Manchester United 8/1 to score in Fergietime… and other Howard Webb betting specials

Howard Webb

Good ol’ Premier League. As if Manchester United against Liverpool needed any more spice, they’ve elected Howard Webb to officiate this Sunday.

And Paddy Power has priced up a number of online betting specials available for the big match, starring Mr Webb (see link at end of story).

For example, Liverpool are 8/11 to get the most yellow cards with United at 7/4 and a tie at 9/2. Manchester United are 8/1 to score in ‘Fergietime’ and Luis Suarez is 6/1 to be booked for diving.

It is the first time the ref will take charge of a game involving the pair since their controversial FA Cup meeting in January 2011, reports The Independent newspaper.

Back then, United got a penalty after Dimitar Berbatov was deemed to have been fouled by Daniel Agger while Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was sent off for a tackle on Michael Carrick. The match ended 1-0.

After the game, then Liverpool forward Ryan Babel, using all his literary skillstweeted: “And they call him one of the best referees? That’s a joke. SMH [shaking my head].”

He’s big, he’s red, he sleeps in Fergie’s bed

Babel retweeted a Photoshopped picture of Webb wearing a Manchester United shirt, and was fined £10,000 by the FA.

Webb is one of the most respected officials in the Premier League but has been slagged in chants such as: “He’s big, he’s red, he sleeps in Fergie’s bed.” Hardly. Mrs Fergie would never allow it.
