    Absolutely disgusting. Any other manager saying that about Foy after the game would get an FA charge. Never seen a ref get bumped down THREE divisions before. Foy wasn't even that bad, only call he got wrong IMO was the Vertonghen shirt pull on Nani.

    Again, disgusting.

    Foy hasn't reffed below PL level for 6 years. Being demoted to the Championship would raise eyebrows but LEAGUE TWO. Fucking hell.

    Foreign refs aren't any better than the refs we have.
  • Deleted user 2 October 2012 18:36:31
    England probably have the best refs in the world. Look around the CL this week and watch some fuckin stinkers.

    Yup, La Liga's refs are woeful, though at least they might not be as influenced by Fergie since they won't understand him
  • Deleted user 2 October 2012 18:41:29
    Would kinda leave the rest of the world a bit short on refs

    Most probably are though. All for the best officials but suspect it's not as easy as that with FIFA lists and so on. My biggest gripe about refs is that they're too close to the players and managers.

    Malle. Fergie has a lot of influence over refs. Not saying it's right, but it's a fact. The sooner that everyone accepts it, the sooner we can all move on.

    Utd get a disproportionate amount of decisions. So what?

    Was that a Freudian slip, is it possible you know something about Mark Halsey that the rest of us dont?

    Man United have been terrible though so far, and Spurs have looked okay despite not getting results.
    More points than any other Prem team in September. :)

    What happens to refs who let teams win at Old Trafford. http://twitter.com/_1lucky/status/253256840543084544/photo/1

    Tch, you only had to look 2 posts up!
  • Deleted user 3 October 2012 09:01:16
    I was thinking back to our game against Stoke last seaosn that Foy referred. Adebayor had a goal dissalowed when he was over a yard onsiude, we had two stonewall penalties turned down and Kaboul got harshly sent off. We lost 2-1.

    It was such a ridiclously poor referreing decision that Redknapp had a (fairly unsual) Graham Poll came out against Foy. It was a pretty high profile event in terms of bad referring and one of the worst I've ever seen.

    Foy got no punishment at all and Harry got a warning from the FA.

    Chris Hoy didn't come out of it that well either.
  • Deleted user 3 October 2012 09:37:39
    Some pretty shit refereeing in our game at Fulhum the other day, surprised they're not on some sort of performance table.

    Yeah, I actually sent Chris Foy a little tweet of congratulations when he won his gold medal this summer.

    On a related note, Martinez has been fined 10k by the FA for these comments.
  • Deleted user 3 October 2012 11:27:35
    On a slightly different note, I thought RvP's comments about wanting more assists yesterday was interesting. I reckon there's a bit of tension between him and Rooney. The question put to him was something like "So the future seems to be Rooney as provider and you as goalscorer" and it made him squirm a bit.

    Meh, wouldn't read too much into it; came across to me that he's just not overly happy with his performances so far. Yes he's scoring goals but I think he wants to contribute more overall.

    He seems to be the kind of player who would be unhappy to "just be a goalscorer" imo. It's the Dutch way, he wants to be an all round player helping the team by creating and scoring.
  • Deleted user 3 October 2012 11:34:00
    Rooney's first word when he was asked the same questions was "No"!

    His next word was Yeah

    It was just a typical case of media pricks searching for a bit of controversy out of nothing. You just know it would have been all "RVP: I'm better than Rooney" this morning if he'd have answered any differently.
