The press reckon Howard Webb has gifted us the title and that Manchester United always get the rub of the green. Ignoring the fact we were denied a place in the FA Cup final thanks to Mike “Manchester United fan” Riley failing to award a nailed on penalty at Wembley, Tottenham don’t have much place to complain where refereeing decisions when playing us are concerned!
1. Cristiano Ronaldo was fouled in the penalty area during the League Cup final. Ledley King embarrassingly applauded referee Chris Foy for booking Ronaldo, knowing full well he should have conceded a penalty. What goes around comes around eh, you cheating bastard.
2. The final score could have been a lot more humiliating had Howard Webb made the right decision with just six minutes played on Saturday. It would be interesting to see how Spurs would have got on with ten men for 83 minutes at Old Trafford.
