Video Poll: Which Person Deserved The Red Card?

Our current Vital Manchester City front page poll question asks...

Which person deserved the red card?

This is in response to Vincent Kompany being given the red card regarding his tackle on Nani on Sunday and Glen Johnson's two-footed challenge on Joleon Lescott last night.

Take a look for yourselves and decide.

Vincent Kompany



Glen Johnson



Tell us what you think.

Neither but according to the FA's rules both. Notice the City players didn't appeal, is it right not to appeal to the ref? It appears to me to be wrong. It seems that you should appeal otherwise you will be punished.

We're all going to end up chasing the ref like the ManYoo role models. Seems to be the accepted way by the media to influence the outcome of football matches.

Neither did, both won the ball cleanly. But if the laws of the game are to be applied correctly, both should have received red cards. Kompany saw red, Johnson didn't. That's why City fans are justifiably angry about this. The FA are a joke. We need more transparency here. There's no black and white, just grey. As Skoorb said in the forums, it's a win/win for the crony ********s and it suits them to have it that way.

I think what we've learned over the past 3 days is that the difference between Kompany's tackle and Johnson's tackle is the haranguing of the referee. And we all know how well drilled the Rag scum are on doing just that.

Perhaps we should get Lescott to bang on about the tackle on Twitter while we're at it - worked for Pubehead and Turdinand, why can't it work for us? Neither deserved red, Johnson perhaps yellow, but by the letter of the law as so clearly revealed to Vincent Kompany, Johnson should be cooling his heels for 3 games. Stupid, senseless and utterly without regard for anyone - that's the FA, not Glen Johnson.

Johnson was an ankle breaker if ever I saw one...definite red card. Kompany's was an amazing tackle.

Dermot Gallagher on SSN: "The law is quite specific" - is he 'avin a laff?? He goes on to say that Johnson's was far worse than Kompany's.

If the law is quite specific then what is stopping the FA being transparent when it comes to the appeals process? Why not publish a report on their findings?

This tackling is proving too much of a problem. I give in. Let's get rid of it. Moulded soles all round!

BOTH RED! It does not matter if the ball was won cleanly. The shear intimidating nature of both tackles make the opposing player (rightfully) bottle the challenge. They need to be RED cards because we do not want to see this form of tackling anymore. It is DELIBERATE because it is unnatural to jump into a tackle with 2 feet, and impossible to do by accident. Send ALL players off for doing this. We need to DISCOURAGE it NOW. This is NOT FOOTBALL.
