Same comments that you get from a fair number fo clubs/players/managers these days......
A shame but they're all as bad as each other......one or two honest managers would be nice to see one day ;-(
How can you say that about United? Sure, he'll challenge some 50/50 decisions in the media sometimes, but as far as I'm concerned, 90% of the time, he calls it right.
For example today:
Ferguson: "Liverpool will feel very unlucky".
He told Sky Sports: "It was a fantastic result. We had a lot of narrow escapes and Liverpool upset our rhythm. They will feel very unlucky and they deserve to.
"It is a massive result for us. We broke away late on against Fulham and scored and now we've done it here. We've had that bit of luck in the last two weeks but you need luck if you are to win titles."
Ferguson admitted referee Martin Atkinson was right to send off Scholes, adding: "I've seen it, he's lifted his hand and you can't do that.
"I think the referee got one right in terms of intent."
I don't think anybody, no matter how biased, could contend with his summary.
(I wasn't sure whether I should post this here or in the "Arrogance of the Top 4 teams" thread)
I can just imagine Wenger's comments in a similar position: "We deserved to win today. Liverpool played for a draw. The referee was incredibly biased against our players. I never saw the Paul Scholes incident, but I would prefer to stand in front of an FA gestapo firing squad before I'd admit that Scholes swung a punch at Alonso. Please excuse me while I ring Pizza Hut".
