"Are You Taking The Piss?" - Class Of '92 & Friends Were Very Angry With Penalty Decision

"Are You Taking The Piss?" - Class Of '92 & Friends Were Very Angry With Penalty Decision

Perhaps somewhat contrived, an exhibition match between Salford City and the Class of '92 (& friends) has benefited hugely from a referee wearing some sort of go-pro camera.

With a host of ex-pros joining Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt to make up the Class of '92's list of friends, old habits died hard when the non-league side were awarded a penalty.

Featuring Giggs, Neville, Butt, Steve McManaman, Jamie Carragher and Shay Given, the Irish's 'keepers vehemence was only a few notches below his aggravation after the Henry handball of 2009.

Such was the consternation, Carragher's assessment seemed to sum up their general dismay: 'Are you taking the piss?'

To be fair to them, it does look like they had a point.

In a match that ended 4-4, Jamie Carragher, and his 'keeper for the day Shay Given, were embroiled in some 'back and forth' over a conceded goal that Carragher felt he had dealt with appropriately.

Here is the goal, and Carragher's response.

Needless to say, that is not how Shay Given read the situation in hindsight.

All in, this looked like that rarest of things; a match of ex-pros that actually seemed somewhat compelling.
