We need only look to our most recent game when supposedly the best English referee judged very similar incidents in entirely different ways.
Then of course we all remember Cluttenberg the red.

If not then is that an admission by the FA of how blatantly biased that particular performance was?

Atkinson is bad but not nearly as bad as Walton. My prediction: One penalty, four yellows and a red. A boring draw playwise. Will I watch it? Damn sure I will! What else there is to do on a saturday afternoon? Should there be anything else?

I missed the City game so I want to see how defensive we are ... or not. It's a Derby match, let's play!

Until arrogant posers like Webb are made answerable for their game costing decisions instead of being regarded as squeaky clean by the equally idiotic Lancaster Gate mafia, games will continue to be ruined by them.

the manc-loving FA want a bloodbath, for which they'll seek to punish us afterwards. even my red mates think this is a shocker of a decision!
headlines will be full of it. cool heads will win this one i reckon.
