The FA bottles it again. By all means fine Adebayor for failing to leave the field of play but if you arnt rescinding the red card then you have to ask why another 5 players werent sent off, complete joke

It's being blown way out of proportion. The only nasty thing was that the **** Eboue slapping Bridge on the neck. But even that was hardly anything and was no way powerful enough to floor a full grown man.
I wonder if Fabregas had flung himself to the floor when Drogba slapped him whether Drogba would have been sent off.
my points exactly...it was mostly handbags out there...wayne bridge made a meal out of it.
eboue, mikel, lampard and toure was nothing but a tussel.

Great match, now people only talks about what happened with the fight and not about the match, shame really.
A huge shame. The first all London League Cup final, the last at the Millenium Stadium, and a match which was played in good spirit until the handbags moment. Greatful of Arsenal's physiotherapist on the match too and I am pleased to see Terry deliberately made the team wait so he can personally thank him. Even though I'd say it's common courtesy, I can't see every footballer doing that for granted.
Hope to see more Chelsea-Arsenal fixtures played in good spirit.
