WATCH: 5 Shoulder Charges That Put Ashley Young To Shame

Debate raged in the Balls office as to whether Ashley Young deserved a second yellow card for what real Irishman would call a bump with Angel Di Maria during the first half of Manchester United's UEFA Champions League tie with Paris Saint Germain at Old Trafford tonight.

The hearts of all Red Devils fans were primed to explode from their rear ends as card-happy referee Daniele Orsato, approached the United full-back, but after a bit of a jiggery pokey involving half of the PSG eleven, the Italian decided that Young's penance would be satisfied by a simple apology to his ex-teammate.

Two men that thought the United captain should have walked were George Hamilton and Jim Beglin.

If Jim and George want to see a real 'shoulder barge', then they'd be best advised to take a look at some of these.

The sides were level at half-time but two goals after the break from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappé, both ironically assisted by di Maria, have put the FRench side in firm control of the tie.
