United - That Penalty?

United - That Penalty?

Here at Vital Manchester United, we try to take an honest approach to events.

Therefore, we feel that Ian Holloway has a justifiable gripe when he goes on to talk about the penalty that wasn`t given last night.

With Blackpool leading 2-0, there`s no doubt in my mind that Rafael did take out Varney and that Blackpool should have been given the opportunity to score fro the spot and make it 3-0.

On reflection it was a defining moment in a fixture that was as entertaining as any I`ve seen this season.

Could United have come back from 3-0 down? I guess we`ll never know.

But, after the match, the Blackpool boss, Ian Holloway, did have afew words to say about the incident, remarking,

"If that`s not a penalty then deary, deary me."

"Rafael makes no effort to play the ball at all, he wipes the player out and it`s a stone-waller."


You`ll not get any argument from me there, we just got lucky!

People say swings and roundabouts but it should never be the case of that. You won't catch me moaning however.
