First of all, observe this visual:
That is a dive. Many players dive in the premier league, as well as around the world. Many players win penalties by diving.
This happened at Anfield. Home of Liverpool. Liverpool were down 1-2 to Birmingham. The resulting penalty was converted and they tied the match 2-2.
Yet, Liverpool fans — and indeed, fans of our rivals — will complain about us getting favoured by the refs at Old Trafford.
We also know what happened yesterday at the Bridge, didn’t we?
So what’s the moral of the story: it’s quite possible that all “big four” clubs get favourable decisions from the refs when they play at home.
So next time, think of this — and indeed, yesterday — when someone cries bloody murder at Old Trafford.
That is all.
