    Is Taylor really a United fan? I thought Refs had to name the team they support. Been better to have avoided a local man though.

    He says he supports Altrincham. All his family support Utd.
    I would say exactly the same if he supported City.
    You could have put your money on this. We always have problems with him.
    We really will be playing 12 men.

    Don’t trust Taylor lol

    Michael Oliver is hands down the best ref in the league

    Mariner isn’t bad but Pawson, friend , moss and Atkinson are dreadful in my opinion

    Refs have a tough job but the amount of clear cut stuff they miss is poor

    Definitely would have been better to avoid a local man. He could easily support either of the Manchester clubs. None of us know. Certainly never known him to be overly lenient to us. If anything, I think this will work against us as he’ll be aware of all the City fans’ complaints and could easily be more on the side of City as he would be terrified of having his integrity questioned. Either way, silly decision.

    If i was a City fan, would just sit and enjoy the season. On current form City should be running away with the game. But you can’t rule out an upset. But the way City is playing now. I wouldn’t be too keen to face them. This game will be attack vs defense. And chances will be few and far. Mourinho will not be stupid to open up away to City. The referee will have little impact on this game. The onus will be on City to break them down.

    Mourinho could be the ref and City should still hammer this Utd team. There’s just so much between the sides at the moment. These next two games will be painful I think. De Gea probably the only player that would get in either City or Juventus side so I would be amazed if Mourinho pulls out a point from either match

    Editor.
    It is known who he and his family support.
    My issue is why not another ref.
    Makes you wonder

    The CL, United will progress comfortably as they will have enough to beat Valencia and Young boys which will guarantee their qualification. But the PL is a different story.

    Adlab, all that article says is that City fans say he supports Utd. Do you have any decent source that is not a City fan on twitter or a City fan site that says he supports Utd? Like I said, either way, I think that can only help you more than it can help us as all this fuss will have him scared of having his integrity questioned and will probably subconsciously be harsher towards us.

    Groundhog Day! Lol.

    If it helps, Ed, one of the broadsheets investigated this a couple of years ago and wrote this:

    This isn’t the first time Taylor allegiances have been questioned but I did speak to the Altrincham chairman, Grahame Rowley, on Friday and hopefully it might convince a few people to see the latest controversy for what it is. “Anthony has always been an Altrincham fan,” he told me. “Even now, he gets a season ticket every year to support the club, despite the fact he can’t go to all the matches. He has helped with refereeing schools at the club and he is often at the ground. People around here always ask if you’re a Red or a Blue. He’s actually a great advocate for non-League football and he should be praised not criticised.”

    Obviously a load of click bait links using the same made up article for the source may negate the truth for some.

    Each to their own.
