Obviously devastated , thought we edged it but was not confident when it came to pens, always has a similar feel to England
Question is though, can anyone please clarify the rule about a keeper deliberately hand balling a goalbound effort outside the box regardless of when it happens in the game and regardless of the occasion.
Simply, does the letter of the law say red or yellow or refs interpretation
Come on Town!!

That's a real shame then as we really had them on the back foot at the time and if the laws of the game had been interpreted properly we might have had a different outcome
Proud of my team today

Ref got it wrong. Probably cost us promotion. Players must be sick.

Straight red, it was goal bound and no chance of any player getting back to act as sweeper.  

The reason why the Ref bottled it was it was too early in the game and it was at their end, Linesman called it straight away.

Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

A player is sent off, however, if he prevents a goal or an obvious goalscoring
opportunity by deliberately handling the ball. This punishment arises not from
the act of the player deliberately handling the ball but from the unacceptable
and unfair intervention that prevented a goal being scored.

There was a clear goalscoring opportunity. He should have gone.

Spoke to some rovers fans on the tube and they said it was the clearest red they've ever seen. Can't dwell on what might have been though. The league is there for the taking next year. UTFM.

He denied a a clear goal scoring opportunity, made himself big with hands out and saved outside the box with his right arm.

Ollie Palmers shot was bang on target and the Rovers player running into the box would never have caught it.

The clearest red card you will ever ever see.

His arm wasn't in a 'normal' position. It was out to the right.

Red card.
