United’s 1-1 draw is a little hard to swallow considering the manner of Newcastle’s goal.

What most people with eyes deem a clean tackle by Rio Ferdinand was blown up, initial we thought it was for a corner. Instead it was punished with a penalty.

So here is the tackle, decide for yourself.

I trust you have two working eyes and will be able to make a rational decision unlike Mike Jones andย John Flynn.

    You’d think the ref would have overruled assistant. Makes you think he didn’t see it at all.

    “I saw a corner. You say penalty. Are you 100% sure you saw man before ball”.

    Where was Phil Dowd when we needed him

  2. RedScot says:

    Piss take, totaly pissed off.

  3. Chudi says:

    Howard Webb wouldn’t have let that happen *rolls eyes*

  4. RedScot says:

    Christ none of the Newcastle players reacted to the tackle.I blame Sep Blatter, for this.
    The 4th official must see the ball deviate on his monitor.Why the fuck does he not intervene.Its a fucking disgrace.

  5. BlueScott says:

    Ha Ha. Yoonited in poor decision shocker. You’ve had enough poor decisions go in your favour to last a lifetime. Get over it andd move on – if you’d have been 2-0 up when it happened then it wouldn’t have mattered would it?

    • Chudi says:

      The cheek of it, an Everton fan! The game has absolutely nothing to do with your team and you’re here passing comment? Go find 2 pennies to rub together!

    • RedScot says:

      We will get over it andd move on.Whats your point?

      • BlueScott says:

        My point, oh blinkered one, is this: You can hardly claim to have been blighted with bad luck and poor refereeing decisions over the years can you? So, blame the players for not being more than one up, blame Sralex for poor tactics or – as you’ve chosen to do – blame the ref. After all, he was the only person in shorts who made a mistake today wasn’t he? No? Didn’t think so. So, like I said, move on and(d) get over it.

        • RedScot says:

          oh blinkered one.We are not interested in your view.What do you not understand about that.Go Troll elsewhere.I do not normally swear at football supporters.You are testing my patience.
          Its a crap day for United.You simply appear to gloat.What do you know about Sir Alex’s tatics, tell us?

  6. BlueScott says:

    Another supporter gloating in the face of a draw at Old Trafford? How terrible! I bet you were inconsolable when those scummy blue mancs stuffed you the other week. Stop sulking and whining – the rest of us are used to crap decisions and poor results but you’ve been spoilt. 3rd for you lot this season if you’re lucky…

    • RedScot says:

      Do you suffer from Aspergers syndrome, you display all the signs.?

      • BlueScott says:

        Not at all, my angry red friend. Have a great evening and don’t miss match of the day tonight: Mr Hansen is sure to be sympathetic to your cause ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Anyway, I’m off out for a few drinks and an enjoyable evening. Don’t sulk all night…

        • RedScot says:

          I thought you were drunk when you were posting.
          Enjoy yer swallie.Plus fighting for money and sticking between the great divide of Stanley Park.
          I know who I would see as a threat.Not the ‘Toffe’s.
          Your Stadium sucks like Anfield.Both shit holes, filled with shites.

    Another reason why we need technology in football,even a blind person would have gotten that decision right

  8. RedScot says:

    Athletico Madrid 1 up against Real Madrid.Class.

    • BlueScott says:

      So you’re an Athletico Madrid fan as well?!

      • RedScot says:

        A football fan Blue, I watch all football.Its called knowledge to know what you are speaking about with confidence.
        Enjoy yer pint’s mate.Catch ye later.I wont send Kisses.Och i will, Look up in the Sky …Toffee, I send a Glesga kiss to you.Come close to my face.

        • BlueScott says:

          A scotsman “supporting” yoonited…says it all really. As for your other comments, well, bitter doesn’t really do it justice. “I don’t normally swear” followed by a headbutting threat? And you ask me if I’m the one with a syndrome??!! Classic stuff! Now I know that shower across the road (from Manchester, not Glasgow) are a bitter bunch but you’re starting to push them close now.

  9. RedScot says:

    Ok.whats wrong with a Scot Supporting United?.
    United have many and had great Scots throughout their magnificent history.I can name many.
    You think its funny to dick me up, a relative youngster and United fanatic.My Dad( CRYING) was a United fan,from Manchester he sat me on his knee and we listened and watched United when i was growing up.He died when I was 5.I have 12 brothers and sisters from a Catholic family.
    We have over 600 Million fans world wide.

    • BlueScott says:

      Boohoo! I’m filling up here! (I’m not really, I’m sitting in the pub with 5 mates who are doing the same as I am: cracking up laughing at your comments!)

      I tell you what, I’ll remove that hook from your cheek and set you free. Don’t eat too many deep fried mars bars jock! LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Frankie says:

    Bluescott is a little obsessed with United isnt he?

    He’s showing all the signs of a bitter bertie?

    Forever in our shadow.

    • RedScot says:

      Spot on Frankie, he likes the look of a young @ss.
      Shame he has a lame brain, he is from Liverpool as Chudi told us.
      I trust our Boss. And tend to read a blog before I post.

      • BlueScott says:

        Oh dear, ganging up on the poor Evertonian? Well don’t worry lads, I’m not going to get as wound up as you lot obviously are. Actually, as a Liverpudlian (and not being far from Manchester, unlike you lot) I know a few manc reds. Thank fuck they’re not as bitter and twisted as you internet nerds. I’m off to the bar for another pint so play nice until I get back. XXX

        • RedScot says:

          We aint wound up Toffee. Get back to yer bar, with your sad mates.Gloating at United, and how To you bring them down.
          Blue read an Article I will think through, that you will read, or listen to.The Tortoise and the Hare, tommorrow.You are not a threat Sweetie.
          United recognise the threats!
