The Somewhat Normal One

Seeing this again Makes me twice as pissed
For anyone who still thinks Shelvey was right to be sent off, and that it was a two footed lunge;
Wrong player got sent off. Had Shelvey's leg not been off the ground it would have been shawcross vs ramsey part 2. Shelvey didn't even go in with his studs showing, it was the side of his foot.
Awful, awful refereeing.
Never mind. Seeing the above image, I retract my statement.If he hadn't lunged for that ball he'd have had 40,000 people on his back, along with his manager and team mates. Pressing high and hard is what we do and Shelvey was doing it really well.
Ferguson and Halsey had to do something as we were running away with it in the first half.
Quite agree, sick and fed up getting shafted by certain referee's against certain clubs. Always the same, you can pick the games you might as well not turn up to. Fifa and their fair play.I just don't know anymore guys.
Honestly, I'm an honest football supporter above all else.
LFC just cannot catch a break. I'm not one for hard-luck stories or blaming refs, but where does this all stop?
And 5 minutes of extra time? What genius cacluated that?
2 points from 5 games.
Five if you count in RVP making the exact strong challenge like Shelvey in the first half, but only getting a yellow. Where is the consistency in this, apart systematically favouring the mancs?Four if you count not giving Evans a card at the same time as Shelvey.
I agree with that.We are cursed by some obscure forces, I'm now sure of it. This, or the FA definitely have decided to get this club's head as a decoration in their hunting trophies room.
i though rvp challenge was more of a sending off,studs up.Five if you count in RVP making the exact strong challenge like Shelvey in the firdt half, but only getting a yellow. Where is the consistency in this, apart systematically favouring the mancs?
I'll say it again: this man is a full-time ref, a professional. He knew exactly what he was doing. These weren't errors or mistakes, but intentional decisions in order to harm us and give the mancs the three points.
