    Unlucky Huddersfield - leading 1-0 until the tenth minute of added time, then concede a penalty.

    Back down in the bottom three.

    Dodgy one too.

    Gutting for us.

    Didn't help ourselves of course but least we didn't totally fall apart.

    Positive fightback all in vain at the death with a handball goal in the 9th minute of 7 shown although guess that is a minimum.

    Did the ref have clear view?

    Fez, did you think Fraser’s attack on Bachmann was worse than yellow? The force was huge, I thought. I mean, if he gets the ball with that much force, it goes out. So the excess force was entirely to take out Bachmann, imho.
    Your thoughts? :) <ok>

    Probably not - but what was his linesman doing?

    Yes was clear cut.

    Nice control sadly.

    Assisting the referee to not see what he has already decided not to see.

    I was listening on 3CR the first minute was a disaster and for 20 minutes we were not even turning up after that we gradually took control from them and scored our first goal, second half was almost attack v defence and they were hanging on until we equalised and from then on only one team was going to win and we came closest to scoring the winner until extra time, seven minutes were up and the ref would not blow his whistle until Southampton scored the handball goal and then to add insult to injury allowed us to to kick off and then immediately blew up for full time

    GT allways insisted that refs were NOT bent but were only humans making mistakes, today proved that was merely wishful thinking on his part, that ref had to be bent OR so incompetent that he and his partners in crime should never ever referee another professional game

    There was another incident earlier where Kayembe was fouled and the ref gave Saints a free kick and booked Kayembe

    I'm not sure the linesman would be able to see, but I think the ref had a clear view. I agree with Fez about the ref deciding not to see it.
    Frazer on Bachmann, Fez? I thought that was extremely naughty. Reckless amount of force, IMHO. What do you think?

    If I get to see it I'll opine. If it's in the goal area then the keeper is king. Outside of that he's fair game. As a general rule, that is.
    Time for some air rifle shooting!

    No-one is fair game for the poison dwarf Ryan Fraser - nasty little tripehound that he is...
