Was the red card Steven Gerrard given against Manchester United for his challenge on Carrick correct?
Being a Liverpool fan, I would say that it was not a red card but if that had been a Manchester United player who put in a tackle like that I would have called for a red card as Gerrard went in with two feet and left the ground. It was a harsh decision to give the red card especially in such a big game. If I were Howard Webb, I would have given Gerrard a yellow card and a talking to.
But then what pisses me off is that Raphael went in with a two footed tackle on Raul and nothing was awarded. Where is the consistency then? Raphael should also have been sent off for his tackle but then they are arguing that he won the ball but what if he had missed? He would have broken Raul’s ankle.
Now Gerrard will miss 3 games for Liverpool and I wonder how much of an impact that will be.
