Vincent Kompany has today had his red card, which he received against Arsenal at the weekend, rescinded. With many professionals of the game agreeing, it is quite easy to see that Kompany was harshly treated when handed the red card.
In a game that had more yellow and red cards than any other I've seen for a while, referee Mike Dean wasn't shy when dishing out red cards when he felt it was necessary.
The game itself was quite dull with Arsenal having to play 10 men with just 10 minutes played. Man City, to their credit, made the most of it and got the job done with goals from James Milner and Edin Dzeko enough to see off the Gunners.
I think its good to finally see the FA have some sense and show a bit of discretion when it comes to decisions like these. Although, by law, it was a legitimate red card and some would say he endangered the safety of Jack Wilshere, the right decision was made by the FA to have the red card rescinded.
What do you make of this issue? Do you think it was a red card?
