Actually I'm not so sure Ronaldo's challenge is a yellow only offence. He seemed to be seeking revenge for a fair tackle on him earlier and when he spoke to the referee asking about the earlier event, the referee viewed that Ronaldo only had intent to injure. Therefore a red was given.

You see his 5 finger salute? Had to chuckle. Still think his instincts are almost as good as they ever were, he just doesn't have the legs. City have an excellent player with undoubted experience. Plus he's a prolific mancbuster!
No, i must have missed it. I'm guessing it's something to do with his goal celebration

If he had intent to injure then he would have been closer to Cole than by a few feet. Another bad refereeing decision and added to that the fact that City first goal was offside we need video evidence.

He was taking the piss. It used to be 4 fingers, to wind them up when they gave him stick. Now it's 5 fingers, 5 european cups...

Chelsea are losing 1:0. I'm not sure it will stay that way cos Chelsea often come back, but it's nice to see.

Yeap look at the Ronldo one yesterday. High tackle but never touched him.

I think refs need to sit down and discuss the rules with each other and make a decision to be consistent. It's getting stupid, some things some refs let lie and others hand out cards like they are sweeties.

I think now teams figure which ref they have and play accordingly, knowing whether or not they can push the boundaries.



PS If it had been Sunderland player being sent of I suppose I would have laughed then, it still is silly.
