GNev/Scholesy kiss

Dalglish and Benitez tell us some fachts about Fergie

Sir Alex Ferguson's belligerent attitude towards referees has been attacked by two of his greatest rivals, Kenny Dalglish and Rafa Benitez - and the most important man in world football, Sepp Blatter.

On the morning of Manchester United's crucial visit to Anfield to face their fiercest rivals, Liverpool manager Dalglish and former boss Benitez have called for the authorities to act against managers who consistently criticise referees.

Ferguson's frequent attacks on officials fly in the face of the FA's Respect campaign, which urges managers to support referees and Dalglish and Benitez have called on the FA not to hold back in punishing those who breach the spirit of the campaign.

So Dalglish and Rafa tag teaming ... I guess someone forgot to invite Hodgson.

While I agree some of Sir Alex's comments can be deserving of a fine, there are others that don't and I also agree with his principle not to talk to the BBC too

Ain't about how fast I get there, ain't about what's waiting on the other side

Jamie Carragher's tackle on Nani, or Sky sports commentators are rude bitches.

We deserved to lose today, no doubt. Congratulations to Liverpool for their win. However, there were multiple bitchfights & many horrendous mistakes that puts questions to both sides.

1. Carragher's challenge on Nani

Collapse )

From EPL Talk: In Sunday’s massive match between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield, Jamie Carragher committed a high tackle against Nani in the 44th minute that resulted in the Portugese player going to ground and Carragher being awarded a yellow card. But in images published in the last hour, we can now take a closer look at how damaging the tackle was.



2. Rodriguez's challenge on Rafael (8:20, 48') -- Maxi Rodriguez goes in studs-up at Rafael Da Silva's thigh.

3. Rafael's challenge on Lucas (8:22, 48') -- An overall bad challenge from frustration retaliating to the earlier tackle on him. Should've been sent off.

4. Suarez "challenging" Rafael -- Suarez yanks on Rafael's hair.

Collapse )

At the end, Carragher did wait around to apologize to Nani for what is obviously a terrible tackle.

But here's the real question: Just because people apologize afterward, does that mean it's okay to make the challenge in the first place? & ultimately, do players have control over how/where they make their tackle?

OT: Also, couldn't find the tag for Rafael. IDK if it's under a twins tag or whatnot.
