Luck?

Luck?

As Chelsea appear to be struggling to hang onto the shirt-tails of Spurs let alone the two Manchester clubs, we`re anticipating a United win this Sunday.

Fixtures at Stamford Bridge, between the two sides, have seen Lady Luck smile on Chelsea with typical incidents that spring to mind being the handball penalty and the fact that Luiz was still on the pitch to score the winner when, on other nights, he`d have already received his marching orders.

Sir Alex Ferguson appeared mindful of our bad luck when faced with the press, remarking,

"Games at Chelsea in the last few years have been tough and we`ve had terrible luck there."

"The players know what they need to do."


Could Sunday see this luck thing start too even itself out?

The same bad luck that let in 2 offside goals in the 3-1 at Old Trafford? Not that we deserved to win that game. But there have been plenty of poor decisions going both ways in these fixtures (Drogba's offside goal, Macheda's handball in the 2-1). Luiz should've went but Rooney (who scored in that game) shouldn't have been there after doing the exact same to James McCarthy the week before. Hopefully there are no shockers on Sunday either way.

He's got his good luck - Howard Webb is the refree!

BlueBanes is right, we've both been lucky on a number of occassions in recnt years in this fixture. A testament to the declining refereeing standards I reckon.

Tired of the continues babling about how referees favour one club for another, yesterday it was Mike Dean who gave a penalty to 5hitty, who in recent times have been moaning more and more about poor referee decisions. The truth is, it goes both ways, it all probably evens out come end of season, and there is nothing we can do about it, is it on one side the beauty of the game and on the other side it can destroy a teams chances of winning trophies. Until FIFA adresses the problem in a constructive manner, we will have these odd decisions, we cannot expect the referees to make 100% correct decisions in a split second, its a fact. Sure it is thoroughly annoying that 3 points are lost due too poor decisions, the alternative is too adopt a similar model from NFL where teams are allowed video proof during games.

You were certainly incredibly lucky at the Bridge today. Martin Atkinson to officiate your next game anyone? nah, your manager won't allow that. Totally corrupt.
