    What has he got to do to appease you Willy-whiners? Two penalties won, two goals scored, overall opinion was a MOTM performance and still you bitch. I'm not sure you have any comprehension of what an "average performance" actually is, or you are blinded by some sort of bigotry or dislike of the player.
  2. Tell that to Moratta and Phil Jones against the Mancs
  3. I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but, for those of you in the UK, BT are showing the match for free on terrestrial telly, Freeview channel 115
  4. Too much at stake for a bit of old-fashioned controversy, these days though
  5. Sterling went over with a defender - penalty. Moratta man-handled over in about the same way against West Brom - nothing given. Some f**king consistency would be nice. The sooner we get video referees, the better as far as I'm concerned.

    Just out of curiosity, are there reliable links to prove that 90%?
  10. Most hated opposition

    Nothing like a bit of revisionist hyperbole to make a point on an internet forum. Finest-kind Marxist-Leninist dialectic. You people do make I laugh, sometimes. Oh, and all the other teams, really, but Spuds, Millwall and West Ham mainly, with a special dislike for Leicester, Bristol City and Cardiff.
  11. Luke Shaw

    I'd steer well clear. Injury-prone, struggles with his weight and reportedly has an attitude. Yet another young english player hyped to buggery who failed to reach his potential.

    You got a right bitch on today, haven't you? Is it the time of the month?

    If players are good enough to hit a players hand, then they are good enough to put it in the net instead and take away the small possibility that they will miss the penalty. Or, if it truly is accidental, then it's a free-kick rather than a penalty. That still gives the element of opinion, though. Gotta do something to get some consistent decisions though @Nibs Against the Mancs last week, two almost identical push-in-the-back situations went against us, Cahill and Luiz got red cards for tackles that were nowhere near as bad as some shown in other matches the same weeks, which got yellows or nothing. And this goes on every week in almost every match, and I'm not saying it;s just us, it's every team in every league. Refereeing standards are just not up to the state of a professional game. It's time to stop referees having discretion on applying the laws of the game, or introducing the level of video ref that international rugby has. AND, while we are at it, I want the football referees' microphones linked up to the stadium PA the same as rugby refs are, so there can't be any doubt about what is decided and why.
  14. I agree with most of what you say, Scotty, but, for me, the end of the league and particularly the FA Cup Final HAS to be in May. For me the international breaks are the cause of all of the mid-week league matches that we have to play, when all teams, not just us, could do with some time to train and recover.

    My issue is with referee consistency. According to the laws of the game it hit his arm, and he had his arm raised a bit, so I can understand it being given. On the other hand (no pun intended) it was obviously not a deliberate attempt to handle the ball. I think the laws need to remove the "intention" clause and anything that touches an arm in the box is ALWAYS a penalty. No dispute, and it doesn't matter if a player falls over on the ball, or it's kicked at a player from a very close distance. If it touches an arm, penalty. That will then remove the inconsistency where five out of ten referees would give that last night, and the other five wouldn't. Still a bit harsh on the micks, though.
