1-0 15′ (PG) Wayne Rooney
2-0 68′ Paul Scholes
Lucky today but you win some you lose some. Scholes was incredible today, he just gets better!
lucky as hell! Ashley Young is a better actor than a footballplayer. Why do the refs ALWAYS respect United so much????
Aww boo hoo... sitting down in 8th, lol! Over the season these events even themselves out and we have deserved a few. It's not like we wouldn't have beat them anyway. Chelsea yesterday got 2 offside goals, Balotelli should have been sent off in the first half today and against Tottenham. Newcastle got a penalty against Rio when it shouldn't have been. It happens! I'd be more worried about your own team Liverpool lying in 8th below Everton. UNITED NEVER DIE! 20!
Luck with the first because Of the offside, followed by penalty and the red card. We won easily, so not that lucky after all!
won easily because QPR had to play with 10 men.....
Yes because had QPR had 11 players, they would have easily won the match.
welbecks goal was wrongly disallowed so i'd say it evens up on the penalty decision.. red card was stupid tho
Wellbeck was just offside, by a matter of inches but was still offside.
@disagrees, do you not know the offside rule? http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... '"any part of his head, body or feet is nearer to his opponents' goal line than both the ball and the second-last opponent (the last opponent typically being the goalkeeper). The arms are not included in this definition." This is taken to mean that any part of the attacking player named in this decision has to be past the part of the second-last defender closest to his goal line (excluding the arms) and past the part of the ball closest to the defenders' goal line' The right foot of the QPR player is the furthest back part of his body excluding his arms and Welbeck has parts of his body in front of that foot. They even drew a nice white line across the pitch to show everyone he was offside. No mention during commentary of a poor decision. No mention in bbc match report of a poor decision. Pwning with logic, reason and evidence is so satsifying. Incorrect disagrees, not so much. Anyone want to explain where I've got wrong in my evaluation?
This has not got anything to do with luck. It`s just a really bad ref. Hope he will be punished with some games in the lower leagues. United would have trashed QPR anyway.
They only scored a goal after the peno, thats no trashing. And getting a decision from a useless ref is generally called luck!
Please give me an explanation on what "luck" is. Is it some divine power from beyond? Is there a luck-god that chooses who will receive his blessings?
No, my friend, the world is built on coincidences based on what we do.
For the first time in my life I was not happy for a United goal. miserable ref by punishing situation that really was an offside situation. And a totally wrong red card as well.... But United at won this match even if QPR had played with 11 the hole match because we are a better team and never loose these kind of matches. And now when City lost against Arsenal, I celebrate the Sunday with a bottle of RED wine!!!!
One of the worst ref/linesman decisions of the season for the red card and peno. He should have the red scrapped. Great goal by Scholes.
That shouldn't of been a Red Card. Young was offside anyway. Sympathy to Derry. But... WE ARE 8 POINTS CLEAR NOW!!!! 20th Title is nearly there!! :D
Truly shocking. Offside, blatant dive with no contact and a red card to top it off. The refs in this league need to seriously fuck off with this obvious cheating, its disgusting. Young has previous too, he's always chucking himself to the floor the cheating cunt. Remember when he done it against Milner when we dicked you 6-1
You can take your 6-1 and we'll take our 20-2 Keep looking up!
Oh my god that was shocking!!!! Truly shocking!!! I never seen anything like it!
You mustn't watch many Utd games then, it happens all the time.
Oh yeah, because Adam Johnson totally didn't dive to win a PK that let city beat Fulham... right? Everything evens itself out.
Oh you mean the same game where Silva was hacked from behind for a definate penalty that wasn't given? Yeh I remember it. Speaking of Fulham, how wasn't Danny Murphy given a penalty the other night at old trafford? Face it, Utd get a vast amount of dodgy decisions going their way.
Penalties for since 03/04: Arsenal 49, Chelsea 46, Liverpool 44, City 39 and United 38. The PL top six have conceded 25 pens this season (Man Utd 3, Man City 3, Arsenal 4, Spurs 1, Chelsea 5, NUFC 9). Spread. Face it, you are talking out of your back side.
I really think we have to start sending players off for diving or attempting to go down easily to buck this awful trend were in. Players get into the box and now think, "when can I go down". Commentators and pundits now say "you have to go down if you get the chance", no doubt managers and coaches will say the same. We saw today that a player can unfairly get sent off when another player dives. Conversely, if you're caught trying to get someone sent off, you should be sent off. It would change the whole game in a matter of weeks and would eventually make the referees job easier since players will try their hardest not to go down. As for this match, typical Old Trafford decision. Even Patrick Viera before this incident could see that big clubs get an easier time of it, especially at home. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/...
