  • I don`t recall any foul that was worthy of a red card, certainly none that was as bad as Adebayor`s on Carrick the previous nght which was only punishd with a yellow. Yes the ref got a number of decisions wrong but that`s cause he was a crap ref not cause he was bent. Although chelsea were undoubtedly denied a couple of stonewall penalties some of their appeals were optomistic to say the least, especially the so called handball in the last minute when the ball hit the underside of a player`s armpit.

    • I actually thought the last was the best shout cos his arm is so high, but there you go, it's all about opinions. Pique's is most peoples most certain, but I've seen them not given. Anyone remember was it sinclair, or was it Duberry, for Chelsea in the stretford end penalty area the year of our first double. You'd have been relegated if that had been given.
      If they'd had the thing in the net 2 or three times and scrubbed off for no reason I'd have a lot more sympathy with this. John Hollins deserves a lot of credit for saying (something like) "it's over, we didnt score a second and it's our own fault". I still havent heard any rank and file on the radio come anywhere near that yet.
