Matt Thompson’s call for a drastic resolution to the controversial A-League decider
Matt Thompson thinks the A-League Grand Final should be replayed.
The match was marred with controversy when a technical failure meant Victory’s goal – the only goal of the game – could not be overturned for offside.
Hosting Macquarie Sports Radio Mornings, Matt said Newcastle fans should feel “robbed”.
“Victory supporters should too,” Matt said.
“How can you, as a Victory fan, legitimately claim that as a win?
“It’s forever going to be a tainted result.
“It was a sporting travesty of the highest proportions.”
Matt said watching footage of Victory fans celebrating the win made him feel “sick in the stomach”.
