Just got back from Swansea v Villa, OMFG, we drew 2-2. How it is beyond me. We were loosing in the 85th min, from a contraversial pen. It came from a goaline clearance and no clue how it was given and why a foul wasn't given against the villa player who went down. The free kick that was awarded was infact a foul by their player on ours. For anyone who thinks the standard of officials in the EPL is good, take a look at the clowns we had today.
There were countles late tackles all let go a pen that wasn't a pen, a handball that was inside the area and given as a free kick. As bad as the officials were and as bad as Villa may have been. At least their players had a bit of battle in them. Nothing wrong with it if you can get away with it, shame that we always get officials that are not consistent in their interpritation of the rules. Something that pisses me off no end.
Enough of whinning about other parties, how this game was not 8,9 or even 10 nill is a mystery, and we almost lost it. I think by 15min gone we had Scored a 1 on 1, missed another 1v1 and these were the 1v1 where you are pretty much alone from the half way line. We hit the inside of the post 2 times, 2 open goals, and god knows how many other chances. It looked like a potential blood bath. Up untill the 42nd min we completely bossed it and tore villa apart being as wastefull as it gets. Then came a huge sucker punch. Ball over top, and Wiseman or whatever his name is with a great finish.
2nd half was a little bit more even but still think we dominated. Officials have got to do more to apply the law and protect teams that do not apply dirty tactics. Although I have to be honest there is nothing wrong with a bit of fight. I just can't understand how a certain tackle is a foul and a similar tacle is let go because there were 1 or 2 worse tacles in the build up, or more physical tackles the.
Simply, I am pissed, pissed with my team, pissed with the ref, and pissed with the result. Oh and for you Michu fantasy fanboys he was fucking shit today.
