That was the week that was...

Liverpool vs Chelsea

A new rule book was launched by the F.A. and Mike Riley over the weekend, heres a quick guide by FMU on when to award a red card Lampard tackle

 Lampard goes in for a tackle and wins the ball, this is now considered violent conduct and warrants a straight red card by the referee.

 Gerrard dives into a tackle, similar style to Lampard without winning the ball. (5 mins on the video) This is now to be considered worthy only of a ticking off and any dissent to be passed off as just a bit of passion.

While Bosingwa decides that the best way to win the ball is to launch a kick into the middle of the Liverpool players back. As he explains after the match "it was never my intention to hurt him" if a player expresses this kind of sympathy then no card should be awarded.

The rules have also been changed so that Gerrard can now be booked for diving, although incidents such as these are still not allowed to be publicised in the national press.

What we missed last week...

 A parrot has been banished from a football ground because it kept imitating the referee's whistle during an crunch match. Read more.

A few from around the grounds:

Robinho are you listening.
What the f*ck were you thinking.
All those empty seats
And home defeats
Walking in a City wonderland.

 --

Kaka , wherever you may be
Have you heard of Man City?
Don't go there ,it'll end in tears
They've won f*ck all for 33 years!
