Get In.

seems some confusion whether Dunk had 2 yellows or Straight Red.
Losing Dunk for Chelsea/ Brentford/Burnley is not ideal
He'll be available for Burnley. If it was two yellows he'll miss Chelsea, if it was a straight red then he'll miss Brentford as well (assuming he was sent off for insulting, offensive or abusive language towards the ref). No chance he misses 3 games (3 game bans are for reds shown for serious foul play or violent conduct neither cover anything Dunk did).

There was no need for any of that - should have been an easy win.

Ref absolutely ballsed up calming the situation. In fact he just added fuel to the fire.

Yes Dunk was stupid doing what he did - but a better ref would have told him "get away from me NOW or you're off".

I just think English refs are attention seeking narcissists and like to make the game all about them - which he did - and that he would have loved the drama of Forest going on to win.

Yeah this could be the game JPVH proves beyond any doubt he is out next Dunk (hopefully without the dissent). Towering performance.
If anyone doubts this, then bare in mind that at the same age, Dunk was having his breakthrough season in The Championship, at the end of which lots of fans (me included) thought we should be biting Fulham’s hands off for the 6m they offered.

I think after the yellow he used offensive wording so a straight red. Meaning thats also a yellow card added on to yellow tally for the season

Exactly what I thought unless he told ref he's an ffing C.
He should really know better though. Poor from Lewis.
However their no. 40 should have a 2nd yellow for pushing, standing on the back of Pedro then kicking him in the stomach. Weak ref but very quick with yellows against us.

If he got a yellow and then a straight red, both for dissent, surely there's a chance he's hauled up in front of the FA? It's clearly not the same as getting either two yellows or simply a straight red....

How we managed to win that game I do not know? But somehow it's what we do.

RDZ going mental on the pitch after getting off the schneid, but reality will kick him in his big balls when he has to throw up a half-decent line-up after today's additional injuries and Dunk's red card. Maybe cut down on the training the next few weeks to avoid more unnecessary knocks, eh?
