#LUFC - It’s things like these that really piss me off Ken. £31 for a Carling Cup game. Fine, I can handle that. It’s against Manyoo. It’ll sell out even if every season ticket holder decides to boycott.
But an extra quid to “activate my season card”? How do you justify that? You’re not posting a ticket. You’re not printing a ticket. An AUTOMATIC payment gateway is ticking a box on a database so that my swipe card will activate a turnstile.
Nobody’s even looked at it. But that’s another pound. Another pound for every season ticket holder. That’s at least fifteen grand. £15,000 EXTRA, that you’ve got no way of justifying. From just one game.
And why exactly can’t we afford players’ wages, improved contracts or signings?

Scum Fans - Thick or Ignorant?

Are Manyoo fans in our office wilfully thick or cripplingly ignorant?

Nothing ever goes our way…

Office moron on Patrice Evra being able to kick some Chelsea twunt.

Ignoring for a moment the fact that said inexplicable non-penalty is proof that things do go ManUre’s way on a regular basis, I’d like to showcase the following research by usually biased (and always anti-Leeds) website Football365

It is a startling truth - and depressing disparagement of the league’s credibility - that each of United’s five away league victories this term have hinged on an unfathomable error by officialdom: Gary Neville’s escapes at Stoke and West Brom, Rafael’s non-penalty at Blackpool, Wayne Rooney’s hug at Wigan and Mason’s various nonsenses this weekend. How many points would have been collected if Neville had been dismissed at the Britannia and Hawthorns when the scores were level, if Rafael had conceded a penalty with United already trailing 2-0 at Bloomfield Road, if United had to play for 80 minutes at Wigan with ten men, and if Vidic had taken an early bath this weekend?”

Let’s be generous and say they’d have still beaten Wigan and drawn at Stoke. 11 less points for the Scum.

Let’s be even more generous and pretend that if Carragher was sent off for Liverpool (at 2-0 ‘Pool) they’d have scraped an additional point.

So their current league position should be suffering by 10 points due to shit refereeing.

Which would make the league look like this:

Arsenal 59
Scum 56
Citeh 56

Shouldn’t that banner last night have read “[Scum] and City, joined by geography, separated by a string of despicable refereeing decisions?”
