I thought it said in the rules that any game between Spurs and Man Utd must always be refereed by either Clusterfuck or Howard?

United fans aren't happy with this, one even told me that we had won already. Because we all know United are so unlucky with refereeing decisions, especially against a certain North London club that plays in white :duh:

I'm sure we will still get screwed over :cry:
I agree no doubt he will get his instructions if not before the game at the very least at half time.

Wonder why it isn't Webb or Clattenburg though?

Normally its one of those two so the fix is in

Certainly could, he actually should of gave Everton a stone wall looking penalty late on but didn't :grin:
He'll probably make up for it on Sunday then :wink:

It's his first United game since Ferguson heavily criticised him after a game against Chelsea last March. He was supposed to ref their cup game against Liverpool but was injured. Don't know if that's good or bad for us, just glad it's not Webb.

Pretty sure it was, if there's any diddling to be done he's never far away.

Good spot mate, I remember that now....not sure that is good news for us actually, he'll be conscious of that for sure.

True, but we were 2-0 up at the time, and he didn't give us one at 0-0 when Luka was clattered from behind; so he didn't exactly favour us.

Was it Webb who diddled us at the Etihad?
Yep, def. was. I remember yelling at him... Nice and mature :razz: As others have said, I'm very glad it's not him. Something seems to always go pear-shaped when it's him and United.

I like Atkinson; he likes the game to flow and plays advantage more than most referees. Let's hope that he can withstand the pressure from the Utd players. They challenge every decision against them.
