Thread: We were cheated today

  1. #1

    We were cheated today

    That will go down in the history books that game.

    When you see a set of officials refusing to disallow blatant offside goals or implement the laws of the game that is just not on. Not to mention allowing the Chelsea players to dominate him and tell him what decisions to make.

    Can.understand why the ref did it as he doesn't want to get stick in.the media for a top 6 not winning- whereas he will get a free pass now, but the premier league should take a long look at themselves for allowing this to go,on.

    It was farcical

    We only started getting decisions when they were 2-1 up and he knew that Chelsea would win

    It was so obvious i do question if they were mistakes or part of a deliberate plan today.

    You almost hope that they're cheating on purpose rather than them being THAT bad at their jobs

    What an absolute f*king disgrace. Those decisions will cost our club hundreds of millions, players livelihoods etc. Absolutely disgusting.

    Even him giving them 7 minutes to get the winner. As it happened they only needed about 7 seconds- but i bet it wouldn't have been 7 minutes had they scored before 90

    Any the Sky guy thinks it's one big joke.

    It does make you wonder sometimes. The 'top 6' (or top 4) have so much more money flowing in due to European competitions, and hence so much more money at stake, that it does make you wonder if refs are 'more concerned' about the top 4/6 clubs winning at times.

    I wouldn't usually think of conspiracy theories and all, but when you look into the murky world of agents and how dodgy some deals are when there's big money at stake, why can't refs be 'slightly' corrupt..?

    It’s gross incompetence. It will cost Catdiff big time. Win that game and it’s on for survival but to lose due to useless officiating isn’t on.
    I dont believe they cheated because the tv cameras were there and they would be putting their careers on the line. None of those involved should be reffing at this level again.

    Not only will that result cost us but it could cost Arsenal and Man Utd.
    An absolute disgrace, how can this incompetence carry on?

    To be honest and a bit contrary, no one at all appealed for the offside. Not one player.

    The way he edged backwards and the fact a few players crossed paths meant it was not obvious on first viewing.

    OT - Who was Sky's Man of the Match - had to get out of the house for a few minutes when they equalized and missed the announcement!!

    Pretty sure Morrison did

    Besides, it shouldn't take appeals for officials to be able to do their jobs properly

    Chelsea scored a legitimate second with completely $hite defending from us so scrub the offside goal and we would have got a point.

    Yes, because the offside goal prior to that had absolutely no impact on that, not one bit.

    Chelsea were putting pressure on anyway.

    Can you explain how an offside decision impacts on not being able to cut out a cross or beat Loftus-Cheek to the ball for the header?

    Re: We were cheated today

    We had a point to battle for despite several bad decisions. We failed to deal with a fairly simple cross into the box and conceded a second.

    Butterfly effect.
    We would’ve gone down the other end and put one in the top corner.

    Im not sure. Maybe more sub conscious than conscious but the ref would have known by giving the big decisions to chelsea he would avoid attention.

    Sky thought it was funny.

    BBC 5 live called us brave and and unfortunate cardiff and joked about hearing from neil warnock later.

    Nobody would call it as it was- just imagine the fuss if a ref gave decisions to smaller teams! Couldn't imagine it. The ref today knew that and reffed accordingly.

    We didn't.

    City had a point within grasp after the offside goal but lost that due to bad defending. If we defend that and see the game out then we get a point. We failed to do that.

    Why did we wait until the 80th minute to bring on fresh legs?

    Because a completely different set of actions would have taken place?

    It was different to say the ref v Watford who missed that obvious pen. He was just a bad ref for both sides. I've no bad feeling to that ref.

    Today felt different- not just the big decisions either.
