He was falling before the tackle went in.
Clearest dive you'll see in a long time. Lame sugar coating is lame.

Evasive action is moving aside or hurdling over the tackle, falling is neither of these.

Kosta is winding you all up, he knows 100% it was a definite yellow card for simulation.

to be fair, you could argue that it was similar to the foul on an Adelaide united player that everyone complained about last year. He dived before the bloke touched him and everyone then said it should have been a foul anyway.

Now it's man u and not Adelaide u, everything changes. Myself and costa are at least consistent.

Give it up I reckon, you can’t kid a kidder. Liverpool fans done the full spectrum of denials back when senor suarez was a temporary employee.

I think a draw would probably have been a fairer result, but if you can't score, you can't win.

Struck it well, but not on target and Lloris could see it was missing. Good judgement by the keeper :wink:

So we consider a good free kick to be one that doesn't hit the target now?

an inch or two out (sizes you must be familiar with) from 25 odd yards out, then yes i do consider it a great free kick that came agonisingly close to being a superb goal

I think you can see Mourinho's influence on United. They are now a counter attacking team more than a possession keeping team that they were under SAF. Time will tell if that works, or if the fans will like it. I suspect they'll put up with it until the results don't go their way.

It didn't hit the target, might as well have hit the corner flag.

beg to differ here.. last nights game i can agree with but the few prior to that not so..i think this mornings match was too important to not take the three points so he did what he had to do.. even said in the press conference prior to the match he would rather win ugly today than lose points looking good

At least the refs seem to be getting back on United's side. A two footed dive by Rojo goes unpunished and an offside goal by Pogba is given.

I can see Pardew having a bit of a tanty. :lol:

"Happy"? Surely it should have been an expected three points? It was Palace not Barcelona or have the expectations dropped that far already....?

Two things we had confirmed against Liverpool.

If they lose Ibra to injury, they're shiraz and Herrera is a nasty little cheat.
