I don't think you will ever be satisfied by referees. You constantly think they're shit and generally just moan they're out to get United.

I couldn't name more than two or three refs in the Premier League but I reckon you've got their home addresses ready to fire bomb when they have the damn cheek to book Fellaini for assaulting someone.

Honestly, just relax. They make mistakes, shit happens.

Manchester United > Amazon

Manchester United have refused a film crew behind-the-scenes access at Old Trafford in what could be construed as an act of derby-day point-scoring.

Manchester City are four months into a £10million, season-long documentary series produced by Amazon Prime, charting their second campaign with Pep Guardiola in charge.

But in a serious blow, they will be unable to capture intimate moments before or after Sunday's clash.

I now expect a few broken Xmas presents or Sorry we couldn't deliver your package notes left at players home addresses

I read this. I agree with the decision as its just another distraction for the players on a big game day, however, someone on FB pointed out that they don't have rights to show any of the game / clips or whatever, so there could be legal implications. Either way, screw em.

Well, we've definitely picked the right time to play Liverpool in the derby...

BFS will have earned a pint of wine if we get anything this weekend.

Personally if I was BFS I would play a Spike Strip defence. As much as I hate to say it the Dippers have a very fast and effective counter attack.

Somebody else pointed out that they wanted to film at OT as viewers would see a full stadium

Er, Scampi, the incident in question had absolutely NOTHING to do with United...?!?

As to the refs being shit, only a select handful truly are, and I've named them on here before. Jon Moss is TOP of the list as the worst 'referee' in the PL by some distance...and he constantly makes ludicrous decisions to confirm that opinion!! The non-penalty at Bournemouth was just about the most clear-cut definite penalty you'll ever see, and for a so-called professional referee to get that absolutely & completely wrong is a disgrace.

I was thinking the same about Everton, you've gone from getting thumped every match to getting results where as we've just had a big win so will probably be over confident heading in to the match. Moreno is injured though so our defence just got better. I'm not expecting a classic match either way.

I hope to be proved wrong, but I have to say I fear for Everton... Mane, Firmino and, in particular, Salah will be licking their chops at the prospect of running at Williams & Keane with the ball... think there will be a few goals in it, though perhaps not as many as those Russian clowns conceded last night!!

Mark Lawrenson has backed Liverpool and United to win so looks like a good weekend for Everton and City fans who will be celebrating their wins.

Yer havin' a laugh with this, right....?!?

Lawrenson would back Liverpool to beat Real Madrid or Barcelona on that feature...he NEVER (and I do mean NEVER, EVER) backs your lot to have anything less than a draw, and that's usually once a season away at Chelsea or citeh!!! If his predictions were accurate, Liverpool would have been League Champions about 40 times by now....

As for backing us, he's just making sure he puts the scud on us in case we shock the entire world and give citeh a proper game without Pogba....

Yup.

If Lawrenson's predictions were accurate Liverpool would have been Champions every season since the BBC started slipping him a few easy quid to write the dross.
