Unexpectedly, The FA Gives United A Massive Boost

Unexpectedly, The FA Gives United A Massive Boost

When Steven Gerrard walked away from the referee mouthing 'fuck off' and flicking a V-sign towards him I held my breath in horror. He's going to get a straight red, I thought, and he will be ruled out of their visit to Old Trafford.

But of course it is Stevie Me so the ref let him go and now I hear that he's unlikely to reconsider his decision, meaning that the FA will let the matter drop, allowing Gerrard to get away without any punishment.

Normally, I would rage against the injustice which I should have learnt to accept a long time ago but this time I realized that the FA wanted to help us! Consider this: if they ban Gerrard, Liverpool would be forced to play someone else at Old Trafford, someone who might actually give a damn about the season and who doesn't act like some sulky primadonna. In our current state, that might have been disastrous.

Instead we'll get this Gerrard who barely had a kick of the ball at Wigan, a side we hit for five twice this season. Thanks FA!

Liverpool did not need him when they stuffed MU for the 3rd time on the bounce earlier this season !

Coming from the supporter of a club whose centre-forward consistently tells referees to "***** off" in that twisted, ugly snarl that he does, with spit flying in all directions, I find this article one of the most hypocritical I have ever read. Finally, I see United are still OBSESSED with Liverpool football Club, regardless of how poor we are. It must be that number 5.

We can take care of them when we have to face them,there is no need for us to worry,lets just take one game at a time and prepare for Milan.

The FA cant afford to have any more england players in the limelight for the wrong reasons.If the ref was happy with it, fair enough - he might have deserved it. It doesnt matter who is playing for liverpool they will raise their game against us - the only thing they have to hang onto is their record against us in the last 2 seasons and their former glory in europe. It will be a tough game.

lol trader and pickyscouser - you beat us quite well earlier in season - but Jamiebob should have been sent off for his foul on Owen - just like Vidic should have been sent off against Villa.
At least we have one trophy this season with the prospect of another 2!

Just seen the "incident", if one of our players was disciplined for that I'd be annoyed. It wasnt right and with these new respect laws maybe action should be taken against him, but it really wasnt a big deal.

To be honest I would have preferred Gerrard to be banned, even though he is an awful person he is capable of really great things on the pitch, whether anyone here will admit it or not.
