Dem have rules to follow nothing to do with being no robot, doh talk shit.  He tackle from behind and brought the man down.  Yeah he get ball but that don't entitle yuh to take out the player in de process.

He got the ball first before bringing down Fabregas. from the front angle it showed Fletcher getting the ball first before he brought him down.


   look at where the referee was in relation to the play before allyuh start cryin' about the call, please.

they showed u a back view from the ref angle. there was clearly a deviation on the ball with Fletchers tackle b4 he took down the other player.
Say what, if arsenal didnt get the call, men woulda be talking real shit bout Utd getting all the decisions. the red hurt though

The better team won over both legs. I really feel for Gibbs and then Alumina should have done better. The game was over then.

Regardless of the deviation, you cannot go through a player to play the ball.  Fletcher practically went through the man.......besides, on ESPN right now, Shaka and the other guy saying the same thing I've been tellin y'all.....the only member of the panel to DECIDEDLY NOT call it a foul.....is the Englishman.  I ain't surprised.

I don't even think it should have any argument whether it's a foul at all.  Man who arguing that on straight up bullshit.  The card was a bit harsh but in all fairness referees aren't allowed any leeway in making that call.  He have to follow the letter of the law and despite Fletcher initial touch, if he don't clip Cesc he still has a chance with his right foot to poke it past Van Der Sar.  Therefore it's a red card infraction.

Terrible red card decision takes the shine off a fantastic away performance... Fletcher got to the ball first .. fine give a penalty but to give a guy a red card when his side are on the way to rome and it was a good tackle is complete utter bullshit

UEFA should reverse the decision but they wont because we are English and we are Manchester United


Anyway....we are back in the Final and will win it for Fletch

Almunia work real hard but for a while in that 2nd half it was men against boys. United toy with Arsenal and the 3rd goal was clinical.

I know Ronaldo (the big game choker?) will get no credit on here but he show why he is such a valuable player. He hold the attention of Arsenal defense whole night and make space for Rooney, Tevez and Anderson becuase you have to respect his power, pace and ability in front of goal.

Big games for Fletcher, Park and O'Shea. Yuh can't get better squad players than that. Rooney, Vidic and Anderson just like to win EVERYTHING. A real good performance by the whole team but Arsenal were abit of a joke. I surprised that Wenger was so bullish before the game guaranteeing a good Arsenal performance.

Two CL finals in consecutive years, possibly three straight league titles, all after Fergie get write off when Chelsea was winning. Have to give the old man credit, he know how to manage a football side.

  Yuh ain't lie.  the facts are (1) you can possibly argue that Fabregas did not have a goalscoring opportunity....possibly.  But yuh can't argue that (2) he was the last defender.  How them manu fans could want to argue that call and talk about that peter pan touch on the ball is beyond me.  Some of them men are sadly, definitely immature and beyond reason.

It was hurtful to watch this game.  Congrats to Man U you were the better team.  I too feel sorry for Gibbs but it was his 2nd time falling in the box in a critical situation (he did it in Old Trafford as well).  Almunia did well but that 2nd goal should have been saved - and that was a soft call - wuss a$$ ref!!

Anyhow, it was not the ref to blame for our performance. Wenger HAS to make changes and get some better defenders and midfielders.  As one of the forumities said, "There is no substitute for experience."

ps..Flecther did not deserve de red card fuh de tackle.

  Yuh know, JDB, even for me, as much as ah hate de lil' boy, I have to give cronaldo the man-of-the-match for this game.  That free kick was an absolute heart breaker (even though arsenal left their hearts at home today) and he kept the entire defense on their heels whole game.  The second goal he scored was a classic counter attacking run that you are so used to seein manu put together against the bottonm tier EPL teams so often.  It wasn't supposed to mak arsenal defenders look so bad.

  Small Mag.....you can go on FIFA website and read up on all the rules, jed.  This call was not a referee's error, and even if it were a call worthy of some type of an appeal (amybe the sentimental clause you're looking for) , UEFA would not overturn it.  It was a good call by the ref.

So doh overturn it because it tie de referees hands and possibly can penalize players uneceassarily, but do it so as to not crush ManUre fans souls  :rotfl:

Aye allyuh good yes.  I agree they should allow appeals doh lol

Chow and JDB I with allyuh CR did a very good job and was the most dangerous man on the pitch.  Like him or not he is effective and causes nightmares for defenders and opposing managers alike.

Hard luck dey Gibbs, hope he come back stronger. Well done United, played like a team who knows how to win. The team with the best players won. Arsenal will only win moral victories not trophies if they keep waiting for their 'young' players to mature and in the mean time they will either move on or keep gettin hurt.
Fergie killin the opposition with how he set up the side for matches- it helps when the players are very interchangable and all have high football IQs!

ManU..whey sah. Superb performance.

Fletcher is class and didn't carry on with his red card cuz he know he do shit. Big players know you can't tackle from behind, even if you get ball first. How many times you see many come in studs up, get all ball and no man and still collect a yellow. It doh matter..you cna't come in studs up, you can't tackle from behind..it never matters how much ball you iwn first. Refs in England does let man get away with that. But this is Europe fellas. Rules are rules. He get the red or being the last man. Fact is, his side was up 4-0 and had 3 away goals. Just continue to put pressure on the mana nd let Van Der Saar try to handle the rest. Absolutely no need to go through the man. Man is an experienced pro. He know he do stupidness.

C Ronaldo is a big farking player. He is poison and he have funk. I maintain that if he was a Trini we woulda think the man was better than Maradona. lol.

Park Ji Sung  :notworthy: :applause:

ManU show today that they eh giving up day trophy without a fight.

ps. Berabatov is class but he doh belong on that side.  He came on the field today and just did not look like a ManU player. I know he silky smooth and all that, and I know I eh saying nutten scientific, but somewhere in my gut, he just doh seem like he fit in the ManU philosophy
