Wow what another incredible howler tonight at anfield , the award of a penalty the first on on lallana, i realise the old saying ( look in tommorrow;s paper ) IF that was a penalty then all i can say is god help us when they start using the video replays, plus it was that ref who since christmas has made more wrong decisions than right ones .

First he should have booked LALLANA for the funniest of wriggle type dives iv'e seen for a long time ,then restart with a free kick to Everton but he let it go but thats sport for you .
Across at OLD TRAFFORD did not see it but by all accounts united had all the possession but had to wait until 84 minutes , then the other from the big lad LAKUKU ON 90 MINS so both REDS are in the bag for the 4th round . BUT have to say the standards of refereeing does appear to be degenerating ,what you think??????

Only saw the first half as up early on days today GB. However, Holgate definitely manhandled Lallana and prevented him from getting to the ball, his dive was late and possibly unnecessary as I think the ref may have given it anyway. Holgate should have walked for the assault on Firmino, that could have caused serious injury. Rooney was too fired up and could also have been sent off for a number of bad tackles. Just a neutral observation.

Not seen that incident GB, but someone on the radio pointed out Big Sam was more than happy with the penalty decision they got in the league game with Liverpool the other week and this was of a similar vein?

I feel your pain I really do, but you must let it go, all the angst everytime United win can't be doing your health any good.

Holgate definitely should have walked. I've seen softer tackles in the Ken Gee cup!

Dive of the week has been hazards v arsenal in gaining a penalty for Chelsea

I can understand fully Wengers anger .

The slightest contact will see hazard go to earth.

England beware this coming summer .

Paul Mcnamara:You are probably right Paul i have looked at it again and on further viewing i think the pen was just right. But i still believe that the problem is that the slightest of decisions these days are so blown up with the tv pundits ,disecting every move /tackle slow-motion it does give at time's, a bias view. Also paul what do you think about the onset of video ref's when they come in are they going to help or not .

Chatty: That guy ( lg) why does he mention about United scoring late when his club have been scoring one or two very ,very late goals also this season ,so what on earth is he on about? From Wigan Athletics point yesterday Bourne mouth equalised in 90 + 2 isn't that harsh ,i mean a game from what i have learned last's until the final whistle no matter how long that be.

uniteds team cost 100s of millions more than derbys yet it too until the 70 odd minutes to score LAUGHABLE..

Refs do a thankless job in football these days never have their decisions been anallised more.
ref sees it once makes a call , pundits view it from 7 different angles in slow motion and decided hes made a howler, not fair really.Then not all of them agree.

offside how did a linesman not see from 35yds away that a forward's left foot was offside. ridiculous.

yes they make bad decisions will VAR make it better , they will still disagree mark my words

Not 100% sure Golden Bear, but it seems to work OK in Rugby matches!
