Sunderland manager Roy Keane seems to think so:
“Five major decisions have gone against us.
We keep talking about fairness but the decisions certainly haven’t gone our way. You’re looking at six points lost.
I find it very hard to take some of the comments that come my way from referees and officials and generally the attitude to our football club has left me very disappointed.
The attitude seems to be ‘It’s only Sunderland’. All we’re asking for is fairness in the game and this football club is not getting that at the moment.”
He’s right about the Derby game – Sunderland deserved to win that one and were denied by a poor refereeing decision.
But what about the incorrect decisions that have gone in Sunderland’s favor? Are we only going to look at the points Sunderland have lost and not the points Sunderland have gained?
Keano, I respect you a lot, but maybe you should consider this and this as well.
