West Ham Captain’s Embarrassing Complaint

Manchester United drew level with West Ham in injury time on Saturday to force a replay.

West Ham captain, Kevin Nolan, feels put out though, believing the referee allowed too much added time to be played.

“I was baffled by the four minutes, but you have to get on with it and see if you can see it through. Unfortunately we could not do it,” said Nolan. “Everyone realised it should not have been four minutes. But you will have to ask (referee) Mr Atkinson that, because I am not getting a fine. But it tends to happen, and it is no thing towards big teams. Manchester United have done it for years, they have been fantastic and a top team, hats off to them because they go to the final whistle.”

Time of goal: 90:22

Is Nolan suggesting that no added time should have been played, despite six substitutes? Hmmm. Those extra 22 seconds really did some damage…

    Can’t stand Nolan and that chicken tonight celebration he does. Plonker.

    The manager had a bit more class… right?

    Big Sam: “United were a long ball club in the end” :LOL:

    hahahahahahhaha. We HAVE to do these fuckers at OT. Play VP from the start.

  5. Peter says:

    I agree with Nolan. There were 2 mins maximum, but thats the way it goes.

    Substitutions do not stop the clock, that is why teams run the clock down at the end of games by using them !

    Yes we will probably beat them at OT, but give them credit, and their supposed embarrasment of a captain. He is a good player, scores goals, and deserves credit, as do most of their midfield, as they very nearly beat us, and all it did was expose our weaknesses in defence yet again. How can we be mugged by the same thing twice for 2 goals ?

    They were not just long ball. They mixed it. For all the hard work, and passing that we did, they were resolute, and hats off to them.

  6. Pratyush says:

    Yup, we have to thrash them at OT.

  7. carlbrr says:

    Nolans got a valid point I’ve no idea where the ref got 4 mins from. 4mins is a long time so Man Utd didn’t panick like they would’ve if only 1 min had been shown. Good goal though

  8. WeAreUnited says:

    ahahahahahhaha

    the goals I think came at the 91 minute???? so that’s less than 4 minutes.

    And teams that have been traling us this year have usually gotten the 4 minutes.

    CMOOON! ridicuolous.

    not saying it doesn’t happen, but it happens also to City and others. Nolan go home and drink some mil to grow up. please mate

    We Are ManUtd and we’ll do what we want!!!!!!!!!

    What an idiot, regardless that we scored within 1st minute of extra time. Shouldn’t it have been at least 3 minutes anyway (30 seconds per sub)? A whole extra minute added on top by the nasty ref? Ludicrous.

  11. tom c says:

    both assists and goals in this game were fucking perfect. let them fuckers not take anything away from us.

  12. King Eric says:

    Oh fuck off Nolan you scouse cunt. Always fucking moaning.

    It is really sad when fans of others disguise as one of united, really pathetic and this is an example of that.

    What an idiotic claim!anyway it doesn’t bother me to hear this claim from someone who doesn’t have the ball to say the truth and admit that we are the king of comeback, a timid claim like this gives you an idea how much he is jealous and ignorant.Big Sam was far more mature and dealt with the last equalizer with utmost rationality, he has even credited RVP and Giggs for that incredible comeback.it’s always nice to say the truth even if its against your own ideals.in my opinion its just a matter of time before Noble realize his own stupidity.

  16. ( . )( . ) says:

    “Big Sam” (fat Sam) is a turd on a stick and should regrow the ‘tache and get back to selling sausages and mince from a small town shop while dreaming of being discovered by a big club

  17. Costas says:

    I suspect the dippers will embarass themselves even more when they hear who will take charge this Sunday…

  18. King Eric says:

    Fletch – Alright pal. I didn’t hear Sam say that. What I DID hear him say was our first goal was good enough but the second was just pure quality.

  19. JGP126 says:

    Well at least “Peter” has some grown up comments and an objective view – all the eloquent comments about beating us “f***ers” at OT – well, i dare say you will but, come on guys, for a change ITV had a great game to show, we managed to show up the numerous weaknesses in your oh so lucky to be top of the table side and it needed a world class goal from the ex-gooner and top diver to save the day – I don’t think you could have had too many complaints had we held on.
    You equally don’t “do what we want” – the imbeciles who held onto the ball, not once but twice, even outraged the great Sir Alex.
    Oh, and as for us being a bunch of “f***ers”, I’d hoped we’d moved on these days particularly after the fabulous tribute paid to Bestie at Upton Park – one last thing, much hype about Mr Beckham being there, I had to remind my excited daughter that 2 far better players were also watching, Sir Trevor and one of my all time heroes, the great Sir Bobby. Now, apart from losing at Upton Park in the upcoming League match, go on and take the League back – Chelsea have self destructed, Spurs won’t last and City don’t deserve to buy it again.

  20. King Eric says:

    SWHU – Oh bore off pal. So in “Fergie time” is it only United that are allowed to put the ball in the onion bag or can both teams score? “Fergie time” “Refs in pockets” . Yawn.

  21. King Eric says:

    samuel – Well said and as far as I am aware they DO stop the clock for subs.

  22. samuel - united WE stand says:

    King eric – exactly, people seem to highlight the extra time given when united play more while clearly, the minutes giving actually applies to the two teams on the pitch. This “fergie time” rubbish was drummed up by ABU’s and that bandwagon has been rolling on for long, anyone outside football would think united’s opponents are all tied up and we are allowed a free run to goal.

  23. samuel - united WE stand says:

    JGP – what on earth are you rambling on about? Missed out on your lemonade and pills again? Muppet.

  24. Ash says:

    Guys we even bother to reply to guys like JGP and SWHU. They are wum. Its no surprise that there is hardly any mention about the handball by cunt Suarez. Imagine if that was rooney. It would have been in headlines even in USA paper. And what is more surprising the opponent manager supporting Suarez. Another fucking Joke.

    I hope we thrash Scouse. A big win due against them.

  25. Ash says:

    *Why we even bother to reply

  26. redninja says:

    Lossers always have complains

  27. five says:

    Peter’s posts were objective and a fair view there’s no need to resort to calling him a disguised United fan instead of actually engaging in mature discussion.

    Great cup tie, Joe Cole’s crosses were mint but we should not have conceded the same goal twice we need to sort that defense out.
    Giggs is just a whole other level of man to pull off quality from that left wing at this age, he’s been rejuvanated since the Swansea game and with Valencia not performing and Nani missing it’s been a welcome return to form.

  28. Andromeda says:

    Completely off topic but really sick about rumors saying “Fergie is already searching for a new keeper and De Gea will ditched out”it seems that the press won’t give the lad a chance to shine, always writing him off.I know he is mature enough to deal with all these stupidity but it irks me a lot to see the press how much they are obsessed with our talented keeper.

  29. nicky says:

    what’s wrong with de gea? Yes, he’s not our schmeichel or van der sar, but he can be much better than both of them given time… he’s young, energetic, plays with his heart, and willing to improve, so I believe in him 10000%… Let the fuckin media predict what they like…

    Big sams head is fuckin huge! Hes like jabba the fucking hut! Chewing his fucking chewing gum with shite flying out the sides of his mouth! If you gubbed that cunt ur hand would get lost in his massive fat head! And fuck nolan to. 22 seconds your having a laugh! Hahaha

  31. ak47 says:

    I guess that handball by Collins is something they didn’t see, probably because they’re not use to see the ball so close to the ground.

    Also missed out on the 2 injuries? Cole got hit in the face and then decided to have treatment on the pitch, and when someone got winded, the play inexplicably stopped for the player to receive treatment!

    What more do you expect from a scouse cunt?

  32. StatesideAussie says:

    Four minutes was spot on. It’s easy to do the calculation: i remember the FA explained how it works a few years back after Owen scored that famous winner against Shitty deep in added time. Couldn’t be simpler: 30 seconds for each sub, plus one minute for each second-half goal, plus any other time necessary for significant stoppages. In this case, there were 6 subs, and one second-half goal (prior to added time), which adds up to four minutes. Occasionally, you’ll see more or slightly less. I have seen matches where the “formula” should have resulted in more time than was actually allowed.

    Another mistake that people (including commentators) frequently make is counting the added time to the second. As soon as it goes 1 second over the allotted added time, they start bleating for the ref to whistle (especially if United are behind at that point). Then, if we score, they yell “Fergie time” and all that shit. But the FA has made it quite clear: the added time figure is the minimum amount of added time, rounded down in minutes. 4 minutes of added time actually means “at least 4 minutes, but no more than 5–unless something unusual happens in stoppage time itself, that would justify adding even more time”.

  33. LonestarRed says:

    The gentlemen I sat next to at the my last MENSA meeting said his name was Kevin Nolan. Could it have been THIS Kevin Nolan ? Not likely huh,,,OK. Wrong one.

  34. keanoisdaman says:

    Peter……I think you will find that 30 seconds is supposed to be added for every substitution

  35. McDavidson says:

    6 substitutions, four minutes added time n u said it shouldn’t hav been so? Lol still go n learn more abt football rules

  36. JGP126 says:

    “belfast red” – what a cretin, clearly a foul mouthed idiot to shame your club, so much for moderating the site.
    and “samuel” clearly doesn’t have the mental capacity for a reasoned argument – or how to understand one.
    what a generally nasty vitriolic small minded bunch of reds you have managed to gather all in one site – i can’t begin to imagine what helpful comments there would have been online from that lot had RVP not signed and the mighty MUFC were in the 7th or 8th place they’d be without him – funny old game eh.

  37. keanoisdaman says:

    @jp,you mean the same 7th or 8th place they were without him last season?? clown

  38. tom c says:

    RvP a diver? fuck off you deluded shithead.
