Carrick should have been wearing clownshoes most of the match. And I am pretty sure no one will ever find Rafael's body where Fergie hides it. What a fucking moron.

Carrick was the main culprit god he was terrible, rafael was playing out of his skin  and i reckon he didn deserve the second yellow was totally innocuos challenge, ref bottled it

His first yellow was totally and completely his own petulant fault. The 2nd was soft, but having already taken the first he can't make that kind of challenge. He played very well going forward but wasn't a lot of help in his own half, at least that I noticed.

His first yeh no question, but the second was ridiculous. Rafael momentarily tugged Ribery's shoulder to try and gain ground on him and then let go, in turn Ribery made an angry and petulant lunge into the young guy and then called foul play, ref was easily duped and the whole gameplan went out the window thanks to the moment of insanity. All I can be thankful for is we would likely have been trounced by Barca and Robbens goal was in fact a screamer.

But I'm gutted, having been robbed by the officials in the two most important games of the season so far.

He pulled on Ribery's shoulder from behind, impeding his advancement of the play. Gary Neville's evil uglier twin made a meal out of it, but Rafael can't allow the question to be asked of the official. He was all over the map on calls all day long, and you can't give him the opportunity to show you another yellow. I think it was a terribly soft call, but I think Rafael's judgment was worse than the call.

I don't think the official necessarily cost them the game. The Chelsea game, on the other hand...Jesus. How Mike Dean isn't busted down to reffing in the park by now is beyond me. The guy is fucking clueless.

Fake edit- went to double check that it was in fact Dean as I remembered, and found this. So he is on the way to the park, it seems. One game too late  Mob

Bullshit, you don't get cards for tugging a players shoulder on the half way line. If you did every game would finish with five players on each team. If he was persistently doing it, which he wasn't, ref has a quiet word and gives a warning doesn't just jump to his pocket.

I reckon what happened is the ref went to book him and then realised after it was his second so had to send him off.

I see people booked for that all the time, although it is usually a hell of a lot closer to the goal. However, it looked more like the Bayern players railroaded the ref into the card- he didn't whip it out initially. That is my biggest complaint. That and the fact that Rafael can't let himself be in that position. He was straying too far forward, and was desperate to get back in time (so we didn't have to watch Carrick get abused in the area in his place again  Ohhhhh, I see. ).

I agree that is was soft and that the yellow was way overboard, but Rafael has his share of the blame, both for his utter stupidity in the first half (he was absolutely right that he was fouled, but he can't retaliate), and for not bring more cautious after being cautioned  Ohhhhh, I see. . You see refs all over look past relatively minor offfenses when someone has been booked, because sending someone off (especially with 35 minutes left in the game!) is a huge, game-changing event, and MOST refs want to be sure they are completely justified.

Now- how do we get Chelsea to spit the bit at this late stage?

You're right though Rafael is overexuberant and inexperienced. He likes to try and nip in and intercept passes, which leaves him trailing back if he fails, he generally has the pace to get away with it but not against Ribery or similar. He's young and he has huge potential I don't think he should be too down on himself, he played a great game up til then which I guess is why I feel sorry for him.

Now- how do we get Chelsea to spit the bit at this late stage?

We don't we're fucked, I reckon no trophies for us this season Ohhhhh, I see.

What really fucked us up this season was the Fulham & Villa losses and the glut of defenders we had injured around that time, I knew that would come back to haunt us.

But we do have some exciting prospects to look forward to next season. Nani & Fletcher are getting better all the time, Rafael's a promising talent. Valencia was man of the match against Bayern, De Michelis couldn't cope and Rooney is proving he's better than Ronaldo up front. Our glaring weakness is a world class midfielder, Gibson maybe? who knows. I reckon we need to sign someone who can play in the hole behind Rooney and deliver, I've totally lost faith in Berbatov (I guess Sigil was right, yes you can say I told you so now).

Nani is starting to grow on me. He has been infuriating for years, but all his little tricks and feints are starting to pay off. His first goal was just sick. As for Valencia- why do defenders not just take away his right foot? He fakes left, fakes left, fakes left and goes right. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. and still gets away with it.

As for the rest of midfield, maybe Hargreaves?  Ohhhhh, I see.

I wish the Glazers would fuck off so the club could get its debt under control and be in a position to buy a couple of players.

I've always reckoned Nani deserved a chance, after all Ronaldo was equally infuriating for his first two seasons. But we'll see if he can maintain it, he's got amazing ability.

As for Valencia- why do defenders not just take away his right foot? He fakes left, fakes left, fakes left and goes right. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. and still gets away with it.

Haha, too true awesome, for real

EDIT: He has always reminded me of Andrej Kanchelskis, now I have figured out why. If my memory serves me he used to do the same thing.

I'll trade you Hicks and Gillette for the Glazers. World class assholes they are, but at least they had the balls to pay for a second striker (and a third in Owen) when Rooney goes down, and that's with like 3 times the debt Liverpool has.

I officially hate Tom Hicks.

He wants 3 times what they paid for Liverpool, despite saddling the club with huge debts, half-assing the transfers, not even breaking ground on the stadium and leashing the club's fortunes to a manager who has likely led them out of Europe and is what, 3-4 years removed from any silverware whatsoever? What a cunt.

Liverpool could not have looked more comatose against West Ham last night if they'd been dosed with Roofies and dropped from a very great height. They were absolutely catatonic - yet still managed to beat West Ham 3-0. The game was fucking boring. West Ham camped at the 50-yard line and any service into the box could have been delivered better by a paraplegic. How the fuck is West Ham not wallowing the mire with Pompey? Oh right, because the management position at Hull apparently renders perfectly sane managers with temporary retardation that causes them to think guys like Craig Fagan are automatic first 11 picks.

If Liverpool can't muster any more enthusiasm than they showed last night on Thursday, it's going to be a long two-leg affair.

At this point, they HAVE to beat Chelsea and everyone else they play to even have the faintest glimmer at 4th. Even if they do, I don't think they'll get 4th because I don't see Spurs and City losing enough of their remaining games. And without Torres for the rest of the season, I don't think we can beat Fulham, Hamburg or Atletico Madrid to win UEFA Cup. N'gog certainly has some potential, but no way do I have any confidence he can score consistently.

Luckily for us Spurs didn't play as well as they have been playing of late, Bale was definitely out of sorts left back and made more of an impact when pushed forward. Looking at the bench though Spurs have a pretty decent squad for a change, puts Liverpools to shame.

That was a massive victory for United and there is an outside chance we can nick this now, although I think it's unlikely still. The ref was fairly decent today for a change and I think both penalties shouts were spot on. On a sidenote if John Terry played for Spurs and had committed them, they wouldn't have been given.

Fucking worthless Liverpool better at least tie at Anfield versus Chelsea.

Hull going down, only 1 goal scored, straight red to Jozy for pulling a Zizzou?  Jesus, what a fucking mess and not what I prayed we would see from him this season going into the World Cup.

I really want to watch the Citeh v Spurs game, hope its winner gets fourth place though Citeh can't sleep on the AV game on Wednesday.

Altidore headbutted a guy, though it didn't look like he was really trying to headbutt so much as he lost control. Having seen him play with Hull a number of times, his performance hasn't been bad - he's had fuckall for service and the team around him has been crap. Phil Brown insisted on playing complete duds all season - Dowie didn't do much better. The game with Sunderland today was just fucking awful. Sunderland should have won by at least 3 goals, Bullard couldn't complete a pass or make a penalty shot. Horrible football.

No that was well deserved. They played like total shit, especially in the 2nd half. Of course they had like 5 regular starters on the bench, but still...

I was referring to the incredibly soft penalty given with 30 seconds to go in stoppage time from a referee who would have been in a better position to make the call if he was season ticket holder.

Liverpool  Facepalm Can't even make a good go at trying to beat fucking Chelsea at home. I quit watching after the second goal, it was just too fucking painful. I'll be seriously debating whether to watch next week's absolutely meaningless game against Hull. And now Rafa is sort of making rumblings that he's going to leave for the same reason he left Valencia, the owners wouldn't let him buy the players he wants.

Fuck off. Really, just fuck off to Juve or wherever they will put up with your prima donna bullshit. Yes, Hicks and Gillette are douchebags who have ran the club into idiotic levels of debt for no good result at all and now expect to make double the profit they paid for the fucking club. You spent 20 million pounds on a guy you refused to start for most of the season. You refused to buy backup strikers for a star you had to know would get hurt - fuck look at a club like Wigan or Hull. These guys got good strikers on loan or on the cheap. You could have taken the 20 million you spent on Aquilani and bought a decent 2nd striker and a creative midfielder and had change for tea. It's entirely your fault that you had no depth in defense or up front or the wings for that matter. It's also not their fault that you refuse to play young players like Pacheco when your injuries mount. He can't be any fucking worse than Ryan Bobbley or Donkey Legs Leiva. I could write a novel on what went wrong with this season, and most every problem can be laid at the Spanish cunt's feet.
