    What's happened to SM?

    Sorry for taking such a long time in responding and sorry for disappearing. Stopped refereeing a little while ago. Became very disillusioned with it all and p*ssed off with the games I was doing. Getting good level games, but just not any fun. Must have done the same team 5 or 6 times in...

    Got to agree with the above here Craig, if I was that referee I may have done exactly the same. Job one for being a CAR - do not offer the information that you are a referee yourself. I don't know if you did tell him (if you mentioned that, I missed it...) it doesn't help. Job two - do...

    Seb Larsson

    Oooo lucky he didn't snap the guy's leg. Over the ball and momentum/followed through. Nailed on red for me. Hang on, it's against Utd, scrap the above, caution for Herrera for simulation. Penalty awarded to Sunderland at the next opportunity!!!

    Ross Barkley

    Stone cold definate caution he got away with early in the game. Not a great tackle on lovren later, which was orange for me, it again high on the ankle. Only reason I say orange rather than straight red is the speed they were both moving. Not clever though. The lad could have a great future...

    Ross Barkley

    He is riding his luck. He is not the best tackler in the world, but somehow keeps avoiding red cards (and more luckily injuring someone) despite some awful tackles. Such a talent. Needs to spend a bit of time leaning some control.

    Too much passion + very high speed + really unlucky player in the outcome. Clear red card. Agree with some of the above posters, thought bales was worse.
