Abysmal Actions Of Liverpool Players Detract From Dour United Display
Despite their deserved derby defeat, Manchester United were still able to boast that they are still the class side in the North West Derby. In football terms, United did not offer anything positive, but there were two instances from two different Liverpool players that showed just how classless and cowardly the home side were in the match.
After the match Sir Alex Ferguson, who is facing a possible touchline ban following his just remarks of Martin Atkinson’s refereeing performance against Chelsea, ordered his players to remain silent following their loss to Liverpool.
That bold, but warranted decision by the United manager will automatically impose another fine on the club, because managers and players are ridiculously required to speak to the media following a match. In regard to the media blackout, Ferguson applied common sense logic, “If you do not have nothing good to say, then don’t say anything at all,” but because of that stubbornness the United manager will be in more hot water.
These completely bias pundits should really have their journalism privileges revoked, because they never offer anything but a “Anybody But United” mentality, and that, ultimately, led to Sir Alex to banning any communication with the media – even to MUTV. The post-match reporter should be really thanking his lucky stars, because s/he was spared a certain verbal telling off by Ferguson after he would have been order to prod Sir Alex into relinquishing his hostile thoughts.
Any simple agitation would have surely sent the Gaffer off the deep end with another rant against the referee and those two Liverpool players.
The United manager, who admirably stood up for Wayne Rooney after he threw an inexcusable elbow towards James McCarthy, must be thankful that he does not have two criminals like Jamie Carragher and Luis Suarez in his squad of players. Carragher, who is considered to be one of Liverpool’s greatest ever servants, showed complete abandonment and recklessness with his x-rated challenge on Nani, which left the United playmaker needing to be stretched off with a deep gash to his left leg.
However, moments later Carragher was almost outdone by another chicken-hearted act from a proven footballing thug as Suarez continuously tarnishes his ability as a player. After Rafael, rightfully, earned himself a yellow card for his wild tackle on Lucas, it kicked-off a skirmish between the United and Liverpool players, however, Suarez took it to another level, and was pictured pulling his the young full-back’s hair. Because of his pompous, bigger-than-life attitude, Dowd decided against properly policing the melee, so there is no way that he saw Suarez commit this heinous act, so, theoretically, he should face a nice suspension from the FA.
To be honest, what is even more baffling, almost amusing, is how some these so-called “neutral experts” tried making light of Carragher’s high, studs-showing lunge on Nani by saying that it was equal to Rafael’s challenge. Craig Burley has never hid his distaste for United, and that was there for all to highlighted he comically failed to recognize that Nani used a burst of adrenaline to race over to show Dowd the result of tackle.
Shamefully, all of one-sidedness in the media has completely fogged up United’s terrible team performance, which should have been the focus of discussion.
Because of disgraceful lack of professionalism on display by the Liverpool players – and the referee – United’s retched performance has flown under the radar. Not one United player put in a performance worth mentioning, which was disappointing considering the fact that this was a must-win match for the Reds.
To be honest, each individual performance was equivalent to a shrinking violet, which was very uncharacteristic of one of Ferguson’s team. Time and time again, when a United player was presented with an opportunity to take the game by scruff of its neck, each them failed miserably, which was even harder to stomach than Carragher’s challenge.
Now Sir Alex Ferguson and his Manchester United coaching staff need to pool their resources to resurrect their season before self-destruction destroys their season’s aspirations.
