Is there any reason why Fernandinho never gets carded Ed001? He makes foul after foul and nothing happens, Jorginho made one and got a yellow straight away, it's infuriating. He makes a foul, gets 500 warnings, followed by a yellow and after that he's free to do what he wants without a second yellow, it such BS.

{Ed001's Note - this has been a subject that comes up time and time again and no one has ever figured out how Fernandinho gets away with so many fouls. Personally I think it is down to Pep putting pressure on officials. But he could literally decapitate an opponent and still only get a ticking off! It is unreal. I read somewhere they are top of the 'fair play' league this season and I immediately thought if Fernandinho and Kompany had got even half of the cards they deserved they would be at the bottom.}

He's the master of the sly tactical foul. I think personally it is because he always backs off after the foul rather than confront the refereee- another player does that. I remember when Bayern used to do it with Martinez and Muller would always be deployed to scream at the referee.
Have to say, Eric Dier is as bad an offender.

Refereeing has literally never been so bad in the last 20 odd years, needs to be put to a stop.

Since I didn't see the game so focused last night, as my friends and I were getting pretty drunk at that moment, I saw it again this morning, and you're absolutely right, saying that he backs off, after committing fouls. I can remember one specific foul yesterday, where I at first thought it was Delph who'd committed it, since Fernandinho was already far away right after.

I like pep he’s a very amiable guy and a great managger but I don’t like the fact his teams get favourable treatment, himself perhaps too. If the whole Catalonian symbol thing was somebody else like Mourinho I can’t help but think the media and FA would have crucified him. It takes a smart player to take a booking form time to time, Lucas did it for us, but that seems to be all fernandinho's game is and he escapes punishment.

Re Fernandinho, he has taken the yaya you’re mantle, foul on foul never gets booked.
