'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Did Pulis Have a Point?

The three points, yesterday, were very welcome and I cannot have been alone in thinking that when Stoke equalised we were going to drop another two points.

Although it was a fiercely competitive game there were very few incidents that were controversial, except for maybe one whereby Gary Neville could well have been taking that dreaded long walk.

In the aftermath of the match, the Stoke City manager, Tony Pulis, seemed to think that with Gary Neville staying on the pitch his side were on the wrong end of a decision that might have affected the outcome of the game, something he harped on about long into the night during his post match press conference when he remarked,

"If it was a Stoke City player playing at Old Trafford and he committed two fouls like that, what do you think would have happened?"

"I didn`t have a word with the ref afterwards. I gave him a miss."

"Refs make good decisions and bad ones."

"But when they make decisions actually affecting a game, it`s disappointing."

"We are very upset. We`ll take it on the chin, as this football club always does."

"But if the shoe was on the other foot, it might have been different. That`s the big disappointment."

"We`ve now had four major decisions go against us in nine games. Three were banker penalties which weren`t given and now this. People say they even themselves out over a season but that`s rubbish."


Now normally I`d dismiss such claims as sour grapes but on this particular occasion I have to admit that maybe Pulis had a point and on another occasion Gary Neville may well have, probably deservedly, taken that long walk.

Does anyone share these views or am I barking up the wrong tree?
