and Fellaini lost his mind, in the space of 30 seconds or so he managed to achieve quite a lot. Tim Fosu-Mensah, step right up!
is one big reason a lot of people dislike football.
I would have given Fellaini a red and Aguero a yellow for simulation. What a pussy.
And let the FA handle it from there.
Fellaini should have been gone regardless, but that kind of 'embellishment' puts the official in a terrible position. Because it isn't truly a dive, nor simulation. Just silly exaggeration.
Not to mention I believe simulation can only be called during the run of play - so if you book him there, it has to be for 'misconduct' which has its own set of standards.
edit: I'm going to correct myself. He can be booked for unsporting behavior there - 'shows a lack of respect for the game'. Works for me. The line that allows for a caution for simulation deliberately uses the word 'foul' and what Fellaini did was not a foul.
Jose said it best after the match - 'bit of red, bit of a smart Argentinian'.
Worst 24 match unbeaten streak ever.
1. the gap widen between Chelsea and United by 9
2. the gap widen between Spurs and United by 5
3. 11 draws to some rather pedestrian (!!!) competition
4. an ascent from seventh to fifth.
Yeah there have been more impressive streaks.
