Sean Dyche: Blames ref for cup defeat

The Clarets had Brian Stock sent off towards the end of the first half following his second yellow card, for a shirt pull on Jim O'Brien.

The former Doncaster midfielder picked up his first yellow following an altercation with Tykes striker Marlon Harewood as Barnsley prepared to take a free-kick in the 25th minute - and that decision was the one Dyche was unhappy with.

Dyche said: "It was inflicted out of our hands today.

"We were in control of the game and not even at our best but still in control up until the sending off and, to be honest, contained the game well, even after the sending off.

"Referees have a job to do and it's very difficult but the first booking is unfathomable on Brian Stock. I've seen it five times and he's nothing to do with it, I don't even get it.

"Harewood comes in and gives a push in the back of the head, I'm amazed our player gets booked, I've seen it so I'm even more amazed.

"He (Harewood) gave him a little nudge on his head and, as far as I knew, the rules state that that's off.

"Referees have a tough job but I think he's got it clearly wrong today and the first booking then leads to, you know...you're always on that knife-edge after that.

"I've got no problems with the second because it happens, that's the rules. The first one I think it stunned everyone, you can sometimes tell by the reaction in the crowd.

"I'm convinced if we're 11 v 11 we go on and win the game."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
