Just when you thought Ineednoname was only good at riling you lot up, he goes about and gets the Daily Mail to publicize his anti-Michael Oliver rant.

The headline of the story reads (deep breath):

Bayern Munich fans FUME as referee Michael Oliver is appointed for huge Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid just days after he failed to send off Jordan Pickford for horror tackle on Virgil van Dijk in Merseyside derby

— but it is really our own Ineednoname who steals the show in the online post. The story quotes Ineednoname’s apprehension regarding Michael Oliver’s appointment to the Bayern Munich vs. Atletico Madrid Champions League clash.

Below is the extracted portion of the online post that was featured by The Daily Mail:

Excuse me? Is this some sort of joke by UEFA? This guy was terrible in the Merseyside derby, keep him away from us. ‘We don’t want to lose half our squad because an English buffoon doesn’t know how football works.’

So, there you have it. If you doubt how far your voice can reach here, look no further than England. At a minimum, you are getting heard...err, read...there.
