United - Moyes Still Bitter!

After looking too have all three points wrapped up, things went horribly wrong at Goodison Park.

Like two daggers thrusts to the heart, I have to admit I was very grateful when the referee, Martin Atkinson, blew that final whistle as I feared one final push forward could have, incredibly, seen us lose the game.

However, David Moyes didn`t share my relief and made a bit of a show of himself on the pitch after the final whistle, verbally berating the referee. In his post match interview he continued to show his disappointment, commenting about the referee blowing for full time when Everton were surging forward in search of a most unlikely winner,

"People come to see the game not the referee. It was an incredible decision. He should have allowed the move to progress. People come here to see excitement."

But not at the expense of fair play surely! Time was up mate, accept it!

What on earth are you squealing about ?? If Atkinson had blown the whistle before the Utd corner Ferguson would still be screaming now , how many times has he run on the pitch pointing at his watch ???? Moyes didnt want " Fergie Time " , just for the referee to show a bit of fairness after he blatantly ignored Neville and Vidic kicking lumps out of everything that moved , Having said that your Serbian boy and (not so good )Evans were unable to bully Cahill were they ?

I said this on antoher thread and I will say it again. Our counter attack lasted a max of 10secs, and yet Man U had enough time to have a corner kick and get everyone in the penalty box which must have taken about 20secs, so either the ref should have blown before the corner or after we had our counter attack. Also, the original alloted time was 3mins, and since we scored 2 goals, the very minimum of time that should have been added to the original 3mins was 1min, the ref blew his whistle at 3:30mins, so we still had 30secs. so clearly the referee was wrong. If any man U fans disagree, then I find it hard how you accepted the 403 game against Man City, where Man U were given the extra time to score the winner, and didnt allow Everton 10secs, definetly Fergie time. Also, how often do you see the ref blow an end to the game when the other team has a 1v1 situation, in all the time I have watched football (which is a bloody long time) I have never seen that happened, for your sake thank god Jagielka missed, because there wouldve been hell to pay for Atkinson

I'm a Man United fan but I agree that the ref should've let the Everton attack finish before blowing the whistle. After all thats more or less standard procedure for most games, letting the last attack continue. Can't say I'm not relieved about it but honestly we have more problems to worry about then a few seconds of added time. The way we dropped 2 points was shocking.

In all fairness you are all right, but like Rob-EFC pointed out Jagielka did miss regardless and also Van Der Sar played until the attack was over. Though it is quite funny how you feel so aggreived when a couple of minutes before you would've settled for that miraculous draw.

I just wonder if the ref would have done the same if it was UTD attacking instead? I definitely wont bet my house on it thats for sure. He knew Alex would have kicked him all day if he hadnt blown, besides there was atleast 20sec left.

I know, that decision by the ref really spoiled the moment, as Moyes was too busy abusing the ref, it was disappointing but a draw feels like a win not gonna lie

Ref ******** wrong! We should have lost the game!!!!!!.......

"But not at the expense of fair play surely! Time was up mate, accept it!" Yeap nothing like 3min injury time on the added time everytime Utd need a goal, playing up to 97 min etc. The "Until we score" added time board, held by Fergie, was made because reffs always blew the whistle right on time
