    Was not referring to Glasgow Celtic, but Celtic as in Celtic nations, I think we all have short fuses and are liable to our little moments.

    But they are playing Rugby there Bxing day at the Liberty, think you should find a stream and see what Rugby is before you make a comment like that.
    1) Im English

    2) Im well aware of what Rugby is, my dad was a player for the Combined services and I played it at schoolboy level.

    Thing is in the first half Swansea had a goal that was chalked off because Michu apparently fouled Vidic, though you could say Vidic ran into Michu. Amazing how that isn't being talked about. Before you say he was interfeering, Williams made a block tackle where he had to run arround Van Persie who was in an Offside position, is he interfeering with play? OFC he is as the defender has to run around him. Do I complain about that, no, why? because this stuff evens itself out.

    Pretty much every pundit is an arse, they are generally with few exceptions incapable of working directly in the game. They make howling errors and are subjects of lazy journalisum. At the end of the day pundits are employes by tv companies who want to get viewers, unfortunetly they tend to be biased and poorly informed. In the UK Garry Neville is now a pundt, and he is making the rest of them look like idiots.

    BTW don't start bringing Rugby into it, some of them wouldn't last 2 min on a Rugby pitch. You would be surprised how many players would have played rugby had they chosen too. For example Giggs wouldn't have been in Manchester had it not been for rugby. Going off in a tangent now.

    But they are playing Rugby there Bxing day at the Liberty, think you should find a stream and see what Rugby is before you make a comment like that. Football is a contact sport and its getting too soft. Good tackles are being punished, and bad tackles are now all classified as Career enders. Note Scholes tackle in the game it was a clumsy tackle, it's seen as a Scholes tackle and its ok because he did it, when he started out that wouldn't have been a card when he started out. He would have needed 2 or 3 of them. I am not sure this change is for the better.
    It's not being talked about because it was a clear foul. Michu intentionally blocked Vidic, this is not American Football. The countless replays show he intentionally stopped Vidic from running towards the ball. Please don't tell me you think it wasn't a foul, and you talk about us not being as objective as we say we are...

    Your example of Williams having to run around van Persie can't be used to compare, because van Persie didn't deliberatly block Williams from defending, however Michu did block Vidic intentionally.

    And the challenge on van Persie in the gif image I posted was a foul, Rooney took and borked the free kick, unless your first paragraph is talking about something else.

    Hey, the real sad part was when Wilshere got given a yellow card for a perfect tackle.

    He was talking about the build up to the Michu goal, Van Persie was shielding the ball, Chico grappled him and pulled him to the ground, someone else came and took the ball away, a few passes later the ball was in the net.

    Ah, then I misunderstood, thanks for the explanation and my apologies to MyrddinGwyllt for me misunderstanding your first paragraph.

    Vidic went into Michu, Michu was stupid in that he voved to meet him. What I am talking about is that those decisions can go either way. We had a legitimate goal chalked off against Norwich. Never went on about it as much as you lot consider to be a clear foul 20 odd seconds in the build up to a goal even tho he gets a touch on the ball. it's insane.

    Yet the Swansea fan says something and it must be a clear foul as its against United. Also if someone has to run around someone then they are interfeering with play, if its not deliberate then why does he not move? Seriously, if there is a car parked infront of you in the middle of the road do you drive strait into it? or wait and think fucking twat parked here and drive around him when its safe? Common sense!

    Vidic shouldn't have to run around someone being a clear obstruction though, no one should. It's why the obstruction rule exists.

    Michu knew exactly what he was doing, unfortunately for him, so did Vidic.

    Sneijder to spurs. Twitter went mad after Italian journalist this morning said personal terms agreed.

    No official quotes so refuse to believe it but more I've read into it the more plausible it is.

    You know every post you make there is some silly sly comment that just deters me from further replying to you. It has nothing to do with it being against Manchester United, it could have been against any team for all I care, Michu clearly blocked Vidic and even worse, did it intentionally. I wish I could find a gif or replay of it, as it was as clear as water Michu had the full intent not to let Vidic pass him.

    As for this Norwich incident, I didn't see the match so I have no clue what you're on about.

    Oh and your parked car in the road analogy is just plain stupid. Of course you'd drive around a parked car instead of driving into it. Fact is Michu intentionally blocked Vidic. In your analogy, the parked car forced the car behind him to crash into him. Either way it's a crap analogy.

    That table looks mighty fine to me, just the nature of being a Jack that I am looking more at the gap bewtween us and Wigan and not at top 4, even tho the gap is less. Glass is aways half empty.
