Finally watched the match last night, even though I had already read all the reports. I understand the reasoning why the Prem doesn't have them do it, but there are times where the referee needs to either issue a statement or talk to a reporter about a decision. Was the call on Kelly or not? If it was on Kelly then it was a horrible call. If it is was on Danny then while disagreeing I could see why the call was made.
Steve McManaman...There are times when I enjoy his commentary, then there are times when...
At ManUre he defended the ref not giving the penalty 'It happened so fast, yada yada yada', then kind of admitted that it should of been given when Darke called him out. Then yesterday he said a handful of times that Clattenburg made 'the brave decision'. Then followed it up by saying he couldn't tell if Danny hit the ball?? How small is the monitor in the booth?? He finally set me off by asking Darke if he believed 'in the Big Clubs get the calls nonsense
'. Um, what clubs did you play for Steve? Liverpool and Real Madrid?? Of course you would call it nonsense...you got the calls! Old Trafford is the place where refs and linesman go to pay homage to Sir Alex. Even Steve had to admit that it was a blatant offside and dive by Young v QPR. Wigan were hosed not once but twice at Chumpford Bridge on Saturday. Bad calls even themselves out for the majority of clubs, but it's "nonsense" not to admit that the big clubs don't end up in the black by season's end.
