Not great is it.

Did his best not to give us a penalty on 2 occasions, then started throwing yellow cards around like confetti in the 2nd half.

For the first time that I can remember, I'm grateful for VAR.

@Icy Gull will be proud of me..

I thought the ref was poor tonight. At the start he let a lot go on both sides but suddenly became card happy and pulled up everything.

Both penalties were so clear. And the Pedro booking means he must have felt he saw it clearly.

For the first time since Man Utd at home last season. Not that long ago!

I clearly have a short memory. :)

(But I'm sure you get the gist.)

You can't call someone bald in this day and age. It is hair deficient thank you.

The refs seem to be relying on VAR too much rather than refereeing the game themselves. They see it as a back up to make decisions for them rather than a back up to correct their mistakes.

He was forced to rescind Pedro’s yellow card. Ridiculous decision. Everyone in the North stand was incredulous as we’d seen Pedro fouled.
