The Dilemma of Being a Manchester United Fan
What happen to this team. Just a month ago, they win every match and being the World Club Champion and Carling Cup Champion. But last 2 weeks, they fall prey to Liverpool and they lost again last saturday to Fulham. Their 7 points lead in the Premier League is reduced to 1 point lead in just 2 games. Its a game which they can win easily but the red card in both games really kills the game. In the match againts Liverpool in Old trafford, red card was shown to United defender, Nemanja Vidic for the tackle which should only carried yellow card. And it became the turning point in that match which United was humiliated 1-4 by Liverpool, their fiercest rival.
Last week, they did it again. Paul Scholes was red carded as early as 26th minute for blocking the ball with hand in penalty box. I have no complain for that coz he should be red carded as that is stricly not allowed in football. But what pissed me off is the red card in the 60th minute shown by referee to Wayne Rooney for protesting the referee by throwing a ball. I know its wrong but referee should just warning him as he is already yellow carded earlier. Instead, the referee just showing him a second yellow card which resulted in the rad card. The referee should understand that United is already behind with 10 man and the protest by Rooney is caused by frustration as he misjudge the foul by Fulham player and accused him. In the end, United plays with 9 man versus 11 man and lose the game 2-0 at Craven Cottage. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL....
