It was a good performance I thought, especially the 1st half where i thought we shaded the half and deserved to take the lead. 2nd half we went into our shell, don't like it, but you had to expect it. Brilliant defensive performance, really solid, should have been a clean sheet, if it weren't for yet another poor decision from an official. I am sorry, but that wasn't a pen, you see it at EVERY corner in this league, and personally, having watched Fellaini at corners for years, he has been on the receiving end of much much worse. As far as I am concerned, City can count themselves lucky, that was a very United-esque decision. Will gladly take the draw though, I mean their home record of late is intimidating to say the least, need to move on and need the 3pts against Spurs next week and I am hoping our luck begins to turn soon.

I understand your frustration Rob but it is a penalty, the annoying thing I guess from Everton's perspective is that shirt pulling like that is rarely punished but when you do it you're always running the risk, a bit of consistency from refs would be nice though. A draw a fair result I think.

Haha, guaranteed if it were Everton who got the penalty, City fans would be outraged, trying to think of conspiracies involving United as to why that was a penalty. I agree, it needs to be stamped out from corners, but it has become an accepted custom in football, it si the norm and you see it at every corner, so for a ref to decide, on one corner out of 50, that he will call it a penalty is ridiculous, especially since it was completely out of the blue without warning. You were lucky BlueDub, your goal was fortunate to say the least.

I'm sure some City fans would be outraged but if you're going to do that kind of thing in the box you're running the risk of giving away a penalty. Just because they're not always given doesn't mean that they shouldn't be.

I dont understand why you are having trouble admitting City had a bit of good luck today. Take a look at the replay of that corner, tell me the difference between Fellaini on Dzeko and Lescott on Jagelka. Both could have been called, most of the time, and I mean 99% of the time, those are simply play on. It was a bit of good fortune that City got. What is the big deal? As I said, I can guarantee, after going on your site for a couple years now, and seeing what your lot have been complaining about, I can guarantee yo, yes you Bluedub, would of felt a bit aggrieved at that penalty and felt hard done by. That is all I am saying, penalty or not, you cannot argue, given just how often those are given, City got a bit of luck today.

I'm not denying we got a bit of luck Rob, I've already said that to you on VMC. I think we were worth a point today though.
