wow, Ferguson wanted a penalty, Giggs wanted his goal to stand, what the hell? that rivals with some of Mourinho's wackiest comments.

It could have been a penatly - the ball also crossed the line.


Team Captain
Then thank fu<k Graham Poll wasn't in charge, because only a useless wanker would have given a penalty or a goal. Essien's tackle on Giggs was clean and Giggs pushed Cech over the line with his momentum as he slid in. That might have been a goal in 1960 but never in 2007.

The Ref didn't even call a Foul on Giggs on that play, so the goal should stand, yes its a foul but if the ref didnt call the foul then he should count the goal (im not saying i think it shouldt be allowed, im just saying the ref should have at least counted the foul)

Yeah, the ref should have done something because the ball did cross the line, therefore a call has to be made either way and he should have called a foul. But it doesn't matter, either way it was there for Giggs to score easily and he messed it up.


Senior Squad
boring game.

I can see a pattern forming though, top 3 clubs in england, Man u the premiership, Chelsea the fa cup... Liverpool, European maybe?

i just hope the English players representing there clubs do just as well in the internationals... we can dream :funny:

Why? For the sake of some formality so that people on the internet can come to a conclusion easier?

To a goalkeeper, having the ball in your hands is generally a preferable means of distribution than taking a free-kick. When a goalkeeper is fouled and comes out of it holding the ball referees tend to let him play on so as to not disadvantage him - the logical thing to do.
