A real shame. The referee just destroyed the match after sending off Mikel. Pretty boring match IMO, and feel a bit sorry for Chelsea. The referee standards have gone down so much these days.

 

Mikel deserved the red card. A player who jumps studs first while still upright deserves a harsh penalty.

Well the commentators made more out of the Mikel incident than needed. The referee could have let him off with a yellow card though (Lee Bowyer got off without a card for his two footed tackle on Noble earlier), I thought the Joe Cole tackle on Ronaldo was much worse and definitely deserved a Red.

bad refereeing....mikel shouldnt have got the red and saha shouldnt have got that penalty....but there was a tackle from behind by joe cole (dont remember on who) in the first half which shouldve been a penalty

Does it really matter?

Sure, studs first would deserve a harsh penalty, but it was a 50-50 ball. It wasn't intentional, and had the possession of the ball at the time. It was poor technique from him, but it was at best a yellow card. Joe Cole deserved a red card for sure, but he got a yellow. People say that balances Mikel's decision, but look at the timing of both decisions. Mikel's sending off was decisive in the end. And don't make me start on Saha's ridiculous dive :eyebrow2:

 

I am so disappointed by Liverpool. Sure, Birmingham were playing for the draw, but that was expected. Rafa rotation policy is pretty stupid. Not playing Torres was a big mistake. Actually, I was expecting him to go for 3-3-4 formation. Well......

 

But who cares, Indian WON :( and Yuvraj got 1 crore :)
