Whilst I was 100% certain that Clatts made the right decision - and it was excellent, that he 'took his time' - I thought it was a little odd that he went to one pocket, opened it, closed it (presumably because it had a Yellow Card in it) and then went to the other pocket and produced the Red. Did he not know which pocket it was in?

I'm not sure about what take someones time makes better than going straight for the offender and producing the right card. Anyway - from the replays I've seen it is the right call and it should be given down the intercoms instantly. The fact that he goes for the wrong card first shows that the call is not unanimous and that Clatts didn't make the call on his own.

Old school Graeme Souness said it was harsh (under the old rules) and was shot down by Jamie Carragher who seems to be one of the most sensible pundits out there!!! http://refereeforum.net/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif
