  • CL match tonight

    I just watched Man United play against Real Madrid.

    Not that it really mattered to me which team won, but the read card killed the game in my opinion.

    I know. Seeing a team lose at Old Trafford because of a poor refereeing decision really breaks your heart, doesn't it?


    Oh no. Hold on.
    Wait a minute.

    Ha! ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
    To infinity - and beyond!

        Watched the game in a bar in Helsingborg. I too wasn't fussed which team won, but do agree it was a shite decision...

        Watching Sir Red Nose prance about after the decision was kinda funny... Irate grandad..!

        And it got even funnier when The Special one said "the best team lost"... WTF..?
        If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

          Will your next job be in England?

          A: Probably yes.

          Chelsea?

          A: silence [winces]

            Well as long as Arsenal score three or more goals in Munich, English football can avoid a long night of soul searching, eh?

            Geht's los Schalke!

                Absolutely gutted with last night's result, never a Red card, most of the opinion here backs it up:
                http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21679253

                How long is it going to be until we have something in place that cannot ruin an exciting game for players, fans and neutrals alike? This isn't just for United's benefit, almost every single club you care to name can recall some sort of decision that has completely ballsed a game for them and the decision has been made in error. How many other sports do we have left where decisions cannot be overturned on the playing surface? Tennis, Cricket, Rugby are three sports I can think of that now have independent assessment and appeals procedures. Why can football not have this. If we did we would have different results from that clear series of injustices against Chelsea v Barcelona at Stamford bridge a few seasons ago...

                  I agree with most of what you say - in cricket, for instance, the appeal process works pretty seamlessly, but then it is generally a slower paced (and relatively open ended) game. In football, I would like to see a way that contentious goals, penalties, balls crossing the line, etc. could be dealt with using technology without killing the game. BUT - in this specific case, Nani committed a foul, absolutely no question, and the only ambiguity is whether he deserved a straight red (not, imo, but so what?), and I don't see how a machine could solve that one or, if you have a panel in the stands with a TV telling a ref what to do in a situation where he is called upon to use his discretion, then what's the point of the ref or, indeed, his discretion?

                  On a related note, elder statesman Rio Ferdinand's intimidation of the ref was a disgrace made even worse by his craven attempt to cover himself by forcing the ref to shake his hand.

                    Man U bullying a ref?

                      Yeah, if you've got pundits who've seen fifty replays from different angles arguing about it still then it's obvious that a quick replay and decision isn't going to satisfy everyone. There must be a way to clear up offsides and goal-line ones though and that would be a good start.
                      For what it's worth I think that Nani's should never have been a red but when you see it at full speed you can totally see why the referee gave it.

                          How about the game versus liverpool at old trafford earlier in the season where you didn't get a kick until Shelvey was sent off? It's football. I wish people would stop trying to mess with it. It works great as it is.

                            I don't recall Fergie being too 'distraught' when a red was shown to Eboue for this challenge at Old Trafford.







                            He must've developed a taste for kung-fu in the interim.

                              Aye... strange that isn't it...? I care for neither team affiliation wise but because of his goings on and including labelling us a ''wee club'' I wanted Madrid to win...

                              Impartiality wise - Arbeloa made a meal of it - and there was no specific forward kick or 'intent' action from Nani other than to trap the ball... fair enough the ref sees it in a flash and it can look bad depending on angle/reactions... but ultimately ridiculous... (maybe google Joey Barton v Etuhu to see this same challenge WITH intent deserving red...)

                              Still, not as ridiculous as Keane turning all holier than thou in the post match chatter... didn't he say when he was a player he would have a reflection period on whether the ref was right to send him off? I only ever remember him going ape in the ref's face and/or trying to lash out as he was never in the wrong...
