What use is video evidence after the game? A red card in this game could be a major turning point. Sounds like Toure is pushing his luck big time

Does he, or does he not, get regular cautions, sendings off and some suspensions? Does he get the type of media coverage I described when he does? Of course, so don't patronise me Ros.

And what's him getting away with anything in the past-as you say, not that much I'd say- got to do with whether Toure is in the wrong for kicking a player on the floor, then later "swinging a punch" of sorts (more a well aimed clip) at another player?

And I'm having another good old rant at how Milner escapes a yellow for a clearly deliberate handball AND then kicking the ball away!

Exactly! And if we (well, Reds) want them down to 10 men in any game it is in one where the opposition might be good enough to beat them.

He gets them because he deserves them Jim.

He also regularly gets away with throwing his elbows about. Remember the incident with Wigan's James McCarthy?

To be honest Jim, as a neutral, I cant see anyone in England beating them this season. They look a bit special

"Regularly"? He is physical in much the same way as many other strikers, past and present. I do remember that incident and he should have been sent off. It was also all over the media for days. He gets them because he deserves them - when he goes off the rails. Toure deserved a red card twice.


City maybe should have had a penalty but I didn't think so in real time.

Okay, 'regularly is exaggerating a point. He's all over the papers because he sells them. Toure doesn't.

I'm no United expert but I know I'd rather watch Citeh than United this season.

Re: Toure, IMO the little kick was nowt nor summat but he should have been sent off for the slap.

I couldn't blame you. We look ordinary at best and they look good.

And Toure should have had another theoretical yellow for the rake down Ramres' (I think, or was it Sturridge's) calf. He's had more lives than a cat in this game. Then you get Rumeo or however they spell it booked for a nothing jump, yet Silva, Milner and Barry have all made very cynical looking and blatantly obvious body checks but got nowt more than a free kick given.

Bloody Citeh!!!

+4 minutes.

We'll have to rechristen it "Mancini Minutes" now!

Good old Chelsea!

I remember some lowly team from E.Lancs being unbeaten in the PL era at Stamford Bridge until Abramovich took control

Oh so it comes alive when my team loses does it? I see exactly what's going on here.

As for last night's game, I don't really know what was going on with YaYa, he seemed to have lost the plot a bit but got away with murder. It does seem that referees treat you differently at times when you are in the top four. I don't think the ref had the best game but these things (hopefully) even themselves out.

As for the result, Chelsea are now clearly the best team in the country and are going to win everything. Just like last season then really.
