United falls under the hand of ref,As United thrashed out of FA cup..
How about this game? Did anyone miss out this one.Well you could have missed a good match but the half was shown by this awesome referee Martin Atkinson.For all reasons he was my man of the match.None of the other Pompey players were better than him(Wasn’t he a Portsmouth player).
It was all set up.United were running for treble.Easily cruising through UFEA, running great in EPL and the only other task was FA.Compare to other teams,United again had the toughest draws unlike Chelsea and Liverpool who had play against League one Teams. United starting just as i could think.The first cruel thing came when Distin pushing down Ronaldo in Penalty box and my good old re doesn’t even comment.The foul was surely there and i kept my eyes wide open to check it again.I don’t know how Fergie could have managed his hands out of Atkinson instead throwing him at the replay screen. Minding his first mistake,United kept there thunderous attack at Pompey.The was all firing up and United were obvious better ones out of two.Many times i kept thinking how are they managing it out even after trying almost everything.These are called the bad lucks of life.When u literally push everything in game and still get a sarcastic result out of you. To add more misery on that dreadful day,Van De Sar was substituted for Kuszack.This signifies if he’s having an injury or something.Not clear but not a good sign.But no problems,United went on their with their stronger game and didnt bother with odds.United got some unusal substitutions of 68th minute by bringing Carrick and Hargo in place of Tevez and Anderson.Well this is something dumb what Fergie has kept doing in past replacing on of the good players who were perfect in that situation.Why would substitute your in form striker when u need a goal. However,this wasnt the end.After getting the best for Pompey,Atkinson thought to do something spectacular for which he would go into books of Portsmouth.In 76th minute,Baros came straight into United area after Kranjar guiding him the ball.Kuszack fumbleness did a foul and Baros was brought down in penalty area.With the penalty i may doubt for all reasons,but why the hell a red card.A red card goes out when its a harsh tackle,a last man desperate attempt or anything like that.But why do you get a red card for such thing.Its pathetic to discuss about that and so we move on.Kuzack was sent off and Ferdinand was brought as a keeper.Well though he did jump in right direction it was hard to save a penalty.The game ended with a defeat in FA and certainly a one which we were close to a win. The reason for this year’s FA triumph was that we Chelsea were thrown by Burnley.This wasnt something anyone could expect but yeah the second best team was out.The only threat that i feel to United is Chelsea and their exit did make us an obvious winner.
Do check the funny FA investigation.
