    Well he doesn't make that challenge if he's already on a yellow.

    That's how I feel. Still frustrating that United couldn't tie it.

    The ref is particularly chunky for a ref....

    True, but that would still be an advantage for us if he'd been playing with a yellow the past 20min which he should have been.

    It's amazing how bad Moss is at refereeing on the counter. His sense of when to play advantage and what's deserving of a card is amateur level at best.

    It's probably because he's a fatso who can't keep up with play.

    That run was first good thing Denis Suarez did so far. Start him vs. Rennes

    lmao Moss gave that as a goal kick despite it clearly coming off Fred.

    He's so bad :laugh:

    Maitland-Niles doing a great job defensively the last 10ish minutes.

    As I said after Liverpool-Crystal Palace, it wasn't bias that helped Liverpool, it was that the ref is a fat **** who can't keep up with play and probably the worst in any big league.

    The league would be better off with a computer officiating his matches.

    Even beyond him being fat and not being able to keep up with play, what is and isn't a foul changes dramatically over the course of the game. He veers back and forth from giving a bunch of soft fouls to basically letting them play rugby and back.

    Obviously a bad call hurt United today, but I can also point out like 7 fouls in the last ~10 minutes that United players committed that weren't given despite similar ones being given earlier.

    You'd probably be better with a live twitter poll officiating the matches.

    I think this may have something to do with him being fat as well. Letting them play rugby when he isn't tired and soft fouls when he needs to catch his breath. It's absolutely insane this man is an official.

    The penalty there was absolutely no chance he could ever see it even if there was a foul committed (which there wasn't). He's at an angle behind Fred and quite a few yards away.

    After two matches of refs robbing us @Spurs + Rennes, it was nice to be on the opposite end of it.

    Referees are terrible.

    I mean it is not as bad as those saying Karius was better than Leno, but I digress...

    Personally really like Ramsey and wanted him to follow Chambo. He's 10x the player Can is.

    Teams are now into the final quarter of the season, looks like a real race for 3-6.

    You’d think, but I was told recently that with ManU’s form, there’s no way Arsenal could do better than them.

    Loved Rashford's pass through to Lukaku in the 2nd half. Threaded it through a few Arsenal players. Other than that he wasn't great. Might need a rest.

    Shaw was good again, nice cross for Lukaku. Probably should have had another brace.

    Martial is needed. Pogba looked rusty.

    Interesting how two of the three promoted teams are going straight back down. Wolves spent big and sit 7th!

    Man United were much better than what the scoreline said, but Arsenal could've put in a couple as well for a more final score of 4-2. Penalty on United was weak, but based on the view that Moss had, Fred stupidly and clumsy put himself in that situation. Arsenal have 5 of their last 8 games on the road, but none of them are against top 6 sides - should be a very interesting situation. I honestly cannot believe how unbeatable we are at the Emirates, we're better than Barca at Camp Nou.

    Also Jimenez absolutely wrecked Kante the entire match, what a wonderful player for Wolves.
