A lot can be blamed on Cristiano. Like uncontrollable laughter, learning new dance moves, and the superficial importance of matching your Gucci hat with your Gucci belt and backpack.
But this weekend’s officiating is not one of them.
Hoarding bon bons is highly recommend for fans of the following:
- Liverpool, Gerrard came crashing down (in a nifty open-groin sit, which was hot) after Luis Suarez’s disallowed goal briefly lifted the red half of the Merseyside derby’s spirits (replay showed ref’s call was wrong, even David Moyes admitted it should’ve stood).
- Arsenal/QPR, Mikel Arteta’s lone goal of the game marked an end to Arsenal’s dismal week. Only problem Rangers’ manager Mark Hughs and his 10 men had with it was the Gunner’s offside position.
- Chelsea, 44th and 53rd minutes went by like a butterfly, floaty. 63rd minute stung like a red card carrying referee, suddenly. Six minutes later the league’s freckliest freckles were also shown the exit, unfairly (?). Last but not least, Little Chickpea sunk the Blues’ battleship, controversially (?) (FT: 2-3 Red Devils).
