    Are we just unlucky...........

    ...... or are all the refs as poor as the ones we seem to get week in and week out?

    Do they save their horror shows especially for us?

    Linesman disallowed a goal. Really poor mistake. Said ball had gone out of play. It definitely hadnt.  Cost a place in the final imo.

    Have you seen it yet, Arsene?? Wink

    As you will have seen MA, I referenced it on fb with the 1932 "over the line" F A Cup Final when Arsenal were robbed by a similar incident V Newcastle. On that occasion the ball was out of play but the Magpies scored the winner from the cross.

    What goes around, comes around - but sometimes it takes a bloody long time !

    Sod technology. Nothing inspires a Derby crowd more than a bad referee - we love them!
    Think of the atmosphere after Wanchope had been sent off against Boro, tell me anything else that happened in the Atwell game that didn't happen in that 3 minute period. Referees drive me mad but sometimes there is precious little else to talk about or get you excited! lampard's goal that was about 47 feet over the line - it really is all I remember about that world cup, apart from those stupid vuvuezela things. Bad refs, mistakes - part of football. What would DavesaRam do with his time if they were perfect?

    I can think of plenty of outrageous decisions affecting other clubs, so it's not just us.

    Remember Atwell and his assistant awarding a "ghost goal" against Watford
    when the ball never went anywhere near the goal line? To add insult to injury,
    Atwell sent off a Watford player for complaining about the decision.



    I don't think we're more unlucky than other clubs. We all get the same officials
    and they all make mistakes, though maybe most referees make fewer mistakes
    than players who pepper the corner flag and the upper stands with goal attempts.

    Maybe better clubs rise above bad decisions more often than we do and we're not
    as resilient as we should be --  or as good as we thought we were.

    Don't worry. The era of the Video Assistant Referee is nearly upon us, and the Attwells of this world will soon be a thing of the past.
