Lookman for Fulham.  :o

Thatís the risk with hitting penalties like that I suppose. Last kick of the game though. Christ the night!

Would you have him back at Utd to replace Ole?

A very complex question  :)

Not a fan of Jose but I would consider him an elite manager and always contended he wasn't the root of the problem in his time at United despite the prevailing opinion

Only nine games played in the new season and the lack of quality seen so far in this Premier League season is more telling than anything special Jose is doing.

That Fulham penalty... how do you even do that? Hit the penalty with right foot, hits left foot and over the bar.

Anyone see the incident for the villa pen at the weekend? Seems to have really divided opinions from fans.  Initially when I saw it I thought it looked a pen.  Close up it looks like the defender brushed the ball and kicked the attacker. Now I was always a "he got the ball" guy and instantly thought that the pen would be overturned.  Seems a lot of people (neutrals included) feel going through the man after touching the ball would be a foul.  Where would you stand on that? Is the ruling clear?

I think the ref Oliver was spot on, the defender nicked the ball first, the Villa player Trezeguet went for the full leap in the air simulating great hurt. There's no way that any possible follow through contact could have caused such a reaction.   

 Then it comes down to did the ref make a clear and obvious error in the first place?  no he didn't  because it looked like a penalty on first glance. Therefore eveybody are whining about that ref should have  left the original decision as it was ,  but none of them consider that it was Trezeguet's simulation made it look like a penalty in the first place and that's what the ref saw in the video replay.

Yeah I take your point on that, Trez did make a complete meal of it.  Dean Smith said the whole ground could hear the thud of the contact, and I assume that played into the ref's original decision too.

Was thinking the same myself. If a player slides to win the ball, they inevitably take the man as well but this is never considered a foul, is that the same this type of incident? I.e. win ball, then take out the player

If there was such a thud I doubt the ref would even have considered reviewing the decision. And in all honesty how on earth could such a slight contact,  if any, could have caused such an earth trembling thud?
