That should've been a penalty.
2-1

How the hell did that go in

If he meant that then it's a bloody great finish

Fair enough, thought you meant 'fact - he never gets charged'.

"The Football Association fines Sir Alex Ferguson £12,000 over comments he made about an official after Manchester United's Premier League game at Spurs."

I'm waiting for the 'The FA love United' 'Oh Fergie always gets away with it' comments again.

Yet again a Man Utd fan brings this up.

Ferguson should be banned for what he said... Shouldn't be able to go around saying the linesman wasn't doing his job!

By duckeggmoon | Permalink | On 20 January 2013 - 21:09 PM
No chance. I'd be surprised if he even got charged.

By chokosc | Permalink | On 20 January 2013 - 21:22 PM
Even if he had a bad game (I haven't seen it) a lot of the managers that mention it get charged. This won't be the first time Ferguson escapes any sort of punishment.

Fact.


By Number 1 | Permalink | On 20 January 2013 - 23:15 PM
Come on - he got away with coming within a few lines of punching the ref at the start of the 2nd half of the Man U-Newcastle game in December and got away with that. Like criticism of the lino is going to register on the FA's radar.


Yep definitely the only people who ever say that are Man United fans.
No I dont get it either, aside from the fact he can actually do it, the fullbacks provide a lot of width in a 4-2-3-1 anyway.

The fact he's got a great understanding with Cleverley and Rooney is important too.

Yeah, the actual important part of the whole move (which if he had actually got his head up would have been a very simple pass). Same as the other gif, gets to the important part where you need that bit of quality, and falls over.


He's 23, composure and final ball will come with time. In one gif he had just sprinted from the edge of his own box and in the other from the half way line so was probably a bit tired which resulted in what it did.

But he's played well on the left so this thing you're banging on about is rubbish anyway. Against Tottenham and Liverpool he was fantastic.

Another example of his play on the wing (just messed up the cutback to Kagawa)

To be honest, it's unlikely two Arsenal fans will have watched as much Welbeck as United fans have so maybe that's why you have these doubts about him. I really think he's going to be absolutely class and he's already a realy good player considering his age.

I like Welbeck, but in an ideal world we need an out-and-out winger on the left hand side - I'd rather see someone like Oxlade-Chamberlain/ Lennon/ Young used there, as opposed to a striker played out of position. Welbeck works hard but doesn't strike me as particularly pacey or as someone who can take on full-backs and beat them in the same way that Walcott can. I think Welbeck's future with England should be as a striker but at the moment I'd probably favour Defoe or Sturridge over him.


All very good but you named 3 right footed players who will cut inside almost every time, therefore not traditional out and out wingers playing from the left.
He won't be a good player on the left?
Yeah he's not what you'd call a natural finisher like Owen for example but he's more than capable and has scored some cracking goals already. Erratic is a good word for him, but consistency will come as he gets older. His record for a player his age is fine, well above average.

I'm sticking in the Welbeck will be very good camp and I'm confident he'll prove me right.
Allardyce's comments were worse to be honest.
I dont think Welbeck needs to improve his finishing, he's just having a bad season in front of goal.

Needs to win something first though.

Not easy when you're a Welsh Tottenham player.
That's gingerist.

You just seem to slag him off at any opportunity, fair enough if you haven't though.

I think Welbeck has proven himself a lot more than Oxlade-Chamberlain, he's had a tough season and only the goals are missing really but he's playing wide a lot and learning a new role and the rest of his game is brilliant.
Don't cry Carroll, come on bro.

First bit was clearly a joke about his England retirement.

Clearly baiting people to click and read so they get hits on the website and it's worked a treat. Trending on twitter and everything.
Yeah Obtuse won't understand the concept of playing games with your mates, it's a waste of time trying to explain it.
A lava lamp? What is this,1997?
Carragher was always a bit over rated as a player I thought, though he was still quite good. Certainly one of the better Premier League era defenders but not as good as often made out. People used to praise his last ditch goal saving tackles but half the time he was only doing it because he'd been beaten for pace or caught out of position. Plenty of own goals and horror tackles but I guess that's what old school English defenders are like.

That said, a one club man, loyal servant etc and he seems like a good guy off the field, certainly a nicer guy than Gerrard and will have more to offer after he's retired.
VP absolutely detests Welbeck and will never say anything positive about him.
Jonas said he got booked for diving, what the fuck was he supposed to think?
Yep, same as Gerrard and a few others have for years. Guess you can't blame clubs wanting to protect their most important players when we're coming towards the business end of the season.
Sounds like a mysterious international injury just like Carrick, Sturridge etc have got. Won't be surprised if they're all fine by weekend.
Apparently the match in England was Liverpool vs Debrecen which finished 1-0 to Liverpool. The fix was that the Debrecen keeper was supposed to concede over 2.5 goals but Liverpool were so shit he didn't get the chance. hahaha
He's not on £125k.
This was good too
