These fans react as ‘Manchester referee Anthony Taylor’ given stewardship of Sunday’s Premier League tie at Old Trafford
Empire of the Kop
The Super League, diving, and ‘beyond reasonable doubt’; it doesn’t happen too often that the footballing world unites over one shared belief – but referee Anthony Taylor could be another in the short list.
It seems that every set of supporters is unhappy when they find out they have the 43-year old in charge of their Premier League games for the weekend; the news that he will be in charge of Sunday’s encounter with Man United is no different.
The Manchester-born referee has an army of haters; it appears Chelsea fans are particular moaners to his presence but now Liverpool and United fans have the opportunity to be upset as he is set to take centre-stage on Sunday.
Given he was born in Manchester, however, we have a lot more ground for upset.
Nevertheless, his history of dubious decisions has caused mixed reactions from the footballing universe as news broke on social media of his appointment to ref this weekend’s tie.
Let’s remain positive though and hope we can see another victory over United this weekend and that Taylor isn’t the talking point at the end of the game, or is that too much to ask?
