According to Talksport Rooney has been sent off for elbowing someone in a friendly tonight
The referee should take a drugs test for that decission
Nowhere near an elbow. Rooney was running towards the guy and jumped with his hand open and headed the ball. Rooney's hand went in the side of the guy's face and, of course, he went down like a sack of ****.
Very, very harsh red card.
He barely touched him, not anywhere close to being worth a yellow, let alone a straight red.
There were good odds on Rooney being sent off as well!
Totally off topic I know but you should have seen the odds on Pietersen being top scorer today - I hate it when I miss stuff like that - a Rooney red card would have been a decent bet
Scholes red carded too.
sounds like the ref is trying to make a name for himself..
who they playing, what's the score, and is carrick playing?
JUmp, hand to face. Red card deserved.
do be serious, there was no intent. The premiership has that situation most weeks
Rubbish. That was unintentional - Rooney never looked at the player and the hand in the face was accidental. Never in a million years a red card.
I judge would say "he has previous" GUILTY AS CHARGED!
it takes all of Shreks energy and determination to get off the ground, no way could he intentionally slap someone at the same time
Complete joke of a red card, if that's submitted the FA had better throw it out.
Isn't previous kept secret for fear of influencing the trial . Not that I'd know of course
Throw the book at him!
Lovely unbiased opinion there.
Anyway, here's a vid of it for people who've not seen it.
Sure contact was minimal but that's because imho Rooney knew he was there - therefore there needn't had been contact. Sure a bit of getting stuck in, show you're about, never hurt - so maybe yellow but I can understand the red. Let's not pretend Rooney was completely innocent eyes on the ball - I presume Rooney has 20/20 vison and has top notch peripheral vision to spot red cads et al
It looked quite deliberate to me - I wonder what had gone on earlier - maybe the Roon monster extracting retribution. Anyway it must be frustrating for him to be playing in the worst United side in years. I forsee many more red cards to come whilst he plays in such a poor side that rely on him so heavily.
I await the onslaught from Utd fans
Does anyone remember him in that Holland friendly? Christ.
It wasnt' that bad!
Still, the FA will have to give him a ban, somewhere around 38 games will do...........
Solksjaer took an elbow to the face going for a header from (I think) the same guy, it seemed to annoy most of the team when it went completely un-punished.
It looked more like Solskjaer headbutted the blokes elbow!
I'd like to stick his head in a bowl of hot soup.
