Noble's red card overturned
Good to see that sense has prevailed and the FA has overturned Mark Noble's red card at Liverpool. Nobes had been fouled in the build-up, and he played the ball with his subsequent sliding tackle. The FA has though charged West Ham with failing to control their players, which seems harsh too. There was some understandable reaction to a ridiculous dismissal but couldn't see anything outrageous going on. I've seen worse reactions when my fellow season-ticket holder Nigel has missed the District Line train to Kew Gardens.
