Powell Tackle Outrage

Powell Tackle Outrage

Okay, the unbeaten record in the group went last night as we went down to a 1-0 defeat in Turkey, but something appears to have rattled Sir Alex.

Speaking after the defeat, Sir Alex complained bitterly about the foul on Nick Powell, by Felipe Melo, that went unpunished, with Sir Alex remarking,

"There were two shocking challenges in the first 10 minutes - they were lucky to keep 11 men on the pitch."

"But being so early in the match you perhaps get away with these kinds of things."


I guess you probably do, especially in front of a hot-headed crowd needing only the slightest excuse to boil over!

The whole team were putting it about! Most Turkish teams are the same though they seem to have taken the worst divers and hatchetmen and molded them into a squad. Not the best of ways to play but seemingly quite effective. Think the crowd being so volatile got them of the hook a few times as the ref bottled it. He was probably scared of getting stabbed afterwards.

There certainly was more than just 2 bad challenges, began to wonder how half the opposing team were still on the pitch. At times it seemed they were more interested in hurting us rather than playing football. The ref bottled it big time and I suspect like MotorMad said it was predominately to do with the ref being intimidated and scared. All the same though his bottling it put the players careers at risk, if refs are too scared to call a potential career ending injury up and follow it up with red card then the Turks are going to keep on doing it and putting more players at risk.
