As long as you take their stuff with a huge grain of salt, they're decent at reporting sport news.

Looking at the relative fortunes of City and Chelsea since becoming rich, it's not as easy as spending money.

I can see giving it on a pragmatic level because of the lack of a clear view, but it's 100% not a red card offence, according to the Laws.

No, unless the referee thinks it's close enough to be a possible sending-off offence, as Steve said below.

Nope. Only if it denies a goal-scoring opportunity, which this wasn't, since it was going wide.
