This is absolutely no surprise whatsoever......

“it is understood Guardiola left the meeting feeling as though the referees’ chief had merely paid lip services to his complaints.”

I never for one moment felt that anything directly constructive would emerge from the meeting BUT it has kept the issue out there just as Maureen’s ‘breath of wind’ comments lodged in the mind some of officials. Maybe this will do the same by drawing attention to just how dreadful the tackles were and how poor the referee’s responses were.

A proper referee

Pierluigi Collina

"We need to have players playing, so they must be protected on the field.

"We do not want situations where a player's future is put in doubt because of serious injury caused by a challenge, whether it is intentional, or is unintentional and the player making the challenge is taking a risk of causing injury."

Rag bias in all its glory. Irrefutable evidence in that vid.

So you could argue the standard has improved slightly since then !!!! Fergie must have had a few refs on his payroll.

Did you listen to the the commentary? Riley awarding Shrek a penalty for that dive meant he had awarded Utd 7 penalties in a row. This man is now head of PGMOL, you couldn't make it up.

They should have noticed the trend towards City players and I am not asking for a yellow, but they should look at reviewing certain tackles even if the ref has seen them and he should be able to change the card on reflection.

This of course only benefits the Clubs after the event and not the Club who were subject of thuggery, harsh I know.
