The FA and the referees are in Manchester United's pocket, never forget that, Rafa told us as much last season so it has to be true. They proved it once again: even though Michael Ballack himself admitted that he fouled Patrice Evra in the build-up to Chelsea's second goal yesterday the FA takes no action because Foy's report indicates he had seen the incident.
He had seen it, yes, and decided that it did not warrant any action. And he actually has the nerve and the cheek to include this in his report. I'm quite speechless, to be honest, as it was a clear foul, a disgraceful one at that, and he saw it. It is astonishing, especially if you take into consideration how tender and gentle he was when he saw Ballack lying on the ground a few minutes earlier: he immediately stopped play and hurried to the Chelsea midfielder to enquire about his well-being.
It's not the first time of course that Chelsea are allowed to bully Evra: he was banned for four games last year even though no evidence backed up the claim that he attacked a member of the Chelsea staff while pictures showed quite clearly their groundsman throwing a punch at him. Still, Chelsea got no punishment and Evra was banned after such a scandalous and outrageous hearing that it's shameful even by FA standards: for instance, United staff members' accounts were brushed aside without any factual evidence to back up the Chelsea version of events.
But at least we can be comforted by the knowledge that Fergie controls the FA. After all, if Rafa said so, it must be true.
