Is the PL rigged?

Post by terrya1965 » Sat Apr 13, 2019 11:33 pm

I was chatting to a fan of Huddersfield and they said,they think football in this country is fixed to a certain extent,especially with Man Utd.

The FA & UEFA want them to do well,because they are the team that earns them the biggest(one of biggest for UEFA) revenue.They need them to be successful to make that revenue even greater.

In 2016,we were robbed at OT in the Cup.United were the only big so team left in the competition and the FA and sponsors NEEDED them to be in the Final.

We were close to qualifying for the CL,when near the end of the season we got some major decisions going against us..A couple come to mind,last minute penalty v Chelsea that was not.Koyoute sent off v Palace,that was overturned(both ended in draws).There were a few others.United actually missed out on goal difference in the end,but went on to to lift the FA Cup.

I am beginning to think,there could be something in it..You wouldn`t be surprised,would you?

Anything in life that has pots and pots of cash will always involve corruption.

How can you ask such a question not knowing the answer?! The incompetent refs couldnt even get making bad decisions right.

A good person does things in silence, others strive to be seen as good so scream out their deeds.

Ask Colin

I never used to think it was, but the way sides like Man U get so much help to win games and keep them challenging has made me thing there is something sinister. Did anyone think it would happen in Serie A?

We were robbed of a CL because Tottenham and Leicester were already in the Top Four and they couldn’t have that

If it’s not bent then the actual standard of refereeing is so poor it’s disgusting and it costs people jobs

You've answered the question. Officiating at the top level for supposedly the best league in the world (so we're told), is laughable.

The officials aren't bent but fucking useless. And at places like OT and Anfield they subconsciously favour the home side as the crowd are baying for them to do so like the first penalty yesterday. It takes a brave ref to say no.

What's needed is for the officials to be accountable. Refs should be made to go on the media after a game, just like the managers, to explain their decisions and to face demotion if they consistently fuck up. They're well paid so why should they be treated differently ?

Naturally the FA, the PL and the Refs union would object as they would say it would deter people from refereeing.

But for 2 grand for 90 minutes work I think I'd be able to handle being called a cunt. It happens anyway and I don't get a penny for it.

Yes

No one can be that incompetent on a consistent basis

Liverpool at OS - goal offside, tried to give Origi the winner aswell

Yesterday. Goal disallowed and disgraceful penalty. 2nd was a pen but damage done

Been loads of other examples of top 6 bias this season.

You may hate Warnock but at least he calls it out. If the r14 clubs actually starting acting together then perhaps there would be more done. Instead we continue collectively infighting

The fact that they are so slow to bring in VAR kind of proves that its rigged .

That was one of the reasons why there were so many corrupt decisions near the end of the season.They couldn`t have Leicester & West Ham in the CL,because if neither of us got out the groups,it could have reduced our numbers from 4 to 3 going into the following season.Our clubs had struggled in the last few seasons in Europe,so we needed to have strong teams in there to make sure it didn't happen.
