    Unlucky for Fulham - correct VAR decision by the laws but does feel so wrong that that's stopping a goal but wouldn't be a penalty if it was the other way round

    Such a crazy rule - Lemina couldn’t get out of the way, ball kicked straight at him, he didn’t control it, just bounced ...... but ..... they gave a penalty against Bertie when the ball was kicked at him .... of course, it didn’t apply to the handball in the Villa game ..... I give up .....
    Good for Saints though .....

    Rules state any sort of ball hitting hand/arm in build up to a goal will mean the goal is disallowed. Although I think the rule is stupid.

    The only way that could have been avoided would be if his arm was in an unnatural position! What the hell are players supposed to do? The game is ruined by this sort of stupid crap. A review of this season completely undermines the sport.

    Solution seems to be attackers have arms in unnatural position while defenders keep them in natural positions





    Picture flying eagles v penguins

    Absolutely. It's an awful, awful rule. (I'm watching the WBA game, but have just checked out the "goal".)

    What is crazy though is that there are some people - including on here - who want that rule expanded!! They want it to apply to all players, not just to attackers immediately prior to a goal.

    Madness.

    And tot look ****. Be typical if Fulham climb out of relegation thanks to reed and Lemina while we slip down the table.

    When you watch it again, you can see Lemina knows what's coming the moment the ball hits the net.

    Just had a dabble on Trent Arnold for first player to score @ 25/1.
    He does love a freekick.
