I'm loving the half time chit chat trying to call it anything other than a dive. Totally the wrong decision, never a penalty and I don't care one bit.

AdamBrunt is right, they always don't even out but in the interests of fairness I think we're due a few more of them going in our favour before the end of the season.

Because I don't exist in your dreams, I only post on things that are happening in real life.

The only people not having the balls to day it was a blatant dive - which it was - are the pundits on BT.

The BBC and NBC all called it immediately and had the balls to say so.

What I particularly liked was Swarbrick asked the lino ( who had an even worse view ) for help.

Not quite what that has got to do with anything but then I saw who posted it.

Seems like Rashford has come of age

...let's face it, we need all the help we can get at OT this season!

I don't disagree with you and I don't care. The only time your team have been any good in the last 25 years was when you had a striker who used to go down every time someone stood next to him. It's about time we had someone up front who was a little bit savvy. It's the refs job to call him out on it and book him. And we all know how useless referees are.

True but we all know that Swarbrick would not have made that decision at any other ground in the country

Penalty aside, Rooney has been hopeless today.

edit: fair play to them. Stupid from the Captain, he might as well pack his bags now.

Scudamore is on record as saying how important it is for the Premier League that United do well in it.

That is all that needs to be said

Quite honestly about 7 of the players on the pitch should be on the transfer list. My love affair with Mourhino is getting shakey.
