You wanted to know people’s opinions? More like you want to start a slag of Hendo fest...It’s why I asked about you plus sing the whole forum who let rip at the red card..
Granted we were all frustrated with the red but thankfully we were 2 up & saw out the game..Enjoy the result & leave the slagging off for tomorrow..
Sorry to just pick out one bit Shabs.
I watched and recorded the match using acestream, and have gone back to look at a few incidents.
Watford players committed the same kind of fouls as Henderson all match long, and yet didn't even get a talking to.
The only time the ref had a word, was when one of their players (for the 4th or 5th time) ran off with the ball again to stop us taking a quick free kick.
They used some pretty shithouse tactics to try and contain us (several fouls when we were breaking, around the halfway line) and running off with the ball so they could get organised.
So with that in mind, I don't blame Henderson too much, because I don't think any of his fouls were worth a yellow, in the context of the fouls Watford continually got away with, added together with a couple of really ugly dives which should have seen bookings for Watford players.
It looked to me like the ref targeted Henderson, and was dead set on sending him off.
The other side of that, is that Henderson has enough experience to know better than to get involved, and to keep a cool head.
In that regard, he let himself down, as well as his teammates.
I understand his frustration, but he's been around long enough to know better.
