That is an instinctive reaction to turn your back. And he did not raise his arm. You do realise that it is not a penalty if it hits off the top of a player's arm? It hit him right underneath the armpit and it was travelling at 100mph. There is no way he could get out of the way. The handball off of Anelka's flick was a penalty, though.

Also, it shouldn't have been a sending off.
As far as i'm aware anything below the shoulder is hand ball, maybe i'm wrong it wouldn't be the first time. I agree it wasn't a sending off, i also agree that the Malouda one wasn't a pen.

Absolutely not. The ball was travelling at 100mph. The guy turned his back and it caught him under the bicep. That is not a penalty by any stretch. How could he possibly have gotten out of the way?
I disagree. He shouldn't have turned his back and raised his arm

I disagree.

I think there was one penalty and that was the handball.

The one that was ruled outside of the box was not a penalty regardless. It was obstruction and, as I'm sure you know, obstruction is a freekick inside the box.

There was one pentalty, to my mind.
What about the last one from the Ballack shot?

Sounded like a peach from Essien, one of the best players in the world at the moment.
It was a cracker. Shame he was injured most of the season

Gutted for Fletcher i honsetly think he would of played in the final
71  General Community / Sports Talk / Re: Football Talk on: May 05, 2009, 10:28 pm

In the final, I'd expect to see the Scholes or Anderson in his position in the final. Probably Anderson, given the style of footie Barca play.
Don't write off chelsea winning tomorrow. cmon yeah
