Yesterday's Manchester United vs Chelsea game was not an epic but we did witness a fierce competitive game. Once again questions are being raised about the officials. With certain SAF blaming the referee for the goal. He has again gone lengths pointing finger at the refs. Wayne Rooney was also seen talking about a 12 men team. The whole EPL  and Manchester United are becoming a drama queen. It is a shame. Its not about a day, it happens every week and every season.

It almost seems like it is a crime to beat Manchester United. People, FA, officials all are scared if a team comes close to beat Manchester United. Where is SAF when there are innumerable "Old Trafford" penalties, plethora of "Manchester United" decisions?

We don't have to go back too far in our memory lane. What about yesterday? What about our "karate kid" Johny Evans. Johny Evans high kick on Drogba's chest would make Bruce Lee proud in heaven. After all he is carrying his legacy. Decision - Drogba gets a yellow card. Its hilarious! I am not a big fan of Drogba, the cry baby. He is a man mountain who falls like, lighting has struck him every time someone snoozes nearby. But this time, he was unlucky. Our "karate kid" showed he can kick on ground too, by kicking Carvalho (though I admit it was Carvalho's fault). In retrospective I feel, Johny Evans missed his chance. He could have shot someone yesterday and may be, would have got away with the second yellow card. Same about Fletcher.

I am not a Chelsea supporter. I like or hate Manchester United as much as Chelsea. More of a neutral guy. But its a shame how Manchester United are always the beneficiary of decisions and what a sore loser they are. For once I am happy Chelsea won and I am happy the referee did not play until Manchester United equalizes.

After watching Johny Evans yesterday, I can only think, its good FA is not taking care of law and order or United Kingdom. Else, you can get away with a crime, as long as you are wearing a Manchester United shirt. Its a shame.
