“Typical!” would have been the exclamations up and down the country this evening as Danny Murphy fell to the floor like a sack of shit under a challenge from Michael Carrick. “Typical United, always getting the decisions!”
If you were curious, only West Brom have conceded more penalties at home this season, but don’t let facts get in the way of a good whinge, eh?
At 0-0 on 17 minutes at Stoke just two days ago, Gareth Barry should have been sent off and a penalty awarded to Stoke. No card or penalty were awarded.
But United get all the decisions and will probably win the league because tonight’s ref was obviously bent.
