Technology and the occasional justified rant


Arsenal 2 – Moan Utd 2

I wasn’t going to write anything about this match, but I can’t let this go. Following today’s 2-2 draw, Moan Utd’s whining old scrote of a manager Dame Alice Ferguson accused referee Howard Webb of favouring Arsenal. Hang on, was he watching the same match as me? In the match I watched, ManUre got a free kick almost every time Arsenal made a tackle on a Utd player. In the same match, Utd’s Anderson committed three bookable offences yet only got booked once (and hence he avoided being sent off). Also, during this match, Utd were awarded a free kick when the odious grease-monkey Ronaldo fell over with no contact whatsoever from Gael Clichy. And finally, the referee wouldn’t have given the second Arsenal goal had the assistant referee not spotted that the ball had clearly gone over the line. So if that’s favouring Arsenal, I hate to think what would have happened if he’d got it in for them.

    You’re top of the league. Enjoy it. Stop worrying about Newton Heath. I can’t believe that you and the rest of Arsenull still get wound up by Ferguson – he does it deliberatly you know.

    Hang on a minute guys… Lurgie complains about a ref being biased when he clearly wasn’t (well, not in the way he saw it) and you tell me to be happy with a point. I am fairly happy with a point, but I’m not happy with Dame Alice’s sour grapes.

    If Anderson had been sent off, as he deserved, and the Arse had got a penalty when Vidic pulled Hleb over in the box, it could have been very different. So I say Utd were lucky.
