Noel Hunt: Feels he was denied a penalty

The Royals striker feels he was denied a definite penalty during a crucial relegation scrap at the Madejski Stadium.

He also believes that he saw a perfectly good goal ruled out for offside and has branded referee Jon Moss and his assistants a 'disgrace' and 'embarrassing'.

During a post-match rant which could land him in hot water with the Football Association, Hunt said: "I've seen the offside and I've seen the penalty on me in the first half and it's a disgrace.

"It's a joke that he has not given it, I don't know what he is looking at, but these decisions are embarrassing. It makes the game a different game.

"There is no excuse. He's (Brad Guzan) just punched me in the back of the head and got the ball and you wouldn't get away with it in rugby."

On his disallowed goal, Hunt added: "I was trying to see where the ball was coming from and my chest is (offside), but my feet behind.

"The linesman's position was shocking and he was two or three yards behind it."

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...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.
