Ryan Babel Tweets Photo Of Howard Webb Wearing Man United Shirt

Ryan Babel could face disciplinary action from The Football Association (FA) after the Liverpool striker posted a Photoshopped image on Twitter of referee Howard Webb wearing a Manchester United shirt.

The image was posted in jest after Webb awarded Manchester United a penalty versus Liverpool. The decision was a poor one by Webb after TV replays clearly showed United striker Dimitar Berbatov diving in the box.

Traditionalists may argue that Babel should not be using Twitter to criticize referees and that he should keep his opinions to himself. However, I believe Babel’s attempt to add some levity to the situation while also proving a point at the same time should be congratulated, not scorned.

Ryan Babel is now joking on Twitter that the Twitter police are after him.

UPDATE: The FA has charged Ryan Babel with improper conduct and have given him until Thursday to respond. Meanwhile, The FA hasn’t said a word about El Hadji Diouf’s alleged taunts against the QPR player who had his leg broken Saturday.
