It's pretty sad. Abramovich never gave Di Matteo any respect. Even after he won the double, Abramovich still hesitated to give him the permanent job. Hopefully Di Matteo wins the coach of the year award though. He deserves it.
You do realise i'm talking both ways ffs some decisions against city were rubbish also, everything i say hasn't got to do with united. Do you think he had a good game?
You're probably talking about silent post, .
and no, i think the ref had a terrible game. way too card happy. ramos' wasn't a yellow card, and i don't think zaba's was either. i can't remember many of the others. arbeloa's sending off was harsh, but under those circumstances, already on a yellow, he was asking for trouble. apparently he also clipped aguero's ankle too. i think that it was a soft penalty, but i don't think you can definitely say it wasn't ever a penalty under any circumstances ever. and the ref had no choice to send him off in that circumstance.
i also think we're still in an envious position compared to other clubs. malaga, for example, might be through to the next stage, but can they say, like us, that they will more than likely be there next season? i doubt it. i'd much rather have our base, where we are building towards something, maybe a bit slower than planned, but to keep that base there, than be a flash in the pan make it on the back of one good season kind of club.
