Howard Webb is trending on Twitter as Liverpool fans voice their grief after Cup exit
It's fair to say that the Liverpool fans won't be sending any Christmas cards to Howard Webb by the time December rolls around.
The referee, considered by many to be the best in England, came under fire on Sunday for failing to reward Liverpool a second penalty in the FA Cup clash with Arsenal.
This came after Luis Suarez was clearly fouled in the box by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Then came the vitriol...
This was the 7th straight defeat for Liverpool in matches officiated by Howard Webb"disgusting

Although I do agree Howard Webb is the worst ref in England, we had way too many missed chances to blame the ref for our loss today. #LFC
