Mark of champions, not playing well and going away with 3 points, great win for us today. De Gea look excellent again out there, glad to see him growing in confidence. Roll on the rest og the program. Great win

Interesting decision by Atkinson to disallow a perfectly good goal when Tottenham were battering you, don't ya think?

Not really interesting fcb, though it wasnt a handball i can see how the ref has perceived it as one. Far from controversial ad you would no doubt have the world believe.

The goal was wrongly disallowed - Tottenham were completely in the ascendancy at the time, and it's pretty clear that Martin "No United games in a year" Atkinson was not going to do anything to upset your manager, for fear of being hauled over the coals yet again. The secret of your success over the years has been the ability to intimidate the officials, and it clearly showed yet again, as you were utterly terrible for the first 60 minutes against Spurs. It's not down to skill on the pitch, it's not even really down to luck (although you do seem to get your fair share of that as well) - it is down to the fact that your manager has the referees running scared of going against you, and your players are trained to surround the referee and scream in his face for something as small insignificant as a throw in. And you've been doing it for decades, and mores the pity, you've been allowed to get away with it.

No offence fcb but you seem pretty set in your opinion and it seems pointless to argue against it as it looks as if it's all you want to hear. Like I said, i dont find it interesting just another bad call in a season full of them, both for and against every team in the league. I can see how the ref perceived it as handball as it did hit Adebayors arm, personally I don't think it was and Adebayor is simply the victim of the fine line of interpretation between hand ball and ball to hand, nothing outright controversial.

Got to agree with ya nordkap, a magnificent result especially considering teh performance. Not quite sure how Young won MOTM when De Gea's individual effort kept us in the game. It's a shame he couldn't top the performance off with a clean sheet which he, not the defensive effort though, deserved.

Adebayor could not have scored the goal if it wasnt for the ball to hand, hence the goal was correctly dissallowed. No point arguing with Filth, just ignore him, he is like the noisy kid no one pays any attention to.
