Is There A Pattern Here?


Backbiter

Recommended Posts

Four games, 4 refs, 4 decisions:

1. Vidic hacks down Keane when through on goal. Obvious red, only yellow given.

2. Riley awards foul against Ferdinand with 20 secs left of minimum 3 mins. Ferdinand goes mental in extreme show of dissent warranting second yellow. Great opportunity on edge of box for us to score winner. Riley bottles it and blows up early to avoid giving red card and to prevent any chance of us scoring a late winner.

3. Jlloyd Samuel executes perfect tackle in box on Ronaldo. Bizarre pen awarded.

4. Vidic takes out Blackburn keeper with accidental elbow to jaw, preventing him claiming a cros. Bal hits Brown and goes in. No free kick awarded.

These incidents were in successive games. This stinks to high heaven.

Nothing that hasn't been going on for the last 10 years with Man U and refereeing decisions :angry:

Make that at least 40 years, though I must admit the situation has got worse since the start of the Premiership - or is it since Red Nose took over?

I still get really angry about some of the decisions made by David Elleray in the 1994 Cup Final, totally biased refereeing bordering on out and out cheating in favour of the red scum.

But believe me, that kind of thing had been going on for years - the Manure & England captain Bryan Robson used to kick, elbow and punch opponents off the park for years and got away with it. Ditto Roy Keane, and many many more.

I was thinking the same thing yesterday backbiter although I had forgotten about the Vidic on Keane incident so I had it as three very poor decisions. Yesterday's was ridiculous - I didn't actually believe the goal had been given I was so sure the foul would be blown for.

Even more so, when you think of the furore there would have been if similar situations had resulted in decisions being given against the red trash. If any ref had dared blow up early when they could/should have had a free kick on the edge of the box if the twat in black hadn't decided to blow up early, it would have been all over the papers and filling the airwaves, and the main topic of discussion on MOTD. But because it was against them that it should have been given, f**kall gets said.

They are given more penalties than anyother team, and have fewer awarded against them - despite having some of the dirtiest players in the Premier. Scholes for instance: how many times have you heard some f**kwit commentator chuckling indulgently about his "inability to tackle"? When the reality is that he's a dirty bar steward who habitually ignores the ball and takes out the man.

If you add in the last game of last season at Wigan when Scholes should have gone in the 1st half with the score 0-0, that's 5 major reffing errors in their favour in 8 games. I won't even mention the CL final.

OK, I will, when the ref ignored this grotesque challenge (and the linesman flagged then put it down):

Make that 5 in 7. They've only played 6 Prem games this season.

Where's the Edit button gone?

Edit: It's back now - but I can't edit the above post.

You can only edit posts for a limited period of time. Allows you to edit mistakes you make but prevents people coming back ages later and changing a post. We had to put that function on as we had a few incidents where people behaved like total tits then came back later edited the post and denied it had happened after things kicked off.

Ok - seems sensible.

Didn't Elleray recently admit that the amount of injury time he gave depended on whether United were winning or losing? Sums it all up.

yes he did. he admitted changing how long how he played depending on the score at old trafford. strangely it hardly got a mention in the papers...

Scholes gets away with murder, he could have been sent off for perssistant fouling in the first 20mins against us.

It annoys me too how commentaters just laugh when he hacks someone down at waste height. He's been doing it for years now.

Someplayers have got away with miss-timed tackles being called a forwards challange and rightly so. Then you hear Fergie slaughter Kevin Davies saying he's the dirtiest player in the league for making 'forwards' tackles. Davies does put it about and nows what he's doing, you cant make that many bad tackles in a season to write them all of as miss-timed. Scholes though is the exact same and nobody says a word.

It looks ridiculous, but it would be great to have a neutral view on this. First we'd have to find a person who is neutral when it comes to referee decisions in football :rolleyes: .

I'm sure ManU fans would find 4 decisions going our way that we don't even recall happening...

That rediculous red card was taken away from Terry although it could have been 3 match ban just as easy.

I don't want to jinx this now but have you seen how cleanly Mikel has played? His tackles are like silk now and his timing has been spot on. He looks like the new Vieira in my eyes. A non-c*nt-Vieira to be more accurate.
