 People Think Anthony Taylor Shouldn't Have Been Refereeing Manchester United Vs Chelsea

Referees get abuse for a lot of things, usually their own daft decisions in fairness. Sometimes they'll get blamed for the outcome of the match but having a go at a referee for where he was born is surely too far, right?!

Every referee hates YOUR team and only your team. Actually that's a bit like being a sports writer, every fan thinks you're biased against their team in an incredible lack of understanding for the word.

Fortunately though as a sports writer I've rarely actually been blamed for a team losing a match unlike the pain and suffering that referees go through on a near weekly basis.

That especially seems to be the case in a big game and whilst Anthony Taylor didn't seem to have a particularly bad game during Chelsea's win over Manchester United on Sunday afternoon but Chelsea fans still weren't happy with him.


And it was all because Taylor is from Manchester (ignore the fact that he's an Altrincham fan of course):


It's worth noting, again, that Taylor supports Altrincham- a club that very much aren't Manchester United. Aside from a semi controversial disallowing of a Phil Jones own goal the ref didn't seem to get too much wrong either.

The funny thing is you can almost guarantee the people tweeting about this also like to mention how all the Manchester United fans are from London.

Taylor has previously refereed both United and City in big games without ever coming across as particularly biased.
