    Let's put it to a vote...Rom guilty or not guilty?...

    please log in to view this image


    I thought it was a yellow personally because I don't think there was a lot of intent and it probably looked worse than it was,

    Cos it was a Saints player. Had it been the other way round everyone would have spent the day screaming United bias.

    No bias here, just don't think that the impact and intent justified a red.

    Criteria for serious foul play:
    Was excessive force used?
    Did he endanger the safety of the player?
    Nothing at all about intent or impact.

    If the answer to one or both questions is yes it's a red card. And Romeu did endanger the safety of Greenwood - could easily have broken his ankle.

    Of course the impact is important I don't think it was excessive enough just a bit clumsy.

    Because he wasn't looking at his feet, it was a clumsy mistimed tackle and that is my final opinion on it.

    Not enough meaty tackles about these days, I applaud Oriol.

    I reckon Danny Ings could punch someone in the face and some would still say he shouldn't be sent off.

    No red to me. The intent wasn't there.

    I know I cant have the last word though, so I will give you all the word on the street












    STOP!

    or

    GIVE WAY

    I'm afraid that I agree with your call on this. Much as I like Romeo, who has got his mojo back, if this had been committed by Pogba et al this board would be in melt down .
