    Hah, great typo :D

    Does make me wonder what's going on on the Arsenal forums for Dougs to have that stored as predictive text... o_0

    Loooool! Concerning that swift key auto-corrected that after I accidentally deleted a few letters! Should have been common sense, honest!

    Farce of a ruling.

    The sport's rules, drawn up by world governing body Fifa, state that while a player should be booked for deliberately handling the ball, a red card should only be shown for "the unacceptable and unfair intervention that prevented a goal being scored".

    They make no mention of a player's intent when handling the ball.
    With that in mind, I think I agree with the outcome here. Obviously the handball didn't actually prevent a goal being scored (even if Oxlade-Chamberlain handled it because he thought it would), and so I guess a red card wouldn't be warranted.

    I must admit I was under the impression that a player deliberately handling a ball like that was a red card offence, but apparently not.

    But all handballs given are deemed to be deliberate...

    Are we 100% sure it was going wide?

    @RightBean If it does prevent a goal, then it's an automatic red card. But in this case it was clearly going wide. This video here shows the best angle:

    Well if it's not an automatic red card I am surprised we don't see it more often, if the balls likely to go in the net one might as well dive and handball it if it prevents a goal without real any consequences.
    Bit that's what they're saying.... It was going wide, therefore no goalscoring opportunity

    First time I'm seeing it. That is an absolute top class save. Seaman would have been proud of that.

    Despite all the arguments I think we can all agree that this weekend the Ox has guaranteed his place on the plane to Brazil as 3rd goalie.

    Ive got to admit, if i was a fan of a decent team, I wouldnt be exactly thrilled with the prospect of our players having a morale crushing outing with england.
    You are assuming they really care enough. And if the those that do, /cough Cleverley, they're so poor it can't do any harm.

    Gotta love BAE.

    I miss Benny :-(

    Was a bit of a liability at times but a better player than Rose is at the moment.

    I'm mystified why BAE isn't in the side any more (though I don't see all Spurs' games by a long way) - he struck me as a good solid player who offered something going forward too.

    Watch The Ox's desperate attempt, I think he was going for it with his head and misjudged. Desperation on the spur of the moment rather than cynical cheating.

    Ooooh, some big games tonight... Horwich Murderers away being the biggest, obviously. \o/

    Ideally, City spank United back to the stoneage and Swansea do the same to Arsenal.

    They are so lucky to have a shit side to bully after getting humped by chelsea.

    Well he isn't in the side because he's at QPR on loan, but that was still a mystifying decision.
  • Deleted user 25 March 2014 10:00:04
    He plays for QPR, that's why.

    We sent him out on loan to QPR for some strange reason (maybe he wanted to go?). Must something going on considering our lack of options at left back.

    He's a decent full back, albeit prone to the odd crazy moment.

    I heard the reason is that he plays for QPR

    I know he's at QPR on loan. I don't understand why.
