It's funny how the ref is always in Fergie's pocket when you play at Old Trafford. Over 6 minutes of added time when there should have been 4? If you can explain that, write it down on a piece of paper, fold it, and stick it up your Stratford End.
Bloody daylight robbery.
Who ever said there should have been exactly 4? The time indicated by the fourth official only indicates the minimum amount of time to be added on. For all the wannabe football supporters on this site, could I recommend a swift perusal of the rules of the game. It would make the discussion far more interesting.
City scored on 90, the board had already displayed for a minimum of
4 minutes of added time. Looking at the second half, 3 goals (before 90) = 3 minutes + 3 subs (before 90) = at least 4 minutes and 30 seconds to be added on + injuries.
1 minute was added for the city goal in injury time (as per the rules) => a minimum of
5 minutes 30 seconds of added time. United brought on Carrick in the 92nd minute => +30 secs (as per the rules) and we arrive at a minimum of 6 minutes.
United scored after 5 minutes and 26 seconds. Another minute to be added on for that goal, and we're approaching 7 minutes of added time. All is fair, unless you don't know the rules of the game, like the majority of posters in this forum.
But hey, its much more fun bashing United through your (not specifically just knobspots) own ignorance than engaging in proper football discussion.
