I must admit I missed it after the game yesterday but i see that Anthony is taking a load of flak for cupping his ear towards the Coventry players at the end of the shootout.
I've seen the footage and pics this morning.
Seems to be a story out of nothing. I agree it was not very humble in the moment and it lacks class.
But like a lot of fans a lot of players are pretty stupid, uneducated and unnecessarily hostile and a lot of them do lack or certainly display a lack of class and decency on a weekly basis.

All the focus is on Antony because he's a Manchester United player. Had it gone the other way and a Coventry player did it, no one would have even cared or commented.

No one knows whether one of them had said something to him during the game and it was a reaction.

It's just media garbage making everything about United because they have nothing else to talk about.

Ken, couldn't agree more. It's not my cuppa tea if i'm honest but I've seen a lot worse over the years. Also, people acting like Coventry are a bunch of part timers, 2 of their players are on £25,000 a week, nearly made it to the Premier League last season, most of their lads will have been at higher level clubs at some point. I reckon they'll be ok, not sure why we continue the need to be offended for other people.

I was more cheesed off that Hojlund scored the penalty and only Eriksen went up to him!

I’ve seen bits that he only did that in reaction and aimed to Haji Wright who did it to the Utd fans after his penalty.

Yes it’s classless, but it’s also a whole story of nothing.

I picked that up, Hojland sticks away a massively high pressure penalty yet the players didn’t bother celebrating with him. Not sure I have seen anything like it.

22 Apr 2024 13:16:38
Didn’t a Coventry player put his hand to his ear after scoring his penalty? Where is the uproar?

22 Apr 2024 13:34:05
It was a daft thing for Anthony to do but it's just as daft if anybody tries to make a story out of it.
One things for sure, it wasn't eth's fault.

The reason most of the players didn't run to celebrate was because most of them went straight to the Coventry players to console them. I thought that showed class apart from that clown Antony.

If they had all ran off celebrating i’d have thrown the remote through the tv. Scraping through on penalties after being 3-0 up to Coventry. They should have been ashamed and probably were a little bit hence the lack of real celebration.

Antony put his hands to his ears though? So what. The Coventry players were probably calling him all sorts whilst he was on the pitch, and rightly so he’s pretty sh*t, but if they were then you have to expect some kind of reaction from him at some point. He didn't headbutt anyone .

Anthony is one of the worst players I've seen in last 25 years-and seems to be a bit of a moron - but if he wants to cup his ear to the fans that were booing and shouting insults at him as oppostion fans tend to do then no problem.

Little has been made of the Coventry keeper also mouthing off at each United player as they were getting ready to take a penalty. just got to be proffessional enough to rise above it.

Brendan, it wasn’t really about celebrating the win though for me, it was more about a young lad who’s been working his sock off for the team scoring an important penalty with a lot of pressure on and turning round to see no one! Felt like it just showed a disconnect within the team.

I’m not sure it was Ports tbh. I think they didn’t want to be seen to be celebrating too wildly as the job should have been done an hour earlier. They knew they would get slated by the media and United fans alike, and rightly so. Embarrassment played a big part I think.

I don’t blame Hojlund for celebrating immediately after his penalty, as it was a pressure penalty at Wembley in a semi final and he is a young lad. But once he turned around he probably remembered the rest of the shambles of a game and understood why no one was running around celebrating. Apart from Antony ?.
