And come on it’s incredibly harsh to send him off.

It was the follow through when he took the man - apparently. He clearly gets the ball first.

Football is a joke nowadays. 

Headers will be banned next.

Wasn't even a foul. He won the ball, all the ball 

 

From "thefa.com";

 

SERIOUS FOUL PLAY

A tackle or challenge that endangers the safety of an opponent or uses excessive force or brutality must be sanctioned as serious foul play.

Any player who lunges at an opponent in challenging for the ball from the front, from the side or from behind using one or both legs, with excessive force or endangers the safety of an opponent is guilty of serious foul play.

Perhaps Brum will feel that they have to attack now up against 10 men, giving us a chance to hit them on the counter assuming we can get anybody in the area.

Of course, if they score that's probably goodnight Vienna.

Shaw wins the ball

But I’m guessing he took him down with his left leg? (I’ve not seen it btw)

 

bit of a daft challenge to say he’s on a yellow already...

Can't do that in modern day football. In fact why is his making that sort of challenge deep in there half.

A few years ago it would have been the perfect tackle. Tackling like that is a true skill which has been killed off.

Second one wasn't harsh, going in like that with studs up what did he expect when already on a yellow.

Pretty sure your studs have to be up to slide. They get stuck in the ground otherwise.
