30 Years Of Listening To Ferguson MOAN!

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was left MOANING again as his side dropped two points in their push for the Premiership. Danny Simpson's challenge on Javier Hernandez saw referee Lee Probert book the Mexican for diving. Sir Alex Ferguson: "It was a clear penalty. It's an insult because he's booked him. "I thought the referee had a good game tonight, but he's let himself down by booking the player. "If it's not a penalty, fine, but to book him is an insult. There is definitely contact, no doubt about that." Alan Pardew: "My heart sank because I thought the ref had given it. "The history of Manchester United - last-minute goals, the club that they are, the manager that they have, I honestly thought the referee had given it. "You have to applaud him for the decision he made because it was the correct decision. "Danny stuck a leg out, if I am honest, but just retrieved it back in and Hernandez went over. "He took that opportunity and in the last minute, I don't criticise him for that - I might have done it myself - but the referee got the decision right and we got, in my opinion, a deserved draw."
