Good news!

If the card hadn't been rescinded, it would clearly show corruption. The trouble is we can't go back for a re-match, the result would have been different if Frank had stayed the full 90, so rescinded or not, we still lost points because of a stupid decision by Riley the muppet!

Blues win Lampard appeal

The Football Association has rescinded the red card handed out to Frank Lampard in Chelsea's clash with Liverpool.

The Blues midfielder was adjudged to have fouled Xabi Alonso early in the second half at Anfield on Sunday and was given his marching orders by referee Mike Riley.

Chelsea went on to lose the match 2-0 and later confirmed they would be appealing against the decision.

The FA has reviewed the incident and agreed with Luiz Felipe Scolari that Lampard should not have been sent off.

Lampard had been facing a three-match ban but will not now have to serve a suspension.

The 30-year-old will be available for selection against Hull City on Saturday as Chelsea aim to get their title bid back on track.

The BBC report gives Lampards red card a few lines and the rest of the artical on Bosingwa. Doesn't even mention what a f**k up Riley made and the effect on our league position.

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has won his appeal against the red card he received in Sunday's 2-0 loss to Liverpool and will not serve any ban.

Lampard was dismissed in the second half after a challenge on Xabi Alonso.

Team-mate Jose Bosingwa will not face any action for stamping on the back of Yossi Benayoun in the same match.

The Portuguese was not punished at the time and because the assistant referee admitted seeing it, the Football Association cannot review the incident.

Late in the game Bosingwa appeared to lunge one-footed into Benayoun's back but the incident went unpunished by referee Mike Riley.

But because his post-match report revealed that assistant Mo Matadar did see the event, under Fifa law, the FA cannot now take disciplinary action.

"What Bosingwa did was not correct, he made a mistake," said Scolari.

Bosingwa was quick to apologise for the incident: "I apologise for what I did and it was never my intention to hurt him.

"I know it was wrong and I apologise. It's always frustrating to lose big games and especially in this way.

"It was important to get points and not let Manchester United go. That didn't happen, so we are upset, but now we have to think about the next game."

The result leaves Chelsea five points behind leaders Manchester United having also played a game more.

I dont buy that I'm afraid. I still think we were being

dominated and wouldve gone on to lose. The red card is just an excuse for some.

The right team won.

Still , I'm just glad justice has prevailed and there is no ban. Sadly it seems Riley (the new Elleray) has got off scott free and not for the first time.

One of those one that we'll never know.

Up to an hour played I'd agree only one tean looked like and deserved to win it but how many games in the past have you seen that the team who deserves to win get beaten. Has happened to us before now.

PS Riley is a c**t.

Scenario:

Chelsea Vs Liverpool @ SBridge.

Gerrard is sent off after 60 mins (for exact same NON tackle as Lampards) and gets red card, Lampard trys cheating for a free kick on the edge of the dippers penalty area by diving and getting booked for it. We go on to pinch a 2-0 win and shatter the dippers title hopes.

Less than 48 hours later the FA squash Gerrards red card.

This scenario would see Chelsea and Lampard slaughtered throughout the media as "CHEATS".

e2a: And the Liverpool fans would say "Well the best team did win"....yeah right !

The Red card ruined the option Scolari had of taking off Malouda and bringing Drogba on up front with Anelka, who knows what would have happened if Drogs attitude had carried on improving as in the last two games when he came on in the second half,

It certainly would have given Pool something to think about other than a lone striker with 9 other players who never got a pass to him..

games have turned around on less..

I expected the card to be rescinded, but knowing the way FA works one couldn't be too sure what would happen. So I'm really happy about the outcome.

The thing that annoys me the most is the fact that Riley and his linesmen escapes criticism. Not only was Riley a disgrace to football during the entire game. The only good thing he did was to give Gerrard a card for diving, but I expect he only did that because he felt a bit guilty about the red card to Lamps (after all, he probably knew that he had just let Gerrard off completely after a similar challenge).

And the guy on the sideline who saw Bosingwas challenge on Benayoun should be punished too because he actually turned a blind eye to that one.

How many times have cards been rescinded this season? Feels like that happens every other day or so.

Shouldn't the FA soon realize that their referees screw up quite alot? Maybe it's time to gather all the refs in one room and slap them silly?

Seems to me that refs all over the world have gone from bad to worse these past few years. They suck in Spain, in Italy, in Sweden, in England etc.

Might as well stop having refs at all. Introduce a new no-rule kind of football. :rolleyes:

Ok, so we now know that Lamp's red card as now been rescinded, and "Old Mother" Riley has'nt been given a game to officiate this weekend (how my heart bleeds!!!) an interesting fact comes to mind.... :rolleyes:

Q:Super Frank, along with Vidic, Cahill, Zabaleta and Valencia all have a common bond, What is it??... :D

A: All of them have been sent off this season after a tangle of some sort with Xabi Alonso...

So, in my way of thinking, all the evidence we have hear points out that the "Dago Dipper" is a consummate wind-up merchant!!!!

What do you think????

I think no, poor point. Cahill wasn't an agreesive challenge aimed at hurting Xabi in my view (and probably wasn't a red card altogether). Vidic wasn't a foul aimed at someone, it was just a stupid dangerous attempt at getting the ball. Lamps' tackle wasn't aimed at Xabi, wasn't a red etc etc.

Haven't seen the Zabaleta and Valencia ones, so won't comment.

Of course the card has been rescinded. But has there really been justice? Not in respect of Lamps, or the result, but of Riley himself?

No game for him this weekend! Is that meant to be a suitable punishment?

Five things should be borne in mind here:

1. Gerrard had committed a similar challenge on the edge of our box not 6 minutes before. Difference was, Lamps took the ball cleanly and clearly. Gerrard was nowhere near the ball.

2. Gerrard, after his challenge, reacted to Riley ala' R-Wayne. In his face, veins a popping, gesticulating wildly. Riley chose to ignore the whole episode. Not even a booking or a stern lecture.

3. Gerrard kicking the ball into Bosingwa, when he was on the ground and play was dead, in the first few minutes. Ungentlemanly conduct? I would have thought so. Warrant a booking in Mr. Riley's eyes? Not for Gerrard. But If JT or any other of our players had done it. I'd bet, yes.

4. He couldn't have been any closer to the Lampard incident. I could tell, first time, without the need for a video replay, Frank had got the ball. Yet Mr Riley couldn't? Well, he hasn't been to Specsavers has he.

5. Bosingwa's boot in the back at the end. Yep, can understand the frustration, but should have been punished for it.

I really missed Jose on Sunday. Not for how much more I know he would get out of the same players, but for how he would have reacted about Riley and his ludicrous decision. He would have murdered him for it. He'd still be on about in the papers today. And rightly so. These people have to be held accountable for such dire decision making. It makes a mockery of the game. A rest this weekend? Laughable. Riley should be made to officiate Conference games for a month and be hit in the pocket accordingly.

I am trying extremely hard to find a conspiracy in what happened on Sunday, but all I can really come up with is that Mike Riley is a scared, lilly livered piece of chicken sh*t who simply is not fit to ref another game.

He obviously let Gerrard get away with alot more, a fact that was lost on no neutrals around the web, many of whom took delight in the fact that he was outed as a cheat for his dive.

Regarding the Lampard incident, I have to say my blood was boiling at the time, but in all rationality I really believe Riley pulled the red card for Alonso and changed his mind at the last second. As Just says, he was in perfect position to see the challenge, and Alonso whack Lampard's leg hard enough to break the f**king bone, and yet still sent off the wrong player. That alone was enough for me to think there was something seriously fishy afoot. Because no ref playing on the level could have applied such a riddiculous double standard within the same 5 minute span.

Then the Bosingwa incident. Obviously shouldve been a card and a FK to them. It went on right in front of the linesman. Riley said he saw it. But Becuase it went on in the dying seconds, did he feel he was doing us a favor by calling it bizarrely in our favor? I think he realized how much he f**ked that game up and was trying to make ammends the stupid bar steward. Then he goes to the FA and says he saw it and still did nothing.

if I was sitting on the review panel hearing this explanation, in view of what happened in the rest of the match, I dont see how he could be allowed to officiate again. Unless there were some kind of ulterior motives afoot, or he had been given instuctions to call the game in a certain fashion. But I just cant see it. I think Mike Riley is just an incompotent, bean-headed f**k.

That was his Graham Poll/Anders Frisk moment. I hope the press savage him into retirement, because he may have just altered the title race with a moment of pure idiocy, and doesnt deserve a second chance.

Oh, and to add to that, Liverpool needed 88 minutes to break down a hapless, 10 man team who was defending the whole match. Nothing can convince me that, had we had 11, we would not have walked away with a share of the spoils

If we had 11 players on the pitch, including the man who is hands down our most lethal threat on goal, as well as our other team leader, then I have no doubt that the we wouldve had a share of the spoils. Liverpool wouldve had to be more cautious, and Lampard wouldve been back to defend. I cant say what would have happened either, but our chances wouldve been much better, imo.
