Stale Solbakken: Unhappy with Molineux referee

Stale Solbakken: Unhappy with Molineux referee

Solbakken was unhappy with the decision to award Brighton an 89th-minute penalty after Mathieson ruled that Stephen Ward had handled from Andrea Orlandi.

Wolves had to play for the entire second period a man down after captain Karl Henry had been dismissed for a lunge on Liam Bridcutt in first-half stoppage time, with a last-gasp equaliser from Roger Johnson rescuing them.

Solbakken, who had punched a hole in the top of the dug-out when Brighton grabbed their first equaliser, said: "The ref made a big mistake.

"When it is one minute left you should be 100 per cent sure that it is a penalty and it was far from a penalty. I think if we had lost 3-2 after the guts the guys showed in the second half it would have been hard to pick them up.

"I think the referee got the red card spot on, but when you see the replay for the penalty it is so far from a penalty. He (Berra) had his arm inside his body and the referee does not even see it because he is standing and looking at five Brighton players with their arms up.

"I don't like that because he is taking a chance. I have made mistakes in my life and he has done so I can live with that. But I think that he must think twice. I told him to look at the replay. If it is in the middle of the park you can take it on a feeling and blow, but you can can't blow there (in the penalty area)."

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.
