on winning the first silverware of the season.

Great goal by super sub Rooney to win the contest.

Just felt United should have played most of the game with 10 men when Vidic was the last defender when giving away the penalty early on.

Can't believe he didn't even get a booking.

:roll:

Analysis by the ex prat, sorry referee Graham Poll suggests that Phil Dowd made the correct decision because:-

" For a player to be sent off for the denial of a goal scoring opportunity, his opponent must be heading towards goal; Agbonlahor had allowed the ball to fall behind him and had stopped to collect it. As a result he was not heading towards goal when Vidic pulled his shirt. Contrary to popular football myth, the fact that Vidic was "the last man" is irrelevant."

 

I also think you were right Wolfie but is says in the paper that Vidic did not get sent off so who are we to argue. :wink:

And Dermot Gallacher said the decision was virtually impossible to defend.

I note that the FA have failed to punish one of their co-captains, they have accepted Gerrard's explanation that one, he was suggesting to the ref that he had only made two tackles and that two, he was feffing off in disgust at himself.

Image in World Cup year do you reckon or just the usual corrupt dealings of the suits and blazers?
