Irony_1Despite the fact that his side are still attempting to recoup the eight points they were docked for match fixing, Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti has taken the opportunity to complain that refereeing decisions are suddenly going against his side!

    I was hoping you would have a piece about this. Can you believe the balls on that slob!! Get caught FIXING MATCHES and come back the next year after getting phenomenal leniency by the Italian FA (who make the UN look stern) and has the grapes to complain that his side aren’t getting calls?! Un-f**king-believable!
