    The article about Arshavin describes Mata as floating around the pitch like a ‘lovable cartoon seahorse’.

    Now THAT’S journalism. (Seriously though I loved that).

  4. San Franciscan says:

    Just watched the video, in no way both offences deserved a yellow.

  5. charlestace says:

    Interesting headline: “England’s play-off hopes suffer setback after Ukraine beat Montenegro.” It is true in this sense: England has become more likely to WIN THE GROUP than was the case before Montenegro’s loss.

  6. Evan says:

    To be fair, that second yellow was a complete joke.

    Refs are eager to give Balotelli cards because of his reputation. It’s part of what drove him out of England.
