54 FOUL MNU WIG NC Scholes came in late, ref gave advantage but with foul halfway the Wigan half and with half the United team in defence there was no real advantage, just possession. 3
54 FREE KICK WIG NC Games should have been stopped and a free kick given to Wigan 3
55 FOUL WIG C James McArthur Commits a Regular foul. You could see some frustration for the ref letting things go a few seconds earlier. 1
55 YELLOW WIG NC James McArthur recieves a YellowCard for the following reason: Foul. In the light of the not given fouls a rather soft yellow card. Consistency ref. 3
55 FREE KICK MNU C Rio Ferdinand takes a direct free kick. 1
56 FOUL WIG C Gary Caldwell Commits a Regular foul. 1
56 YELLOW WIG NC Ref is harvesting for letting things slip out of his hands. Caldwell has been called over in the first half and now again and the ref gives no yellow card. Poor refereeing. 3

One Response to Match Review: Michael Oliver – Manchester United Vs Wigan Athletic (4 – 0) [15/09/2012]

  1. Micko says:

    It’s interesting that Martinez has just been fined £10,000 by the FA for calling referee Michael Oliver biased and basically saying that they were cheated out of it after his Wigan side lost this match 4-0 (nothing new every side gets cheated out of it at Old Trafford).
    But up until this point Martinez has always been all chummy with Fergie and the rest of his British cronies at the LMA so that he would be considered ‘one of the gang’. Indeed Martinez would go so far as to slag off the rest of the foreign managers like Wenger, Benitez, Mancini etc. whenever they complained about the clear bias taking place. Now all of a sudden one slip and he’s on the other side of the fence.
    Martinex should realise that he can always try and get onside with Fergie’s NMM (Northern Managers Mafia!) but at the end of the day as soon as he steps out of line he will be punished as he’s then, just another foreign manager whingeing about ‘imaginary injustices’.
