      Babel posts altered photo of Webb in United shirt

      LONDON (AP)—The Football Association will open an investigation after Liverpool winger Ryan Babel posted a digitally altered picture on Twitter of referee Howard Webb wearing a Manchester United shirt.

      Webb awarded a penalty against Liverpool and later sent off its captain Steven Gerrard as Man United won 1-0 in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.

      Before linking to the image of Webb, Babel wrote on Twitter: “And they call him one of the best referees. That’s a joke.”

      The FA told The Associated Press that “we will definitely look into this matter.”

      United winger Ryan Giggs scored from the spot in the second minute after Daniel Agger had fouled Dimitar Berbatov.

      Gerrard was dismissed for a challenge on Michael Carrick in the 32nd.

      You'd think they would have better things to look into like Webbs handling of the game.

      If he needs me to go as a witness i am available to back Ryan up in the fact that i also believe that Webb is a f*cking manc tw*t and i will happily stand shoulder to shoulder with Ryan and state said fact.

      Webb was poorly positioned for the penalty decision and the linesman gave nothing.  Poor referee in my opinion, believes all the press about him being the best.

      FA should launch an investigation into Howard Webb first.

      However, after Glen Johnson's comments about Paul Merson, this probably is over the top.

      If he is hit with a ban for instance then I can see football clubs stopping players being on twitter and the like, which in my view will probably be a good thing.

      Shows you how much of a joke the FA are.

      Don't look into berba's dive but have a go at ryan for speaking his mind.

      I was told he puts his head up there. With Rooney joining him.

      The fa are a joke. Let's see babel before they ban him or whatever.

      They would be more in their line to investigate how many dodgy decisions Webb gives to Utd, it is gone beyond a joke now.

      Here's the picture. Can't blame a guy for having a sense of humour, especially when it's the truth. The FA needs to sort their priorities out and investigate some other, more important things instead.

      You can't even sneeze these days without someone posting about it.  :o

      The FA ? A load of old corrupt farts who are so far up the mancs, and why? cos they are sh*t scared of the power that fergie scum has.

      Disgusting.

      A scandal of toto calcio proportion would be fun, with MU put in championship starting with -15pts and several titles given back.

      But perhaps not that fun for the federation.

      I wonder if they would investigate Fergie or Giggs if they did the same thing?

      Babel has just posted Sorry Howard Webb

      The fickle dicks FA would give him a ban so we would be another player down so in all fairness i see where he is coming from.

      fergie is pulling the strings in th FA since ages, nothing new there...but to launch an investigation into this..don't they have other things to investigate as a matter of emergency??..Like that defender who got punched on the face after his squad knock newcastle out..

      When will we see a refs table with relegation for those who have been rubbish all year?? The number of points these refs cost all year by their mistakes is disgusting..as is the answer of the FA related to Babel post..which is spot on.

      The whole sorry thing is pathetic! The FA are a bunch of old Knobs and we shouldn't be surprised as to their reaction. That said Babel should know better!! It's not the first time he fooked up on Twitter.

      Trying to look at it objectively, he's a professional footballer being paid thousands every week and he simply can't criticise a match official in a game he's just played in. It's not fookin rocket science!!

      That said, it doesn't change the fact that HW is up Slurgie's rectum! :mad:

      Imagine the meeting. . .       I think Babel's tweet indicates that all of Liverpool are now pulling in the same direction. If we're not careful they'll be back on their f**king perch. Quick do something! . . .       Ok Sir Alex. We're onto it. . .       Well done lad. Tell Webb he's a good lad too

      Sad and pathetic but then again the FA stands for Fergusons Arseholes so anyone who has a joke at their expense will get a severe punishment.
