And regarding quick free-kicks, their only effort in the first half came from a quick free-kick awarded after the ball bounced up and hit Cardwell's hand.

The free-kick was taken about five yards too far forward, catching most of our midfield out of position and the ball was moving but the referee let them get away with that one!

The ball was taken from the right spot, Clarke clearly has a call from McKeown as he raises his hand to him and passes it back to him and it wasn't done as if it was a quickly taken free kick.

Their player clearly wasn't 10 yards away and gained an advantage as the ref was watching as he walked into the Coventry half.

A complete fuckup by all concerned.

I'm not blaming Macca but it was definitely his reaction that convinced the officials to give it. He only has a split second to think about it but if he just stands there with his hands on his hips, it doesn't get given.

What Clarke did, i have seen done countless times before and every now and again, an opposition player will nick the ball and start running with it, usually to be called back. The ref was looking elsewhere and to my mind didn't see how the situation developed. For all he knew, we had taken the free kick and genuinely lost possession. It's unfortunate but it happened and the record books say we lost 0-2.

They weren't brilliant but they were better than us and deservedly won the game. We may have scraped a draw if that goal hadn't have happened but i had the feeling they were going to score at some point anyway and we were not. Something else we are very poor at is coming from behind in games and we very rarely get a charge on to rescue some points.

Split second decision he didn't have time to debate it like you have.

It seems to me that some on here are using this incident to have a go at whoever it is they dislike.

Try to look at it as an unfortunate incident that no one is at fault and just put it down to bad luck and move on.

I agree. We will see the same sort of incident multiple times within each game we play, only the strikers don't usually have a punt and see if they can get away with it.

And if Macca had just stood there hands on hips and let the striker run past him and put it in the net AND the ref still awarded it (and based i his performance yesterday go knows what he would have done) we would all be slating Macca for not trying to stop him.

A total intercourse up by us...we gifted them a goal they were threatening to score anyway and from that point we were not in the contest.  A disappointing overall performance and result. However 44 games left and we move on to next week.

I have not seen any highlights to see what the ref was up to. Assuming it was an indirect free kick he should blow his whistle to signal a free kick and raise one arm keeping it raised until the ball has been kicked by the taker and a second player. In other words the kick is not complete until touched by a second player. In this case the forward. Is that when the ref put his arm down to signify this? The opponent must be 10 yards away from the free kick when is is taken. Doubtful in this case if it is being taken from Clarkes position.

Everybody was wrong,

Clarke was wrong to kick it,

The Coventry was wrong in not being 10yards,

Macca was wrong in cha sing after him,

The ref was wrong in not disallowing the goal,

AND

We were all wrong in thinking we could change anything.

A win next week and all will be well again.
