The red mist descended on the Barclays Premier League this weekend, with Saturday's tally of eight sendings-off setting a new record.
With Barry Ferguson also given his marching orders in Birmingham's draw with Manchester City yesterday, the two-day total of nine was the highest for a decade.
Liverpool were the worst offenders, with Philipp Degen and Jamie Carragher both seeing red in their defeat at Fulham, while two other games also featured a pair of dismissals.
Everton's Diniyar Bilyaletdinov and Carlos Cuellar of Aston Villa received their marching orders within minutes of each other at the end of their 1-1 draw, with Sunderland's Kenwyne Jones and West Ham's Radoslav Kovac following suit at the Stadium of Light.
Geovanni's red card added to Hull's woes in their defeat at Burnley but Jlloyd Samuel can have no complaints about his dismissal for tripping Chelsea's Didier Drogba.Reuse content
