Ladies & Gentlemen Of The Jury - PENALTY (Images)

Ladies & Gentlemen Of The Jury - PENALTY (Images)

Last time I looked at the rules (note to any interested women, I don't really look at the rules in my spare time, honest!) a tackle from behind, whether you take the ball or not, is not a legal action in the game.

I would like to submit to the jury evidence part one:

penalty

A tackle from behind.

And a second for your perusal with David Platt apparently agreeing it was a foul:

pen2

In summary ladies and gentlemen of the jury

PENALTY.

tackle from behind, got a chunk of the ball and knocked the ball TOWARDS goal (crucial part that) AND got more than a chunk of the player who was going towards goal along with the ball. Sorry, that is a penalty, if the ball was on the other foot (pun intended) Alex McLeish would have screamed blue murder if they'd not had the same awarded to them.

MoN made the fatal error today of crossing Sky Sports.They were trying everything to stoke the flames after the game,they were just short of telling McCleish that MoN said his mother was fat.

It was a brash tackle regardless of whether he got the ball. As Fear says, if the tackle comes from behind and you don't give the attacker a chance to defend the ball it doesn't matter if you also happen to nick a bit of the ball on your way through the man. Foul. Penalty.

From where I was sat it was never in doubt , it's only when the armchair "fans" see 20 different views in slow motion that anyone could question it. Live at the game it was a penalty, spot on ref

Stonewall penalty. Yes, the defender got a chunk of the ball, but only enough for it to continue on its way towards goal, right in Gabby's path. At that point, you could say it wasn't a penalty, but then the defender takes Gabby out, preventing him from continuing on his path and scoring. At that point, you cannot say it was anything but a penalty.

It wasn't from behind though was it? It was from the side. He got a touch of the ball. The attacking players legs got caught up with another players. That means it was a penalty? NO. I'm sorry but if Mr. Andy Gray says it wasn't a penalty it wasn't he's Mr. Villa.

Why are you discussing this subject anyway? Wether it was a penalty or not? You won by an inaccuracy most Villa fans would agree that you did not do enough to win the game but you did win the game but I don't see the need for a discussion over wether it was a penalty or not? You won ok move on it wasn't a penalty but having a flaming discussion on it shows your not convinced.
