Right, it's normal to throw a kick while headingMikeyM;2761088 said:Evans was jumping for a ball, his foot collided with Drogba's chest, I'm sure it hurt but the way he sold it was ridiculous. It certainly didn't warrant a red card. That was the only thing the referee got right.

And you cant say its an over reaction, drogba does it that often, commentators and players were laughing at him. His own teams mate initially walked off before they realised he was actually "down". Made himself a victim of his own stupidity. The sad thing is... unlike others will he learn his lesson, I think not.
Don't be so mellow dramatic... your 'pulling a drogba'. The worst a kick to the solar plex would do is wind him. That poxy back flick would have done little more then scratch or bruise him. Hit him right on the pectoralis major too, That huge muscle in your pec. Very hard to cause damage there.
Not that I condone that. just pointing out the over reaction.
Zakov;2761199 said:In which post did I say I condone what Drogba does week in week out with his theatrics? That is something already well covered by most of the population on this planet that loves football. We all know how much "adulation" he's received for that. Nevertheless, he's still our player.
Its one thing constantly embarrassing yourself rolling on the floor but violent conduct is another. I remember how you lot reacted when Possebon got tackled hard by Pogatetz, and were outraged by it.
This is a similar situation if not even worse due to the way it was handled by the referee, add insult to injury Drogba was wrongfully booked, because I've seen countless of people aggravate the reaction to their injury with theatrics but if they deserve a yellow for the way they react to tackles made on them, then the person who commits the tackle must receive a punishment even worse.
As for Evans not intentionally leading with his foot, that's just rubbish, if he lead with his elbow thats another thing.
But jumping on the air to head the ball there's just no way you'd get up your foot as high as Evans did without making hard contact with the opposing player.
We see goalkeepers do it at times but even they don't get their boots to the level of the chest.

So we're not top of the table at the moment, but I have faith in the boys, and also that Sir Alex will make the right moves in January. I really hope we go for Krasic and Akinfeev.
Nani said that "for now I am not considering" leaving Old Trafford. He also spoke about Ferguson's relationship with the players and displays of anger. He said he had been on the receiving end of the manager's rage.
"Hell, yeah. He goes: 'Nani, how could you miss this or this?' No one is safe in the pitch. He treats all the players as equals. Even Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville get it but it takes longer with them because they are more experienced.
"And it is always with '**** this' and '**** that' back and forth. He is a very complicated guy, very complicated and he is tough. If things are OK, he will be OK. But if there is anything he believed to be wrong, you are screwed. He can go from complimenting you to just plain trashing you in a matter of minutes."
