What the hell? Not only did the Sherminator's Spurs roll over the once mighty Manchester United in the Theatre of Wet Dreams, but Ferguson's favourite employee ignored two very decent claims for Manchester United penalties and failed to add on any additional time with the Mancs still pressing for an equaliser.
Sir Alex himself was unavailable for comment, but a source close to the Scot said:
"You only had to look at the former great gaffer's face as he watched the game to know what he was thinking. He has always been proud of the special relationship he has with Mr Webb and would unquestionably feel bitterly disappointed by the referee's performance out there."
"It was clear to every Manchester United fan in the stadium - with the exception of Mr Webb it seems - that two penalties should have been awarded and, under normal circumstances, we would have expected a red card to be shown to Lloris too."
"Quite what Mr Webb was thinking of, it is difficult to imagine. Perhaps he got confused seeing David Moyes calling for penalties and, in his mind, imagined that the claims were being made on behalf of Everton - and Mr Webb would never give a penalty at Old Trafford to a team from Liverpool of course."
"That is the only possible explanation. But there can be no going back now. Mr Webb will almost certainly lose his retainer and the club will probably object to his officiating any future Manchester United games. His decisions have, in all probability, cost us a tilt at the title this season, and such misdemeanours will not be tolerated."
Moyes, himself, did not hold back raging:
"It was scandalous! If you follow through on a player anywhere else on the pitch with your foot high, it would be a sending-off and a red card. You couldn't do that anywhere else. The goalkeeper comes out, Ashley Young gets the ball before him and he follows through. It's an incredible decision which didn't go our way, in fact probably the one of the worst I think I saw."
