Watching Rafa Benitez solemnly trudge across the Craven Cottage pitch last night, you cannot help but feel for the man.

His empire is crumbling around him and any hopes of winning an elusive first Premier League title are evaporating in a sea of early defeats.

Knowing Rafa though, I ‘m pretty certain he`ll weather the storm and yesterday circumstances certainly contrived to deprive him of two valuable players late on.

Whilst I`ll admit I was baying with the rest of them when those red cards were held aloft, red cards that saw Degen and then Carragher, take a long walk, watching re-runs of the incidents on Match of the Day last night, I have to admit they were a little harsh.

In fact if the shoe had been on the other foot I`d have been as equally livid as Rafa was.

Following the game Rafa has announced that Liverpool will be appealing against the red cards, with Rafa remarking,

“We will try to appeal against both red cards because for me it`s very clear that Carragher was kicking the ball and the other one Degen was not kicking the player.”

A little part of me hopes that they succeed because no matter what happens now they`ll never be able to take away those three points will they – magic!

  • The first one was a bit harsh, but I think the second one was spot on as Carragher took away a goal scoring opportunity.

  • how can you feel sorry for rafa the money he earns and how much he has to spend on players how would he cope if he had roys budget and as for the red cards would he say the same if the boot was on the other foot excuse the pun like I said he should have gone to spec savers well done that ref……………………….

  • agreed. degen’s was a yellow at best, carragher’s was spot on. plus it was carragher’s third questionable tackle of the game… your luck can only run for so long… bobby was a MENACE all game.

  • all these so called top mangers should stop moaning and take a leaf out of roys book you lose give the other team some credit stop the excueses
