Pieters came under fire after going down in an off-the-ball incident with Kasami during Stoke's 1-0 defeat at Craven Cottage last weekend.

Dutch international Pieters has defended his actions and is adamant that Kasami should have been dismissed for the incident.

"It was a red card, because he hit me in the face," Pieters told the Stoke Sentinel.

"There was contact, no question for me, and I am not going down on the ground for nothing."

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.
