On wm tonight they read out a e-mail sent in by some bitter villa hating twat.

"Dean Smith is a hypocrite for slating the officials for allowing Sheffield uniteds second goal to stand. He's whinging because Sharpe allegedly kicked the ball out of the keepers hands. The keeper wasn't injured. Last week Mings stamped on a Reading players face injuring him badly. Smith didn't say a word about Mings assault. Hypocrite"

 To be fair the presenter put him straight pointing out that it has been judged as accidental. Honestly I'm staggered at how fucking clueless some people are and they decide to contact a radio show just to highlight the fact.

Cheltenham

You are of the view it was a complete accident.  Lots of people aren't so convinced - you only have to read the pages of this thread to realise that.  I personally think he could probably have avoided it if he really wanted to to - I know this is debatable but it's my opinion.  I don't want him to be banned and I'm glad he wasn't, but my own view is he's a bit lucky that the system doesn't allow a review. 

The fact that you see it differently doesn't make you a better fan or more loyal than those who aren't so convinced.

You post as if it's black and white and your opinion is the only one that is valid and he has been completely exonerated.  Just because it can't be reviewed doesn't mean the refs decision is correct.  Some people think it was wrong, in the same way we all think the Baggies hand ball goal was wrong and Sharps kick out the hands was wrong - the ref saw those once in real time too and clearly made the wrong call.

I agree with what you say about trial by media - the coverage has been OTT.  But it was a horrific injury and was always going to attract a lot of attention.  I think pundits are within their right to give their views, just as we are on this forum. 

It's not black and white.  He hasn't been proved innocent or guilty and never will be, it will always remain a matter of opinion.  I can see both sides but my overwhelming feeling is one of relief that there is no formal review.  I think it's time to accept that sometimes peoples opinions differ and move on.

Mings . Let's call him a tough competitor.

I think it was good to see what looked like an acknowledgement and hand shake /embrace with 'mopey' after match as he had a beef and battle with Brentford striker at times 

Shades of mellberg with his hoofs in the first half and particular at start I'm sure in part due to press of Brentford and lack of midfield option.

Was outclassed along with Elphick for the goal.
And sold himself twice including goal .

But he was a solid performer again .

Very decent for this level
