I'd say vidic was stumbling and the push was enough to put him to the ground, was it was a foul.
Also regarding the Larsson thing, I think he was great at that moment were he just didged all those players, just that he messed up the shot big time, but his perception of the lille players was very good.
The irony is that a Frenchman invented the quick free kick.
No mention has been made of Odimwangers flashing of the card routine, I think the referee saw that and immediately wanted to be biased against Lille. Disgraceful behaviour from that little oink.
I've just read that Lille have lodged an official complaint with UEFA over our goal. Bloody hell.
If UEFA don't treat it with the disdain it deserves, if they actually hear it out...
I've just read the same thing. The nerve!!
What is more disgraceful is Lille's response. Forged tickets caused the crush, the police acted fine, the goal was illegal, the walkout was entirely acceptable.
Especially when you consider that majority of the touting was done by French people by the sounds of it. Lille reckon it's United's fault cos they gave out the tickets too early, from what I've heard (and remember seeing on manutd.com) they weren't posted out/available for collection from United until 2 weeks prior to the game (maybe less?).
Can't see how they can complain about our fans behaviour when theirs were the ones throwing flag sticks and whatever else at the players whilst they were trying to play.
Lille having the audacity to question United's practices in Europe. United have been in it every year for donkeys', you'd think the club knows what it's doing.
Kick the cheeky ****ers out, it's that simple.
UEFA have rejected Lille's request to replay the tie, now hope we thrash them in the second leg.
