Result: Tottenham Hotspur hold on to beat Manchester United By Michael Penkman, Reporter Filed: Wednesday, January 1, 2014 at 8:34 NIG Tottenham Hotspur have beaten Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Emmaunuel Adebayor and Christian Eriksen. Danny Welbeck pulled one back for David Moyes's side, but the North London side were able to hang on for a second consecutive victory at the home of the Premier League champions. David de Gea had kept out Aaron Lennon before Adebayor climbed above his marker to head Eriksen's cross past the Spanish goalkeeper in the 34th minute. Roberto Soldado could have added a second before half time when Lennon centred from the right, but the Spaniard flicked wide at full stretch. Danny Welbeck felt that he should have been awarded a penalty after the break when upended by Vlad Chiriches but Howard Webb waved away the protests. Spurs went 2-0 ahead when another cross from Lennon was headed in by Eriksen in the 65th minute, but the home side restored hope tw ...

Miranda must be a bloke... About as funny as Howard Webb reffing at Old Trafford.
Ferguson insisted United should have had a penalty when Steven Caulker clattered Wayne Rooney in the box - a view shared by Sky pundit Jamie Redknapp. Ferguson said: 'Rafael was fouled in the build-up to their goal. It was a clear foul but we didn't get it. There was no way we were going to get a decision from the linesman. "It was a clear penalty earlier. He has put his leg right in there. The linesman is facing it. He had a very poor game. "We have got that history with him. He never gave offside with (Didier) Drogba at Old Trafford when he was three yards offside. Everyone remembers that. I certainly do. "He was shocking today. I'm disappointed in him." The United boss could be in hot water with the FA for questioning the official's integrity. I was alive when Leo Messi broke Muller's record
Martin's Starting Stats On Super Sunday Manchester United continued their extraordinary record under Sir Alex Ferguson of never losing a league game at Old Trafford when winning at half time - a run that stretches all the way back to 1986. It was United's eighth win in their last nine home Premier League games against Liverpool, the exception being the 4-1 win for the Reds in March 2009. It was only the 13th time Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand have started in the last 79 Premier League games and they have only lost one of the last 28 Premier League games that they have started together - winning 18 and drawing nine. The one defeat was 1-0 at Arsenal in May 2011. United are unbeaten in last 22 Premier League games at Old Trafford in the month of January, winning the last 17. Their last January defeat in the Premier League at Old Trafford was actually against Liverpool on January 22, 2002. Surprisingly the game saw Howard Webb take charge at Old Trafford for the first time since Man United's 8-2 win over . ...

"Ferguson is the symbol of English football and he deserves to be an idol because of the work he has done. I believe his players are happy with him and that is excellent for the atmosphere of the club. I don’t want to talk about his future but Mourinho is perfectly able to work for Manchester United and any other big club in the world. I would have preferred another team in this round, but Real Madrid are always serious candidates for the Champions League title because we don’t fear any rivals, and to play at Old Trafford is a reward for any footballer." - Xabi Alonso AS27

Nani's Mysterious Goal Against Tottenham Following a Hand Ball ￼ Old Trafford just does not seem to be a nice place for Tottenham Hotspur. Just a year and a half after a Howard Webb penalty incident, Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes conceded one of the strangest goals you will ever see. With United leading 1-0 in the second half Manchester United right back played Nani into the box. Nani appeared to be tripped up by Spurs defender Younes Kaboul inside the box, which Nani felt deserved a penalty. Replays showed that Kaboul may have in fact caught Nani inside the box and a penalty COULD have been given. In typical Nani fashion though, the Portuguese winger stopped playing and picked up the ball, since he assumed that his dive would lead to a penalty, however referee Mark Clattenburg never blew his whistle to give the penalty. Seeing Nani holding the ball with his hand, everyone on the pitch naturally assumed that if there was no penalty, Tottenham now had a free kick. Gomes placed the ball down to take ...

On behalf of all Arsenal fans, im here to show our disapproval to the appointment of Mike Dean as the refree btwn Arsenal @ Man u at the Old Trafford this cming wknd. The man is a well known Man U sympathiser who would do anything to get them a win, he has previously awarded dubious penalts to them in recent tyms, he has given them 7 penalts since 2011 @ this is even more than Howard Webb who is also a well known United supporting refree
These are all facts and btw arsenal have won 1 outta 15 matches Mike Dean has officiated Mike Dean, referee, when Blackburn beat Utd 2-3, hasn't refereed a Utd game since.

While all the focus might have been on the signing of Robin Van Persie at Old Trafford during the summer, there was one piece of transfer business that slipped quietly under the radar as once again Sir Alex Ferguson exhibited all his wiles by shipping out Howard Webb and bringing in Mark Clattenburg as a brilliant replacement... please leave Manchester United alone o!

Soccer souls wrote. "The person at the head of the PGMOB and who is in charge of selecting which referee gets handed which game is Mike Riley, an ex professional referee who is most famous for giving a penalty for a clear dive by Wayne Rooney in the 2004 Man Utd 2-0 win against Arsenal which ended the Gunners 49 game unbeaten streak. Riley was accused of pro united favoritism throughout his career, for younger readers, he's my generation's Howard Webb. According to the Guardian's research, which goes back to the beginning of the 1997-98 season until 2004, "Riley refereed 23 united games in all competitions and gave 12 penalties for united in that time but only three against them.

Unless it's Howard Webb at Old Trafford. Not even divine intervention can save you then.
If Felix Baumgartner landed at Old Trafford, Mark Halsey or Howard Webb would award Man United a penalty.
Robin Van Persie has backed the FA's decision not to take action against him following his clash with Yohan Cabaye. Newcastle boss Alan Pardew called on the FA to take action against Van Persie, accusing the Dutchman of elbowing Cabaye during Manchester United's 3-0 away win. The incident was not seen by referee Howard Webb and after reviewing video footage the FA have decided no further action needs to be taken against Van Persie. Asked about the decision from the FA over the Cabaye incident, Van Persie told voetbal.nl: "And I agree with the union." Van Persie has quickly settled into life at United following his big-money arrival from Arsenal and the striker is enjoying his new surroundings at Old Trafford. "It's fun and it's going well," added Van Persie. "It is a great challenge. "I will have to change a bit, but that happens in life often enough."

Howard Webb has given more Red cards than any referee dead or alive,mostly in Old Trafford
Last season, Manchester City romped to a 6-1 win at Old Trafford, inflicting on their rivals their biggest embarrassment under Ferguson. The referee on that day was Mark Clattenburg. He sent Johnny Evans off in the second half for a clear professional foul. There have been 34 Man United league games since that day. The number of times times Clattenburg has refereed them? Zero. Not a single one. It seems that the FA, for whatever reason, doesn’t want Clattenburg to referee Man United games anymore. Some of us more paranoid folk may just wonder who’s behind that decision. The FA has no hesitation to hand United games to Howard Webb though: he’s been the most used referee in 34 United games since the 6-1 defeat to City. Webb’s history in Man United games is well known and documented. All I have to say on the matter is that more than 18% of the penalties he’s awarded in his ENTIRE Premier League refereeing career have gone to Manchester United. Over a 9 year period, that’s a huge percentage
In his career as a Premier League referee, Howard Webb has awarded 18% of penalties he has given to Man United. 18% to ONE club, in 9 years. Former Premier League referee Jeff Winter was not given another Man United game for 2 years after sending off one of their players. Mark Clattenburg has not refereed a Man United game since he oversaw their 6-1 defeat by Man City at Old Trafford. Chris Foy won't be getting their game again then
How did Man Utd not get awarded one penalty at Old Trafford this evening? Bring back Howard Webb!!
No penalties, Chris Foy is no Howard Webb and the manure lost out at Old Trafford.
do these refs not know we're at Old Trafford?? wheres Howard Webb when you need him??
Just 1 minute of added time given by Howard Webb here at Old Trafford. Manchester United trail 2-1!
