I thought that Elliott Charles had a raw deal yesterday. Sometimes big strikers with exceptional aerial/jumping skills and with the ability to hang in the air seem to me to be picked out unfairly for fouls, often for making the slightest of contact with opponents. After four such innocuous incidents, none of them remotely serious, the yellow card comes out and Elliott dare not make any challenge for the ball thereafter, thereby reducing his effectiveness. The yellow card hardly compared with Vilcu's yellow for denying Elliott what would almost certainly have been a goalscoring opportunity - red in my opinion.

Surely, officials cannot make a mental note of every infringement by any player and keep a count. Easily identifiable players are it seems more at risk.
