Fergie Fuming Over Inches

Fergie Fuming Over Inches

The assistants of the United v Portsmouth FA Cup 4th round game must be happy that United eventually won the game, for they did everything possible to invoke Fergie's wrath and that's not an enviable thing.

In the first half, Vidic's header was cleared from behind the line by Mendes yet the goal did not stand. After the interval, Larsson's beautfil goal was ruled out for offside, wrongly. It was the first of the decisions that really angered our Scot manager as it was much more blatant than the first one.

'They talk about referees being full time but it hardly matters if the linesman cannot do his job,' fumed Ferguson.

'The linesman was standing right there on the goal-line, yet he cannot see a ball that is a foot over the line; not inches, a foot. It was incredible.'

'Those decisions can kill you. If we had lost the game we would have been really sick because it would have been unfair.'

OK, it's not about inches but a foot - according to Fergie. I don't know which of us is better mathematics but I believe it was no more than six or seven inches. Does not matter the slightest as it clearly crossed the line but I thought I'd mention that Fergie did exaggerate this time. No surprises there...

So times it goes for you & sometimes it doesn't. They say in time it equals itself out.

Fergie on TV yesterday said They were close calls. And taking caera angels into consideration, who knows. He didnt sound annoyed, agitated or even too concerned. He just said it adds weight to technology, but more importantly in his eyes was how well pompey have come on, and are now a team to be admired. He also said it as by far, the best game played over the weekend, with eveything you want in a game. tension, skill (on both sides) and a hero (Wayne). So where does the writer of this story get all the drivel from about How Fergie is fuming etc? As Storagematt said. You win some decisions, you lose some. As my mate said, Did you here the manchester fans or club complain when Pedros goal for Spurse didnt get given? no! So lets all be pleased shall we. Pompey played good football. man utd won so everyones happy. Including Fergie
