    Small chance but keep up the wishful thinking

    Did you see the goal the ref ruled out for United Ginge.??
    If that was the right decision then take a look at the goal West Brom scored against Liverpool at Anfield and tell me the difference.? If anything the West Brom goal is much more of a foul.
    So many big mistakes but I have faith that it will improve

    The ref disallows a goal by Man U (the team you say refs are easy on) that could possibly have gone the other way… and you still find something wrong. :unsure:

    I’m being non biased
    I’m showing the error made against Liverpool and the United goal as an example. You are correct the United one could have easily been a goal yet judged a foul yet the West Brom goal judged nothing wrong
    PS did you see what that fool Clattenburg stated.?

    “He (Klopp) is wrong to suggest there is an aura around United that sees them given favourable decisions. There used to be when Fergie was there, but that has eased massively since he left”.

    Firstly, admitting there was bias. Secondly, “eased”, not erased…. :yes:
    Not that it is anything we didn’t already know
    Like I said earlier on the thread bordering on corrupt is being light

    Biased people don’t know they’re biased, Nathan. It’s a sub-concious thing. Your subconcious mind wants it to be wrong therefore you think it is wrong.

    Like a lot of fans and managers – you’re seeing any borderline decision that’s gone against your team as an error of judgement or even deliberately wrong decision.

    Classic bias.

    Have you actually seen the West Brom goal?
    all I am saying is that it was more a foul than the goal that got ruled out for Man Utd
    if you are that blind to not understand that you are biased to thinking that I’m bias

    Your comment doesn’t even make sense
    one of those goals was an error of judgement it has to be because one was given a goal (the worse foul) and one was ruled out (less of a foul) now one of those must have been an error of judgement :wacko: :wacko:
    Just admit you haven’t seen the West Brom goal.

    Classic your talking shite
    What about what Clatterburg said.?
    A ref even said they were bias toward United in the Ferguson years, games he refereed in
    The man in black, the one stood in the middle, with a whistle in his mouth
    you going to tell him he is wrong too… :scratch:

    are you saying that the ref made the right decision in not ruling out the West Brom goal?
    are you saying that the ref made the right decision in ruling out the Man Utd goal?

    Clatter’ is often controversial so I don’t care what he says.

    Yes, I’ve seen the West Brom goal and yes I believe the ref made the right decision in not ruling it out. It was a borderline decision but imo a 60/40, much less borderline than the Man U disallowed goal 48/52. But yes I believe the ref made the right decision there too.

    Why would I be biased towards you, Nathan? Got nothing against you my friend…
    Could it be your sub-concious bias making you think that my bias is making me think you’re biased? :unsure:

    It’s what the thread is all about.

    ie We all have sub-concious bias, but the more a punter realises he / she could be biased… the less biased the punter is likely to be-

    My point was when a punter is a fan of a team he / she’s surely likely to be more biased with bets. Whether that’s for his team or against biggest rivals.

    I have to disagree with your judgement over those goals.
    If those goals happen in the same match with the same ref then they are either both goals or both ruled out

    So Clattenburg says refs were bias to United and you don’t bat an eye lid
    yet you keep saying about my bias or fans sub conscious bias
    goodnight.. :negative:
