West Ham United 0 - 2 Mike Dean

West Ham United were well and truly shafted at the London Stadium, not by opponents Manchester United but by that tour de force of refereeing known as Mike Dean! Not only did he incorrectly issue a straight red card to Sofiane Feghouli within the first quarter hour for an innocuous but commited tackle that Phil Jones milked from here to closing time, but he compounded the injustice by allowing Manchester Utd's second goal to stand despite scorer Ibrahimovic being clearly offside. An irate Slaven Bilic: "I was pleased with the performance, we fought hard and gave everything. I told my players that if we did this we will be all right in the table."Ten men against a team like this is very hard - but we had chances."I am disappointed with the result and frustrated by how we lost it, but I am proud of my players."
The ten men of West Ham fought bravely but ultimately failed against the TWELVE men of the visitors, Manchester United manager Mourinho said: "It was hard for us to think well with one more man - and it was very hard for them physically. "I don't feel sorry for West Ham - I didn't watch the decisions. I think if you talk about decisions, we are the champions of bad decisions."
Feghouli's red card will probably be rescinded but it won't change the result! The player would be available for the FA Cup tie this friday against Manchester City if the appeal is successful, this is just as well because Hammers will be without Ayew and Kouyate as they begin their ACON International duties.
This evening's result was a travesty, but West Ham fans leaving the stadium were not moaning about their team's performance which was encouraging, instead they had a trumped up egoist's actions to vent their frustrations towards! Ed
PS: Apologies for no team sheets earlier today, this was due to Ed Junior (after an excessive new year celebration) sleeping through the two alarms that were set in order to remind him to upload the data when it became available.

I used to think Martin Atkinson was the worst Ref where we are concerned. But am convinced Mike Dean thought 65.000 fans had come to watch him...!!

Hard to lay the blame totally at Dean's feet. His total lack of a brain didn't help!!

If this standard of refereeing was anywhere else there would be people questioning the corruption of referees. But here in England it's not even being mentioned. How can so many referees be so consistently imcompetant without any real comeback. I'd be very surprised if all refs in England are squeaky clean. Mike deans respect and credibility from fans and media today has been totally destroyed making the fa's only option to retire him from top flight football for life. For the fa to ignore this will question the credibility of them to govern our game.

mourinho has become a right prat. its almost as if he has to convince everyone that he can still hack it. first it was they were playing great but are the unluckiest team ever now its that they get all the bad decisions. he and guardiola should leave the prem imo. middle aged men acting like kids.
