no doubt you will all be moaning about a referee LEGITIMATELY adding injury time again. we respect all refs at UNITED and will never use them as an excuse for being THE WEAKER TEAM.

They only respect the ref when it suits them, like on Saturday - more added time until they scored. Wasn't Fergie schitzing when they continued to add on time against Sunderland when it looked as though Sunderland might score? These morons respect no-one, they're not even football fans. They're just programmed "ManU, ManU, ManU". Their day is dimming

Allcock no balls. You'll no doubt be gobbing off on Wednesday night before legging it back to stretford with your tail between your legs. On another point. What is all this Mark Clattenburg rubbish? He is possibly the worst ref I've ever seen yet people are lauding him as one of the best. Its bizarre.
