He's refereeing in League 2 at the weekend.
Clattenburg should follow after last night
Obviously, as Ferguson is head of the FA.
He was fantastic at the Olympics.
One of the comments on the story claims that Foy (and Clattenberg) hasn't refereed at Old Trafford since reffing a defeat, now surely they noticed that Foy refereed our defeat to spurs at the weekend? So they either didn't notice that he had been back at OT since the last time they reffered too, or they think theres some big conspiracy because he hasn't been to referee a game at OT since saturday, no wonder these people dont get taken seriously
don't patronise the feckers
getting silly now with the Sporting Life also making insinuations
Spurs fans did well in putting pressure on him, every decision they went crazy, pathetic fans but it worked as Foy wasn't strong enough and never gave us the clear pen.
fecking wank today.
Parker somehow got away with a dive/deliberate handball combo (and dived before that and got away with that too).
Spurs fans are gimps, mind.
They got a lot of soft decisions today. I don't even want to talk about the penalty incident
That website that analysed ref decisions found that he 'sided with us' more than any other ref last season. So I can't dislike him too much.
And he's not Atkinson or Dean, so has that going for him.
Tottenham's constant whining and bitching proved key as referee didn't want to upset them.
Also, why wasn't Parker booked for deliberate handball?
Rooney pen was clear
He was just a bit shit today, gave fouls for nothing and missed obvious ones.
The pen incident aside we can't really say he favoured Spurs though, I remember two obvious fouls by Kagawa that weren't given.
Hope he's back in League 2 again.
That one annoys me as much as the penalties, it was so obvious for both Foy and the linesman. It was a huge chance.
That was really weird. Unless he decided to give a foul for something else, that is a really simple decision.
some big calls this season have not gone our way. among them some not just wrong, but horrible horrible decisions.
I didn't think he was that bad today. Yes, he got the penalty incident wrong, but that's the linesman's job, not Foy's.
He could have carded that diving bastard Parker for a start
not when one angle shows foy staring right at it and he made some inexplicable calls today, soft free kick after soft free kick for tottenham once the fans got on his back.
also do they realise they cant "ironically cheer" a decision when they do it twenty five times in one half?
Eh? How on earth can Foy not give that Penalty. He is perfecly positioned to see the contact (which was fecking massive) and the fact that he got nothing on the ball.
Absolutely disgraceful that Foy and the linesman couldn't get that decision right between them when they were both in such briliant positions. They didn't even speak about it FFS.
Probably should have given us a penalty. Probably would have had it been OT.
I doubt it, he was the ref in september against Spurs, right? And did we get a pen then? No. We should have had two.
now lets pretend it was a tottenham player that didnt get it at old trafford. there'd be a government enquiry
He let the crowd influence him when the Spurs fans for some reason felt everything was going against them when in actual fact they were getting everything go for them.
Ferguson has just said that that's the lino that didn't rule out Drogba's 400 yard offside goal against us.
Not a United fan, obviously.
Is he, like Foy, from Merseyside?
How he didn't give that penalty is beyond me.
Also, if you pick up the ball when play has not been stopped, how is that not 'DELIBERATE feckING HANDBALL' you utter cock.
Spurs fans did a great job on him today. What about that offside that was invented at the end instead of a foul to us?
This was weird. Is it normal to have the same ref for a reverse fixture in the same season?
Hope Fergie rips them a new one.
They showed a replay of it from behind. It showed Foy looking directly at the incident with nothing in his way.
Also the first booking on Carrick after 2 or 3 worse fouls moments before lol laughable
Was that the one with Welbeck?
There was also a golden opportunity at the start where I think Welbeck was in acres of space running down the right wing and the Spurs defender tripped over - foul given. Another poor refereeing performance against us this season.
That was one of the things I did manage to get on a decent stream. Never a foul.
Aye, and that ultimately lead to the goal.
That was the worst moment of the game for him, but in truth I though Spurs could feel hard done by. In the first 60 minutes he missed several of our fouls whilst penalised Spurs in advanced areas.
Separate names with a comma.
