Paul Tierney having a shocker, so bad its actually for once been picked up by the media (more specifically the SKY UK commentators)

Agreed he hasnt been great. Laporte should have been booked early on which meant that cynical trip when Spurs were breaking would mean he would be off now.
Reguilon would have beaten laporte to being sent off if tierney had carded him earlier in the game for a pull
Back on foden. Whether right to caution both for earlier incidents or when he did, he has been consistent.
In both cases if the first offences had been dealt with by issuing yellow cards i don think the second challenges
Would have been made, if they had then they would have deserved to have an early bath.

This is why the correct term for a Yellow Card is a caution.  Its a warning that a repeat offence will result in being dismissed from the field of play.  I do realise that I am old (in refereeing terms) and long retired, but we were taught - in refereeing school - that when cautioning a player to actually say to him that committing another cautionable offence will result in dismissal. 

You would like to think that had both "stick on" cautions been correctly issued earlier in the game, the subsequent cautionable offences would not have taken place and the game would have been better for it.  Less stoppages = more football.  Sometimes a referee just needs to apply the Laws to make it a better game.
