Manchester United have done things which should be taken into consideration, other clubs haven't done these kind of things. Fergie calling Atkinson Unfair, did any manager called a referee unfair after they gave a wrong decision against their team, Howard webb sometimes favoring United is TOTALLY FAIR accod to fergie. You get what you pay for.
