Well, we certainly can't complain about the ref today! It's quite unthinkable, but we may not win this game!!

Kevin Friend trying his very hardest to gift wrap 3 points to United. Shocking refereeing for both sides all game. The penalty award being the latest joke.

Got to laugh at anyone who thinks Ibra is going to get a retrospective ban

I think you watch more United games than you do Liverpool ones, Adam!

United are playing poorly now...I wish Pogba would just bloody get on with it and stop putting his foot on the ball!

Up in Liverpool since last night - got to do something before heading out for our game.

Did Friend just wave play on with a player - possibly out cold and possibly swallowing his tongue - at his feet?

Yes he nearly stepped back on him at one point. Seriously awful refereeing all day.

Although there are so many Bournemouth players on the floor, it's hard not to step on them.

That was awful...Bournemouth will no doubt be credited for defending well but any half decent team in our situation would have won that! Pogba continues to baffle as to his reputation and price tag, he was useless as usual...Fergie was right to let him go... ...the guy is a legend in his own head I think!

...if we fail to get a CL place it'll be home games like this that have cost us...just embarrassing!

Rubbish and half baked. The substitutions made things worse! I keep reading post-match reports that say Pogba is playing really well, but every time I watch him he winds me up more than impresses me. Makes a hash of simple things far too often.

Not much positive to write, really.

That's all on us - really should be winning games like that, especially since we've been awarded our first domestic penalty in what feels like years - but we've been blowing these games all season, and that's why we don't deserve top 4.

Amazing Mings didn't get a red, and then that Arter didn't get a clear second yellow - I expect Zlatan is going to get done retrospectively though, and no real argument against it.

The ref was very poor & some of the cards given to Bournemouth early on were poor. I have watched a few of Bournemouths games & they have been unlucky, so I wasn't surprised that they got a draw, it's just a shame they probably won't do the same for the next few hard games they have coming up. United have made hard work of teams like this all season & with one team or both tonight going to drop points, this was a perfect time to win, what on paper should be an easy game. Either a draw or an Arsenal win would be useful.

Zlatan to MUTV: "I went for the ball and it was unlucky he jumped into my elbow. But it was nothing on purpose... I hope he's not injured."

The elbow was petty, the stamp was GBH! The ref missed them both and was so had he stepped over a man out prone! Quite a brutal game really, and no reason for it.

Zlatan and Mings charged with violent conduct.

IMO, Mings may get away with it, as there is a slight element of doubt. Not so sure with Zlatan.

There is no element of doubt whatsoever, he knew where his foot was going & looked the other way. Zlatan should not have let Mings head collide with his arm.

I can see why Mings would get away with it.

Far too many people are confusing 'stamping on' with 'treading on'. At no point does Mings look down to make sure Zlatan is below - so he could argue it was accidental. If he did 'stamp' then Zlatan 'stamped' on him before then

I see it similar to Costa's on Can, they both knew the player was there but easy to claim it was an accident due to looking at the ball.

Didn't work for Costa and I doubt it'll work for Mings.

And Costa got a three match ban - no mention of this being a blatantly inefficient punishment then but ... despite not being able to prove anything, the FA are led by the media AGAIN and Mings will get a longer ban.

The FA proving once again what a bunch of corrupt ******** they really are
