Manchester United huffed and puffed to a 2-0 victory over Sunderland this afternoon, though their task was made all the easier when Wes Brown got himself sent off in the 64th minute.
With Radamel Falcao shaping to shoot in the penalty area, Brown was shown a straight red for assuming telepathic control of John O’Shea’s mind and using the Irishman as a vessel to haul the Colombian striker back by his shoulder…
As we all know, unsolicited mind control is a red-card offence these days.
To be fair to O’Shea, he repeatedly admitted to Roger East that it was him who tugged Falcao back – but alas, the referee just wasn’t for turning.
We think Brown’s face pretty much sums it up…
