    Has a point about Evans. Both players go to ground at pace in opposite directions. He's very lucky that a) Shelvey caught him rather than the other way round and b) he wasn't seriously injured.

    Basically said he thinks it's a fair decision but Evans is completely out of control too and might be lucky to get away with it. Said he would have considered booking both players.

    It can do, if United had been one-up then the game is over, or against lesser oppo. Seen it dozens of times. In this situation, probably no.

    I always say that the last World Cup final, was a perfect example of sending offs maybe making a game better, if they'd happened. Couldn't have been any worse.

    I'm old School, so I would have just booked Shelvey, but as Citizen Neville said, Evans was just as wild, so send them both off.

    Yeah definitely. Also a good illustration of what I was saying earlier about the odd English fervent opposition to bookings.

    Only surprise is that it took 46 minutes. United's abject inability to show up at Anfield year after year getting really boring.

    Well deserved lead for Liverpool though - absolutely pantsing us.

    Penalty, pure and simple. Don't care if he did a triple-pike after, contact and another wild challenge from Evans.

    Didn't see the first half. Why did Shelvey have a go at Old Purple Chops when he was on his way to an early bath?

    I mean, aside from being a cock, obvz. Had Ferguson said something?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    We're still second best here. Looks like we're the ones with ten men.
