Come on folks, let's face it - Vincent Kompany never stood a chance...

I know it wasn't a red card. You know it wasn't a red card. Numerous pundits, journalists, former referees, even ex-rags reacted with complete astonishment to Chris Foy's ludicrous decision to send Vincent Kompany off in the 12th minute of a hotly contested Manchester derby.

But what does it matter? Capricious media-banner, scathing critic of referees and the Football Association, Slur Alex was quickly on the propaganda trail, branding Kompany a dirty player who'd got away with bad challenges literally thousands of time this season already!

Plastic hair wearing serial thug and brandisher of invisible cards Wayne Rugney tweeted his innocence: 'I'm not the ref!'

Boy genius and wannabe gangsta rapper Wio proclaimed 'two footed, red card, end of.'

The FA have already shown the world that Wayne Rugney is their numero uno golden boy and Ingerlund 'talisman' by their cringeworthy defence of the indefensible, ie. having the thug's 3 match ban for a cynical kick out reduced to 2 matches - well done FA, you make me proud of the England team.

But what if Rugney and his master are under the spotlight? What if they are travelling to Zurich the very next day to face European football's elite at the Ballon d'Or awards...?

It simply wouldn't do to have those two pillars of the English game contradicted in such illustrious company would it? Nope, for better or worse, the red nosed Scottish organ grinder and his shaved monkey are the new face of English football, our new ambassadors of all that is right with the game in this country and as such are politically untouchable.

Which makes them right, and everyone else wrong, including those who are technically in the right like Manchester City and Vincent Kompany.

And how do the jury find the accused? Guilty m'lawd.

One of the most noteable facts surrounding "the tackle" is how watching commentators never batted an eyelid and in 5 cases that I have watched, were talking about something else, then saying "hang on a minute, something is happening/ play has stopped." - That wasn't the case when Rooney went after Kranjcar.

I love the way the red-nosed windbag kept banging on about Kompany while he was at the Balon d'or ceremony. We all know the rags will do ANYTHING to win, but that's just disgraceful in my book. Cornered rats will do what cornered rats gotta do I guess. Is it any wonder that UEFA and Fifa don't have much regard for English football if red-neck thugs like Shrek are the "best" we've got? What an embarrasment.

Great piece and spot on. They seem proud to have acted in such a snide, devious underhanded way, they are scum plain and simple.

Rooney didnt 'wave' a red card at the ref - unlike Mr Mancini........
11/01/2012 12:50:00
Are you contradicting the words of your own manager NW? Because he says Pube-head did wave a card.

Slur Alex: "I have no complaints about Wayne, I don't think it was unacceptable what he did.". And therein is a summary of the reason English football is in such a terrible state - the games allegedly "greatest ever manager" condones cheating. He really is King of the canutes.
11/01/2012 13:00:00
I watched the game - didnt see him wave a card at all.......

He certainly said something but didnt wave anything about
11/01/2012 13:04:00
