It Was a Penalty….But!

It Was a Penalty….But!

It is not very often that Sir Alex Ferguson comes out and admits that the opposition were hard done by!

Even if on this occasion he does try to re-dress the balance slightly by pointing out that Stephen Kelly could have been penalised for a handball, and a subsequent penalty.

Speaking about the referee`s decision to ignore Fulham`s claims for what seemed like a stonewall penalty last night, when Michael Carrick looked for all the world as if he`d tripped Danny Murphy as he burst into the box, Sir Alex commented,

"Yes, Michael tapped their players` heel and they had a good claim, The referee was lenient also in the first half when we should have had a penalty for handball, maybe the referee was thinking about that."

Or worrying about the verbal blast he`d receive for, quite probably, depriving us of two points!
