"I tired to push him away with my head."
Sounds like a headbutt to me Alan. Expect a decent ban.
I don't have much to cheer about at the moment being a United fan so I was right behind both Swansea and Spurs tonight in their Europa League ties. I enjoyed both the games with two tremendous displays of football. It's a shame that one of those games was marred by a rather disgusting outburst of rage. It doesn't paint a pretty picture for football but neither does over exaggerating injuries. Annnnyway..
Who exited the Europa League tonight?
Yes Garry it was Swansea but his side can take a lot of pride in their performance. Almost matched Napoli stride for stride but in the end it was the combination of both an experienced squad and incredibly experienced manager which completed the task and saw off the Welsh side.
It 'Sherwood' have been nice if Swansea had seen out their game. On that note we move on to the second game of the night which indeed saw Spurs engineer a magnificent comeback against against a fourth placed Ukrainian side with 10 men. OK, OK it was still pretty impressive. Less impressive though was the incident midway through the second half.
There's the incident. ^ Let's face it, Vertonghen made a meal of it but it was a head-butt nevertheless and not for the first time this week, a Ukrainian in Europe was sent packing.
What followed the red card was pure rage from the player.
Fortunately Captain Adebayor was on hand to restrain the player and prevent him from murdering Vertonghen.
All in all an enjoyable night of football after a rather topsy turvy day at work. Tomorrow could be quite interesting.
