Yup, ref knows 100% keeper is on the ground and no way he could've seen Fred's foul. The piece of shit did it on purpose. We have lost these kind of advantages even at our home ground which is sad. Imagine if this was klopp at An field, ref blows the whistle 100%Atkinson was looking at DeGea on the ground and facing his goal when the ball was cleared out of the penalty area. He should have blown the whistle right then. It doesn't matter if DeGea was fouled, clipped by a teammate, or did it himself. Once that passage of play is done, ball 20 feet in the air, he should have whistled to a stop. Fred trod on DeGea's achilles tendon, which burns, and he immediately went down.
Both "Robbies" on the USA broadcast, as well as Graeme LeSaux and Arlo White, are blatantly anti-United. Clowns.
Well done for the Bruno goal.
Excellent tackle by McTominay. Remember when Arsenal used to shit their pants when the physicality got too much? Bringing the thunder back, well done, son.
This Arsenal team is nothing. We need to get more adventurous in the final third, with all that possession.
I agree.FFS the Arsenal was properly allowed. Had De Gea suffered a suspected head injury from his own player then play has to stop. Had an Arsenal player stamped De Gea then the goal is properly disallowed. End of.
Remember him under Jose and LVG? He was running and pressing all day.Rashford's complete and utter disinterest is even more amazing - when you remember that the new manager, renowned for getting his players to work hard and press, is sat in the stand watching.
That's a load of nonsense. There would be nothing to stop one of our defenders standing on the 'keepers foot whenever the opposition are in a dangerous position. It makes no sense. There was nothing wrong with De Gea, he could've easily got back up and saved that shot, but he chose to play for a freekick and it backfired.Once a keeper is down injured the ref should be stopping the game, regardless of how the injury occurred, you can't allow a game to go on with the keeper immobilised. If he thinks the keeper's simulating then he can book him but there's absolutely no reason to allow the play to progress to the point where a goal is scored and now he can't do anything about it because it was his teammate so a foul can't be called, inept from the ref.
I like De Gea but that goal was all on him. People here are blaming Fred but looking at the replay what did he really do to cause De Gea to stay down so long? It appears to me De Gea thought he was touched by an opposition player and stayed down. IdioticWe should be 1-0 .
Instead because of that asshole De Gea we are even.
Play to the whistle FFS
He didn't know and neither did our players. De Gea actually went down once everyone had turned their backs to the goal. I guess he thought the danger was clear.Once a keeper is down injured the ref should be stopping the game, regardless of how the injury occurred, you can't allow a game to go on with the keeper immobilised. If he thinks the keeper's simulating then he can book him but there's absolutely no reason to allow the play to progress to the point where a goal is scored and now he can't do anything about it because it was his teammate so a foul can't be called, inept from the ref.
That's not the same situation. Playing to the whistle.me arse - you are always told to play to the whistle.
The prick did the right thing to stick it in the goal.
First up, if it actually tears his achilles like that, he's off, not carrying on two minutes later.Watch any challenge on the Achilles. Everybody goes down the same way, like a sack of shit.
even if he gets up he isn’t diving to save it
I would add Ronaldo trying to score from ridiculous positions instead of looking round.My Thoughts:
Team is an absolute mess
- De Gea is a pussy as usual
- Fred's awful regardless of the assist
- Nice play by Sancho for the goal.
- McTominay Anonymous as usual. Awful trait for a Midfielder.
- Rashford Anonymous too.
- Should be playing Amad or Greenwood over him.
- May as well play VDB instead of either Fred or McTominay. He can't be worse.
He went down because he was in pain.Goalkeepers have a pretty important job to do mate. And going down and trusting the ref to be sympathetic is cowardly.
He is soft, it’s been a pattern for years. It’s some of the most pathetic play I’ve seen on a pitch. To see him up standing seconds later, disgusting.
