Interesting isn't it? Clattenburg does what he did in the derby and, quite reasonably in my view, Moyes has a real verbal go at him, not once, but on several occasions. Moyes' comments were the nearest I have ever heard to a manager calling a referee corrupt.
And the FA response? Not a peep!
Fergie makes a relatively mundane (for him anway) comment about Webb's officiating in Manure's game against Arsenal (and in many ways a silly comment) and the word is he is being called in by the FA!
I suspect the FA knew they could not defend Clattenburg and would have found it morally indefensible to punish Moyes under the circumstances. Moreover, they knew Moyes had more to say and it would have caused them even more embarrassment. In other words....they shit out! And these scumbags are the primary regulating body of English football?! It doesn't exactly instill one with confidence that the game is in good hands does it?

the ball went down the Utd end, back to Arsenal?s end and then back down the pitch again for Gallas to score.
So hope Fergie is never called as a witness in court. Perhaps he should complain about the Arsenal kick-off after the goal - as that also directly led to the goal.
Alex - Just shut up

Its not right is it? The FA will investigate the refereeing of their game against Arsenal but not ours against Liverpool with Clottenburg [ deliberate mis-spelling].
Something is wrong somewhere. Clattenburg’s refereeing was much worse and I really do think we should still make a stand about this and the Club should still follow it up even if it is a few weeks past. Its all right saying that what’s done is done and the game is gone and the points, but it does matter especially when it is against the Red Shite. We should still make a stand about this and insist that Clattenburg does not referee any of our games because of his bias.

Take people to task over decisions that are totally wrong but favour Liverpoo.....NEVER !!!!

Lastly Tony do not have any sympathy for that weaseling little shitstain Clattenberg, he was just a puppet for gerrard and was so far up the shites arse that there is NO WAY he should be allowed to referee in the top flight again. Never in a liverpool match & NEVER in a match in which we are involved.
15 Posted 06/11/2007 at 11:29:46
What happens if you wrote back with the very simple point - I disagree & believe he may have been coerced into his decisions by his seeming friendship with the captain & players of the opposition forged on a far eastern trip with them as it is blatantly obvious that he is either not up to the levels required for a premiership referee or he was as earlier stated coerced or worse by other influences.
To go without punishment just means that it can go on in other games which would be potentially ruined (by the umpteenth time) by someone who is meant to be unseen yet craves the involvment or press.

Adrians goal for whatever reason, would have been disallowed, and the whole subsequent glory period would never had happened.
Looking back the years of 1984-87 would have been as empty as a red shites head.
And before any bitching i honestlly believe if it had not been for inchy that night howard would have been a goner and the next three years would have never happened.
just a thought as the condemnation of referees and higher authority rears its ugly head once more.

Here is a snippet of the match report
Niemi earned his money with a fine save from Harper’s smart free-kick after Omozusi was harshly booked for barging into Hunt who then forced the keeper into another impressive stop.
Healy finished it in the last minute, arriving on a breakaway to put away Davies’ right-wing cross but Omozusi’s dismissal left a nasty taste especially as he did not even appear to make contact with Shorey for the second yellow card offence.
A second report
Konchesky walked in the previous home game against Derby and this time novice full back Elliot ’Junior’ Omozusi, 18, was harshly dismissed for two yellow-card offences by referee Mark Clattenburg, the second in stoppage-time.

On this site after our game with Wigan, I saw gushing praise for his performance...
He also ref’ed Wigan v Liverpool when Wigan were denied a clear penalty (a foul by guess-who!) and had a "good" goal disallowed for offside
He should clearly NEVER be allowed to ref RS again

Correct me if I am wrong but as I understand it a player sent off for two yellows is shown the second yellow first and then the red. In this case the player was shown the red immediately after the offence and this means a direct sending off and hence the differing consequences.
