His sending off has sparked a fiery outburst from Big Sam and several members of the media including a certain member of the Talk Sort team.
West Ham had an argument for an earlier appeal for a penalty turned down which at the time looked cast iron. The one that they got from a supposed Sharp foul was different.
Contact if any was minimal with Noble and it did look extremely harsh. Sharp appealed against the decision and appeared to be running towards the linesman when he came into contact with Taylor.
Words were obviously exchanged before Taylor clearly grabbed Sharp by the throat before shoving him violently away causing Sharp to fall to the ground.
West Ham fans and some of the media have claimed that Sharp rolled around in mock agony but if you check the BBC video you plainly see that this was not true.
After the incident Sharp missed a couple of fairly straight forward opportunities to score and it is possible that after the sending off incident he was trying too hard.
While we won’t be expecting an apology from Big Sam it would be nice if he admitted that he was wrong for once in his life.
After all he is nicknamed Big Sam and it does take a big man to admit he made a mistake.
