I'm still too bitter to write about the Liverpool match. Damn that game!

However, at least there's something positive to take away from it. Referee Mike Riley f**ked up. He said it himself. And the FA has agreed.

The Football Association today rescinded Frank Lampard's red card, handed out by Riley during the second half of Sunday's 2-0 loss at Anfield. Lampard swooped in with a sliding challenge to win the ball ahead of Xabi Alonso -- and was rewarded with a kick to the ankle by Alonso and a red card. Pure nonsense. You don't think so? Read James Lawton and get back to me.

Super Frank will now be available for the next three matches -- against Hull, Aston Villa and Watford.
