Re: Bet Bagpuss is legless this afternoon

it's obvious were the battle lines are drawn on this thread.. anti Man Utd...started by ex-communitated so called "local team" supporters... local team supporters that cannot grasp the fact that United are a local team, and as a local team they are of course the oppostion.. but these people have turned nasty in their bitter, twisted hatred... a bitter hatred and envy that comes from long years of desparation where all hope has gone..and fear of the mighty has turned into hatred of our cause... the cause that all northern people should folllow... support for Man Utd...this is the only path to follow.

Re: Bet Bagpuss is legless this afternoon

just a few words I feel i must say...

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day

or was it boxing day ?

You mean like the desperation envy and bitter twisted hatred shown by United fans for Liverpool during 26 title-less years Mancie

Re: Bet Bagpuss is legless this afternoon

Just read about Howard Webb saying he was wrong to award a penalty the other day and remembered an earlier discussion on this thread. If the Pro footballers think this way then surely we are entitled to??

Quote:
Meanwhile, it has emerged Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas could face disciplinary action over his comments about Webb's decision.

The Football Association has given him seven days to respond to his remarks in which he said Webb had "crumbled under pressure".

Jenas was quoted as saying: "The atmosphere, the occasion, the importance of the match, a lot of factors take their toll when making decisions."

Also a discussion on the BBC 606 pages with the latest post being

It's bad enough only four teams have a realistic chance to win the league. Add the referees' perceived favouring of them, and the question for the rest is why bother?

Cool Re: Bet Bagpuss is legless this afternoon

Iím a bit surprised that there have been no comments either good or bad on Unitedís resurgence to lead the Premier League and booking their place in the Championís Final.

I wish the real reds all the best in their quest of four trophies in one season.

Much has been said today about the Fletcher sending off, with comments of variations on ďit was a fair tackle, the ball deviated etc.Ē

But all the pundits and commentators have missed the major point. And that is that the referee can only adjudicate on what he sees.

One view from behind the referee showed precisely what the referee saw. He saw Fletcher bring down the Arsenal player in the penalty area and as the last defender he was quite rightly shown the red card. The ref also saw the ball shoot off to the side but he didnít see the reason for it doing so. In other words he didnít see who kicked it sideways.

The ref did not see the numerous replays from other angles like we all did and people are judging on those views and not what the ref saw. We saw that Fletcher did kick the ball away before bringing down the forward. Did anyone see Fletcher tug at the playerís shirt a split second before lunging for the ball?

What is wrong is that UEFA will only rescind a red card if there is a case of mistaken identity. There should be a ruling to allow a red or yellow card to be rescinded after viewing video evidence if the evidence clearly shows that the referee made a mistake.

In the Fletcher incident no amount of video evidence would get him off, because of the shirt tug.

Re: Bet Bagpuss is legless this afternoon

It was not a penalty and we all know it and now the ref also knows it. I have always been against video replay but with the speed of the game today plus all of the "diving", I,m changing my thoughts. There are cameras from almost every angle in the big games and an official would be able to determine in seconds just what happened and relay it to the ref. It happens in most other professional team sports so why not football. I know that every game couldn,t be covered but it should start somewhere and maybe eventually work down to the lower divisions.
