    I’ve no problem with Shrewsbury nice place decent place to watch football in fact when we entered the league I used to look to clubs like Shrewsbury and Mansfield etc as a benchmark of our own aspirations at the time. I find it a bit unfair that some on here now see them the same way we were always looked at by clubs with big reputations. The Shrews were a much larger club than ours back in the day and it is just even more testament of our unbelievable success that we can lord it over them at present. They are holding off the challenge of the likes of Bradford and Rovers so they deserve every credit irrespective of the type of style they employ.

    I think you will find that the reaction from posters towards Shrewsbury, is down to the pilluck tedtheshrew. None of this would have been said if he hadn’t posted that drivel.
    We will always remember where we have come from, however in terms of petty arguments, I think having spent 8 years in the prem and won the FA cup we will always have the upper hand against knobhead Shrewsbury fans.

    From Matlock to ManU
    What a journey!

    Only a matter of time before their manager goes to Sheffield Wednesday or someone else then they’ll start crying and sliding down the table as Well.

    Worrying how if Dyche moves from Burnley at some point, they may well look to him, as an ex player.

    I dont think id touch the Wednesday job. Its a poisoned chalice if ever there was one.

    I said when we lost at Shrewsbury that they wold be lucky to make the play offs, and I will stick by it. Had the referee and his side kicks seen the incident above and given the penalty (and possibly a yellow card) the score line and table would look very different now.

    I was sat right behind the lino that didn’t give that and was dumbstruck as to how he didn’t give it as he had clear sight of it and was looking right at it…. he just looked over at the ref and carried on.

    But I am sure the ‘it’ll all work out over the season’ brigade will say it will all work out over the season.

    I would rather they just make the right decisions.

    I wasn’t at the game but I’m assuming from that photo that it was in the middle of the penalty area.
    If so, there’s a reason why the linesman didn’t give it & that is that (in the pre match instructions) the referee will have told him not to come in on decisions in that area.
    The standard instruction is for the linesman to only flag if the incident is on the near side of the area & it’s on the refs blind side. Outside of that you’re to keep your flag down unless there’s an appeal & the ref looks at you for assistance – the look you saw from the assistant to the ref was for that & if the ref hasn’t asked over the mic’s for his input then they won’t have put up their flag.

    That might sound bizarre but it’s what’s expected & it’s designed to stop the chaos that would occur if you have the ref looking at incidents & deciding they’re no fouls and his assistants flagging & undermining.
    From referees i know who run the line in the football league, the higher up you go the less input the refs want from their assistants.
    What you’ve also go to remember at the professional level is that the officials are talking constantly & if at that point there was an appeal & the ref is saying “no foul”, there’s no way in a million years that the liner will put up their flag[/quote]
    That’s alright then

    FA Cup Winners 2013, sounds good that
