagna. it was exectly the same as rafaels challenge that got him a yellow card, his 2nd in the game.
how can a ref give a player a yellow, then 4 days later the exact same challenge, give nothing except a free kick.
the fa are quick to act on players stepping out of line (rightly so) but why are the fa not pulling people up like this ref and asking what was the difference between rafaels and howsons tackles to warrant 1 getting booked the other not.
answer..................the person, simple as that, but, it did confirm the ref was wrong to give a yellow and he showed that in public view, he cheated us.
and let the goners have the run of the park because an inferior side were not allowed to tackle.

Your right Dean is weak!
The sending off against the Spurs was a poor decision. Rafael is going to be an awesome player. But he was very lucky not have been sent off before the non-foul. His first against Palacios could have seen red and simulating a card gesture is such an awful thing to see and could have seen a card.
On a plus, Rafael has appologised and accepted his punishment, which shows maturity, maybe he can tach rooney a thing or two there!
