Gus Poyet: Remains calm over Ashley Barnes' red card

In the final seconds of injury-time Barnes appeared to make contact with referee Nigel Miller off the ball and was immediately shown a red card.

A frustrated Poyet said: "I'm desperate to jump on the bus to see the DVD and to talk to Ashley Barnes.

"My way of managing this is I prefer the player to calm down because if you go to the dressing room and you ask them straight away then they will put their excuse in there and blame somebody else.

"I'm going to say I suppose it was for talking (dissent). I don't know, I cannot confirm because I did not talk to him yet. I saw nothing, I was looking at the ball."

When asked if that there was a feeling Barnes may have made contact with the referee, Poyet said: "Punch? Push? I don't know, I'm asking.

"I would like to see it. Now it's easier - now before I talk to him I'm going to have a look because if he's done something to the referee...

"Let's wait and see. It is difficult to make an opinion when you don't know what happened."

Having been sent off earlier this season, Barnes is facing the prospect of a minimum four-match ban.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
