If a defender deliberately handballs to stop the ball going in the net should a goal be given, as well as a red card? At the moment unless the game is near the beginning it's definitely worth taking the sending off rather than conceding a goal. There is always the chance the penalty is saved.

I don't think so. I quite like the fact that the option is there for defenders to keep the ball out by any means and take the consequences of a penalty and a red card. It's such a rare event I'm not sure it's worth introducing a new rule anyway.

I think a penalty should be awarded every time a player loses his boot and I know a referee who thinks this is a good idea.

Yes if we are attacking, No if we are defending.

No. The Suarez handball and subsequent missed penalty was one of the best bits of World Cup drama ever!

It didn't have anything to do with technology though did it? The referee got the decision correct.
