It wasn't a penalty, but we should have had one from the clear handball earlier in the game anyway.

It depends on your philosophy on football.

I take it you are talking about the Carragher and Mascherano incidents. In which case, I believe it can be excused when a player slides and collides with the ball, and in Carra's case the ball richocheted off his knee onto his arm (and hence ball to hand). Similarly, are players expected to slide to block a ball with their arm behind their back risking injury?

Anyway, based on my opinion on football the last minute penalty was not a penalty. But, it is undeniable that if the same thing happened outside of the box, it would have been a freekick (like it was with N'Gog a few minutes earlier), so by that analogy it should have been a penalty.

I really wanted to come on here and say how unfair UEFA refs are to the EPL teams.. almost like they have a problem with us being so good... just look at Deco red card or Arsenal's game in Kyiv or Gooners last game and Diaby's card... or many other games where Man U or Arsenal or any of the British teams are involved..

but then I saw the Liverpool game last night.. :blink:

and I realised.. they are just bad..

Gerrard had his reservations but denied the penalty was the result of any theatrics on his part. "I'm not sure it was a penalty. I got there first and I think if that is outside the area you get a free-kick," the Liverpool captain said. "If it happened at the other end we would be livid. That's football. It's a point and we move on."

Says it all..

Boy are the pedestals high for liverpool fans... I wouldn't call them the most successful English team. That would have to go to Man Utd.
