It was no major surprise to hear Alex Ferguson have a go at referee Martin Atkinson after his teams 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.
No surprise from the point of view that it is usually always the referees fault when his team lose, and no surprise from the point of view that Fergie probably had a point this time.
For me though, I have no sympathy for Ferguson when his team have been wronged as he always blames the referee no matter what. He can pick the wrong team, or his team gets beat fair and square and Fergie will always find a way to blame something or someone else, usually the referee.
Yes, it was a soft penalty and David Luiz should have been sent off, Fergie was right. But balance that argument out against the fact that Rooney shouldn’t have been on the pitch to score the opening goal.
We keep hearing that luck balances itself out, Ferguson got lucky on Saturday and unlucky on Tuesday. He also still has the services of Wayne Rooney for the next two games, so in a way he is still in credit as it could and should have been worse.
Tonight justice turned full circle, so stop moaning Ferguson.
