The Winning Goal

Okay, okay, so Javier Hernandez might have been half a yard offside when he darted back to deflect the winning goal, but it`s about time we got lucky at Stamford Bridge.

Talking about that moment, Sir Alex Ferguson commented afterwards,

"They say the winning goal could have been offside and that is a bit of luck we got."

"It`s been 10 years since we last won at Chelsea and there have been some shocking decisions down here in that time."


There might have been some bad ones but I think shocking is a bit strong!

So, when will he get enough of that? Welbecks pen was never a pen last year. Two offside goals at OT. Evans still on the pitch with a chest high challenge at SB three years ago. In fact it was Drogba who got booked for diving. Ok we've had some lucky breaks against you, but to pretend that you have always had shocking ones going against you is childish and biased. Ffs the man is 70 something and has more than 25 years of experience. Why is he acting like the victim when the whole world knows he's everything but that?

Wow that jokes still not funny even after the 1000th time I've heard it. FrLamp ferguson saying decisions never go our way is his way of putting pressure on the refs to give decisions our way, it's a mind game every manager attempts Fergie just happens to be the best at it.

Chica came back from offside but at the end of the day the goal stood - sick of pathetic little tripe coming from the mouths of Chelsea chav fans - some decent fans amongst the Chelsea crowd - but a lot of chavs too

niteworlok, a manure fan calling Chelsea fans as "chav". Bit of irony there.

Truth must be told though. An own goal, 2 red cards, an offside winner and yet United barely managed to snatch it. Not worried in the slightest for the return leg. Should be fascinating, providing a competent ref is put in charge.

So fans shouldn't complain? Take it on the chin and accept crooked refereeing?
