Premiership red cards deserved

We saw a spate of reds this weekend which sees the standard of discipline set early. Good work: the Premiership referees did well this weekend by giving red cards that were well deserved.

Paul Dickov got his marching orders minutes after coming on for Blackburn Rovers against West Ham in their loss for a wild tackle on full back Paul Konchesky; so much for his defensive help. Blackburn lost 3-1.

Middlesbrough defender Ugo Ehiogu was clearly the last player taking on Steven Gerrard, who was thru. Appropriately given, a few times last season the referee’s hesitated and didn’t show the red when everyone knew it was. Good. I want to see the goals. Middlesbrough survived with a draw.

Darren Ambrose got a 55th minute red card on his debut for Charlton. It was a horrible tackle on Sunderland’s Stephen Wright. Charlton won anyway 3-1 in large part to impressive Darren Bent’s double.

Newcastle's Jermaine Jenas was sent off with a straight red card in the 32nd minute against Arsenal. Isn’t that the club he’s being linked with? Not good for your chances to join, that’s for sure. That tackle from behind on Gilberto was a potential career ender. Newcastle lost 2-0.

I thought the Ambrose tackle was the worst of them all.

Although Abrose and dikov Deserved to be sent off refs are making the sport a lot like basketball where its a lot less physcial. this is a very bad thing! i also think that refs are just being stupid when they book people for "overcelebrating" their excited let them be i say!
