Should that Nani goal against Spurs have stood?
Our old friend, Mark Homer Catchabung was at it again! After disallowing Piquionne's perfectly legitimate winner at Wolves - we can't have an away team winning can we Mark? - he was at it again today, guaranteeing Man Utd a victory with a surreal goal against Tottenham.
Now I am not having the playing advantage nonsense. Nani clearly handled the ball. It was a free kick to Tottenham, pure and simple. In fact, Catchabung should have booked Nani for simulation and deliberate hand ball, as he took his exaggerated tumble in the hope of making it easy for Man Utd's twelth man to guarantee their victory.
Tell me, would the goal have stood if it had happened at the other end? Not in a million, biillion years! Catchabung would have had his card out in a flash, booking the Tottenham man for taking the dive and, no doubt, touching his forelock to Ferguson whilst he was about it!
Of course it was very funny to see Gomes look a complete arse and to watch 'Arry's 'ead corkscrew from off his shoulders, but leaving rivalry apart, the erratic refereeing of Catchabung is beyond a joke. He should have been stood down after the Wolves game; it's now time for the authorities to give him a long winter break!
