Let's Teach Sylva A Lesson

Let's Teach Sylva A Lesson

Lille players are unable to accept Ryan Giggs' controversial goal, that's a fact. UEFA ruling aside, they firmly they're right but I don't know why.

Now it was Tony Sylva, the goalkeeper who dismissed Giggs and our whole team and he's the only one who can be understood: the goal was largely his fault so he tries to blame others.

'Giggs is very intelligent, but I am not happy with the way he scored his goal at all. Football is a sport and it is necessary to play a clean game, to play without tricks. Giggs didn't do this,' said Sylva.

'If you analyse the rules, I believe that the goal should have been cancelled and that Giggs should have received a yellow card. We are still furious with the referee that night and with the players of Manchester United.

'The English claim they are the kings of fair play but that night they demonstrated they are experts in anti-sporting behaviour. The final score was totally unjust and United did not deserve the victory.'

Sylva added: 'The first match was a bad example for football. Now we will see what we can do at Old Trafford.

'Last season we accepted a 0-0 there but our objective this time is to win in order to teach a lesson to Manchester United. In the Champions League it is not only the big clubs who have the right to win.

I especially like this: 'the first match was a bad example for football'. And what was their 0-0 draw in last season's group stage when his every goalkick took 2 minutes and they went to the ground whenever a United player got close to them?

And I'm fed up with these smaller teams crying injustice. They feel they can blast us for various and henious crimes just because we are a big club and they feel we should be ashamed of this.

'The referee was not just that night in Lens and from the first moment of the game I knew we were going to have to play at 200 per cent to have a chance of getting past United.'

And we all knew last season that Tavlaridis should hit one of our strikers with an axe to get a yellow card. Get a grip, Sylva. Your team are poor, you are a mediocre goalkeeper and you made a mistake at Giggs' goal. Do not speak nonsense about the preferential treatment the big clubs receive. This is something you can do as currently there is a trend of people drooling over smaller teams as if they were the saviours of football. But you know perfectly well that you were not a victim of the referee but your own stupidity.

well a poor team and mediocre were only beaten by one goal, which may have been legal, but surely the kings of english football shouldnt have to rely on punching the opposition while they are still tying their gloves?
