Manchester United the victim of Martin Atkinson, bias referee
March 8, 2008 10:23pm CST
In the FA quarter-final match last, Manchester United was denied 3 times penalties by the referee, Martin Atkinson and then gave Portsmounth a winning game by allowing the controversial penalty. To me this is an insult to the FA of England referee and the blunder shouldn't be that obvious. Imagine the whole world are watching and all they targetted will be the English poor referee. No wonder Sepp Blater used to commented on the quality of the referee in England. Shame on English referee.

Luck! Something that cannot be predicted and asked for customization base on our requirement. But in a competetive world at the moment, we need more than luck to strive for success. So, we are to defeat Derby and climb to the top of BPL and stay there FOREVER!!! Man Utd looks likely to hand Ben Foster his debut in 1st team against the Derby as Van Der Saar still suffering the groin injury while Kuszchak facing an automatic suspension!!!

Hi hanybontang. We have the right to be to judge the referee or the players and give comment. If nobody correct the referee for being so unprofessional, the referee will think they are going the right thing. Now Ferguson is in hot soup for "correcting" the bias and poor referee but someone has to do that. I'm behind Ferguson. To me luck is more on the teams but the referee should be neutral in judging and controlling the game. Thanks for your comment.

Hi Syukran. The whole world is watching the blunder and bias referee. It is a shame to note that the English referee is one of the worse in the world. There should be a panel to assess the referees in the English League in every match and in order to improve the standard of referee in England. The referees are suppose to control the game and should not take side of any tearm or club.
