    He ****ing jumps into Højbjerg, it’s like he’s trying to dive but does it about 3 seconds too early. Ludicrous. I’m off to get angrily drunk

    I seriously hope that in training we are spending a good amount of time practicing flicking the ball onto the hands or have a hand aiming session where the players try and hit the arm as many times as we can. Let’s go with it and if that’s the new rules then let’s be the best handball winners in the league

    So, Joelinton fouls Hojberg and is gifted a free kick, Andy Carroll wins a header from an offside position and heads the ball onto Dier`s arm from 1 yard away, and a penalty kick is given. The hand ball rule is a bag of shiete and the mugs operating the technology on offsides, how do we know if they are putting these lines up completely accurately.

    Robbed is an understatement. Football is officially dead.

    Nobody who's ever played football, at any level, could dream of making up a rule like this present handball debacle.

    You do know that only certain teams will actually be awarded the penalties, don’t you.

    Steve Bruce has come out and said the decision was nonsense too, which effectively say it all.

    I’m seeing loads of Arsenal fans on social media thrilled at Spurs dropping points in the 97th min of a game they were expected to win. But as I was saying even after the penalty Palace got at Old Trafford, yes, in the short term our rivals have dropped points. But the longer term repercussions of these decisions - and the rationale (or lack thereof) - should worry all of us.

    Any deflection, ricochet or ball to hand incident won’t be contextualised if it hits a player’s hand/arm - it will be a penalty regardless. Intent or body shape or natural position of the arm don’t matter.

    We could easily be subjected to a monstrosity like this, and we won’t be laughing then.

    It’s a huge concern going forward.

    Very worrying.

    The whole lot. VAR, SAGE Westminster, Holyrood, Brussels, Strasbourg anywhere else? A few tonnes of Anthrax might facilitate a preferable outcome. Alternatively, line them all up against the wall and shoot them.

    How long before 5 or 6 players surround a defender and start chipping the ball at him. forget the goal, just isolate a player.

    Yeah the media seemed to be so eager for his interview in the hope he would explode and give them content

    This is very poorly written. It also seems to have been misapplied, both because Dier couldn't see the ball, and because he had been bumped. Being bumped, like falling, tends to make arms fly up. But I don't think that rule is written clearly enough to avoid arbitrary interpretation in many cases, including this one.

    Come the end of the season, there will be clubs who suffer
    severe financial damage as a result of this.

    Relegation. Non-promotion. Non-qualification for UEFA tournaments etc.

    And in amongst all the penalty furore is the news that Sonny has done a hamstring and will be out for a while

    You won`t ever see a decision like that given against Pool or United.

    That’s exactly it. Palace were laughing last week and then suffered this week. We are 2 nil down on these calls so we are owed a couple. Doubt we will get them back though!

    It's not anarchy it's a planned response.
