ON THIS DAY

To be struck by poor refereeing in a Wembley showdown once was bad enough, to happen twice in a season and for a second time in six weeks was unbelievable. Yet here it was again and no consequence for anyone but the victims.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œJames [Milner] is exceptionally lucky his career is intact. It [John Terryโ€™s tackle] should have been a straight red card. โ€œIt was a horrendous challenge on an England team-mate. I have spoken to the doctor who says heโ€™s a very lucky boy. โ€œHeโ€™s 15 yards outside the box and going away from goal. It was a pointless challenge. โ€œBut he made it and therefore the consequences of it should have been a red card. โ€œIt was an obvious decision. You didnโ€™t need four replays to see it. โ€œI am sitting here five weeks on talking about another major incident. โ€œIt is incontestable. Even the Chelsea players knew, you could tell by their reaction it was a penalty. โ€œThe referee has chosen to ignore it because of the possible consequences. โ€œThe referee bottled it against Manchester United and we have had the same today.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
