West Brom 0-3 Manchester United: Five Talking Points
Goals from Phil Jones, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck for United as they notched up a second-straight League win and extended their unbeaten streak in the League to four games. The 3-0 defeat heaped yet more misery on Mel, who is yet to win a League game as manager of the baggies and left the club, level on points with 18th place Cardiff.
#1 Moss makes a mess
The job of a referee is no easy task. But, more often than not, the referees make it tougher for themselves. Whilst it is difficult to get everything right,they too are humans after all, that shouldn’t stop them from getting the simple things spot on. Whether it is missing a clear cut foul or a nasty challenge or the goalkeeper handling the ball outside the area or sending off a player with a second yellow for a bad foul.
Take your pick because, in just 90 minutes referee Jon Moss managed to miss all of that and have a total clanger. It is easy to sympathize with referees if they make a couple of mistakes here and there. But Mr. Moss has demonstrated time and again that he is not up to the mark and the League better take note soon. Because, although his decisions didn’t have too big an impact on this game, chances are, it might well, in the next one.
