    Was Vincent Kompany`s red card today against Man UTD truly unjustified?

    Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany was sent off within the first 15 minutes of the FA cup clash between Man UTD and Man City. To say it was harsh, it`s an understatement, but it`s nothing unusual when Man UTD are involved. Of curse it`s changed the game, but even against 10 men Man UTD struggled in the second half. By the way Kompany didn`t even touch Nani, and at that stage there was not even 1 yellow card given to any of the players on the pitch. The EPL is quickly becoming a joke; bring in foreign referees and then we`ll see how many sending offs and penalties the top teams can get.

    Totally unfair. However so bad the player maybe, his tackle didn't even warrant a yellow card. Had the game been fair, City would have torn United apart. Really disappointed. However, the red card made the game more balanced in all honesty. Had he not been carded, the game would have been a City show only. Lucky Ynited I must say.

    Perfectly acceptable red card, it's good to see a refferee stand up to the big clubs.  Lunging takles, or those that are two footed, or show the studs  are red card offences, Kompany's takle was all three.

    I watched the game and thought that Kompany's sending off was totally over the top. It should have been a yellow card at the most. What annoyed me most of all was that about 15 minutes later there was a similar tackle by a United player on a city player and nothing was done.(Think it was Evra, but not sure).  In my opinion the ref got it wrong with his red card. City played really well to pull back two goals. It's the same in the SPL. I think in cup games, there should be some sort of camera technology to replay the action before the referees make rash decisions that affect a teams chance of a shot at the cup.
