think he was probably put there just to embarrass the people chatting shit about formations and tactics on the matchday thread after the team was announced. and because United decided to use paul scholes for most of the comedy moments instead this week

My point was more that the ref (was it Mariner, btw?) got numerous decisions wrong (and some of them 'intentionally'), but only one actually went against Stoke, but because it was one that would've resulted in a red card, they'll harp on and play the victim.
not saying it wasn't a foul, just that it wasn't worth a penalty because he was chasing after a ball that was going away from goal. actually knowing evra he probably wanted the contact more than he wanted the ball. hold it up against the quite similar incidence of kanchelskis in the cup final - that was a foul, but he was running straight through on goal and would've met the ball and probably scored. it (maybe) wasn't a penalty cus it was (maybe) outside the box, but it was worth a penalty and sinclair should've been sent off.
