We Never Get Given Anything!

We Never Get Given Anything!

Sir Alex, only just back from a five game touch-line ban, wasn`t too impressed with the officials at the Emirates Stadium.

Although not saying anything that would see him on a FA charge again, Sir Alex left nobody in any doubt that United are not getting the rub of the green when it comes to decisions in these big matches by remarking to the media afterwards,

"Obviously it`s given Chelsea a major chance now and that`s what happens."

"They got some great decisions on Saturday. We never seem to get these kind of decisions. They (Chelsea) got one to win the league at Old Trafford last season so that`s a worry. We go into these games worrying about decisions."

"Clichy on Owen was a clear penalty but we`re not going to get decisions like that in a major game."

"I`ve seen the two incidents."

"The first one was a definite flick of the hand from Vidic but it`s very difficult to see. But we all had a clear view of the second one. It was a clear penalty kick."


Yes it was but then again so was the Vidic one Sir Alex!

Rather than moan about the officiating perhaps we should take a look at why we were so lacklustre at a time when we had the ideal situation to make a real statement of intent.

Redboy you are really paving the way with improving the stereotypical, prejudice views of us United fans. Great job with doing that.

Ultimately, we shouldn't be relying on the ref to give us a decision which in turn gives us the game. Fergie shouldn't feel hard done by either, he should focus more on why or side put in such a poor performance rather than why a decision wasn't given our way.

Well he is effectively drawing the attention away from the performance onto himself. Which is something I suppose. Still, I have to say. You vital football man u fans really do loads for improving the very dim view many of us hold (thanks to the kind of folks found on republic of mancunia or the random glory hunters who can only name Rooney & Ronaldo and know nothing of the club beyond its current form), probably the most level-headed fans on this network. Can't wait for Sunday!

Why would you ask merlin? You will get a rant of anything and everything that goes against us. I understand that he's taking the pressure off our team by taking the media's eye off the performance but sometimes a media bashing is what the squad needs. Perhaps a bit of criticism will motivate them to improve and prove the doubters and critics wrong. After yesterdays performance, the squad could really do with a kick up the arse. Did Arsenal make us look average or was it our lathargic performance which made Arsenal look good? I'm not intending to take anything away from Arsenal but i'm beginning to feel we're reverting back to our early season form, we're leaving it late, not really turning up and almost expectant that we will win without ever really trying.
