      Yeah, and if he made contact it could have been 6 months out for Nani, or worse.

      If this had been against anyone other than United, it would barely be a talking point after the game. But of course its United, etc etc....we all know how it goes.

        talk about making things up off the top of your head and then saying it as thou its a fact!

        wow, u know for sure nani would have been out for 6mths!

        u doing that all the time is boring!

        also its just as boring u reading boring posts by me & than replying with thats boring!

        why dont u go to the opera. u hate & find opera boring , but for whatever reason u enjoy being bored so u can say that was boring.

        wow, u know for sure nani would have been out for 6mths!

    • Can't say I'm complaining as he's out of both legs of the League Cup semi, but it was a harsh card, especially that early in the game. But I've also got to say I was not impressed with Fergie's interview after the game where he said it was definitely a red. If memory serves I've seen one of those Brazilian twins (I always get them mixed up) doing the exact same thing a few times last season, but with players jumping out of the way fouls let alone cards were cards were not handed out. I get different people having subjective views on what is and is not a yellow or a red, but as we keep asking for consistency from refs, its hard to be too harsh when managers see things very differently depending on which side of a challenge their players are on.

      • Well we`ve had consistency from the fa. 3 players sent off for similar fouls - Milijas, Barton & Kompany - all 3 appealed to the fa and all 3 appeals were rejected. Whether we like it or not this season the rules have been tightened and as far as I can recall there have been 4 incidents in the last few weeks - Lampard being the 4th - and in 3 of them the players were sent off. Given that refs are only human and are never going to get it 100% right that`s a pretty good level of consistency. As for SAF`s comments and the twins the key factor is that the rules have been tightened this season so what happened in previous seasons - including Callagher on Rafael (funny how you forgot that tackle) - isn`t relevant.
