That Torres Red Card

Following our magnificent win, down at Stamford Bridge, late yesterday afternoon, we`ve heard nothing but bleating from Chelsea.

They seem to think they were hard done by and that the two red cards they received were harsh, but were they?

Ivanovic clearly denied Ashley Young a goal-scoring opportunity whilst Torres could have gone for a very dangerous challenge on Tom Cleverley.

As you`d expect, Sir Alex didn`t mince his words when he addressed the assembled television hacks after the game, remarking,

"Torres could have gone on and he didn`t."

"I think Jonny may have caught him just a little but you can carry on running and he chose to go down."

"He could have carried on and scored, that`s what I don`t understand."

"When I was a player, I would never have missed the chance to go through. I would have taken that opportunity to score every time."

"But he`s gone down and that is the issue. And he`s already been booked, so it`s his own fault."


I couldn`t agree more, how about you?

The mission whereby the FA go to ridiculous lengths to ensure we win everything (clearly not the case as we don't win everything) and cover it up incredibly well for no personal gain of their own.

Think it's safe to say its Chelsea who are presently living up to the pathetic little club tag at the moment. Fans whinging like children about conspiracys that exist only in their minds. Not to mention little club not even the best supported in London let alone the country

it happened in Italy, it will happen in England...it is time for the truth to come out...Fergie time, dubious calls and the fact that when Fergie criticizes a ref after a loss, that ref spends around a year not reffing united (this was Clattenburgs first game reffing United since sending Evans off at OT during that infamous 6-1 drubbing) and upon their return they subsequently give dubious decisions to united. We all know about Howard's relationship with United, how you guys got one of your board members to be on the FA's board is beyond me, and anyone with a firm understanding of corporate governance. The truth is the game is dirty everywhere and the english think that they're above others as they simply cannot fathom it happening to your league...bundesliga is miles ahead of the epl in terms of transparency and reffing. The game in England has been reduced to nothing more than a WWE kind of set up where there are heels (CFC) and heroes (ManUre). But the can of worms will be opened, the racial investigation is only the first step, when Clattenburg is fired after being found guilty, my bet is he will have a lot to say, coz he used to be a good ref, until fergie got to him.

Now I've read it all I suppose its Fergies doing that half of New York's underwater too puppet master that he is pulling every string. More like deluded ABU's clutching at straws looking for any excuse to bash United from a non existent moral high ground
