Rafael never went anywhere near the ball though, he fully intended to take the Blackpool player out, it was a penalty and nothing anyone says will make me think otherwise. Referee's are nowhere near consistent enough tbh.bla bla bla Ben.... thats how we role....
on a serious note, there is a discrepancy between fouls in the box and fouls in the field, refs are more leniant on fouls given in the box in comparison to on the field as it is a game changer...
just because a fowl is given outside the box for something small that same fowl in the box WONT be given as a penalty as it is not worthy of a penalty, only a normal fowl on the field!
now alot say well a fowl is a fowl is a fowl, there are different types from a refs perspective!
i was ******** when Rafael did that last night, I would have def thought long and hard as a ref about it, but it was a 50/50 and thats how he plays and the Blackpool player would have never have gotten to the ball in time anyway as he kicked it too far out of his control..
Surprised that no one is talking about Blackpool first goal. Adam clearly elbowed Evra, which should have been given foul, was not given. The resulting corner lead to first goal where we were defending with 10 men as Evra didnt take his position.
He never complained about the penalty though, This thread is one load of BS. he mentioned it in his interview of course he would, granted though he should sort out losing the lead but many teams have before and theres only 2 simples words that explain why that 2 goal lead slipped "Ryan Giggs"Was a penalty yes but Holloway should concentrate on the fact his side let a 2 goal lead slip.
