Wrong Man, Wrong Time: Wes Brown Sent Off Against Man Utd For John O’Shea’s Foul On Radamel Falcao

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…

    Basically Falcao has had to recover the ball, figure out poor passes and make chances from weak and unclear plays from his team. In which way does Di Maria help Falcao? None! No wing man in that team provides a good pass, that team is ridiculous it’s just a bunch of selfish show offs. I wrongly thought Falcao had lowered his level, but he has not been the problem you are so blind if you think he is! And come on! Falcao cannot make it up for a whole team. If he leaves MU is because this is the worst and most uncooperative team on earth. He is been wasting his career and dignity trying to help a lost cause.

      Whilst there is substance in what you say, there’s no denying that Falcao absolutely stank Upton Park out a few weeks back.

    By haul do you mean put his hand on his shoulder?
