Is Brown any worse than the rest?

Is Brown any worse than the rest?

Brown's 'tackle on Ashley Cole in the final minutes of Saturday's London derby between Fulham and Chelsea did not warrant a yellow card according to referee Mark Halsey, yet Halsey was quick to jump all over Fulham players for everything else and dismiss penalty claims willy nilly!!

The television replays showed Brown had been lucky to avoid a yellow for the challenge which left Cole theatrically rolling about the grass.

But Brown considers the hard approach is helping Fulham to overcome the loss of midfielder Jimmy Bullard and captain Luis Boa Morte among others through injury.

'Up until the hour mark I thought we were really solid, Chelsea were not really bothering us until they changed it round a bit, but they are the Champions and they were going to have little spells in the game,' said Brown.

'We are not playing particularly pretty football or passing as much as we would like but we've had a couple of injuries of late and we have just decided to make ourselves a lot more solid and harder to beat.'

Is it fair for the media to be so harsh on a hard playing midfielder that without doubt gives his all for 90 minutes of every game?

Cashley Cole certainly seems to have a thespian spirit whilst playing on grass! and he is not the only one, a lot of players are happy to go over the top and writh about a bit when tackled by a 'controversial' midfielder.

Perhaps the match officials should look closer at the ones being tackled rather than the ones doing the tackling or does this just add to the arguement of touchline video replays for referees?

Good article and a lot of truth in it, when you tink of Ben Thatcher, Roy keane, Robbie Savage, Ashley Cole and the list goes on, it really does make Brown look like a saint!

Its a problem and I think that touchline video replays/technology is the way forward. With perhaps a showing of the same relay being showed on the large screens as well for the fans etc.

Why is the internet spawning such a multitude of worthless football articles? You'd think that with so many lovers of the game, a few articles would be written by people with some intelligence. Instead, we just get gunk like "Is Brown Worse Than the Rest." It seems that any idiot is now free to waste our time with worthless, weakly-written, valueless rubbish.

Why is it that we keep getting this pathetic 'fan' on this site that can only spout useless and childish comments like this and yet never comments on his own teams site, its a good job that this lad is in the minority otherwise it would give good footballing sites a bad name.

His comments so far this month have earnt him 15 points on the Chelsea forum, it appears that it is more important to him to continue to annoy other sites than to support the Chelsea site.....lacking in I.Q. I suppose.....How sad!

Chances are he only uses 'sir cecil' as an alias and is probably not even a Chelsea supporter, there are some prats around, I am sure that he is a ***** supporter called **************.
