Some Hope For Fletcher!

Following the disgraceful decision to send Darren Fletcher off for winning the ball against Cesc Fabregas, we were told the only way Fletcher could get off with it was if there had been a case of mistaken identity, which there clearly hadn’t.

VIDEO: Fletcher’s Red

Darren Fletcher shows 100% commitment. Knowing that United were certain for the final, he could have let Cesc Fabregas run through and score.
