Gary Medel: Escapes FA action

Gary Medel: Escapes FA action

The incident was not seen by the match officials and was reviewed by the FA's panel of former referees who decided that the incident was not worthy of a red card so no action would be taken.

United manager David Moyes said after the game that he was frustrated to see Medel escape punishment for appearing to strike Fellaini in the face.

The incident occurred in the build-up to Cardiff's stoppage-time equaliser when Peter Whittingham's free-kick was headed past David de Gea by Kim Bo-kyung.

Moyes said: "If he slaps someone in the face, then you'd expect some action to be taken.

"We actually lost our concentration because we were set up for the free-kick, the referee then spends a minute or so talking to everyone and then sets it back up."

City manager Malky Mackay also admitted that the Cardiff midfielder could have been dismissed for his actions.

When asked about Medel, Mackay told Sky Sports: "He could (have been sent off) but then I also look at Fellaini and doing what he does normally and putting his head on someone else's face, and that's for me a sending off.

"But overall I'm happy that both teams deserved to have 11 men on the pitch. They didn't deserve to have any men off and neither did we."

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.
