Pot / kettle.
Indeed. Fer looks a shadow of the player we saw in the first couple of months of the season.
Obviously losing Howson has cost us big time in midfield but Fer could do with putting a bit more into games, he doesn''t really seem to be putting in a shift for the team at the moment.
Some of the comments on this thread are just desperate.
My take on it was that Remy and BJ got in a tussle with Remy trying to stop BJ getting past him to the ball, a classic 50/50 with both players probably committing fouls so hard for the ref to give either way. After the ball had gone out of play they carried on pushing each other, a yellow card offence on both sides, it happens, get real about it. Then they faced up to each other and Remy went to headbutt BJ, BJ ducked away but didn''t go down nor did he exaggerate what had happened. What should he have done, stayed there and maybe got a broken nose ?
Was the attempted head-butt enough for a red card ? Probably, although the hand to the throat by Chamakh was worse. A yellow card each way would have been sensible. Can''t see what BJ did that deserved a red card.
And I find it desperate that people who call themselves City fans can deliberately exaggerate what one of our players did - by saying he threw himself to the floor when very obviously he didn''t - to make what he did sound worse than it was. Football is still a physical game and sometimes you''re going to get players in tussles like the one last night, it''s ridiculous if even being involved is enough to get you a red card. If people want football so completely sanitised that even a bit of pushing gets people sent off, they''re entitled to their opinion although I disagree completely. But I hate it when people say things which are obviously false as a way of having a go at one of our players.
