United Get Lucky

United Get Lucky

Did anybody else have their heart in their mouth when Nemanja Vidic brought down Demba Ba on the stroke of half time at Upton Park yesterday?

With the crowd baying for a red card, there was a real sigh of relief when the referee, Lee Mason, only produced a yellow card.

A red card would have seen our club captain notch up red cards in successive Premier League matches having see red at Stamford Bridge last time out.

Reflecting on the incident, afterwards, you get the impression that Sir Alex Ferguson had that same hear tin the mouth feeling as we did, when he mused,

"He could have been sent off the time Ba went through. It was outside the box but he could have been sent off, I think, maybe, he got a lucky break."

We`re certainly not complaining!

I think we can thank Kuszczak for charging out to collect for that one. I genuinely believe he was off and couldn't understand why not after watching 3 replays until I noticed Kuszczak seeing the developing danger and collecting the ball after Ba had lost control.

He should have gone! I it was the other way round i would have felt hard done by! The ref bottled it in fairness! I'm not complaing as nor do i when decisions don't go our way! We were very lucky as it would have changed the whole complexity of the game.I also think our penalty was debatable but damn i'll take it!!!

Cue dubious decision for Chelsea on Wednesday, ******** karma it can be a right bitch. In saying that TheFamousNo7 makes a good point about Kuszczak reading the situation.
