Well well, isn't Louis feeling bullish today? First he used diagrams to prove Sam Allardyce was wrong; now he wants a personal hearing with the FA, denying misconduct charges over his allegations of bias from referee Chris Foy during United's frustrating draw with Cambridge United last month. This news comes straight from United's mouth (or Twitter account):

The incriminating quote was, according to the Guardian, this:

"Every aspect of a match is against us. We have to come here, the pitch isn't so good, that can influence that you can play in another style. The opponents always give a lot more than they normally give and defending is always easier than attacking. Then you have seen the referee -- it's always the same. Everywhere I have coached these games, and I have coached them with other clubs, it's always the same."

It was Cambridge, Louis. Cambridge.
