Nigel Pearson: Leicester boss unhappy with referee after 2-2 draw with Nottingha

Zak Whitbread was pulled up for a foul in the 66th minute that Pearson was furious about, Forest scoring from the spot to secure a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.

"It should not be a penalty. It was a perfectly good challenge. He got the ball and the referee is in a very good position to see it," Pearson said.

"If he cannot get that right it is laughable. It is about time these people became accountable.

"There is a team of four people out there and we need to utilise the four of them. I have seen the incident on television again and basically it is a good challenge from Whitbread.

"I think the players have done well today and played pretty well. We did enough to win the game but unfortunately we have had that opportunity taken away from us by other people who have not done their jobs properly.

"We should have had three points but we haven't. Forest getting the second equaliser took the impetus out of the game. I don't think we have had a fair deal today.

"I am not anti-officials, but they need as much help as they can get. So give the fourth official a worthwhile job or don't bother with them."

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
