bad losers, they are in a real league of their own when it comes to that! applauding the ref? joke! Chelsea last year i think won with ten men, the ref doesn't lose the match the players lose it, end of. Sour grapes city just outside Manchester.
I didnt think carlsberg did football matches. What a classless football club.
Have to say that 927 has hit the nail on the head. My immediate reaction to the sending off (and I'm absolutely not a Man U fan) was what has this ref been paid to send a Man U player off?!
I am not sure why a team has to speak to the press or the coach has to speak to the press. Also, why is a coach or players not allowed to criticize the ref at the end of the game. Where I come from it is called freedom of speech and would not stand in a court of law. So this whole silly episode whether Man U or players get punished defy imagination. Victims have become criminals
an earlier assault on Evra who seemed to have been kicked in the genitals,was rated as a yellow card offence.an "accidental" punch to the head of Vidic by reals goalkeeper was not deemed worthy of a comment.Has anyone checked the gambling patterns in the far east(Macau etc.) .peculiar football events sometimes have their origins there
Regardless of the decision, I don't think the people mentioning the studs actually can play football. To control that type of high ball your studs must be up and you catch the ball on the laces. It's a natural movement and the only way to control a ball of that nature. It's just another example of referee's understanding the rules but not the game.
The referee did an excellent job - when a player's studs go into an opponent's upper body while he is standing, there is very likely a case to answer - the referee consulted over it, and meantime we had Nani's idiotic antics, rolling around on the ground feigning injury - what was that all about, if he didn't feel he had done anything wrong? He knew fine he had committed a sending-off offence!
The reality of the situation is Utd are a top sixteen European side but not a top eight, being knocked out at this stage was predictable, especially after they were drawn against a far superior team. Most unbiased people think Utd were outclassed and well beaten.
When Rooney comes on they should hang a few pies from the opposition's goal, that'll get him going!
Not surprised that disciplinary action is being taken against Man U. The most unsporting team i have seen for years. Abuse of the referee, hissy fits all round, Fergie crying and generally handbags all round. In my view, the club should be banned from next year's competition and offered councelling in sporting behaviour and lessons in football rules. Respect the game Man U!
To answer post 104 is it not sad that after your team were knocked out of the champions league by the better team! you can only snipe at liverpool facts do not lie fact you were at home fact you did not score fact madrid even scored your goal ! So this myth you were better in both legs is untrue Nani feining injury made the refs mind up as to intent your out get used to it move on!
