    It probably made no difference in the end...

    ...but did you think the referee was shite?

    Too many pedantic free kicks, too many unnecessary bookings (what was Makelele booked for?). Some wrong decisions (a corner decision involving Joe Cole at both ends went United's way wrongly), a bizarre moment when Ferdinand tried to kick Joe Cole's head off in the penalty area and the linesman stuck his flag up only for the referee to wave play on, which probably saved Ferdinand another booking.

    And Drogba got sent off. Technically, he should have been but it was so handbags. At the same time Vidic completely lost the plot and had to be restrained by several Chelsea players and didn't get a second booking.

    This is not a complaint that Chelsea were hard done by. Yes, I noticed some stuff which I thought should have gone our way more but there we are. I just thought the ref was shite. Did others?
